World Ocean Day

Every year on the 8th of June, we celebrate World Ocean Day.

But why is it so important? The oceans are the lifeblood of this planet. They cover over 70% of the Earth's surface, regulate the climate, provide us with food and resources, and are home to an extraordinary amount of biodiversity.

World Ocean Day serves as a global reminder that the oceans face more threats now than at any other time in history. Plastic pollution, overfishing, deep sea and seabed mining, and climate change are all taking a toll. This day is a chance to raise awareness about these dangers and inspire action.

At the Long Bay Great Park Society we work to protect our local marine reserve and preserve it for future generations.
