We are joining the global effort to raise awareness of the ocean & threats!

On World Ocean Day, people everywhere can celebrate and take action for our shared ocean, which connects us all. Get together with your family, community, and /or your company, and join with millions of others around our blue planet to start creating a better future.

By working together, we can — and will — protect and restore our shared ocean. Join this growing global celebration in June and continue to grow the engagement year-round!

On World Ocean Day the Galway Atlantaquaria is organizing activities online and in public!

On the 8th of June at 11am We will be hosting the ‘Explore Your Shore’ rockpool adventure on Grattan Beach, Salthill.

About Explore Your Shore

Ireland has 3,171 km of coastline and yet we have relatively few records of intertidal and coastal marine species. We lack a strong tradition of the public recording intertidal species. Explore Your Shore is a Citizen Science project funded by the Environmental Protection Agency focused on increasing our knowledge of the distribution of our intertidal species, exploring their potential as bio-indicators of water quality and climate change, and highlighting actions we can all take to tackle water pollution and climate change.

As we will be walking amongst the tide pools wellies would be welcome!

Online re-Launch of Galway Ukers Songs for the Ocean

Celebrate the Ocean with the Galway Ukers, for ‘Ocean Love’ written and created for European Maritime Day 2021. Connecting the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean. First produced and recorded during the lockdown in Ireland, this song speaks of the connections that our ocean provides between us. The songs are introduced by Maria Vittoria Marra, from the Galway Ukers.
