Considera-se sexta-feira só depois que eu dormir, então está valendo o #tbt 🤙🏻 . . Um dos dias mais incríveis da minha vida! Encontramos 38 tartaruguinhas praticamente mortas na areia da praia :( pegamos uma a uma e colocamos nessa “lagoinha” improvisada até que retomassem suas forças para seguir seu caminho 🌊 alô Projeto Tamar, tamo junto me contrata! Haha #tartaruga#tartarugamarinha#seaturtle#ceara#brasilsilsil#shorei
This was such a cool experience! Despite living in Florida since I was 9 I've never seen this. By the end we had 8 people using flashlights to guide these little ones away from the city and to the sea. Such a humbling night. #seaturtle
This plastic sea turtle @ripleysaquaca was made from 200 plastic bags! 9 million kg of plastic enters our Great Lakes each year, mostly from storm runoff, wastewater or lakeshore litter. PLASTIC FISH ANYONE? U of Toronto research reveals that microplastics have been discovered in every single fish collected from Lakes Ontario, Erie and Superior ranging from tiny bits of tire dust, microfibers from clothing, glitter, plastic bottles and microbeads found in face wash. I know plastic Is needed for medical devices and hygiene, but.....Every fish?! Ugh!
The beauty of Chelonia mydas.
Sea turtles are magnificent creatures that have graced our oceans for million of years. Truly an inspiration-they are survivors, and encountering one is no less than swimming with millions of years of evolution.
Let it not be on our watch, or from our complacency, that their existence flickers out. #freedive#sony#seaturtle#saveseaturtles
