World - Dive Into World Oceans Day: How To Help Preserve Our Blue Planet

Today is World Oceans Day – originally launched in 1992 to help minimise our impact on our ‘blue planet. As travellers, we can also play our part by choosing our destinations wisely, and even helping with marine conservation when we get there.

Today is World Oceans Day – originally launched in 1992 to help minimise our impact on our ‘blue planet’. This year, the international day is calling on world leaders to protect 30% of oceans by 2030. “This critical need is called 30x30,” says the organisation. “By safeguarding at least 30% of our oceans, through a network of highly protected areas, we can help ensure a healthy home for all.”

As travellers, we can also play our part by choosing our destinations wisely, and even helping with marine conservation when we get there. Here are some of the exceptional trips to earmark for the future, where you can holiday and help the health of our planet.
