You can also host a walk, run or a street parade! Encourage kids and adults to dress up as their favorite sea creatures and donate all proceeds to a local conservation organization. Encourage participants to attach fun facts about their sea creature to their costumes and carry educational banners about World Oceans Day, ocean issues, and ocean conservation.

Sailing & Swimming

Host an athletic event related to the ocean, such as a swimming or sailing race. Then, donate the proceeds to a conservation program or organization in your area. Public races are a great way to get everyone outside and thinking about the ocean on World Oceans Day!
