There is seconds of our life’s that will remain with us for ever. Not even sure how long it lasted as it felt like time stopped. . Fue muy emocionante cuando me miro y nado directo hacia mi. . It takes one look at the whales eye to see the wisdom that comes with millions of years of evolution. . Hard to imagine all the things that eye looked at before looking at me. We know pretty much nothing about whales, or the ocean. . Photo by karimiliya while in Tonga with dancewithwhales and dolphinpacific . #stopicelandwhaling
Please consider investing in my book, Trevor’s Eco Adventures, The Ocean Calls, available on Amazon. It’s high time to empower a lot of kid's and their parents to care for our ocean and sea creatures. Our sisters and brothers of the sea. Thank you. Endorsed by Dr. Sylvia Earle, bless her heart! It takes a village. It all starts when someone catches the spark to care. ✨ Please like Trevor Cares FB page. facebook.com/trevor-cares trevorstroopers.com __ #uselessplastic #lessoceanplastic #UnderWater #Diving #ScubaDiving #SharkWeek #Animals #Wild #Wildlife #Nature #Travel #Vacation #WildlifeConservation #Splendid_animals #StopTheSingleUseOfPlastic #StopIcelandWhaling #WildlifePhotograpy #Animation #Disney #Endangered #WildlifeAddicts #2MinuteBeachCleanUp #PlasticWaste #NoToPlastics #Sealife #SaveTheSea
"We Are Miniscule Next To Them" - But they never retaliate or cause us pain inspite of the evil we inflict upon them. This beautiful moment courtesy of South African Freediver, Freediving Instructor and Trainer, Ocean Conservationist, Underwater Photographer and Videographer, Ben Wiid @two_oceans_one_breath - Nothing will prepare you for a moment like this. Pure insignificance, pure bliss.🐋💦❤️ - Whaling is the hunting of whales for their usable products like meat, oil and blubber. Its earliest forms date to at least circa 3000 BC. Coastal communities around the world have long histories of subsistence whaling and harvesting beached whales. Industrial whaling emerged with organized fleets in the 17th century; competitive national whaling industries in the 18th and 19th centuries; and the introduction of factory ships along with the concept of whale harvesting in the first half of the 20th century. By the late 1930s more than 50,000 whales were killed annually. In 1986, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) banned commercial whaling because of the extreme depletion of most of the whale stocks. Contemporary whaling is subject to intense debate. Countries that support commercial whaling, notably Iceland, Japan, and Norway, wish to lift the ban on certain whale stocks for hunting. Anti-whaling countries and environmental groups oppose lifting the ban. Under the terms of the IWC moratorium, aboriginal whaling is allowed to continue on a subsistence basis. Over the past few decades, whale watching has become a significant industry in many parts of the world; in some countries it has replaced whaling, but in a few others, the two business models exist in an uneasy tension. - #Conservation #Education #Research #OceanOptimism #Whales #Cetaceans #Mammals #SaveOurWhales #StopJapanWhaling #StopIcelandWhaling

- A baby fur seal uses a Trypot to avoid the stampede of adult fur seals on South Georgia, Antarctica. The irony is that these very pots were used to boil the fat off of elephant seals less than a hundred years ago. In fact, just 62 years ago, 6000 elephant seals were killed, rendering 2011 tons of oil. If you are ever about to give up hope with the state of the planet then please don’t as many things are improving. Just a hundred years ago, hundreds of thousands of blue and finback whales were killed for products to be consumed by humans. Fur seals were nearly wiped out for their fur. Elephant seals were nearly wiped out for their body fat. Since the killing stopped, fur seals have rebounded to historic numbers. Elephant seals are rebounding quickly. Sadly, blue whales and fin whales have not. In fact, countries like Iceland, Norway and Japan continue to whale. This is where the next fight is. Please join us on @sealegacy to lend your voice, your pen and your dollars to prevent us from reverting back to our barbaric ways. We must win this one together.

