Repost @pelagic_life_ Sad find on the beach in Bermuda. Small islands like my home are disproportionately impacted by overfishing, oil spills, global warming, and plastic pollution - and we’re 600+ miles from the nearest land mass. 😢 #goatmentality #ilovesharks #oceanconservation #protectwhatyoulove #beachcleanup #islandlife #lesswaste #oceanoptimism #nobluenogreen

Here’s my haul from today! The weather was warm, I found some agates and I had the whole beach to myself almost the whole time 🙌🏽 Beach success! •

I’ve been very pleased at the small amount of trash at Agate beach. When i first started trash picking there it was absurd, now I’m lucky to find a bag full 😁 •

Remember: trash picking is easy and can be turned into a fun activity! I’ll usually turn on a podcast or blast some tunes to power through some serious picking. Anyone have any good podcast suggestions? 🤗 #togetherwemakeadifference

🔵Maestro's Notes: Starting off a hectic day with yet another beautiful interaction filmed on location off the Coast of San Diego, California courtesy of Passionate Cetacean Conservationist, Landscape and Aerial Photographer and Videographer, Domenic Biagini @dolphindronedom - Can you even imagine experiencing something like this? Would you be afraid or excited? I hope you would be filled with joy as there is nothing to fear from these beautiful animals as people. I can still hear the exhalation from these majestic creatures being all around me. It makes for the most beautiful dreams...

Killer whales are found in all the world's oceans. They are arguably the most popular and closely-watched whales in the world. Those living along North America are the best studied, with those living around Washington state and British Columbia having been closely monitored for more than 30 years. Populations of killer whales are healthy and stable but counting them is difficult. However, the Southern Resident Killer Whales of British Columbia are on a decline. There are believed to be 30,000 to 80,000 of them worldwide. The populations of some of the prey that killer whales feed one is not so stable. In some places the numbers of salmon and seals that they feed on have dramatically declined.

Killer whales sleep five to eight hours a day, either drifting on the surface, where they can breath, or taking in lungs full of oxygen, and diving to the seabed and settling down there. Killer whales are frequently observed breaching (leaping out of the water), slapping their flippers on the water, spy-hopping (lifting their heads and front flippers out of the water and looking around), doing side rolls, and lobtailing (lifting their flukes high and whacking them down hard on the water). Spyhopping is fairly common. Killer whales do it survey their surroundings. They often do it when tourist boats approach so they can get a look at the boat and see who is on it. And this is what they are doing in this beautiful moment.

Typically found nestled against the reef, the flathead crocodilefish is incredibly well camouflaged and closely related to scorpionfish.

Neste Natal, seja um Voluntário pelo Mar!
.
Os estuários são grandes transportadores de lixo para o oceano e por isso todos os meses, desde Março de 2016, limpamos com voluntários o estuário do Sado. Com a sua ajuda retirámos 47 toneladas de resíduos. .
Venha também fazer parte desta ação da campanha Mariscar SEM Lixo. Esta campanha responde ao problema global do plástico no oceano e procura acabar com o habito dos mariscadores do lingueirão em deixar as embalagens de plástico de sal no estuário. .
Horário: 9h00 - 13h45

When the rare Coleman’s Shrimp (Periclimenes colemani) appear in the Pacific. These little critters live on fire urchins, which themselves are beautiful, but add in a pair of these guys and it is a pretty awesome sight. ————————————————————————————————————

While combing the beach I came across this sad state of affairs. The irony of the find is in other parts of the 🌎 the fins would have been the only thing salvaged from this 🦈. A few yards away from the shark was an underdeveloped baby 🦈😢. Small islands like the one I live on are prone to threats to our oceans. Depleting fish stocks, oil spills, global warming, plastics etc. impact us the most. We’re over 600 miles from the nearest land mass. Pollution travels that distance plus and ends up on our shores. In light of these threats, I must confess that the greatest threat to our small island, is not protecting our own environment e.g. straws, plastics, 🎈, invasive species, ♻️🌱. #ilovesharks #sustainableliving #oceanconservation #protectwhatyoulove #beachcleanup #naturelover #ecofriendly #islandlife #lesswaste #oceanoptimism #nobluenogreen #overfishing #geography #saveourseas #atlanticocean

Our oceans and beaches support more than the aquatic life that inhabits the water. Seabirds like these cuties depend on the ecosystem for their own survival, and in turn contribute to other terrestrial life cycles and beyond. With everything in such perfect balance, why disrupt with needless pollution and waste? 🤔 RE.BIN is dedicated to supporting conservation and sustainability worldwide!

