World Oceans Day takes place annually on June 8th and is a day to recognize the sea’s importance as a vital ecosystem and to encourage action to preserve its delicate habitats and wildlife. With over 300,000 members in 150 countries, Oceana’s science-based policies have greatly reduced over-fishing and protected threatened marine habitats.
To honor World Ocean Day and share the experience of Oceana’s extraordinary work, La Mer sponsored a deep-sea dive in Belize with Oceana Spokeswoman January Jones. A passionate sea advocate and distinguished actress, January has been working with Oceana to raise awareness and help educate the public about ocean issues and ways to get involved.
