World Oceans Day :: Dia Mundial dos Oceanos

World Oceans Day, by CreatureshireJune 8th is World Oceans Day! Oceans are as essential to human life as forests and generate most of the oxygen in planet Earth. They are also the home of countless amazing creatures, in all sorts of sizes, shapes and colours: some of them look pretty much extra-terrestrial, like the nudibranch or the jellyfish.

If you live near the coast it is quite easy to find yourself surprised at the variety of life that relates to the sea: sea birds, algae, the small organisms that live in the rock pools… the list goes on forever. And it makes me think that the oceans are a wonderful thing to celebrate and to protect.

 To celebrate with you I made a tutorial for a stingray inspired by the Bluespotted ribbontail ray as a reminder of World Oceans Day. Pick your favourite colors of polymer clay or plasticine, gather your imagination and have fun!

Dia 8 de Junho é o Dia Mundial dos Oceanos! Os oceanos são essenciais à vida humana e, como as florestas, geram a maior parte do oxigénio do planeta Terra. São também a casa de inúmeras criaturas espectaculares, com todo o tipo de tamanhos, formas e cores: algumas delas parecem bastante extra-terrestres, como os nudibrânqios ou as alforrecas.

Se vivem junto à costa é muito ficarão surpresos facilmente com a variedade de vida que se relaciona com o mar: aves marinhas, algas, os pequenos organismos nas poças de maré… a lista é interminável. E faz-me pensar que os oceanos são uma coisa fantástica para ser celebrada e protegida.

Para celebrar convosco fiz um tutorial para uma raia inspirado na arraia-uge-manchas-azuis como uma lembrança do Dia Mundial dos Oceanos. Escolham as vossas cores preferidas em massa polimérica ou plasticina, juntem-lhes a vossa imaginação e divirtam-se!
