Tomorrow’s beach cleanup update! ⚠️ happy aloha friday, everyone! unfortunately the swell on the west side of oahu is forecasted to be bigger than we’d hoped, so we’re moving the cleanup to 🔅tracks 🔅beach. it’s just down the road from electric beach, so it should be around the same driving distance. 😉 no reef cleanup, sadly, but there should be an unfortunate amount of debris to pick up on the beach. as usual, we recommend bringing reef-safe sun protection, a filled reusable water bottle and some snacks :) despite the location change, we’re still hosting our cleanup on/at the same date and time: tomorrow from 12:00-3:00pm. 🌊 we hope this doesn’t cause too much confusion & we hope you are still able to join us! mahalo in advance for your help and energy in helping us #savetheocean ! we greatly appreciate it. see you tomorrow! 💙
Beautiful and important quote by the amazing sylvia earle. whether the ocean is your front yard or if there isn’t an ocean around you for miles...either way, you are connected to it. the ocean plays a vital role in all of our lives. we need to learn to protect instead of destroy it ;) 💙 photo via @unitedlettersbooks // if you’re on oahu this saturday, join us for a reef and beach cleanup at electric beach! view our bio for details :) #savetheocean#savetheplanet@kennaaloha
Heartbreaking, powerful artwork and caption by @michellefleurphoto . we must all take action now to save the planet and save the ocean. so many living beings are negatively affected by plastic. but we have the power to change this! 💙 how will you reduce plastic today? #repost@michellefleurphoto // ・・・
nearly all of the world’s seabirds have ingested plastic. many have died as a direct result of this ingestion. as the birds stomachs fill with plastic they become unable to ingest or digest real food. they starve to death. .
when i think about the true impact of my consumption it is horrifying. it is not easy to change but we must, for the sake of seabirds, marine life, this planet, our own lives. we must take, or make, the time to do better.

talking story with the locals 🐢 if you look closely you can see 4 turtles in this image, but there was a total of 7 cruising here with us on this particular morning! so fun to watch how they interact with each other!
one of the best ways you can help save these guys is by reducing your consumption of plastic! using a reusable water bottle, shopping bag, utensils, coffee mug, and refusing straws are simple ways you can positively impact the environment from anywhere in the world! one of my favorite quotes i’ve seen reads, “what difference is one bottle going to make? - said 7 billion people.” you do make a difference, your choices make a difference, and it’s a big one at that!
Thank you to all of you who joined our beach cleanup in kahala! 🙏🏽thankfully, there wasn’t a ton of trash, however, we still picked up quite a lot :(...lots of glass bottles, paper, many plastic bottles and cups, and more! thank you, hard-workers. /// swipe to see a glance over what we all picked up, plus some of our volunteers with their prizes! /// let’s keep working together to #savetheocean and keep our planet and ocean beautiful and sustainable. we can be the change. join us on our next monthly cleanup #secondsaturday on june 9th 12:00-3:00. location yet to be determined. mahalo nui loa again to everyone who’s joining our conservation efforts. aloha! 💙 #savetheplanet#beach#cleanup#makeadifference ///// thank you @oneoceandesigns@7seasrope@ecoceanic@shells4sharks@louhelpsyousavesharks for providing the giveaways!
#repost this video from @oceanramsey on a dive with @oneoceandiving is an incredibly sad reminder of why it is so important to lessen our consumption of plastics! plastic is choking our planet, and it’s up to us to make the necessary changes!

a plastic waste basket bag liner wrapped around this shark 💔 i couldn’t get close enough to help, he was wary of my approach. breaks my heart to see the destructive harm of human made products. remember when you throw it away it it doesn’t go away. consume mindfully and reduce, reuse. the whole @oneoceandiving team has eyes out for this shark and we regularly cut fishing line off sharks with the @cressi1946 alligator knives we carry onboard daily it’s just sad it’s increasingly more often we see plastic floating by and fishing line wrapped around marine animals.
the best part of my day today was swimming at sunset a large female honu #turtle swim by @juansharks & i showing fishing line out the side of her mouth and wrapped around her pectoral fin. this time working together we were able to help her and get it off. i cannot tell you how good it feels to help undo some of the human impacts on innocent animals and help save a life and a lifetime of suffering. i couldn’t help this shark this day but i hope sharing video of him inspires sympathy for him, his kind, and helps everyone to remember their daily consumer choices make an impact 🦈💙🦈 please share and please pick up debris wherever you see it. 💙🦈💙🐢💙🐬💙🐠💙🐳💙🐧 #opala#helpsavesharks#savetheocean#opalachallenge#take3forthesea#grab4tag4#noexcuseforsingleuse#stopsucking#bag#bags#ocean#sharks#oneoceandiving#oneocean@oneoceanconservation@waterinspired@oneoceanglobal@oneoceanhawaii@oneoceansharks@oneoceanresearch
