Celebrating the Ocean

Hello fellow ocean lovers!

World Oceans Day is nearly upon us again. You might recall that five years ago was the first World Oceans Day officially recognized by the United Nations, but people have been celebrating World Ocean(s) Day around the world informally for two decades... And as many of you already know, COARE started celebrating it right here in the San Francisco Bay Area seven years ago.

As we've been fully engaged in a number of other consuming projects, we're limiting our WOD activities this year to participation in a single event.

If you're near Central California, come join us at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, where we'll be celebrating all weekend. We are honored to be one of the few organizations the Aquarium has invited to participate, so we'll have a display there and will be talking with Aquarium members, guests, and visitors about some of our projects and plans. At least two of our board members will be present, and a few of our new interns will be there as well, so please stop by and say hello!

The celebration will take place on Saturday and Sunday, 07-08 June 2014, and runs from 9:30am to 6:00pm both days. For more information about the Aquarium or this event, visit the Monterey Bay World Oceans Day website.

If you live elsewhere, you may be able to find WOD events almost anywhere in the world by visiting World Oceans Day website.

New Interns

Speaking of new interns, we're excited about the new additions to our team these next few weeks. Our new interns bring with them a great deal of energy and enthusiasm, and they already know that they are going to help change the world.

Tyler Crozier joins us as a Marketing Intern and Cameron Clevidence will be tackling some of our policy efforts. Working directly in some of our programs will be Jude Ong, Tina Drake, and Jiaxi Wang. Finally, Nicole Hack joins us as our inaugural OWUSS Ocean Conservation Intern. Please help us give them a warm welcome and much encouragement!
