#didyouknow sea turtles are air breathing reptiles, so they need to surface to breathe. sea turtles can hold their breath for several hours, depending upon the level of activity. a resting or sleeping turtle can remain underwater for 4-7 hours! 🐢🐢

✨participating in the beach cleanup this morning was fun. it‘s great to find that many people caring for the environment, for the oceans, for wildlife, for our planet. 🌍whatsoever, there are way too many people out there that either don’t give a s**t or don’t have the knowledge and/or financial resources to avoid single use plastic/trash/recycle properly. 🌿my vision is to both, inspire and educate people on how to save our planet. 🍽 say no to plastic straws, cutlery and styrofoam take out boxes. welcome keep cups and reusable water bottles into your life. safe the planet and zero waste your life life one step at a time. 🙌🏼

First stop upon arrival on the big island of hawaii: kīlauea. kīlauea is the longest erupting volcano on the planet, with the current eruption dating all the way back to 1983. it’s pretty exciting to witness, and hike on, the newest land on earth. lavas younger than 1,000 years cover an astonishing 90 percent of the volcano's surface and the oldest exposed lavas date back only 2,800 years. at most 600,000 years old, kīlauea is still very young for a hawaiian volcano; the oldest volcano on the island, kohala, experienced almost 900,000 years of activity before going extinct. 🌋 i took this photo of kīlauea's halemaʻumaʻu crater on my first night on the island. in native hawaiian mythology halemaʻumaʻu crater served as the body and home of pele, goddess of fire, lightning, wind, and volcanoes. check my highlighted story for a glimpse of what hiking on an active lava flow is like. 🤙🏽
