About This Collection

As a result of a United Nations General Assembly resolution passed in December 2008, World Oceans Day is celebrated on June 8th each year. This annual event spurred the creation of a special collections around our oceans and the efforts being made in conservation ranging from pollution to habitat restoration to fishing and fisheries.

The special collection continues to grow along with Plastic in Our Oceans and 1Water, with a focus on the challenge of providing clean drinking water to the world population.

Project Shellter for Hermit Crabs by Bre Pettis
Hermit crabs don’t make their own shells. They scavenge their homes. And now, hermit crabs are facing a housing shortage as the worldwide shell supply is decreasing. As a community, we can reach out to this vulnerable species and offer applying MakerBot's digital design skills and 3D printing capabilities to give hermit crabs another option: 3D printed shells.  See article on this project at Txchnologist magazine.
