"Together we can protect and restore our oceans."
2019 Theme - Gender & Sustainability
This year the theme for World Oceans Day is gender and sustainability. We have found some interesting facts about gender equality and the ocean from the UN's website, you can see the full fun infographic here.
- Did you know that only 2% of the 1.2 million seafarers are women?
- Only 38% of marine scientists are women.
- The women working in aquaculture earn 64% of their male counterparts wage!
- Women and children are 14x more likely to be injured or killed in natural disasters due to unequal access to resources.
This years theme wants to empower women to lead in conservation and study to protect the ocean.
Not only that but every year World Oceans Day acts as an opportunity for ocean lovers, such as us, to raise awareness for the oceans, to encourage change and collaboration to improve the health of the worlds ocean.
