"Wear Blue and Tell Two" for World Oceans Day

With the newly official World Oceans Day coming up June 8th, The Ocean Project encourages Partners to launch a "Wear Blue and Tell Two" campaign to celebrate. Participation is easy: wear blue in honor of the ocean, and tell people two things they likely don't know about the ocean and ways they can take action.

In honor of the ocean on this special day, we are asking individuals everywhere - especially those working at ZAMs, as well as those at NGOs, agencies, universities, schools, and businesses - to help spread the blue.

The Ocean Project's recent public opinion research - to be released publicly on June 3 - indicates that the public is looking to zoos, aquariums, and museums (ZAMs) to learn more about ocean issues and how they can help; through this campaign, we hope to help our Partners find new ways to meet this need.
