As a reminder, this year and for the third year, the World Ocean Day Conservation Action Focus is to support the growing momentum for a global commitment to “30×30”: Protect at least 30% of our lands, waters, and ocean by 2030 to create a healthy ocean with abundant wildlife and help stabilize the climate.

Sign this year’s 30×30 petition and share it with anyone you know who supports protecting our blue planet!

We support any type of involvement around World Ocean Day, and strongly encourage integrating the 30×30 action and youth engagement whenever possible.


However you are celebrating and honoring our ocean now, in June, and throughout the year – thank you and know that World Ocean Day is here to support your efforts!
