June 8th is World Oceans Day

In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 8th as "World Oceans Day" (resolution 63/111, paragraph 171).  This Tuesday, conservation groups, schools, business, and governments around the world will host events and activities to celebrate the world's oceans, a day of tribute clouded by concern over the Deep Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
