June 8th is World Oceans Day! This day is celebrated around the word to bring awareness and appreciate to our ocean planet! After all, 70% of our planet is ocean. However, our oceans are under attack from climate change, overfishing, invasive species, coastal development and many other threats. We need to make World Oceans Day not 1 day a year but 365 days a year if we are to combat these threats. So what can you do to help? Here are 3 important ways in which you can contribute.
Volunteer with a marine conservation non-profit like Reef Conservation International 😉
Eat lower on the food chain – don’t eat seafood or meat. The fish will thank you 🙂
Skip the single-use plastics. Most ocean pollution is from single-use plastics.
