Celebrating World Oceans Day

As a passionate scuba diver, in love with the wonderful underwater life, I couldn’t but feeling deeply involved by World Oceans Day.  Oceans are endangered, and only education – with special regards to the younger generation – can help preserving such a beautiful environment. The weekly #FriFotos Twitter event, dedicated to World Oceans Day, was a huge success, with hundreds of awesome photos shares. It was a lot of fun and, hopefully, also a way to increase public awareness. Enjoy some of my favorite shots!

    Beautiful pictures, saving oceans life is so important, as much as saving any other natural environment on the planet.

      You’re so right, Angela. There’s so much every one of us could do to be more respectful of the environment.

    Lovely photos. I think that travel is a great way to increase environmental awareness. Seeing animals in their natural habitat (outside of theme parks and zoos) helps us to see how interconnected they (and we) are with our environment.

    Lovely selection – and I agree anything to raise awareness is very good thing. I was a scuba diver – haven’t done it since you had to memorize tables for length of time allowed at different depths.

    Nice to know that you’re a passionate scuba diver as well. Such a wonderful environment, and so endangered. I truly hope that more and more people will get aware of how much of it is being destroyed and feel compelled to do something and be more respectful.

    I’m an avid scuba diver as well – didn’t realize you were. I love the idea of World Oceans Day and creating awareness. As a diver I feel it’s our responsibility to increase awareness since we are privileged to see the ocean in a way that many people will never.
