Keeping ancestral traditions are beneficial, yet some are no longer adequate in a time when the importance of stopping #biodiversity loss is widely recognised, with increasing numbers of species under threat. Practices like these must end. Join the call & sign @onlyone petition.
Inspired by #nature: committed to action! I'm delighted to introduce the new #SpindriftforSchools educational kit, which focuses specifically on the @UN #SustainableDevelopmentGoals. #30x30 #SDG4 @IocUnesco @reseau_canope @education_gouv DOWNLOAD➡️ https://spindriftforschools.com/en/30x30
I believe it's incredibly important to share the beauty of nature with as wide a public as possible. Thank you @OnlyOne & @Sea_legacy for organising the #Antarctica Exhibit. My husband and I were delighted to support through @sailsofchange. #CallOnCCAMLR ➡️https://www.instagram.com/p/CUHv_IdoB1c/
Happy #WorldMantaDay! One of the strongest human-animal bonds I ever felt was in #CostaRica, when this beautiful manta swam around me. I could sense both its curiosity and intelligence, and I'll always cherish this moment. Protecting our #ocean is a shared reasonability. #30x30
Many sports connect us to the #ocean; my favourites are sailing and #diving. Nice to see @PADI tackling marine conservation issues such as #climatechange, #MPAs and coral reefs during their AWARE week. Engaging people is a great way to drive change. #30x30
