Plastic pollution is a huge problem these days, as it has seriously damaging effects on our environment, health, and food. According to National Geographic: “Each year, an estimated 18 billion pounds of plastic waste enters the world’s ocean from coastal regions. That’s about equivalent to fiv...

Raise your voice! Plastic pollution is out of control in Indonesia and although this sperm whale’s cause of death can’t be identified, the cups and other man made items certainly contributed to it.

Large ships require a professional navigator to come onboard for entering and exiting most ports. These highly trained sailors, known as pilots, know the local currents, tides, and underwater features better than anyone, helping these vessels to avoid running aground. Pilots board moving ships, risking their lives. We love them!

This pilot is about to board a moving ship!! 😉🚢
