זה בידיים שלך! 🐧
בשנות ה-90 גרינפיס הוביל את המאבק להכרזה על יבשת אנטארקטיקה כשמורת טבע עולמית. אחת ל-30 שנה מדינות העולם מתכנסות לצורך בחינת שינויים באמנה האנטארקטית - והשנה יש לנו הזדמנות לשינוי עצום:
כל מרקם החיים העדין שבאנטארקטיקה מתבסס על חסילון בשם ״קריל״ שמהווה המזון העיקרי שלהם וניצוד בכמויות על ידי בני האדם בשל ערכי האומגה 3 שיש בו.
לצערנו, במידה ובני האדם ימשיכו בציד הקריל - זה יהווה גזר דין מוות לפינגווינים, ללוויתנים, לציפורים ולכמעט כל בעלי החיים שבאנטארקטיקה.
עכשיו זו ההזדמנות שלנו. אין לבעלי החיים הללו אף אחד אחר שיגן עליהם מאחר ואין בני אדם ילידים באנטארקטיקה.
חתמו עכשיו על העצומה שבפרופיל שלנו וביחד נכריז על האוקיינוס האנטארקטי כשמורת הטבע הגדולה בעולם! 🐧
~You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand~ (Oceans by hillsong) ••
I love this song, and every time I get to see the ocean/ bay etc. my mind is always driven straight to the man up above God! He’s been so faithful and patient with me this last year, and has taught me so much without me sometimes noticing it. But all my thanks, all my glory, is to God. When I fail I know I can get back up because my lord has my back. So thankful for beautiful reminders like this beautiful scenery that remind me where my faith and prayers go ☝🏻🙏🏼 •
I didn’t realize how for granted I took California until we visited my parents this week & decided to take a spontaneous trip down Highway 1. Even on a cloudy day, there is SO much beauty everywhere you turn 😍 can’t believe I I had only done this drive once when I lived here!
Don’t change who you are or what you do for someone who doesn’t notice. Don’t go out of your way to do something for them if they don’t return. If they truly care about you they’ll come to you. #NotAlone#helpwillcome#beyou#oceans
‘Dreaming’... a short film about a young girl's dream of the ocean. Growing up in a township within walking distance from the sea, Sima dreams of what lies beneath the waves. Follow the link in @iamwater_foundation bio to see the whole film.
About this film & the I AM WATER ethos: Privilege and access are words we too easily forget when we ask people to buy into conservation. Access to our oceans - to the limitless potential one finds in oneself in an ocean, to a connection with its creatures - is often a question of privilege.
When we ignore this, we forget the very idea of community that underpins how we might live together on this planet. Martin Luther King Jr wasn’t talking about sustainability, or the health of our oceans when said these words (below), but we think they underscore what drives our mission at I AM WATER: to share experiences that connect us to our potential, to each other and to the ocean whose future we hold in our hands.
______________ “We are tied together in a single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. For some strange reason, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be” - #MLK
Thank you to the ALL MIGHTY Films team, Anthony Dickenson (@tonedefinitely) & Mark Harbour for making this happen, and the @farmfilmsa crew for the amazing support! 💙🙏
This diver had quite a surprise when a great white took his fin. This test bite left the diver unscathed, but was no doubt an intense moment. The shark came back to inspect the diver, most likely trying to decide if he was in fact a prey item. The shark decided he was not and left. One thing to note about this story is if you dress like prey and swim in an area with prey, you might be investigated as possible prey.
Would you have been scared? Amazed? Both?
Sharks are amazing creatures, but sadly have gotten themselves quite a bad reputation thanks to some bad press in the 70's.
What most people do not realize is exactly how harmless these animals are to humans, with fatalities from shark attacks averaging ten people annually. In stark comparison, humans kill 100 million sharks every year.
And in this spirit, we present to you our top 5 stupid things thatare more likely to kill you than a shark:
1. Champagne Corks kill an average of 24 people each year.
2. Tripping and falling kills roughly 6000 people every year.
3. Ladders kill an average of 355 people in the US alone every year.
4. Shopping on black friday kills an average of 550 people annually.
5. Falling out of bed in your sleep kills roughly 450 people annually in the US alone.
So can we stop hating on sharks please? Unless you want to hate on sleeping too?

If the bridge is the brains our vessels, the engine room is the heart, the galley is the lungs, the deck teams and their small, fast RHIB boats are the arms and muscle. On our IUU campaigns such as in Gabon or Liberia, our small boats function as the fast transport to get the relevant authority on a target vessel for inspections or arrest. The boats allow us to chase poachers away from sanctuaries and do reconnaissance missions, even at night. But this is only possible due to our amazing crew, and our fantastic donors who have stuck with us throughout the last 40 years.
What was your favorite campaign from the recent years? (📷 Melissa Romao / Sea Shepherd)
