World Oceans Day was recognized officially by the UN in 2008.  Every other breath you take is provided by the Ocean.  Less than 1% of the Ocean is protected.  The last year has seen some major man made environmental disasters.  Let’s hope that World Oceans Day June 8th 2012 finds our seas fairing a little better.  The Ocean’s of our world are so beautiful and amazing….teeming with life.  It’s up to us.
