Water is what every creature needs to survive and the mankind is wasting it all the time. It's very sad, that we destroy that beautiful planet everyday a little bit more.
We deforest the rainforest; which is the lung of the earth, we overfish the oceans and eradicate species of so many animals and plants.
We overconsume without thinking about where it comes from. Everything has to grow somewhere, has to get feed, has to get water,etc.... The demand is big and the earth is not big enough to feed all this fat asses with their burgers.
We need a change! We must change! We need to talk about the biggest issue.
9500 liter water for 450gr. Beef.
The earth is so fantastic and i want that other humans which also care about the environment, can see the earth like we do in the future.
Don't close your eyes. Little steps are better then non.
Plastic pollution is a major threat to the ocean, an ecosystem which is already under pressure due to human activities and climate change.
For example, coral reefs already face stress from ocean acidification, rising sea surface temperatures and overfishing (Veron et al., 2009). However, a recent study has reported that if coral reefs come in contact with plastic, their chance of catching a disease increases from 4% to 89% (Lamb et al., 2018). This is because plastic harbors a lot of pathogens which can cause disease outbreaks.
It is estimated that there are over 11 billion pieces of plastic on reefs across the Asia-Pacific (Lamb et al., 2018). In addition, the Coral Triangle which holds the world's highest levels of marine biodiversity is at the greatest risk of plastic pollution (Lasut et al., 2017). This will degrade the health of reefs, have harmful knock-on impacts on other marine food-webs, and negatively impact human livelihoods. Therefore, management is essential to help clean up our oceans and prevent the collapse of marine ecosystems.
Let’s try and refuse single-use plastics and recycle - if we all make small decisions in our daily lives it can have a great impact!

Check out this extremely rare behavioral of Galapagos shark courtship behavior documented on one of our pelagic research dives! Following behavior similar to this can also be considered an agnostic territorial display in competition for dominance depending on the context of the interaction, but based on accounts of this type of behavior in other species it was clearly a sign of courtship. Relatively little is known about the pre-copulatory or courtship behavior of Galapagos sharks, however, this type of behavior has been observed with multiple species of elasmobranchs with males following closely behind females with heir snouts almost in contact with a females tail (Helfman & Burgess 2014). Some hypothesize females may be releasing pheromones which males are capable of detecting which leads to following. Similar behavior has also been documented in basking sharks (Harvey-Clark et al. 1999) which observed nose-to-tail following behavior, close and persistent physical association of two or more animals engaged in circling behavior as they followed each other before sequentially sinking below the surface at short intervals. We have yet to observe the act of mating at our site but it has been documented in other species. Video by @juansharks

We are used to fear what we don’t know and understand. Especially when the traditional media has been telling us we have every reason to fear. But the truth is they profit on that fear! Sharks aren’t blood thirsty killers. They are predators but we can share the space the water with them as long as we know how to understand them. Thank you @bleeve21 for sharing your peaceful experience out in the water with us.
When I tell people I went swimming with sharks without a cage, the first reaction I get is usually “Are you crazy??” or something along those lines. I tell them that I was equally excited and nervous the first time I went out with One Ocean. Next, I explain that they are a marine research and conservation organization. So they educate you about sharks on the way to the site and once we reached the site my nerves had gone and I was beyond stoked to get in the water.
Last month I got to go on my third trip with @oneoceandiving. I learn something new every time about sharks, the vital role sharks play in our oceans and overall ecosystems, behavior, and traits. They are also trying to disprove the myth that sharks are man eaters/hunters like the movies.
Being in the water with the sharks, I’m cautious, as you should be, but the excitement and amazement were the dominant feelings.
If you’re on Oahu, I definitely recommend going out with One Ocean. They’ll take great care of you and you’ll learn more about some amazing creatures.

I like to believe my awareness on the world around me has grown these past couple of years & if I’ve learned anything is that we should be more conscious consumers. With a society telling us that we need more and more things with the highest convenience as possible, it’s easy to get sucked into consumerism, buying lots of materialistic things that we don’t need and blindly purchasing food or clothing without blinking an eye at where it may come from. There are so many environmental issues, but I’ve noticed that a lot of the problems link back to blind and excessive consuming. Let’s all work on 1) Living with Less & 2) Asking Questions and Thinking Mindfully when it comes to what we buy. Our choices effect the world around us. #mindfulliving#sustainableliving#compassionoverconvenience Photo by @tahenley
Esse é João Luiz, que essa semana enquanto realizava o monitoramento de um lobo-marinho-subantartico (Arctocephalus tropicalis), se aproximou e começou a querer saber um pouco mais sobre o animal. Foram alguns minutos de conversa e muito aprendizado. Pouco antes de partir ele me presenteou com um desenho de seu amigo Spyke (nome que o próprio deu ao lobo), me deu um abraço apertado e agradeceu dizendo que ia falar tudo que aprendeu aos seus amigos, colegas e professora.
Isso tudo me fez refletir muito nos últimos dias, principalmente que jamais devemos perder a esperança da conservação do ambiente marinho e sempre que possível disseminar o conhecimento em prol da causa.
It kills me how much plastic we use in this house. A lot of it we can choose to buy or not buy, but there is also SO much that is out of our control. The majority of Andy’s essential medical stuff is plastic and I can’t really see how there would be an alternative for most of it.
So over the past year I have been trying, bit by bit to find other ways to cut down our plastic consumption. This is probs my fav one so far. Toilet roll. @whogivesacraptp don’t use plastic for packaging, they give 50% of profits to help build toilets, only use 100% bamboo and recycled toilet paper and make your bathroom a little brighter.
What I also love about this stuff is how it has actually brought a little group of people from NI together. Random I know but thanks to @doyourbit.ni I have been introduced to some lovely new people and visited great places (@indiefude & @barabakehouse) to pick up my boxes. I think that is pretty good use of time of these squares🙌🏼 If you would like to get in on the next order, contact @doyourbit.ni to be added to the list, it arrives within a couple of days and we save money by ordering together!
Loving the new colours @whogivesacraptp 👌🏼
It takes time to live a complete plastic free lifestyle. Living in a convenient world where everything we want to eat either on the go or as a treat unfortunately comes wrapped in disposable non recyclable plastic. Instead of trying to do everything at once, try reassessing and understanding the issue in a visual manner. By collecting your disposable plastic used over a months period will really help you to gain realistic insight into what you are using. Keep it as a reminder, and the next time you shop have this in mind. Trust me, it works. Not only have I done this to help with my cut back on my favourite foods but instead of buying them now I try to create my own recipes based on what I was buying to reduce waste. The plastic collected won’t go to waste either: there are so many uses for it around the house and in the garden, not to mention with Xmas just around the corner, plastic is great for creating Xmas decorations.
