@waterinspired @allgoodbrand // exciting news!
mahalo, hawaii!! 🌴 today, governor david ige officially signed a bill into law that will ban the sale of chemical sunscreens across the state. this is a huge win for the health of people, of coral reef ecosystems and of the ocean.
show your support for #reeffriendly sunscreens by resharing this postcard on your feed.

Thank you, everyone, for all of your hard work today at this month’s cleanup! tracks didn’t seem like a littered beach at first glance, but sadly we picked up a lot of trash such as glass, aluminum, styrofoam, and single-use plastic! protecting the ocean takes all of us, so big mahalo for joining us today. β˜€οΈπŸ€™πŸ½#savetheocean #savetheplanet #beachcleanup #oahu #hawaii #reduce #plastic thank you to our sponsors and supporters for donating prizes such as @oneoceandesigns @7seasrope @4ocean πŸ’™

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 πŸ”…tracks πŸ”…beach. it’s just down the road from electric beach, so it should be around the same driving distance. πŸ˜‰ 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! πŸ’™

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 ;) πŸ’™ 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! πŸ’™ 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.
.

tomorrow i will post a list of ideas of how to reduce, reuse and recycle. i’m learning to. let’s do this together! πŸ‘ŠπŸ» @steamotype .

We’re so happy and stoked for our co-founders @juansharks and @oceanramsey , finally spotting more great whites on their south africa trip! please #helpsavesharks. why? they keep the ocean healthy and in balance. and since we need the ocean, that also means that we need sharks. 🦈 they’re apex predators, not monsters. ❀️ #repost @juansharks ・・・
great white shark sunset! we final were able to find a great white shark in south africa. the best part was that it happened completely natural without any chumming. crazy to think we went out chumming for days in gansbaai and false bay, what was known as the best spots for great whites in the 🌎. we found the great whites in a marine protected park that i will not name because these animals need protection from human impacts, wether it is from poaching, over fishing, shark nets, or orcas. the orcas did k**l two 7 gill sharks in false bay while we were here but orcas have been sighted here for decades and i’m not totally sold on the idea that they are causing the population of white sharks to drop so dramatically. people are also spotting orcas in this mpa that we found great white sharks with no apparent side effects to the populations there. so happy that we got to see great white sharks in south africa for @theapexexpedition i still think that white sharks here need more protection and for that matter world wide. photo by #juanoliphant using @aquatech_imagingsolutions on #assignment in #southafrica #balanced #ecosystem #save #whitesharks to#savepenguins #helpsavesharks #savetheocean #oneocean #oneoceandiving #onechance #conservation #sharks #freediving #sunset #apexpredatornotmonster #instagood #photooftheday #photoforacause on this expédition with @oceanramsey @tanyavangraan @abc4explore @iamjuliawheeler

Learn an easy way to help save honu (a.ka. sea turtles) from one ocean conservation’s @tahenley below! ・・・
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!
i
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!

#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 πŸ’” 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 πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™πŸ¦ˆ please share and please pick up debris wherever you see it. πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™πŸ’πŸ’™πŸ¬πŸ’™πŸ πŸ’™πŸ³πŸ’™πŸ§ #opala #helpsavesharks #savetheocean #opalachallenge #take3forthesea #grab4tag4 #noexcuseforsingleuse #stopsucking #bag #bags #ocean #sharks #oneoceandiving #oneocean @oneoceanconservation @waterinspired @oneoceanglobal @oneoceanhawaii @oneoceansharks @oneoceanresearch
