World Oceans Day - Port of Iona

June 6-7, 2015

World Oceans Day - Port of Iona

The purpose of this informative and celebratory event is simply to heighten public awareness of the role 'Aros na Mara, and the Bras d'Or Lake can play in the understanding and maintaining the health of the world's oceans. The event will also confirm general acknowledgement and appreciation about the fundamental value and economic potential that the Bras d'Or Lake possesses for all Nova Scotians. As World Oceans' Day is being celebrated on June 8th, CCBCVI considers this week-end an apt occasion and manner for Cape Breton Island's own participation in this world-wide event.
