The historic UN Ocean Conference came together on Wednesday to celebrate World Oceans Day together with people from around the world.

In his message to mark the day, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said "the conservation and sustainable use" of the ocean could only be achieved through collective action.

A special ceremony involving ocean advocates, scientists, youth, business leaders and senior diplomats and politicians took place at UN Headquarters to honour the ocean.

Matthew Wells was watching.
