This week, hundreds of ocean lovers from all over the world are getting active in support of marine conservation by participating in the fifth annual REEF Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K. The 5K kicked off on World Ocean Day on June 8, and continues through June 15. Participants can choose their favorite exercise - walking, running, hiking, biking, swimming, or even paddling. If you haven't registered, it's not too late to join in! You can complete your 5K at your own pace this week, and participate from anywhere in the world. You can sign up through June 15 by visiting

If you're taking part in the race this week, we'd love to see your photos of you in your 5K swag! Be sure to post your pictures on social media and tag us on Facebook or Instagram, or you can email them to us at
