Gayle Anderson was live in Huntington Beach where Orange County Coastkeeper presents its’ Annual Kids Ocean Day on May 28. More than 1,000 students to “Unite For The Ocean” in Huntington Beach by shape shifting into ocean artwork.

Children who don’t interact with the natural environment grow up not understanding its importance. Kids Ocean Day aims to address this problem across California. This annual, statewide celebration is a call to action for the protection of the world’s oceans. The Huntington Beach event will welcome over 1,300 students from inland and underserved schools to “Unite For The Ocean” by participating in a beach cleanup and a human artwork display.

Kids Ocean Day educates the next generation on the importance of protecting our coastal resources and empowers students to keep the ocean clean by keeping their communities clean. The program focuses on reaching children in underserved and inland schools by getting them outside and interacting with the environment.

This event is part of a series of Kids’ Adopt-A-Beach Cleanups, held at six beaches along the California coast as part of the 22nd Annual Kids Ocean Day Adopt-A-Beach Cleanup event.
