MOST RECENT

I have recently been learning more and more about the effect I have on this planet 🌎 and how to make it a positive one. When we go to the beach here in Hawaii (or anywhere else), we always find SO MUCH plastic👎. I am loving that there is so much focus on eliminating single use plastic bags, straws, cups, etc. BUT did you know that an even bigger piece of the plastic puzzle in our oceans is abandoned fishing nets?!😔

So yes, do your part by BYOBottles, cups, straws, and bags as much as possible. But if you really want to take it a step further, stop supporting the fishing industry by not eating seafood🐟. Your oceans, fish friends, and your body will thank you.🙏 #bethechange #cleanyobeach #plasticfreejuly @plasticfreejuly .

Maldives it’s an incredible place, but behind the blue water and white sand you can find lots of rubbish all over the islands and lots of dead reef.
Its a very concerning problem and not many people knows about it. It’s a Muslim Country and is really hard for girls to come up with ideas and change something. .
I am so proud of our saltysister @saltysun_💕
She just launched the first fully sustainable surfing program Soneva Surf comes Salt - a movie exploring the relatively unknown history and culture of surfing in the Maldives 🇲🇻, by those that live and breath the Indian Ocean 🌊
This movie will make the world realize the Maldives is more than sun, sea, sand and resorts that most think of it to be.
Full moving coming soon. We are excited 😁

“When I arrived to the Maldives I was chocked when I found out the number of people who couldn’t swim.
Which meant the number of surfers was even lower. Surfing still a relatively new sport compared to the rest of the world. There are many talented people here, but only about a hand full of female surfers. .
With the help of the wonder woman @alisonadventures we visited Goidhoo for a beach clean up followed by a surfing session dedicated for the ladies. Seeing them catching their first waves was such a heartwarming experience and the sensation was everlasting. .
Maldives is a beautiful country made up of thousands of islands with a whole other life just beyond the land and below the surface. We hope to encourage, support, and inspire the local community to spend more time in the water, build a connection with the sea, and ultimately take care of their ocean home.”

Did you know that Americans go through 500 million straws everyday? CRAZY!
FACT: plastic straws (and other plastics) can take centuries to decompose...if they ever do & straws harm and kill marine life and seabirds.

One piece of plastic at a time and education together we will make a difference along with wonderful non profits like @healthebay @plasticoceans @surfrider @surfhappensfoundation @oceana @take3forthesea @5gyres And many many others🙏💙 it makes our hearts smile as it seems like everyday in the US and around the world they are banning straws.

We will have boxes that will educate and give back to these organizations. Stay tuned for what fun ocean themed goodies will be in there.

Next up we have Jennifer Brustad, aka Bru, Booboo, Bruhaha, and occasionally Jenn. Bru came to us as a volunteer with a passion for wildlife and conservation. After losing her sense of smell, she joined the Animal Care staff at the end of 2017 when a position opened up and she says it was one of the best days of her life. “I have learned so much in the short time I have been here and am ecstatic to learn and do more as I become more confident and capable.” She was recently awarded responsibility of the sanctuary’s population of nonvenomous snakes. “Snakes are one of my favorite kinds of creatures and I’m humbled to be given the opportunity to be the primary care giver for our permanent resident nonven serpents.” Bru has always been more of an animal person than a people person and she feels right at home in the snake house. She is incapable of picking an all-time favorite animal, and getting through most doors, but her favorite animal at the sanctuary is Beau the Brown Boobie. #buschwildlifesanctuary #jupiterflorida #jupiter#florida #zookeeper #zookeeperlife #NZKW2018 #IMAkeeper #teamkeeper #thepalmbeaches

Happy #WildlifeWednesday! Osprey use a variety of materials to build their nests such as stick, bark, vines, algae, etc. Because plastic items are found more commonly where they find these materials and are often difficult to distinguish, researchers have found an increase of plastic materials ending up in Osprey nests over the years. Trash like ribbon or string can harm the bird's wing or legs and single use bags can smother/choke them. Osprey are highly common in NJ, especially along the coast/marshes. Come join Baykeeper on one of our summer on-the-water events and see if you can spot an Osprey for yourself! And remember if you go to the beach to clean up your plastic waste! #KeepOurWatersClean #KeepOurWildlifeSafe #PandionHaliaetus #Osprey #NJWildlife #ConserveWildlife #ReducePlastic #SayNotToPlastic #KeepOurBeachesClean #ExploreTheShore #ProtectPreserveRestore #Baykeeper

Ooooh~ here’s my studio mate @basia_gosz coming back after an eco art bomb— artist and activists made a giant black snake on the beach to bring awareness to this stupid expensive pipeline in our nyc beaches!!! 🙅🏻‍♀️Wtf: Williams Co. is proposing to build a 23-mile long pipeline that will carry fracked gas under New York harbor. The pipeline would run along the coast of Staten Island then cross the harbor south of Brooklyn to join existing pipelines four miles off the Rockaways. 📲ACTION: Call Governor Cuomo at 888-997-5380 and tell him to block the Williams Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) Pipeline.
