🚢 En noviembre de 2018 llevamos en nuestro viaje piloto a 12 niños de la isla Isabela a una gran aventura 🐠 conocimos varias #islas , aprendimos de la historia natural y humana de las islas, los principales retos de conservación, de las profesiones del mar y recogimos basura, mientras disfrutamos de la vida en las islas sin celulares! Incluso bailamos a bordo del *Samba Y/M* 🌊 aprendimos con el capitán, el maquinista, el marinero, los guías naturalistas, las educadoras, y la comunicadora 🦀 El objetivo es llevar a *TODOS* l @s estudiantes de 12 años de las islas a conocer sus islas en un crucero educativo y transformar así la cultura de las Islas en una cultura conocedora, respetuosa y armoniosa con su entorno 🐡 Son tiempos difíciles en #Galápagos pero seguimos trabajando, para que ese sueño se cumpla Les seguiremos contando! Es bueno tener buenas noticias en medio de tanta incertidumbre! Mientras tanto, recordamos el viaje piloto con esta bella foto de @lizadiazlalova que hoy nos recordó ese viaje! @kapaluca @veraschiess @lera_lera_candelera @juasin22 #educacion #oceaneducation #environmentaleducation

Feeling stressed but don't live near the ocean? ⁠ ⁠ Don't worry! The mind is a pretty powerful thing and can be calmed down with some simple visualisation techniques. ⁠ ⁠ Take five minutes, close your eyes and try visualising the sea 🌀🌀🌀.⁠ ⁠ Feel the sun on your face and the sand on your toes. Hear the sounds of the waves breaking in the distance. Smell the salt in the fresh air.⁠ ⁠ Feels nice, right?⁠ ⁠ Studies have shown that visualisation techniques, especially of “ocean-scapes”, effectively decreases stress levels and it's super easy - try it out! ⁠ ⁠ #TMDdoesBlueHealth ⁠ ⁠ @themarinediaries is a non-profit ocean science communication initiative - tag us to be featured⁠ ⁠ 📸 @yaaniu

Repost from @freshnsaltyeco • Here is the second part of our Queen Conch series, read more below! 👇 . 💋 Our journey begins when Mama and Papa conch get together for internal fertilization AKA sexy time. Female can store that sperm for couple of weeks, meeting more suitors in the meantime! So when she finally lays up to 500,000 eggs in the form of sticky threads, they are well mixed genetically! However, less than 1% will make it into adulthood. . 🥚Sitting in the shallows, eggs are well camouflaged with sand all around. After 3-5 days they are ready to hatch, beginning their larval stage, when they are call 'veligers'. During these infant days, they float freely in the ocean, using special lobes to supply themselves with ocean and catch microscopic algae snacks. . 🧑‍🎓 Around the end of the first month of their lives, veligers are ready to graduate, transforming into conch form, strongly resembling the adult, but only 1mm in size! Beginning this stage of life, they come back to the seagrass beds and spend about a year buried in sand. . 🏗️ Queen Conch can't get a break with building its shell. They start right after hatching and gradually build it up, whorl by whorl. Construction material - calcium carbonate - is taken directly from the water and secreted from the mantle. Once they reach about 30cm, Queen Conch starts working on thickness, rather than size. We will talk about it in the next post! . 👏 Queen Conch series is prepared in cooperation with incredible Dr Megan Davis @queenconch2020 , Research Professor at @floridaatlantic , @harborbranch . She first met these giant snails at the age of 16, and stayed fascinated ever since! We will talk about her ground-breaking conservation work next time, so stay tuned! . 👉 Follow @freshnsaltyeco to get a clue what's in the blue! . . . #freshnsalty #clueintheblue #queenconch #seagrass #tinytiny #snailsofinstagram #giantsnail #shellart #spiralout #marinebiologist #marineanimals #oceananimals #oceaneducation #sealifeart #marinebio #sciart #scienceandart #scienceillustration #seacreature #underwaterlife #marinescience #oceanawareness #educating #comicartists #cartoondesign #marinelifematters #conservationthrougheducation

SO GOOD THEY NAMED IT TWICE! Porpita porpita, or blue button, is a marine organism found in the warmer, tropical and sub-tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans, as well as the Mediterranean Sea and eastern Arabian Sea. This Blue Button Jellyfish, is actually a hydroid made up of individual zooids that float together and function differently: some eat, some reproduce, some defend, etc. However, it it not a siphonophore. Porpita porpita are hermaphrodites and have two main body structures.  The first part is the float which is a round disc like shape and is typically around 30mm wide. It has a single point underneath the float used for taking in nutrients and to expel waste - yep it poops out of it’s mouth! The second part of the structure is the hydroid colony - the bright blue tentacles that can also be, turquoise or yellow. Each strand of tentacle has its own branchlets with stinging nematocysts on the ends. While it's definitely not a non-stinging jellyfish, the sting is pretty mild and generally harmless, although it can irritate human skin.

