Wildlife experts and scientists led a museum-wide celebration highlighting ocean life, fish behavior and the current state of our coral reefs.
LAUREN PASTRANA: New at 6:00, it is World Ocean Day, and the Frost Science Museum is celebrating sea life. Wildlife experts and scientists led a museum-wide celebration highlighting ocean life, fish behavior, and the current state of our coral reefs. We spoke with animal specialist Andy Dehart, who told us making small adjustments to your daily life can have a big impact on ocean ecosystems.
ANDY DEHART: People think this is an overwhelming problem and it's hopeless. There's tons of hope. There's lots of hope. There's so much hope that we can have these impacts in our own yard.
You can reduce your plastic use. You can reduce your fuel consumption. You can go to sustainable vehicles, like electric vehicles. All of these things have very small impacts that can be done at home.
LAUREN PASTRANA: He says World Ocean Day is another reminder of just how important it is to preserve our waters.
