2016 World Ocean's Day

Come and celebrate World Ocean’s Day at The University of Texas Marine Science Institute. This year the global celebration focuses on “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet”. We will be showing “Bag it” directed by Susan Beraza and conducted by Jeb Berrier. “Bag it” dives into what plastic is and how it affects our beautiful ocean in an energetic way. This program is FREE and includes a craft activity, printing marine life on totes that participants can keep and re-use. You can be inspired to be a steward of the future, and collaboratively we can protect the planet.

We look forward to SEAing you there, together WE can make a difference!
