Our @mvfarleymowat crew hard at work! RECORD-BREAKER . Nine to five work hours don't exist when you're protecting marine life! During Operation Milagro IV, we also work nights, locating illegal targets on our radar and confirming them with our night vision drone. . Our crew works relentlessly around the clock to get as many nets out of the sea as possible before they become deadly traps. Our last catch took us through the middle of the night, starting at around midnight, and ending a little before 4am. Despite these non-traditional hours, it is always worth it because we managed to find and remove a record-breaking brand new totoaba net, nearly 600m long, almost completely free of trapped animals ! πŸ“· Rodolphe Villevieille / Sea Shepherd #seashepherd #seashepherdsandiego #farleychapter #ocean #oceans #fortheoceans #vaquita #vaquitamarina #endangered #extinction #mexico #milagro #opmilagro #seaofcortez #instagood #conservation #oceanconservation

I photographed this little Mototi Octopus (Octopus mototi) on my last dive at Lembeh. These octopus are rare, small and also poisonous. Similar to the blue ringed octopus, the mototi has blue rings, which it flashes when it is threatened. However, it has only two rings. If you look carefully, you can see one of the blue rings in this photo. #octopus #mototi #bluering #naturephotography #macro #lembeh #nadlembeh #macrophotography #scuba #underwaterphotography #scubapixaustralia #diving #small #photooftheday #myview #cute #oceanconservation #saynotoplastic #subal #photooftheday #canon #scubadiving #sealife #padi

I bring my board, I bring my bucket. I use the ocean, I try to give back! Since almost 2 months the ocean is giving us non-stop waves, I surf a minimum of 2 hours a day. Collecting a bucket of trash takes me less than 10 minutes! It is because of our actions, we are facing these consequences today! #memyboardandmybucket #protectwhatyoulove #oceanconservation #bannedfromthebeach #fortheocean #marinelife #beachcleanup #stoppollution #stoptrashingourplanet #educate #stoptalkingstartdoing #itsnotok #plastics #oceanislove #waves #beach #surf #surfing #swimming #theoceangivesussomuch #seashepherd #seashepherddive #take3forthesea #takeallyoucan

A sea anemone feeds in Antarctica's Ross Sea, where these predators are known to live upside down under ice shelves, on the backs of sea snails, and even as deep as 3,200 meters (nearly 2 miles). No matter where they rest in the new Ross Sea Region Marine Protected Area, anemone now have a fully protected home in Antarctica. πŸ“·: John Weller . . . #anemone #anemones #rosssea #rossseampa #Antarctica #Antarctic #Antarcticregion #conservation #wildlife #deepsea #oceananimals #seaanimals #aquatic #aquaticlife #marineprotection #marineprotected #marineprotectedarea #rossseampa #mpa deepdive #seabottom #oceanconservation #oceanic

Bodhi and I had the pleasure of attending the Youth Ocean Conservation Summit in Sarasota this past weekend. MOTE has a great Marine Debris Art Awareness exhibit called Washed Ashore. This is Greta the Great White Shark, and she helps to educate the public about the huge problem of plastic in our oceans. She is made from marine litter. Refuse, reduce, and reuse as much as you can. Recycling facilities can’t keep up with the amount of plastic we use. And as always, clean up your beach. βœŒπŸΎπŸŒπŸ‹πŸ¬πŸ¦ˆπŸ™ @moteeducation @motemarinelab @mote_lab @sean_russell92 @washedashoreproject #YOCS2017 #YOCS #YouthOceanConservationSummit #sarasota #oceanconservation #beoceanminded #plasticisforever #plasticocean #surfrider #picoftheday #instagood #surfriderbroward #surfriderfoundation #longlivethebeach #protectwhatyoulove #ilovemybeach #ilovetheocean #refuse #reduce #reuse #teamuden #greatwhite #shark #art #marinedebrisawareness #dontlitter #cleanyourbeach #cleanwaterhealthybeaches #washedashore #washedashoreproject