#DidYouKnow that flying fishes glide above the water surface to avoid predation? These fishes can “fly” for a long distance to avoid getting caught by swordfish, dolphins, or other open ocean predators. 🐬 There are approximately 65 species of flying fishes, which do not truly fly nor change direction. The tropical two-wing and four-wing flying fishes glide with their enlarged pectoral fins, contributing to their ability to “fly” up to 655 feet! These species feed on plankton, crustaceans, and other small invertebrates. Have you ever seen these beautiful fish flying around in the open ocean? 🌊 Photo: Wikimedia Commons

Many people find SCUBA diving calming and peaceful. ⁠ ⁠ Focusing on slow, deep breathing is an important part of SCUBA diving as it optimises air consumption and allows you to stay under the water for longer. Deep breathing is an ancient meditation and relaxation exercise, so it's no wonder that diving can feel soothing.⁠ ⁠ SCUBA diving also enables you to focus on the present and be mindful of your body as you navigate through the cool blue water.⁠ ⁠ When you're immersed in the water, the world suddenly becomes very quiet. You can often only hear the repetitive sound of your own breathing, which can⁠ feel relaxing and grounding.⁠ ⁠ Do you love SCUBA diving? Tell us why!⁠ ⁠ #TMDdoesBlueHealth ⁠ ⁠ @themarinediaries is a non-profit ocean science communication initiative - tag us to be featured⁠ ⁠ 📸 @moment_captchers

#DYK the MSC is engaged with lobster fisheries in South Africa? 🦞 The East Coast rock lobster fishery forms part of the MSC’s #FishForGood project. Through this ‘Pathway to Sustainability’ project supported by @postcodeloterij , the MSC aims to guide fisheries on their journey toward improved fishing practices. Coastal Transkei communities are heavily dependent on the ocean for their livelihoods. “You can head to the ocean and you will surely come back with something. Even just one lobster can feed our entire household” - Vusumzi Matomane, local lobster fishman.

In the first days of 2020, I took this photo. I saw this year as a road in construction, still very uncertain. Today, after almost 10 months, I come back to the truths of this image. We never thought of a 2020 so foggy, as represented there. We passed and went through countless trials, and each one with the personal struggles we won. If you take a more careful look the sun is there, it is present despite the clouds. So are we! Our inner Light is there, sometimes covered by existential cages, limiting beliefs, fears, insecurities and our shadow. As 2020 presented itself to you, what needed to be faced and worked on? How do you reestable and find your Light?✨🧘🏼‍♀️ Nos primeiros dias de 2020 retratei esta imagem. Via este ano como um caminho em contrução, ainda muito incerto. Hoje, passados quase 10 meses volto a me deparar com as verdades desta imagem. Nunca pensamos um 2020 tão nebuloso, como retratado aí. Passamos e seguimos passando por inúmeras provações, e cada um com suas lutas pessoais fomos vencendo. Se dedicar um olhar mais cuidadoso o sol está ali, está presente apesar das nuvens. Assim somos nós! Nossa Luz interior está ali, as vezes encoberta por jaulas existenciais, crenças limitantes, medos, inseguranças e nossa sombra. Como 2020 se apresentou pra você, o que precisou ser encarado e trabalhado? Como você reestabelesce e encontra sua Luz?✨🧘🏼‍♀️ #cureoceanlove #ocean #sunset #island #sea #oceano #flow #womanpower #resiliência #respirar #curaancestral #sagradofeminino #meditação #yoga #scubagirl #sealover #oceaneducation #dance #feminist #marinescience #womaninoceanscience #ods14 #travel #oceanlife #wanderlust #nature #trip #photography #traveladdict #love

The ocean has many skin healing properties. It’s naturally abundant in healing minerals that have been proven to boost skin health and treat all kinds of skin conditions. Don’t underestimate the healing potential of a little time in the ocean and some sunshine.

The last of our little babies to leave their rockpool and make their way into the bigger nursery 🍼🦈 When young, brownbanded bamboo sharks have distinct stripes to disguise themselves as sea snakes 🐍 and hide among rocks but as they get older these stripes fade until they’re completely grey all over!
