Word Oceans Day

World Oceans Day is now officially recognized by the UN Secretary General as June 8th each year.

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, and it has been unofficially celebrated every year since then.

June 8th honours our world oceans and our personal connections to the sea.
