It is something that should be celebrated each and every day of the year for obvious reasons, but World Ocean Day is celebrated primarily on June 8th each year. World Oceans Day is the official UN-designated international day of ocean celebration.
Each year World Oceans Day has a theme and this year the theme is “Together we have the power to protect the ocean.”
