World Oceans Day
The concept for a “World Ocean Day” was first proposed in 1992 by the Government of Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. As a result of a United Nations General Assembly resolution passed in December 2008, World Oceans Day is now officially recognized by the UN as June 8th each year.
This year, the action focus for World Oceans Day is preventing plastic pollution and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean.
Celebrate the ocean and strive to protect it!
