Ty Warner Sea Center’s World Oceans Day Event

Come celebrate World Oceans Day at the Ty Warner Sea Center where the Environmental Defense Center (EDC), along with the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, will debut a Public Service Announcement in efforts to raise awareness about ocean acidification (OA) and highlight how OA affects sea life, businesses, and the entire food web.
