Happy World Oceans Day 2010!


Today is the day (but shouldn't be the only day) we set aside every year as an opportunity to honor and raise awareness about issues surrounding the world's oceans!

From the United Nations, which in 2008 declared June 8 as World Oceans Day:

... World Oceans Day allows us to highlight the many ways in which oceans contribute to society. It is also an opportunity to recognize the considerable challenges we face in maintaining their capacity to regulate the global climate, supply essential ecosystem services and provide sustainable livelihoods and safe recreation.

To help celebrate the effort behind and the celebration of World Oceans Day, 10% of all Neutral Dive Gear proceeds today will be donated to The Ocean Project.

Tasked with instilling in people a lasting and measurable awareness of the importance, value, and sensitivity of the ocean, The Ocean Project in partnership with the World Ocean Network has been promoting World Oceans Day since 2003. And we're so thankful for all their hard work.

So grab some stylish scuba threads and help us donate to a terrific organization working diligently to advance ocean conservation!

Too bad the celebration of World Oceans Day has been obviously curtailed or atleast shaken by BP´s oil spill.

Experets assume, however, that this is going to Bankrupt BP.

Regardless, Happy World Oceans Day!

't was a bit tougher to celebrate this year, with the spill looming in everyone's mind. The only good that can come from this disaster is a greater awareness of just how precious our oceans really are.
