BEACH BIN & BAG

VRIPAK

Annually, there are over seven billion tons of debris deposited on beaches around the world. The pollution of beaches negatively impacts the natural balance of costal ecosystems and the health of our oceans.

Plastic contributes to the bulk of the tons of discarded rubbish and washed-up debris. Reducing this pollution through beach clean-ups significantly helps allow our important coastal ecosystems to exist and thrive.

Inspired and actively engaged, Ocean Family Foundation has partnered with North Sails, the global leader in sailmaking, and Vripack, the innovative yacht design studio, to develop waste bins and bags from reclaimed sails specifically for beach cleanups.

Ocean Family Foundation, North Sails and Vripack actively promote beach cleanups among yacht owners and crew and with the Beach Bin And Bag initiative we heighten awareness of the amount of plastic waste on our shores that we can easily pick up and remove before it enters the ocean and our marine systems.

With this simple approach take the pledge here https://vripack.com/new-wave/beach-bin-and-bag to receive the bags and be part of the solution!

OCTOPUS 🐙 

Captured by the talented @mitty - As her eyes scanned the colorful reef of St. Lucia she spotted the shape and texture of the coral below and couldn't shake the feeling that somehow it was also studying her back.

Just as she was about to dismiss the strange thought and move on, there was the tiniest flicker of movement and with that, the illusion was shattered. @mitty was looking into the eyes of an octopus!

These clever little shapeshifters are almost impossible to detect when they're in hiding or, in this case, waiting for unsuspecting prey to drift past.

OCEANS WITHOUT BORDERS 🗺️ 

Meet Gilda Da Madelena Luis; a valued member of the @oceanswithoutborders Benguerra Island Community & Conservation marine rangers, Mozambique.

Gilda's motivation to apply for this position was inspired by another woman who had made a similar career choice. She believes that “the more young women we can engage with on the importance of conservation, and the options of this as a career, the better.” She has taken to her diverse role and responsibilities like the proverbial duck to water. As she grows from strength to strength, she looks forward to empowering other young women with a voice in conservation.

PLASTIC FREE 🌍 

In anticipation of Earth Overshoot Day 2023 taking place tomorrow, @createplasticfree will be broadcasting a powerful message of hope and possibility, calling on the creative industry to design differently. 

Earth Overshoot Day falls on 2nd of August and marks the day in the year where we have used up all the natural resources that the earth can replenish in a year. In other words, from this day forward, we're borrowing natural resources that is not ours.

The campaign is a reminder that the solutions are already here.

SAVE THE MED 🌊 

@savethemedfoundation are very excited about being back at sea!

The #Changemakers expedition is in full swing.
To ensure the team are safe at all times,
@medicalsupportoffshore have generously provided them with First Aid Kits, Oxybox and free access to satellite support. 

While they hope to never need to use any of it, it's wonderful to know that MSOS have got their back and we can't thank them enough!

YACHTS FOR SCIENCE 

@yachtsforscience are looking for vessels that can facilitate whale research in Bhaia De Bandoras, 🇲🇽.

4-6 researchers will be heading to the area between December 23 - February 24. Dr. Joshua Stewart is a quantitative ecologist whose interests span animal movement, trophic ecology, and population dynamics with an emphasis on threatened species and ecosystems.

The research team will be studying 🐋 , killer 🐋 , and elusive beaked whales using drones, satellite tags, and acoustic buoys. Humpbacks overwinter in the Mexican breeding areas including Bahia de Banderas, and sightings of humpback breeding groups and mothers with newborn calves are extremely common in the winter months.

Late January is an ideal season to study killer whales, which come into the bay to feed on newborn humpback calves and manta rays that are present in high numbers during the winter.

Interested yachts please 📧 rosie@yachtsforscience.com

The team @uksasailing know just how important it is to protect your eyes from UV rays, especially out at sea.

Protection not only looks the part, it’s essential to maintain healthy eye site for the future. Always ensure your 🕶️ have a high rating, so look for 😎 labelled UV 400, which provides nearly 💯 protection from harmful ultraviolet rays.
