The June 8 World Oceans Day was started 17 years ago. World Oceans Day serves as a celebration of our oceans, which generate most of the oxygen that we breathe, feed us and regulate the planet's climate. The day also serves to promote the oceans' contribution life and the need to protect it from harmful pollution, overexploitation, destructive fishing and climate change. Unfortunately, as a result of human pollution and exploitation, the world's oceans are becoming increasingly delicate...

In 1992, the Government of Canada proposed World Oceans Day at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. By 2002, the Ocean Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to conservation of the planet's oceans, began to promote and coordinate the event on a global scale. Finally, in December of 2008, the United Nations General Assembly officially proclaimed June 8th as World Oceans Day..


The Earth is covered by water on 71% of its surface, 96.5% of that water is in the oceans.

The theme for World Oceans Day in 2019 was Gender and the Ocean.

It is estimated that 50-80% of all life forms on Earth is found under the oceans' surfaces. Oceans consist of 99% of all living space on the planet.

If all of the Earth's ice melted, the oceans would rise 66m and flood all low-lying ground.

The lowest point on the planet is located in Mariana's Trench in the western Pacific. The point, known as Challenger Deep, is 11,034m deep. (Mt. Everest is only 8,848m tall).

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to said or to watch - we are going back to whence we came. - John F. Kennedy
