Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium's World Oceans Day Celebration

The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium and WQED are bringing Jim Henson's Splash and Bubbles to the Zoo to celebrate World Oceans Day!  Join Splash and Bubbles for the Pittsburgh premiere of their newest episode, "The End of the Ocean/Antarctic Ranger".  Visit the Reeftown Ranger stations to learn how to protect our oceans.  Kids can get their Ocean Adventure Passport stamped at each station to earn their Reeftown Ranger badge.  Splash and Bubbles will be on site both days for photos.

This year, we will focus on encouraging solutions to plastic pollution and preventing marine litter for a healthier ocean and a better future.  Additional activities include keeper conversations, special animal enrichment, crafts for children, as well as a special River Litter Art Exhibit featuring local artists.
