Throughout the month of June, visitors at Southern California’s luxury coastal retreat can learn, support, and connect with nature in a variety of ways. Terranea Resort, spanning 102 acres and perched atop oceanfront coastal bluffs on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, invites guests and the community to immerse themselves in its rich natural habitat, with a variety of special offerings designed to educate, entertain, and explore the surrounding marine protected environment, in honor of World Oceans Day.
World Oceans Day is a key annual event that brings the community together in support of sustainable ocean management while also raising awareness of the impact of individual activities on the ocean. Guests can participate in eco-driven projects throughout June in collaboration with the Marine Mammal Care Center and International Bird Rescue, which raise awareness about the significance of safeguarding the ocean for future generations to enjoy.
Join Dave Bader, a marine biologist and the Chief Operations and Education Officer of the Marine Mammal Care Center, as he takes guests on a journey along the California coast while sharing his extensive knowledge of endangered cetaceans and the conservation of our local marine life. Each tour will donate a portion of the revenues to the Marine Mammal Care Center. Suitable for children aged 8 and up. Reservations are necessary in advance. All necessary equipment is given.
