Now in its 4th year, SOS Ocean Conservation Day is a free, one day, outdoor event not only fun, but an educational program for the entire family that will help bring awareness to our ocean and the efforts to preserve and protect our living coral reef ecosystems.

🐟 The SOS Mission this year: PROTECT THE ECOSYSTEM

🐒 Within the SOS Ocean Conservation area, ocean/marine conservation groups will engage in outreach with the general public about issues that could be addressed on a local level – which we so desperately need: corals – manatees – lionfish – beach/ocean debris – sharks – sea turtles – manta rays – whales – lobstering – water quality – wildlife rescue – mangroves – fishing regulations – ocean safety and more.

🐬 Keep an eye out for the colorful SOS Debris Art Donation Boxes located at each non-profit tent. 100% of the donations will go to the group(s) you would like to support to help them continue their efforts here in South Florida.
