Why Should I Celebrate World Ocean Day?

It’s up to each one of us to help ensure that our ocean is protected and conserved for future generations. World Ocean Day allows us to…

Change perspective – encourage individuals to think about what the ocean means to them and what it has to offer all of us with hopes of conserving it for present and the future generations.

Learn – discover the wealth of diverse and beautiful ocean creatures and habitats, how our daily actions affect them, and how we are all interconnected.

Change our ways – we are all connected to the ocean! By taking care of your backyard, you are acting as a caretaker of our ocean. Making small modifications to your everyday habits will greatly benefit our blue planet.

Celebrate – whether you live inland or on the coast we are all connected to the ocean; take the time to think about how the ocean affects you, and how you affect the ocean, and then organize or participate in activities that celebrate our world ocean.

Here are some Ocean Facts:

– Generates most of the oxygen we breathe;
– Helps feed us;
– Regulates our climate;
– Cleans the water we drink;
– Offers us a pharmacopoeia of potential medicines; and
– Provides limitless inspiration!
