The DNM and the Ministry of Transport, Integrity, Nature and Senior Affairs (Min. TINO), and the organizations involved with the marine ecosystem, will launch a series of questions every Wednesday on the DNM's Facebook page. Starting on June 15, 2022, the DNM will be posting questions for 9 consecutive weeks on their Facebook page.
The quiz is an initiative of the Ministry of TINO to reach out to marine environmental organizations to help promote World Oceans Day in a joint event.
There is also the opportunity to win prizes every week.
This year's theme of World Ocean Day is “Revitalization: collective action for the ocean.” On this day, they raise awareness and acknowledge those heroes who work day and night to protect and preserve our ocean. These heroes are the collective voice of the ocean that surrounds our island. Starting next week, the DNM will start their quiz to test the knowledge of the community on those who are doing all they can to protect the ocean, our #oceanheroes.
Who are our local #oceanheroes?
These foundations are dedicated to the conservation and protection of our ocean and to individuals who keep our marine resources clean.
Nine foundations will participate in the #Oceanwednesdays quiz.
They will be posting two multiple-choice questions every Wednesday.
The nine participating foundations are:
- Aruba Birdlife Conservation;
- Caribbean Lionfish Alliance;
- Commission Protection of the Flora and Fauna;
- Aruba Marine Mammal Foundation;
- Metabolic Foundation;
- Impact Blue Foundation;
- Fundacion Parke Nacional Aruba (FPNA).
The Ministry TINO has reached out to the foundations to help create a platform for collaboration for future events aimed toward ocean management groups.
How will the quiz be presented to the Aruban community?
The DNM will post the questions submitted by participating foundations on their Facebook page every Wednesday. You can find the answers to the questions on the foundation's Facebook pages.
Each question will have a photo tagging the foundation in the spotlights that week. Participate in the quiz #OceanWednesdays and win prizes!
