Conservation efforts are very important to help saving our oceans and the animals within, so much money has been put into and alot of research as been done to make a positive impact. This is just a small piece of what has been done within a Spanish of 4 years. #saveourseas#saveouroceans#conservation#savetheanimals
'Recently, #TEPCO announced that it would dump 770,000 tons of #radioactive tritium water into the #PacificOcean .
According to Mozhgan Savabieasfahani, an environmental toxicologist and winner of the 2015 Rachel Carson prize, "The release of thousands of tons of radioactive tritium by a giant utility company into our aquatic and natural environments is a blood-chilling prospect," Savabieasfahani told Truthout.
She questions why there is not more outrage from those in the #Japanese government who are responsible for safeguarding the #health and wellbeing of the general #public . "Where are the defenders of our public's health?" she asked. "If they could pull the plug out of their mouth, they could tell us that tritium is a toxic radioactive isotope of hydrogen, and that, once released, tritium cannot be removed from the environment. Let that sink in." "The Decision Has Already Been Made"
Takashi Kawamura, TEPCO's chairman, when asked about the decision to introduce this vast amount of radioactive water into the ocean, initially responded, "The decision has already been made." While he quickly softened the statement, he has not stated that the action will not occur.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority (#NRA ), Shunichi Tanaka, has claimed that tritium is of little danger to humans and supports TEPCO's plans to dump the water into the ocean.' ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

❝Now it's happened once or twice
Someone couldn't pay the price
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em 'cross the coals
Yes I've had the odd complaint
But on the whole I've been a saint
To those poor unfortunate souls❞ -Ursula
Happy Sunday poor unfortunate souls, hope everyone has a magical day😘
I received this ring for free on www.SaveOurOceansNow.com
WHO THEY ARE:
We are a socially-minded online shop whose founders are passionate about the ocean! We raise awareness about issues affecting our oceans and run an online shop of products featuring many marine animals whose habitat is under attack or who are threatened by commercial fishing or global warming.
If you want to get this ring, it's free but you have to pay for shipping which is around $6ish (the US, I am not sure if it changes for international)
Ps. There's also other
beautiful, funny, and quirky ocean-related products. Some are free while the others aren't so go take a look and sea 😹 what you find😘
It's so sad looking back at photos like this - it's not the Great Barrier Reef we all know and love! But there are things we can do to try and turn the tide.⠀
Since Sundays are meant for relaxing on the couch, check out @chasingcoral on Netflix. It's hard to watch in parts, but its about an important environmental problem in our oceans, told through the eyes of people trying to make a difference. And it's that last bit, the human connection, that always motivates me to do more...#chasingcoral

In Ontario, where I currently live, every grocery store has reusable bags for purchase at the checkout, and plastic bags also have a small fee of usually 5 cents. However, I realised that isn't the case everywhere in Canada!
How is it where you guys live? Do you guys see most people around you using plastic or reusable?
Plastic constitutes about 90% of all trash floating on the ocean's surface. We want to change the way the world consumes. VOTE & SHARE our SXSW Panel Picker idea 💡Agents of Mass Construction! Link in bio 💚🌎♻️ #plasticpollution#socialchange .
We know plastic is deadly to marine life.
Take the step and join the #saynotoplastic movement!
Easiest way to start is to refuse single use plastics like straws and plastic bags.
It'll take some repitition, but saying "no, thanks" will come naturally soon enough!

Status: Near threatened ⠀
Striped Marlin is an amazing species of billfish. Unfortunately, they may soon become a threatened species if humans continue to catch them as commercial game fish. Due to this reason, various organizations around the world are taking initiatives to stop the edible uses of these fish.⠀
Striped Marlin is not included in the IUCN “Red List” of threatened species. However, Greenpeace International has included these commercial game fish in their seafood red list in 2010 as the numbers of these Marlins are declining due to overfishing. Commercial fishing of these fish has become illegal in many regions. People who catch these fish for recreational purposes are being encouraged to throw them back to water rather than consume them or sell them.⠀
