Increíble iniciativa de nuestra embajadora @danabjarner para relacionar lo que más ama con lo que más la apasiona. 💙🌊👌 #MarineConservation.

Vía @danabjarner -  Hola a todos! Este viernes 22 estaré dando nuevamente una clase de contemporáneo en @yodancestudio , pero esta clase en particular que tengo planeada es muy especial para mi💚💚 ya que uno las dos cosas que amo, la danza y el oceano🌊, la
Clase y la coreografía que esta hecha con la ayuda y especial colaboración de @colord25 y @karenmejiar serán dedicadas 100% a nuestros océanos con el fin de usar el arte de la danza como una fuerte herramienta de comunicación sobre el daño que estamos causando en el medio ambiente y crear conciencia sobre la conservación de nuestros océanos y así llegar a mas y mas gente! 
Siempre he creido que no hay nada mas especial que un bailarín use sus movimientos para comunicar o expresar algo sin necesidad de usar palabras , es por eso que quiero invitarlos a bailar por una causa y unirse a este MOVIMIENTO AZUL, y ser así, otra voz para aquellos que no la tienen🐬🐋🦈🐟.
.
la clase cuesta $3 y todos los fondos sera donados a nuestra org de conservación marina @keiko_conservation_ecuador

It's kinda funny to think that the seahorses come from the family "Hippocampus" which translates from Ancient Greek to horse sea monster! Quite funny considering they range in size from 1.5 - 36cm in length! They have always been a favourite for me for three reasons: 1. The name seahorse (I love horses) 2. Their appearance and the way they move and 3. They share the duty of pregnancy!! I hadn't seen a seahorse in years (we had no luck scoping the sea floor with @marentoor In the Maldives).So it was so exciting to come face to face with them today! . . .  #hippocampus #belize #cayecaulker #marineconservation #seahorse #mer_gypsea #mermaid #nauticam #panasonicgh4

"The Great Barrier Reef is the worlds largest and most iconic coral reef system and currently experiencing a 2017 coral bleaching event due to high water temperatures. Bleached corals may recover if temperatures drop or they may die and become algae covered deadzones. Last year (2016) 90% of the 1200 mile long reef system experienced an unprecedented coral bleach event. The extent of the 2017 bleach event is yet to be determined."

Here's Anne-Mai Wechsler, the mother of Marit Miners, one of Misool’s Co-Founders. Anne-Mai gave birth to Marit in the middle of an epic snowstorm just a stone's throw from Sweden's Arctic Circle.  She ensured that Marit's formative years were spent immersed in nature, and helped to develop a deep love for nature. 
Anne-Mai hopes that the hard work of her daughter and the rest of the Misool team means that her grandchildren can see natural wonders for themselves and grow up immersed in beauty.

Why does Misool give you hope?

Unicorn Fish get their name from the horn-like extension protruding from their rostrum. These species are widespread throughout the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and play a crucial role in reef ecosystems. 
Unicorn fish are herbivores that feed on algae and zooplankton on coral reefs, keeping them from overgrowing on the corals. These fish are popularly caught by spear-fishers, and there is a small market for them in the aquarium trade. But current levels of exploitation aren't significant enough to threaten the species with extinction, and so they are currently listed as a species of Least Concern by the IUCN Red List. .

Take only photographs,
Leave only footprints. 💖

The area is protected for conservation yet sadly people were still stepping on, stealing dead pieces and even breaking off pieces of living coral.

While we get to marvel at the stunning beauty of blue whale poo, blue whales themselves can't look back and be proud of what they have just released. Why? Because blue whale eyes only have one kind of photoreceptor - rods. What does this mean? Rods work at low light levels and need only a few bits of light (photons) to get activated. They are however useless in colour vision so rather than seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses, blue whales see it through grey-scale glasses. Us humans on the other hand have two kinds of photoreceptors - rods and cones. Cones require a lot more light to be activated but allow us to marvel at the bright red coloration of blue whale poo. Who do YOU think is the luckier mammal?

Doing #2minutebeachclean anywhere in Europe I find polystyrene as often as bottles.

I was 16 when I first saw a shark, I remember myself getting the Open Water Diver certification with my mother @sofialopez18 ❤️ in the Maldives. My life changed since then and that was the beginning of my love for sharks!
Con 16 años vi por primera vez un tiburón en las Maldivas, recuerdo que me certificaba de Open Water Diver con mi madre @sofialopez.18 ❤ Mi vida cambió desde entonces y ese fue el comienzo de mi amor por los tiburones! #sharkconservation  #sharklover  #marineconservation  #savetheocean  #marinebiology  #oceanlover  #oceanwomen  #freediving  #freedive  #MarleyTheShark  #aqualung_spt  #aqualungEspaña  #aqualungdivers  #aqualung  @aqualung_spt I was 16 when I first saw a shark, I remember myself getting the Open Water Diver certification with my mother @sofialopez18 ❤️ in the Maldives.

