Mother Ocean Day


Mother Ocean Day is a relatively new celebration, as it was introduced for the first time in 2013. It is similar to World Oceans Day, celebarted on June 8th, and has the same purpose: to remind everyone of the major part the ocean has in everyday life. Conserving and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources is also one of the 17 Goals to Transform Our World, instated by the United Nations in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Did You Know?
Here are some interesting facts about the oceans:
  • They occupy nearly 71% of our planet's surface;
  • More than 97% of all our planet's water is contained in the ocean;
  • More than 90% of this habitat exists in the deep sea, known as the abyss;
  • Less than 10% of this living space has been explored by humans.

Top 5 Oceans in the Spiral
We have many oceans and seas in the Spiral, and I decided to share my favorite places for Mother Ocean Day. For the purpose of this post, I considered oceans and seas the same (even though they are not).

1. Northern Sea - the Nothern Sea in Polaris, home to the Pingouins and Sea Lions, is the perfect location for Ice Wizards to train and practice their magic undisturbed.

2. StarFall Sea - this stormy, melancholic and vast sea, surrounding the Ruined Alcazar in Khrysalis, is definitely the place where Storm Wizards can replenish their batteries and get the power flowing again.

3. The Grotto - the perfect spot for Wizards who seek to go scuba diving during their extracurricular activities, and explore coral reef and the underwater fauna.

4. Atlantea - the long lost home of the God of the seas, Poseidon, Atlantea is a mythical place, long thought to have been swallowed by the seas.

5. Floating Lands - the sunny beaches and warm sea of Celestia make it the perfect spot for a Summer vacation, which is only a few weeks away.
