💔🐬 assault on small cetaceans via @shawnheinrichs:
dolphins, porpoises, orcas, beaked whales, belugas, narwhals, pilot whales, etc. are all under extreme threats from illegal and unregulated hunting across the oceans. over 100,000 per year are hunted for bait to be used on long lines to catch sharks, for low-grade meat, and even for their teeth and bones to be turned into the tourist souvenirs. ‼️ these are some of the most intelligent, curious, and gentle ocean beings, yet we are senselessly and barbarically wiping them out. we must put a stop to this insanity. in the words of gandhi, "the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” @bluespherefoundation
and @sealegacy will be working hard this year to tackle this urgent issue. 🙏🐬🔥🐋 #savethewhales#worthmorealive#turningthetide
Some big news from this week. 🙌🏼way to go, @sandiego.city! #repost@racingextinction
icymi: #sandiego became the largest city in california to ban styrofoam! this material is one of the most harmful to the environment.
here are just some of the major problems with styrofoam:
fewer than 1% of plastic foams can be recycled. ♻️ although the technological exists to recycle the material, few facilities have the equipment.
styrofoam can easily be blown from dumping sites in to drains and gutters where it eventually ends up in the ocean causing harm to an array of marine life. 🐠 •
it takes at least 500 years for styrofoam to break down! but even though it may be broken down in to smaller fragments, it never truly biodegrades and could be around for more than 1 million years! 😱 ・・・ #banstyrofoam#saynotoplastic#recycle
