An important update from our friends at @chasingcoral: before and after in american samoa: dec 2014 - feb 2015.
sometimes dramatic transformations can happen in a little as 2 months, not 10 years.
film is a powerful tool for creating impact, but it will take swift action from all of us in order to turn things around for our planet. find out more at www.chasingcoral.com/take-action.

πŸ’”πŸ¬ 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. πŸ™πŸ¬πŸ”₯πŸ‹

Some big news from this week. πŸ™ŒπŸΌway 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! 😱 ・・・

πŸ‹πŸŽ¨ in honor of #fanartfriday we are sharing this powerful #savethewhales piece from @cipin_valsan.
make sure to tag us in your #artivism for a chance to be featured next week!
“the nature's calling you, to stop harassing it. to stop haunting it. to stop killing it, one life at a time. when your 'comforts' cost a whole ecosystem's livelihood, don't take pride in being the super-being, in being the power that controls everything. a few quakes, erupts & swirl is all it will take to wash you all away, biohazards, the humans!

whaling is a brutal and bloody business, and although there has been strong opposition to it from millions of people around the world, japan, norway, and iceland continue to hunt and k**l these beautiful creatures by the boat load.”
