World Oceans Day
Start: 8th Jun 2022 9:00am
Why do we need World Oceans Day?
Our ocean needs protection.
- Our ocean covers 70% of the planet and supports life as we know it
- Every second breath we take comes from the ocean
- Our ocean feeds billions of people
- Our ocean hosts 80% of the world’s biodiversity.
However, our oceans are in crisis. They are being threatened by pollution such as abandoned fishing nets, overfishing, and the effects of climate change.
We know the problems. We know the solutions.
World Oceans Day is a day to take action and raise awareness.
