    What do you think of this farmer’s plan to combat climate change and create new jobs by growing food underwater? The food we eat plays such a big role not just in our own health but also our planet’s health and this alternative food source is nutritious, high in protein and requires zero inputs, meaning no fresh water, no feed, no fertilizer or land which is much better for the environment. But we also know the thought of eating seaweed grosses many people out so please share this video with your followers, tag people who need to see it and leave comments below so we can have a productive discussion about this innovative idea!

    Here’s a big reason why 6 of the 7 sea turtle species are classified as threatened or endangered due to our irresponsible behavior. This sad video of a young sea turtle dragging a tangle of fishing nets and other debris through the ocean off the coast of the Canary Islands is just one example of the danger that #plasticpollution poses to the health of marine wildlife. Seabirds and whales are found dead with their bellies full of #plastic and coastal communities the world over are suffocated by plastic waste that comes from far-off shores. And in America, the plastics industry intends to expand production at least 35% by 2025 - with no plan for preventing more #plasticpollution from entering our ocean, or protecting frontline communities from toxic pollutants. Current US regulations are decades old and we think it's well past time for @epagov to update them. Will you join us and stand up for our ocean, our communities and help #endplasticpollution as it will only be possible if EVERYONE works together to actually make it happen! Please share this important video with your followers and tag people who need to see it to help us spread awareness about this urgent issue before it’s too late!

    ⚠WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES⚠ We keep getting asked about the live animals in the keychains that we’ve posted about so here’s one more heartbreaking video exposing this truly inhumane practice. We are allowing ourselves to exploit, hurt, and deliberately kill animals for our own entertainment. So our question to you today is simple: when did we lose our respect for nature? When did we become so brainwashed to look at something like this and even begin to think it’s ok? Cute even? How can someone get paid to hurt a living being? Why can’t we see that animals deserve life just like human beings? After all, animals play an important role in this world, just like humans do. It’s time for us to stop harming our planet and our precious wildlife. It’s time we reclaim our inner nature, our love of health and wellness and our respect for all living beings! This world can be beautiful, spectacular even. Every inch is covered with millions of offerings in various forms. Whether it may be microscopic, macroscopic, subterranean, underwater, hidden in valleys, or in trees....we are one. We are all nature. Going #plasticfree and helping our planet’s wildlife thrive are two trends that are critical to ensure our own future as a species. Please share this important post with your followers to help us spread awareness to everyone so we can end this cruel practice before any more precious living beings are killed for such mindless entertainment. #endanimalcruelty #savetheturtles #karmagawa #savethereef

    ⚠WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES⚠ We humans have a tendency to think that we are the only animal who grieves the loss of a son or daughter, but this heartbreaking video, showing a sea lion who lost her baby, should be a waking call to us all. Sadly, tourists eager to get a picture with a birthing sea lion are causing many of the mothers to miscarry, or abandon their pups in fear, leaving them to die. The problem is that approaching them causes anxiety and stress, resulting in a mother reducing milk production or, worst, abandoning her pups altogether. This is NOT okay! Please share this video to make everyone aware that animals feel the same emotions as us and the loss of a newborn baby is truly catastrophic. Stay tuned for followup posts in which we will expose irresponsible tourists who endanger themselves, the sea lions and the newborn babies all in the name of getting a precious selfie…THIS MUST STOP NOW! And there’s no better platform than Instagram to spread this important information so please share this with your followers and tag people in the comments who need to see it too…let’s work together to make this a better world for humans and animals alike!

    This video should shock you and make you realize how badly we are polluting our oceans! We MUST all recognize the problem and change our polluting ways before its too late or else it’s only a matter of time before there are some horrific consequences to face due to our current irresponsible behavior. You can help us by sharing this video with your followers and tagging people who need to see it...let’s use our social media platform for good: Plastic bags and toilet seats. Hundreds of discarded fishing nets. All of this was stuck to the seabed of Greece’s Andros island.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠Volunteers collected over 660 pounds of plastic waste. But some say the microplastics leave an invisible imprint on the environment and even ourselves. They can be consumed by fish that then become a part of our diet.⁣⁠ Great video @ajplus good find @leonardodicaprio #saveouroceans #endplasticpollution #karmagawa #savethereef

