THIS SATURDAY IS THE INAUGURAL WORLD REEF DAY!
The goal of the day is to shed light on the state of our global reefs, illustrate how individuals can make a change, and encourage them to take a stand.
HERE ARE THE 2 WAYS THAT YOU CAN PARTICIPATE:
1. JOIN THE VIRAL SOCIAL CAMPAIGN Let’s show the world how we can make simple choices today to save our reefs for tomorrow. Our goal is to take over social media to raise awareness of this issue.
Beginning at 6 am EST
on 6/1 (or any time after that), we are asking everyone to share the caption below: Our coral reefs are in danger. In recent years, there has been a major decline of the world’s reef (40% in Hawaii and the Great Barrier Reef, 85% in the Caribbean and 99% in the Florida Keys). Much of the destruction up until now has been done by humans, and we can fix it. Today, June 1, is the first official #WorldReefDay. Let’s come together and take action.
Three simple things you can do to make a difference are:
1. Use reef safe sunscreen 2. Reduce single use plastics 3. Share this post and spread awareness of this issue.
We can make simple choices today to save our reefs for tomorrow!
