The Perry Institute for Marine Science @reefrescuenetwork collaborated with @stuartcovesdivebahamas to teach our PADI Reef Rescue Diver Specialty Course to 17 ladies this weekend for @paditv Women's Dive Day. The course teaches about corals, the threats they face and what can be done to assist their recovery including the practise of coral nurseries. The ladies then participated in 2 dives learning how to maintain the trees and also got to outplant their own coral with personalised tag so they can keep check how it is growing over the coming months. Thanks to Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas for hosting this annual event and all the Stuart Cove's Reef Rescue Instructors who assited in teaching the program.

Let’s just pretend I was saying something really intellectual😉🙈 At the weekend I had the privilege of meeting an absolute legend! Lewis Pugh is currently attempting to swim the length of the English Channel-560km! #Thelongswim marks the beginning of a worldwide campaign to ensure that 30% of our oceans are fully protected by 2030. I wish him the best of luck for the next 460km and hope that his amazing attempt will inspire people and leaders just as much as he has inspired me over the last couple of years! 🤞🌊🌍 . . . #lewispugh #thelongswim #plymouth #marineconservation #nationalpark #legend #hero #inspiration #swimmer #swimming #environment #saveourseas #conservation #plasticpollution #plasticfreeplymouth @plasticfree

Did you know that any old Tom, Dick or Harry can buy a boat and set up a whale watching business? Look out for operators that follow international guidelines and respect the whales 🐋🐬[link in bio]

Sometimes this is the only picture we get from a fisherman when a sea turtle is found dead or killed - as these fishermen live in very remote villages and don’t always have the ability to get us the photos we need to identify the species. In this case, we are just thankful that we got this photo to confirm a sea turtle was found dead in a fisherman’s net off the coast of Les Basses. We add this to our sea turtle information database which just keeps getting bigger by the day! #seaturtleresearch #seaturtles #saveseaturtles #haiti #haitioceanproject #fishermen #fishingnet #marineconservation #photoidentification #lesbasses

There are few places in the world where you can see both species of manta rays on the same reefs. Luckily, I have been living in one of those places for the last few months. 😍☺️ . . Originally thought to be the same, in 2009 scientists established that there are at least two distinct species of manta ray; the giant oceanic manta (Mobula birostris) and the reef manta (Mobula alfredi). There are several morphological and behavioral differences that distinguish the two from each other. One defining characteristic that you can see in this photo is that oceanic mantas have dark mouths whereas reef mantas have white or a light grey colored mouth. This was a big female from today that hung out with us while we watched her receive a spa treatment from cleaner fish. . . . . . . #mozambique #africa #manta #mantaray #dive #scuba #scubadiving #research #survey #fieldwork #marinebiology #marineresearch #marineconservation #girlsthatscuba #science #ocean #oceanlove #travel #nature #explore #divingpassport #diving #passionpassport #blueplanet #wild

We are used to doing beach cleans and picking up plastic that gets washed in on each tide, but what about picking up plastic in the sea? . Here's a 1 minute snippit of a video which shows a 30 minute dive off Cornwall's south coast which we did with @divenqy . We did see more fish than plastic thankfully but we did find plastic. . . If we make changes now then hopefully this will not get any worse... How have you reduced your reliance on plastics? .

(Kristin): I feel like I’ve just been torturing myself this past week during the competition here finding that I’m struggling with a bit of equalization issues. Always being so close to making to the plate and turning at merely a meter away twice now. I know these depths I’m announcing are very doable for myself, but there are many factors of added stress that I’ve realized that I’ve been carrying into my dives lately and is causing more tension on the dives making equalization more difficult. Although I have yet to receive any white cards I’m still going to do my best and have as much fun as I can in the next 2 dives possibly taking the monofin off and throwing the bi fins back on to make things a little more fun 😸 📷 Daniel Koval #teamdoublek #doublekfreediving #팀더블케이 #더블케이프리미엄다이빙기어 #suuntodive #bahamas #originECN #itsbetterinthebahamas

#Repost @lumoes_ (@get_repost) ・・・ So terrible seeing videos like this ‼️‼️ genetic studies have shown that this whale that was hunted by an Icelandic company was a hybrid between a blue whale and a fin whale 💔💔 RP: @oneoceandiving The practice of whaling has become a high topic of interest in the few last weeks due to recent controversial news that has spread globally. Whaling is the practice of hunting and killing whales and is an activity that has been carried out for centuries. In recent years, whaling has increased in popularity in countries such as Norway, Japan and Iceland, despite whale populations reaching drastically low with a number of species endangered (NOAA, 2013). After a two year suspension, Icelandic whaling company Hvalur have said they will continue their hunt of the endangered fin whales and have set a target to kill 191 for this season. Whales are the largest marine mammals to have ever lived on the planet with the blue whale being the biggest animal to have ever lived (Clauset, 2013). These marine animals play a critical role in our ecosystems, keeping the ocean healthy and regulating food systems within the ocean.

