We all want to get up close and personal with the underwater wildlife, but it's difficult to blend in when every breath you take causes an explosion of bubbles and sounds like darth vader! the filmmakers of the cinematic masterpiece, blue planet ii, remedied this by using closed circuit rebreathers (ccr). these systems eliminate the noise and bubbles from breathing and allow divers to approach marine life without scaring them away. rebreathers also give divers the ability to stay underwater for hours, increasing the chances of having spectacular encounters.
ocean first is offering a rebreather demo weekend on august 17-18th. take advantage of this unique opportunity to try out this advanced diving system!

The increase in #plastic#pollution in earth’s oceans and on beaches is killing #turtles of all species, with a disproportionate impact on hatchlings and young turtles, according to research published december 11, 2017 in the journal endangered species research. 🐋 ♻️ follow us and join the #bigbluemovement!
Red kangaroos hop along on their powerful hind legs and do so at great speed. a red kangaroo can reach speeds of over 35 miles an hour. their bounding gait allows them to cover 25 feet in a single leap and to jump 6 feet high. female red kangaroos are smaller, lighter, and faster than males. they also boast a blue-hued coat, so many australians call them “blue fliers.” larger male kangaroos are powerfully built. like many species, male kangaroos sometimes fight over potential mates. they often lean back on their sturdy tail and “box” each other with their strong hind legs. kangaroos can also bite and wield sharp claws, which they may do in battle with an enemy like a dingo. gs and do so at great speed. a red kangaroo can reach speeds of over 35 miles an hour. their bounding gait allows them to cover 25 feet in a single leap and to jump 6 feet high.
⛔️ 8 octopus eye facts ⛔️ what color are yours?
1️⃣👀octopus eyes focus like a camera with the lens moving in or out while our eyes use muscles to squeeze the lens to focus.
2️⃣👀 octopuses have dumbbell-shaped pupils ⛔️⛔️ that act like prisms, scattering white light in all directions. this effect is called chromatic aberration. when octopuses change the depth of their eyeball, they can focus different wavelengths of light on the retina individually. this might be how they see color! (research is currently being done on this by roger hanlon)
3️⃣👀 octopus have a hard time seeing white objects because they reflect all wave lengths of light.
4️⃣👀 octopuses possess an autonomic (unconscious) response that maintains the orientation of their pupils such that they are always horizontal- no matter what! ⛔️⛔️✅ never like cat eyes! (personal pet peeve😂)
5️⃣👀they have no blind spot- their optic nerves do not pass through the receptors but instead from behind them.
6️⃣👀they are nearsighted and can’t see much past 8 feet depending on the color.
7️⃣👀 octopus possess short and long term memory which means they can observe and remember people, various animals, and experiences.
8️⃣👀 discrimination training experiments have revealed 5 classes of information that octopuses can extract from their visual world! 1. brightnes 2. size 3. orientation 4. form 5. planes of polarization. an octopus’ polarized vision allows them to see nearly invisible critters like jellyfish!
bonus: opsin molecules found in octopus eyes to detect light are also distributed thoughout the skin all over their body & arms- this means, hypothetically, the animals can “see” or detect light with their skin.

**back in stock** i've had a huge delivery of the best selling n***d necessities shaving kits and they are now in stock for everyone that kept missing out!
switching to a safety razor is not as scary as you think and massively cuts down on plastic waste! still not sure on whether to make the change? i've done a demo on my igtv showing you how to use a safety razor!
£25 gets you a beautiful razor, a vegan shaving soap which forms an amazing lather and 5 spare blades!
how to dispose of the blades? a top tip from one of my followers is to keep them all in a used can (baked beans is my choice!) and then full simply close the top with pliers, use a marker to state razor blades and pop in your recycling. most recycling centers will take these but please check your local council first.
don't miss out - in stock now @www.plasticfreedom.co.uk
It’s so sweet when the local people appreciate my efforts of saving our planet - sometimes they even charge me less for the coconut 😍 this one on the picture usually is 25k-30k vdn but because i had my own straw they took only 18k (which is 0.75 us dollar) 😊 🙌🏼
