Why should I celebrate the ocean?

The world’s ocean:

  • Generates most of the oxygen we breathe
  • Helps feed us
  • Regulates our climate
  • Cleans the water we drink
  • Offers a pharmacopoeia of potential medicines
  • Provides limitless inspiration!

How can I celebrate?

SELFIE FOR THE SEA

Show the world how you plan on helping the ocean by participating in Selfie for the Sea. All you have to do is take a photo of yourself doing something for the ocean, then tag your photos with #WorldOceansday and #MoodyGardens (or email them to us at communications@moodygardens.org) and we'll feature some of the best photos on our website and social media sites. Here are some ideas of where you can take your selfies:

The Better Bag Challenge

We use over 1 million disposable plastic bags every minute. It’s time to change that! For #WorldOceansDay this year, take The Better Bag Challenge. Pledge to use zero disposable plastic bags for a whole year – the ocean will thank you! @World Oceans Day
