Good Evening everyone! Tomorrow I start a very important day...I start college tomorrow. I just wanted to say it has been a very beautiful journey the moment I created this Instagram account. My passion grew bigger and stronger and the people I inspire fills me with joy. Starting tomorrow, I will begin that journey to become a professional marine biologist. I'm going to focus my full attention to my studies and my school. There is going to be a point where I don't post anything for days; maybe even a week. I will be inactive for the majority of the part. Will this Instagram always be inactive? NO! I will try to post when I have the time and the availability. I'm so excited for college and I'm one step closer into becoming the person I was born to be! Thank you guys so much and wish me luck tomorrow as I start the journey towards my future! The future is bright towards the ones who have faith and motivation! Love you guys! ~Explore. Educate.

ATTENTION EVERYONE! NEW PETITION: Save Florida's Gulf Coast and stop the Red Tide! ~๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒŠ~ The convergence of four unique harmful blooms, including the deadly Cyanobacteria resulting from unfiltered toxic water being released en masse into the ocean from Lake Okeechobee, are killing Floridaโ€™s endangered coastal marine life, including large mammals, faster than the bulldozers can haul away the endless mountains of dead carcasses lining the beaches that reappear daily for hundreds of miles.ย We demand that Governor Rick Scott take immediate and drastic action to ensure this ToxicTide never happens again.
Many reports claim that this is merely a naturally occurring Red Tide, that itโ€™s not a serious public safety issue and that it has nothing to do with human pollution โ€“ this is false. The government and some media outlets are trying to sweep this under the rug and lull you into a false sense of safety.
In reality, we are under attack from four unique blooms, two of which are toxic: Red Tide, Cyanobacteria, Brown Seaweed and Red Seaweed. These combine to create the perfect recipe for the toxic soup that isย decimating our marine life, sending people to the hospital, causing permanent neurological and immunological damage to many of our most vulnerable loved ones, and causing human death in some instances.
Conditions are so dangerous and critical that Governor Rick Scott issued a State of Emergency to attempt to โ€œcombatโ€ the toxic blooms.ย However, declaring a State of Emergency does nothing to address the root issues of agricultural runoff from Floridaโ€™s Big Sugar Industry, Radioactive Phosphorus Mining, lack of oversight for septic-tank use, fertilizer use by resorts and golf courses, and the warming waters of climate change (a term Governor Rick Scott banned government employees and agencies from using) contributing to this life-threatening situation.

That is why Governor Scott needs to follow the lead of 22 other states, like New York and Michigan, by creating an immediate action plan to address the destruction of our environment and mitigate the causes of toxic blooms in Floridaโ€™s priority waterbodies. ~Explore.

Magical moments shared playing with a pod of wild dolphins, watching them swim over the top of us, spinning and circling around. Instead of spending your money watching dolphins perform a forced act, while living in tiny enclosed tanks, spend that money and time and go see what our open oceans have to offer.


The documentary concerns the captivity of Tilikum, an orca involved in the deaths of three individuals, and the consequences of keeping orcas in captivity.

The Faroe Island slaughtered has recently begun. I want to share some information with you all. This slaughter of pilot whales and dolphins has been happening for years. The people claim it to be tradition and because the Faroe Islands have like 50,000 people, they use the whale blubber for food, clothing, etc. However, many animal activists have protested this is a cruel event and it is not associated with traditional customs. Even so, the year 2018 we are all connected and transportation for food is easily done. Fishermen and locals, mostly locals, use sharp knifes to stab the pilot whales to death. They use similar methods like Taiji, Japan: Use boats to trap them in the shore and the locals take it from there. Many activists claim its abuse; they are not killed one by one and many have to swim in the blood of their relatives desperately trying to escape. The locals use a argument however: What's the difference between us slaughtering whales and you Americans slaughtering and abusing pigs, cows and chickens? This argument, I have to say, makes a point: However I'm vegetarian and people who are vegans or vegetarians can fight and not be hypocrites. I'm sorry but people who say what is happening in Japan and the dog festival in Korea and the Faroe Islands is wrong and yet they eat meat are hypocrites. Solution: BECOME A VEGETARIAN! Many benefits! Anyway, some topics discussed such as sustainably and mercy levels. The sustainable argument is shit because we don't know the exact conservation status of pilot whales and some factors that can cause delays such as pollution and other factors. Whale meat contain high levels of mercury which causes severe damage to the liver and brain and the body overall. In conclusion, This slaughter is unnecessary. Most likely driven by profit and ignorance. Solution: SPREAD AWARENESS! This must come to an end! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ‘Š ~Explore. Educate.

PROTECT! โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข Bycatch. When you order fish or shrimp or anything seafood, be prepared for what comes next! Bycatch happens more often then you know it; an estimated 85% of seafood captured has some innocent creature tangle in nets. SeaTurtles, Dolphins, Sharks, Manta Rays, Etc. My one solution: BECOME A VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN! YES! Haha, although this may be hard for some of you, here are some other solutions: Don't support companies who support bycatch! I don't know any on the top of my head but do RESEARCH and see which companies do and don't support Bycatch. Also, SPREAD AWARENESS! Together we can end Bycatch and protect our beautiful marine life! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ  ~Explore. Educate. Protect!~ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ“ข๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŸ
