oneoceanglobal A very powerful message from #oneoceanglobal ambassador @kennaaloha πŸ’™πŸ™πŸΌπŸ¬πŸ˜’ ・・・ convenience kills 🐬 // what's more important: convenience or compassion? ♥️ it's estimated that approximately 100,000 marine animals die from plastic debris each year! this isn't the "natural life cycle" or "something we can't control". this is real. this is happening. and it's because of humans...us. you. me. why are we destroying all of creation when we should be its *caretakers* instead? ♥οΈπŸ˜‰ let's all grow together in our #empathy and #compassion and work together to #savetheocean 🌊 // #reduce #reuse #singleuseplastic

oneoceanglobal Check out our partners and ambassadors @savinwildlifeproject post! help save seals! #saveseals #kelpbeds ・・・ can you spot the harbor seal? πŸ˜‰ we ended up having two curiously sticking around and taking a look at us in the la jolla kelp beds πŸ’š these kelp beds help provide nutrition for so many animals and protection for these seals against white sharks. without kelp, there wouldn't be dense biodiversity in this ecosystem. one thing that could decimate kelp beds would be an oil spill, preventing light to p*******e the water and impeding kelp from growing. right now, there is a bill, hr4239, that could harm our very own wildlife here in la jolla by allowing offshore drilling on our coasts. the animals, however, are not the only ones at risk. entire fishing communities up and down our california coast are in danger from a potential oil spill. and the thing with oil spills is not if one will happen, but when one will happen. #protectwhatyoulove and contact @darrellissa to make sure he votes against this bill! in addition, stay tuned on the homepage of our website to post your very own comment on the draft proposed program that will be released to the pacific coast. (link will be in our bio soon). please go and comment once it's up! πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’™πŸŒŠπŸŒŽ #lajolla #kelpbeds #kelp #harborseal #seal #california #sandiego #ocean #wildlife #education #conservation #research #protectourcoast #nooffshoredrilling #speakup #actnow #act @oceana @bradyorca @namsundri @oneoceanglobal @savinwildlifeproject

#repost @oceanramsey #oneoceandiving #waterinspired πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆ ・・・ #whiteshark and diver. love this video, the rarely highlighted fact that #greatwhitesharks swim past people on a regular basis. absolute testament to their sensory systems that it did not try to taste him, this guy looks like a seal and is prying #abalone which are hemophiliacs and so there would be #marineanimal blood scenting the water too. i would never advise to dive in bad visibility because sharks rely on eyesight too and this one came in closer to inspect, luckily and obviously eyesight is not the only sense they rely on, they have at least 7 sensory systems. things like this go on without making the news because often time people don’t see them and rarely does someone have a camera in the place and time. if sharks wanted to eat us it would be extremely easy. not saying they are puppies, they are not, and even puppies bite, and lucky for us they are far more intelligent. they are not malicious and they take in multiple factors before taking action, something many humans could learn a lot from. i would strongly advise against diving in this bad of visibility and if an accident were to happen if you choose to ignore environmental conditions please don’t blame the shark, it’s just doing its job and this guy really does look like easy prey. #apexpredatornotmonster #savewhitesharks not a #sharkattack #sharksareamazing #sharkbehavior #sharkanddiver #sharkingreenwater #sharkalmostbite #sharkinsouthafrica #sharkandabalonediver #abalonediver #abalonediving #lookaround #respectsharks #savesharks #helpsavesharks video repost from #denisdempsey 1st seen on ig on @whitesharkvideo

Great video by @nataliekparra of @keiko_conservation of what to look for on the reef when doing a #reef #cleanup! the fishing line can wrap around the reef suffocating it or get wrapped around marine life like #seaturtles or #monkseals. when removing fishing line be sure to cut the line and not pull it which can further damage the reef. it’s also great practice for #freediving! πŸŒπŸŒŠπŸ¦ˆβœ¨πŸƒπŸ’ #cleanyobeach say no to #singleusesucks #oneoceanglobal #waterinspired #keikoconservation #fishing #debris #freedive #divedeeper #onebreath #oneocean

