World Oceans Day is an annual global event that highlights the significance of our oceans and raises awareness about their conservation. The day focuses on promoting sustainable practices, safeguarding marine habitats, and addressing the effects of climate change on marine ecosystems. Communities around the globe take this opportunity to celebrate the essential role oceans play in our lives, from providing oxygen and regulating the climate to supporting a vast array of marine species and serving as a source of food, employment, and recreation for billions of people.
The idea of celebrating World Oceans Day dates back to 1992, when it was first proposed during the Earth Summit in Brazil. New Zealand shares a special bond with the ocean, with its coastline stretching over 15,000 kilometres, offering a diverse range of marine habitats and a rich marine biodiversity. The island nation has a crucial role in maintaining the health of the oceans, safeguarding its vast marine resources, and ensuring the protection of its waters for future generations.
During World Oceans Day in New Zealand, various activities and events take place across the country, including beach cleanups, educational workshops, and presentations by experts to encourage awareness and conservation of marine environments. These events often involve local communities, schools, and environmental organizations, bringing people together to appreciate and protect the oceanic wonders surrounding them. World Oceans Day is observed on the 8th of June, providing an opportunity for New Zealanders to join the global movement and take responsibility for preserving the oceans, which are an invaluable part of the country's natural heritage.