It was such a pleasure watching the head of animal care train this new arrival this afternoon. Ayla, the little seal in the foreground, has only just been introduced to this pool. Seals don’t have to stay as residents often, so I hadn’t seen the process of introducing a young seal to training before. Ayla had a serious infection in her flipper bone and had to have part of her front flipper amputated. She has to remain on medication to keep her in full health. She suddenly has lots of new friends to socialise with. I’m sure she will pick things up quickly but today it was sweet to observe her innocence and playfulness! #youngseal #sealsanctuary #ayla #cornishsealsanctuary #pool #marinelife #marineconservation #wildlife #greyseal #greyseals #seals #summer #sunshine #training #husbandry #healthchecks #feedingtime

This is one of the larger lionfish submitted through the REEF lionfish derby in Sarasota. Lionfish are native to the Indo-Pacific ocean and are an invasive predatory fish with venomous spines and have no natural predators in Florida. Since their first sighting in 1995 the population has exploded and they are outcompeting the natural wildlife for food and territory in our ocean. The only way to keep the population under control is by harvesting the lionfish. Lionfish derbies are great conservation methods to help control the population but the population control doesn’t have to stop there. There is no limit or restrictions for harvesting lionfish. Any opportunity there is to collect these predatory fish can help to take back our reefs and help restore Florida’s natural ocean ecosystem. #lionfish #conservation #fishing #spearfishing #wildlifeconservation #fish #outdoors #angler #saveourseas #zookeeper #reef #ocean #conservationist #mote #education #marinewildlife #marineconservation

Zero waste sun protection and aftercare. If you’re a mermaid and spending most of your free time 30m below sea level among marine life and corals, the one thing you don’t want to do is poison the place you are visiting. Hawaii has banned chemical sunscreens and I’m all for more coastal areas, dive shops, seaside resorts etc strongly encouraging and educating beach goers on how their sun protection care is poison to the Marine environment. Not to mention other nasty chemicals in the commercial crap that eventually are toxic to us. What I have here is homemade reef safe tinted sunblock (I’m a brown girl, white sunblock on me looks stupid), freshly squeezed aloe vera gel and coconut oil. All ingredients here except the zinc oxide in the sunblock are locally sourced here in Malaysia. The aloe is from my balcony garden. Anyway the reason I’m displaying these are because they are part of my zero waste travel kit for one week of diving and island time in Malapascua, Philippines! Leaving tomorrow morning, so excited for my holiday 😊 No laptop, no phone (except for Instagram and texting my mum to let her know I’m ok) and I’m taking some fiction light reading as well. 😊

Sea otters are keystone predators in kelp forest ecosystems. Without them sea urchin populations grow and destroy the kelp, leaving no where for the other organisms in the ecosystem to find food and shelter and causing many of them to die.

💡 Tip Number 21 = Make Laundry Time Plastic Free. . 🔸Pegs, peg baskets and laundry baskets these days are all commonly make of plastic, but it doesn’t have to be the case. . 🔸These plastic options with their bright pretty colours might look appealing when they are shinny and new but don’t be fooled. Although they are seemingly cheap to buy when compared to their eco warrior counterparts, the plastic models are inferior comparisons and fall apart quickly and easily. . 🔸So next time you’re due for replacements, consider metal or bamboo or timber options. . 🔸As you can see, both my peg and laundry baskets are made of metal. The pegs are eco friendly, sustainable bamboo. . 🔸All of these items I’ve had for several years and as you can see, they are still as good as new and I don’t think I have broken a single peg in that entire time. Impressive huh! . 🔸What’s your favourite laundry tip for plastic Free July? . . . . . #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly #plasticfreejuly2018 #plasticfreelaundry #bamboopegs #metalpegbasket #metallaundrybasket #choosewisely #plasticisnotfantastic #passonplastic #waronwasteau #waronwaste #choosetoreuse #choosetorefuse #clothcleaning #plasticfreesponge #ecowarrior #ecofriendly #enviromentallyfriendly #marineconservation #saveourplanet #saveourseas #loveyourearth
