Today marks World Ocean Day, and the theme is Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean. Aquariums, Science Centres, NGOs, and Governments all around the world are trying to mark the day virtually and raise awareness on how to protect our oceans and all its fascinating creatures.

There are many reasons to keep up awareness and celebrate World Ocean Day, including the little-known fact that oceans absorb about 30 per cent of carbon dioxide produced by humans and therefore buffer the impacts of global warming.

Thames & Kosmos is keen to show its support. Over the past week the company ran a competition on its Instagram page asking kids to tell them which their favourite inhabitant of the sea is and why. Three lucky entrants will win one of Thames & Kosmos’ Nature Discovery Orca Anatomy Models

Zac, a member of the Thames & Kosmos junior team, is a massive fan of the Nature Discovery range and has deemed the Orca “the best one yet” and “totally epic”.

Thames & Kosmos has also been busy sharing fun facts about sea creatures big and small via their social media channels in order to raise awareness of the need to care for our planet.   

“We have always wanted to make sure that children learn useful facts in a fun and engaging way with our kits. We are extremely proud of our Nature Discovery Orca and Shark Anatomy Models which you can build and rebuild as often as you want, and which support children's understanding of how creatures work internally,” says Jo Drage, sales director at Thames & Kosmos.

She continues: “We hope that we can share some awareness with our customers and end users alike. Who knows, we may have just inspired the next Sir David Attenborough…”
