For the second year in a row, hundreds of aquariums, zoos, schools, and other organizations will host fun-filled "1, 2, 3 and the Seas: Counting on You" family events inspired by Dr. Seuss's One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
Each year, World Oceans Day (June 8) brings local attention to the global issue of climate change and its impact on ocean and anim al life.
By reaching children through Dr. Seuss's beloved classic, the celebrations help to build enthusiasm for caring for our environment from an early age.
Participating locations will host events on or near June 8th, drawing on Dr. Seuss's tale of whacky fish and other silly creatures with the goal of encouraging children of all ages to creatively examine how numbers and counting play an important role in protecting our oceans.
Children will also discover the importance of inventorying different species through activities using number and identification skills.
