Ocean Unite  Bringing together powerful voices for #ocean #conservation.

Here at Aquatica, ocean conservation is of utmost importance to us. For our Belize expedition we are partnering with @oceanunite which strongly supports the 30x30 initiative, a mission to protect 30% of our ocean by 2030. Creating preservation zones is beneficial in a multitude of ways: helping mitigate climate change, creating safe havens for threatened species, global economic benefits, and overall ecosystem health. This is a cause we strongly support and would love it if you did too. Donate if you can to Ocean Unite or spread the word as much as possible using #ocean30x30

Thanks for the shoutout @aquaticasubs!

The @IPCC special report calls for action in all areas of society and industry to limit global warming. Sustainable development and supporting Sustainable Development Goals is vital. Marine protected areas can mitigate effects of climate change and conserve precious marine ecosystems.

We love this post and its #OceanProtect30by30 message!

What a handful! 👐These are loggerhead turtle hatchlings – only a few minutes old – on their way to the ocean.

Amongst West African countries, Cape Verde has by far the largest area of ocean – a global hotspot for marine wildlife with many emblematic and unique marine animals. 📸 Elisa Dierickx

Did you know? More people have ventured into outer space than to the deepest depths of our Ocean.
.
At its deepest point, the Ocean is nearly 11 km deep (over 2 km deeper than Mount Everest is high), yet the deep sea seems a whole different world away.⠀
.⠀
The high seas are part of the global commons and governed collectively by all nations. Once thought to be barren and devoid of life, it is now known that the high seas are one of the largest reservoirs of biodiversity on Earth.⠀

Iridigorgia magnispiralis is one of the most iconic and beautiful deep-sea corals. This species can grow to several metres in height.⠀
.⠀
The deep ocean is the largest ecosystem on the planet – it occupies over 45 per cent of our planet’s surface and more than 95 per cent of all habitable space – and yet less than five per cent of it has been explored. ⠀

2018 is the 3rd International Year of the Reef. We need to use this opportunity to build awareness about the value of, and threats to coral reefs, and how different stakeholders can work together to share information and promote protection. – – – – – Photo credit: The Ocean Agency @jaynejenkins #coralreefs #GreatBarrierReef #healthyocean #healthyclimate #oceanprotection #protection #oceanconservation #climatechange #oceanacidification #resilience #abundance #biodiversity #marinelife #action #oceancommunity

Plastic in the ocean has a disproportionately large impact on ocean wildlife and habitats. More efforts are needed by governments to take leadership on environmental policy to cooperate and tackle this global scourge. Action is needed now, not ten years from now. – – – – – Photo credit: The Ocean Agency #oceanplastic #plasticpollution #BeatPlasticPollution #singleuse #plastic #stopsingleuse #microplastics #debris #marinepollution #impact #responsibility #protection #consumption

It is in all of our long-term interest to support precautionary, ecosystem-based measures that focus on ensuring sustainability for decades to come. Well-managed, sustainable fisheries can generate significant economic value, well beyond their current levels. – – – – – Photo credit: Fabrice Dudenhofer #overfishing #sustainability #fisheries #oceans #IUU #seafood #bycatch #recovery #marinelife #ecosystems #protection #MPAs #research

While individual corals can survive and recover from a bleaching, repeated or extended bleaching events can kill them off for good. 2018 is the 3rd International Year of the Reef. We need to use this opportunity to build awareness about the value of, and threats to coral reefs, and how different stakeholders can work together to share information and promote protection. – – – – – Photo credit: The Ocean Agency #coral #ecosystems #ocean #climatechange #coralbleaching #reef #scuba #diving #marinelife #oceanconservation #healthyocean #healthyclimate #underwater

For the ocean to carry on functioning as a key life-support system, providing food, jobs and oxygen to name just a few of the things we term economic “services”, we cannot ignore the 2/3 of the ocean that makes up the high seas. Now is the time for a robust international agreement that reflects the realities of the 21st century and turns the tide so that instead of destroying life in the sea, we revitalize and rebuild it. – – – – – #highseas #ocean #support #fishing #mining #pollution #negotiation #agreement #marinelife #marinebiodiversity #oceanconservation #deepsea #globalocean

Marine reserves can help marine ecosystems and people withstand the effects and adapt to ocean acidification, sea-level rise, increased intensity of storms, shifts in species distribution and decreased productivity and oxygen availability. – – – – – #marinereserves #marineprotectedareas #ocean #oceanprotection #oceanconservation #acidification #sealevel #marinebiodiversity #biodiversity #marinelife #MPAs #ecosystems #reef
