World Ocean Day

This afternoon the WOA’s English-Speaking Club Gabfest (Window on America center in Dnipro, Ukraine) had a session dedicated to the World Ocean Day observed annually on June, 08.
The World Oceans Day theme for 2017 was "Our Oceans, Our Future". The main focus in global discussions and events was on plastic pollution prevention and cleaning the ocean of marine litter.
The group was offered several educational videos that introduced the new ocean vocabulary, the names of the Oceans in English and the things that Ocean gives the humans.

The highlight of the session was a travel video about the Florida Keys. The Florida Keys are a coral cay archipelago located off the southern coast of Florida, forming the southernmost portion of the continental United States. It offers amazing range of activities: sport fishing, snorkeling, diving. Creeks, coral and costumed spectacles are other lures in the area. Highway 1 is a spectacular ribbon tying together the islands and atolls of this paradise between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic.
WOA’s volunteer Mr. Jason was present at the session and added some interesting stories about the Florida Keys.
Participants number – 25 persons.
