Thank you for joining us for a fantastic World Ocean Day Celebration in 2022. Please check back for updates on our 2023 event, to be held on Sunday, June 11th.
World Ocean Day is a global celebration to honor and celebrate our one shared ocean that connects us all. WOD supports SSC’s mission to inspire conservation of our Blue Planet. Let’s all come together to celebrate and take action for our shared blue planet—one ocean and one climate—which connect us all. This year is extra special as we are celebrating 30 years of providing exceptional coastal and ocean education!
Meet local scientists, divers, artists and conservationists who are passionate about protecting our one world ocean.
Mark your calendars and join us for hands-on games, educational activities, naturalist-led tide pooling sessions, food trucks, and more!
