Here on Scilly we have to contend with a lot of Marine Debris; it's one of the "perks" to living on an Island.
.
After today's big seas we've got a lot of flotsam and jetsam washing ashore.
.
So far in 2017 @scillywildlife's organised beachcleans have removed just under TWO TONS of Marine Debris from the coastline of Scilly; with an estimated 75% of this being plastic and a high proportion of that being single use plastic.
.
Everyone can do their bit to help keep our Islands beautiful. Either by saying no to single use plastic, recycling, supporting @scillywildlife with our beachcleans or donations to allow us to continue what we do.

ALERT: Nets and ropes washing up across the state in alarming levels. If you attempt to remove them, please be careful. Pull debris up to highest point you can so it doesn’t get pulled back into the ocean. Take to nearest City or State trash can. Either they or us, or one of the many other orgs working in this arena will dispose of properly. These are remnants of commercial fishing gear and sometimes are thrown overboard on purpose as fish aggregating devices. #adlfg #ghostnets #fishaggregatingdevice #plasticpollution #nylon #marinedebris #himarinedebris

➖Shout-out to all the litter pickers removing pollution from Mother Nature and creating art with it. Y'all are the bomb!💣
➖It takes about 5 bags of assorted litter for me to create an image like this. You gotta pick up a lot of trash to have enough of the pretty stuff to work with.💚
➖This is what happens before I even begin to create:
~First you must sort through it all. Separating the recyclables, soft plastics, usable plastics, and gross items- then dispose of accordingly.🗑♻️
~Next up is the washing process. It's kinda gross. Scrub a dub dub, dirty plastics in a tub.💦
~Then they are spread out to dry. Another sorting process may take place once dry, and into storage they go, waiting until there is enough to create a bit of art.🎨
➖So the next time you see an image like this, remember what goes into it. A lot of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears. I've shed both blood and tears while beach cleaning. Cuts, bumps, and bruises are part of the deal, but the tears came from the sights I've seen.💔
➖I'm not searching for compliments or boasting about the work I do. This is to clear up any confusion about what happens behind the scenes. Now go show your fav trash artists some love!❤️

Gillnets, crab pots and crab traps are among many discarded #marinedebris and fishing gear that continue to "ghost fish" - entrapping marine animals such as whales, seals, sea lions, turtles and sharks. There were 61 recorded whale #entanglements off the U.S West Coast in 2015 alone (NOAA Fisheries). To mitigate the issue, the California Governor last year signed The Whale Protection & Crab Gear Retrieval Act into law which is designed to "reduce the number of whales caught caught in fishing gear by creating financial incentives for the state's #Dungeness and #Rock crab fishermen to collect any abandoned gear they find during the offseason" (SB1287). Previously, it was unlawful to remove any gear that belonged to another person. It is estimated that 40,000 Dungeness crab pots may be lost every year between California and the Canadian border (Department of Fish & Wildlife). When a whale, shark or turtle becomes entangled in abandoned fishing gear, the weight causes the animal to become exhausted, often leading to drowning or suffocation. If not immediately, the impeding debris can stop an animal from feeding, amputate tails/fins and will cut into the flesh over extended periods of time. Each year around the globe over 640,000 tons of fishing gear is lost in the ocean (E. Hogan, World Animal Protection 2016) having devastating impacts on the environment. This legislation is an important step in the right direction to #cleaningupouroceans with fishermen, community and government working together. Washington and Oregon also have postseason recovery programs in place and influential groups like @SeafoodWatch, that take ghost gear into account when rating a fishery if there's strong evidence that it's a problem, providing further financial incentives to remove abandoned gear from the water.

Piper the Schnauzer was one of the volunteers at the weekends beach cleanup for Clean Up WA at Nanarup Beach Albany WA, along with 20 volunteers plus 3 dogs who covered most of the beach and inlet.
At last it seemed that after a long wet end to winter the first weekend of sun finally came. After local flooding the inlet had broken then silted up again so there were some unusual items such as netting, twine and packing tape not normally found on the beach. A large blue plastic drum had been swept up and one of the volunteers picked it up with their 4wd.
The beach was busy and Fisheries officers were out patrolling on ATV's to check that fisherman were keeping to the bag limits.
In the BBQ area lots of bread bag clips and cigarette butts were found which is always the case. These bread clips turn up everywhere and easily mistaken by seabirds as food, with a little bit of thought and better design this item could be changed to a safer option. Shearwaters are severely impacted by plastic pollution with a 100% found to have plastic in their stomachs. .

Great afternoon for the Oceans - Thank you Sea Shepherd Albany

Good morning! The new work is now live on my site. It has been in the works for a year, now possible due to winning the FedEx small business grant. You all directly helped this work come to life by being so supportive and voting for this little business. Thank you! I also have to say I have a huge volume of orders coming in, so orders placed right now will take around 10 days to ship. I'm filling orders as fast as humanly possible. I'm looking to hire an octopus, so if you know any looking for work and have a metalsmithing background please put us in touch.

We are so excited to be sharing highlights from our Oceanic x Ibiza panel series with you. Through sharing knowledge, we discover actions and solutions that we can all incorporate into our daily lives to start to becoming more responsible consumers. Tune in as our amazing speakers dive into topics including: traceability and transparency in the fishing and seafood industries, Marine Plastic Pollution and local issues currently facing Ibiza’s ocean. Head over to our Vimeo page (Link in bio☝🏼) to watch the whole film now! #OURCHOICESMATTER

Show us your bag!
🌍
DAY 2 of #NoPlasticWorld is bring your own bag to the store or go bag less! Show and tell us how you put your bag to good use! When I'm camping and traveling I like to utilize my reusable bags to sort different dry goods, cooking items and even warm clothes. It keeps things organized and in a pinch I can empty it out and take it to the store.
🌟

Today I spoke about marine debris at work. Nervous beyond words but the mission must be spread. We must clean the oceans and the ones to do it are we.
The ocean gives us all we need, from nutrition to relaxation.
Now it is payback time 💪🏽🙏🏼❤️

Always love seeing these tiny toes in @salthippy cleanups! 🌺 tiny beach heroes lead to grown up beach heroes! Thank you!! 🌊♻️

Thank you @sfweekly for donating ad space to help spread awareness that 🚬 butts are plastic, toxic trash. Keep your eyes open for ashcans, (cigarette bins), pictured in the photo above, and encourage people to toss their butts in these cans. Our volunteers with @holdontoyourbutt_la empty these cans and ship the butts off to @terracycle where they can be recycled into everyday items! Your donations help fund these bins and programs. Consider donating or becoming a member today and help us keep #buttsoffthebeach @holdontoyourbutt_la @holdontoyourbutt
