Mother Ocean Day
Mother Ocean Day is a new holiday and appeared in 2013. The South Florida Fishing Club has secured the approval of the city of Miami to make this day official. The clearance of Florida’s beaches and the aquamarine waters were the main reasons why Miami residents supported the idea of creating a day dedicated to the beauty and wonder of the ocean.
The ocean is not only for rest and sunbathing! It also plays a main role in plant life on the planet. There are 5 oceans on our planet which cover 70% of the Earth and produce half of the Earth’s oxygen. World ocean also affects climate changes and able to carry warm air to the South and North poles.
We cannot forget that the ocean is home to many different life forms. There are 240,470 accepted species in accordance with the World Register of Marine Species but they are probably only a small part of all existing marine creatures. Humanity has been explored less than 5 per cent of the ocean and much work remains to be done to get closer to solving the mysterious aquatic world.
How Can You Take Part in Mother Ocean Day?
The surfboard will be one of the most successful attributes for you this day. It’s a great excuse to learn how to conquer the waves. Diving is another incredible way to celebrate World Ocean Day. Explore plants, swim with fishes and other creatures that live in the ocean. If you don’t want to get wet, take some friends and make a picnic on the beach. The smell of the air, the sun and the noise of the water will help you get closer to the ocean. If you can’t go to the beach, then cook seafood with your family and spend time at home.
We should always respect the oceans and the beaches and never polluting them in any way, so future generations can enjoy them as much as we do today. Happy World Ocean Day!
