This World Oceans Day, let’s celebrate how water connects us all! 
Why we should celebrate the ocean, by the numbers: 
For 2.6 billion people, the ocean is their primary source of protein.
For 3 billion people, the ocean is their livelihood.
For all of us, the ocean absorbs more than 30 percent of carbon dioxide produced by humans, slowing climate change and allowing us a quality of life that, without the ocean, would not be possible (if we could survive at all).
A recent estimate suggests that there may be as many as 1 million species of non-bacterial life in the world’s waterways YET to be identified.
Though Earth is 70 percent water, an incredible 90 percent of this aquatic real estate has yet to be discovered.
