In observance of World Ocean’s Day, some locals on Sanibel have decided to organize a local event to show their support. Thursday, June 8th is officially World Ocean’s Day, and it just so happens that is when the event will take place.  From 7:00 AM until 9:00 AM, the shell museum employees have organized a beach clean up located just off island.
