"Shellfishing without litter" on World Oceans Day: youth action on plastic pollution

Since march 2016, Ocean Alive undertakes the “Shellfishing without litter” campaign, which consists in monthly awareness and beach cleaning actions in the Sado estuary engaging volunteers, stakeholders and particularly, local fisherwomen.

In Portugal, young people aged 15-18 years old have negative behaviours and disregard the marine litter problem. In order to tackle this issue, on the 8th of June we will dedicate to an awareness and beach cleaning action of the Sado estuary margins engaging 75 students of this age group from local schools.

This action has the support of UNESCO-IGCP National Committee as institutional partner. It will be made in partnership with Setúbal and Palmela Municipalities, Barbosa du Bocage and Palmela middle schools, Club of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World and is sponsored by Iami and El Cristo.

‘Albatross’ World Oceans Day film screening
The Flagship Education Centre
‘Albatross’ World Oceans Day film screening

To celebrate this year’s World Oceans Day on Friday 8 June, we’ll be hosting a special screening of the long-awaited film ‘Albatross’, by acclaimed filmmaker and photographer Chris Jordan, at The Flagship Education Centre in Auckland’s downtown Wynyard Quarter. We have used Chris’ stunning and shocking imagery since establishing Sustainable Coastlines to starkly illustrate the impacts of plastic pollution, and this film delves deeply into this story.

The movie starts at 7.00pm, but doors are open from 5pm, with smooth tunes provided by the fabulous Murry Sweetpants followed by salty stories to warm us up from 6pm. We’ll have Michele and Jon Henderson tell tales of their 16k nautical mile journey to Aotearoa on their sailboat the Areda. Their experiences throughout the journey, (particularly in the South Pacific and the Pitcairn Islands) made the plastic problem very personal.

Entry is free, and the bar will be open with drinks from our friends at Corona, Yealand’s Wines and Phoenix Organics. We’re even putting on pizzas thanks to our buddies at Sal’s Pizza.

“Guardiani della costa” dell’Istituto “Elena Cornaro” di Jesolo (Venezia) - To protect the Sea for a better future

Gli studenti dell’Istituto Alberghiero I.P.S.E.O.A. “Elena Cornaro” hanno adottato un tratto di costa da salvaguardare e sono diventati  “guardiani della costa”. L’Istituto ha aderito al progetto “guardiani della costa”, promosso dallaCosta Crociere Foundation, con l’obiettivo di salvaguardare il mare e il litorale marino, in particolare adottando il litorale di Jesolo Lido, nel territorio della città metropolitana di Venezia. Salvaguardare l’ambiente marino-costiero, uso sostenibile dell’ambiente marino e sostenibilità sulla tavola, poiché tutto si ripercuote sulla nostra alimentazione. Il progetto rientra nell’ambito delle proposte di “Citizen Science” dove gli alunni insieme ai docenti sono stati attori quali “scienziati non professionisti” nella raccolta, osservazione, analisi di specie animali e vegetali, specie aliene, sulla biodiversità, informazioni sull’uso del mare e delle coste, inquinamento, per condividerli in una rete a livello nazionale.  Gli alunni hanno effettuato un monitoraggio lungo la costa adottata, fotografando e catalogando le informazioni georeferenziate con l’ausilio di strumenti digitali.

Nell’ambito del progetto si è previsto di organizzare un evento a sostegno dell’iniziativa “World Oceans Day” al fine di sensibilizzare, oltre le coscienze dei ragazzi, anche gli abitanti della comunità locale per la salvaguardia dell’ambiente marino per un futuro migliore. L’iniziativa prevede la raccolta di rifiuti nel tratto costiero interessato con la collaborazione della Guardia Costiera e dell’Amministrazione comunale.

“PREVENÇÃO DA POLUIÇÃO MARINHA E SOLUÇÕES ENCORAJADORAS PARA UM OCEANO SAUDÁVEL "

A Direcção Nacional dos Assuntos do Mar do Ministério das Pescas e do Mar de Angola tem como sua missão de elaborar e desenvolver uma estratégia Nacional do Mar, que visa melhorar o quadro das actividades e usos na costa e no mar, como também a preservação e conservação do ambiente marinho em Angola, usando vários instrumentos legais e estratégicos tais como o Ordenamento do Espaço Marinho, Áreas Marinhas protegidas, etc.

