"This year’s theme focuses on our ocean’s great diversity of life and how we can all help in its conservation. Since everyone has a favorite ocean animal, we are interested in connecting their favorite species with what they can do to help conserve our world's ocean.
Pick your favorite and protect it - try to pick just one favorite; it’s hard!
We can help motivate people to take conservation action:
Together, we can make a difference!"

*First, wear blue in honor of the ocean.
*Secondly, tell people two things they likely don't know about our ocean and how they can help.
I've shared one with you, do you know another?
My biggest pet peeve: LITTER..
My solution for keeping our beautiful emerald waters and sugary white sand litter free:
so simple and easy..
whatever you bring with you...
be sure to take your trash back with you..
and if someone else' litter was left, pick it up also..
They are easily tossed about by those wonderful ocean breezes..
and can bob along the waves..
to be mistaken as scrumptious jelly fish hor d'oerves by sea turtles..
who are already on the endangered list..
and we all know what happens when ingested..
and not a merciful quick and easy death..
after all .. this is OUR beach..
yours and mine.
as well as the birds above and fishes and turtles below..
Thank you all for celebrating World Oceans Day with me..
