The 98 cetaceans currently held at the “Whale Prison” in Srednyaja Bay, Russia are in extreme danger. Due to the frigid temperatures in Primorsky Krai, the water in the bay is beginning to freeze over. Sheets of snow-covered ice have surrounded the beluga pens and the converted aviaries the 11 orcas are currently housed in. Russian biologists, veterinarians, and activists accompanied by Federal Security Service (FBS) officers and the head of the Criminal Investigation Department of Nakhodka have started a three day audit of the cetaceans. Over the following days, experts will assess the 87 belugas and 11 orcas to determine the state of their health, their ages, and if they were captured legally. The animals are believed to be in poor condition and can no longer maintain a healthy blubber supply making them susceptible to hypothermia. Three beluga calves have already perished at the “Whale Prison" and more will soon follow if the surviving animals aren’t relocated immediately. . A group of 20 Russian pro-captivity supporters appeared outside of the “Whale Prison” to support the facility’s owners. It has since been revealed that the protestors were paid 3,500 rubbles to hold the signs and march. According to the protestors, Americans are trying to shutdown Russia’s dolphinariums and aquariums, claiming “American scientists are exterminating the killer whales.” However, they’re most likely not pro-captivity supporters. There are a significant number of Russian nationalists in the region with strong anti-American sentiments, including the local media. The owners of the “Whale Prison” are clearly trying to take advantage of these sentiments to rally some support. There will be no quick resolution to this ordeal as the legal process is not over. Rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing these animals, if possible, will be a very long process. The results of the audit will be posted once avaliable! .

Kayaking adventures in Antarctica! So much fun and incredibly beautiful. Being right on the water offers such a different perspective. By the ice, through the ice, on the ice. And a new outfit combination - multiple layers, then the dry suit, the kayaking skirt, the life jacket. Getting dressed takes a while! #kayak #antarctica #oneocean #getoutside #exploremore #cruise #love #happy #explore #adventure #wow #ice

Have you ever wanted to be a scuba diving instructor? Or a marine biologist? . . Well If you have, you will love my newest video where me and my dear friend @maria.seandme comparing our two jobs. Click the link in bio. . . I have worked as a diving instructor for six years now and Maria is completing her PhD at the University of Austria. Our jobs are so different, yet we work hard to learn about our ocean, teach others and protect the sea. . . Some of the frequently asked questions we get include : How does it cost to become qualified? What is the job like? . . . #discoverocean  #zerowasteliving  #underwater #conservation #ecofriendly #uwpics #freediver #nowaste #uwphoto #scubadiving #marinelife #lovediving #underwaterpics #zerowaste #uwphotography #oneocean #zerowastehome #freedive #oceanphotography #sharkbite #sharkattack #seashepherd #queensland #loveyouqueensland #shark #stradbrokeisland #saveoursharks #marinebiologist #marine #biology

@oneoceandiving - Beautiful artwork by the talented @styngvi. If you haven’t checked out his page, which includes his shark art series, you’re missing out! Mahalo for speaking up for sharks and bringing awareness to the importance of conserving them! 🦈🌊 ・・・ Tiger shark is a species of requiem shark and the fourth biggest shark found in the ocean. It is an apex predator capable of attaining a length over 5 meters and is easily recognized by their dark, vertical stripes in juvenile animals. ▪️ Tiger sharks are common in tropical and sub-tropical waters throughout the world. They prey on sea turtles and keep them moving over the sea grass to prevent them from grazing on only one spot which benefits the eco system in the ocean. ▪️ Tiger sharks are heavily targeted by humans for their fins, skin, and flesh. They have extremely low repopulation rates and are therefore very vulnerable to overfishing. They are listed as near threatened throughout their range. ▪️ Sharks are like the immune system of the ocean. They prey on the weak and sick animals and keep our oceans healthy. Conservation of sharks is also the preservation of human life as we know it. The aim of this series is to break the image of sharks being mindless killing machines. ▪️ In the end we will only conserve what we love and we only love what we understand so it's important to educate people and help them to understand sharks. We need to see sharks as animals that are highly evolved, curious and intelligent. We need to acknowledge them as creatures that have been on this planet for 400 million of years but could disappear from the ocean in our lifetime unless we do something about it. ▪️ Please keep an open mind and help me shatter the image of sharks by sharing facts and images of them 🦈 . #savetheocean #helpsavesharks #oneocean #oneoceanconservation #oneoceanresearch #savesharks #veganartist #ocean #tigershark

