World Oceans Day serves as a celebration of our oceans, which generate most of the oxygen that we breathe, feeds us, and regulates the planet's climate. The day also serves to promote the oceans' contribution, life, and the need to protect it from, harmful pollution overexploitation, destructive fishing, and climate change. Unfortunately, because of human pollution and exploitation, the world's oceans are becoming increasingly delicate.
In 1992, the Government of Canada proposed World Oceans Day at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. By 2002, the Ocean Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to conservation of the planet's oceans, began to promote and coordinate the event on a global scale. Finally, in December of 2008, the United Nations General Assembly officially proclaimed June 8th as World Oceans Day.
