PM Skerrit said, “Let’s stand united in our resolve to combat pollution, overfishing, and climate change. Together, we can create a bluer and brighter future.” 

World Oceans Day 2023, with the theme “Tides, Are Changing”, celebrates the magnificent oceans, highlighting their vital role in sustaining life on Earth. World Oceans Day on 8 June is highlighting the global movement ’30×30′, which aims to safeguard at least 30% of the world’s land, waters and Ocean by 2030.

World Oceans Day is a reminder to reflect on the undeniable connection between the health of oceans and the well-being of the planet. The oceans provide food, energy, recreation, and transportation. They are also home to some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. Unfortunately, human activities such as overfishing and pollution are putting this lifeblood at risk. Hence, the day is marked as a chance to introspect the conditions of the oceans and think of ways to mitigate all such problems. 

The World Oceans Day is also an initiative of the United Nations to save the natural reserve by reducing waste, recycling, and adopting sustainable practices. The blue Ocean is the life source; it supports humanity and every other organism on Earth.

The Ocean is the lungs of the planet and a major source of food, medicine and a critical part of the biosphere. With over 50% of the planet’s oxygen coming from it and most of Earth’s biodiversity calling it their home, it’s definitely worth protecting.

90% of big fish populations have become depleted, and 50% of coral reefs have been destroyed; human beings are taking more from the Ocean than can be replenished.
