The Seas with Nemo & Friends for World Oceans Day

Everyone’s heard the saying, “there are plenty of fish in the sea,” but did you know that those fish take advantage of plenty of unique features to get food – and avoid becoming food themselves? Adaptations include different types of camouflage, venom and even false eye spots. Guests can find out about these amazing adaptations by playing “Sea-nanigans,” one of the special activities taking place at The Seas with Nemo & Friends at Epcot, June 8, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., in celebration of World Oceans Day.

In another fun activity, guests can test their knowledge of how much food different sea creatures eat, including clownfish, manatees, dolphins and sharks. And speaking of sharks, they are the stars of another activity that helps guests understand that sharks are special, not scary, and very important to the health of the oceans.

In addition to inspiring people to care about the oceans at The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Disney is proud of being able to help by supporting marine conservation projects worldwide. Through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund and other company funding, more than $4 million have been provided to support the conservation of marine wildlife and habitats.

Remember, no matter where we live we are all connected to the oceans, and any action you take that reduces waste, saves water or keeps it clean, protects ocean wildlife or reduces emissions helps our oceans.
