THE OCEANS ARE IMPORTANT TO US.
Obviously, our business evolved because of the ocean. We are thankful to live and be a part of the ocean every day and we understand the vital importance of having an ocean for the future.
Today being World Ocean's Day, it seems a good time to bring awareness to how you can help. Even if its just a few minutes to read this blog, to become aware of ways you can help. It might spark an idea for what you can maybe do tomorrow with some friends, or this weekend with your family. Down the beach.
HOW EACH OF US CAN GIVE BACK
Participate in a World Oceans Day event or activity this year and help protect the ocean for the future! It’s up to each one of us to help ensure that our ocean is healthy for future generations. World Oceans Day allows us to:
- Change perspective – encourage individuals to think about what the ocean means to them and what it has to offer all of us with hopes of conserving it for present and the future generations.
- Learn – discover the wealth of diverse and beautiful ocean creatures and habitats, how our daily actions affect them, and how we are all interconnected.
- Change our ways – we are all linked to, and through, the ocean! By taking care of your backyard and helping in your community, you are acting as a caretaker of our ocean. Making small modifications to your everyday habits will make a difference, and involving your family, friends, and community will benefit our blue planet even more!
- Celebrate – whether you live inland or on the coast, we are all connected to the ocean. Take the time to think about how the ocean affects you, and how you affect the ocean, and then organize or participate in activities that celebrate our ocean.
If you need more info on how you can help out in your area on World Ocean's Day, head to the World Oceans Day website.
And if all you do today is say a silent prayer for the ocean, than that's good enough or us.
