World Ocean Day 2022 – Once Ocean, One Climate, One Future - Together
World Ocean Day 2022 is here! To celebrate World Ocean Day we will again be working with Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) to celebrate our oceans but also to raise awareness of the need to protect them.
Wednesday June 8th 2022 is World Ocean Day - people around the blue planet celebrate and honour the ocean, which connects us all. For a week (8th June to Tuesday 14th June) we will be offering the choice between £4 off when you spend £50 OR a £5 donation to Whale and Dolphin Conservation.

A healthy world ocean is critical to our survival. Every year, World Ocean Day provides a unique opportunity to honour, help protect, and conserve our world’s shared ocean.
The ocean is important because it:
Generates most of the oxygen we breathe;
Helps feed us;
Regulates our climate;
Cleans the water we drink;
Offers a pharmacopeia of medicines;
Provides limitless inspiration!
Provides a home to billions of unique creatures
For 2022 World Ocean Day is growing the global movement to call on world leaders to protect 30% of our blue planet by 2030. This critical need is called 30x30. By safeguarding at least 30% of our ocean through a network of highly protected areas we can help ensure a healthy home for all! You can sign the petition here.

|Ending Captivity: More than 3,500 whales, dolphins and porpoises are held in tanks, which has long term effects on their physical and mental wellbeing. But the tide is turning. People like you are boycotting captive theme parks and supporting WDC to make this the last generation of whales and dolphins in captivity. Find out more about ending captivity|
|Stopping Whaling: Each year, commercial whalers kill over 1,000 whales. Dolphins are also hunted, with more than100,000 killed every year in legal and illegal hunts around the world. WDC has helped stop illegal exports of whale meat and attempts to make commercial whaling legal again for three decades. Now it’s time to end it once and for all.|
|Creating Healthy Seas: The ocean covers over 70% of the world’s surface and generates 50% of the oxygen we breathe, yet only a tiny percentage is ‘protected.’ The threats of entanglement in fishing gear, plastics and pollution are combining to make the whole ocean unsafe and unhealthy. The ocean is important for all life on earth and it is up to us to protect it.|
|Prevent deaths in nets: Hundreds of thousands of whales, dolphins and porpoises die in fishing gear every year. It is a horrible way to die and it’s threatening many vulnerable species.|
