Oceans cover over 70% of the Earth’s surface.
The oceans contain 97% of our planet's available water.
Besides being an amazing natural resource, Ocean waters are healing and beautiful places to have this watery worldwide connection.
The ocean puts you in your place.... yes you really are a tiny dot on the planet.
But like the way land mass has been exploited, the way we have managed our interrelationship with Oceans has been careless. We are there to use, profit from, and abuse it. Pollution & shoddy fishing practices have pushed this magical ecosystem to it's limits.
Be it oil spills, sewage dumps, or commercial applications like fishing, we've not been nice or wise about how we care for 70% of the planet.
It's never too late to change.
It took the United Nations 16 years to come onboard in officially recognizing World Ocean's Day.
Maybe there is hope for us yet....
