5 Virtual Underwater Experiences for World Oceans Day

June 10, 2020

Taking place on 8 June each year, World Oceans Day is a day when the world celebrates and honours our blue planet. This year's goal is to call on world leaders to protect 30% of our oceans by the year 2030—an initiative referred to as 30x30. Get involved by signing the petition and start appreciating the deep blue by diving into our top five virtual underwater experiences:
