10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Saint Louis Zoo will be featuring four different stations to help ocean conservation. Participants can pledge to say "No Thanks To Straws" and #byetobags, and be inspired to make good choices for climate change and sustainable seafood. There will be a celebration of the marine species at the Zoo — polar bears, stingrays and sharks, seals and sea lions, penguins and puffins, and a coral reef habitat — and bring awareness to their ocean homes and what we can do to help each other and the animals.
