Jack is celebrating World Oceans Day in New York! World Oceans Day is a global event that inspires people to help create healthier oceans for a healthy planet. Jack is participating in the celebrations at the United Nations, and will be joining friends from the Polynesian Voyaging Society to honor their Malama Honua sail across the world’s oceans.

This morning, Jack had the honor of attending a ceremony with the U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Two years ago in Samoa, Ban Ki-moon came aboard the Hokule’a and offered the gift of a message in a bottle, a handwritten note pledging to take action and protect the world’s oceans. Along her sail, the Hokulea Crew has collected 40 pledges from around the world and will return the bottle to the Secretary-General in honor of World Oceans Day.