É de pensar nesta abordagem de melhorar e enquadrar um melhor entendimento a nivel Nacional sobre o uso sustentável do Oceano que o Ministério das Pescas e do Mar ira no dia 8 de Junho de 2018 celebrar o dia Mundial dos Oceanos.

Dia Mundial dos Oceanos é comemorado em 8 de Junho, criado em 1992 durante a Conferência das Nações Unidas sobre o Ambiente, que ocorreu no Rio de Janeiro. Esta iniciativa oferece oportunidades para identificação de acções tendentes a proteger os oceanos e motivar a mobilização internacional em sua defesa. Os oceanos cobrem 71% da superfície da terra e são fundamentais para o funcionamento do planeta.

  Angola tem uma costa de 1.650 km banhada pelo Oceano Atlântico, rico em recursos marinhos e uma invejável diversidade biológica. A nossa costa é influenciada pela correntes fria de Benguela e pelas correntes quentes de Angola. Deste modo, o Ministério das Pescas e do Mar associa-se aos esforços mundiais para a celebração do Dia Mundial do Oceanos, cujo lema é: “Prevenção da Poluição Marinha e Soluções Encorajadoras para um Oceano Saudável”.

World wide
1+A Day

Plastic is a major issue facing our oceans and we can all do something about it - watch this video to find out a way you can help keep plastic out of our oceans.

A lot of the plastic we walk past in our streets each day will end up in the ocean. If every one of us picked up at least one piece of plastic each day, this would make a significant difference in the amount of plastic making it's way daily into the ocean. If we all do a little bit, then together we can make a huge difference

1er CINE FORO del Documental “PLANET OCEAN” (First Movie Forum of Planet Ocean Documental )

El Grupo Región insular (GRI) realizara el 1er CINE FORO con el motivo de celebrar este próximo viernes 8 de junio de 2018 el Día Mundial de los Océanos 2018 y el 2do aniversario de nuestra asociación con el apoyo y patrocino de la UNIMAR.

Este ciclo de CINE FORO comenzara con la proyección de la película Planet Ocean (Planeta Océano en español), un brillante documental de 90 minutos, filmado por los directores franceses Yann Arthus-Bertrand y Michael Pitiot, junto con su equipo, en colaboración con OMEGA y con el apoyo científico de la expedición Tara, donde se muestran imágenes extraordinarias de nuestros notables océanos: la fuente de toda la vida en nuestro planeta. Planet Ocean, fue presentado en Cumbre de la  Tierra de 2012 en Río de Janeiro (Río +20), Brasil, en junio. Es una película de colaboración que tiene como objetivo explicar algunos de los mayores misterios naturales del planeta y pone de relieve la importancia de que la humanidad aprenda a vivir en armonía con nuestros océanos.

El 5 de diciembre de 2008 la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas, por iniciativa de Canadá, resolvió en la Resolución 63/111 que a partir de 2009 el 8 de junio sería el Día Mundial de los Océanos. A partir de 2009 se celebra cada 8 de junio Día Mundial de los Océanos. El concepto de un «Día Mundial de los Océanos» fue propuesto por primera vez en 1992 en la Cumbre de la Tierra en Río de Janeiro como una manera de celebrar los océanos que comparten los países de mundo y nuestra relación personal con el mar, así como para crear conciencia sobre el papel crucial que los océanos desempeñan en nuestras vidas y las distintas maneras en que las personas pueden ayudar a protegerlos.

Este año 2018 el lema de la ONU es «Limpiemos nuestros océanos» y la celebración gira en torno a iniciativas para prevenir la contaminación por plástico y proponer soluciones para unos océanos más limpios.

