Why you should celebrate World Oceans Day

Posted by Peter MUIR

World Oceans Day, held annually on June 8, serves to remind us about the importance of our oceans, and that we have a reason to celebrate and honor the ocean.

The world’s ocean:

  • Generates most of the oxygen we breathe
  • Helps feed us
  • Regulates our climate
  • Cleans the water we drink
  • Offers a pharmacopoeia of potential medicines
  • Provides limitless inspiration
  • If you are in Yr 11 and you are keen to get involved in organising activities to celebrate World Oceans Day at DC, please email Ms Belcher – gabbie.belcher@dc.edu.hk – to sign up!
