World Oceans Day, held every June 8th, is the United Nations-recognized day of ocean celebration and action. The ocean is the heart of our planet, no matter where you live the ocean connects people across the Earth. People from all over the blue planet organize celebrations and support actions to protect our ocean.
This year’s theme is Healthy Oceans and Healthy Planet. The ocean regulates the climate, feeds millions of people every year all while producing oxygen and is home to an incredible array of wildlife and some provide us with medicines and so much more! Ensuring the health of our ocean in our community and future generations as it’s imperative to take responsibilities to care for the ocean as it cares for us!
Many South Florida locals are holding many organized celebrations, whether its a beach clean up, snorkeling adventure or individual ocean gazing.
Give thanks & Happy World Oceans Day!!!
