Every piece of plastic ever produced, is still in existence. It NEVER breaks down into nothing! This movie gives an idea of the consequences of plastic consumption, and importantly of how we dispose of it. So much of it ends up in our oceans :(

An interesting piece of memorabilia' Amazing that after all this time, we're still fighting against people wanting to cull the sharks. Back in those days, they didn't know any better. Now ignorance is no excuse There are still drum lines and shark nets along the coast of Queensland, as well as contracted shark fishermen that catch/kill approx 550 large sharks per annum.

So just a few #hammerheads today at Windarra banks!! It's a difficult site to get to, but today conditions were perfect! Velvety blue water with 40 metre vis.

Not much is known about these curious creatures but we do know they love to swim with people. We spent two hours with this guy and ELEVEN of his family members! They mimicked our... View details ⇨
Our thoughts and hopes are with those in North Queensland at the moment preparing for the arrival of Cyclone Debbie. She is only approx 200km shorter in diameter than devastating Cyclone Yasi in February 2011. Debbie is predicted to hit as a Category 4 cyclone in the area between Ayr and Mackay, including the Whitsunday's sometime early tomorrow morning (Tuesday 27th March). Evacuations are...
