KIDS' OCEAN DAY 2018

KIDS' OCEAN DAY 2018, Showing San Francisco event organized by Marine Science Institutute

In honor of World Oceans Day, 8,000 California students took part in the statewide Kids' Ocean Day Adopt-A-Beach cleanups at six events from Humboldt to San Diego. They learned about ocean pollution prevention at school and then took a field trip to enjoy a beach day, clean the coast, and form amazing art messages on the sand. In 2018, the "Making Waves" theme demonstrated the children's power to raise awareness and make a difference about plastic pollution in the ocean. To see more images and learn more about this annual program funded by the WHALE TAIL® License Plate, visit OceanDay.net.

In honor of World Oceans Day 2016, a short video was released to showcase nearly 20 years of aerial art formations as part of Kids' Ocean Day. We hope you enjoy the video.
