The Importance of Oceans
World Oceans Day has been recognised since 2002 and is celebrated on June 8th. I’m Zulah Talmadge with The Shady Pines Gazette and this is a topic our readers really like.
It’s the perfect time to learn about the oceans and their importance in our lives, and to think about what we can do to protect them and keep them clean and healthy.
Of course it’s also a great excuse to dive into a sea creature topic – particularly if you think about all the endangered species or other creatures under threat.
“No water, no life. No blue, no green.” Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer
“We owe it to our children to be better stewards of the environment. The alternative? – a world without whales. It’s too terrible to imagine.” Pierce Brosnan, actor
“We know that when we protect our oceans we’re protecting our future.”
President Bill Clinton
