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
Pd: habra una mini charla asi que lleguen temprano y si pueden venir con ropa de tonos azules seria increíble, graciaas los espero💙💙
Arte por: @humbeats_ecuador 💪🏻
When a storms coming and you've left ya washing on the line 🙃
On a side note, I saw a species of whale today I've never seen before. It's name rhymes with stinky. 10 points to Gryffindor if you can guess what it was 😂

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. .

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?
So it turns out jetlag is a very real thing.. I've been up since 4am this morning but because it's raining & grey here in England I didn't get to see the sunrise 😬 Can someone just take me back to Bali already plz

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 🌊🐋
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!
For the Oceans
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
