World Ocean Day

World Ocean Day is observed annually on June 8.

The first World Oceans Day was established on June 8, 1992, during the Rio de Janeiro Global Forum.

"Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean" is the theme of World Oceans Day in 2022.

For millions of people, oceans offer jobs and food security. Ocean-based sectors are predicted to employ 40 million people by 2030.

According to the UN, 50% of coral reefs have been destroyed and 90% of large fish populations have decreased as a result of human activities.

The ocean is referred to as the "lifeline of planet Earth" and is said to produce at least 50% of the world's oxygen, according to the UN.

More than 30% of carbon dioxide is also absorbed by the oceans, reducing the impact of global warming.

We must take worldwide action if we want to protect our seas and the resources it provide.
