On June 9, 2018, World Oceans Day weekend, Carl Safina will participate as a speaker and marcher in Blue Frontier’s March for the Ocean (M4O). The campaign will organize mass events including activities on the water, marches, and rallies in our nation’s capital and around the country in order to protect our human and wild communities and restore the blue in our red, white and blue. Blue Frontier Campaign and 80+ partners will mobilize an inclusive and diverse constituency to ensure we have a healthy ocean and clean water for future generations. The goal of March For The Ocean is for people to gather in support of solutions and awareness of problems plaguing our blue planet.
