June 1992, over 150 Heads of States signed the Convention on Biological
Diversity at Rio de Janeiro. They did so to express a shared belief that
action must be taken to halt the worldwide loss of animal and plant species
and genetic resources.
World Oceans Day was first declared as 8th June at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Events will occur all around the world on and around this day.
