One of our one ocean conservation leads had the opportunity to join @theplasticsproject at the waikiki fall festival last saturday to help educate the public (kids and adults alike) on plastic pollution and shark conservation! the plastics project is a kid-run organization, one of the founders being a fellow @oneoceanglobal ambassador, 10 year-old @ryleebrooke_official! check out their profile (@theplasticsproject ) to see how you can join their efforts! you can also check out @oneoceanglobal if you’re interested in becoming an ambassador! it’s inspiring to see all of the dedicated kids here in hawaii and all around the rest of the world using their powerful voices to create change! never let anyone look down on you because you are young :) keep fighting to protect the planet! thank you for all of your hard work! ❀️ #changemakers #plasticpollution #reduce #plastickills #plasticfree #takeaction #oneoceanglobal @kennaaloha

We’re devastated to report that another beautiful southern resident orca has passed. with now only 74 salish sea orcas remaining, we all need to use our voices and help these suffering animals! find out how you can help below! πŸ’” #repost @keiko_conservation ・・・
heartbreaking news today from @salishseaorcas. original image clint rivers.β €
"it is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of j50 or 'scarlet'. only 74 salish sea orcas remain.β €
rip scarletβ €
#jointhepod"β €
πŸŒŠβ €
the southern resident orcas are starving to death. it's now or never.β €
how can you help?β €
the #southernresidentorca population in the #pacificnorthwest is endangered and on the brink of extinction due primarily to their main source of food, the #chinooksalmon, also being endangered. the main cause of this is the #snakeriverdams which prevents many of these salmon from swimming up the #snakeriver to spawn and return to sea every year. these dams could be replaced with alternatives that already exist, the use of them has dramatically decreased, and they're unnecessarily costing taxpayers millions in expensive maintenance costs. β €
you can help by calling @govinslee (1-360-902-4111 if in the usa) and asking him to "breach the 4 snake river dams in 2018!” speak up for orcas and call every day.β €
tweet: @govinslee because #nofishnoblackfish! you can also share this info on social media and ask your friends and family to do the same!β €
you can learn more from our friends and partners at @pnwprotectors or go to keikoconservation.org.β €

Plastic pollution πŸ‘ŽπŸ½πŸ‘ŽπŸ½ #repost @waterinspired & @girlmeetsshark ・・・
note the word “reusable” on this bag. i took it with me when i left the water. .🌊🌊🌊.
i was in awe of this beautiful creature, but saddened by the amount of debris i collected on this dive. many of my favorite animal encounters are tempered with reminders of the issues facing our oceans and planet. entanglement, marine debris, prop scars. we can do better! i can do better and i’m looking at ways to use less myself. be the change you want to see. πŸ€™πŸ» small change = change 🌏
human impact...
much of it is negative, but with simple changes, we can make it positive🌎 // second caption by @waterinspired :
such an absolutely magnificent manta ray photographed by @girlmeetsshark , but unfortunately it is adorned with a fishing hook/line and pictured alongside a plastic bag with the word “reusable” written on it. #plasticistherealkiller our oceans desperately deserve for us to be aware of our human impacts on this planet and its inhabitants! β™»οΈπŸ’™

We’re learning more and more on sharks and the role they play in the environment. as top predators in the ocean, they help keep lower-trophic level populations under control (i.e. fish, squid, turtles, mammals, etc.), along with keeping them healthy and free of disease. they primarily pick off only the weak, sick, injured, and dead animals, allowing the strongest and healthiest to thrive! however, sharks are at the risk of extinction. it’s estimated that around 90% of their populations have declined! the more we learn about sharks’ role on this planet, the more we come to the realization that we need to work to save them before it’s too late. as a consumer, help save sharks by not purchasing shark products, such as teeth (unless they’re fossilized), jaws, fins, cartilage, and meat. you can also refuse to support industrial fisheries, which have been shown to use unsustainable fishing practices that result in the killing of hundreds of sharks, along with killing other untargeted animals. another great way to help save sharks is by ✨using your voice✨, whether by influencing legislation to better protect sharks or by educating the public on their importance 🦈 don’t shy away from learning more, speaking up, and helping solve these rising problems. :) let’s work together to save sharks and take our next steps towards positive change πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™| photo from @oneoceandiving #savesharks saynoto#sharkfishing saynoto#sharkfinsoup #savetheocean #saveourseas #shark #conservation #environment #awareness #oneoceandiving #haleiwa #oahu #hawaii #sharkconservation @kennaaloha

Plastic pollution is a growing issue threatening the planet and the life that relies on it. learn more about plastic and how you can help fix this problem below! 🌊 #repost from our friends at @oneoceanresearch
・・・
plastic pollution is a major environmental issue, and we are only beginning to understand how it impacts the marine environment. there is growing level of global awareness regarding how destructive our collective consumption of single use plastics truly is, as plastic never goes away but breaks into smaller pieces that are present in every marine environment (sebille et al. 2015). plastic is also known to absorb toxins and pollutants that promote endocrine-disrupting effects on fish (rochman et al. 2014). a recent publication in association with @marinemegafaua (elitza et al. 2018) took a deeper look at this issue and how it could impact charismatic filter feeding megafauna like whale sharks, manta/mobulid rays, and baleen whales. they identified 3 high priority areas with high microplastic:plankton ratios with a high probability of #microplastic ingestion- the #gulfofmexico, the #bayofbengal downstream of the #gangesriver, and the #coraltriangle which is located in close proximity to the world’s largest emitters of plastic pollution. ingestion could result in blocking the digestive tract and inadequate nutrient absorption, bio accumulation of toxins that could disrupt biological process including reproduction, and even transfer of these toxins to their young with impacts for generations to come. long term monitoring is needed to determine long term impacts and safeguard these iconic species as well as the other life forms that could be impacted throughout the large habitat range they inhabit. you can help by reducing your consumption of single use plastics, voting for policies that help reduce plastic from entering the ocean, and supporting corporate responsibility to advocate for extended producer responsibility in countries where the infrastructure for waste management and recycling does not exist.

Young and passionate conservationist, zoë, is working hard in oregon to help save the planet and motivate others to take action, too! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ’™ thank you for using your voice! #repost @sharksareourfriend ・・・
portland oregon, i used to think you were beautiful but this is disgusting. this is just a small part of the trash i have seen while visiting. trash is everywhere! and portland has one of the biggest waterways to the ocean. don’t people care about their town? don’t people care about the ocean? don’t they want to keep portland pretty and the oceans safe? i don’t understand. i walked 9 blocks with this trash and not one trash can. that might be a good start. i think it’s time to write a letter. #ugly #portland #oregon #pdx #trash #carefortheearth #conservationist #carefortheocean #helpsavesharks #sharksareourfriends #disappointed #starbucks #straws #plastic #everywhere #willamette #columbia #rivers #willametteriver #columbiariver #savetheplanet #savetheocean #conservation
