The theme for World Oceans Day 2017 is "Our Oceans, Our Future", and the conservation action focus is on encouraging solutions to plastic pollution and preventing marine litter for a healthier ocean and a better future. For World Oceans Day 2017, hundreds of events are planned around the world, including the first United Nations Ocean Conference being held in New York City during the week of World Oceans Day.

The oceans cover about two-thirds of the surface of the Earth and are the very foundations of life. They generate most of the oxygen we breathe, absorb a large share of carbon dioxide emissions, provide food and nutrients and regulate climate. They are important economically for countries that rely on tourism, fishing and other marine resources for income and serve as the backbone of international trade.

Unfortunately, human pressures, including overexploitation, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, destructive fishing, as well as unsustainable aquaculture practices, marine pollution, habitat destruction, alien species, climate change and ocean acidification are taking a significant toll on the world’s oceans and seas.

Peace and security are also critical to the full enjoyment of the benefits that can be derived from the oceans and for their sustainable development. As has been remarked by the Secretary-General: “There will be no development without security and no security without development.”

World Oceans Day is an opportunity for all of us to take measure of the global sustainable development challenges we face and to unite for the ocean we need for the future we want.

Together we  can keep plastic trash out of our oceans and away from ocean animals!
