Stafflife on an tiny island at night🏝️🤙🏽 So many people working in hospitality in remote locations have encountered people questioning their "career" choices and felt a lack of support from their friends and families. Why would you leave an academic career behind or "ugh I could never live without [insert thing here]" or why wouldn't you want a job where you earn more money or why don't you come home and get a real life. That's all just because we're really really happy. And we make other people in need of a nice relaxed holiday happy too. It's definitely not always easy, it's painful to be away from family as it is but will our friends, relatives and everyone come with us to live out our dreams? Here we are enjoying every day we get to spend together having so much fun and making friends for life. I think that's success too, isn't it? (also, we get to swim with mantas and dolphins and also, we get to live on a paradise beach and also, we get amazing food prepared by the best chefs and also.. etc etc) Be kind always even if you don't agree with other people's definition of success😊📸Miriam Graf #greatbarrierreef#teamworkdreamwork#silentnights#tropicalqueensland#australia
🐠AZTech Reef Rescue is a go!🐠 Starting this Friday, AZTech streamers and their friends are going to be doing an all weekend stream to raise funds for @reef_restoration_foundation 🐡 They're a great organization that grows new coral branches to transplant onto damaged parts of The Great Barrier Reef. More details this week, including some RAD shirts you can buy to help support! #twitch#twitchstreamer#reef#coral#greatbarrierreef
What we imagine our planet's reefs to be is an image of the past. When you look up the Great Barrier Reef on Google, many images of bright colors and tropical marine life come up on your screen. But the ocean has changed. Over the past ten years or less, reefs around the world have already been bleached, and are now dieing. There is no more wishing to see Nemo in a lively, colorful oceanic community. These reefs are visited by thousands of people around the world, only to find the truth. We need to step up and help the reefs. Use less plastics, use harmless to oceans sunscreen, recycle, stop the dangerous amounts of bad fossil fuels, reduce the increasing percentage of climate change, and then we can help start a new world for the generations to come.

Also, visit https://www.barrierreef.org to learn about what we need to do to help. #gbr#greatbarrierreef#tenyearsago#tenyearchallenge#plastic#savethereefs#reef#ocean#google#amirzakeri#savetheworld#findingnemo
I’m excited to announce a $50,000 donation from my humble self to the great charity #gbrlegacy to help them buy a new boat to further their studies of the #greatbarrierreef as there is a MASSIVE problem with the #coralreef here and all over the world with 30-40% destroyed already, 70% expected to disappear by 2030 and 90% destruction estimated by 2050 because while it’s definitely a sad situation, the cool thing is that #coralreefs can regenerate very quickly and if we change our habits just a little bit, it will go a long way in helping #savethereef so it’s up to us to do a better job in protecting our world’s natural resources. Most people think the reef doesn’t really apply to them (I used to think that too), but they’re wrong as 50-85% of the world’s oxygen is produced by marine life which needs the reef to survive...oh yes, it’s not just trees that help us breathe, reefs all over the world aka “rainforests of the sea” are ESSENTIAL to our existence and I’ve been learning SO MUCH about this problem this past week and I’m excited to share it all with you soon!
We just finished an amazing project filming and photographing the ScUber at Agincourt Reef, which is part of the amazing Great Barrier Reef in Far North Queensland. A handful of very lucky people got to experience this hour-long Uber Submarine ride exploring the reef. We had an awesome and talented team of 6 on this project and it was such a pleasure working with them! Congratulations to Tourism and Events Queensland for organising this incredible event! . . . . . #scuber#uber#submarine#aquaticasubmarines#queensland#travel#greatbarrierreef#agincourtreef#batterypoweredsubmarine
