Each June 8th, World Oceans Day is celebrated to amplify the vital importance of our oceans and the actions we can all take to help protect them. Our oceans nourish and support life. They connect us across the planet bringing us beauty, food, air, transportation, medicines, recreation, and jobs.
World Oceans Day reminds everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life. They are the lungs of our Planet and a major source of food and medicine and a critical part of the biosphere.
The purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world's oceans.
