Happy Earth Day! 🎉 We’re so grateful to have collaborated with @sustainablecoastlineshawaii @808cleanups today to raise awareness on the trash/plastic problem we have in our environment! Mahalo to all of the volunteers and participants who joined us over at Makai Research Pier! As always, we are devastated with the amount of debris we pull from both the beach and reef! Let’s all do our part in saving the ocean by reducing the amount of plastic we use. 🤙🏽 Thank you so much again for everyone who helped here and all over the world. Make every day an Earth Day 🌍 // Mahalo to our sponsors @oneoceandesigns @clarklittleclothing @ecoceanic @7seasrope @guayaki and more for the amazing support.

Please help save the critically endangered Goliath grouper by signing the petition in @ellasavestheocean’s bio. Mahalo nui loa!! ・・・ 🌟LINK IN BIO‼️🌟 ‼️PLEASE SHARE‼️ Urgent Call to Action! Please Please Please speak up for the Critically Endangered Goliath Grouper in Ft. Lauderdale FWC meeting April 25th & 26th. Place: Marriott Fort Lauderdale North 6650 North Andrews Avenue Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33309 If i was to tell you that an entity was going tho KILL CRITICALLY ENDANGERED ANIMALS in the name of would have thought it was the Japanese killing whales! If I was to tell you an entity was going to sell tickets so you could KILL CRITCALLY ENDANGERED would have thought it was like Cecil the trophy killing lion hunters! But this is right here in United States of America and the Entity is the FWC, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Yes the same one that killed many of our black bears! We cannot allow this to happen! The fish is poisonous with mercury so it's against the law to sell it and obviously you shouldn't eat or even feed it to your pets. Our oceans need ecological engineers like this to sustain even more life than without them! They bring millions of tourism dollars in by divers that just want to see them! Here's what you can do to help! Please sign and share the petition below to your followers! Repost any of my Goliath Grouper posts, but with the new schedule and location. Please contact me to get the science facts and find out what else you can do. Thank you so much for all many of you have already done and continue to do! Save the Goliath Grouper! @jim_abernethy #saveprotectedanimals #savegoliathgrouper #bethevoice #overfishing #needlessslaughter #Bethechangetheworldneeds

TOMORROW! Join us, @sustainablecoastlineshawaii, and many other wonderful organizations for Earth Day! The entire event is from 9:00am-1:30pm, but the cleanup portion starts at 9:00 and ends around 11:30. :) There will be a big cleanup at Waimanalo Beach Park, but our team, One Ocean Conservation, will be co-hosting a smaller reef and beach cleanup down at Makai Research Pier! There will be a shuttle running from Waimanalo to the pier, so feel free to park at Waimanalo (many more parking spaces). We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the incredible planet we live on. ❤️🌏 #Repost @sustainablecoastlineshawaii More information on the cleanup and the event in general: @sustainablecoastlineshawaii ・・・ Spent the sunrise on the beach where we are hosting our cleanup on Sunday. The rains flushed tons of trash out into the ocean and the winds brought it back to land along with remnants from the gyre like conglomerates (mixed nets/ropes) and plastic pollution. Thanks to @kimeona_kane for continual work on this zone and this net. We’ll do our best to get it fully removed on Sunday if it’s still there. Check in 9am. Clean 9:30-11:30. Music from @theurchinz and @sashamonhi plus games from 12-1:30. Thanks to @firstinshi for sponsoring and @vans for the shirts. #earthdaynalo #earthdayiseveryday #waimanalo #malama #landbaseddebris #marinedebris #plasticpollution #plastic #cleanup #cleanyobeach #drbeach #sunrise #waimanalosunrise

Despite their reputation, sharks are not the mindless, killing-machines we’ve portrayed them to be. Although they are still apex predators and wild animals (and deserve the deepest respect and awareness around them), there is a much bigger threat to humans and the planet than sharks: PLASTIC. It may seem silly to think that this material is one of the biggest threats to the ocean, but it is. Unfortunately, plastic never truly goes away (at least for a LONG period of time), only breaking down into smaller pieces, often consumed by animals by mistake. Plastic is contributing to the downfall of our planet. And it’s because of us. People. :( Instead of having a negative impact on the environment, how about creating a positive one? ❤️ We must take action! Please join us in reducing the amount of plastic humans use. Cutting out single-use plastic such as straws, bags, utensils, and cups from your lifestyle is a great start. :) Let’s work together to make a difference and help #savetheocean.