This species of sharks are known for the silky look of its skin; tends to be long in size and slender. While they don’t pose a threat to humans, according to IUCN, the silky shark is vulnerable to over-fishing due to its long gestation period, low number of offspring and slow growth rate.

Fears r made in sitting..Nd overcame in action..! #oceanoptimism #learningtosurf #mumbaioceanview #latenightthoughts #blacklove 🔥📽🌌

Esta es la aportación de la artista @xavieraaltena desde Rotterdam para nuestra campaña #artistsagainstplastics 💙 Xaviera acompaña la ilustración con el siguiente texto: “Este año, cuando estaba nadando en Thassos, Grecia, encontré una gran cantidad de plástico en el mar y en las playas. Mi amigo y yo comenzamos a recogerlo, y era una cantidad ridícula de basura y plástico. Nos sorprendió. Thassos se suponía que sería una escapada hermosa, después de aquello también continuamos recolectando plástico en las playas holandesas. Me sorprende lo que encuentras por ahí. Si todas las personas pudieran gestionar su basura mejor, este mundo podría ser un mundo mejor”. #byebyestraws #stopsucking #moreturtleslessplastic #skipthestraw #ocean #savetheocean #plasticocean #savetheturtles #beachcleanup #plasticwaste #plasticpollution #sealife #refusesingleuse #plasticfreeoceans #protectwhatyoulove #nobluenogreen #saveourseas #oceanconservation #oceanoptimism #marineconservation #marinedebris #art #illustration #drawing #artistsagainstplastics #plasticbag #seaturtle

Replacing a tea bag with a tea filter is one of the easiest zero waste switches I have made so far. Both the nylon pyramid bags and the mixture of which some paper tea bags are made contain plastic. This causes plastic to end up in the environment and possibly also in your body, probably without you being aware of it. Thereby, fresh tea in a tea filter tastes so much better than tea in a tea bag! ☕️ #bethechange #hzwp #hetzerowasteproject #zerowaste #plasticfree #noplastic #nowaste #plasticvrij #bethechange #lowwaste #oceanoptimism #plasticsoup #terschelling #motivation #zerowastelife #cleanourseas #plasticpollution #denhaag #oceanplastic #zerowastehome #lowimpact #eilandliefde #wastefree #refuse #reduce #reuse #recycle #rot #zerowastecollective

🔵Maestro's Notes: I'm sure many of you are aware how versatile and intelligent octupuses are. And for the benefit of those who havent seen this video yet, this is a perfect example of their uncanny ability to solve problems such as opening this glass jar. NOTE: This octopus wasnt harmed in this demonstration, this was just done to show their problem solving skills. This video was posted courtesy of our friends at Ocean Diary @ocean.diary

Octopuses are highly intelligent; the extent of their intelligence and learning capability are not well defined. Maze and problem-solving experiments have shown evidence of a memory system that can store both short- and long-term memory. It is not known precisely what contribution learning makes to adult octopus behaviour. Young octopuses learn nothing from their parents, as adults provide no parental care beyond tending to their eggs until the young octopuses hatch.

In laboratory experiments, octopuses can be readily trained to distinguish between different shapes and patterns. They have been reported to practise observational learning, although the validity of these findings is contested. Octopuses have also been observed in what has been described as play: repeatedly releasing bottles or toys into a circular current in their aquariums and then catching them. Octopuses often break out of their aquariums and sometimes into others in search of food. They have even boarded fishing boats and opened holds to eat crabs. The veined octopus collects discarded coconut shells, then uses them to build a shelter, an example of tool use.

Due to their intelligence, octopuses are listed in some countries as experimental animals on which surgery may not be performed without anesthesia, a protection usually extended only to vertebrates. In the UK from 1993 to 2012, the common octopus (Octopus vulgaris) was the only invertebrate protected under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986. In 2012, this legislation was extended to include all cephalopods in accordance with a general EU directive.
