The Shipwreck Museum, Rock a Nore Road, Hastings joins with the local branch of the United Nations Association to mark World Oceans Day and to remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life.

We invite you to attend one of three special free presentations at 11.00, 2.00 and 3.00 at which speakers will show the importance of the oceans in creating the world economy from which we all benefit and will also illustrate the incomparable beauty of the ocean environment. The presentation will include extracts from the recent David Attenborough film. The event is free but please pre-book a ticket by phoning the Museum (01424 437452) as a maximum of only 40 places are available for each presentation which lasts approximately 45 minutes.

The oceans are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe. The purpose of the day is to illustrate the impact of human actions on the seas, and to raise awareness of the importance of the sustainable management of the world’s oceans. They are a major source of food and medicines and a critical part of the biosphere.

In the end, it is a day to celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.
