  • For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it. ~ Jacques Cousteau #OceanExplorer #Conservationist ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Searching for beasties ! ➡️swipe 
Many people have heard of crown of thrones starfish or COTS, but there’s another threat amongst our reefs. 
A Drupella is a type of sea snail that feeds on live coral tissue. 
Although this is not a high risk area, outbreaks of drupella can cause significant mortality on coral reefs. Here at @traccborneo it is important to perform regular checks and remove any drupella that may be hiding in the young transplanted corals on the artificial reef crests, to ensure they have the best chance of survival. Data is collected for these corals and the drupella for monitoring purposes. To learn more about ARC reefs or the work being done here, check out the Tropical #Research and #Conservation Centres (TRACC) social media and website. .

  • As of this week, AMCS has responded to 100 marine mammal and sea turtle strandings this year, approximately 6 animals per week, from Long Island into Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. We need your help. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support our stranding response efforts. Your support will help enhance our mobile response unit and allow us to continue this important work of uncovering what is impacting these animals and how we can help others in the future.

  • One-third of all fish 🐟 caught around the world are wasted. It's a sobering fact as the human population grows and food security worsens. Large trawlers discard huge amounts of #Bycatch overboard, and plenty of seafood rots before making it to market. #FridayFacts

  • 🌊 So a couple of days ago we snorkelled at Turtle Point which was lovely as I got to chill with this turtle in his lil patch of reef. As I was busy watching him something bumped into my head. It was this Dettol bottle, so not something that belongs in the sea with marine life. I didn’t put it in my trash butt as it was kinda slimy and had barnacle bits on it, so I just held onto it instead. 🌊 Y’all have heard the biz and know by now that Individual action and consumer responsibility is important. Reduce. reuse. Recycle. But my hopes for the future is that the producers of single use plastic goods create their products with sustainability in mind and that the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility comes to the forefront in the world of recycling. ♻️ #marineconservation #ocean #turtle #marine #sea #marinelitter #reef #blueplanet #earth #snorkeling #beachcleanup #trashtag #endplasticpollution #singleuseplastic
