Communities around the globe will come together to celebrate World Oceans Day with the inspiration to collaborate with one another to learn more about our ocean and take action to help conserve it on June 8th.

The ocean covers roughly 70 percent of Earth and it is our responsibility as inhabitants of this planet to understand and protect our natural resources.

The world’s ocean provides us with food, generates oxygen, regulate our climate, and water to drink.

Currently, the ocean is suffering from our mistakes including overfishing, dying coral reefs, increase in ocean dead zones, mercury pollution, and unnecessary dumping of waste.
