  • World Oceans Day

    World Oceans Day is an excellent opportunity to stop and be thankful for the awesome oceans we get to enjoy. It’s also a time to think about what you can do to assist in the preservation and well being of the ocean. What we always tell people is to please handle their used motor oil responsibly! Remember, just one litre of used motor oil can contaminate one million litres of water. To learn more about what you can do with your used motor oil please click here. So what exactly is World Oceans Day? World Oceans Day aims to raise awareness of the role of the oceans and the importance of conserving and protecting our marine environment. Background The 8th of June is observed internationally as World Oceans Day. While the day has been unofficially celebrated since the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, in December 2008, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution to officially recognise World Oceans Day on June 8 each year. This special day is an opportunity to celebrate the world’s shared oceans and to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in people lives. The oceans are essential to food security and the health and survival of all life. They also power our climate and are a critical part of the biosphere. World Oceans Day is an opportunity to raise global awareness of the current challenges faced by the international community in connection with the oceans. Observance of World Oceans Day in South Africa The observance of World Oceans Day in South Africa allows us to highlight the impact of oceans on our country and the various ways in which oceans contribute to our country. Celebrating the day provides the department with an opportunity to highlight the considerable challenges we face in dealing with marine pollution, maintaining the oceans’ capacity to regulate the global climate, supply essential ecosystem services and provide sustainable livelihoods and safe recreation. The celebration of the day coincides with and forms part of the dedication of June as National Environment Month.
