Today (Tuesday, June 8) is World Ocean Day!
World Ocean Day 2021 has become one of the most impactful yet with activities, celebrations and other events – both online and in person – planned throughout the ocean month of June.
For 2021, World Ocean Day is raising awareness and support for the global movement to protect at least 30% of the world’s lands, waters, and ocean by 2030. Safeguarding at least 30% through a network of highly protected areas can help ensure a healthy ocean and climate.
For a complete list of World Ocean Day resources and updates from 2021, see here.
WORLD OCEAN DAY IS HERE! Instead of taking up the spotlight, we will be sharing the stage with people, organizations and places that are hosting their own events, big and small. Follow along all day. And hey, happy #WorldOceanDay. pic.twitter.com/HT99ch3HbG— World Ocean Day (@WorldOceansDay) June 8, 2021
