It's #WorldOceansDay ! 🌊 What's your favorite NC beach? Tell us below! 👇
Life began in the ocean 3.5 billion years ago, and as 71% of our planet's surface, it's still home to most major forms of life. 🌎
We love #oceans for different reasons. 💙 For some, our smallness by their shores is calming and clarifying. For others, the mysteries of their depth fuel our curiosity to look deeper. 🗝 For many, their abundance of creatures and plants embodies a playful power we admire. 🐬 Whatever the reason, the oceans feed our bodies and our spirits, and they deserve our love and respect.
While you're out in the salty #sun this #summer , think about the ocean as a single being. ✌🏼 Pick up litter wherever you are, choose organic sunscreens, volunteer with sea turtle rescues like #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital , volunteer to plant grasses along dunes, and notice the wonder of a topsy turvy life. 💧
Come learn about the oceans at #visitNCMNS in our Coastal North Carolina exhibit! See massive whale skeletons, dioramas of the coast's diverse ecosystems, and more! Sea ya soon. 😉
