More than 1,000 events were scheduled nationwide. Many people attended beach cleanups or information sessions, while others made art installations and attended ocean-themed exhibitions. In Homer, Jodee Lynn, founder of the Alaskan Ocean Cleanup Crew in Homer hosts events weekly: “I moved here two years ago and I had the intention when I moved up here to do something for the environment, and I really wanted to do something with the ocean in particular. Since I started the group I’ve had people contact me, and coming out to help clean the beaches. At our last event we got a lot of trash.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享World Oceans Day aims to raise awareness with a series of events.
