World Ocean Day

June 8th, 2019

June 8th is a day set aside to celebrate the life-giving role of oceans.  The Government of Canada proposed the idea of a World Ocean Day in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and it has been celebrated internationally ever since. What better place to do that than the New Brunswick Aquarium and Marine Centre?
What's happening?
For students: A presentation on good environment practices will get students in Grades two to four pumped up about protecting the world's oceans by the help of a kiosk with posters and pamphlets that will encourage everyone to take the message home .
Everyone is welcome to participate in our "World Ocean Day" booth, a fun, educational event organized every year by the New Brunswick Aquarium and Marine centre staff.
