June 8th is World Oceans Day

World Oceans Day was officially declared by the United Nations as June 8th each year beginning in 2009.
The concept was proposed on June 8th 1992 by Canada at the Earth Summit.

The Ocean Project has been promoting WOD since 2003 and has been working to build awareness of the crucial role of the ocean in our lives.

Given the disastrous events in the Gulf of Mexico the past six weeks, no year more than this do we need the message of the Ocean Project.

World Oceans Day is also a no plastic day.

Maybe this year we can expand it to included an increase in offshore drilling regulation.
