Today is World Oceans Day, an opportunity to raise awareness of the benefits we get from the ocean and acknowledge our responsibility to use its resources sustainably. It is also a chance for us to celebrate the beauty of the ocean, what it provides for us physically, and the way it calms us mentally. We highlight some resources we hope you find helpful today on World Ocean Day.
