Dive into the science of everything marine in honor of the global World Ocean Day, presented by the Miami Downtown Development Authority!
Discover the amazing work that scientists and organizations are doing to help save our reefs, protect our coastlines, and educate us about the importance of the ocean and the marine life that call it home.
Start World Ocean Day off right by giving back to our environment and protecting Biscayne Bay with a special Frost Science Museum Volunteers for the Environment (MUVE) cleanup around the Maurice A. Ferré Park Baywalk. Afterwards, a museum-wide celebration will begin on the Frost Science campus. Meet the conservationists behind Frost Science’s collaborative project with the NFL, 100 Yards of Hope, then take a zoomed in look at sand, microplastics and plankton before learning about the exciting work of various community event partners, including the topics of fish behavior, artificial reefs and ocean health.
The World Ocean Day event will also include a series of special dives in the Gulf Stream aquarium exhibit and presentations featuring special guests, including Mack Hollins from the Miami Dolphins and Master Chief SEAL(Ret) Steve “Gonzo” Gonzalez with Force Blue.
World Ocean Day event partners include the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Ocean Rescue Alliance, Nova Southeastern University, University of Miami Rescue a Reef, Miami Dade Reef Guard and more.
World Ocean Day 2021 programming is free with paid museum admission.
