NJ celebrates National Week of the Ocean

Jenkinson's Aquarium in Point Pleasant is helping educate New Jersey residents about the National Week of the Ocean.

The celebration focuses on human interdependence with the ocean. Workers hope to teach the public how to appreciate, protect and make wise use of the ocean.

Jennifer Sevienso, the aquarium's senior marine coordinator, says, "Our climate depends a lot on the ocean, if the ocean changes we are going to have to prepare to change on land".
