Celebrate World Oceans Day: Wednesday, June 8, 2011

[ 0 ] May 31, 2011 |

We love the ocean. We want to do our part to honor and protect it. Here are some suggestions on how you can help from the The Ocean Project.


In honor of World Oceans Day (WOD)–a global celebration of the ocean held every June 8th, wear blue clothing to raise awareness for ocean conservation.

Speak up! Let those around you know why you’re wearing blue and share two facts about why it’s important to protect our world oceans; or ways they can take personal action and help.

To make the “tell two” part a little easier, here are two messages you can share:Wear Blue Tell Two

  • Our ocean has a great wealth of diverse kinds of life but it’s in trouble. Climate change has already been linked to the killing of coral reefs. Coupled with destructive fishing practices, there is a dramatic decline in many types of fish and sea life we depend on.
  • There are important, easy actions each of us can take to help. Calculating our carbon footprints and looking for ways to reduce our role in climate change is a great step. Likewise, we can choose seafood that is abundant in supply and fished or farmed without harm to the ocean and coasts.
