🐠 Check this little guy out. Hiding in his Anemone. Clownfish live in the coral reefs off the coasts of Australia and Southeast Asia as far north as southern Japan. They are found mainly around certain kinds of anemones, a creature that anchors itself to the sea floor and uses its tentacles to attract food. The anemone's tentacles have stinging cells called nematocysts that release a toxin when prey or predator touches it. Clownfish, however, develop immunity to the toxin by very carefully touching the tentacles with different parts of their bodies, according to National Geographic. A layer of mucus builds up, protecting the clownfish from the toxin. The pair forms a symbiotic relationship. The anemone provides protection and leftovers for the clownfish, while the clownfish brings food to the anemone and preens its host, removing parasites. - Get to know what's in our oceans with @ourbluemess For our oceans! - 📷 All credit goes to original photographer. - #saveourbeach #ocean #oceanlove #saveourseas #oceanlife #marineconservation #conservation #underwater #underwaterphotography #makeadifference #hawaii #saveouroceans #nomoreplastic #saveourplanet #savetheocean #oceanoptimism #bethechange #whalewatching #whale #wildlife #nature #sealife #beachlife #marinebiology #scuba #scubadiving #scubalife #marinelife #deepsea #naturephotography

#greenunion partner @glasswingjewellery Ah Saturday, you’re back 💙Apologies instagram for not checking in a lot recently, last week went by in such a blur! And what a week! The best thing about it? Witnessing passionate young people organising and coming together to stand up for our precious planet 🌍 I know many of their fellow students wouldn’t turn out to protest, saying they didn’t believe the strike would make any difference....and maybe they’re right....but history has repeatedly shown us that when individuals join up with other individuals, in seemingly insignificant, peaceful acts of protest, bit by bit, things do start to change. Maybe protesting on the streets isn’t for everyone, but we can certainly all do our bit to tackle climate change in different ways, however small and insignificant they may seem. One thing’s for sure, if we do nothing, that really *won’t* make any difference 🌍🤞💚🌱 . . . #bethechange #makeadifference #climatechange #climatestrike #climateemergency #climateaction #climatechangeisreal #studentwalkout #environment #conscious #sustainability #responsiblejewellery #marineconservation #beachcleanup #seaglass #ecofriendly #treadlightly #ethicalbrands #seaglassrings #seaglassjewellery

A day filled with wonder, learning and boat loads of fun! 🚣🚣 . The kids we teach from The Learning Center were beyond excited to finally be out at sea, experiencing the ocean ecosystem up close! The day's sightings included a host of Brown headed gulls, a sea nettle jellyfish, black kites and of course, the showstoppers for the day: the magnificent Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphins. . . The children were particularly thrilled as they observed and identified different dolphin behaviours including deep dives and tail slaps! They also got a chance to use our hydrophone and were quite surprised to witness firsthand the amount of underwater noise created by boat traffic. Through this, they also learnt the importance of engaging with wildlife ethically and responsibly. . . All in all, an engaging day for us and the kids as we explored the habitat, behaviours and challenges faced by the dolphins! And as always, a big thank you to our community boat partner Pascoal and boat captain Prakash for so ably manouvering the boat - especially in the presence of dolphins! . . #BeTerraConscious #CoastsCommunitiesConservation #outreach #education #marineconservation #MarineEducation #travel #responsibletravel #learn #grow #teach #ethicaltravel #ethicaltourism #dolphins #seanettle #jellyfish #dolphin #dolphin🐬 #dolphinconservation #Explore #ExperientialLearning #learningbydoing #discover #goa #childrenourhope #ourfuture #childrenourfuture #littleearthlings

On this #WorldWhaleDay, here are some of my favourite facts about whales from the Out of the Classroom post I wrote during my Jules Verne Trophy record attempt: ⠀ ⠀ The blue whale is the largest animal to ever live on earth, larger than any dinosaur. The biggest recorded blue whale measured 30.5 m long, with an estimated weight of 144 tonnes (almost the same as 2,000 people). Its tongue can weigh as much as an elephant and its heart is about the size of a VW Beetle. The aorta, the largest artery, is big enough for a child to crawl through.⠀ ⠀ With a lifespan of up to 100 years, the southern right whale is one of the longest living species of whale. But that’s nothing compared with the bowhead whale, which can live up to 200 years and has the longest estimated lifespan of any mammal.⠀ ⠀ Male humpback whales sing long, complex, eerie songs that include sequences of squeaks, grunts, and other sounds. They sing only in warm waters, perhaps to attract mates. In cold waters, where they feed, they work together with other whales to form ‘bubble nets’ to trap their prey. Humpbacks break the migration record for any mammal. One female was spotted off the Antarctic Peninsula and then re-sighted five months later off the coast of Colombia. Even taking the shortest route, this is a 8,400 km journey. ⠀ ⠀ Whales communicate with each other over great distances – entire ocean basins in the case of blue and fin whales - while beaked and sperm whales stay underwater for up to an hour, hunting at depths over 1000 m. ⠀ ⠀ Much remains to be discovered about the mysterious lives of whales. However, conservation scientists have already made some important findings. After many centuries of exploitation, when whale oil fueled industries worldwide, these elusive ocean giants now deserve our respect and protection. Happy World Whale Day! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #nature #biodiversity #life #ecosystem #ourplanet #planetearth #animalprotection #conservation #wildlife #ocean #oceanprotect30by30 #marineprotectedarea #MPA #marineconservation #ourocean #legacy #blueplanet #SDG14 #biodiversity #ecosystem

Today is a beautiful day. It's the birthday of my my little Padawan Tom @tomrsf and it's World Whale Day. I'm proud to unveil this amazing photo of Tom and me with two huge whale mums. He is eight years old on this photography. I worked as an assignment on humpback whales in the south West of Madagascar, in the Vezo country. In my left hand, Tom's little hand, in my right hand my camera. I then introduced Tom to the whales. I think he remembers ...