Me and @oceanramsey watching a shark pass by in awe 🦈 We went out with the boat off the North Shore of Oahu and saw dozens of sandbar and galapagos sharks 🌊 I wanted to swim and dive with them to loose my fear against them. They are often misunderstood and misportayed in the media. Most people think they are aggressive monsters killing everything that comes in their way. As a matter of fact they were circling us in the most peaceful and graceful manner. Slightly curios about us other predators but mostly just minding their own business. 🤷‍♀️ @oceanramsey and @juansharks made it their purpose to protect and save the sharks, educate people about them and stopping crucial techniques like sharkfinning. I admire their work and I’d be happy if you have a look (if you don’t know them already) and see a little more the beauty and importance of the Kings and Queens of the ocean 🤗💪🏽 • • • • #oneoceandiving #nosharkfinning #savetheocean#oneocean#savesharks#oceanconservation#swimmingwithsharks#diveoahu#travelnorthshore#hawaiidiving#sharksofinstagram#underwaterworld#snorkelingadventure#freedivewithsharks

So it turns out that there was actually 3 different female white sharks that were recorded in 3 different days here in Hawaii. @oceanramsey pictured here is diving with Haole Girl. This news has made me so happy knowing that we may have 3 super sized and possibly pregnant white sharks out there helping white shark populations that are red listed as endangered species by the IUNC. Haole Girl in this photo looks just as big as Deep Blue to me. #whiteshark #hawaii #endangeredspecies #cagethefear #apexpredatornotmonster #coexist #oneocean #onechance #gopro #aquatech _imagingsolutions shot on my @aquatech_imagingsolutions of #oceanramsey using her @gopro to film #sharkbehavior for @oneoceanresearch diving with @forrest.in.focus @mermaid_kayleigh @camgrantphotography

Yesterday I went in front of the house environment and energy committee to testify in support of the #hb1205 #reusablebagbill. I spent the day in Olympia working with @seattleaquarium @nwtrek @ptdefiancezoo meeting with senators and representatives, urging them to support this bill. This bill is moving through the legislature right now, and will get rid of ALL plastic bags in the state of Washington. Retailers will be able to charge 10 cents for a paper bag or a thicker, more durable, reusable type plastic bag. Even though we can’t vote, youth can use their voices to enact positive change. 💙 This was a fantastic opportunity for me and I had a great time working with everyone to help save our oceans and planet! I’ve also learned that no matter how many people care about an issue, it is necessary to pass bills and the legislation through the government to create official, widespread change. Start writing to your representatives - they WANT to hear from you! Go to Olympia or your local office and lobby for a bill that you support! 💪🏻☺️ We can use our voices to make some pretty cool change! @oneoceanconservation @oneoceanglobal #sharks #pastickills #ecolife #oceanlove #oneocean #weneedsharks #watergirl #strawssuck #stopsharkfinning #saynotosharkfinsoup #saveoursharks #learntocoexist #apexpredatornotmonster #nosingleuseplastic #banplastic #oneoceanglobal #oneoceanglobalambassador #teamoneocean #sharksweloveyou

Otters are so cute 💙 - They're are hungry animals! Sea otters eat 25% of their body weight in food every day. They like to eat sea urchins, clams, mussels and crabs. They use their sea whiskers to find small creatures to eat, and their paws to dig for clams. Clever creatures, they'll use rocks to crack open the clams. They carry rocks and store food in the loose skin under their armpits - who needs carrier bags! - Via @montereybayaquarium For more 👉 Follow us! 👉 @ima_marinebiologist Thank you so much 👌🏻👌🏻

There are so many interesting places in the world. I have found that the ocean intrigues my curiosity and adventurous spirit the most. This place had a crazy bottom thanks to the currents pulling and pushing the sand against and through the corals. It created this crazy turbulence on the bottom while remaining calm on the surface. This can be dangerous if you get in the mix, and attempt to fight your way through, the power of the ocean can push you into and across the corals and sharp rocks on the sea floor. However, if you relax, the energy calmly rocks you back and forth in a peaceful experience, letting you avoid the danger below. 📷 @karimiliya
