Saturday June 8 is World Oceans Day and a time to celebrate the ocean and strive to protect it.

World Oceans Day is officially recognised by the United Nations and is celebrated on June 8 each year.
Check out the website www.worldoceansday.org for more information and think how you can contribute to looking after the patch of ocean near you.
