The One Ocean Exploration Zone is an educational destination offering hands-on opportunities to discover ocean science and the environment. The ocean system connects us all by providing multiple services to our living environment - food, weather patterns, the oxygen we breathe, and vast recreational activities. The One Ocean Exploration Zone is a multi-stakeholder effort to enhance ocean literacy, broaden awareness of stressors facing the marine environment and educate visitors on conservation and sustainability efforts underway from the local to global scale.
