World Ocean Day 2008

World Ocean Day passed with record high temperatures for June 8th in much of the northeast United States. Just another favor of Mother Nature to get us all to the ocean. Many organizations registered their event with the Ocean Project’s World Ocean Day Event List service. Stories of fun times had continue to pour in from around the world. Check out these two event pictures from the USA and Costa Rica:


One of many captured moments of fun and frolic for the sake of the ocean sent from The Ocean Project’s partners

The beach communities surrounding Playas del Coco, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, collaborated to celebrate World Ocean Day 2008. Marine artist, Carlos Hiller, with the help of more than 70 local children (working through nonprofit children’s association, Proyecto de Luz), created this beautiful community mural.

And, of course, start making plans for next year.
