Ahead of the #WorldOceansDay, we want to share with you a wonderful story ๐Ÿ“˜โœจ we just received from Germany (thread ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ)

A dead sperm whale full of plastic.

A little boy, Lennard, so impressed that he asked how he could help marine animals...

Lennard (3) did not want to wait to go on a beach to pick plastic.

He decided to act now, with his friends from the kindergarten.

He was right: even if you live in Monheim ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช, at 250 kms from the sea, less trash in Nature means less dead ๐Ÿ‹

This #WorldOceansDay I'm inspired by all the dedicated people working everywhere to understand and protect the dominant geographic feature of our planet. So today I'm going to be tweeting about just a few of those people to spread the news of their good deeds
1st up @HeatherKoldewey. Heather is at @OfficialZSL & has done incredible work with @projectseahorse, @Nets2Carpet and the Chagos MPA with @Bertarelli_fdn. Any one of those would be huge, but all three is just amazing. zsl.org/users/heather-โ€ฆ
Nxt @CoralReefFish Luiz Rocha, originally from Brazil, is leading a team of folks @calacademy discovering new fish diversity in the gloom beyond regular SCUBA depths, using rebreathers. Every bit as hard as space walking, maybe harder. calacademy.org/explore-sciencโ€ฆ

Last December, I spent some hours here in Sant'Elena, a reserved and silent corner of Venice, taking in the waves and the beauty of a plastic-free environment. This happened... #BeatPlasticPollution #WorldEnvironmentDay
I regained a renewed sense of hope, particularly for my country Nigeria, that we could really resolve this plastic crisis - which is driven by unethical production, consumption, and disposal worldwide. #BeatPlasticPollution #WorldEnvironmentDay
Plastic is part of lifestyle in Nigeria. In 2015, @JambeckResearch listed Nigeria among the Top 20 Countries with the Worst Plastic Waste Management.
The first image tells how all that plastic get into the ocean. #BeatPlasticPollution #WorldEnvironmentDay
