Here are some of the latest happenings in the world of ocean acidification in Canada and beyond!

Canada's OA Projects Updates:

We want to hear the great ocean acidification work you’re doing or are involved in, so that we can better connect our membership and to communicate to those outside of this group. It’s important that we share, so that the community interests and needs can be better represented – so we’re excited to hear from you! It should take around 10 minutes to fill the form.

World Ocean Day:

June 8th is world oceans day, make sure you done miss out on the festivities and events including a new educational resource from the OA CoP

The following information is cross posted from the World Ocean Day Website:

On World Ocean Day, people everywhere can unite to celebrate and take action for our shared blue planet, with one ocean and one climate, which connect us all. Get together with your family, community, and /or your company, and join with millions of others around our blue planet to create a better future.

By working together, we can -- and will -- protect and restore our shared ocean and climate. Join this growing global celebration in June and continue to grow the engagement year-round!

Ocean Week Canada is here! If you are thinking of planning an event or are curious to see more information read the following.

The following information is cross posted from the Ocean Week Canada Website.

From June 3 to 12, 2022, we’ll be celebrating Ocean Week Canada! It’s an annual national celebration of ocean events, learning, and engagement held during the week of World Ocean Day (June 8). Through these events and learning activities, we’re recognizing the important role the ocean plays in our everyday lives and how local waterways connect us all with the ocean. Help us raise public awareness and celebrate this connection to coastal areas, the ocean, and watersheds in Canada. Together, we can inspire action to ensure a healthy ocean for future generations.

Early Registration Deadline; June 13th.

The following is cross-posted from the symposium website:

The 5th Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World is being organized by the Pedro Ruiz Gallo National University in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This Symposium follows the symposia in Paris in 2004, Monaco in 2008, Monterey in 2012, and Hobart in 2016, which were all key events for the international community of researchers studying ocean acidification and related stressors. The 5th symposia will maintain the traditional focus of the four previous symposia and look at ocean acidification and associated impacts on marine organisms, ecosystems, and biogeochemical cycles. Ocean acidification will be considered in combination with other global changes such as warming and deoxygenation. The Symposium is inter-disciplinary and contributions are expected to detail advances in observations, modelling, field and laboratory studies. Dedicated sessions will emphasize processes and impacts as well as consequences for humans and their potential responses through policy and management., For more information and to register visit their website by clicking here!
