Female Tomato Anemonefish (Amphiprion frenatus)
I'm so fortunate to be living on the doorstep of one healthiest reefs I've ever dived on.
But now I see just how damaged the rest of our reefs around the world truly are.
We need to take action to save this stunning environment and it can start with small changes
1️⃣ Reduce your fish consumption ➡️ reduces the demand ➡️ reduces the volume of ghost fishing nets and lines suffocating our reefs and killing wildlife
2️⃣ reduce single use plastic such as bags, takeaway cups and straws. Toxins from plastic are making their way into coral tissues, which slowly makes it's way up the food chain to our plates. Plastic has also recently been shown to carry pathogens and cause disease even in the remotest of reefs
3️⃣ Switch to natural products as much as possible. Skip out on micro beads in cosmetic brands and ditch harsh chemicals in cleaning products for natural alternates. Everything that goes down our drains end up in the ocean, think about that for a moment
4️⃣ Try to purchase more natural fibre clothing or switch to hand washes for synthetic materials. When synthetics are washed in a machine the fabrics fibres (plastic) are easily washed out and end up in our ocean as micro plastics
Try your best and see what changes you can achieve ❤️
Let's save our oceans
