World Oceans Day

We’re celebrating World Oceans Day in a BIG way this year!

World Ocean’s Day is an annual global event that provides a unique opportunity for organizations to get involved in their own special ways to honor and celebrate our shared ocean that connects us all! 

By uniting together and with a special emphasis on engaging and connecting youth, we can significantly increase awareness and action, and the change needed to create a healthier ocean and a better future. 

No matter if we live on the coast or far inland, we all need a healthy ocean to survive and thrive. 

The ocean generates most of the oxygen we breathe, (up to 80%) helps feed us, cleans the water we drink and regulates our climate. By protecting our ocean, we also protect our climate and our future!
