World Oceans Day
A healthy world ocean is critical to our survival. Every year, World Oceans Day provides a unique opportunity to honor, help protect, and conserve the world’s oceans. Oceans are very important as they generate most of the oxygen we breathe, they help feed us, regulate our climate, clean the water we drink, offer a pharmacopoeia of medicines and provide limitless inspiration!
It’s up to each one of us to help ensure that our ocean is healthy for future generations. World Oceans Day allows us to change our perspective and encourage individuals to think about what the ocean means to them, learn about the diverse creatures and habitats in the oceans, change our ways in order to benefit the oceans and think about how the ocean affects us, celebrating the ocean.
Despite the huge challenges facing the world’s ocean, by working together we can support a healthy ocean that is able to sustainably provide for the billions of humans, plants, and animals that depend on it every day. On World Oceans Day, people around our blue planet celebrate and honor the ocean, which connects us all.
