Polar bear on Svalbard, with @melissa_schaefer 🌎 In the last few weeks Arctic temperatures have soared 20 degrees Celsius (40 Fahrenheit) above normal, flooded by extremely mild air from all sides. The record-setting temperatures and lack of ice is exactly what scientists have projected over the Arctic for years and it’s fundamentally changing the landscape. • Temperatures over the entire Arctic north of 80 degrees latitude have averaged about 6 degrees Celsius (10 Fahrenheit) above normal since the beginning of the calendar year (the normal temperature is around -30 Celsius, or -22 Fahrenheit). (Source @washingtonpost ) 🌎 This is extremely bad news for the polar bear. This time of the year the Arctic Ocean and fjords of our planet’s most northerly land areas are supposed to freeze. The North Pole ice cap should grow and expand for the polar bear to have its feeding season during midwinter and spring. In the summer most ice disappear. 🌎 The polar bear is a magnificent and powerful creature. But sadly also a symbol of climate change. The Arctic is a harsh and extreme environment, a beautiful world of ice. But sadly the Ground Zero of climate change. 💙 #arctic #polarbear #oneplanet #turningthetide #climatechange

A young male polar bear fights for survival on Svalbard. 🌎 A polar bear cub lives with its mother for two and a half years. The first time alone is a struggle. Life is tough for most polar bears, but especially so for the young ones. The mother has taught it a lot, but catching food on your own is difficult. Especially in the parts of the Arctic where sea ice is disappearing at staggering rates. • Ecosystems are falling a part like houses of cards. And on the top stands the polar bear. 💙 #arctic #polarbear #oneplanet #turningthetide #climatechange

Projecting our profession in a positive manner is of paramount importance. Humanizing the badge by allowing the public to enter that guarded vulnerable place can only accomplish more positive than negative. I fail, I cry, I love I die I’m a regular joe Just like you, with a job that requires compassion, firmness,fairness , love and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice. The job that chose me, not the job that I chose, if I died today and had the chance to be born again, I assure you I will serve, because it’s embedded in my DNA.

Long time ago these waters where plain of colors, the corals were alive and you could see thousands of fishes rounding the reef. Nowadays this place no longer exists. Climate change is destroying thousands of beautiful landscapes like this one. But it’s not at all climate change fault. It’s our fault too, we destroyed this habitat, we are destroying everything we want and we are doing nothing to fix it. #coralreef #oceans #life #climatechangeisreal #climatechange #savethereef #saveearth #saveplanetearth #saveocean #turningthetide #saveanimals #enviroment #enviromentalist

It is simply stunning how much celebrities like Leonardo Di Caprio care and fight for our environment and nature! Everyone makes a difference so start acting!

#Regram #RG @greenpeace: @CristinaMittermeier, Antarctica / Icebergs, along with polar bears, have become another “canary in the coal mine”, warning us that urgent action is required.
My name is Cristina Mittermeier (@cristinamittermeier), and I have made it my life’s work to tell the story of our world’s oceans. Drilling for oil, expanding oil pipelines, and failure to listen to what science that is telling us, may have irreversible consequences on the planet. If we are going to reverse climate change, the time to act is now. Every other breath we take comes from the sea. Our planet is made up of more than 70% ocean, and while we, as a species, have done significant damage, there is still time to make things right. 
My partner Paul Nicklen (@PaulNicklen) and I are taking over Greenpeace International, and Greenpeace Canada’s (@greenpeace_canada) Instagram feeds. We formed @Sea_legacy four years ago to change the narrative of the world’s oceans from a negative one, into a positive one. As advocates for a healthy ocean, we stand with those opposing tar sands and all of the risks that they pose to our planet.

Beluga whales, they have white coloration due to adaptation of living in the Arctic, allowing them to camouflage in the ice caps to protect themselves from predators. Threats to these magnificent whales include: •Shipping vessels •Oil and gas production and transport
•Commercial fishing gear and operations •Pollution •Habitat destruction and alteration.

Two photos show how a seal caught in plastic waste died before medics could save it last week.

It swam into the loop of strapping used for packaging when it was young and much smaller.

As it grew into an adult male and still couldn’t free itself, the band cut into its blubber layer and later its muscle, eventually killing it.

Sally Bennett of St Mary’s Seal Watch in Whitley Bay, Newcastle, described how a member of the public found the seal still alive but in pain. ‘A medic from British Divers Marine Life Rescue came out, but in the time it took – only half an hour – the seal had died before they got there.’ It could have been prevented.
Conservationists urges people to always snip rings before throwing them away to avoid trapping wildlife.

Types of plastic and other rubbish that cause the most problems:

Plastic rings holding bottles and cans together. Plastic packing tape, such as that holding parcels or stacks of newspaper. Fishing nets and lines.
As online shopping continues to grow, households now have far more parcel banding and plastic packaging around the house than before. Not all of it is disposed of safely. ‘This animal must have been living in pain as its internal organs were slowly strangled by human garbage.’ #whitleybay #newcastle #cleanyourbeach #plasticfree  #waronwaste #banthebag #projectaware #plasticpatrol #nakedplanet #balloonsblow #strawssuck #plastickills #bethechange #dontkillthefish #paradise #skipthelid #awaveofchange #sealegacy #turningthetide #oceanhero
