It’s #WorldTurtleDay tomorrow and what’s the biggest threat to turtles? Global warming. ⠀
99% of green sea turtles in the Northern Great Barrier Reef were born female this year. The temperature of the sand affected the incubation process of the turtle eggs, with higher temperatures creating more female hatchlings. This is a problem. Future turtle generations will not be able to reproduce. This is a huge symptom of climate change. We need to act now and demand that our government fast tracks to renewables. Sign the petition in our bio now!

I think it’s vital to challenge ourselves to keep learning and developing, this doesn’t have to mean post secondary school or any standardized path, but at least choosing one way to gain knowledge that will make us form new insights, cause synapses to fire in our brains, stir our sense of wonder, awaken us into action, and hopefully blow our minds so that we are out of air and flabbergasted by the amount of detail engrossed in this strange and wonderful existence. A lot of people say school is a big waste of time (which I don’t agree with, it really depends on the person), but a life filled with learning will never be. When you think about it, it’s one of the grandest parts of life, and one that never ceases until our pulse does.
So grateful to have learned from and been a part of the first Surfrider Canada Conference hosted by @surfrider_pacificrim, thank you to all the folks from our amazing sister chapters @surfridervan & @surfridervi, and of course, thanks to multiple staff who made it out from HQ @surfrider. Coming together has a way of deepening inspiration and making us a stronger collective, which is essential as we go forward in our ocean protection endeavours. Thanks to my wonderful friend, mentor and partner in mischief Michelle Hall @cedarwoodcove, for organizing and pulling off this ambitious event that will have a strong part in shaping the future of our organization 🌊✌🏽🎒

Packed into the tuk tuk and then enroute via bus yesterday to Kep, then Koh Seh Island, the home of Marine Conservation Cambodia. Paul Ferber and his family, staff, and crew of volunteers are hard at work there, protecting and rehabilitating the Marine protected area and reef off of the island, which had been devestated by illegal fishing and trawling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Where the only sound you hear is your heartbeat 💗 and you dance delicately with a survival instinct you can no longer take for granted. 😶🧘🏻‍♀️ #breathedeepseekpeace

Three Magnificent Frigatebirds tonight. Steadfastly holding their place in the sky. Generations before them guides for ocean-going vessels. Watching the world turn, the oceans change. Silent sentinels witnessing our foolish ways, waiting for our next move.

There is a reason someone named them Magnificent.

Thank you for using this awesome encounter with “Flash” the great white shark to showcase the importance of sharks and their role in the ecosystem @mission_blue 😀💙🦈!! This shark frequents the Guadalupe Island, Mexico area on his annual migration route and was photographed on one of our conservation expeditions there. This photo has always mesmerized us because it’s the first time our founder, Angela saw the blue eye up close! Some think great white sharks have cold, black eyes but they are actually quite blue and expressive! Flash is an ambassador for his kind! 💙🦈😍#NoBlueNoGreen #marineprotectedareas #sharks #photography #HopeSpots #marineconservation #marinebiology #greatwhiteshark #OceanOptimism #SharkTeamOne #expeditions #endangeredspecies #photography #underwaterphotography #exploration #extremetravel #sharkweek #filmmaking #canon_photos #shotonacanon #artlens #canonphoto #artphotography #science #savespecies #savesharks #AngelaSmith_endangeredspecies_photos

#IAMNOTPLASTIC

As the hashtag suggests these straws are not plastic. They actually something called #bioplastic made from #cassava. These straws are made by @avanieco along with a range of plant based alternatives to disposable plastic packaging ranging from coffee cups to take away containers to rain ponchos (yes, really) and they're all compostable, even in home compost. Avani Eco began in Bali back in 2014 to combat Indonesia's plastic pollution problem. Their mission is to replace all single use plastic with bio-'plastic' items just like these straws. Keep up the good work Avani!

@Regrann from @melisacardona - 🕯 Planet or Plastic?

My sister and I have committed to making our home a plastic free environment. And if we do end up with anything plastic it’s recycled weekly ♻️ •


In the next 50 years our oceans are predicted to have more plastic bottles than fish. AND I LOVE FISH. 🐠 🐟 🎣

@NatGeo have created a fantastic resource raising awareness of
the global plastic crisis and reducing the amount of single-use plastic that is polluting our world’s oceans. They've have even given up wrapping their future issue in plastic! Check out it how - natgeo.com/planetorplastic

Did you know that the Endangered Species Act has over 1400 species on the list today?
Because of its implementation since 1973, this act has managed to save 99% of animals under its protection (@oceana) and today we ask for your help to keep it that way.

The largest living mammal on earth, the blue whale, migrates from both poles in the oceans around the world. Unfortunately, excessive commercial hunting has decrease its population drastically and now its mere existence is threatened. According to IUCN’s 2016 estimate, the global population of the Blue Whale is 10,000–25,000. Let’s protect them #Endangeredspecies @oceanconnectors @oceanconservation_ @mission_blue Imaging @montereybayaquarium @semarnat_mexico #oceanoptimism
