Seals and many other marine animals can easily mistake plastic for food. An estimated 17.6 billion pounds of plastic enter our oceans every year. Seals, dolphins and other marine life can be killed by ingesting or becoming entangled in plastic. Use your voice today to support a first-of-its-kind bill in the U.S. that would reduce single-use plastics polluting our oceans. Follow the link in bio to support #PlasticFreeSeas.

The small beginnings of the largest fish in the world.. Whale sharks are known as the gentle giants of the ocean: the largest fish in the ocean today, yet is a filter feeder. These sharks have hundreds of vestigial teeth, but use their gills as their means of sorting food! A whale shark will suck in a huge amount of water, before forcing it out through their gills. The gills act like a sieve; the water flows out while small prey is caught and swallowed! This makes the whale shark completely harmless to humans, anything larger than a few centimetres is coughed out! Video by @wildlifetrustofindia 💙
A moment in the presence of the 👑💙 by @olly_scholey - A killer whale hammering towards me! This was definitely a good moment to be looking down a wide angle lens, which conveniently makes everything look a bit smaller and further away 😃 a completely unthreatening, but utterly exhilarating encounter out in the open ocean 💙
Image and words from Mr @juansharks 💙🦈 - We all thought this was Deep Blue turns out she was even bigger. @oceanramsey @oneoceansharks nicknamed her “Grandmam” after Oceans great grandmam that religiously swam from Diamond Head to Waikiki almost everyday of her life. Swipe to see me with Grandmam and a rough tooth dolphin as a escort photo by @forrest.in.focus. 1st photo is mine.

This is just the most magical thing to watch! What a miracle of nature. 💙✨🐬Captured on board @newportcoastaladventure - Electrical dolphins!! Last night Capt Ryan took the Zodiac out in the amazing bioluminescence condition we’ve been having in Newport. With the talents of @patrickc_la, we captured this incredible display as dolphins swam through the dinoflagellate plankton, producing one of the most amazing light shows in nature!
