This is a declaration of solidarity with global marine conservation advocacies that limit human-caused damage to the marine ecosystem that include oceans, salt marsh and intertidal ecology, estuaries and lagoons, mangroves and coral reefs, the deep sea and the sea floor. Very much like how Earth Day is celebrated by many, consciousness about the importance of marine life should also be propagated among countries of the world. It is hoped that this becomes its rallying symbol.
