World Ocean Day is being celebrated with activities worldwide.  It is an opportunity to reflect on the ocean’s importance in our lives, to learn more about the ocean and to take time to do something good for our blue planet.  It’s up to each of us to help ensure that the ocean is protected and conserved for future generations through positive changes in our daily lives.
