Foto Fun Friday - Wolrd Oceans Day





World Oceans Day, which had been unofficially celebrated every June 8th since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was officially recognized by the United Nations in 2008. Since then it has been coordinated internationally by The Ocean Project and the World Ocean Network with greater success and global participation each year. World Oceans Day is an opportunity every year to honor the world's ocean, celebrate the products the ocean provides such as seafood as well as marine life itself for aquariums, pets, and also a time to appreciate its own intrinsic value. The ocean also provides sea-lanes for international trade. Global pollution and over-consumption of fish have resulted in drastically dwindling population of the majority of species.

I'm bringing Foto Fun Fridays back. Play along and post pics of the things you love, etc. each week on Friday, and feel free to share your posts with us! Have fun!
