"Bounded by three oceans, Canada has a special connection with them, and this is why the Week will focus on research in oceanography, the health of the oceans, the issues that affect populations on the edge of oceans and marine wildlife as well as solutions within everyone's reach. Whether they're attending a conference, participating in a shoreline cleanup, taking a water excursion or reading up on a book, we hope all Canadians will take the opportunity to learn more about the marine world." Jesse Hildebrand, Founder of Science Literacy Week