    You might be tempted to laugh at this video of a walrus doing sit-ups for a crowd of tourists until you consider the harsh training required to make this keystone species in Arctic marine ecosystems do the sit-ups as trainers withhold their food until the trick is performed for the paying public. What’s even sadder is that the Pacific walrus population is estimated to have dropped 60% in the last few decades and research shows they are very sociable, interacting with each other more than any other type of animal! So, now look at this video in a different light as this borderline endangered species is forced to perform simply in order to eat, all alone and cutoff from other walruses, which is completely the opposite of how this beautiful creature would normally live out in the wild. Please share this video and help us spread awareness to educate more tourists so they don’t support shows like this anymore! #savethewalrus #emptythetanks #karmagawa #savethereef

    How tragic is this? These 2 seal pups were issued a death sentence by the fishing industry as sadly over one million marine mammals and sea birds die EACH YEAR due to #plasticpollution and getting trapped like this is a prime example! These poor seals got entangled together and in struggling against each other pulled the knots tighter and tighter so there was no escape. This situation makes it impossible for them to swim or feed, and they would probably have been dead within a week if not for @namib_naude and his amazing rescue skills! The situation with discarded fishing lines is becoming an epidemic RIGHT NOWand needs to be stopped so please help us spread awareness about this urgent issue by sharing this video with your followers, leaving comments with your thoughts below and tagging people and companies that need to see it and all let’s work together to figure out ways to save our wildlife and environment too! #savetheseals #animalrescue #karmagawa #savethereef

    The fight to end #plasticpollution is a worldwide battle and each one of us is responsible to try using less plastic to combat this urgent problem RIGHT NOW as it’s killing our wildlife and our environment and sadly the problems are only getting worse every day! Thank you to several SaveTheReef community members for sending us this brand new video showing how bad this problem has become in Mumbai, India and even though the narration for this video isn’t perfect English, we hope you see this video for what it is — a warning sign of what’s to come in countless more cities all over the world before it’s too late to do anything about it in a few years. So, please help us spread awareness by sharing this video with your followers and tagging people who need to see it because waves should not be spewing trash back onto land like this, WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO SAVE OUR PLANET!

    We proudly wore our SaveTheReef charity t-shirts (which you can buy using the link in our bio and where ALL the profits are donated to charities working to help coral reefs/marine life) during our most recent beach cleanup in Miami, Florida with the @karmagawa and @fillabag team and we LOVE that our fast-growing community is doing more and more beach cleanups all over the world so please keep doing them, keep posting about them to help us spread awareness about this critical issue and keep tagging us so we can repost you and get the word out even more! In the past 48 hours alone, there have been SaveTheReef beach cleanups in Japan, India, Chile, Hawaii, California and Florida and we appreciate every last one of them, big or small, because sadly it’s our precious wildlife and environment that suffers the most...as we often post, over one million sea birds and marine mammals die each year due to #plasticpollution so we must cleanup our beaches and local areas to save as many animals as possible from agonizingly painful deaths. Please share this post and encourage your followers to do cleanups too...together we can make this planet great again! #beachcleanup #fillabag #karmagawa #savethereef

    This new invention gives us hope so please read the entire caption, share this post with your followers and leave a comment below with thoughts too! The City of Kwinana in Western Australia has hailed the trial of two new drainage nets a success as it continues its journey towards less waste and increased sustainability. The nets were installed at two locations earlier this year in an effort to reduce rubbish from drainage systems within the City, particularly in areas where road drainage is discharged into public open spaces and reserves. During the trial, 370kg (roughly 815 pounds) of debris consisting of food wrappers, plastic bottles, sand and tree leaves was cleaned out of the nets. Mayor Carol Adams says, “The nets capture gross pollutants carried by stormwater from the local road network before those pollutants are discharged and contaminate the natural environment at the downstream end of the outlet area. This ensures that the habitat of the local wildlife is protected and minimizes the risk of wildlife being caught in the nets.” Now three more locations have been identified as suitable drainage points for further nets to be installed following the trial’s success! Share this post and tag people who need to see it too as we must try all sorts of new ideas/inventions to help alleviate our #plasticpollution problem RIGHT NOW! #newinvention #endplasticpollution #karmagawa #savethereef

    How great is this? These before and after photos made our day because it shows even the most polluted areas can be cleaned up when enough people work together and that allows wildlife to truly flourish! Never forget that while we humans are the problem that created so much waste in the first place, we can do better as we are also the solution and nature is so incredibly resilient it just needs to be given a chance! Please keep cleaning up the area in which you live and also keep doing beach cleanups and tagging us so we can repost you...let’s each do our part to make our planet better! #beachcleanup #karmagawa #natureisamazing #savethereef
