The Big Idea

The Centennial of the National Park Service in 2016 provides an historic opportunity to launch a decadal effort to bring America’s “best idea” to where it is most urgently needed now — our ocean.

“No water, no life. No blue, no green.”

My Blue Moment
One of the goals of the Blue Centennial and the expeditions is to spread awareness about crucial marine ecosystems. Throughout the first expedition, we had a team of young Aquanauts who have now shared their #MyBlueMoment stories! You can check them out below.
