Communities to commemorate World Oceans Day with cleanups, events

June 5, 2019

Communities across Costa Rica will commemorate Saturday’s World Oceans Day with cleanups and similar events.

The efforts aim to remind participants about the importance of the oceans and to make an impact — however small — in protecting Costa Rica’s 800 miles of shoreline.

World Oceans Day, held annually on June 8, offers “a unique opportunity to honor, help protect, and conserve our world’s shared ocean,” according to its website. Last year, Costa Rica was the worldwide host of the celebration.

In addition to their tourism appeal, oceans generate oxygen, provide food and regulate the climate, among many other benefits.

Below is a compilation of events we’ve found. We’re sure there are more, so if you know of others, let us know at alejandro@ticotimes.net.

  • The Jade Museum and Misión Tiburón are hosting a discussion in San José on June 5 at 6 p.m. More info here.
  • Marina Pez Vela and FECOP invite the public to a beach cleanup in Quepos. Contact Marina Pez Vela for more information at: 2774-9000. 
  • Conservación Osa and Lapathon 2019 will offer cultural events, games and talks at the Puerto Jimenez soccer field. More info here
