Celebrating our One World Ocean
World Ocean Day is an international celebration and collaboration for a healthier future for our Ocean. On June 8, 2021 people from across the globe will unite to raise awareness of the critical role the ocean plays for all life on Earth and the dire need to protect it.
Our health and our ocean’s health are connected. Over half of the oxygen we breathe is produced in the ocean, and the ocean is the heart of our planet, circulating heat and water and regulating our climate. Vastly biodiverse, scientists estimate that 91% of ocean species have yet to be classified. The ocean provides food, creates millions of jobs, is a source for medicines, and provides inspiration, respite and recreation. It is up to us to preserve and protect it for future generations.
Please sign on to join us for the scheduled events below and check our Facebook and Instagram feeds throughout the week as we celebrate ocean wavemakers, share creature features, and post ideas on how you can help save the ocean.

By safeguarding at least 30% of our ocean through a network of highly protected areas we can help ensure a healthy home for all!
