#TurtleTuesday#DidYouKnow ? When green sea turtles graze, they increase the productivity and nutrient content of seagrass blades. Without constant grazing, seagrass beds become overgrown and obstruct currents, shade the bottom, grin to decompose and provide suitable habitat for the growth of slime molds. In addition, older portions of seagrass beds tend to be overgrown with microorganisms, algae, invertebrates and fungi. Hawksbill sea turtles are equipped with beak-like mouths, they feed on a variety of marine sponges. By doing this, they change the species composition and distribution of sponges in coral reef ecosystems. Sponges compete aggressively for space with reef-building corals. By removing sponges from reefs, hawksbills allow other species, such as coral, to colonize and grow. Without hawksbills, sponges are likely to dominate reef communities, further limiting the growth of corals and modifying the very structure of coral reef ecosystems. #savethereef#savetheturtles
🙊The Incinerator is back on the past few mornings. Typically it runs on foggy days/when it rains or random times throughout the year to stay within their emissions regulations. (Google it, they often don’t) When I see it burning into my ozone, I become very angry. “I wonder if other people are becoming angry around me?” And then I think about what is being burned. 💡it is my trash or my neighbors trash, or my neighbors neighbors trash down the street or in the next counties. Maybe only a select amount of that trash is actually coming from Detroit, but they have to suffer it’s pollution.
Not anymore. We can starve this by limiting or waste and being conscious with our purchasing, every damn day.
Your trash is either being incinerated, put in a landfill, recycled, or is litter. 👁
Being eco-conscious is the only way for our earth to sustain. #EFFplastic#EcoFriendlyFriends#starvethebeast#zerowaste#plasticfree#sustainableliving#detroit#pollutionfree
Pretty cool, a mama turtle rolled up on this beach early this morning and left like 80 eggs, but she took off too quick without burying the eggs so these peeps took action and did what needed to be done to protect them. For the record, I won't front, I had 0% to do with saving these eggs (well let's give me 1% for cheering them on), but it was still cool to see🤙😎🤙 #savingturtles#savetheturtles
📷 Photographer @marioentero uses underwater imagery to highlight plastic pollution and its impacts on marine fauna. Here's his accompanying statement, "The ocean brought us to LIFE and we gave it back the worst -- 115 million tons of plastic trash by 2025 -- 15 million square kilometers of plastic waste. How many years must elapse before the day we will be living on the top of plastics or UNDER IT? When a new element is introduced into an ecosystem, the last one inevitably changes. In the case of the ocean, we speak of DEATH and LOSS. Diseases transported, such as cholera, by new migrations of the marine inhabitants; endangered species trapped by plastic or dying by their consumption; fish eating plastic that ends in the intestines of humans and more than 600 marine species... in 20 years the damage will be IRREVERSIBLE. The ocean is dying. We are dying. STOP DEVASTATING THE OCEAN. WE ARE ALL GUILYS. YOU TOO"
