Water Bonds

This is blowing my mind! While white sharks live in all oceans of the world, it’s incredibly rare to see one in Hawaii. Maybe word got out about the dead sperm whale buffet off Oahu?

And dolphins! 💙💙💙

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)

A good reminder to not just get down about the state of things.

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.

Coral reefs also protect shorelines from ocean swells and surges and create surf breaks. They’re good things to look out for! And, those chemicals in sunscreens aren’t good your health either!

Coral reefs, one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet, are very sensitive to pollutants. Hawaii recently banned sunscreens that contain the chemicals: #oxybenzone and #octinoxate Check your sunscreen labels for this toxic ingredients and consider alternatives like covering up with UV 30-50 swimwear like rash guards, dive pants, or wetsuits all of which also protect from jellyfish which are responsible for over 40 deaths each year. Or try a natural organic based sunscreen like @allgoodbrand

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.

We are the United States and Oceans of America. Clean water and healthy beaches are vital to coastal communities, ocean recreation and people’s livelihoods. 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

Something about the water here today reminded me so much of the cloudy days we had driving up the east side of Oahu a couple weeks ago. Was nice to have the reminder that #waterbonds us, despite the distance. #lakemichigan #greatlakes #oahu #mke #milwaukee #water #waves #conservation #nobluenogreen
