WORLD OCEANS DAY


WORLD OCEANS DAY
WORLD OCEANS DAY

Oceans are the very foundations of our lives and it covers about two-thirds of the surface of the Earth. The ocean generates most of the oxygen we breathe, absorbs a large amount of carbon dioxide emissions, provide food and nutrients and regulate our climate
World Oceans Day intends to raise awareness of the challenges humanity faces to protect the world's oceans.
The reason we mainly celebrate ocean day are
·        To remind everyone of the most important role the oceans have in everyday life.
·        To inform the public about the impact of human actions on the ocean.
·        To assemble and connect the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world's oceans.
·        To celebrate together the beauty of the ocean.

WHEN IS WORLD OCEANS DAY
Friday, 8th June

WORLD OCEANS DAY HISTORY
World Oceans Day was first introduced in 1992 to raise awareness about the fundamental role of the sea which plays as sources of food, oxygen and medicine.
