World Oceans Day, on 8 June, is a chance to celebrate our oceans. Oceans feed millions of people yearly, are home to diverse marine life and help to regulate our climate.

The Commission is a high level initiative aimed at reversing degradation of the ocean and restoring it to full health and productivity. Its focus is on the high seas, the areas that lie outside the jurisdiction of individual governments.