Los Océanos son los que generan la mayoría del oxígeno que respiramos. Asimismo, sirve para concienciar a la opinión pública sobre las consecuencias que la actividad humana tiene para los océanos y para poner en marcha un movimiento mundial ciudadano a favor de los océanos. Este día quiere movilizar y unir a la población mundial entorno al objetivo de la gestión sostenible de los océanos, que son una fuente importante de alimentos y medicinas y una parte esencial de la biosfera. En definitiva, esta celebración es un buen motivo para celebrar juntos la belleza, la riqueza y el potencial de los océanos.

Por consiguiente, el GRI tiene el placer de invitar a la población neoespartana a celebrar los Océanos y el 2do aniversario de actividades de nuestro grupo este viernes 8 de junio de 2018  de 4:00pm a 6:00 pm en la Sala de extensión, en la UNIMAR, Valle del Espíritu Santo, Isla de Margarita.

La Junta Directiva de GRI

2nd Annual #cleanforturtles Family Clean-up Day

Clean the beach and save our turtles ! ! #cleanforturtles2018

This is your chance to do something for our local environment and possibly save a Green Sea Turtle by your actions. Every year the beach at ShamWan on south Lamma Island is closed to the public for five months (end May to end October) so the rare and endangered Green Sea Turtles can come ashore and lay their eggs. Sadly, the shallow water and sandy beach has become so polluted that if any turtle was to come ashore it would have to fight its way through years of micro plastic and marine trash before it can even start digging a nest to lay its eggs in. Do something now - help save these graceful marine animals before they are all gone. 

We will be cleaning the area At ShekPaiWan which is next to ShanWan so as to stop any of the trash at this beach from reaching the turtle beach. 

WHEN: Sunday, 27th May 2018; 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
START: Central Pier No.4, Take 10:20am ferry to Sok Kwu Wan

We need volunteers that "Walk the Walk and Talk the Talk" and are willing to walk to ShekPaiWan next to Turtle Beach (Sham Wan - Lamma Island) and clean the trash off the beach before the typhoons and tides blow it all around to where the turtles lay their eggs.

Turtle Beach (Sham Wan) on Lamma Island is closed to the public every year from the end of May until the end of October. This will be our last chance to visit the beach prior to it being closed to the public three days later.

This is a truly magical place and the only regular nesting beach for the green sea turtles so this will provide you with an opportunity to help protect an endangered species; keep Hong Kong that little bit cleaner, as well as a hike to this wonderful and remote beach. Please sign up to help keep our home clean!

Schedule for the day:
• Meet outside Pier 4 in Central at 10:00 am.

• Take 10:20 am ferry to Sok Kwu Wan (left-hand side of the pier).

• Regroup at Sok Kwu Wan to start the hike towards Sham Wan Beach.

• Easy, scenic hike through Mo Tat, Yung Shue Ha, and to ShekPaiWan. The hike should take around an hour. Please bring at least 2 liters of water and/or energy drink with you, as well as sunblock and a hat. Even though we'll be at a beach, please wear appropriate hiking clothes, ie: don't wear sandals!

• Arrive at Sham Wan beach around 12:00AM and start CLEANING!!!! We'll spend about 1 1/2 to 2 hours beautifying the beach. Additionally, we will be traveling through a three-hundred-year-old village and will have a chance to visit a rare "air raid" shelter built by the Japanese during World War Two

• There are frequent ferries back to Central ferry pier from Sok Kwu Wan Pier should you wish to leave early (2:35PM, 4:05PM & 5:35PM - allow 1 hour to arrive at ferry pier from Sham Wan)

This is a family friendly educational day and we encourage you to bring your family and friends for this worthwhile event in one of the rarest and unique parts of Hong Kong. 

NOTICE TO ALL PARTICIPANTS:
• Please ensure you bring sufficient snacks and water to last you for 3-4 hours of outdoor activity.

• Please take all safety precautions by wearing appropriate clothing/shoes and bringing any other necessary personal items.

• Intended participants should consider carefully whether they wish to take part in the event as no accident insurance will be provided. Therefore, in case of an accident, the organizer will not bear any legal liability.

• The Environmental and Hygiene Department will provide the necessary gloves and garbage bags in support of the cleanup.
