Collaboration for Conservation
Paddle Out For Sharks 2013
World Oceans Day provides a truly unique opportunity to capture imaginations and engage millions of people in celebrating and protecting our ocean. To create a global celebration for our ocean with the greatest possible conservation impact, we are seeking Presenting Sponsors and other Supporting Partners to help underwrite our efforts and launch collaborative cause-related marketing initiatives.
With the right partners, we will ensure the strategic growth of World Oceans Day, on June 8, as a powerful rallying event that taps into people's shared values for a healthy planet, and inspires citizens worldwide to make healthy ocean decisions in June and year round.
Why sponsor World Oceans Day?
Our Ocean Matters
- Market research shows people care about the ocean and want to help with solutions
- Humanity depends on a healthy ocean (e.g. more than half of the oxygen we breathe comes from the ocean)
- Nearly one of every two people on our planet relies on the ocean for their primary source of protein
- The ocean drives economies around the globe through industries, such as shipping, tourism, and seafood
- Natural barriers, such as salt marshes and coral reefs, protect us from natural disasters (and trying to replace them would cost trillions of dollars)
