Everyone knows about Earth Day, the international movement celebrated annually on April 22 that aims to create awareness of our environment and advocate for its protection. While we've come a long way in recognizing the limits of our planet's green assets, our essential blue resources tend to get overlooked.

This year, we're urging you to consider the other 71% of our planet: water. Take a pledge and join the National Aquarium in showing our blue planet some love during the 48 days between Earth Day on April 22 and World Oceans Day on June 8.


"I pledge to better understand our blue planet and the life it sustains.

I pledge to do my part to ensure it has a healthy future.

I pledge to share the many wonders of our blue planet and my commitment to it with friends, family and neighbors, so they too can take part in its protection!"
