Spot on. #Repost @rachaellwhelan // Alrightyyyyyy so since being in the Philippines we’ve come to notice how much plastic is covering the beaches and decided to dedicate time to cleaning its oceans, beaches and land. Since doing this, it’s become pretty obvious that single use plastics seem to be the most reoccurring rubbish found on and IN the beaches. This includes chip wrappers, lollie wrappers, straws, plastic bags and more. Plastic that doesn’t need to be used IS being used and is creating a harmful impact on our earth. The most beautiful pristine beaches in the Philippines are victims of single use plastic waste. By collecting rubbish on the beaches, we aim to raise awareness of the impacts of single use plastic so together we can start creating a much needed change. πŸ€— sooooo easy and effective ways to start helping out is simply just staying conscious of your single plastic usage, say no to straws and start trying to limit your plastic use as best you can. also, check out @adventurebagcrew for some ideas on how to get started and more tips on what you can do to help. We live in such a beautiful world, so by doing our bit we can stop it from spoiling anymore🌈🌈🌈 #musttravelph #plasticfree #nostraws #savetheocean #savesharks #noplastic #metalstraw #adventurebagcrew #helptheplanet #zeroplastic #awastefreeworld . . .

Incredible and inspiring work by #OneOceanGlobalAmbassador @ryleebrooke_official . We are so proud of you! In the coming days they will have a Bill number, and it's up to US to write our testimonies in support of this Bill becoming a law and attending public hearings on it. We'll keep you posted on its progress and important dates! #repost @ryleebrooke_official // Exciting news!!! The Promise to our Keiki proposal is currently being drafted into a bill! We will need all the support we can get to turn this into a law. The bill currently proposes 3 things to be mandated by law: 1. Every incoming flight to Hawaii be required to play an educational PSA video that teaches about Hawaii's ENDANGERED and ENDEMIC WILDLIFE and LAWS pertaining to them, OCEAN CONSERVATION, RESPECTING OUR AINA and CULTURAL SITES, and SAFETY 2. Educational cards regarding these topics be placed in the seatbacks of all incoming flights 3. All visitors sign the Promise to Our Keiki Pledge with Hawaii's declaration forms upon arrival to Hawaii. . . Want to learn more & find ways you can become an #oceanconservationist ?

A healthy, realistic perspective on the journey to living a more conservation-minded lifestyle. Thank you for writing this, @kennaaloha ! #Repost // . . I’ve countlessly witnessed, swam with, stepped over, and picked up the excessive amounts of plastic debris that suffocates our planet. And the more I do so, the more I grasp how drastic this plastic problem really is. β € β € But ironically: I still use plastic; β € β € probably much less than the average person, but I’m still often led to feeling guilty for the amount of plastic I still use in my day-to-day life. β € β € So, I wanted to remind myself (and some of you) that YES we need to keep growing, YES we need to become more connected to the effects of our actions, & YES we need to consume less and more responsibly, but as we’re actively doing that, let’s not forget that it’s a journeyβ€”a journey where mistakes and a bit of time are inevitable. With the motivation and passion that we have for protecting the planet, we’ll get there 😊🌎 And in the meantime, we’ll challenge ourselves to do better and growβ€”as well as inspire our peers along the way to grow with us πŸ’™ And looking at it that way: let’s learn to be a bit more patient with ourselves as we work to improve πŸ€—. . .

Don't look now but we think 2018 has nearly come and gone! This year brought environmental successes for coral reef ecosystems, and we have high hopes that they keep on coming as more and more cities, states, and countries push to become #ReefFriendly . β€’ For the sake of sharks, corals, and all other oceanic life, we encourage you to ring in the new year the #ReefFriendly way: by opting for safe, mineral sunscreens like the ones from our friends at @allgoodbrand. β€’ (Psst! Use code ALLONEOCEAN for 20% off #ReefFriendly sunscreens... head to @allgoodbrand 's bio link to shop.)

Do you know what is in your products? Being a conscious consumer is one of the best ways to support marine conservation!! Check out this great info #repost from Global Ambassador @oceanic.grace πŸ™πŸΌβ€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Did you know sharks can sense the heart beat of their prey up to 100 meters away? The ampullae of Lorenzini is a specialized sensory organ that allows them to detect electrical potentials generated by muscle contractions. β€” Sad statistic but about 100 MILLION sharks are killed each year! At this rate the populations cannot sustain themselves and are in danger of disappearing🦈 ✨ A few simple ways you can help RIGHT NOW as a consumer: β€’1) ladies look in your cosmetics, squalene comes from shark and is secretly hidden in many items. β€’2) read the ingredients of your dog’s food. Shark is NOT healthy for us or our fur friends, but big companies hide it is as flake, huss, rock salmon, and dogfish to name a few. β€’ 3) support sustainable fisheries (sharks are often caught as bycatch) β€’4) don’t eat shark fin soup or support restaurants that serve it (it is a tasteless and frankly unhealthy dish that only shows status) β€” To sum it up sharks are pretty important and are being exploited to the point of endangering their species. So let’s join together and change that βœ¨πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™ . . Want to learn more & find ways you can become an #oceanconservationist ? Visit freedivewithsharks.com > conservation.

