Ensuring a healthy ocean involves raising awareness of how we can change our daily activities to improve our marine waters. The activities and programs provided during our celebration will highlight the importance of water stewardship and the effects our daily activities have on Gorge waterway ecosystems and organisms, including Coho salmon, Pacific herring, cutthroat trout, and the Olympia oyster.

In celebration of this international day, World Fisheries Trust and the Township of Esquimalt are hosting a World Oceans Day event with interpretive walks, guided Songhees canoe tours of the Gorge, a performance by the Lekwungen dancers, sea creature touch tanks, crafts, games, live music and food! Many other local organizations that share an interest in our ocean will be joining the celebration with informative displays and ocean-related activities for all ages.
