Giant Petrels sizing each other up for the right to eat. To settle the pecking order petrels swim towards each other wings outspread. The largest wingspan wins, and if it’s too close to tell, it’s settled like this ☝🏼😮 BAM 💥 epic day out with @albatrossencounterkaikoura and a special catch up with @fionawardlephotography ! x o

Let me tell you a secret 👉🏼Picking up plastic won’t save the planet... BUT if you bend down every time you notice it there in front of you a) you’ll get toned thighs from 1000’s of squats and b) in a short amount of time you’ll get so PISSED OFF you do something about it 😁 Your car, your hand bag and your pockets will turn into a tip for the sake of the planet and it won’t be long until your jeans smell like ciggie butts, your car stinks, you’re drowning in rubbish and you think, this cannot go on... Its a fabulous way to stoke the fire! This is how the Rye @seasidescavenge came to be ☺️ now we’re hauling 770kg of rubbish at our event and introducing hundreds of people to different ways of reducing our litter footprint. Plus we take our @tangaroablue clean up data back to the council to work out mitigation strategies to reduce litter in our community. Picking up rubbish won’t save the planet, but it will make you so pissed about the situation you’ll give up single-use plastics and maybe even take that passion a little further and start your own community initiatives. Like my friend @sharejosie says “if you see it, pick it up” and your passion will soon become medicine to your problems 💪🏻🌏#leaveonlyfootprints 📷 🧜🏻♀️👉🏼@jemma.heritage
The Rye @seasidescavenge met with officers from the Mornington Peninsula Shire today. Thanks to @tangaroablue we could use our clean up data to show that there has been no reduction in litter along Rye foreshore between this time last year and now, even after their best efforts to empty bins and add extra Clean Team staff during the busy period. The shire cannot physically do anymore. There are 500 bins along the foreshore and not enough man power to keep removing the mountains of rubbish. We can’t keep adding bins and picking up litter. Help us reach out to community and businesses over this year with Plastic Free Pledges. Get in touch through firstname.lastname@example.org and lets work with council to reduce these mammoth plastic tides on our beaches. Thanks to @seasidescavenge @sharejosie @dolphinresearch and Mechelle Cheers for your valuable input at the meeting. To @seashepherdmarinedebristeam for putting our data together at light speed! And to council officers Amy, Krystal and Sue for your support to secure the longevity of the Seaside Scavenge community 🥂 to a zero waste vision !
770kg of rubbish, 10,000 cigarette butts !! The Rye @seasidescavenge has pulled another massive haul, 270 people, in just 3 hours picked this up yesterday. The large majority of litter 👉🏼 single use plastics and 🚬 butts 👎🏼 this is 100kg more litter than last year. We will continue to hold this event during the peak summer period to raise awareness of littering and reducing single-use plastics. This mammoth amount of rubbish calls for concern from community, council and government. Summer holidays cannot be an excuse, we must change the way we use plastics. Join the Scavenge Community and help us grow the event! From the Scavenge and our Oceans 🙏🏻 THANK YOU @seashepherdmarinedebristeam @dive2u @polperrodolphinswims @dolphinresearch @boomerangbags @captainsofrye @marinemammalfoundation @happyglamper @jettyroadbrewery @tagforlife_sharks @peninsulapaellas @theonlybutt @vinsbins @3941mac @3941ryebeachpatrol @beachpatrolaust @lucklouiseofficial, @themidwayers @mattkatsismusic @bandwagonmusic @shipwreckd_studiogallery @peninsulahotsprings @maxsrestaurant Lionel Lauch - Living Culture @sharejosie @ecocentrestkilda , All our AMAZING volunteers, our 270 participants, The Mornington Peninsula Shire You Made This An Incredible Day For All Involved 🙏🏻💙✌🏻🚬🗑🧜🏻♀️ Great seagull eye view of the Scavenge from @tejhiney !

Our actions, not our beliefs, make us the humans we want to be. In this New Year let your resolutions speak and take action towards reducing single-use plastic consumption. Over 95% of all beach clean up litter is non-degradable Plastic. Our parents and grandparents didn’t need it, so why do we? 🖕🏼 the Age of Instant Gratification & Convenience, lets put the health of our planet first. May peace live in your heart and your actions show you how powerful you truly are ✌🏻💙🌏🌟 .

A beautiful Tahitian Ray in the shallows of Bora Bora, French Polynesia. Here they hand feed the rays and the guides know them by name. It’s tricky when your moral compass spins over these types of interactions. In this case I found the benefits to raising social awareness amongst our guests as rays being beautiful peaceful creatures outweighed the possible negative effects of feeding. I watched as many who feared them turned their reservations into curiosities and then transformed them into adoration ✌🏻#saveoursharks#shark#ray#tahiti

S e a h o r s e ARTIVISM by Mermaid @sharejosie with help from Amanda Baird 💕🦄 | An estimated 24 billion cigarettes are sold in Australia each year. It is estimate 7 billion of these cigarettes are littered. In urban areas almost 50% of all litter is tobacco related products including burrs, cellophane wrapping, foil inserts and packaging. CHALK IT UP | SHARE the word | BUILD a sculpture and bring it to the Seaside Scavenge Festival Sunday 7th January 👈🏻 Epic PIRZES to be won ! .
