World Oceans Day is celebrated on June 8 and aims to raise awareness about the important role oceans play in our lives. It promotes ocean conservation, sustainable management of resources, and the protection of marine environments. Events around the world highlight the significance of healthy oceans for a sustainable future. Given the challenges of climate change and the negative impacts of over-tourism, it is our responsibility as travellers to care for the places we visit. Adopting the 'Leave No Trace' policy when travelling is essential. Fortunately, there are various non-governmental organisations dedicated to preserving the earth's natural treasures and keeping them clean. As travellers and inhabitants of the world, we have the opportunity to volunteer with these organisations and participate in occasional beach clean-ups. This World Ocean Day, we have compiled a list of non-governmental organisations you can join to contribute to the preservation and safety of natural sites. Take a step forward and check out the list to make a difference.
