Every year, on the June 8th, organizations and individuals from around the world come together to celebrate our world ocean, reflect on the ocean’s importance in our lives, and take time to do something good for our blue planet. Close to you, the UNDP/GEF Yellow Sea Project is working with the governments of China and R. Korea to protect the marine life, coasts and sea of the Yellow Sea for now and future generations.

We would like you help us to achieve our goal by participating in our school drawing competition and spreading our important message. By participating, your school will contribute to the wildlife and marine protection of the Yellow Sea.
