World Oceans Day was officially recognized by the United Nations in 2008 and is now celebrated on 8 June each year.

The theme for World Oceans Day 2013-2014 is “Together we have the power to protect the ocean!”, which focuses on “getting involved with ocean conservation in our personal lives, within our communities and globally”.

According to United Nations, this day is celebrated to remind people about the shared ocean of the world and their personal connection to the sea. The day is also celebrated to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in people’s lives and the important ways in which they can help protect it.
