The Oceanographic Teaching Stations Inc.’s (OTS) Roundhouse Aquarium will be holding a celebration for World Oceans Day to be presented virtually on the aquarium’s Facebook page on June 8 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The Roundhouse will be posting educational, interactive, and fun posts every hour, on the hour in honor of World Oceans Day. During this all day, virtual event, viewers will learn about some of the animals in the aquarium and how we’re all connected to the ocean, and watch amazing footage from the Manhattan Beach pier.
Additionally, there will be some ocean themed crafts and activities to do at home, exploring and teaching ocean science to people of all ages.
“The ocean plays a major role in everyone’s lives and what humans do greatly impacts it. That is the lesson that World Oceans Day aims to teach and to celebrate and honor what connects us all: the ocean,” said Grace Adams, executive director of the Oceanographic Teaching Stations, Inc.
The United Nations officially recognized World Oceans Day in 2008. Now celebrated annually throughout the world, it has been transformed into an international day of celebration that supports worldwide sustainability goals and initiatives to manage and protect the ocean and its resources.
