World Oceans Day Celebration at the Aquarium
June 8, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium as we celebrate World Oceans Day! We’ll have an ocean full of activities at the Aquarium, including games, scavenger hunts, and crafts! Our Dorothy Green Room will feature regular screenings of the Octonauts episode “The Great Algae Escape,” which teaches kids about marine pollution.
Why is a healthy world ocean important? The ocean generates approximately 70% of all the oxygen we breathe, provides food for over a billion people, helps regulate our climate and is a neverending source of inspiration and wonder.
Check out our citizen science, educational, training and volunteer opportunities happening this month around L.A. County with Heal the Bay and at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium.
