World Ocean Day -Unofficial

Tell the UN to officially declare June 8 as "World Ocean Day!"
World Ocean Day was created in 1992 at the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit, put on by the United Nations. Ever since, thousands have celebrated the oceans' importance and their personal connections with them. But unfortunately, for the past 16 years this honorary day has remained an unofficial celebration because the UN has failed to formally designate June 8 as World Ocean Day every year.Oceans provide us with food, they regulate climate and generate oxygen, so it doesn't matter if you reside on the coast or farther inland; the ocean in some way impacts your everyday life. Sign our petition today!Tell the United Nations to officially declare June 8 as "World Ocean Day!"
