Oceans comprise 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and contain 97 percent of all the water on the planet. Oceans have a huge impact on temperature and weather because of their massive size. They are essential for the survival of both humans and other species. Oceans host a diverse range of flora and wildlife, as well as a high level of biodiversity.
World Oceans Day is an annual international event held on June 8th to promote the conservation of water bodies via collective efforts and to protect them from the dangers of human activity. World Oceans Day 2022 celebrates the importance of oceans in sustaining life on Earth and encouraging conservation efforts. The concept was first suggested in 1992 during the Earth Summit – UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by Canada’s International Centre for Ocean Development (ICOD) and the Ocean Institute of Canada (OIC).
Collective Action for the Ocean’ is the theme for World Oceans Day 2022. It strives to promote collective action for the preservation of the water body, as the oceans are a vital link that binds us all together. It must be ensured that the ocean is not destroyed but rather revitalized on World Oceans Day.
World Oceans Day serves as a reminder to every one of the importance of the oceans in our daily lives. They are the planet’s lungs, a key source of food and medicine, and an essential component of the biosphere.
On June 8, 2022, the United Nations will organize the first hybrid celebration of the annual event, which will be televised live from the UN Headquarters in New York.
This year’s annual event, hosted by the UN Office of Legal Affairs’ Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea, will shed light on how we can work together to ensure the ocean’s health and well-being, thanks to a generous contribution from the non-profit organization Oceanic Global and made possible by La Mer.
The primary goal of this Day is to educate the public on the effects of human actions on the ocean, to build a global citizen movement for the ocean, and to mobilize and unite the global population around a project for the long-term management of the world’s oceans.
Let’s see some reason why “without oceans on earth we have to pack up and get going out into space”
Natural Temperature regulator
the ocean acts as and natural temperature regulator by maintaining the temperature all around the earth without oceans some parts of the earth would be too hot to live and other parts would be frozen
This happens by the warm and cold current ocean access the transport service to these warm and cold current by moving the warm current towards the pole and the cold current towards the equator
The ocean accounts for 50 percent of oxygen production and also almost 25 percent of carbon day oxide conversion that happens in the small phytoplanktons these cell creatures do the tedious job of picking after all the carbon dioxide waste we leave behind. Without this happening earth would have lost the protective ozone shield around it and earth would have become a large-sized frying pan.
Ocean alone acts as about 16 percent of Animal protein and to crown it 95 percent of the ocean is not yet mapped, And thus it is safe to say the ocean can offer us food for centuries (if used sustainably of course).

There are of course other reasons why we shouldn’t harm the ocean … You know why ???
Cause earth isn’t ours to destroy, we should never forget we are always a guest in this blue ball
What do you think are the other importance of the ocean!!
