World Ocean Day 2021
The long road to recovery
As the global vaccination programme gains momentum, the world is starting to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic with our focus firmly fixed on recovery. It’s not just the effects of the pandemic that require amelioration, however. What we’re also seeing emerge is a refreshed emphasis on the mitigation of climate change. As today marks World Ocean Day, there’s no doubt that if we are to save our planet from the effects of human activity, further protection of our precious oceans is required.
The UN Environment Programme elected to concentrate this year’s World Environment Day (June 5th) on resetting humanity’s relationship with nature and launched the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration – a global push to prevent, halt, and reverse ecosystem degradation. On this day, the UK government also pledged over £8 million towards projects to boost international conservation in the UK Overseas Territories.
