Today marks 'World Oceans Day'. Every year on June 8, we celebrate this day in order to honour the major role that oceans of the world play in our lives and our survival. The day serves as a reminder to inspire actions, and make use of marine resources responsibly.
The theme for World Oceans Day in 2021 is 'The Ocean: Life & Livelihoods'. The aim of this year's campaign is to "shed light on the wonder of the ocean and how it is our life source, supporting humanity and every other organism on Earth."
Today, United Nations shared a video about World Oceans Day on Twitter about the ways in which we can safeguard our oceans.
The official Twitter handle of the UN tweeted, "Tuesday is #WorldOceansDay. From eating local, sustainably-sourced fish to stopping plastic pollution, we all have a role to play to #SaveOurOcean."
On this day, many people across the globe took to social media to commemorate this day virtually. Many also shared pictures of the oceans and reminded others of the beauty that they behold.
