People around the world depend on a healthy, clean ocean in order to survive and thrive. World Oceans Day is the official UN-designated international day of ocean celebration. On June 8th each year, we celebrate the ocean, its importance in our lives, and how we can protect it.
WorldOceansDay.org aims to help you make a difference in your life, community, and world by taking action to protect our ocean—for present and future generations. Despite the huge challenges facing the world’s ocean, by working together we can achieve a healthy ocean that provides for the billions of humans, plants and animals which depend on it every day.
The two-year theme for 2013 and 2014 is together we have the power to protect the ocean!
For the next two years we ask you to celebrate the ocean and strive to protect it. Connect with your family, friends, community, and the entire planet on World Oceans Day to take action and create the future you want.
