Photos: World Ocean Day is June 8

A beautiful barracuda joruneying through Belize (above) is just one of the stunning pictures of underwater marine life released to mark World Ocean Day next month.

My Late Deals have collated the images to mark their latest campaign focusing on World Oceans Day. This year it falls on Monday 8th June 2020 and will see people around the planet celebrate and honour the ocean. As we do every day in Bournemouth.

To celebrate World Oceans Day, My Late Deals have compiled their favourite underwater photos, giving us the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the wildlife and spectacular reefs that live within them, and reminding us why we should be working so hard to protect them.

From barracudas in Belize, to great white sharks in Mexico to colourful corals in Thailand, these images are also perfect for parents home-schooling to get children interested in the ocean.

Starting in Canada, the annual event aims to promote marine conservation. This year’s theme is ‘Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean’.

The Government of Canada proposed setting a World Ocean Day during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. The UN officially recognized 8 June as World Oceans Day in December 2008. The Day is coordinated by The Ocean Project, a not-for-profit international community foundation.

There are a number of posters and stickers available to download here:
