June is World Oceans Month

This month is World Oceans Month, a time to learn and share what is important about the huge parts of the world that the oceans cover. Oceans make up more than 90% of the habitable space on the planet and are home to a majority of Earth’s life. In President Obama’s statement on the U.S.’s own National Oceans Month, he pointed to a need to ensure the long-term health, resilience, and productivity of our marine environments.
