Local attraction celebrates World Oceans Day in South Florida!

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, you will find that we Floridians love to spend time with our marine friends to celebrate World Oceans Day on the Treasure Coast!

On June 8th, the Florida Oceanographic Society offered ½ priced admission to celebrate the international holiday.

According to the event website, “A healthy world ocean is critical to our survival.  Every year, World Oceans Day provides a unique opportunity to honor, help protect, and conserve the world’s oceans.  Oceans are very important:

  • They generate most of the oxygen we breathe
  • They help feed us
  • They regulate our climate
  • They clean the water we drink
  • They offer a pharmacopoeia of medicines
  • They provide limitless inspiration!


Despite the huge challenges facing the world’s ocean, by working together we can support a healthy ocean that is able to sustainably provide for the billions of humans, plants, and animals that depend on it every day.  On World Oceans Day, people around our blue planet celebrate and honor the ocean, which connects us all.  Get together with your family, friends, community, and the planet to start creating a better future.  Working together, we can and will protect our shared ocean.  We hope you will be a part of this growing global celebration!

The Ocean Project has promoted and coordinated this event since 2002.  We work in partnership with hundreds of organizations and networks, including World Ocean Network, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and our activities are supported thanks to many others.  Thank you also to the Government of Canada for proposing the idea of a World Ocean Day, at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, and to the United Nations for officially recognizing June 8th as World Oceans Day, since 2008.
