Helping Our Oceans...........

World Oceans Day
June 8th - Only 27 Days Away

“World Ocean Day was established by the United Nations to help create awareness about our seas, their importance to people, and the growing threats they face,” said Lynne Hale, director of The Nature Conservancy’s global marine program.

"Recent studies about the threatened state of our oceans serve as an important reminder there are small and tangible steps that each of us can take to help reduce our impacts.”

An estimated 80 percent of all life on Earth depends on healthy oceans and coasts, and more than one-third of the world’s population lives in coastal areas or on small islands.

Oceans provide people around the world with sustenance, economic opportunities, recreation and spiritual renewal.
