SeaChange: A Tidal Shift is Upon Us

World Oceans Day is the time to make a choice, make a change and act on behalf of the ocean that has given us so much.

Published June 08, 2018

The ocean accounts for more than 70 percent of the planet, and it supports all life. It is the air we breathe; the food we eat; the water we drink.

We have always needed the ocean, and now the ocean needs us.

It has absorbed the heat of our modern world, tolerating our habits, and is forever changed–as are we, navigating extreme weather and a changing climate.

It is time for a #SeaChange.

It starts with sharing the wonders and lessons of the aquatic world with our city and our guests; restoring the intricate aquatic habitats of the Chesapeake Bay; bringing nature back to neighborhoods across Baltimore that thirst for the benefits of green space and fresh air.

We know that understanding what lies beneath the water’s surface can inspire us to protect it.

It starts with you, wherever you are.

Because you are the Sea Change that the world has been waiting for, and when we work together, we are as powerful as the ocean itself.

Join us.
