Always worth protecting 🐟 These little two spot demoiselles swim freely in the Poor Knights no take marine reserve where @divetutukaka run their amazing eco friendly dive business. I read an article they sent me the other day .. Sadly only 0.5% of New Zealand’s waters are in no take marine reserves. 90% of our seabirds are at risk of extinction. 61% of the worlds open ocean is unmanaged and being exploited. Scientists are calling for at least 30% of the world's oceans to be protected as ocean sanctuaries by 2030 . If nothing is done the consequences are devastating to ocean health. I grew up by, and still live by the sea. It’s heartbreaking seeing with my own eyes what is happening to our oceans. What we can do ? Use our voice. Make a conscious effort to eliminate plastics from our lifestyle. Pick up litter on our beaches. Live sustainably. The ocean is a provider, culturally important and a lifeline to many, we have to protect it. Humans = destruction , there’s no doubt about it. Here’s to big changes so that we can see fish like this everywhere. Ps. How cute is the grumpy guy at the front 🐟 - - #newzealandvacations #newzealandguide #northland #splendid_earth #eclectic_shotz #diving #underwater #globeshotz #moodygrams #allbeauty_addiction #nzmustdo #newzealand #destinationnz #yourshotphotographer #amazing_longexpo #longexpoelite #nzimagery #longexposure_shots #mthrworld #depthsofearth #beyondthelands_ #special_shots #sunset_vision #bestnatureshot #igworld_global #longexpo_addiction #wildernesstones #earthoutdoors #earth_shotz #uniladadventure
