June 8 is celebrated as World Ocean’s Day, an occasion to reflect on the global perils that threaten the health of the blue areas of our planet. As image makers, we can offer a unique perspective by documenting the beauty, fragility and perils of our oceans. On 9 June there is a global March for the Oceans, an opportunity to unite and tell lawmakers that marine conservation matters. The March also calls for people to meet and carry out clean ups and other activities.
Wetpixel, along with Sea Save, is calling on image makers to post at least one image with the following hashtags: #M4O #MotionFortheOcean #SeaSaveTweet #PlasticPollutionCoalition

Let’s take a moment to join the thousands around the world who will be in motion….
