World Oceans Day 2017: Our Oceans, Our Future
June 8, 2017
World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. This site serves as the central coordinating platform for World Oceans Day, with free resources and ideas for everyone – no matter where you live – to help expand the reach and impact of World Oceans Day on June 8 and year-round.
Overall theme for World Oceans Day 2017:
Our Oceans, Our Future
Conservation action focus:
Encouraging solutions to plastic pollution and preventing marine litter for a healthier ocean and a better future
Consider hosting a litter pick up or taking every day action by participating in #pickup5 when you go on a walk. Though we don’t live near the ocean, litter washes into our waterways. Ultimately, they are all connected so litter in DuPage County can end up as litter in the ocean.
