Aquarium will host virtual NOAA and Our Planet Day on Nov. 7, 2020

On Saturday, November 7, 2020, at 9:00 a.m., the Aquarium of the Pacific will host a virtual event with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA and Our Planet Day is an annual event at the Aquarium, but this year it will be held virtually, with sessions streamed online. The theme for this year’s event is Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean.

NOAA scientists and experts will present sessions on the marine life they study and monitor along our coast, including Pacific salmon, seals and sea lions, sea turtles, giant sea bass, and abalone. They will share educational tools for children, winning entries from the NOAA Day Art Contest, and a session on sustainable recreational fishing.
Learn how NOAA, a government agency, works to understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment to help protect people and property and to conserve and manage coastal and marine resources.

On Saturday, November 7, 2020, 9:00 a.m. PT – Videos go live on the Aquarium’s website and are available to view any time.
