You can see more information about Ocean Watch’s 25,000-mile Around the Americas research voyage at this link http://oceantoday.noaa.gov/aroundtheamericas/ .

We will sail on Ocean Watch to access marine animal and plant survey sites, and collect water samples. She will also be the center piece of our public information day on the 4th of July, where Ocean Watch 4-H Marine Ambassadors will practice their newly acquired skills to teach the public about our oceans. The 4-H Marine Ambassador’s Mission is to raise awareness about the health of the ocean and to show how changes are impacting various ecosystems and human life. Check out the tentative camp schedule.