🛋 #CleanYourCleaningRoutine 🛁Who here does a big clean at the weekend!? For those of you wanting to swap cleaning products but dont have time for DIY recipes, this is a brand I love! For locals (France), its available at Casto. I especially LOVE this daily shower spray. It prevents the hard water buildup we have from living near the Alpes mixing with soap or showergel. This can be really hard to clean off! Not the case however with this lovely however :) at Cannes

⚓️Plastic bottles, microbeads and straws seriously suck... but so does the fishing industry. . . A recent survey from @theoceancleanup found that a whopping 46% of the ocean’s plastic is made up of ‘ghost gear’ - discarded and dumped fishing nets☠️These nets are among the greatest killers in our oceans. They pose a serious threat to marine life, as fish, mammals and other sea creatures become entangled in the deadly floating nets🐬🐙🐡 . Other fishing gear makes up the majority of the remaining plastic in our waters, including ropes, crates, baskets and eel traps🚨 . Cutting single-use plastics is crucial to our movement, but if we are to resolve the plastic problem then we need to also realise the critical role that fishing plays. Please cut seafood out of your diet💙🐟 .

When it comes to ghost nets, we now have options of biodegradable nets, technology systems for marking and tracking fishing gear, collection and recycling. But, fishing boats should make sure their nets are attached extra-securely and never dump old damaged nets into the water - #love4oceansorg #L4O #love4oceans @bracenet_savetheseas

High five!! It’s World Whale Day!! ⠀ ⠀ World Whale Day seeks to raise awareness on the continuing need to protect whales. ⠀ ⠀ To get to know more about these amazing animals, here are some facts about whales:⠀ ⠀ * Whales, just like other mammals, breathe air⠀ * Whales are warm-blooded animals and feed their young with milk⠀ * Gestation period: 9-15 months (depends on the species)⠀ * Number of offspring: 1⠀ * Nursing time: 1 year or more⠀ * There are over 80 species of whales⠀ * While they sleep, one half of the brain sleeps too while the other makes sure they breathe⠀ * Whales can swim as fast as 30 miles per hour⠀ ⠀ For information on how to volunteer with us to help with the research and the conservation of whales and dolphins, head to the ADWF website - link in bio 🐳⠀ ⠀ #worldwhaleday #whales #awdf #volunteer #travel #fairearth #oceanconservation #ocean #sea #saveourseas #marineconservation #nature #savetheocean #underwater #conservation #plasticpollution #saveouroceans #oceanlife #diving #marinelife #wildlife #underwaterphotography #sealife #plasticocean #plasticfree #scubadiving #marinebiology #adventure #ecofriendly #oceanlovers⠀ ⠀ (Photo Credit: Masa Ushioda)

Juvenile black-blotched porcupinefish, also known as shortspine porcupinefish (Diodon liturosus). The eye reflects the strobe of my camera. The porcupinefish's diet is based on Sea urchins, gastropods and crustaceans. This fish is solitary, except during mating periods, it has a nocturnal activity with a maximal activity at sunset and sunrise. During the day it normally hides in caves or under ledges.

My students and I presented the work of the Kia’i Kanaloa network which is comprised of Native Hawaiian cultural and religious practitioners from each island who acknowledge a genealogical relationship with and kuleana to Kanaloa. The Kia’i work with federal, state, and county agencies, lawmakers and policy makers to ensure that kinolau of Kanaloa (cetaceans, monk seals, turtles, etc.) are afforded the respect due to them when they are in distress, stranded, injured, and/or have expired on Hawaiʻi shores. Kiaʻi Kanaloa explore legal tools as well as viable strategies that would encourage collaborative engagement between various federal, state, and county agencies and Native Hawaiian communities with respect to working with and caring for Kanaloa beings during stranding events, and in honoring their remains. #kiaikanaloa #kanaloa #whales #dolphins #cetaceans #sharks #marineconservation #indigenous #kanakamaoli #hawaiianrights at Kahaluu Elementary School

Approximately 640,000 tons of fishing gear are left in our oceans every year, according to World Animal Protection (WAP). Left in the ocean, ghost nets become death traps for almost any animal they come into contact with. Entanglement in ghost nets can lead to exhaustion, suffocation, starvation, amputations of limbs, and, eventually, the death of a marine animal. Entangled fish often act as bait, attracting larger predators such as turtles, sharks, and dolphins, which may themselves become entangled - #love4oceansorg #L4O #love4oceans @bracenet

@ourbluemess 🐋 Deep breaths. Humpback whales are known for their magical songs, which travel for great distances through the world’s oceans. These sequences of moans, howls, cries, and other noises are quite complex and often continue for hours on end. Scientists are studying these sounds to decipher their meaning. It is most likely that humpbacks sing to communicate with others and to attract potential mates. These whales are found near coastlines, feeding on tiny shrimp-like krill, plankton and small fish. Humpbacks migrate annually from summer feeding grounds near the poles to warmer winter breeding waters closer to the Equator. - Get to know what's in our oceans with @ourbluemess For our oceans! - 📷 All credit goes to original photographer. - #saveourbeach #ocean #oceanlove #saveourseas #oceanlife #marineconservation #conservation #underwater #underwaterphotography #makeadifference #hawaii #saveouroceans #nomoreplastic #saveourplanet #savetheocean #oceanoptimism #bethechange #whalewatching #whale #wildlife #nature #sealife #beachlife #marinebiology #scuba #scubadiving #scubalife #marinelife #deepsea #naturephotography
