UN Officially Makes June 8 World Oceans Day
In all the hubbub of Earth Day, it's easy to get caught up in land-bound activities and conservation, and forget about the oceans. But here is one announcement that the oceans will particularly be thankful for. The United Nations, after 16 years of tabling it, have finally made June 8 World Oceans Day.Disney, apparently, didn't get the memo. Oceans, the movie, is spectacularly scheduled to be released in 2010 on Earth Day.
Carolyn Elefant, hosting Blawg Review #215 on the very first official World Oceans Day, June 8, 2009, "does the business", as the host of last week's presentation would say.
