A huge thanks to ufudu turtle tours for taking us out tonight. Loggerhead and leatherback turtles found nesting on the beaches of Sodwana. Ufudu turtle tours and shark life are the major contributors to conservation efforts in the area. Both will be working closely with small steps surfing by taking the kids out to view these animals and forming part of our educational aspect of the program. #oceanconservation #turtles #sodwana #ufuduturtletours @duanswart @naturist_goose

Diving with Sperm Whales, you’d like to do it ? 😍 #Didyouknow Sperm Whales are World-class divers. The mammals have been recorded descending to depths of over 3,280 feet and can go 90 minutes between breaths.🐋 by @keriwilk #sperwhales #oceanconservation #saveouroceans #passportocean #diving #scubadiving #underwaterphoto #underwaterlife

"Roxy" the tiger shark here is making a few moves to snatch @oceanramsey’ GoPro. This moment may look super intense and dangerous but Ocean is in total control through out this interaction. This shark is not going after Ocean but rather just stimulated by her GoPro. Ocean has been working with sharks world wide for 15 years as marine biologist and a shark conservationist. Tiger sharks rarely behave like this. 80 percent of my encounters with tiger sharks are extremely peaceful as tiger sharks are generally very shy, calculated, and non confrontational 📸 by @juansharks #ApexPredatorNotMonster  #coexist #tigershark #saveouroceans #saveourseas #ocean #shark #sharkweek #passportocean #oceanconservation #givethemachance

#Repost @hannahmermaid ・・・ 🐳~JOINING THE WHALE POD!~🐋 Photo by @shawnheinrichs Model: @hannahmermaid ' #Swimming way out in the ocean and looking down at the endless #blue depths, gorgeous rays of sunlight sparkling down into the endless #depths of the ocean, I saw a huge mother whale begin to surface underneath me, getting larger and larger! I realized I could end up in the whale's blowhole, or its mouth and I didn't know what to do! But the #whales seemed so aware of their own size, and they came up within a couple of feet of me. You can feel intelligence emanating from them. You look them in the eye and there's this ancient consciousness looking back. I knew at that moment that I would put my life on the line to #protect these creatures. I felt so #grateful that even after hundreds of years of humans decimating their species, they’re still so curious, interactive and #joyful. ~ Hannah 🐳 Whaling is cruel and unnecessary and must stop! Commercial whaling is banned internationally. Trade in whale products is forbidden and demand is falling. Yet, every year, Japan, Norway and Iceland kill around 1,500 whales between them. There is no humane way to kill a whale at sea. Many die a slow, painful death. This slaughter is pointless. 🐳 Here’s a TO DO LIST on how you can help: https://www.wikihow.com/Help-Stop-Whaling 🐳 Search online for petitions to sign to 'End Whaling' 🐋 I support www.BlueSphereFoundation.org 🐋 -Japan has completed its whaling season in the northwest Pacific Ocean having killed 177 #whales in 2017. In the 2016 season Japanese whalers took 333 minke whales in the Southern #Ocean, almost 200 of them pregnant females. While Japan is a signatory to the (IWC) moratorium on whale hunting, Tokyo exploits a loophole each year by saying its hunt is 'scientific research' 😢 . #love #Hannahmermaid #hannahfraser #shawnheinrichs #mermaid #❤️ #realmermaid #underwaterperformer #underwater #underwaterphotography #swim #dive #breathhold #apnea #freedive #water #planetocean #oceaninspired #oceanconservation

What does ‘ocean literate’ mean to you ? Tomorrow is the first official gathering for a new project and adventure seeking to accelerate ocean literacy in the UK public.

A study done by Broderick, A. et al tracked post-nesting green and loggerhead sea turtles during their migration. They found that the migratory routes used by these sea turtles to go back to their foraging ground was continually similar (Broderick, A. et al 2007). Similar to natal homing these sea turtles also returned to the same foraging ground (none of the individuals studied visited different foraging grounds). What is interesting is that the scientists discovered that during "over wintering" months these sea turtles returned to their foraging ground but just moved to deeper water (Broderick, A. et al 2007). This also meant longer resting times with a recorded dive time of 10.2 hours by a loggerhead (Broderick,A. et al)! 📸 by @clarklittle of a Hawaiian Green sea turtle @littleoceantours _________________________ Check us out at OneOceanDiving.com & JOIN US in the water in #Hawaii on #Oahu #NorthShore to #SwimWithSharks and #DiveWithSharksInHawaii with a trained #MarineBiologist / #SharkSafetyDiver Check out our #Shark and #MarineResearch @OneOceanResearch and our #Education outreach program @OneOceanEducation #LearnAboutSharks and our Non-Profit @Waterinspired conservation group and Founders: @Juansharks and @OceanRamsey Want to join the team?

Giant 'Dead Whale' Is Haunting Reminder of Massive Plastic Pollution Problem I shared this on @sustainable4life and thought I'd share here too. Our oceans are being destroyed by plastic. 😢 ----------------- . Greenpeace Philippines sent a strong message about plastic pollution with a giant "Dead Whale" art exhibit in Naic, Cavite. The 50-foot long whale replica, which was created from plastic waste, was positioned on the beach near the shoreline in Manila Bay. "Listen to the dead whale's wake-up call, look closer and see what plastic pollution does to the ocean," Greenpeace Philippines wrote on Facebook about the campaign. "We hope that this installation encourages the public to take action and #RefusePlastic!

Researchers use a three-point system to visually ID individual White Sharks. The first ID marker is the track of the white and dark color pattern on the gills. The contours are different for each animal. Second is the dorsal (top) fin. They look for any coloration, scars or distinctive markings. Finally, again they look for the color pattern on the Anal Fin...that’s the small fin on the ventral (bottom) of the shark, just before that tail. Similar to the gills, the colors and patterns will also differ for each animal. Of course large scars or irregular color patterns are also used but they can change over time. #whiteshark #shark #greatwhiteshark #pacificocean #mexico #islaguadalupe #guadalupeisland #nauticam #nikon #nikond500 #nikonphotography #underwaterphotography #oceanconservation #atomicaquatics #aqualung #cressi1946 #scuba #cagediving #savethesharks

#BluePlanet2 has highlighted the real effects plastic pollution has on our oceans and the marine life. We have to take action and save our planet from plastic pollution. ... #Repost @bbcearth (@get_repost) ・・・ #EarthOnLocation by @johndickens.boz ... Every year, around 8 million metric tons of plastic waste enters the ocean. On the remote island of South Georgia, in the Southern Ocean, scientists from the British Antarctic Survey have discovered that adult wandering albatrosses are inadvertently feeding their chicks plastic, picked up in the ocean hundreds or even thousands of miles away. #bbcearth #plasticfree #reusablebottle #reusablebags #plasticpollution #plasticwaste #saveouroceans #saveourseas #oceanpollution #oceanconservation #oceanconservancy

This particularly photogenic cusk eel in the family Ophidiidae was seen on one of the earlier dives of the current expedition of the NOAA research vessel, Okeanos Explorer. I was fascinated with its seemingly effortless movement and undulating dorsal and anal fins. It was this feeling of movement I wanted to capture in its illustration. Tune in to @vtritter and crew as they are diving on suspected gas seeps today that likely harbor chemosynthetic organisms! https://youtu.be/fOdHf0doWdY Prints of these deep sea fishes are available on my website, www.rittercraft.com. #noaa #okeanosexplorer #marinebiology #oceanexploration #oceanconservation #exploration #deepsea #fisheries #research #fish #fishart #fishing #fishingart #diving #marineart #scubadiving
