Ko Olina Resort, Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, University of Hawai`i Academy for Creative Media System, NOAA, Polynesian Voyaging Society and other community partners are hosting this FREE public event to celebrate World Oceans Day, Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, and the Mahalo Hawai`i Sail. Festivities will coincide with World Oceans Day events around the world. The celebration at Ko Olina will include ocean education and sustainability activities with a strong career focus, live entertainment, food for purchase, and a special movie Premiere on the beach at sunset.
The global theme and focus for World Oceans Day 2018 is plastic pollution prevention and cleaning the ocean of marine litter. World Oceans Day is a zero waste event, a commitment to protecting our oceans and marine life from plastic debris and eliminating waste to landfills. We will have Zero Waste stations for your recyclables, green waste and food waste. Please bring your reusable water bottle to use at our water stations. World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future.
Despite the huge challenges facing the future of our world oceans, we in Hawai’i believe by working together, we can support a healthy ocean that is able to sustain humans, plants, and animals. This event will provide an opportunity to learn about what we can do to protect our ocean resources, including our endangered monk seals and other marine protected resources.
The World Oceans Day Celebration at Ko Olina is generously supported by Hawaiian Airlines, Hawai`i Gas, Hawai’i Tourism Authority and Ohana Broadcast Company,
