Pygmy Seahorse 😍 - Fun fact ❤️ : It was the first species of pygmy seahorse to be found and it was found unexpectedly by the scientist George Bargibant when he was collecting specimens of sea fans (gorgonians), in which is the natural habitat of the seahorse.

Earth’s oceans are warmer now than at any point since humans started systematically tracking their temperatures, according to research published on January 16 in Advances in Atmospheric Sciences. The oceans have sopped up more than 90 percent of the heat trapped by human-emitted greenhouse gases, slowing the warming of the atmosphere—but causing many other unwelcome changes to the planet’s climate. Around Antarctica, yet another new study suggests, ice is melting about six times faster than it was in the 1980s—an increase due in part to the warmer waters lapping at the continent’s edge. 🔻🔻🔻 This is what we need to raise awareness of. The more you learn, the more you’ll get motivated to do something. 🔻🔻🔻 Then you can understand the basics of what you can do to become more eco-friendly and make different choices on a personal level that start to change your awareness and you can start practicing conservation as you will become more aware of the consumption of resources 🙏🏼🍃
NEW PARTNER ANNOUNCEMENT!! The Brighton Dolphin Project has teamed up with @thesocialsocietybrighton a Hove-based community platform that hosts social events for social good. They support grassroots organisations each year to raise funds, develop skills, grow projects, and raise awareness by hosting a variety of fun community-based events. As part of their support, we are going to organising a boat trip for their members as well as the screening of an award-winning marine conservation film in Brighton. Thank you so much for your support! We really look forward to working with you and meeting your members to engage with them about marine conservation. #brightondolphin#brighton#brightondolphinproject#brighton_ig #marinelife#marineconservation#marinebiology#charity#charities#community#collaboration#film
@juansharks - '@oceanramsey gently guides one of the largest documented #greatwhitesharks away from our @oneoceandiving shark research boat in #hawaii#oahu The first great white shark I ever swam with was in 2005 off my home #haleiwa with a similarly large great #whiteshark who also rocked the boat I was on at the time working with sharks. I guess I am lucky that history repeats and not much has changed which made me confident but not complacent during this encounter but what has changed is shark populations are severely declining but for the first time ever I’ve seen this huge shift in perception in the last 5 years mostly due to imagery and the work that @oceanramsey and the team at #oneoceandiving and @oneoceandiving program and conservation and research division does (with people like @mermaid_kayleigh and @forrest.in.focus ). I hope my conservation images like this help people to question their perceptions and realize the beauty, and importance of sharks and I hope that they inspire the kind of compassion and connection we need to have with nature and sharks, to help protect them and #coexist along side them. You don’t have to love them but they do need to exist, they are absolutely critical for the health of marine ecosystems which all life relies on. Yesterday I filled up 500gb with just photos so many more videos and photos to share from this incredible encounter that lasted all day.' | Photo by @juansharks @oceanramsey
Wunderpus Octopus. Such a beautiful intelligent creature to observe. This was our first encounter and it was certainly not as shy as the similar Mimic Octopus - it actually came towards the camera lense...we too were being observed 😆 With @bluemotionambon

Plastic straws account for 0,03% of the 8 million metric tons of plastics estimated to enter the oceans in a given year. Meanwhile, discarded fishing nets account for 46% of buoyant plastics found in the great pacific garbage patch, while other fishing gear makes up a good chunk of the rest. If you care about plastic pollution in the ocean, boycott fishing and stop eating seafood today.
This sleeping and probably dreaming #filefish was hovering next to a jetty pillar during a lovely night dive in #rajaampat. Even though diving with a macro lens, I had to take this shot :) . Taken with an #olympuscamera EM1 in #nauticamhousings with some #inon z240
