CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Wednesday is World Oceans Day, when people everywhere can celebrate and take action for our planet.

The Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M Corpus Christi will showcase a series of films to celebrate.

It’s called "From Seas to Screen."

There will be a total of 12 films shown -- two of them shot locally.

Organizers said the purpose of this event is to foster a spirit of coastal and marine stewardship.

"We also have a film that details Bringing Baffin Back Initiative that is really working to restore the health of Baffin Bay that is really is a jewel here on the Texas coast,” said Megan Radke with the Harte Research Institute.
