Plastic garbage is a whale of a problem. 😔🐋💙
This incredible life-size art installation was made almost entirely out of rubbish shaped into a decaying blue whale. It was constructed by Phillipines Greenpeace and is a grim reminder of what we are doing to this planet..
EVERYBODY has the power to HELP, say no to plastics. Recycle, clean up your beaches, don’t litter.. all rather simple steps that can help shape the future 💙

this whole micro plastic thing is pretty scary. according to Scientific American 83% of the drinking water samples around the world were contaminated with microscopic pieces of plastic. Lately i am trying harder to pay more attention to what i buy and reduce single use plastic packaging.

People are yet to understand the severity of the problem that is presented by millions of tons of human trash that is disposed into our oceans every year. Visits to our beaches present such sad sights of washed up marine life that is feeling the effects of our carelessness.

#flyingfish never cease to amaze with their ability to glide just above the water, sometimes tail tapping to continue the flight... 🐟🌴(📷 Andrew Correll/Sea Shepherd)

Recent interaction with a younger female tiger very clean almost no scars but she carried herself quite comfortably for a total of 4 passes in an hour. She was actively piggybacking the remaining adult male Galapagos sharks that challenged her newly dictated space although most of them dropped suddenly right before our human eyes could make out a looming shadow growing from behind the molding line 👀🐅🦈 diving with @sharkysophie @eliasharks @seajewl PHOTO BY @roxanacaha_photo 😎👌🏽📸

There’s a lot of pressure on shark populations around the world with over 100 million sharks being killed each year. Since the early 1900s, there has been a growth of popularity with shark diving involving photography, feeding, and swimming with sharks, which happens to contribute millions of dollars to local and regional economies. (Karen N. Topeiko and Philip Deaden 2005). Using ecotourism as a tool can not only aid in conservation and research projects, but also provides a long term economic value to their existence versus killing sharks for short term profit. Economic benefits from shark diving are particularly evident at the local level (Gallagher & Hammerschlag, 2011). For example, individual sharks in French Polynesia like the Black tips pictured above were estimated to have an ecotourism value of c. USD 1,200 per kg (based on data in Clua et al., 2011, and species length– weight relationships), compared with a landed value to local fishers of USD 1.5 per kg for shark meat (Sumaila et al.,2007). #WorthMoreAlive Sharks are very important to thus health of marine ecosystems because they are at the top of the food web, and are also considered to be like the oceans “white blood cells” (removing all of the old, sick, wounded, overpopulated and diseased prey) They keep the ocean healthy by serving as a selective pressure leaving only the strongest to reproduce. Many ecosystems rely on apex predators, or predators with little to no predators of their own to keep the system stable (Ferretti et al. 2010, Myers et al. 2007). #WeNeedSharks

Our favorite thing about #OneOceanGlobal is people from all around the world joining just to make big and little movements toward a healthier environment in any way they can! The program allows you to use your unique voice and talents to help #savetheplanet and #savetheocean! Here @kennaaloha shows us how one little adjustment to her Church’s morning routine allowed her to help the environment! Well done! 💙🌏

🌎My church used to provide single-use styrofoam coffee cups for people. However, now knowing the effects styrofoam has on the body and the environment, I helped us make the switch to reusable, environmentally-friendly, safe cups. ♥️🦈 {📷from yesterday} •
"Aloha, Church 'Ohana, In order to take better care of our bodies and the environment, we have replaced single-use Styrofoam cups with reusable mugs. We invite you to bring your own travel mug with you to use, but feel free to use one of these mugs provided. Please return used mugs here. Mahalo, Mackenna Cady" 🌎♥️ #makeachange #makeadifference

Manta rays are some pretty majestic creatures if I do say so myself.  These 3, 600 pound animals will slowly glide through the water as they are filter feeding or even just observe their surroundings. There are two species of Mantas, Reef Manta Ray (Manta alfredi) and Giant Manta Ray (Manta birostris) (Marshall et al. 2009). One study found that every 1 in 4 of the Manta alfredi  found off of Maui had shark related injuries, most likely from a tiger shark (Deakos, Mark H et al 2011). The injuries were equally present in both the females and males. Both species of Mantas face one big threat-fishing.  Sometimes these fishing threats are not intentional, but there are times that these mantas are targeted.  In parts of the world Mantas are highly sought over in the international trade market (IUCN Red List). You are probably wondering why they are so highly sought over?  In Hong Kong they are using the dried brachial plates for traditional medicinal practices despite a lack of scientific evidence. In Indonesia, a fisherman can make approximately $140 for the dried brachial plates and $6 for the dried skin from one manta (Dewar, Heidi 2002). That is not including the money they will make off of 20 dried rings of meat, which will be sent off to be used for wallets and shoes.  Between the months of May and October, it is manta-fishing season where one boat will land anywhere between 25-50 manta during the season (Dewar, Heidi 2002). It only ends in the rainy season because they are unable to dry the skin. Mantas have also been caught for their cartilage, just to be used as a filler in shark fin soup.

In 2009, the Governor of Hawaii signed the House Bill 366 creating Act 092(09). This Act made penalties and fines to be administered to those that intentionally capture or kill any manta rays within the waters of the state. While these animals are listed as vulnerable, any Manta that passes through the Hawaiian waters is protected, not just the ones that live amongst the islands in order to help make sure those numbers don’t go down any more than they have already(IUCN Redlist).
