The 8th June is "World Oceans Day" and this year the Nautilus Project says there are things we can be doing locally to preserve our biodiversity, in particular respecting and adhering to fishing regulations.
The theme for this year's campaign is “The Ocean: Life and Livelihoods” and it aims to kickstart a decade of intense conservation and sustainability.
The Nautilus Project held their 5th annual World Oceans Day school competition prize giving ceremony Monday evening at the Botanical Gardens.
Nautilus Project thanked the sponsors, teachers, entrants, parents, Environment Minister John Cortes and Duke of Edinburgh bronze participants.
The students had to research any local marine animal that features on the NEMO app.
