Description

Happy #WorldOceansDay! Today, let’s sea-lebrate the abundance of life that resides in inner-space—from coral reefs to the open ocean to the kelp forests found right off of our back deck! Besides covering 70% of the planet’s surface, the ocean represents over 90% of the living space on “Earth”. As we hear in the news time and again about the discovery of oceans on other worlds and with them a tantalizing promise of life beyond our own, let’s take this day to reflect on our watery world and the life that has yet to be discovered here at home, hidden beneath the waves. The global ocean makes us the pale blue dot suspended in a sunbeam that the Voyager spacecraft saw on its way out of the solar system—so to be stewards of the sea means to be proud Earthlings. With your help, we're trying to be just that. Don't forget to be inspired by the planet we all share and the ocean that makes us possible!
