World oceans day

Today is World Oceans Day – a day used to “inform the public of the impact human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans.”

Seas and oceans cover over 70% of our planet, and they’re home to over a million species. But life in the oceans is threatened by climate change, pollution – especially from plastics – and over-fishing. On the Usborne website you’ll find lots of books and resources to help you find out more about oceans and how we can all help.

Coral reefs are home to many species, and they help to protect coastlines from storms and floods. At least 50% of coral reefs have died over the last 30 years, as a result of pollution and physical destruction. Usborne has made a donation to the International Coral Reef Society, which represents scientists working on coral reefs and funds local research and education programmes. We're also very pleased to be publishing an exciting range of coral reef books in 2021 and 2022 – from Magic Painting to Peep Inside.
