#tbt ...to #summer2000 ...to the (relatively) wild, wide-open and wondrous beach where, growing up, I fell in love with the ocean 💙 🌊 ....and to the first of several times I tried to learn how to surf before succeeding 10 years later 🙃🏄♀️ “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.” -JFK

This award is a big morale booster not only to myself, but to all rangers who risk, and lose their lives in the line of duty. I will continue to fight even harder to protect Africa’s remaining wildlife until my dying day.” Benson Kanyembo, winner of the 2019 Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award with HRH, the Duke of Cambdridge. Thank you Benson for your dedication to protecting Zambia’s wildlife and for inspiring a generation of Zambian wildlife protectors.
What is intensely hydrating, packed with vitamins and leaves your skin baby-soft? It's our new Wyld cleanser (obvs 👻) but that's all thanks to its amazing seaweed content! 🌿✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now this water-based baby is a real toughie. Because it gets thrown about and washed up on coasts, it's developed ways to protect itself from dehydration and sun exposure (like producing a bunch of antioxidants and fatty acids). For you and me, that means all-round healthier skin when used topically. 💫🙌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it's not all just about the plant. We're wyldly passionate about caring for our oceans, and so it made perfect sense to pick an ingredient that is both environmentally friendly, sustainable and great for your skin 🌊
It’s good night from him and good night from me!!!

Like most Saturdays, tomorrow I‘ll be paddling out into the big beautiful ocean – however this time I’ll be joining thousands of others, including individuals across the Australian coast, and supporters around the world 🌎
Of course, we’ll all be there for the same reason: to send Norwegian Mining Company Equinor a big message 👇 #BIGOILDONTSURF .
If you’re not already aware, Equinor plans to deep-sea drill into the Great Australian Bight for oil. Equinor's own estimations show that an oil spill could have a devastating impact on coasts ranging from Margaret River to Port Macquarie, including Tassie — just take a moment to really comprehend the size of that area 🤯
Side note: the Great Australian Bight is one of the most pristine ocean environments in the country (and world). Around 85% of the species that live there are not found anywhere else on earth – this includes one of the last remaining colonies of endangered Australian sea lions.
Regardless of where you live in the world, what ocean you swim in, or breathe oxygen from - if you believe the #greataustralianbight is worth protecting, join us on Saturday morning.
HI SPARKLY MEADOWS ON A RAINY NIGHT ✨💧✨If you think wildflowers are confined to summer, think again lads!!
We are JUST creeping up to the edge of a chilly winter ❄️ WHICH MEANS that there is still time to prep your wildflowers ready for spring! And autumn/early winter is the perfect time to sow your oats...as it were 🌾
The soils are MOIST (behave) and still a bit warm after summer - and lots of wildflower faves (like poppies) need a cold snap to spark germination 💥 They thrive in poor quality soil too (weirdos) - so make sure you clear any decaying leaves up before you get excited ☝🏼
So go get finger deep in your garden or window box before the frosts start to get on the regular!! Nature will seriouslyyy thank you for it come spring - and you’ll have a beaut floral ensemble to snort about!! 🐽🌺🌸🌼🌻🐝🐞🦋

Who says you can’t be cute while you conceal carry? But honestly, it is a struggle now that I am able to regularly. I’m still trying to figure out the whole belt thing. My favorite two accounts for tips are @katleslie25 and @armed.with.contrast! These ladies have so many good holsters and great ways to not sacrifice style for carrying a gun. Protect what you love ♥️
Each year on #northstategivingtuesday non-profits just like the Shasta Land Trust rally their supports for a day of maximum local impact.
What Is Giving Tuesday?
Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #NorthstateGivingTuesday on December 3rd provides an opportunity for people around the world to financially support what matters most to them — and share that support through social media.
How You Can Join The Fun
Please consider joining the fun so we can increase our conservation efforts in 2020!
This beautiful, critically endangered Amur leopard cub, Panthera pardus orientalis, is one of the rarest cats in the world. It is believed that around 50 or fewer Amur leopards survive in a small region of Far East Russia and China, within temperate forests near the Pacific Coast.
There is international conservation work being done to protect these felines. Anti-poaching policies have been adopted by Russia and conservationists successfully lobbied to reroute a pipeline that could have gone through what is left of the leopard's range. Zoological facilities are breeding insurance populations to protect the genetic health of these animals.
This cub from the @statenislandzoo represents a hopeful future for the Amur leopard.
The Tongass National Forest is the nations largest national forest. .
It produces tens of millions of wild salmon each year, which support commercial and sport fishing industries that account for 10% of all regional employment and are worth $1 billion annually. .
Just a few more reasons why keeping the Tongass healthy for fish is that much more important. .

Unexpected perks of shopping secondhand... I recently purcahsed a couple chairs to use at @mermademarket on @offerup, and the sweet lady who sold them to me had a beautiful pomegranate tree that she let me pick some fruit from! I try to shop secondhand whenever I can, it reduces waste and saves lots of $ too! Plus, I love transformation projects (check out my stories to see the before and after of the chairs!) #ClamandClasp#SpeakfortheSea

“Now you sea me. Now you don’t.” - our latest coral awareness design created by @pangeaseed Foundation graphic designer @ejvozzola (USA).
Climate change is killing the world’s coral reefs. But it’s not the only factor turning them into white, dead husks. According to a new study, chemicals humans are dumping into the ocean are making it easier for the hotter weather to do its deadly work. They are becoming more susceptible and less resilient.
While there is little that communities living near coral reefs can do to stop global warming, there is a lot they can do to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus runoff. Responsible waste water and agricultural policies upstream can go a long way in ensuring we avoid overloading our coastal habitats.
