Today i swam with bull sharks. not only did i finally do something i have forever dreamed of, but i realized my love for sharks grew significantly. (yes, it’s possible) i saw one with a fishing line stuck in her fin, which our captain tried to remove, but she wouldn’t allow it. unfortunately, it’s a very common thing. i want to use my experience to bring awareness to the issue with ghost nets and fishing lines, as well as the grace and majesty that sharks are forever displaying. they are truly marvelous creatures. and these are supposed to be the most aggressive ones! #bansportfishing#banfishingnets#savethesharks#savetheocean#sharkawareness#sharkappreciation
Exploring cebu had highs and lows, the inequality of wealth within the world is a heavy reality, also the consistency of pulling plastic from in the ocean and watching single use waste flood the streets of our earth just encourages my drive to promote #planetorplastic ... oslob was the perk for chasing waterfalls and being lucky enough to swim with whale sharks while they were being fed! the majestically giant creatures almost couldn't fit in the photos. successful adventure but happy to be home🕉
This has me in tears, sharks are my favourite animal and seeing them being treated like this breaks my heart how could someone do this to such a beautiful animal and actually laugh about it you must be sick right? i can’t stop thinking about how scared that poor shark was and how much pain it was in. imagine it was you being pulled like that by that bout..would you like it?...no would you be scared?....yes would you be in pain...yes. the bottom line is that shark felt all of those things. just because it’s an animal makes it ok to abuse a animals quick question would you do this to your children these people make me sick. i hope they burn in hell for what they did to this poor shark 😞🙏😭 #savethesharks#savetheocean#fuckanimalabuse@michaelwenzel go tell this man how bad of a person he is
Salve galera, as meninas da @saltysisters_ soltaram o vídeo feito por elas sobre o evento '2050', com um pouquinho do que rolou aqui em maresias no último sábado, em breve soltaremos o vídeo ofical do evento, obrigado @virgferraz pelas imagens e edição💙💚🌍🏄♂️💪😀 agradecemos a todos que fortalecem nossa luta e acreditam em um futuro melhor.
Uma imagem vale mais que mil palavras. enquanto nós acharmos que é “só” um canudo, um copo ou uma sacola, essa será uma triste realidade! tomar consciência dos nossos atos agora, é mais importante que nunca 🌎 #savetheocean#noplastic#rethinkplastic
each plastic straw that is used ends up in our landfills or oceans, unable to biodegrade and harming the creatures that come into contact with it. not long ago a photo of a sea turtle with a straw stuck up it’s nose went viral and raised awareness on this straw controversy. now people and places and even entire countries have been dedicated to going straw-free and all our little honus are smiling at us.
little things like this that are so prominent in our everyday lives are so hard to pay attention to, until we see the results. you’re on your way to work on a hot day, you want an iced coffee or an iced tea to start your day: plastic straw. you order a drink from any fast-food or restaurant/bar establishment, chances are you’re getting a single use plastic straw with that. you can say no, but sometimes they just give it to you and then you’re trapped with the idea that you’re probably gonna hurt another turtle.
there are so many alternatives to single use plastic straws! aside from the compostable or biodegradable straws, or paper straws, there’s straws you can keep on you at all times!
there’s glass, metal, bamboo, etc. these are becoming more and more prominent in stores and establishments, and it’s making our straw controversy a lot easier to manage.
i keep mine in a little bag in my purse, and whenever i need it i bring it out and pop it into my drink, then once i’m home i can clean it and voilà, i’m living a single use plastic straw free life and saving turtle noses.
check out your local health food store or market and you’re bound to find one that’s perfect for you. do your part! i believe in you!