#heartwrenching footage from our friend @paulnicklen of @sea_legacy ・・・ my entire @sea_legacy team was pushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear. it’s a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but i know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. this is what starvation looks like. the muscles atrophy. no energy. it’s a slow, painful death. when scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, i think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. there is no band aid solution. there was no saving this individual bear. people think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. the simple truth is this—if the earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. this large male bear was not old, and he certainly died within hours or days of this moment. but there are solutions. we must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the earth—our home—first. please join us at @sea_legacy as we search for and implement solutions for the oceans and the animals that rely on them—including us humans. thank you your support in keeping my @sea_legacy team in the field. with @cristinamittermeier #turningthetide with @sea_legacy #bethechange #nature #naturelovers

oneoceanglobal Important message from #oneoceanglobal ambassador @nomadoceanproject πŸ’™ #theresstillhope ・・・ “there is good news: ten percent of the big fish still remain; half the coral reefs are still in pretty good shape – a jeweled belt around the middle of the planet. there are still places in the sea as pristine as i knew as a child. our ocean is at a tipping point, which means we still have a chance to tip things back in the right direction – if we act now.” after sitting in the environment court and listening to a fight over tipping point or no-tipping point, i cannot but agree more with @earlesylvia (pic for on her fb). more about the environment case and why tipping point or no tipping point shouldn’t be the question here and in the link of the bio: https://nomadocean.org/2017/12/tipping-point-non-word-of-the-year/ • • • • #tippingpoint #naturelove #oceanoptimism #oneoceanglobalambassador #oneoceanglobal #instafish #ilovediving #biology #fishporn #island #sustainability #eco #environment #oceanlove #oceangang #oceanic #oceanwater #ecowarrior #saveourseas #saveouroceans #oceanblue #oceania #oceanlife #oceans #openwater #marinelife #marineprotection

oneoceanglobal #beautifulblue & words by @oneoceanglobal ambassador @kimtenw πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆ we love #bluesharks ・・・ an elegant blue shark passes below. as peaceful as it seems to be, it is. being in the water with these beautiful animals is the best thing there is. nevertheless, they are being brought to extinction at a disturbing pace. misunderstood, hated, seen as food, killed out of fear or for a bowl of soup. anyone who has been in the water with these magnificent, impressive, wonderful creatures will know that once you get underwater with them, you’re just struck with a sense of awe and wonder. and you’ll fall in love. let’s unite and protect the sharks and make sure our kids and their kids can still enjoy these wonders of nature. . . #helpsavesharks #savesharks #bansharkfinning #sharkwater #thanksnature #underwater photography #underwaterworld #blackandwhiteunderwater #bwphotography #blueshark #waterlust #wanderlust #nauticam #duiken #diving #sharkdiving #nakaweproject #nakawewarriors #gameoverfishing #whatreallymatters #olympuscamera #makewaves #missionblue #projectaware #shark #lightrays #oneoceanglobal #oneoceanconservation

#letsgrowtogether #changestartshere #endplastic via #oneoceanglobal ambassador @kennaaloha πŸ’™ ・・・ just a quick little video i put together 😜🌎reduce your single use by bringing your own cup (or in my case, a mason jar) and reusable straw whenever you go out. πŸ™‚πŸŒŽ i've found some places are pretty cool about letting me use my own cup. very happy see that some places are open to it. but i'm still hoping we can help places provide reusable cups for people not on-the-go anyway, so i won't even need to bring my own at some point.😊 reduce and reuse. it's a great habit to develop because you'll be helping the ocean and the animals and still have a delicious beverage all at the same time! πŸŒŠπŸ‘πŸ½change starts with you. πŸ’™ πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™ #oneoceanglobal edit: i've gotten a bit of pushback and criticism on this video, on this post and various reposts. just for you all to know, 1) my straw is reusable as stated in my caption above 2) i am aware some places still don't accept this due to health violations; the places where i've used my own cup are usually okay with it as long as the cup is *clean* and that i remove the lid and straw while they make the beverage. 3) i am currently working on trying to get places to provide and advertise reusable cups for people not getting their drinks to-go, so we won't even need to bring our own cup 4) please see beyond the surface and realize that i am trying to do what i can to help the environment. these are my efforts. if this effort bothers you, please help me change the norm by convincing places to provide reusable cups or helping change the rules about using your own cup. otherwise, i would appreciate it if you didn't waste time leaving a negative comment. ;) mahalo. #howto #recycle #singleuseplastic keep reusable items in your car!

