The United Nations celebrates World Oceans Day on June 8th every year. This year's theme is 'The Ocean: Life and Livelihoods'. 

World Oceans Day was officially recognised by the United Nations in 2008. The international day supports the implementation of worldwide Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and fosters public interest in the protection of the ocean and the sustainable management of its resources.

See the UN World Oceans Day website for more information.
