Celebrating Our Ocean Planet

Celebrating Our Ocean Planet

The Celebrating Our Ocean Planet campaign has come to an end. Thank you for joining us. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Leading up to the start of World Oceans Month in June, we celebrated our Blue Planet through images from the field, videos, and interactive talks. Each week, we focused on a different deep-ocean theme as outlined below.

On June 2, we announced the winners of our Explorer’s Choice Photo Contest by releasing them as a series of digital e-cards for you to use to help spread the love for our ocean during World Oceans Month.
