Happy World Oceans Day!
World Oceans Day is a celebration of the ocean, held annually on June 8th, and we have many reasons to celebrate! The ocean is an amazing resource for food and oxygen. It helps regulate the global climate, and even provides drugs to help fight human diseases. But for many, it is simply the joy of playing in the water that gives us reason to celebrate today. Swimming, surfing, scuba diving, boating, fishing.
Today is a chance for each of us to think about what the ocean means to you. Share how you are celebrating World Oceans Day below! For additional ocean related conversation, join us on Facebook and Twitter.
The 2012 theme is “Youth: the Next Wave for Change.” Join us in inspiring the next generation of stewards for the ocean. Share some of the amazing University of Miami ocean education resources with the special young people in your life!
