Greenopolis and Melissa are in Monterey Bay California for the World's Oceans Weekend Event at the Aquarium. Greenopolis has a Twitter contest going on and Ashok, a Greenopolis team member, tells people what's going on.
The oceans affect all of us— plant, human, or animal, no matter where we are in the world. And even though Greenopolis is happy to be here standing in front of the Pacific Ocean, Greenopolis would want to hear from you on why should we care about our oceans. Tweet @greenopolis why you should care about your oceans. On Wednesday, World's Oceans Day, Greenopolis is going to pick someone to win a thousand Greenopolis points and everyone who participates is going to get 10 points.
So tweet @Greenopolis why you should care about the oceans. Stay tuned on Wednesday for the announcement of the winner.
10 points just for tweeting and a thousand for the random winner. Okay everybody, get involved.
Why do you think it's so important to protect our oceans?
"If we don't protect our oceans then we don't have anything to survive on. You know, that's our whole living."
"Well probably because oceans are just so important and they make up a good percent of the earth's total surface."
"We don't want animals to be extinct. We don't want them to die. You know, they're important. Turtles, octopuses- I love seeing them, kids love seeing them."
What can be done to protect the world's oceans? Stop littering, stop polluting.
Stop littering. Follow the Greenopolis Global Guide on keeping everyday harmful items out of the ocean. Keep up the good work!
