This Petition is started with the aim to raise the issue of renaming the Western Indian Ocean to AFRICAN OCEAN. A modern analysis of legal and scientific aspects has also pointed to the fact that many organizations view the Western Indian Ocean as a separate body from the rest of the Indian Ocean. Similarly scientific organizations have found conclusive scientific proof which substantially proves that the Western Indian Ocean does not share any characteristics with the Indian Ocean hence the Western Indian Ocean has a separate & distinct nature.
For all the legal, scientific, historic reasons stated herein this study provide the basis that now is the right time to give this Ocean region it true representative name which is African Ocean. The name African Ocean highlights its significant linkage with the African continent that has been underplayed for millennia by the European colonial and imperial powers.
