This life sized sculpture was made by @greenpeace Philippines to serve as an important reminder of the impact 525 trillion pieces of #plastic in the world's oceans have on marine life. We can all do our part by using renewable materials and end our plastic addiction for good! h/t @fathomlesslife #zerowaste #plasticwaste #ocean #savethewhales

The first method, most common in sperm and humpback whales, is conducted by swimming vertically upwards from depth, and heading straight out of the water. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The other more common method is to travel close to the surface and parallel to it, and then jerk upwards at full speed with as few as 3 tail strokes to perform a breach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ultimately, the reasons for breaching are unknown; however, there is evidence to support a range of hypotheses. Whales are more likely to breach when they are in groups, suggesting that it is a non-acoustic signal to other group members during social behaviour. Scientists have called this theory "honest signalling". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Don't wait for change, BE the change - —–——––——––——|🔹|––——––——––———
Tonight I went for a hike at one of the beach of my little village by the Norwegian coast. I filled up two shopping bags with plastic garbage, just by walking around. I've started to do that, more and more often. Lately, I've been feeling like even my little contribution might make a difference for one of those beautiful whales out there 🐳. Have you ever seen or heard one? Believe me, it's magic. And that is something I want my (hopefully) grandchildren to live once in their life too. Do your bit 🚮 and get inspired too, lots of great stuff at @sea_legacy #turningthetide #utpåtur #northsea #nordsjøvegen #beautyofnature #Fjellforum #fotturistforening #kystlotteriet #visitsørlandet #nrksørlandet #frilufsliv #utno #outdoors #fjelltid #rando #hikebythesea #naturelovers #sunset #mittflekkefjord #mothernature #savethewhales
It's not enough to simply conjure up a vision of your dream life... you must also take the necessary steps to make it happen • Putting something out to the universe doesn't just mean wishing for something, it means also doing what you can to make it happen and then the universe will respond to that energy and give you what you need • It's a balance of give and take. Just like any other relationship, you must foster your connection to the universe and with your mindset • Steps taken today will be rewarded in the future #motivationmonday
"I was helping my mom pressure wash the house today, and the pressure washer was acting a little funny, so I hit the reset button, and it started working fine and mom said "how about that! It's working fine now." And I said "yep! Sometimes things have got to be reset like a cellphone thats acting weird, a computer, even our thinking." I believe that if we let god reset our thinking sometimes that our life will run a lot better and your whole out look on life will change for good..." @mc__l0vin___ Tag a Friend!

NEW PARTNERSHIP!! We're super happy to announce that we will be distributing @novobrazil for the greater Los Angeles area! If you haven't had any of their beer before, it is fantastic. Keep a lookout for their beautiful cans in craft shops near you! 🍻
It is beyond heartbreaking that two-year-old J52 Sonic has been declared deceased, presumably due to malnutrition as drone images captured his emaciated state earlier this month. His endangered Southern Resident family now number 76 members in the wild. More and more individuals will be declared missing and dead so long as they continue to starve from lack of salmon. Please choose NOT to consume salmon, wild or farmed, from the Pacific Northwest (Washington and British Columbia). These killer whales' lives literally depend upon it. (See #SSFSalmon for more info.)
Sonic was the first calf of J36 Alki, and spent his days with his grandma J16 Slick, uncle J26 Mike, and aunts J42 Echo and J50 Scarlet (only 2 months older than Sonic). Rest In Peace, sweet Sonic.

I was so surprised when I saw these whales breaching from the beach so I had to run to North Bondi to capture these majestic creatures from above. Amazing. Epic. Magical. 💯
