Play for the oceans, bondi icebergs pool, sydney
january 10, 2019
yesterday we celebrated the launch of the first @adidastennis collection made from @oceanplastic and designed to protect our oceans through eco-innovation. we transformed an iconic pool into a tennis court - which will be donated to a local school for continued use. creators united and played for a bigger cause. 🌊next stop: melbourne, where some of the world's top athletes will represent the oceans during the 2019 australian open.
From the coast to the court, we must work together to protect our oceans. @alexzverev123 joins forces with former olympic swimmer and marine biologist @coralie_balmy to share the message behind the sportswear.
with the new @adidastennis x parley collection, we’re bringing the movement to end marine plastic pollution to the 2019 australian open
“whaling as a ‘legal’ industry has ended. all that remains is to mop up the pirates.” - @captainpaulwatson
over the holidays, the japanese government confirmed it will restart commercial whaling in july and exit the international whaling commission (iwc). this will end its so-called scientific whaling (“research”) in the antarctic region, and limit the country’s catch to seas near japan and its exclusive economic zone.
does the move signal disaster or victory for whales and their defenders in the southern ocean?
@seashepherd has worked for years to stop whalers and poachers on the high seas. read founder paul watson’s take on why japan’s departure from the iwc is a good thing and catch up on other ocean news in this week’s #stateoftheoceans. follow the bio link.
