‘Sea’ You on World Oceans Day!
If you are eager to share your passion for protecting precious oceans, rivers, and streams, World Oceans Day, which is June 8, offers a perfect opportunity. Lively festivals, rallies, and film screenings are among the hundreds of World Oceans Day weekend events around the planet — on land, at sea, and even online.
In 2018, March for the Ocean in Washington, D.C. served as the main attraction. For 2019, March for the Ocean is focusing on regional events. “Dozens [of events are] being added every day,” says Samantha Mackiewicz, director of World Oceans Day. “The events are educational, meaningful, and impactful.”
We encourage you to find local ways to help support this great cause. –> Find An Event Near You!
