the wonders of the sea
This year for World Oceans Day, we'd like to focus on the wonders of the sea.Did you know that the ocean has almost 230,000 animal species in it? And these are just the species that we know about. And there maybe 2 million ocean animals that we don't even know about yet. Of these species, 1,349 are threatened or endangered. Obviously, to help protect our oceans ' wildlife and diversity, we need to get the word out.That's why, this year, we are having a Sister Species programme.This is like a Sister City programme, where cities from around the world are paired up with each other, so that they can learn more about the world. Except in this case, people choose different animal species and pair up with them.They will then do research on that species, and spend the next year keeping track of any news regarding that species and telling others about their wonderful sister species.To help kick this off, we will meet this Tuesday, June 8, at the city aquarium at10a.m.to see some presentations by wildlife experts. Then you will be free to roam around the aquarium to find a species you would like to pair up with. Bring your notebook, sketchpad, camera, and of course, a friend. See you there!
