#humpday Note to self: The world needs you to show up today! You are powerful, valuable and what you believe changes the world. ❤️🇧🇿 Because of their indiscriminate nature, gillnets capture protected herbivorous fish and seaturtles. #belize #stopthenets #belizesaidno #toloveandprotectbelize #cleanocean #stopthenets #belizesaidno #nobluenogreen #humpday #oceanconservation #reef #home #safetourism #besensational #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #caribbean #bethedifference #sea #belizeanblues #savethereef #paradise
More than 15,000 Belizeans benefit from fishing on a daily basis. The majority of the fleet use handmade vessels that carry 8-10 fishers out to sea for days at a time. The fishers then use small dories to go out separately to free dive all day for seasonal products like lobster and conch as well as fin fish. #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #stopthenets #belizesaidno 📸by @astrumheli @janellebze #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #stopthenets #belizesaidno
#TGIF Belize’s biodiversity is such that a boat ride often includes a front seat to the acrobatic prowess one of the oceans smartest creatures: dolphins. ❤️🇧🇿 Also known as the "short-snouted spinner dolphin," the clymene dolphin (Stenella clymene) grows to nearly seven feet (2.1 meters) long and dwells in deep waters in tropical and temperate parts of the Atlantic Ocean. Clymene dolphins feed mostly at night when squid and fish come to the surface of the water. The short-snouted dolphin gets its name from the ocean nymph Clymene of Greek mythology. #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #stopthenets #belizesaidno 📸by @eric.angel.ramos #dolphin #clymenedolphin #dolphinlove 🐬 #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #stopthenets #tgif #belizesaidno #clymenedolphin #dolphin #dolphinlove
#waterwednesday Belizean waters are home to several awe inspiring features; the crown jewel in our marine treasure chest is the Great Blue Hole. In early December, @aquaticasubs in partnership with @richardbranson and scientific team, the Great Blue Hole will be mapped like never before. And you get to follow along live! Stay tuned! #toloveandprotectbelize #belize #stopthenets #belizesaidno #greatbluehole 📸by @hamanasi_resort guest Dana Booth. #waterwednesday #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #stopthenets #greatbluehole #belizesaidno
Monday morning selfie😜❤️🇧🇿Legend holds that salt struck sailors saw manatees and confused them for women, thus giving rise to the belief in mermaids. While mermaids hold much of our attention and affection, their real-life doubles are left struggling in the sea. Manatees are easily injured or killed due to their large size and generally slow pace, which makes them vulnerable to being hit by motorboats and caught in fishing nets. #toloveandprotectbelize #belize #stopthenets #manatees 📸by @kilroydenmark #manateemonday #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #stopthenets #manateemonday #manatees

Diving into the weekend like ❤️🐢🇧🇿 Turtles have been swimming in the world’s oceans since the days of dinosaurs. Loss of habitat, climate change and indiscriminate fishing gear are threatening turtle populations around the world.

If you really want to be scared, consider for a moment what’s happening to sharks. Every year, MILLIONS of sharks are killed just for their fins. Sharks are essential to the oceans. In our lifetime, we could witness the extinction of a top predator that has been swimming in the oceans for millions of years. ❤️🇧🇿 #toloveandprotectbelize #belize #stopthenets 📸by @johnmromero #belize #toloveandprotectbelize #stopthenets
