The StFX Biology Department will be hosting their 5th Annual World Oceans Day 2018 on June 9!
World Oceans Day, a global ocean celebration, promotes Ocean awareness through exploration, education, conservation, initiatives and beach clean-ups around the world.
This year’s theme is: Preventing plastic pollution and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean.
What to expect?
There will be lots to see and do during the event. Be prepared to touch unusual sea critters, interact with the presenters and learn about local and tropical marine organisms.
There will be displays of preserved specimens (including whale bones, sting rays, cuttlefish, octopus) and many live microorganisms including sea anemones, sea urchins, sea stars, a variety of crabs, and our famous blue lobster!
Also on the list, a sea-weed station, make-your-own fossil print station, face painting, ocean themed crafts, and much more.
