WORLD OCEAN DAY 2011

Sometimes it's not what the sanctuary does, but what its partners do in the community that inspires ocean conservation. Dallas World Aquarium focused on Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary during its World Ocean Day celebration on June 8, 2011.

Pictured below are some of the coloring pages completed by their young visitors, as well as creative artwork from 2nd grade students at Eustace Elementary in East Texas.
