The Oceans Day will be observed today in Bangladesh and elsewhere across the globe to raise awareness of the vital importance of our oceans and the role they play in sustaining a healthy planet.

A global celebration, it looks to bring people and organisations together across the globe in a series of events highlighting how we can all help protect and conserve the oceans.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres issued a message marking the day. In his message, he said, “Our seas are choking with plastic waste, which can be found from the remotest atolls to the deepest ocean trenches.”
