Today, June 8 is World’s Oceans Day, a UN recognised event. This year, the celebrations will focus on the theme “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet”.
Besides serving as a mean of transportation connecting people across the globe, the world’s seas and oceans regulate the climate, shelters many species and provides oxygen and sustenance for the millions of people.
Pollution is a major threat for the health of aquatic animals which are part of our food chain. By preventing contamination of the ocean and seas we are caring for our health.
By celebrating this day we are joining a worldwide movement of citizens for the oceans.
We are aiming at achieving a sustainable management of the many resources of our oceans. The health and safety of future generations will depend on how well we care of our oceans and seas.
