Happy Monday! What did you get done (or NOT get done) this weekend? I feel like I did ALL THE THINGS. ☑️ But really I just cleaned the bathroom, fed myself, and sat in front of the computer getting the Orca issue of Scoutaroo all ready for you to buy 😉 Check out Issue #1 in the Etsy shop! Link in bio ⠀ ⠀ Next on my list: make a hand-drawn card that you can print out to give to the little adventurers in your life this Christmas with their new Scoutaroo subscription! 💙

Achieving these conservation targets will require a significant increase in the rate of designation of marine protected areas in Canada." - an excerpt from An Evolution of Marine Protected Areas Globally and in Canada, from West Coast Environmental Law. “What is your vision for Canada’s oceans and coasts in 2020?” 📷: @cristinamittermeier in the waters off the coast of British Columbia. * * * @wcelaw | #oceans20 | #worldoceansmonth | #orcaawarenessmonth | #speakfornature | #climatechangeisreal
No Fish, No Blackfish. June's Orca Awareness Month was created to raise awareness about the problems facing the Southern Resident orca's. One of their biggest threats is food shortage. Southern Residents specialize on salmon, mainly Chinook salmon. Because of dammed rivers, salmon populations have gone down and so has the orca population. Chinook runs in the orca's range have been listed as endangered for over 20 years, the orca's themselves for 12 years and yet nothing has changed. If we want the SRKW's and the salmon to survive action is needed. Go to http://us.whales.org/issues/time-is-running-out-dont-let-orcas-be-dammed for more information on how you can help. Watercolor and colored pencil in Moleskine sketchbook. I used slightly surreal, fantasy colors and very few salmon as opposed to a school, because unless something changes these animals will soon be only fantasy. #orca#orcaawarenessmonth#killerwhale#southernresidentorcas#salmon#nofishnoblackfish#watercolor#moleskine#artistsoninstagram
#orcaawarenessmonth is now over, but that doesn't mean you should stop being aware of them! Continue to educate yourself and those around you about how captivity is so wrong and horrible and get these magnificent beings in a much better environment. Here's a wonderful picture of Keiko after his wonderful release. If we did it with one orca, we can release the rest!
