At the Dr. Seuss-inspired event, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy and learn about the ocean and its inhabitants through engaging activities and games, including a Seussical Scavenger Hunt and Dr. Seuss Fortune Fun. Guests will also experience feeding demonstrations of swell sharks, sea anemones, sunflower stars and seahorses.

The Environmental Defense Center, along with the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, will debut a public service announcement in efforts to raise awareness about ocean acidification and highlight how OA affects businesses, livelihoods and wildlife.

Guests will also learn about conservation issues at World Oceans Day by meeting with conservation experts from Santa Barbara Channelkeeper and the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
