Our team member @alexfilardo was on an expedition earlier this year to the isolated Laysan Island (Kauō), one of the Northwest Hawaiian Islands. There he found threatened, endangered, and endemic species. Unfortunately, he also found an overwhelming amount of human impact on this island which is otherwise uninhabited by people.⁠

"We are days away from our best chance to save the #HighSeas from the destruction of human hands. Starting on August 15th, world leaders will meet in New York to finalize a treaty that would ensure the protection of this critical area.⁠

The area known as the High Seas covers nearly two-thirds of the ocean. This vast and mysterious region is almost entirely unprotected. No one lays claim to it – and no country’s laws govern it, leaving it vulnerable to human activities such as overfishing, pollution, shipping, and potential mining.⁠

This is our moment to act." Add your name to encourage a strong treaty to protect the High Seas at (linked in our bio).⁠

The shark fin trade is brutal, fins are sliced off live sharks and millions perish each year. Many airlines perpetuate this barbaric trade by facilitating transportation. You can help stop this! Join the #FlyWithoutFins campaign at (linked in our bio) to tell airlines like @Avianca to be a part of the solution and commit to a shark fin ban!⁠
