In the words of the wise crab Sebastian from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, “The human world is a mess. Life under the sea is better than anything they got up there.”
Today is World Oceans Day, an international celebration to honor the bodies of water that connect us and make us the “Blue Planet.”
The purpose of this annual initiative is to rally the world to restore our shared oceans through an initiative called the Conservation Action Focus, which aims to protect 30% of the Earth’s land and sea by 2030.
