Oceans Day is a yearly event to celebrate and honour the bodies of water that join us all. The oceans generate most of the oxygen we breathe, they regulate our climate, and they feed us.

But the best part is, we still know very little about them; less than 10% has been explored, and scientists believe over 9 million species are yet to be discovered in the deep blue depths!

So whether you go for a dip, surf, scuba-dive or join in with one of the many events organised in over 45 countries worldwide, let’s celebrate and honour our oceans, and inspire younger generations to get involved with their conservation.

Join the conversation!
