World Ocean Day 2014

2014 Theme: Together, we have the power to protect the oceans

“We have to ensure that oceans continue to meet our needs without compromising those of future generations. They regulate the planet’s climate and are a significant source of nutrition. Their surface provides essential passage for global trade, while their depths hold current and future solutions to humanity’s energy needs.”
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
