I'm super stoked that over the weekend, I hit 10K followers here on Instagram! I'm so grateful to my friends and supporters on here, especially at a time where I'm recovering from an injury and can't provide any adventure content right now. Thank you again and stay tuned for a giveaway to celebrate 10K!
'...sharks taste like anything...' #Repost @ochoachristina ( @get_repost ) ・・・ Sometimes you can't breathe under the weight of the world. You see things that make you feel driven but powerless at the same time. Overwhelmed by the greed of the human race. That's what I love about documentaries, they rob you of the opportunity to remain ignorant, they deprive you of comfort in the world, they breed activists. And we need activists. If you don't know where to begin... join me in dragging your friends to see #bluethefilm in cinemas this month. Awareness is the first step... the second is changing the way you view the world, and the way you fight for it. #bluethefilm via @discoversharks @sharkhirlmadison #OceanAdvocacy #Repost cc @oceana_bze @oceana @earthsoceans @mission_blue #NoBlueNoGreen #SaveTheSharks 🦈 #shark #animalabuse #savesharks #savemarinelife

New episode of The Speak Up For Blue Podcast where I ask whether celebrities would be good Ocean Advocates? Do you take any stock in the charitable actions your favourite celebrities do? #linkinbio
Happy #WorldOceansDay from the bottom of the ocean! Divers make some of the best ocean advocates and I'm proud of the work we've accomplished so far and I encourage EVERYONE to learn more about how you can help protect such an integral part of our planet.
BTS shot by @ran_mor_uwphoto of me photographing the wonderful @underwaterlinnea inside the Sapona Wreck off Bimini, Bahamas. We were creating some images highlighting the issue of plastic pollution in the sea. Working with @aquaspirit_divetrips to make some campaign images for COARE (the Centre for Oceanic Awareness Research and Education. ) #moreoceanlessplastic #oceangaurdian #freedive #Take3ForTheSea
In this episode of the Speak Up For Blue podcast, I cover a paper written by Dr. Chris Parsons who discusses the use of advocacy and activism and how they can interact for the sake of the Oceans. I also talk on the new segments called Methods of Mayhem and What's Going On In My Head. #linkinbio

The planet 🌎 is pretty cool people, let's stop destroying it! Here are my 3 fav ways you can help: 1. Stop using plastic! There is utterly NO reason to use bottled water, straws or plastic bags. (I have used 14 of these items in 2 years- just bring a reusable bottle and bag with you ) #saynotoplastic #plasticispoison 2. Eat less meat, eat more veggies! (Good for you and environment - animal agriculture is responsible for the majority of greenhouse gases ) #plantbased #plantpower 3. Be informed - read trusted news sources, do your research and get engaged. You have <100 years on this planet so make it count. Get passionate about something ~~~ Also, go outside, nature is neat #dontbelazy #knowledgeispower #optoutside

#tbt The MOST original San Diego waterman Jack Prodanovich showcasing his first handmade speargun in 1945. Jack continued to build custom guns, as well as make ever-refined models of goggles/masks, underwater camera housings, sleds, paddleboards, rebreathers, and multitudes of other dive gear for decades. His innovations have since paved the way for divers all over the world. Most importantly, the same skills in watermanship that enabled him to build game-changing gear also enlisted in him the integrity to be the first underwater hunter to advocate for conservation of San Diego's marine environment. This guy is a huge reason why we have the ability to shoot (or shoot photos of ) fish today, not only by giving us the gear to do it, but by teaching us how to protect these local waters (and the animals and plants that inhabit them ) for generations. Cheers to Jack! Happy Thursday!
I'm super stoked to announce that the History of Diving in San Diego issue of Mains'L Haul, SDMM's journal publication, has officially gone to press! Articles, artifacts, and access to archives galore (including two big articles written by Yours Truly 😊 ), with stories from the greatest pioneers of underwater exploration both past and present. Please join me in commemorating Jack and Wally for being the inspiration behind the project, the reason we are able to dive today, and the example for how to responsibly enjoy SD's underwater ecosystem for generations! #divehistory #bottomscratchers @robin_prodanovich #pioneersofdiving #knowyourroots #oceanadvocacy #tbt

Here's a trawl sample from the North Atlantic Gyre. Micro plastics are prevalent in all the world oceans, and clean up schemes aren't realistic based on the extent of the plastic 'smog' choking our oceans. These micro plastics attract toxics in the water making them far more dangerous than just plastic alone. They are eaten by marine life that can't tell the difference between food and plastic, and the highly dangerous toxics are then in the food chain, and eventually in our bodies. Once inside the human body it is believed that the only way to eliminate toxics is through child birth, passing them on to the next generation. In Nov #eXXpedition #ascension2015 will trawl each day across the Atlantic for samples, and conduct research that will give us a better understanding of the extent of the damage. #plasticpollution #oceanadvocacy 📷 Via @5gyres our @exxpeditiongirls partner 🌊✌️

