Category Archives: Save our ocean

If you ask your self

Who can change the world?

Rainbow warriors of Greenpeace?

Eco pirates of sea Shepard?

They can affect but still not strong enough to change.

But you want to know something?

We could change our future, but just if we do it together. Just by a simple action as;

Use less plastic; Plastics that end up as ocean debris contribute to habitat destruction and entangle and killed tens of thousands of marine animals each year. 9.1 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year. It´s estimated that in 2025 it will rise up to 150 million metric tons.

One thing that´s even more scary?
Plastic dissolves in the water after a while, and it enter the ecosystem. The plastic then wander from the smallest creatures to the biggest, which are humans.

To limit your impact, carry a reusable water bottle, store food in non disposable containers, bring your own cloth tote or other reusable bag when shopping, and recycle whenever possible. And never forget everything that are out there will eventually end up in the ocean so leave nothing.

Imaging if every human would spend 5 minutes per day to clean and recycle. Approximately 7.4 billion people would be available. Multiple that by the five minutes and we would have 37 billion minutes everyday of erasing all the trash on the whole earth. We would erase the problem of plastic and all be super cleaning heroes.

We have a responsibility to save our ocean.

Paradise on earth

The ocean covers 72% of our planet.
This ocean has developed from the very first life 3.5 billion years ago until today. Through evolution life has been washed away and some of it been developed to perfection.
Today we have discovered less then 5% of the world’s ocean. This 5% has shown us 230 000 species, it’s still estimated that we have 2 million different creatures to find.
The tiny shrimp and the 180 tonne blue whale are both here because they are supposed to be out there in the ocean. The evolution still need them to balance our planet.

In the end they are all connected to each other. We need every piece of the puzzle.
Somehow on the journey from monkeys to humans we forgot where we came from. We lost our roots to nature.

We started to play god.

But out there is light, there are good people that want to change the future.
And I believe in us. Not all of us, but most of us. We have the choice to change the future.
The rule when it’s comes to the ocean is simple; we don’t mess with it.
Let’s change our future. For the world, for everything that’s good in it.

I believe in us, Do you?

Happy new year ocean.

I can’t belive it’s one year since I stand on the beach of Ao nang, krabi counted in the last second of 2014. Another year to an end. But such a year!

I’ve been travelling trough many contruies this year. One of them were Indonesia which was stunning.

In Komodo island I experienced diving that were beyond my dreams.

I been seeing sharks, manta rays, turtles, reefs, rays, nudibranch before. But now everything was seen on the same dive. I couldn’t decide what to take picture on at some points of the dive. And the reefs was huge untouched and healthy.

The amount and diversity of life were just ridiculous. Some few moments I couldn’t belive my eyes.

This is the place to add on your bucketlist for 2015.

Just a few months ago I decided to share my knowledge about the ocean as instructor.

And now I working with diving and have the chanse to share the tales of the ocean.

This year I will put my strength to the ocean. And finally one day it will came back to it’s glory.

I hope, I dream about it.

Happy new year ocean!
