While the Ocean SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) are not legally binding, they do represent the overarching development norms and priorities of the international community, adopted by consensus. The implementation of the Ocean SDG could prove vital in providing pathways for more effective “systems of governance” for the global Ocean commons. ©BernardDupont/Flickr #ocean #sustainable #development #goals #international #community #governance #systems #global #sealife #marinelife #marinebiodiversity #oceanlife #marinelife #oceanconservation

@oceanfilmfestuk another great festival week at @unionchapeluk - I was sad to see less conservation vibes than past years but the cinematography never disappoints. Looking forward to next year (and @banffmountainfestival ) already. @seagypsiesmovie you guys were my fav. #filmfestival #oceanfilmfestival #oceanconservation #conservation #plasticfree #zerowaste #saveourseas #fishpeople #seagypsies #haven #whalechasers #staywithus #oceanrubbish #thelegacy

Please give @smallstepssurfing a follow. Through education and enjoyment we can all work together towards conserving the beauty that this planet has to offer. #oceanconservation #itsnotok #surfing #education #conservation
Meet @zimmerman1963, chairman of @wplongboarding and originator of the beautiful hand-crafted @rudeboyfins. Carl believes plastic and industrial pollution as well as over-fishing to be the greatest threat to the ocean- his sanctuary and place of peace. He believes that the ultimate solution lies in the elimination of plastic and our reliance purely on recycled and sustainable materials, which is why his fins are carved from bamboo and wood. His pledge to pick up a bag full of trash whenever he goes for a surf is a great step toward being part of the solution. We hope you keep it up and look forward to hearing about your journey along the way. # # # . . . . . #ourocean #protectourwaves #choosetorefuse #surferspledge #oceanaddict #plasticfree #protecttheocean #surfing #cleanseas #cleanocean #oceanconservation #oceanawareness #beachcleanup #seachange #oceanhero #choosetorefuse #environmental #surfersagainstsewage #oceantherapy #staysalty #bethechange #oceanforlife #keepouroceansclean #surfingsouthafrica

Got a little carried away with my message writing in the sand 😉 When doing my last beach clean i had a lady add a piece of plastic to my bucket. I wonder if she would have picked that up had she not seen me picking? Remember every piece you pick up counts and it might even encourage others! #beachclean #cleanourseas #messageinthesand
What goes around comes around....literally. . Introducing the first piece of my new series titled "FOUND" which features random objects I personally found on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Today's find is a vintage rubber cart wheel. . Did you know that Americans generate 10.5 million tons of PLASTIC waste a year but recycle only 1 or 2 % of it? An estimated 14 billion pounds of trash (mostly plastic) is dumped in the world's oceans every year. Totally unacceptable. . . . . . #technibilt #wanzl #ocean #trash #rubber #wheel #oceantrash #found #waste #abstract #art #pacificocean #conservation #oceanlife #oceanlove #california #westcoast #earth #recycle #oceanconservation #oceanconservancy
Appearing as if a plateau is rising from a verdant plain this protrusion is merely a bump on a large rock. The expanding and shimmering water give the illusion of grandeur. The space is actually no bigger than a shoe box. Who says perspective isn't everything. #underwaterworld #natureart #abstractnature #abstract #surrealnature #surreal #sydneycoast #coast #oceanpools #sydneyoceanpools #macro #macroworld #underwatermacro #beach #moodybeach #instanature #marineconservation #oceanconservation #earthpix #earthfocus #artofvisuals #natureonly #nature_aus
Our last fieldtrip to the Bay of La Paz to carry out maintenance of our listening stations array was a complete success! These devices detect the presence of sharks, mantas and mobulas previously tagged with acoustic transmitters by the Pelagios Kakunjá team. We hope to get information very soon! ------------------ ¡Nuestra ultima salida de campo a la Bahía de La Paz para dar mantenimiento a la red de estaciones acústicas fue todo un éxito!

(POST 2 of 2 CONTINUED FROM POST 1) Gillnets remain to be a colossal threat to the marine community, trapping and killing scores of whales, dolphins, porpoises, sharks, turtles, and other fish. With the numbers of vaquitas as low as they are, drastic measures are being taken to attempt to save them. Starting in October 12th, wildlife officials in Mexico have begun attempts to capture and protect the #porpoises by using U.S. Navy dolphins to locate them. The vaquitas will be placed in pens, protected from #illegal fishing with the hope that they will be able to breed so that they can survive in the wild again (biologicaldiversity.org 2017). If you’re interested in learning more or want to get involved, check out @vaquitacpr or consider donating to @seashepherd's campaign Operation Milagro III dedicated to protecting the waters of the vaquita refuge, patrolling for poachers, documenting issues facing the endangered cetacean, and collecting vital data to share with the scientific community. While it is incredibly sad to imagine these animals reduced to a life in captivity until their numbers can recover (even if it is a sea pen), with such a dramatic population decline and insufficient resources to adequately patrol the area it may be their only hope for survival despite the fact that their biological needs to allow successful husbandry are not fully understood. At the very least we hope this serves as a wake up call for the rest of the world, and a reminder to be proactive vs reactive to prevent populations of threatened wildlife from getting this bad in the first place. #ExtinctionIsForever #RacingExtinction #HelpSaveSharks What do you think? Feel free let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. Spread the word to help save the vaquitas. Thanks for reading.
