Our seas bring us so much joy; they not only sustain livelihoods and provide beautiful habitats for marine wildlife, our ocean also provides us with beach-settings for precious memories, and contributes enormously to our well-being.
But our relationship can't be one-sided - we must look after our ocean as it looks after us.

Let's take time to consider how we can respect and protect our ocean and invest in our future health and happiness.
