TechnoparkToday.com(June, 2018); The vast and mighty ocean is one of the most defining physical features on Earth. Covering about 71% of the planet’s surface, this mega ecosystem determines the future of mankind. The ocean nurtures us, and plays a pivotal role in sustaining life as we know it today.
The oceans provide us with food, nutrients, energy, transportation, tourism and many life-saving medicines in addition to being a major source of oxygen production. However, human interventions are ruining this fragile marine ecosystem. It is, therefore important that we create an awareness about the importance of the oceans.
The United Nations declared 1998 as the International Year of the Ocean to promote public awareness and understanding of the oceans, a dominant aspect of the environment. On 8th June each year, we celebrate the World Ocean Day (WOD), a day that helps raise the profile of the ocean and inspire more involvement in helping to conserve this amazing resource we all depend on. The theme of WOD this year is “Preventing plastic pollution and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean”.
