Proud to team up with Represent to protect our oceans. Every purchase of our @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn oceans apparel will benefit #oceanconservation organizations like Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Get yours at represent.com/ldf. Link in bio. ---- @SeaShepherdsscs has been removing threats to the smallest porpoise in the world, the critically endangered vaquita. There are less than 30 #vaquita left! In addition to patrolling the area for poachers, SSCS vessels have worked tirelessly in the #Gulf of #California to remove dangerous fishing gear, that entangles, and often kills, the vaquita. Since February 2016, SSCS has retrieved more than 385 sets of illegal fishing nets.

#Regram #RG @mission_blue: Make your voice heard to protect the Goliath grouper, an iconic Coastal Southeast Florida Hope Spot species! Goliath groupers have been listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN and have been protected in South Florida waters since 1990. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is gathering public input on the future management of Goliath grouper, including the potential for a limited open season. Let's make sure they stay protected. @SharkTeamOne ⠀ ⠀ Photo by @jim_abernethy⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #NoBlueNoGreen #HopeSpots #OceanOptimism #MissionBlue #SylviaEarle #OceanConservation #MarineConservation #ThinkBlue #GoliathGrouper

#Regram #RG @world_wildlife: Photo by @CristinaMittermeier / SeaLegacy // A King penguin surveys its breakfast—a krill rich in the protein which makes it a foundational food for all sea life, from penguin chicks to the leviathan blue whales that swim these Antarctic waters. SeaLegacy recently went on a mission to the Antarctic Peninsula to document the rapidly expanding krill fisheries and their effect on this fragile ecosystem. #SpeakForNature. The theme for #WorldOceansDay 2017 was “Our Oceans, Our Future.” @Sea_Legacy was in New York City to take part in the @UnitedNations Ocean Conference. #SeaLegacy | #ClimateChangeIsReal | #ClimateChange | #OceanConference | #TheWatersEdge | #SeaLegacygivesback | #CHOW2017

We must protect our #oceans. By purchasing a limited-edition @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn oceans t-shirt or sweatshirt you will directly support our partners like Global Fishing Watch (pictured here) and their ocean conservation efforts. Click link in bio. Global Fishing Watch is an online platform that launched in September 2016 by Google in partnership with @Oceana and Skytruth, to provide the world’s first global view of commercial fishing activities. At any moment, 200,000 vessels are publicizing their locations via the Automatic Identification System (AIS). Using satellite technology and GPS tracking, Global Fishing Watch is shining a light on illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing. These activities deplete fish populations, hurt the global economy, and threaten the lives of many fishermen. In an unprecedented move, the countries of Indonesia and Peru have agreed to share their data, setting an example of transparency and collaboration for our world’s oceans.

#Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange: Photo by Sima Diab/ @sima_diab for @everydayclimatechange A shipwright climbs a ladder to a disused fishing boat in a shipyard in Alexandria, Egypt along the coast line. Residential buildings are built alarmingly close to the shoreline putting lives and infrastructure at risk for habitual flooding and structural damage. With rising sea levels due to global warming many of the buildings in Alexandria are constantly battered by the salt water and sea air.

#Regram #RG @world_wildlife: Oceans make up 95% of the space available to life on Earth and cover 71% of our planet’s surface. They are home to an estimated 2 million species, from the largest animal that has ever lived—the blue whale—to the tiniest bacteria. At WWF, we are committed to creating and maintaining healthy and resilient marine ecosystems that support abundant biodiversity, sustainable livelihoods, and thriving economies. #WorldOceansDay

#Regram #RG @natgeo: Photo by @BrianSkerry. Happy World Oceans Day! On this day - when the world celebrates the magnificence of Earth’s oceans - I urge you to think about the need for conservation of our water planet. Approximately 98% of Earth’s biosphere - where life can exist on the planet - is ocean, and yet only about 3% is protected. Science tells us that, for a healthy planet, at least 30% of the oceans must be protected. We have a lot more work to do. Every other breath we takes comes from the sea, with more than 50% of the oxygen needed to survive generated by the ocean. If for no other reason than our own survival, ocean ecosystems must be conserved. The oceans give us so many riches, and taking care of the sea means a healthy future for all. Today, I will be speaking to world leaders at the General Assembly of the United Nations about the need to protect our water planet. I hope you join me in pushing for greater protection of our seas.

Now more than ever, the world is looking for bold leadership at every level to tackle climate change and environmental conservation issues. I am honored to work with President Peña Nieto (@EPN) to ensure the future viability of marine life in the Gulf. This action is a critical step towards ensuring that the Gulf of California continues to be both vibrant and productive, especially for species like the critically endangered #vaquita. My foundation, @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn, and I look forward to continuing to work with President Peña Nieto, our NGO partners and the local communities in the Gulf to reach greater progress on these important issues.

#Regram #RG @unitednations: Forests benefit the environment, economy and society all at the same time. Forest management not only tackles climate change, but also increases water quality, biodiversity, pest control, employment and tourism opportunities, just to name a few. That's why @undp is working to enhance Turkey's forest management through a new system to take comprehensive carbon measurements, including through training the government's forestry workers.

#Regram #RG @wwf: #DYK that oceans absorb about 40% of the world’s carbon dioxide, and are an important source of protein for billions of people? 😯 Unfortunately, the health of our seas faces a multitude of challenges from overfishing to climate change. This #WorldEnvironmentDay, comment on this post to show you want better protection for our oceans!❤
