World Ocean’s Day teaches ua bout the sea

Rangers in Dumfries and Galloway are organising the local leg of World’s Oceans Day next week.

Would you like a day out at the sea shore? Would you like to learn more about the things that live there? Would you like to make shelters, draw in the sand, go rock pooling, help geese to fly with the goose catapult, test the acidity of the sea water and have lots of fun on the beach? Well if you answered yes then our World Oceans Day event is the thing for you. Go down to Rockcliffe beach on the 7th of June between 11am and 4 pm and find out about the sea around us and how important it is to us.

The Dumfries and Galloway Council and National Trust for Scotland Rangers have invited lots of other people from other organisations to come along with their activities so that there will be lots to do. You will find us in and around the big tent on the beach.

World Oceans Day is celebrated all around the world with events celebrating the oceans, seas, the life in them and how we can interact with them sustainably. It started after the Earth Summit at Rio and we have been celebrating it here in Dumfries and Galloway since. It is great to think of all those other people having a great time thinking about the seas that connect us all at the same time.