oneoceanglobal Heartbreaking post from our cofounder @oceanramsey πŸ’™ ・・・ out of the country and just got these images from my dear friend @keoniashley back home in #haleiwa he found these endangered scalloped hammerhead pups on the beach with their throats slit. it’s heart breaking to see wasteful killing and animal cruelty. i have had one of those weeks were the very negative side of humanity and it’s impacts on innocent animals have been made repeatedly pervasive in places very close to home. i’m very much sleep deprived from trying to do what i could to help some of them but i had to leave for this project. i know everywhere in the world has its own issues but usually in hawaii we don’t see so much of this #disrespect for #manō #sharks. i am generally a very positive and optimistic person i think because it’s necessary to keep moving forward and it helps i surround myself with good, inspiring, incredible people like keoni and his #amazing ohana, my many amazing seasters and the whole #oneoceanteam both in #hawaii and through @oneoceanglobal . i find that doing outreach in schools really helps pump me up on work in conservation because our efforts today will make the greatest difference for the younger generations and they are excited to learn and very sympathetic and receptive to treating animals and nature with care and respect. keoni told me his sweet little daughters kept asking if they could put the baby hammerheads back in the water and help them swim again πŸ’” please respect #life and please consider your actions and the impacts they might have on others. a discarded bag, fishingline, or #rope can end up around an animals body slowly killing it. #tigersharkwithrope killing baby sharks for no reason at all and just further decimating populations, what does that do for these younger generations and the health of the ecosystems that all life relies on. #itsyourchoice #staypositive #bethechange #speakup #makeapositiveimpact #consciousconsumer all photos ©οΈ @keoniashley #teamoneocean please repost and share a message of respect not waste #forthefuture #helpsavealife #helpsavesharks #savetheocean #oneoceanteam

oneoceanglobal #oneoceanglobalambassador @kennaaloha πŸ’™ ・・・ sharks are very aware of their surroundings. they have a set of tubes from their head to their tail called a lateral line, which detects motion, vibration, and pressure changes in the water. it's similar to we feel the wind on our necks: we can sense which direction the wind is coming from and how strong it is blowing. sharks also have tiny jelly-filled pores on their nose called ampullae of lorenzini. these give sharks electrorecption, or the ability to detect electrical outputs from all living beings. you know how dolphins use echolocation to find their prey? well, sharks use their ampullae. the ampullae helps sharks investigate potential prey or unidentified objects 🦈 it may seem a bit unnerving at first to know that sharks have these extra senses. however, it actually should be comforting that sharks have these abilities and that they're so immensely intelligent. reminder: we're not sharks' natural prey items. these additional abilities help them distinguish the difference between "prey" and "not prey", and therefore, nearly no mistakes are made. sharks aren't man-eating monsters that eat whatever and whenever they want. they're so much more beautifully complex than that. πŸ’™ they are fascinating creatures and i hope we can all view them that way at some point. πŸ™πŸ½ #savesharks #oneoceanglobal #oneocean #sharkconservation #sharkdiving

oneoceanglobal Beautiful message about sharks from #oneoceanglobalambassador @lizoic! statistically you’re more likely to be bitten by an #newyorker than by a #shark! βš οΈπŸ™ ・・・ did you know annually selfies k**l more people than sharks...bet you aren’t afraid of selfies. you also have a 1 in 6,905 chance of dying from a gunshot compared to the 1 in 3,748,067 chance of dying from a shark attack. in fact a significantly larger number of people are killed every year from falling than by sharks. truth be told you have a 1 in 114 chance of being killed in a car. numbers are scary, but they’re true. so ask yourself the next time you find yourself fearing something. is it because of a legitimate reason or because it’s what you’re fed to believe surrounding that idea. i am no one to say sharks l are safe, of course they aren’t. they’re wild animals after all and it would be wrongful for me to dismiss those who have been attacked by them. what i’m saying is acknowledge and respect their importance to our planet. everyone getting into the water should be aware that they are no longer in their territory and that we enter at our own risk. 🦈🌊@oneoceanglobal #savesharks #oceangaurdian #oneoceanglobal #oneoceandiving #oneoceanglobalambassador #savetheocean #respectthefin #oceanconservation
