We held our second Google Hangout On Air this week, titled: What's the story behind World Oceans Day? - An Insider's Look.
We spoke with Bill Mott, director, The Ocean Project, and World Oceans Day partner, on how the event came to be - from the early days of discussing possibilities to this year's plans to make it bigger and more impactful than ever.
We also chatted with Jim Wharton, a NMEA Executive Committee member, and director of Conservation and Education at the Seattle Aquarium, about how NMEA colleagues are working together at local and global levels to celebrate and support World Oceans Day.
Check out some of the fun initiatives that were discussed, including ways in which you can get involved!
