Right out of the blue.
You probably already know that up to 80% of all life on earth is found under the surface of the ocean. And that the oceans contain 99% of the living space on the planet.
But did you know that the oceans contain 97% of the Earth's water? That fish supply the greatest percentage of the world's protein consumed by humans...and that each year, three times as much trash is dumped into the oceans as the weight of fish caught?
This Saturday is Oceans Day, so let's wear blue and tell two. Because all of the water we'll ever have is already here, and since 72% of the world's surface is covered in it...
...we're really all Islanders on it together.
