Celebrating the World Oceans Day 2019!
To commemorate 2019 World Oceans Day the Colombo City Centre in partnership with the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society and the Department of Wildlife Conservation of Sri Lanka is holding a two day event starting from June 8th in the Atrium of the Colombo City Centre at 137 Sir James Pieris Mawatha, Colombo 02.
There will be displays and presentations about the marine environment. Most interestingly there will be several Touch Tanks for kids to make personnel connections with unique marine organisms such as starfish, seahorses, pretty little shrimps, sand skates, sea lilies, sea anemones, clownfish of Finding Nemo __fame and many more. Several sea turtles from four species that had been rescued and rehabilitated will be there as well. What is exciting is that once the two day event is over these sea turtles will be released back to the sea to mark the 2019 World Oceans Day.
The World Oceans Day exhibition is from 10 am to 10 pm on June 8th and 9th. Please bring your children for an enjoyable, educational, and immersive experience, learning about our amazing marine environment.
