Celebrate World Oceans Day with a Special Screening of
Saving Jamaica Bay
June 8 marks World Oceans Day -- a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future.
We are incredibly excited to mark this important day with a special screening of Saving Jamaica Bay at the one-and-only New York Aquarium, in partnership with New York City Council Members Mark Treyger and Jimmy Van Bramer, along with New York City Audubon and the American Littoral Society.
The undersea world is the beating heart of Jamaica Bay, and after many years of hard work and advocacy, the bay's waters are cleaner and healthier than they have been in generations.
We are looking forward to celebrating this progress with a very special evening at the Aquarium. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for drinks and hors d'oeuvres, you can meet the cast and crew, watch a fantastic film at sunset --- and there will be a sea lion show, too! Your ticket price of $20 will also help support the great work that the New York Aquarium does to protect our natural world.
