Today is UN World Oceans Day

UN World Oceans Day on Wetpixel

We should celebrate the power, majesty, and beauty of the oceans every day, but perhaps having a single day is a way to focus the world’s attention on both the splendor of the worlds watery places, as well as the immense challenges we face in trying to ensure that we conserve them for future generations.

The UN has a program of virtual events, please register for updates and check out the speakers and panel discussions. The #unworldoceansday photo contest will be announced at 12:20 EDT (UTC-4).
