Wear Blue and Tell Two!

In association with World Oceans Day, The Ocean Project has created an innovative way to promote their ocean conservation message. They are asking their partners, such as zoos, aquariums, and museums to wear blue on World Oceans Day in honor of the ocean. They also urge people to explain to visitors why they are wearing blue, and tell them two things they likely don’t know about our ocean and how they can help.

A public opinion research survey results that The Ocean Project recently released shows that people look towards zoos, aquariums, and museums for guidance on how to help save the ocean, and that they are willing to help if they knew the actions they needed to take. This proves that if we explain to visitors how they can make a difference, we may see more people joining in the fight to save our blue beauty.

So on June 8th, World Oceans Day, search through your closet and find all the blue you own! Since most aquarium employees have to wear blue shirts already, maybe add a little flare and wear blue socks as well. Finally, tell some friends about World Oceans Day, and how they can help!
