Celebrate our Ocean! Opportunities with World Oceans Day 2020.

This year's conservation action focus in on uniting conservation action to grow the global movement calling on world leaders to protect 30% of our blue planet by 2030 ("30x30"). By safeguarding at least 30% of our land and ocean through a network of highly protected areas we can help ensure a healthy home for all!

With a special emphasis on engaging and empowering youth, since 2002 The Ocean Project has been the global leader for coordinating and collaboratively growing World Oceans Day, rallying the world in June and growing a worldwide movement for year-round action.

The Ocean Project advances conservation in collaboration with aquariums, zoos, museums, youth, and many other partners in a growing global network of 2,000+ organizations in 140+ countries For 20 years, The Ocean Project has been applying the findings from some of the most comprehensive public opinion and market research ever conducted, to help our network of partners be as effective as possible for conservation impact. We collaborate with our partners to accelerate effective individual and societal actions on the critical issues facing our blue planet.
