"I hope for your help to explore and protect the wild ocean in ways that will restore the health and, in so doing, secure hope for humankind. Health to the ocean means health for us."
- Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer
Protecting the ocean is an important task for everyone. Here are some ways to help protect the ocean mindfully:
Reduce plastic use: Reduce your use of single-use plastics, such as straws, plastic bags, and water bottles. Instead, opt for reusable alternatives, like metal or bamboo straws, cloth bags, and refillable water bottles.
Properly dispose of waste: Dispose of waste properly by recycling, composting, and using waste disposal systems that are designed to prevent waste from entering the ocean.
Use ocean-friendly products: Use products that are ocean-friendly and free of harmful chemicals that can harm marine life.
Support ocean conservation efforts: Support organizations that work to protect the ocean and its wildlife, such as marine sanctuaries and research institutions.
Avoid harming marine life: Avoid activities that can harm marine life, such as fishing or boating in protected areas, feeding or touching marine animals, and purchasing products made from endangered or threatened species.
Spread awareness: Educate others about the importance of ocean conservation and the impact of human actions on the ocean.
Participate in beach cleanups: Join or organize beach cleanups to remove trash and debris from the shoreline and prevent it from entering the ocean.
By taking these mindful steps to help protect the ocean, we can help preserve this vital ecosystem for future generations. Remember to reduce plastic use, properly dispose of waste, use ocean-friendly products, support conservation efforts, avoid harming marine life, spread awareness, and participate in beach cleanups.
Yesterday we brought our little one to Crab Cove, Alameda. We saw squirrels and geese in all sizes from babies to grownups walking and running around. Ocean, beach, grass, trees, pond, animals, sky, clouds … it’s such a wonderful place for nature explorations.
They also have a visitor center and 800-gallon aquarium where we all can learn about the wonders in San Francisco Bay Area, too!
We’re so grateful to live just 5 minutes drive away from Crab Cove, and even more grateful for Regional Park District who takes such great care of these areas to preserve the natural and cultural resources in the Regional Parks and provide healthful recreation -- for present and future generations.
Happy World Oceans Day 2022 🌊
