Celebrate World Ocean's Day with our fun filled webinar

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Global will be celebrating World Oceans day with a fun filled webinar on 8 June at 16:00 – 17:00 UTC on Zoom. Join ocean experts from Reef Relief to learn more about threats to our oceans and actions we can take to help. Roots & Shoots groups will be sharing some of their projects they are conducting to help oceans and ocean wildlife, and participants can look forward to exciting activities with our hosts, Carissa Welton and Laura Hernandez. 

Meet our co-hosts:
