Stand up and celebrate #WorldOceansDay!! Please join me, @cristinamittermeier and some of the @sea_legacy team at the @paulnicklengallery on 347 West Broadway #NYC this Saturday as we celebrate #worldoceansweek. We felt very lucky to have Dr. Sylvia Earle in the gallery this week. She is such an eloquent speaker and it rings so true when she says “No Blue, No Green, No Us”. Every second breath we take comes from the ocean. We can either learn to hold our breaths or perhaps we should just protect the lungs and heart of our planet. The concept of sending someone to Mars is pretty cool but why not put that same energy, time and money into protecting our life sustaining, complex and fragile life support system that surrounds us everyday. The air, the water, the soil, the food, the climate are all right here…....balanced to perfection through 4 billion years of evolution and yet we treat it with such disregard and abuse. Come and learn about the things we can do for our planet.

instantesyletras's Instagram Photo - @Regrann from @paulnicklen - Just minutes old, a newborn elephant seal pup opens its eyes for the first time and greets its new world of ice, snow and wind in South Georgia, Antarctica. At birth, an elephant seal weighs approximately 50 pounds but within 3 weeks, it may reach an astonishing 400 pounds from its mothers rich milk. She will then wean her pup and head back to sea to replenish her own depleted resources. On this #worldoceansweek , let’s celebrate all creatures in the sea and realize the fragility of our oceans and how we are all interconnected. Our oceans are the foundation of all life on Earth. Come celebrate the ocean this Saturday in #NYC at the @paulnicklengallery. 347 West Broadway. 3 pm to 8pm. @sea_legacy #antarctica #seal #tbt #instagood #worldoceanday #worldoceansweek - #regrann

Photograph by paulnicklen // Happy #worldoceansweek and #worldoceansday. A Gentoo penguin cautiously peeks beneath the oceans surface in fear of leopard seals. As I reflect on my many years spent both on and in our great oceans of the world I look back with such gratitude but I also realize all of the work ahead. When we stand on the shoreline and look out over the sea, we assume that all is well, however, when you lower your mask below the surface you see a very different story. You learn that half the coral reefs are gone, 90 percent of the big fish are gone, ice shelves in Antarctica are breaking up at unprecedented rates and sea ice is at its lowest extent in recorded history. I urge everyone to learn about how vital our oceans are to all life on Earth. As the great Dr. Sylvia Earle says, “No Blue, No Green, No Us”. #followme on paulnicklen and come and visit us this Saturday at the paulnicklengallery in #NYC and learn about how we can better protect our oceans.

the_explorers_club's Instagram Photo - The summer season of exploration got off to an exciting start in June as #TheExplorersClub hosted its first ever #WorldOceansWeek alongside and in cooperation with the @UnitedNations #OceanConference.

As the U.N. hosted thousands of scientists, researchers, artists. and explorers from around the world for days of intensive dialogue on the importance of preserving our oceans ecosystems and resources, #TEC and its extraordinary members hosted scores of #OceansWeek attendees from early morning to late at night with a series of prominent lectures, film screenings and social programs designed to enhance the total Oceans Week experience.

We invite you now to join Club President Ted Janulis for an exciting “up close and personal” look at the important role TEC played in Oceans Week.

Beds of sea pens can be found extending off the ocean floor like an underwater forest on both the west and east coast of Canada, creating essential habitat and refuge for many little critters. 
Sea pens are one of six species to be protected under the proposed Marine Protected Area (MPA) in the Laurentian Channel off the southwest coast of Newfoundland, a proposal that’s expected to be announced this month by Fisheries and Oceans Canada for public input. However, this MPA will still be open to oil and gas activity and shipping, except for a small area marked off to protect sea pens like these. Allowing destructive activity of this nature sets an incredibly poor precedent for future MPAs in Canada. “As the process moves forward (in the East), regulations/negotiations go up and protection level goes down,” said Linda Nowlan, an environmental lawyer at @wcelaw. “If you have an oil rig in Banff National Park, people are going to see it, and they are going to say, ‘Bah! This makes no sense!’” echoes geographer Rodolphe Devillers in @hakaiinstitute Magazine’s article, "Canada’s New Marine (Less) Protected (Than It Could Have Been) Area". Reduced boundaries and cutting corners to allow destructive industry like oil and gas ignores the very foundation that provides for coastal life.

natgeoocean's Instagram Photo - Conservation takes a team and teams come in many forms. Each one of our partner organizations that we are acknowledging as part of World Oceans Week has a team, or several, working towards specific goals with passion, purpose and a knowing that the ocean, and the planet, needs our help. The teams within these organizations make up a larger team of conservation warriors who dedicate more than just time and expertise to their work. They bring heart. This larger team, in turn, creates a global team and with that, there are no limits to what we can do to ensure the future vitality of our oceans.⠀
⠀
Today we are celebrating The Marine Conservation Institute, @savingoceans. The Marine Conservation Institute has many important projects underway, with a current focus on 1) The Global Ocean Refuge System, GLORES, that is designed to catalyze strong protection for 30% of the ecosystems in each marine biogeographic region of the world’s oceans by 2030 and 2) MPAtlas.org, an online resource and webapp that lets users discover the world's marine protected areas and see amounts and types of protections within regions around the global ocean.⠀⠀

Thank you to The Marine Conservation Institute for this, and other important work. ⠀⠀

The seal population of Grey Seals and Harbour Seals evolved well the past years. Current census show a growth. They're numbered 5.000 (approx.) on the Farnes this year. 
Making a great attraction for divers. Seals love the smooth rocks out at Longstone Lighthouse. They come there to scratch their backs. If your lucky diving there Seals will come an ask you to give them a hand with that. 
We got to honor and protect these great marine habitat. It's protected and managed by the #NationalTrust. @nationaltrust

midori.theory's Instagram Photo - 🍃Marine debris is human waste disposed into the marine environment. 6 million tons (as heavy as 1 million elephants) of debris is dumped into the ocean every year. These floating pieces of trash accumulate in the 4 main gyres of the ocean, forming massive garbage patches. The Great Pacific garbage patch alone is twice the size of Texas. Floating trash, together with those that have sunk to the bottom, kill 100,000 marine animals a year.
Plastic is a major concern especially for sea turtles. As sea turtles mainly feed on jellyfish, numerous turtles mistake floating plastic bags as food. The litter can block their digestive system, leading to death. It is not uncommon for turtles to get entangled within discarded fishing nets and plastic rings, causing fatal injuries, starvation, suffocation infection, drowning or abnormal growth. 86% of all sea turtle species are impacted by plastic debris.
Seabirds, such as albatrosses, travel great distances overseas to bring back food for their young. With the ever growing amount of plastic in the ocean, oblivious parents feed their children bits of plastic, causing wounds in their organs and a buildup of trash in their guts. The end result is death by the thousands. Research has shown that 90% of seabirds are affected by plastic, and 1 million seabirds are killed as a result every year. 
But this is not a lost cause. Even small life choices can lead to significant results.
Here are some ways we can help:
🌱Buy products with recyclable or less packaging - product packaging makes up most of the marine debris.
🌱Opt for reusable containers instead of plastic cups - places such as Starbucks offer discounts for customers who bring their own mugs for their orders.
🌱Use tote bags - this greatly reduces the usage of one-time plastic bags.
🌱Dispose of your trash properly - this reduces the chances of the trash ending up in the ocean.
🌱Finally, spread awareness - Educate your friends on the devastating effects of plastic, and advocate a more sustainable lifestyle.

davidmkandelhardt's Instagram Photo - Puffin taking off from Cliff at Farnes Islands. 
Had a beautiful full sunset cruise with @farne_islands and Serenity II the other day. Lot's of Guillemot Jumplings around as well as Shags, Puffins and a few Gannets. 
At the peak of the breeding season the Islands are tremendously busy with birds feeding young. This Puffin was just taking off from his spot on the cliffs. Young non breeding birds are often gathered in groups on the rocks.

irishparadox's Instagram Photo - @Regrann from @paulnicklen - Stand up and celebrate #WorldOceansDay!! Please join me, @cristinamittermeier and some of the @sea_legacy team at the @paulnicklengallery on 347 West Broadway #NYC this Saturday as we celebrate #worldoceansweek. We felt very lucky to have Dr. Sylvia Earle in the gallery this week. She is such an eloquent speaker and it rings so true when she says “No Blue, No Green, No Us”. Every second breath we take comes from the ocean. We can either learn to hold our breaths or perhaps we should just protect the lungs and heart of our planet. The concept of sending someone to Mars is pretty cool but why not put that same energy, time and money into protecting our life sustaining, complex and fragile life support system that surrounds us everyday. The air, the water, the soil, the food, the climate are all right here…....balanced to perfection through 4 billion years of evolution and yet we treat it with such disregard and abuse. Come and learn about the things we can do for our planet. #hedoesnotspeakforme #speakfornature #earth #oceans #life #beauty #gratitude #nature