How great is science!! Awesome information reposted from @oneoceanresearch πŸ’™πŸŒ and we love whale sharks !! β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Researchers have, for the first time, successfully completed an ultrasound on free-swimming #whalesharks (Rhincodon typus) in the #Galapagos Islands! Despite whale sharks being the largest fish in the sea, and despite that tagging and tracking initiatives for whale sharks have increased within the past decade, we really don’t know much about the reproduction of these animals (Stevens, 2007), and so a team of ambitious global whale shark experts set out to learn more. The team conducted the scans using an ultrasound system concealed in waterproof case and used a propeller system attached to their air-tanks in order to keep up with the swimming sharks. Through their ultrasound scans, the team was able to confirm that follicles in the ovaries were present, but none of the scans found any embryos or egg capsulesΒ Β inside the whale sharks’ uterus. They suspected that the adult female sharks at Darwin Island may have been traveling further offshore to mate. With the success of the ultrasound scans, the team is confident that they can judge the sexual maturity of individuals and determine any existing pregnancies using this new underwater ultrasound system. Considering this species is listed as vulnerable by the IUCN, often targeted for their meat and fins, along with being victims of by-catch (Brooks, 2012.) it’s even more important to learn more about these animals as we work to preserve and protect the remaining whale shark populations. #savesharks #savetheocean #sharkbiology β€’ Photo by @forrest.in.focus Post by @kennaaloha . .

Super informative #repost from Global Ambassador @harpseal111 !! As a consumer this festive season, try to make conscious choices for our big blue planet πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŒπŸ’™ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” It is estimated that America uses 500 MILLION plastic straws DAILY. In the ocean, straws begin to break down into smaller micro-plastics but they never fully biodegrade. That means these smaller plastics will remain in our oceans for centuries & we have recently seen them starting to turn up in our fish, water, & salt. How can you help? Buy a reusable straw, use paper straws, or just go strawless πŸ₯€NOW, everybody knows that #StrawsSuck thanks to recent plastic straw bans BUT did you know that they only account for .03% of plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? What is the bigger threat in ocean pollution? FISHING GEAR 🐟 Abandoned fishing gear, also known as ghost nets, account for 46% of ocean pollution in the GPGP. Each year about 700,000 tons of ghost gear builds up in our oceans. These nets are extremely detrimental to our oceans bc they continue to trap, entangle, & kill marine life. These nets can also drift to coastal areas where they smother reefs & kill live coral β€’β€’ How can we help with this problem? Well, ghost gear can’t really be fixed the same way plastic straws can & that’s why it’s more frustrating. One way to help prevent ghost gear is to cut back on consuming fish. If we cut down on the demand then we cut down on the chances of this gear ending up abandoned πŸ€™πŸΌ You can also donate & support projects for divers cleaning up ghost nets. Some companies have even started to make clothes & swimsuits out of ghost nets! We are working hard to see a change & that change starts with each one of us #bethechange πŸ’› β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” . . .

Every little piece counts. Don’t forget, any item of rubbish/plastic big or small that YOU pick up, is one less piece making its way to the ocean. #savetheocean #Repost OneOcean Global Ambassador @liv_ocean MAHALO LIV πŸ™πŸΌ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Big smiles after pulling 30 POUNDS of trash off the beach with the @seattleaquarium ‼️ I spent an hour and a half digging up the fishing rope you see in the picture - about four feet stuck in packed dirt, rocks, and clay three feet in the ground. Plastics and trash are much more dangerous and prominent than what meets the eye. Microplastics are the most dangerous of any. Almost invisible to the eye, and making their way up the food chain, the tiny pieces of trash can kill the largest of the creatures in the ocean. Beach cleanups are necessary for keeping our beaches and oceans safe. πŸ’š If you see any trash on a beach, PLEASE pick it up! We can keep our beaches safe and clean if we all work together to help them. πŸ™πŸΌ This was my first beach clean up ever (shocker, I know!) and it was amazing!
