Watch this extraordinary event – an Eden’s whale, trap feeding in the Gulf of Thailand! 🐳

The whale is basically treading water. They learned to do this because pollution has made the area hypoxic, so all the oxygen is at the surface and fish can only survive up there! 🐟🐠🐡

All the whale has to do to eat is tread water and keep its open mouth just below the surface so fish are pulled in with the flow of water. Some fish even look like they’re jumping right in… 🌊

Indonesia bans fishing Manta Rays after finding they’re worth 1Million each for tourism.

Manta rays are now fully protected in Indonesian waters, in the largest sanctuary for manta rays in the world. The global populations of mantas have been decimated over the last decade and they are now “Vulnerable to Extinction” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. A study led by The Manta Trust and Shark Savers revealed that one manta ray is worth an estimated US $1M in tourism revenue during its lifetime—much more than the of $40-$500 it would be worth if caught and killed. Both species of manta ray (the oceanic manta ray Manta birostris and the reef manta M. alfredi), which have docile natures, up to 25-foot wingspans, and intelligence and grace, are a top tourism draw in Indonesia.

Mantas take 10 years to mature and produce only one pup every 2-5 years. They are caught for their gill rakers and sold in Guangzhou region in China as a cure-all, despite having no known curative properties.

Less than a year ago, full protection was declared for four species of sharks and rays, including whale sharks and sawfish in Indonesia. The Indonesian government is currently considering similar protections for other threatened shark species such as hammerheads and oceanic whitetip sharks.

One of the most magical places on earth, French Polynesia is as close to perfection as one could possibly hope to reach.

Heading onwards to sacred Raiatea, vanilla-scented Taha’a and the iconic and legendary island that is Bora Bora, this nature-laden charter destination offers a window into some of the most spectacular and beautiful corners of the natural world.

Delve into traditional Polynesian lifestyles, as well as an off the beaten track discovery of isles that stretch as far as the eye can see: https://loom.ly/jMfn06s

The great news from Costa Rica this morning fills me with HOPE! Expanding the Cocos Island National Park is a big step forward for Costa Rica and for safeguarding 30% of the ocean by 2030.

Cocos Island holds a special place in my heart. It is one of my favorite dive sites, and home to important ocean wildlife like sharks, whales, and sea turtles. Three cheers are in order for Costa Rica and President Carlos Alvarado Quesada and Minister Andrea Meza!
