Drum lines are set to be introduced to WA waters again in January 2019. Aside from the crazy logic that baiting large hooks will somehow not draw in more sharks to a beach, drum lines (SMART or not) are a death sentence to dolphins that take the bait. They are hoping for a 30 minute response time when an alert goes off that some animal has taken the bait, but dolphins can hold their breath for around 8 minutes.
Between 1962-2014 an estimated 1,014 dolphins fell victim to the cruel Queensland Shark Control Program which includes baited drum lines.
Let's aim for smarter ways to stay safe and respect our natural environment. Please sign and share the petition to start that conversation once again. Thank you.

Facty Friday moment.
We know less about the ocean and it's inhabitants than we do the moon.

I could go into the fact that over 90% of our fisheries are in a state of collapse thanks to #overfishing & #pollution

Instead let's #celebrate our glow in the dark deep sea neighbors.

It is 2018. 4 years have passed since this infographic was created detailing the horrific losses and the number will be so much higher now. Time to review these outdated practices and start respecting ALL life with non-lethal safety options for those who choose to recreate in the ocean.

Instead of CULLING sharks, maybe we should be CALLING for the responsible reporting of facts rather than embellishments to help ratings. Sensationalising every incident does nothing but create irrational fear over something which in reality is a more than 3 million to 1 chance of occurring. This pressure encourages politicians to invest our tax dollars into ‘shark control’ instead of issues that affect a lot more Australians. On average, one woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner. These are the real issues of our day. This is where we could be making a difference.

Let the station or editor know when you see irresponsible reporting.

A new study mentioned by the Australian Marine Sciences Association in their submission letter to the NSW Government on marine sanctuaries has found that fish populations in Australia have declined overall by about 33 percent between 2005 and 2015 due to fishing pressure. This is a huge loss of fish life and another good reason to #RestoreParadise and #KeepPlacesWIld by creating #MoreMarineSanctuaries. 📩💡You can read the full letter in a link on The Map to Paradise Facebook page. 🐟🐟🐟 Photo by Danielle Ryan @bluebottlefilms

Coastlines across Australia are becoming increasingly dangerous places to swim – for sharks. Despite the fact many shark species are in decline – along the coast of WA, QLD and NSW, sharks are being trapped in nets, painfully hooked and killed in an attempt to reduce encounters with beach-goers.

Whilst efforts to minimise risk to ocean users is important, baited drum lines are not safe. They act just like any baited hook, drawing the sharks closer to popular beaches. Drum lines are an attempt by governments to be seen to be doing something, but in the process, valuable resources are being chewed up and not directed towards effective risk mitigation.

Help put the pressure on now to ditch the drum lines and look at better solutions, by signing and sharing these petitions today:

I'm no cartoonist, but i did this a few years ago to illustrate the absurdity of attempting to catch a 'guilty' shark. As things get heated on the east coast with more drum lines going in and a few tiger sharks already caught and shot in response to recent shark incidents, the rhetoric is sounding very much like the one over here in Perth during the 'Imminent/Serious threat policy' (2014-15). The news reports are sounding like scripts from the JAWS movie… 'the moment the hunter becomes the hunted’, ’from beneath the dark waters bearing its jaws’, ‘thrashing in the water... went to get the BIGGER boat’, ‘the other a 3.3m monster'
Creating a fear frenzy is neither good or accurate reporting. Sadly the many animals that get caught on the drum lines include the endangered hammerhead sharks and dolphins. Please sign this petition to stop the drum lines: https://www.thepetitionsite.com/444/436/210/australia-is-baiting-and-killing-endangered-hammerhead-sharks/

So glad to have seen the article in #vantagepoint about #oceanfest18, world tour of a collection of the most amazing short #ocean #films from across the world. Went to #glive to see it. What a delight, but also quite distressing. I urge you to go & see it. Short films of note: #touchedbytheocean #bluethefilm #thebigwaveproject #scarletstale.
Can't wait to go see world touring #banffmountainfilmfestival in #Guildford April 2019!

Beach time. Conditions were great for freediving this weekend! The California Coast is a rich ecosystem of life and a great place to dive and learn about our ocean!

The New South Wales Government in Australia has backflipped on its support for a marine park for Sydney. It isn’t the first time this Government has withdrawn its support for marine sanctuaries. Australia has kickstarted a worrying trend, making the need to educate communities on protecting the sea more important than ever.

Regrann from @marinebiologist_mypassion_ - Fish seem to learn more the longer they school. As little fry, their clouds can be sparse or dense, but always a little chaotic as each fish swims around doing its thing. As the fish mature and grow, their schools take on a much more organized appearance, like these warm water blue striped grunts.

Let's start 2018 off with a fun project! I want to start trying to name the turtles we have here. Every chance I get I'll try to get a good photo of them and we can see if we start to recognize them.
I don't want to be the one giving the names out so I want you guys to help me! Post your suggestions and like the names you want and we will choose the best ones!

These California MPAs host incredible deep-sea ecosystems that we're only just beginning to understand!

Creatures as small as this crab play a huge role in maintaining a healthy ocean ecosystem. They help keep the sea clean as they scavenge for food such as moss, faeces, plankton, and decaying creatures. Learn more about our film by following the link in our bio.

Big weather moving towards the Cape Peninsula (wouldn't say so based on today's conditions).. so 100% chance we won't have the really good conditions we had last week when @just__in__salt took this amazing image.

He captured that strange and special moment when gravity works in reverse, and I have to surrender to the pull of the sky.. even though I always want to stay below the waves.
Don't rush it.. just surrender.
Like life sometimes.. don't fight it and don't rush it.
