June 8, 2013 is World Oceans Day! Living in the center (roughly) of a large continent, thousands of miles from the ocean, it’s easy to forget about the vast bodies of salt water that cover our planet. But on June 8, even folks in land-locked Oklahoma are celebrating marine life. See what’s happening in your neck of the woods on this interactive map that shows what a global event World Oceans Day is.
