Feeling super proud at our first team beach clean and #nerdsfornurdles attempt!! Tens of thousands of whales, birds, seals and turtles are killed every year from plastic bag litter in the marine environment as they often mistake plastic bags for food such as jellyfish. Hopefully we managed to prevent a few of these incidents happening after our efforts today 💙 #saveaseaturtle #lessplasticmoreocean #oceanconservation #wildlifesense
The northern elephant seal is a conservation success story! Nearly hunted to extinction by the early 1900s, the northern elephant seal population has almost completely recovered to the estimated pre-hunting levels.⠀ ⠀ Image courtesy of Sounds of the Southern Ocean 2006 Exploration, Kate Stafford, NOAA-OE @noaa .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #MissionBlue #NoBlueNoGreen #HopeSpots #SylviaEarle #OceanConservation #MarineConservation #OceanOptimism #ThinkBlue #Ocean #Sea #Shore #Blue #Beach #Conservation #OceanMinded #seal #pup #cute #elephantseal #conservationsuccess #success

The Svalbard reindeer is the smallest reindeer subspecies found in Svalbard, Norway. These beautiful animals have inhabited these islands over 5,000 years ago and have become well adapted to the harsh arctic climate.⠀ Photographer: @lasofarctique⠀ -⠀ -⠀ -⠀ #oceanicwildlifeconservation #oceanicwildlife #coastalwildlife #reindeer #svalbard #svalbardreindeer #coast #naturephotography #visitsvalbard #arctic #animalhabitat #nature #ocean #oceanlife #norway #conservation #oceanconservation #marineconservation #wildlifephotography #wildanimals #wildlife #Spitsbergen #northernnorway #norge
If you haven't seen Chasing Coral yet, it's on Netflix.. it's heartbreaking to realize that many, many reefs across the world are literally dying. People have joined forces to document it all across the globe. 🌏 We can't close our eyes to our world literally dying around us. The effect it's having on ecosystems is tremendous. Let's help stop climate change simply by making better choices. Shop sustainably, embrace the clean energy movement.. what's the worst that could happen if we do this?? Nothing!! It's clean living. It's kind. It's beneficial. It's doing our part for a better cleaner future.

Repost @oneoceandiving: "NOW IS THE TIME TO SPEAK UP FOR MARINE MAMMALS‼️ 🐬🐋🐳The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) is being reviewed for possible changes. These changes could decrease the safety and health of whales, dolphins, seals, or manatees... just to name a few. In Congress, oil affiliates have proposed to allow seismic airgun blasting and adding new areas for offshore drilling. If the proposed bill passes, oil companies that begin seismic airgun blasting and extend offshore drilling sites will put marine mammals in extensive risk. Seismic airgun blasting is a method to find oil and gas in the ocean floor. The blasts continue 24 hours a day and repeat every 10 seconds, which serves as an extreme stressor for marine life. These blasting cycles could last days to weeks at a time. The loud blasts disturb, injure, and often kill marine mammals, fish, sea turtle, and other marine life. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) and MMPA are the foundations in protecting marine life and conserving oceanic organisms. SPEAK UP AND SPREAD THE WORD‼️ Make your voice heard by reaching out to your member of Congress and telling them to #SAVETHEOCEAN 💙 Go to . . USA.oceana.org . .

I posted this before but i don't know why It didn't work (sorry). I'm sure lots of you guys have heard of those People dragging the shark and other animal rights violations but it has come to our attention that we as a society do these things for views. I'm not posting this to hate on them in particular and please don't comment "rednecks" and all that because in my opinion when we classify them as a certain type of person (like redneck) we are just as bad as them. They do these things to look cool or because it's acceptable I. Society. We label them monsters for disrespecting wildlife but the problem is that we as a society label others. That label is the reason people do these things. They want to show people that they're tougher than sharks or any other animal. It is our job to push society away from labels that create stereotypes so sharks won't be hunted and so people learn it isn't cool to pose with sharks or rays. I usually don't get "offended" by things I see in the media, but what does bother me is the disrespect of wildlife. #itsnotcool #respect (Please ignore my grammar I'm just rambling ) #instagram #summer #college #beach #fishing #sharks #stingray #difs
