Default “How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly ocean.”

“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly ocean.” -- Arthur C. Clarke

June 8 is World Oceans Day! This year's theme is "Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet", which focuses on the importance of maintaining marine ecosystems and the education of manmade threats to our oceans (pollution, overfishing, and rising sea temperatures caused by global warming).

The United Nations has called them the "heart of the planet", and that's very accurate. Oceans make up nearly two-thirds of the earth's surface and play a vital role in sustaining life. So when you visit the beach this summer, take some time to reflect upon, respect, and cherish the world's oceans!