A dream like underwater world is nestled in a spot that is known as Tiger Beach in the Bahamas. There are many potential reasons why the spot seems to attract large sharks: some attribute it to the shallow waters that range from 6-30 meters, and others say its the consistently warm water temperatures, which average 80 degrees year around. One thing is certain a large number of Tiger Sharks ( Galeocerdo cuvier) and other various species of sharks can be found there. According to a recent research study by the University of Maimi, there a strong female presence at Tiger Beach. The females that are frequently found vary in age and life stage. Through the use of ultrasonography and measuring the circulating sex steroid hormones scientist found that "Tiger Beach may serve as a refuge habitat, allowing females to reach maturity free from male mating harassment, as well as functioning as a gestation ground where gravid females an benefit from year-round calm warm waters, which may reduce gestation period and accelerate embryo development." (Sulikowski et al 2016). The reproductive habits of the tiger shark usually leaves the female with scars from bite marks, the scars range in color and size. It is the female dominated presence of the area that seems to deter males from entering these waters on a regular basis. Thankfully this area is protected within the exclusive economic zone of the Bahamas, but where these females go after their time at Tiger beach is unknown. Identifying and protecting birthing grounds should be a priority for future conservation and research efforts.

πŸ‹ Recently I came across a video of a female humpback that was completely entangled in fishing nets from head to tail. A small group a fisherman worked tirelessly with two small knives to free her. They worked for several hours as she would repeatedly dive down and come back up several 100 feet away. I was in tears when I watch this video. Seeing her trapped in a fishing net, obviously tired, struggling to breathe and stay afloat, absolutely pulled at my heartstrings. All she was doing the swimming and trying to survive. Which is hard enough such a vast unforgiving ocean. Unfortunately the fisherman weren’t able to free her tail and her fate will most likely not end well. The reality is that we are completely disregard the balance of nature. Did you know there are roughly 300,000 cetaceans by-catch deaths each year? Essentially whales, dolphins and porpoises swim into these gigantic fishing nets for an easy meal and get caught, unable to free themselves. Once they are stuck they either drown or become eaten alive by other predators. All because we want our 🍣 , πŸ¦€, or our ahi steaks πŸ₯© . You see the problem is commercial fishing pulls more from the ocean than it can sustain. And unfortunately the damage doesn’t end at fishing, once you factor in the needless by-catch killing we are asking for disaster. We are undoubtably upsetting the balance of nature. Tipping the scales to an unhealthy level, and it will have major consequences. Please keep this in mind when seeing beautiful images of whales like this beautiful newborn baby girl. Or even think twice before ordering seafood. Help fix the balance and refuse to support overfishing, one meal at a time. πŸ‹ #underwaterphotography #underwaterart #underwatermagic #underwater #bepassionate #freedive #mermaid #bg_underwater #natureporn #nature #naturelovers #nature_perfection #protectwildlife #protectwhatyoulove @theellenshow #ocean #oceanconservation #conservation #animals @leonardodicaprio #planetearth

A lot of visitors ask how our patients get to Marine Mammal Care Center LA. We don't do the rescues ourselves. Instead, we rely on a network of Marine Animal Rescue folks that respond to calls about sick or injured seals and sea lions along the LA County coast. In early October, two of our animal care crew members, Jennifer and Kim, watched and documented as a rescue unfolded at nearby Sunken City. An adult female sea lion was spotted out on the rocks with a pretty bad gash on her right fore flipper. We can't be sure how she was injured, but she couldn't put her full weight on it. Together with LA County Lifeguards, the MAR crew secured the injured sea lion in a net and carefully floated her out to the waiting boat. She was then loaded onto a truck and brought to MMCC LA where our staff took over her care and she became Patient 17-348. As you can see, she's put on a lot of weight over the last couple of months. Even though it looks bad, her wound is healing and she can use her flipper again. She has no problem chasing and bossing the other patients around. In fact, she's sometimes referred to as T-Rex because she makes her displeasure known with a raspy howl. She's been through a lot so at least she's come by it honestly. We're grateful to Marine Animal Rescue and LA County Lifeguards that regularly pull together to get animals safely to our door. If you see an animal in distress, please call them first as handling wild animals of any size is dangerous work. And special thanks to Jennifer and Kim for sharing an amazing rescue of a patient that they now help care for on a regular basis. Great work, everyone!
