Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Ask For Donations to Charity Fighting Plastic Pollution As Wedding Gift

Source: @onegreenplanet
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle listed charities they would like their well-wishers to donate to instead of buying gifts. Among the seven charities, the couple has listed the organization @surfersagainstsewage – a national marine conservation and campaigning charity fighting plastic pollution.
“Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them since the announcement of their engagement and are keen that as many people as possible benefit from this generosity of spirit,” says the official Royal Wedding website. The organizations that found their way onto the list were personally selected by the couple and reflect the issues they are passionate about and their shared values. Many of the chosen charities are small groups whose work will receive significant publicity and support thanks to the decision.
As the Surfers Against Sewage team emphasizes, being selected as one of the seven charities is a huge testament and recognition of the volunteers dedicated to the organization and of its supporters “who work tirelessly to protect oceans and beaches for the benefit of everyone.”
“Surfers Against Sewage is thrilled to be one of the charities chosen to benefit from donations marking the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle,” said @HugoTagholm, Chief Executive of Surfers Against Sewage. “Our work as a national marine conservation charity empowers tens of thousands of volunteers annually to protect beaches for everyone. We are currently focused on tackling plastic pollution and this support will help us move towards our vision of Plastic Free Coastlines.”
The charity has shared that the donations it receives will be used to train and equip more regional leaders and volunteers, enable the organization to reach thousands of students through its Plastic Free Schools program, and inspire people, communities, and businesses to go plastic-free through the Plastic Free Communities initiative.

It's great being part of this "fight"! In the lead up to WORLD TURTLE DAY next Wednesday (23/5), @fightforourreef was hosting an action to help protect the future of our beloved sea turtles not only but especially at the Great Barrier Reef here in Australia.

As we know rising temperatures due to climate changes threatens our green turtle populations with studies indicating that 99% of hatchlings are being born female. Link to the study:
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jan/08/great-barrier-reef-rising-temperatures-turning-green-sea-turtles-female

Turtle populations are already endangered and are at risk of extinction if we do not act to minimise the impacts of climate change NOW!
So therefore, we had for instance this action yesterday which was at the front of the office of the Australian minister for mines, natural resources and energy, Anthony Lynham.

Beach cleans are not only beneficial for the local coastline as we remove plastics washed in each day, but they are also beneficial to both the individual and the environment...
.
For individuals a #beachclan is an enjoyable and meaningful as well as educational experience
.
The environment benefits as individuals engage in more environmentally responsible behaviours
.
So, make sure you look up as well as down!

Excellent micro plastic survey and beach clean today. Working in conservation means one faces endlessly pessimistic news but to see over 20 people turn up early on a Sunday morning, to sieve out bits of plastic from sand, fills me with optimism.
Even better to hear that a group of 400 volunteers were due to clean up the entire stretch of beach after us so we were told not to take too much plastic away ourselves.

Even better still, we encountered a group of shy smooth-coated otters before and after the survey. Think they were wondering what we were doing to their patch of beach.

We take our corporate responsibility very seriously at Wesleyan, which is why every employee is encouraged to spend one (paid) day volunteering in the community each year. Our Digital team had a fantastic time picking up plastic and other debris during their day with the Marine Conservation Society. #saveouroceans

I 💚my second hand dress. Do you buy second hand clothes?? Second hand textiles help reduce our environmental impact. Charity shops enable us to donate while we purchase. One pair of jeans takes 1,800 gallons of water (that’s drinkable water) to produce. We need to think about our precious water supplies, about what we are contributing to by our purchasing. Disposable fashion is a huge problem and it’s time to change our consumer habits. Passing on a pair of jeans to a friend or family member or buying some second hand from a charity shop lengthens the timespan from production to yes, you guessed it, landfill. Donate your old clothes, recycle them, upcycle them. @linda_eco_design runs workshops making your old clothing into something new and unique, a great way to breathe some new life into your old wardrobe. There’s a Link in bio that I found this morning, how China are looking at tackling the pollution problem within their textile industry, some alarming facts in there, a good piece to ponder on.... have a peek 👀 #2minutebeachclean#plasticproject#plasticpollution#ghostnet#ghostgear#fishingline#marineconservation#marineplastics#beachclean#litterpick#handmade#beachcombing#litterati#take3forthesea#justgrabbits#cleanoceans#surfersagainstsewage#repurpose#reuse#recycle#beachclean#beachcleaners#wethechange

#ProtectWhatYouLove 💙
Life on our blue planet is precious and one of a kind. Will you help protect it?
Animal agriculture is the largest of several threats to this incredible ecosystem, and is also the leading cause of ocean dead zones, greenhouse gas emissions, water depletion, land clearing, habitat loss and species extinction to name a few.
What if you knew in one day, you could:
🌱Save 1,100 gallons of water and 45 pounds of grain
🌱Save 30-square-feet of forest land and reduce your carbon footprint by half
🌱Defend our ocean and stand against oppression and injustice
🌱Reject a system commodifying living beings, marginalizing the poor and destroying Earth
🌱Save a life and protect the lives of many others...
Simply by being vegan—for the animals, for the people and for the planet.
Would you choose to? 💚
✌🏻️❤️💦🌊🌎

One of the reasons why we need to work hard to protect our environment and our planet is because it is our responsibility to ensure that our children and their children get to witness the same beauty that we do. The biggest mistake we make is thinking that we cannot make a difference but a significant ripple can start with a single good deed.

We also tend to shop more during ramadan as our cooking schedules change. Please try to carry a reusable bag when you go shopping and do your part to save our planet today!

