World Oceans Day

Today is World Oceans Day. We encourage everyone to donate to an organization that promotes protecting and conserving our precious oceans. There is a list at the bottom of this post.

As you all know by know, the Pacific Garbage Patch isn't the only massive collection of plastics and refuse in our waters. There is an Atlantic one too. And apparantly 2 more off the coasts of Russia.

These need to spotlighted so more people are aware of them. They need to be contained and then cleaned up. As far as we know, there are NO ORGANIZATIONS ANYWHERE that are dedicated to doing so.

The Day’s challenges and key objectives

Inform the general public of the dangers facing the ocean and of the impact of human activities

Create a world-wide citizen’s movement

Raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in all our daily lives

Mobilise people around sustainable ocean stewardship projects

Encourage everyone to take action to preserve the ocean and its riches

Celebrate World Oceans Day and participation in the day’s festivities.

And please read the blog out today from Phillippe Cousteau, grandson of the legendary Jacques Cousteau.


We have to stop crying about it and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!





It's not too late to save the oceans. It just can't be.
