Join the Maritime Museum of BC and Ocean Networks Canada as we partner with businesses and community organizations within the Inner Harbour and surrounding areas for our first annual World Oceans Day Festival, June 8th -10th.
Lots of exciting hands-on activities are planned for kids, as well as a lively outdoor exhibition featuring organizations that are actively involved with our oceans. World Fisheries Trust , CETUS society, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and SeaChange all plan to be there, and the list continues to grow! A special afternoon speaker series will offer short talks from top marine researchers and graduate students on leading edge marine projects. There will be an art contest showcasing the beautiful images and video from researchers who are studying our blue planet. We will discover our impact on this fragile ecosystem, how we are helping it and how it sustains our everyday life. This event is free and will be open to the public June 9th and 10th from 11am-5pm outside in beautiful Bastion Square and inside at the Maritime Museum of BC.
