Definitely more of a ‘Marlin’. Nemo had a limp fin. @rafikadura
If a toy company can make this happen, ANYONE can! @Hasbro, one of the world’s largest toy manufacturers, has stepped up its sustainability game and is phasing out all plastics used to package its toys and games by the end of 2022. The plastics ban covers just the packaging, not the plastic action figures or dolls or trucks inside the packaging.
These teeny tiny little fellas gonna change your mind about leaving any trash behind at the beach? We’d hope so. · · · These tiny baby seahorses have a difficult time making it to adulthood. We decrease their chances of survival even more by polluting the environment. Everytime you pick up a piece of litter in the streets you could be making a difference to a tiny life somewhere. .

We eat a credit card worth of plastic every WEEK. Let’s get this out there and all share this post! _____ Based on available data, Americans ingest an estimated 74,000 to 121,000 microplastic particles every year, the researchers found. However, the true number is probably much higher, because for some likely sources of microplastics, there were no strong data available. ___ “As we put too much plastic into different environments,” says study author Kieran Cox, “it’s not surprising that it makes its way back to us.” ___ Do you care about the planet? 🌏 // Based on info from the Journal of Environmental Science & Technology.
Freaked out or fascinated — which one you feeling? ... #Repost @whales_orcas - This incredible footage was filmed on location in the Ross Sea Marine Protected Area courtesy of Marine Scientist, Dr. Regina Eisert confirming that toothfish are indeed part of an Orca’s diet. The astonishing footage shows the young mammal headbutting marine expert Regina Eisert’s camera, described as a “whale selfie stick.” The Orca then opens its mouth and chews on some toothfish before swimming away. This video was shot during an expedition in the Ross Sea region Marine Protected Area earlier this month. Eisert, who is based at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, was standing by the edge of the sea ice, collecting samples, when she was approached by the whale. - By @tpaonlce
The only time of the year when hunting “sharks” is deemed acceptable. 😂🤣🦈@asc_sharkstudies #tbt
1. Get off IG right now 2. Get trash bags 3. Drive to beach 4. Pickup trash Alternate (no beach around): 1. Get off IG right now 2. Get trash bags 3. Walk around and pickup littered areas 4. Go home and look up “sound of ocean waves” on YouTube. // EDIT - this feels like something that might have to happen tomorrow, huh? 🤣 #whatyoucandowednesday
But why? Is the word endangered not enough? REPOST @Angelaraynermp // Japan has just killed its first whale in over 30 years as they have restarted commercial whaling . It took them just 3 hours to catch a beautiful Minke Whale. They plan to kill over 200 more whales this year, including the endangered Sei Whale. We are truly destroying our planet. When will we ever learn? Save the Whale! 😭
With summer vacations coming to a close it’s good to remember you can still be sustainable on road trips!! It’s all in how you prepare, here’s some examples from @plantedinthewoods #whatyoucandowednesday We’re up for other suggestions! (Put em below)
