a photo i took last year in Tioman x please don’t delete this comment!
when i went to Tioman, we visited this project ‘Tioman Turtles’. they are trying to help save the species of turtles that visit this island from becoming extinct. (this is a small ‘tank’ where a turtle called Jo lives in. She a blind turtle that was rescued c: the poor thing swims around and bumps into the wall :c) anyways, on Tioman there are only 3 species of turtles left that lay their eggs on the beach. because of development (building resorts, tourist attractions etc) the number of turtles that lay their eggs in Tioman are becoming less and less. one of the main threats for baby turtles are humans. we watched a video of a turtle trying to get back to the ocean after laying her eggs, there were these tourists blocking her way. the tourists were trying to take photos with the turtle. this turtle wont come back to lay her eggs there anymore because of the tourists.
PLEASE REBLOG THIS POST TO HELP SPREAD AWARENESS AND SAVE THE TURTLES!

One quality that was crazy about Andy was that he never talked bad about anyone’s surfing. No one. Not even to me, personally. There’s not one person on that planet who could say otherwise. He thought everyone was an amazing surfer, from Kelly all the way down to that guy that’s just learning how to surf. He never had a negative thing to say about someone’s surfing, which is pretty crazy. Most athletes talk shit about other athletes. - Lyndie Irons

a selection of photographs from david hall’s beneath cold seas, taken in the waters off british columbia. through state of the art photographic equipment and innovative techniques, david successfully challenges the widespread belief that cold water marine life is dull and uninteresting.
with temperatures that typically stay about ten degrees above freezing all year long, strong tidal currents, and the limited visibility that comes with cold water - green hues and increased particulate matter - david uses a strobe to captures warmer colours and gets withing ten feet (versus one hundred feet in tropical waters) of his subject.
photos, in order, of a moon jellyfish, a cross jellyfish, a lion’s mane jellyfish, an opalescent nudibranch with colonial tunicates,a northern kelp crab, a lion’s mane jellyfish, and sockeye salmon
