It’s Up To US – Only We Can Prevent Further Ocean Devastation!

As our final SeaQuest Shark Week blog segment, we will be focusing further on conservation and what we can do in our everyday lives to help keep our ocean and shark populations healthy! You don’t need to have a degree or travel great distances to help. These tips are geared for the average household.

Eating less fish
100s of sharks are accidentally caught during the commercial fishing expeditions of our more common seafood choices. While these are just accidents, they are decreasing the shark populations faster than nature can replace them. How can you help? By eating less fish, we can decrease the amount of commercial fishing worldwide and therefore reduce the number of accidental shark deaths caused by the commercial fishing industry. Implement a Fish-less Friday or a No Seafood Monday within your families weekly menu and you will help save sharks one dinner at a time!

Donating to Non-Profits
Donating doesn’t have to be a huge hit to your wallet. Donating $5-$10 every week or even every month can mean life changing effects on the oceans populations. There are dozens of non-profit organizations dedicated to helping save our ocean populations by reducing and preventing devastating ocean pollution. You are one google search away from locating the perfect charity that is helping protect and save the amazing shark species we all know and love!

Sharing Content on Social Media
The easiest way we can all make a difference is the positive influence we can share on our social media. Each time you share ocean conservation and educational content with your friends, families, and followers, you are increasing the number of views that article receives bringing more and more attention to this important cause. Help save the sharks by sharing articles, donation pages, and non-profit organizations’ posts with your friends and followers. You can start by sharing all of the Shark Week at SeaQuest posts!

Thank you so much for joining us this week on our SeaQuest Shark Week Adventure. We hope to see you and your Family at a SeaQuest location soon!

We CAN Stop Plastic Pollution In Our Oceans!

Over the past week, our blog has featured several articles introducing the Sharks of SeaQuest and sharing the importance of the shark species in our world oceans. Now that we have a better understanding of sharks and the benefits they provide, in our final two days we will be focusing on conservation and things we can all do to help protect and preserve the health of our oceans and in turn safeguard the sharks and other sea life that call it their home!

You don’t need to spend money or travel great distances to be a part of the solution. You can implement these simple practices around the house and in every day life and still have a positive impact on the environment!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Everyone has heard these three words before. While recycling can seem like a big job, there are actually a lot of small and simple ways to contribute. Why is it so important to our ocean life? Many species like sea turtles, fish and sharks mistake plastic and trash as food. While ingesting these items may not be immediately fatal, over time it can cause many health issues and diminish the overall health of the ocean populations.

Option 1: Reusable Grocery Bags
Plastic bags are a big problem. One easy way you can help reduce the amount of plastic bags that end up in our oceans is to utilize reusable bags instead of the plastic ones provided at the grocery store. Reusable bags can cost as little as $0 and save millions of pounds of plastic bags from ending up in our landfills and oceans! Here’s a quick and easy way to turn an old t-shirt into a reusable bag in minutes:

1. Flip the shirt inside out
2. Make small cuts across the bottom of the shirt 3 inches up and 1 inch across
3. Tie the first strip to the second, the third to the fourth, etc.
4. Once all of the strips are tied together begin tying the strips together again.
5. Cut off the sleeves along the seem.
6. Cut the neckline to your desired length
7. Flip the shirt right side out and you’re all set!

Option 2: Reusable Water Bottles
Plastic water bottles are another easy way you and your family can help keep our ocean environments clean and our aquatic populations healthy. Purchasing a glass or metal water bottle can save not only your wallet – but also save our oceans from becoming a dumping ground for the millions of plastic water bottles that end up there year after year. SeaQuest has multiple styles of fun and reusable water bottles available for purchase in every gift shop location!

Option 3: Diving or Snorkeling
Want to have a fun vacation adventure AND help to protect and preserve ocean life? Snorkeling and scuba diving while on vacation sends a message to government agencies that there is a need and demand for protected areas of ocean environments and sea life. The more money the snorkeling and diving industry makes each year, the more sharks and other sea creatures that will benefit from this protection.

Option 4: Spread the Word
Tell everyone you can about the importance of ocean conservation! One person can make a difference, but think how much greater an impact we’ll have if we recruit our family and friends to the cause!
