- Introducing BOTTLE CASE - The world’s ONLY iPhone case made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. ♻️ Our oceans are drowning in plastic. We’re not interested in creating NEW PLASTIC to make phone cases.
Virtually all cases made today require production of virgin materials, while there’s an overwhelming abundance of plastic material already in the ecosystem. We want to keep existing plastic in the economy and out of our oceans and landfills.
Protect your phone. Protect your oceans. 🌊💙 #nonewplastic
- Little hairy frogfish
Dauin Philippines may 2019
This small fish grows up to 22 cm long. Like other members of its family, it has a rounded, extensible body, and its soft skin is covered with irregularly-arranged dermal spinules resembling hairs. Its large mouth is forwardly extensible, allowing it to swallow prey as large as itself. The coloring of its body is extremely variable because individual fish tend to match their living environments. Frogfishes have the capacity to change coloration and pigment pattern, taking only a few weeks to adapt. The dominant coloration varies from yellow to brownish-orange, passing through a range of shades, but it can also be green, gray, brown, almost white, or even completely black without any pattern.

- The doings of creatures under the Arctic sea ice are many, but they are rarely observed by humans; it’s pretty hard to get under the ice to look.
Marine biologist Andy Juhl and his colleagues got around this problem a couple of years ago by driving snowmobiles several miles from Point Barrow, Alaska, out onto the adjoining frozen Chukchi Sea, drilling holes in the four-foot-plus thick ice, and poking in a video camera attached to an small underwater vehicle.
Among the things that they observed: sizable Chrysaora melanaster jellyfish floating by, trailing their foot-long-plus tentacles along the shallow bottom. Their presence came as a surprise: adult jellyfish, or medusae, are generally thought to live only a few months. Scientists had assumed that the species survived winter only in a life stage called polyps–formless masses that cling to rocks and release little baby medusae in the spring.
Juhl and colleagues say the videos indicate that the creatures in fact last through winter. They could even be several years old––the Methuselahs of medusae.

- The past couple weeks have been nothing but amazing, I got married, completed some tech diving training and been enjoying my honeymoon.
To top things off and make even more exciting, me and this beautiful woman just finalised our agreed terms for a new opportunity in Indonesia. So soon it seems that we will call this special country home.
I’m so lucky to have such an amazing partner in my life who inspires me to be the best version of myself.
Been surround by her brings me nothing but joy and happiness and I am so greatful for this.
Life is short and you have to pursue what you want...but let me tell you, it makes it so much easier when you have someone like I do by your side helping and guiding along the way.
I love this beautiful human so much and can’t wait to start our next Indonesian adventure together.

They have a complex form of communication with different dialects (slightly different language) from one pod to another.
- 🥬 When you discover that milk isn’t the only food option! Watch as this precious baby Manatee shares its first solid meal with mom. Did you know that Manatees were endangered in 2017 but are now thriving once again? This success can be credited to the plethora of organizations and scientists that worked in unity to repopulate our waters with these cuddly mammals. To the surprise of many, zoos and aquariums played an integral roll in funding these efforts as well as publicizing them. Though the subjects in the video are still in captivity, there is now a natural population reaching numbers we havent seen in many years! Tag someone that needs to see this! .
