Friday is World Oceans Day! It’s a day worth celebrating. Here’s why:
Oceans make up an astounding two-thirds of our planet. The blue water generates the oxygen we breathe, feeds us, regulates our climate, and so much more (World Oceans Day).
As such, everyone plays a role in the enjoyment, exploration, and protection of this environment. While zoos and aquariums are leading the charge to positively impact ocean health, destination coastal resorts are also beginning to use tourism as activism by empowering visitors to learn about the challenges faced by the beautiful environments that surround them. Even in our everyday lives, we can do more to be conscious of our habits and daily actions and really make a difference.
