World Oceans Day

Today is the first official World Oceans Day, on June 8th, 2009. Today is the day to celebrate our Oceans, and raise awareness to protect and conserve our Oceans, for they cover about 71% of the whole world. 
Saving the ocean is a giant step to saving the world. Scientists estimate that about 80% of earth's life lives in our Oceans, and first life developed in the Ocean as well. There are so many small things that you could do to help the ocean. For example, you could learn or study about the Ocean. Explore it. Swim in the Ocean or surf or dive. Love the Ocean and help the ocean. "Our Oceans, Our Responsibility" is the 2009 inaugural world theme.
