We see a lot of great photos and videos throughout the week. So, we thought it was high time we started rounding up some of our faves each week and highlighting one on Friday to inspire weekend adventures. We call it the Osprey Round Up.
We thought we’d give you a good dose of cuteness and a kick in the pants this Friday. Our friends at 5Gyres just released this short PSA, featuring Randall from Honey Badger fame. Take a moment to watch and then do your part to stop plastic pollution.
We are proud to support 5 Gyres, an organization that is on a mission to research, educate and ultimately end plastic pollution in our world’s oceans. To understand the impact of plastic pollution, the crew sails through the five subtropical gyres. And now you have the opportunity to go with them.
Lobbying in DC is exhilarating, but feels a bit like banging my head with a hammer. Saving our snow is a worth while cause, especially since almost all of our sports depend on it, not to mention our drinking water! In celebration of National Oceans Day yesterday, I wanted to reflect on water. Almost 50% of our world’s drinking water is tied up in snow and glaciers. As our world’s glaciers melt away, our ocean levels are rising, threatening our beaches and our cities.
Our ocean. It generates most of the oxygen we breathe. It gives us food. It regulates our climate and cleans the water we drink. And for anyone who has ever stood on the beach and closed their eyes, listening to the waves crash—our ocean is exhilarating and provides limitless inspiration.
It’s our ocean, so we need to protect it. Today is World Oceans Day. What are you doing to celebrate and protect our oceans?
