Who else started #Dedicate today with @adrienelouise? Day 1: a reminder that you don’t have to do anything crazy or spectacular looking to feel your whole body work! And how perfect was the intention since discernment is my mantra for 2019!💧💧💧 Aside from #waterbonds, I am a yoga teacher and Ayurveda practitioner. I find a direct connection between conservation and eastern medicine all the time. It’s all about connection, energy, and love. But even as a yoga professional, I often need a teacher and @adrienelouise has been an amazing one. I highly recommend giving her videos a try. When we care for ourselves, we not only feel better and do better work out in the world, but also raise the vibration around us. So if you want to change the world and protect the planet, get your own vibes up! (And let me know- I’d love to see who else is taking on this journey) #conservation#nobluenogreen#yoga#yogawithadriene#findwhatfeelsgood#dedicate#ayurveda#waterbonds
Manatees were the first marine animal I ever fell truly in love with, and while I talk about sharks a lot now, manatees remain my favorites. There’s something so special about them. They’ve also been in dire need of protection since even before I fell in love with them as a child. One thing you can do to help, no matter where you live, is picking organic foods and products. Runoff of chemicals from farming has a direct impact on their habitat (and so many other animals, including us humans!). #Repost@ecoceanic with @get_repost ・・・ #ManateeAwarenessMonth has officially begun I hope you've enjoyed the manatee posts 💙 swimming with manatees is definately on my bucketlist. However ensuring they have a future is our priority. Are you ready to make a difference and help us work toward healthy coastal habitats so our ocean's manatees can thrive? help us sustain vital programs that confront ocean acidification, combatting marine debris, addressing overfishing and more. 🌊🐄💙🧜♀️ #protectwhatyoulove#ecoceanic#manatee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀///// ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Via @seeker manatees may not move very fast, but it is still tricky for scientists to track where these elusive swimmers have been. Now, thanks to a new environmental DNA test developed by @USGS geneticist Margaret Hunter, it is possible to easily test water samples to see if a manatee has been in the area in the last month. The test can detect traces amounts of a manatee's skin, saliva, waste, or water vapor from an exhaled breath. The new test could help us better understand manatee population fluctuations and where they move seasonally.
We are all responsible and our everyday actions matter a lot. But, who we select to oversee protections, international agreements and sustainability efforts really matter too. The environment is an issue we can all get behind because it’s the one issue that affects every single one of us. Let’s find politicians who are willing to take the right steps forward.

But plastic, offshore oil drilling, water pollution and sea level rise are threatening this precious resource. We all have a responsibility to protect our ocean for future generations. 🌊🌊🌊 Join the us and take action. (link in profile) #USOA#SurfriderFoundation
