We are celebrating World Oceans Day with a special message from the Pacific Ocean Commissioner
“Our ocean covers a third of the globe – we must celebrate it and protect it. Our voice must be heard, our leadership matters,” says Dame Meg Taylor, the Pacific Ocean Commissioner and Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, as we celebrate World Oceans Day today.
Events are planned around the globe to celebrate the ocean, which for Pacific people links us all, economically, socially, environmentally and importantly, culturally. The theme for this year’s World Oceans Day is ‘Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet’.
“The ocean, climate and weather are linked and the impacts of climate change on our ocean are already being felt by many of us. But we are strong and we will not give up on our ocean, our homes or our future. We ask the same of you,” says Dame Meg.