"Fate once crossed me with these gentle giants one rainy evening off Azores, Portugal. The simple power of their presence immediately changed me in inexplicable ways. I’m so grateful for that moment. // Whales are beloved and respected by so many people and yet mercilessly butchered by so few, and those few are going to whip the magic carpet right out from under this planet if we don’t speak up. Please help us #stopicelandwhaling and add your name to the 200k people who stand with me on the petition in the bio. @sealegacy legacy #stopthehunt @bluespherefoundation @waittfoundation "⠀ .⠀ >>Photo and words from Inkwell Network Member @andy_mann
Good morning sustainability fans. I made the seagulls talk, because they mistake #plastic for real food as well as the other sea creatures. I thought I would bring to light a huge problem of our throwaway society. These are the single-use dental cleaning tools that are made. I venture to say that millions hit the ground a day entering into our streams, rivers and finally to our #ocean . Wear a pair of gloves, if you pick these up - you’ll make a huge difference for our sea creatures. __ #lessplastic #uselessplastic #lessoceanplastic #UnderWater #Diving #ScubaDiving #SharkWeek #Animals #Wild #Wildlife #Nature #Travel #Vacation #WildlifeConservation #Splendid_animals #StopTheSingleUseOfPlastic #StopIcelandWhaling #WildlifePhotograpy #Animation #Disney #Endangered #WildlifeAddicts #2MinuteBeachCleanUp #PlasticWaste #NoToPlastics #Sealife #SaveTheSea
I've arrived in Iceland and begun filming for my new project! Today I interviewed Ole Bieltvedt, the founder of environmental charity Jarðarvinir, which means 'Friends of the Earth.' Earlier this year he took legal action against whaling company Hvalur for killing a hybrid blue/fin whale - the results of these charges are still being decided. 'Whales are emotional, intelligent and sensitive beings - like humans, they too feel grief at the loss of one of their own'. . . . #whaling #iceland #elding #meetusdonteatus #stopicelandwhaling #stopwhaling #hvalur #icewhale

It's Saturday, have you hugged your #ocean today? You know, you can if you'll pick up the #plastic you see during your day. You'll play a role to save some sea critters from eating it as food. Plus, you can get my book on Amazon to empower your kids to care about our only ocean and sea creatures. Go visit Amazon to invest in my book, Trevor's Eco Adventures, The Ocean Calls. Note, this is me, I brought and set up my albatross bird made of plastic I found on the ground. 🦅 _ #lessplastic #uselessplastic #lessoceanplastic #UnderWater #Diving #ScubaDiving #SharkWeek #Animals #Wild #Wildlife #Nature #Travel #Vacation #WildlifeConservation #Splendid_animals #StopTheSingleUseOfPlastic #StopIcelandWhaling #WildlifePhotograpy #Animation #Disney #Endangered #WildlifeAddicts #2MinuteBeachCleanUp #PlasticWaste #NoToPlastics #Sealife #SaveTheSea

High five my friend 👏⠀ "Whales are at the top of the food chain and have an important role in the overall health of the marine environment. Unfortunately their large size and mythical aura does not protect them; six out of the 13 great whale species are classified as endangered, even after decades of protection."

Using their immense and powerful tails they can cross oceans, they can launch their bodies fully into the air, and they can fend off predators. But they can’t outrun the mechanical harpoons of men, driven by greed and ego, hellbent in mercilessly destroying their kind. 😢🐳😢 #stopicelandwhaling #stopthehunt #worthmorealive @sea_legacy @bluespherefoundation Follow us for more @the_oceanvibe 💙🐋
In Iceland we have a rich SOB who keeps on hunting whales, even if there's a slim chance of any profit. Aided by the inactive government and a certain corrupt political party, his company kills on. . #stopicelandwhaling #whaling #stopwhaling #whales #iceland #naturelost #iceland 🇮🇸
Whaling is one of the most destructive and inhumane activities in our oceans today. Commercial Whaling is only present in non-IWC (International Whaling Commision) countries and those opposing the pause on whaling. The IWC regulates whaling, and whaling has been in large part, in a pause since 1986. Due to the way whales are hunted, whaling is not humane. According to the Animal Welfare Institute, even the most advanced methods of whaling are unable to guarantee instant death and lack of pain. Harpoons are aimed at the brain and lungs, but since whales are only at the surface for a second, the harpoon hits actually the target only a fraction of the time. Most times, it lands on other parts of the body, causing a death from trauma or blood loss. Harpoons are equipped with penthrite grenades that penetrate a foot into the body, exploding and releasing into the whale. If the whale doesn’t die instantaneously, a second harpoon or gun is used to attempt to kill it. Whales are then hauled with a line to the ship, and those who are not yet killed or stunned are in excruciating pain. The line will occasionally break, leaving the whale to sink and die from its wounds.