Daily #OceanAdvocacy tip: Use less single-use plastic! Tomorrow is #WorldOceansDay ! As hard as it can be in today's society to avoid single-use plastics, it is something that each and every one of us can do to help lessen the amount of plastic pollution in the ocean, which is one of the biggest problems facing ocean ecosystems. Starting tomorrow, I challenge everyone to refuse at least one single-use plastic item each day. Whether it's a plastic/styrofoam straw, cup, cutlery, or bottle, think of the ocean and use a reusable substitute.
Daily #OceanAdvocacy tip: Support ocean science and conservation organizations! Whether you participate in a beach cleanup, volunteer for an event, or just donate money, there are so many amazing ocean organizations and institutions that need support from ocean advocates. Check out some really amazing ones that I tag in this photo!
Daily #OceanAdvocacy Tip: Learn about the ocean! Learning about the ocean's currents, tides, waves, animals, plants, and how they all affect our planet, and its climate, is an extremely important part of being an ocean advocate. I learn something new about the ocean everyday, and the more I learn, the more I love the ocean. And the more I love the ocean, the more I want to help preserve it. Follow the organizations I tag in this photo for some really great ocean info! 🌊🎓📖💦
Daily #OceanAdvocacy Tip: Enjoy the ocean! Whether or not you enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the ocean, surfing the ocean's waves, or just admiring the ocean's beauty from the beach, enjoying the ocean is one of the most important parts of being an ocean advocate. 🌊💦😀 #OceanFun is the best kind of fun!
Happy #SundayFunday ! Snorkeling with my mom we got to hangout with some of my favorite marine life, including an octopus! 🐙🐠🐡🐟🐚 _ And along the way we collected a bag full of marine debris 🚮. Helping to clean up the marine environments you love while you enjoy them is fun and easy!
So thankful to have 1,000 amazing followers! This community makes me feel more and more excited and passionate about ocean advocacy everyday. Thank you for all of your support!
Fun afternoon at Earth Day at the Bay! Got to explore the San Diego Maritime Museum, the Star of India, a deep sea submarine, and check out some of San Diego's best ocean advocacy organizations! 🌊🐋🌎
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and happy New Years to all of our followers! Sorry we've been slacking! This year we'll be back and ready to be ocean advocates! So should you! This year we must take charge and fight the war against our oceans! Stop #PlasticPollution and reduce& recycle as much as we can. This year we pledge to make a difference. What will you do? Comment & Share below 👇👇👇👇👇 #OceanAdvocacy #CleanWaters #ReducePlasticUsage #Recycle #KeepOurBeachesClean
Our oceans are a place of great beauty, incredible wonders, amazing mystery, and even a source of some of our deepest fears or thrills. Our oceans are important to us for many reasons, with food, transportation, recreation, medical sources, and energy being just some of the benefits we gain from them. Yet, oceans are suffering from our activities too; our land practices cause agricultural run-off, sewage, and litter to end up in the oceans daily, and there is now so much trash in the ocean that we've created garbage vortexes where all the trash heads to. Damage to our oceans is damage to our livelihoods, well-being, and nourishment; damage to our oceans lacks respect for our oceans' intrinsic value. As individuals, we can do more to ensure that the oceans are cared for and respected. 💙🌊 #OceanAwareness #OceanAdvocacy #Ocean #SaveTheOcean #GoGreen #DontPollute #GiveBack #SpreadTheWord #GiveBack
"I hope for your help to explore and protect the wild ocean in ways that will restore the health and, in so doing, secure hope for humankind.

My heart breaks so much reading about mass animal killings, the Australian Shark Cull, the Taiji Dolphin Slaughter 💔 Thinking about all the innocent lives being taken.. These intelligent, emotional creatures being ripped away from their families, from there homes 😢 I wish there was more that I could do everyday. I wish people had more compassion but sadly we live in a sick twisted world and all we can do is not support these animal slaughters, these prisons we call "Aquariums" we can recycle and reduce and hope for the best. Most importantly though we can do one thing that these animals can not and that's spread the word! Let people know it's wrong. It's wrong to support captivity, it's wrong to ruin our environment it's wrong to destroy homes 😞 never stop spreading the word. It's all we have left 💔 #OceanAdvocacy #BeAVoiceForTheVoicless #SaveTheAnimals #SaveTheOcean #Respect #Conserve #Reserve #GoGreen #DontBuyATicket #AntiCaptivity
