Canadian Healthy Oceans Network (CHONe) researchers and students have been very active in promoting public awareness of biodiversity science for the sustainability of Canada's three oceans, Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic, and the different species (animals, plants, algae, fungi, bacteria and viruses) and ecosystems (kelp beds, intertidal, subtidal, seafloor, water column, open-ocean, hydrothermal vents, deep-sea coral and sponge reefs, etc) within within these oceans. Learn how our researchers and students are sharing their knowledge through various programs and events.

Celebrate and Honour Our Oceans 

People around our blue planet celebrate and honor our oceans during Ocean's Day (June 8), Ocean's Week (1st week of June) and Ocean's Month (all of June). Why should you celebrate and honour the ocean? Because it links us all. Find out how you are connected to the ocean, and how you can help protect our oceans.