4 of the 7 species of Sea Turtle's can be found on the Ningaloo Reef 🐢🐢🐢🐢 They are the Green (most common), Loggerhead, Hawksbill & the Leatherback. .
It isn't uncommon for these cruisey little dudes (Green's get up to 1.2m in size!) to be seen on tour taking a nap on the soft coral, feeding on seaweed or coming up for a breath of air. .
Tomorrow night at 7pm our staff member & Marine Biologist @bethrainbull 🤓 will be giving a presentation about these ancient marine reptiles in our @coralbayeco office (next to Fins cafe) 📝. Join us for this free event & get to know the locals a little better 🐢🤸

Shark bait!!! Lol! 🦈
Saw this incredible guy yesterday and my first wobbegong today! Glad Mr wobbegong was the family friendly shark variety! .
Amazing weekend of swimming!
So blessed to have a protected marine park in our own back yard!
.
When you see fish on mass swimming happily with humans it tends to make your heart soar! I know - I’m a bit weird! Most people are not fishy fans!!
.
Also makes me so glad that the body products I use - moisturisers, lotions, sunscreen, hair products etc - are doing absolutely no harm to our beautiful waters! When we take a dip it’s not just our body (wearing a pair of togs - or not!) that goes in to the water - but all the personal care products we put on our skin & hair too!
So I ask you this... are your products clean and green? Or might they be hurting our fishy friends? 🐠🐡🐟🦑

Sometimes, you don’t, or can’t see the value in something, until it’s gone.
_
During the last North Coast Shark Net Trial in this past month alone, an endangered great hammerhead was killed and a critically endangered leatherback turtle caught.
_
Nets in our beaches are proven NOT to protect swimmers and surfers. Instead, they act as floating death nets.
_
Help us get see the nets removed forever from our waters. Take 5 minutes to fill out the community survey on your thoughts of the North Coast Shark Net trial. We are giving away 2 x hammerhead cork screws for taking part. Check out our story or previous post!

As the winter wind begins to bite, hordes head to the beaches of South Africa’s east coast with nets, fishing rods or scuba gear in hand. The coastline is washed silver with millions of sardines fighting furiously for survival. This is the sardine run.

Currently our oceans are in crisis with single use plastic one of the major issues. There is a lot corporations that produce these products can do such as increasing their support for recycling and choose more sustainable materials. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sad news about a giant whale shark caught in trawler near Phuket. This is not only outright breaking the law since the species is strictly protected but also reflect numerous challenges facing this gentle marine giant. Unsustainable fisheries and bycatch is probably number one threat. Increasingly, unregulated tourism is also putting more pressures to their survival with looming boat strike and rampant marine plastics. We need to be more serious about protecting and saving this marine wonder who have brought so much joy to divers and significant benefit to tourism and local economy. #savethewhalesharks #whaleshark #rhincodontypus #marinemegafauna #endangeredspecies #redlist #iucn #endangered #phuket #thailand #maldives #andaman #indianocean #marineconservation #saveourseas #thaistagram

Brown bag at the New England Aquarium celebrating all the work we do at Oceanswell with doughnuts. Everything from our short to long term training programmes for Sri Lankan students, the continued support we provide to these students, our artists-on-the-water programme, our efforts to create a more scientifically knowledgable and ocean-conscious public through efforts like Marine Conservation Conversations (coming up on the 25 May!), the important cutting-edge science we do including our most recent publication that shows that Sri Lankan blue whales feed on shrimp and not krill and everything in between! Always a pleasure to share stories, get feedback and build new collaborations that will involve creating new opportunities for others to get involved in marine conservation (look out world!). .

If someone had of told me two years ago ‘you’re going to leave your job working with sealions and get a scholarship with rolex and travel the world and then you’re going to move to Tasmania and live in a tree house’ I would have laughed at them.
But here I am. Exactly where I am supposed to be.

Tasseled Wobbegong Shark - Eucrossorhinus dasypogon. #didyouknow This highly unusual looking shark is superbly camouflaged among sun-dappled coral by its beautiful mosaic markings of dark narrow lines and spots set against a yellowish-brown body. They are also referred to as Carpet Sharks and it's easy to see why. The scientific name for the Tasselled Wobbegong roughly translates to 'well fringed nose with shaggy beard', referring to the distinctive mass of branching skin flaps that run continuously around the jaws, forming a lattice-like ‘beard’. They are ambush predators and will quite happily stay in the same place for days, normally under ledges and table corals. They can grow up to 1.8 metres in length (5.9ft) These guys are all over Raja Ampat. if you have been to Raja Ampat and did not see one, ask for a refund !! Shot with the Olympus TG-4 and UWL-04 Wide angle lens by Fisheye Japan.

Hawksbill Turtle - Eretmochelys imbricata #didyouknow they are named for its narrow head and sharp, bird-like beak, hawksbills can reach into cracks and crevices of coral reefs looking for food. Their diet is very specialized, feeding almost exclusively on sponges. One of the smaller turtles, adults weigh between 100-200 pounds (45 – 90 kg) and reach 2-3 feet (roughly .5 to 1 meter) in length.
These turtles can be found peacefully enjoying Komodo National Park
**IUCN Status: Critically Endangered / Population Trend: Decreasing
They are threatened by consumption of their eggs, unsustainable fishing practices, use of their shells for jewellery, and unsustainable coastal development.

Sperm whales are the largest predators in the world and one of the deepest diving mammals. Physiologically they are one of the most interesting creatures you can think of, in my humble opinion.
For whale watchers this species is often one of the most "boring" to watch, but if you feel that way, then you're missing out on something incredible. They are incredibly intelligent, social and gentle beings. And just like any of the other great whales, they were severely hunted, mainly for the oil in their large heads and the oil extracted from the thick layer of blubber around their bodies.
In the Azores the last Sperm whale was hunted in 1987 and the islands have made a transition into a successful whale watching industry. Sperm whales are one of the resident species here and their numbers are increasing. .
