Activists Spread Awareness for World Oceans Day
Today is the 17th annual World Oceans Day, and community members gathered to celebrate the occasion.
With a little music and a few beers at Millennial Brewing in Downtown Fort Myers, activists were hoping to spread the message.
“We’ve got marine life dying from ingesting straws and plastic bags, it’s a crisis, and we have our waterways being gradually contaminated by human activity,” said Casey Schulberg, executive director of Calusa Waterkeeper.
Groups like Calusa Waterkeeper wanted to bring awareness to not just the polluted oceans, but also the rivers and estuaries that need protection.