There are so many alternatives to plastic bags! But we particularly love these cos they're certified organic cotton. And they're sturdy, there's 1.5kg in each bag here (that's 8 oranges) They are of course washable, and ultimately fully biodegradable, after many years of faithful service. Perfect! 💚🌏👍 get them now, cos they're going fast! http://bit.ly/2w5W5qj  #plasticbagban #fruitandveg #producebags #marketbag #fruitandveggiebags #plasticfree  #notosingleuse #savetheplanet  #plasticfreeforthesea #plasticsucks #plasticpollution #environment #marineconservation #oceanconservation #saveourseas #reducereuserecycle #careforearth #lesswaste #changinghabits #zerowaste #fortheplanet #bethechange #earthfriendly #thinkgreen #waronwasteau #littlethings  #makeadifference #sustainable #climatechange #EcoAtHome

The first Eco Shark Barrier was trialled at Coogee Beach in Perth, Western Australia. After a three year trial the Local Council has decided to give it an extension of five years due to its popularity and success. Eastern states of Australia, take note! This is shark mitigation done correctly; providing an enclosure for swimmers without unnecessary harm and death to marine animals. #nomarinecull #nosharkcull #healthyoceansneedsharks #respectexistenceorexpectresistance #nowasharkcull #coogeebeachwa #ecosharkbarrier #sharkconservation #marineconservation #sharkmitigation

10Days Ago, 10 Sept 17,
I took part in Conservation Programme in Brunei called Gardening our Ocean.
There were talks and hands-ON Coral & Seagrass Propagation,marine debris and lot of Ocean conservation Learning.
🌊 I Learnt, I Experienced, I Realised, I LOVED and Understood MUCH MORE.
Anyone keen on learning and doing your part for the world and world's Ocean(Our Ocean).
"Ask and you shall receive"- God. (In this case, to Right NGOs and dedicated Borneo Eco-Warrior People)

Well, Summarise,
Our Ocean is SEASICK. We,Humans,are the #1 contributor to BOTH, 💥 Destruction and 💚🔱⛑ Conservation!

So to Everyone, SEAS the Day!
Reduce, Recycle, Refuse, Remember & REPEAT!

The marks and scars of battles of the deep 🐳🌚🌏 Love seeing the skin of a sperm whale up close, spying on their wrinkly grey skin covered in scars from encounters on their deep dives with cookie cutter sharks and giant squid. So much respect for these majestic and ginormous creatures 🌊🐋

We have had a great few days with these hardworking  students from Kirwan State High School in Australia! In their action weekend with the Gili Eco Trust, they have learnt about our beautiful coral reefs and the dangers to them and to mitigate that they built a beautiful new Biorock artifical reef to sink and then carried on with a zero waste workshop to limit the amount of plastic  bags used on Gili Trawangan. 
Lucky to have all this help from enthusiastic youth to help promote sustainable tourism on Gili Trawangan.

@boogsrosales and I were so blessed to witness a pair of rainbows just beyond the Hundred Caves of Puerto Princesa (the other rainbow is a bit fainted on the left of the prominent one). #studioh2o #onassignment #puertoprincesa #hundredcaves

Killer whales show considerable size dimorphism. Adult males develop larger pectoral fins, dorsal fins, tail flukes and girths than females. Heres one of the Bremer killer whales showing us some tail slap 💥🐳

News from the Mallacoota Crew
Spring has sprung  and the forecast for the day of our 'Coota Crews planned Debris Collection day at Tamboon Inlet in Croajingolong National Park (Far East Gippsland) was a toasty 24 degrees (which is toasty for Victoria) before a cool change predicted for the rest of the week. As they say in the game ... one must make hay while the sun shines ... or in our case it was fill as many debris bags as possible with a two Womble crew before the wind came up. Tamboon Inlet is situated in  a remote area on the coast from Cann River with approx. twenty houses along the shores of the Inlet. The 'village' is surrounded by native bush, sweeping lake views, a pristine coast line that boasts 'Point Hicks' lighthouse and a kick-arse sand dune that spills into the estuary. The 8 bags of rubbish collected (33Kgs) throughout the day was primarily hard plastic fragments, old plastic bottles, polystyrene foam with the odd usual culprit (lighters, Rope and glass bottles) to keep it interesting. The most challenging part of the day was avoiding a very sleepy Red-Bellied Black Snake that was doing its best to avoid us but seemed to keep finding itself in the way (unless there was more than one ???) The most exciting find of the day was a Paper Nautilus Shell ... an egg casing from a argonauts a pelagic octopus (Sometimes Neptune sends a little 'Thankyou') The most rewarding part of the day though was bagging and binning 8 bags of Marine Debris that just doesn't belong in our ocean.
Thank you to Julie and her awesome crew for all the work they do!

If you go out into the ocean and see a shark, it is a privilege. Unfortunately "shark moments" are far and few between in some areas, as populations are being decimated due to #bycatch and #culling. Did you know that over 11,000 sharks are killed PER HOUR?? Spread the word about shark product toxicity, decrease your seafood consumption, and push government officials to pass laws that protect sharks, not kill more of them out of ignorance. #savesharks #saynotosharkfinsoup #saynotosharkproducts #sharklove #marineconservation #sharkconservation #kaikoa

You never really know what's coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can really do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drown in its monstrosity. - Alysha Speer 🌊🌊🌊 #waves #surfing

Do you know how a flamingo tongue snail gets its spots? The pattern comes from the snail's own live tissue that covers the outside of the shell!
