World Oceans Day – Wednesday, June 8th
June 8, 2022
How to make an impact on World Oceans Day – One of the best and easiest actions to take during World Oceans Day is to organize or participate in a beach clean-up initiative. One of the biggest current threats to the ocean is the amount of plastic that is disposed of everywhere, including the litter that people leave on the beach. It is estimated that 13 million tons of plastic goes into the ocean every year, killing 100 thousand marine life as a consequence. This can easily translate to our lakes, rivers, and streams here in Michigan. When you see trash while you are recreating, pick it up and dispose of it properly! Our lakes, rivers, and streams are important ecosystems that need our care and conservation.
