SAVE THE MED 🌊 

The Balearic Islands have taken another step towards becoming a more sustainable destination with the launch of the pioneering certification "Plastic Free Balearics". This new environmental guarantee has been developed by @savethemed in collaboration with local conservation organisations and will certify businesses within the region's hospitality industry that successfully reduce single-use plastics (SUPs). #OceanFamilyFoundation #SaveTheMed

OCEANS WITHOUT BORDERS 🐢 

Sea turtles are important ambassadors for marine conservation. All five species of sea turtles that occur in the waters of East Africa and the Western Indian Ocean are considered threatened by the IUCN, and are a major focus of @oceanswithoutborders conservation efforts. Mnemba and Vamizi Islands host regionally important breeding sites for green and hawksbill turtles. This year, Mnemba celebrates 20 years of continuous nest monitoring, with Vamizi reaching that same landmark in 2022. These unbroken turtle nest monitoring programmes offer invaluable learnings on these iconic and endangered species. #OceanFamilyFoundation #oceanswithoutborders

WORLDRISE 🐟 

@worldrise_onlus are on a mission to promote traditional fishing and encourage consumers to reduce the consumption of species that are overfished. 🎣 

SEAstainable Seafood is an initiative which is aiming to help protect species which are overexploited by commercial fishing in the Mediterranean Sea. The project guides sustainable fish consumption, promotes sustainable fishing methods, and educates consumers and chefs to better understand which species should be avoided and which can be consumed. #OceanFamilyFoundation #WorldRise

MANDY BARKER 📸 

@mandybarkerphotography has spent more than 10 years creating images of marine debris to raise awareness about plastic pollution in the world's oceans. Barcode (👆🏼) consists of small pieces of fishing nets. Her work aims to create awareness about the vast amount of plastic pollution in our 🌊.

It is estimated that more than eight million tonnes of plastic enter the world's oceans each year. The debris poses a number of dangers to marine ecosystems - such as entangling or being ingested by sea creatures.

Barker's work has been exhibited around the world, and used to illustrate academic and scientific research papers on plastic research. Her current exhibition is part of the Belfast Photo Festival at Donegall Quay, Belfast, until 30 July 2021. #oceanfamilyfoundation

OCEANS WITHOUT BORDERS 🌊 

Thanks to Vamizi Island's Community Fishers' Council, the Vamizi Community Sanctuary is soon to be the first community-led sanctuary to be gazetted at a national level as a Marine Protected Area (MPA). Support for this inspirational council has come from local fisheries authorities, researchers from Universidad Lurio, Vamizi Island private concession holders, and @oceanswithoutborders. It is exciting, multi-stakeholder collaborations like thee that are the future of marine conservations.

SEA TURTLE DAY 🐢 

Today we celebrate #worldseaturtleday. Of the 7 sea turtle species, 6 are listed by the IUCN Red List as either vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered. They are:

- leatherbacks (vulnerable)
- loggerheads (vulnerable)
- hawksbill (critically endangered)
- green sea turtles (endangered)
- Kemp’s Ridley (critically endangered)
- Olive Ridley (vulnerable)
- flatback sea turtles (data deficient)

Together let’s work towards protecting these magical creatures. Top tops:

- At night, keep bright lights off the beach to encourage sea turtles to next and ensure hatchlings can find their way to the sea.
- Keep beaches trash free to avoid turtles mistaking it for food or getting caught in plastic.
- Support groups which lobby to reduce the accidental by-catch of turtles and have on-board observers on fishing vessels.
