An Invitation to Write About The Sea - Poems and Pictures

We invite children to write an eight line poem on particular topics and this years was inspired by the BBC Blue Planet 2. We were appalled at what is happening with our oceans, negatively affecting our sea and sea creatures.

We have had thousands of entries from primary age children. We believe education from the earliest age possible will help improve their understanding of the world around them.

Our winning poem for 2018 is The Bottle Fish is penned by Antonio Mo. We ordinarily include two topics for the chidlren to write about and from 2019 this will include an environmental topic each year. Entries for the next initiative will open 7th January 2019. However for the Oceans topic we will open entries from today 8th June until 30th April 2019. We will announce the winning Ocean/Sea related topic on World Oceans Day 2019 in support.

This initiative is 'not for profit' and a national poetry book is published each year with a selected number of poems that are showcased in an A4 size brightly coluoured book with £1.00 per book sale donated to the children's charity Barnardo's. We have an amazing panel of judges, made up of authors, illustrators, BBC Presenters, musicians, who all volunteer their time.

Andrews Bay World Oceans Day

Join us for a day of fun in the sun out on the water in Andrews Bay next to Seward Park in Seattle, Washington. A group of local Seattle boat owners and like-minded individuals invested in saving our planet's oceans will be tying up with each other out on the lake. We will have a professional from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Seattle office sharing his time and answering our questions about water related issues. We will also have ACLS, PALS, and BLS certified healthcare professionals teaching life saving techniques for common emergencies that occur on the water. Bring your boat, kayak, paddleboard, or other fun floatation device and join in on the fun.

We recommend that you pack a lunch, plenty of beverages, and bring a life preserver for each person in your group. Max capacity on each boat should be observed and respected. Follow all local boating laws and follow the directions of the state police and coast guard if approached. Feel free to review life saving algorithms prior to joining us out on the water. Individual boat space is limited so it is important that you supply your own water transportation. By participating in this event you agree to be completely liable for your own belongings and safety, and that of your.

We want to thank World Oceans Day for helping us share this event and for taking a stand with regards to saving our environment. United Medical Education stands with World Oceans Day and their mission to create awareness that drives action to clean our planet’s waters.

Aquarium marks World Oceans Day to boost awareness

World Oceans Day is June 8, but the ABQ BioPark Aquarium is extending the celebration over a few days.

“World Oceans Day started not very long ago to get people more aware of our oceans and all the problems connected with it,” said Pamela Dupzyk, education coordinator for the ABQ BioPark Aquarium and Botanic Garden. “So we show movies in the theater about the oceans and a lot of the problems in the oceans like overfishing and plastics. We have a docent station talking about what the cause is for that year, and as well as other things you can do to help protect the ocean.”

This year’s World Oceans Day theme is preventing plastic pollution.

“One of the things that we will be doing is handing out information and asking people to take the plastic challenge to decrease the amount of plastic you use for a week and show you how you can decrease it in one week,” Dupzyk said. “One big way is for us to say no to straws in restaurants or wherever. Don’t use a straw because right now plastic straws are a huge problem and are going into the ocean. It has a huge environmental impact. There are 500 million plastic straws used every day. That is so many (straws).”

Attendees also will learn other easy but significant ways to make a difference, including limiting the use of and recycling plastic bottles and using reuseable bags or paper bags instead of plastic bags.
