Seas The Day

Today is World Ocean Day. It is 30 years since the Canadians first proposed a special day to celebrate, honour and protect our oceans and the life within them. 
This year the focus is therefore 30x30 - to protect at least 30% of our lands, oceans and waters by 2030
As well as the World Ocean Day website, you can find lots of other resources on the Marine Stewardship Council site. [you may have seen the MSC logo on your canned fish labels]

You can find out how to make a difference, even if you live miles from the sea...

  1. shop for sustainable seafood
  2. get creative in the kitchen
  3. learn more about sustainable fisheries
  4. stay informed
The MSC has lots of activities for younger children and the WOD site includes the popular characters from Octonauts and Fraggle Rock
You can make fish nuggets* with the children, play card games, colour posters, and do crafts, whilst you talk about the importance of the oceans. 
And there are links to petitions, which encourage world governments to take positive actions to protect our blue planet.
* no grandchildren around this week, but I may make Bob fish nuggets anyway!


  1. That's good to know! I wasn't aware of this day!

  2. You are not alone - it has been around for 30 years and I'm not sure I've been conscious of it before.

  3. I had no idea that this proposal came from Canada, even though we are bounded by 3 oceans. I guess the fact that many of us would have to drive for days to reach any of them makes a difference. In England it was a matter of hours no matter where you were. I'm certainly concerned about all the oceans that we have been abusing for decades with garbage and oil spills.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
