Today is World Ocean Day
Today is World Ocean Day, a global celebration raising awareness of the importance of the global Ocean.
This annual event traces its roots back to an Earth Summit held in 1992, and was first given official recognition by the United Nations in 2008. It spreads a message of conservation, calling on participants to help do their part in protecting and restoring the blue planet.
The global Ocean, incorporating the five oceans of the world, is home to 80% of all life on the planet and vital to our continued existence, even down to the air that we breathe.
In excess of 400 events are taking place today across the world in celebration of the more than 70% of the Earth that is covered in water. World Ocean Day is aligned with the 30×30 initiative, which calls on world leaders to protect at least 30% of the world’s land and oceans by 2030.