Even though these pieces of plastic are small, they still cause harm to the ocean, animals, and humans. Everyone has the power to impact the life around us, positive or negative. By cutting back on your plastic use, you’ll help save many important species & help prevent the ultimate destruction of our ocean. We have to take action now while we still have the chance to restore Earth’s ecosystems. ❤️ // ATTENTION: SATURDAYS CLEANUP IS CANCELLED. #savetheocean #savetheplanet #plastic #pollution #environment #conservation #oahu #hawaii

#Repost from our friends at @keiko_conservation regarding the bill, SB 2498, that would ban polystyrene foam here in Hawaii! We need YOUR help and your voice! ・・・ Although the most recent hearing went great and the bill (SB 2498) continues to move forward it still needs help! There were over 500 written testimonies sent in to support SB 2498 and only a few in opposition, mostly from the restaurant industry and polystyrene manufacturers, but paid lobbyists for those two industries are making the voice of the opposition much stronger! It is more important than ever to send e-mails (A LOT of e-mails) to Hawaii's Representatives to voice your SUPPORT for SB 2498. You can write them a simple "Please support SB 2498" or pages on the reasons why you want a ban on polystyrene foam, every e-mail counts! You can easily copy and paste the e-mails below on our website (linked in @keiko_conservation bio): ; #keikoconservation #oneoceandiving @mattgeophotography @oneoceanconservation @louhelpsyousavesharks @oceanicpreservationsociety @waterinspired @surfrideroahu @sustainablecoastlineshawaii @wildhawaii #nerdsagainstnurdles #take3forthesea #banthebag #startwith1thing

Please use your voice to help save sharks! ⚠️💔🦈 Sign the petition in @inkedqueen87’s bio. It takes only a few minutes. ・・・ 🌟Link in Bio🌟 I need everyone to repost this and help me get more signatures for my petition. It is crucial that we stop shark fin importation in Canada and you can help me make this happen. Canada being the 2nd biggest importer of shark fins outside of Asia by importing 100 TONS of shark fins per year, this needs to stop immediately! The government told me during my inquiry about their import, they tried justifying their actions by saying it is sustainable. It is NOT! Please sign and share!! #savesharks #care2 #petition #ocean #conservation #racingextinction #robstewart #finfree #Repost @finalliance (@get_repost) ・・・ This petition from Canada needs your help! Bill S-238 in Canada is close to banning all trade of shark fins in the country and this petition supports that effort! 🦈 “Our oceans are facing many issues but shark finning is one that we cannot afford to ignore any longer, our sharks are disappearing and 1/3 of open water sharks are facing extinction. Shark Finning has been illegal in Canada since 1994 but the shark fin trade is still ongoing and we must stop the importation in our country, and in the city of Montreal to practice sustainability and allow our ecosystems to regenerate.” 🦈 Link to petition is on our fb #canada #stopsharkfinning #sharks #sharks #savesharks #helpsavesharks #sharkconservation #sharklife #sharkadvocate

The ocean is a beautiful place with such beautiful animals. Please help us save the ocean. #Repost @oceanramsey (turn the volume up!! So beautiful! 🐳) ・・・ TURN THE VOLUME UP!!! 😍🐋💙🐋💙 I just want to say that this was instant good karma. I swam down to get a piece of debris, a plastic bag (one of two that unfortunately drifted through this mornings @oneoceandiving @oneoceanresearch dive) & a whale swam right towards us and down and stayed in place just singing his heart out! It was bone rattling, my heart was racing with joy, it was so beautiful to be surrounded by his symphony reverberating through everything. I cannot express how grateful I am for moments like this. I’m not a fan of the necessity of paperwork in life but moments like this really put life and work in perspective 💙🐋💙🌊 I freaking love the #ocean #nature #whales #sharks #dolphins #work #fieldwork #respectTheocean #savewhales #savetheocean CHECK OUT @juansharks OTHER VID FOR MORE 🎼🐋🎼🐋💙🌊💙🌊 It’s whale season in #Hawaii and while we don’t put people in the water with Whales we are very fortunate that several times each season they swim up to us when we are already in the water with the sharks. The sharks don’t care about the whales or pay them any attention unless they are injured or dead.

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in our March beach and reef cleanup! It’s both sad and amazing to see so much trash collected & removed away from the ocean. As those of you there saw, despite us collecting recyclables too, a LARGE majority of what we found was trash and could only be thrown “away”. Please join us in reducing our plastic use and joining us for future cleanups to help the ocean. Our next cleanup will be on April 14th (we host cleanups on the #SecondSaturday of every month). Location yet to be determined. // Mahalo to all of our amazing sponsors @oneoceandesigns @ecoceanic @guayaki @clarklittleclothing @albabotanica @watersoulfoundation @stillsane @yogakaihawaii @corepoweryoga @reallifemermaidshop @thessalonikecollection @naturezwayofficial and many more! Stay tuned for future cleanups with @oneoceanconservation @waterinspired and @keiko_conservation. Again, thank you all for joining us today. Aloha! #SaveTheOcean #plastic #debris #beach #ocean #cleanup #oahu #hawaii
