What I love about manta rays is that they are genuinely inquisitive. They are very social beings that, when treated with respect, will come extremely close and express interest to interact with you underwater.
However like all marine inhabitants they face ongoing challenges from human activities. In the case of manta rays fishing, ocean pollution and tourism are the main threats to their survival.
I am currently in Komodo National Park with @watermenproject and @lukaswaterman collaborating with @alice_in_waterland @queenofmantas @marinemegafauna to investigate the extent and impact of ocean plastics on manta rays.
Stay tuned for expedition updates in the next days!

Comment 🌎 if this makes you sad 😭 #savethesea #ocean #pollution #change ❤️fallow @world_zoom

Did you use a plastic bottle today? Every second, humans produce almost 20,000 plastic bottles. Given that it takes at least 450 years for one plastic bottle to degrade that’s a huge problem for the health of our planet and our people. Let's rethink our plastics footprint. Join us and be more mindful of the plastic waste you produce - reduce, reuse, recycle!

Let this story be your #inspiration 🙏

Wang Enlin, who had just three years of #education, has won the first instance in a high-profile case against state-owned Qihua Group.

The elderly man said he is determined to seek #justice for himself and his neighbours who could no longer grow healthy crops on their #contaminated land.

Mr Wang, who is in his 60s, lives in the Yushutun village on the outskirts of Qiqihar in the Heilongjiang Province.
The man said he would forever #remember the year of 2001 when his land was flooded by the #toxic waste discharged by Qihua Group.
It was the eve of the #Lunar New Year, and Mr Wang was playing cards and making dumplings with his neighbours. All of sudden, they realized that the house they were in was flooded by the wastewater from the nearby Qihua #factory.
The wastewater also flooded part of the farmland in the #village. According to the report, a government document from 2001 claimed that the affected #farmland 'can not be used for a long time' due to the #pollution.

Between 2001 to 2016, it has been suggested that Qihua continued to dump #hazardous waste into the village, whose residents rely upon agriculture for a living.

The company produced polyvinyl chloride and released 15,000 to 20,000 tons of chemical waste every year, the report said.

Qihua has also reportedly created a 71-acre wasteland with calcium carbide residue and a 478-acre pond with its liquid waste. As a result, Mr Wang decided to study #law by himself, an endeavour he would carry on pursuing for the next 16 years. #Genius

The @seabin_project has created an automatic debris catcher that collects floating debris and oil. It will work with marinas and ports to hopefully help create cleaner oceans and healthier habitats for marine life. What are your thoughts on this? 🤔 #conservation #pollution #cleanocean #savetheplanet 🙌🌊

🇨🇷 Costa Rica a pioneer in environmental sustainability. The governments in this stunning tropical landscape put the natural habitat first. They have invested heavily over the years in sustainable energy, educating their young and minimizing environmental impact when farming. Let's all take a leaf out of their book, cut back on our individual plastic use and go sustainable. Together we #CAN #climateawarenessnetwork

Joseph Gaines lives a block and a half from an Exxon Mobil refinery that processes “sour crude,” oil that contains high amounts of sulfur in Beaumont, Texas.

The process of refining the oil produces gases that can cause respiratory, neurological, cardiac, and other serious health problems. Those gasses also give the neighborhood a rotten egg odor.

The plant releases at least 135 toxic chemicals, many of which are carcinogens. And the plant is regularly in noncompliance with the Clean Air Act. Yet many of the people our reporter, Sharon Lerner, met on her recent visit said they felt there was no point in trying to reduce the emissions.

Seventeen years after an initial complaint was filed, the EPA finally issued a letter declaring the case over the refinery pollution resolved, with only small changes to be implemented.

Best ways to wash your car? On grass with an earth friendly soap like @oreillyautoparts biodegradable car wash soap. Avoid street runoff at all costs! Urban runoff is largest local ocean polluter. Remember: Your car wash and brake dust ends up in the ocean. Have any other good eco-car wash recos outside of not washing? 😂 Comment! .

🌍🌞-🇬🇧🇮🇹- #didyouknow that over 14,000 Kenyans die every year from indoor #airpollution ☹? The WHO say that this exposure can even start when babies are in the womb ☹and indoor air pollution exposure can have long term #health risks 👉 increasing likelihood of heart disease, cancer and stroke due to second-hand smoke. Please donate to @ewb_uk via ➡our bio's link ⬅ so more Kenyans 🇰🇪 can use #solarenergy 🌞 to live healthier #lifestyles and reduce the impact of 🌍 #climatechange 🌍 by avoiding #fossilfuels ☺🖒.

Sapevate che oltre 14.000 di keniani muoiono ogni anno a causa dell'inquinamento degli interni 😣? L'OMS dice che questa esposizione può anche iniziare quando i bambini sono in pancia ☹e l'esposizione all'inquinamento atmosferico interno può avere rischi sulla #salute a lungo termine 👉 aumenta la probabilità di malattie cardiache, cancro e ictus a causa del fumo passivo. Donate tramite ➡ il link in bio ⬅in modo che più Keniani 🇰🇪possano utilizzare l' energia solare 🌞 per avere stili di vita più sani e ridurre l'impatto del 🌍 #cambiamentoclimatico 🌍 evitando i combustibilifossili ☺🖒.

Le styrofoam est un véritable cancer pour #Haïti. On le trouve partout, dans les agences de coopération, dans les ONG, dans les ministères, dans les restaurants, dans les commerces de rue, dans la rue, dans les arbres, dans les ravines, dans les canaux d'irrigation, dans les palétuviers, dans la mer et dans les poissons. Joignez-vous à nous pour dire #nonaustyrofoamenhaiti en signant la pétition dans la bio.

Climate community, as people are waking up and it's finally becoming mainstream to start caring about the planet, we are going to have a lot of people looking our way for answers and instructions on what to do next. It's down to us to communicate efficiently and properly in a way that's relatable and understandable. We've all made mistakes in the past, whereby passion and urge to care for the planet unsettles us. But we must learn and grow from these mistakes and understand we are only human. We must scrub up on our knowledge of the facts, and prepare to help as many people as possible no matter what excuses and arguments are thrown against us. All for the greater good. 🌎 Together we #CAN

So grateful for the clear blue skies in Vancouver now. Never been so happy for rain!

This "whale" is made from the same amount of plastics that entered the ocean every second. Be an #oceanhero and say no to single-use plastics! photo credit: @cherryduckstudios #plasticfree#plasticpollution#pollution#ocean#london

Les Parisiens sont partis et le trafic routier est au ralenti grace à la mairie de Paris 👉 Moins d'oxyde d'azote, moins de P.Fines : pm10 et pm2,5 Les plus nocives, moins d'ozone 🤗. Le vélo et @velib c'est the best #urbanmobility . Les alvéoles pulmonaires, la peau, la sphère ORL sont moins encrassés 👉Moins d'asthme, moins accidents, moins de bronchiolites et moins d'insuffisance respiratoires... On veut que cela dure ! ! #pollution #mairiedeparis #velib @annehidalgo Soit dit en passant Airparif fait un travail excellent sur les données de pollution dûe au traffic routier, industries.
