Summer time conjures up images of sandy beaches, water sports, and surfing. The world's oceans cover up 2/3 of the Earth so it is so important that we take care of our oceans so that we can continue to enjoy everything the ocean provides.
Our planet's biggest celebration of the ocean is held on this date every year, and oceans are a big part of what Contiki does. This year's theme is "Youth: the Next Wave for Change," and being a worldwide leader in youth travel, it is important for us to spread the message to our passengers to preserve the ocean for future generations to enjoy. Reach out to your peers and make a difference in the world!
As part of our Contiki Cares conservation initiatives, oceans play a big role in our operations. We're huge supporters of Oceana and the MAR Leadership Program. Right now, a group of Contiki staffers and two lucky winners from Contiki's Revolve campaign are currently in Mexico preparing to dive the Mesoamerican Reef. They are joining Contiki Sustainability Partner Celine Cousteau and the MAR Leadership Program to film a documentary about the importance of oceans - and we're excited to share with you the details of the dive, so stay tuned!
