World Oceans Day is June 8th

World Oceans Day was proposed in 1992 by the Canadian government and has been designated by the United Nations. The Ocean Project, working closely with the World Ocean Network each year, helps to coordinate events and activities with aquariums, zoos, museums, conservation organizations, universities, schools, businesses. It is recognized every June 8th.

Each year, throughout the world, engaging events are planned to highlight our oceans, coasts and seas and the marine life they contain, and to provide opportunities for people to get directly involved in their protection – beach clean-ups, educational programs, art competitions, film festivals, sustainable seafood events and other activities.

The 7 C’s for ocean conservation:

  • Commit to making a real difference
  • Conserve in your home
  • Consume consciously
  • Communicate your interests and concerns
  • Challenge yourself daily
  • Connect in your community
  • Celebrate our ocean!

One easy thing that all supporters can do is to wear blue in honor of the ocean. It is also suggested that you not only wear blue, but let people know why: tell people two things they likely don’t know about our ocean and how they can help.

Some ideas of celebrating World Oceans Day are the following:

  • organize a beach/ocean cleanup
  • plant trees
  • raise ocean awareness
  • sustainable seafood event
  • sand sculpture contest

 

There are numerous activities throughout the world affiliated with World Oceans Day. For more information, go to the official World Oceans Day website. Visit and join my Clean Oceans twibe.

    It’s good but how much do we actually care for them? I mean mark days and make a resolution and set goals but have you seen how slowly a lot of types of whales are going into extinction? Whale killing still exists and the leakage of oil from ships going into the sea hurts marine life a lot. A lot of fishes die because of it and the ocean is getting polluted. If UN and all it’s members are serious about it, set strict controls. We humans are destroying slowly everything for our comforts only. If the people of the country are aware of the facts then only I think we can achieve changes like we have in Global Warming. People can force Governments otherwise they’ll force us to keep doing to do what they want us to do.
