Jessica Rosenberg / June 6, 2018
June 8, 2018 marks the 16th World Oceans Day, a day designed to celebrate our oceans and spark a worldwide discussion about how we can all pull together to protect our most precious of resources. Dive into these five magazines to explore our oceans and maybe discover something new about the watery portion of our planet.
“Save Our Oceans” by @theaudience1noj: This magazine is a collection of information about the films, filmmakers, and jury members that came together for the Audience Awards’ Ocean Film Challenge. For this initiative, filmmakers were invited to create short films on the impact that humans have on the oceans and the actions—like wearing coral safe sunscreen and reducing the use of plastic products—people can take to protect our waters.
“Under The Seas” by @kathyarria: Flip through this mag and lose yourself in the startling beauty that can be found in the world’s oceans. This collection of photos features some of the most astounding sea creatures known to humankind, from the brightest of fish to some surprisingly transparent and luminous animals.
“Sustainable Seafood & Oceans” by @mhartley2012: Over 100 million tons of fish are eaten worldwide each year, which raises serious questions about sustainability. Arm yourself with information that can help you change the tide towards protecting the resource that provides two and half billion people with 20% of their animal protein intake.
“Marine Life” by @allisonmgale: The world’s oceans cover 70% of the planet and are filled with types of marine life that most people can barely fathom. This magazine features articles about the fish, mammals, and various organisms that populate our waters, so you can catch a glimpse of what lives in the sea and understand why we all need to work together to protect their habitat.
“Scuba News” by @divebr: Whether you have the right gear or not, this is a great mag to dive into to gain a unique scuba diver’s perspective on the oceans. Meet the animals divers love to swim with and learn about different ways organizations are teaming up to protect the marine life that scuba lovers enjoy exploring first hand.
