Mystic Aquarium Makes Conservation Action Pledges at 2016 Our Ocean Conference

Mystic Aquarium Makes Conservation Action Pledges at 2016 Our Ocean Conference

Started in 2014 by Secretary of State John Kerry, the Our Ocean conference is a convener of the world’s most influential organizations dedicated to protecting the ocean environment. The conference has been an instrument for historic collaboration and far-reaching environmental change.

Receiving an invitation from President Obama, Mystic Aquarium’s President and CEO, Dr. Stephen M. Coan, joined global leaders to participate in the conference. He was on hand for the historic announcement of President Obama’s designation of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, an initiative to which Mystic Aquarium played a key role.

Thank you to President Obama for being a true ocean champion.

President Obama made history by creating the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, the first marine national monument in the U.S. Atlantic. It is 4,913 square miles, nearly the size of Connecticut.
