Today is World Oceans Day. Themed Oceans of lives, it is celebrated this year with the 50th anniversary of a favorite children’s book One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr Seuss.
World Oceans Day is an opportunity every year to honor the world’s ocean, celebrate the products the ocean provides, such as seafood, as well as marine life itself for aquariums, pets, and also a time to appreciate its own intrinsic value. (via wikipedia)
In light of recent catastrophes like the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, we are reminded of how vulnerable our ecosystem is.
After taking a dive yesterday with underwater photographer Au Yong Seok Wun, lets spend today above sea level to admire the works of a couple of flickrettes from different ends of the world.
