The best free-diving coaches are non-human. ⭐️
Could watch these sea pups forever. 🤗 Such curious, cute and incredibly sleek animals, always popping up to say hey in the surf or trying to play games with you freediving. My first obsession with Pinnipeds came from volunteering at a marine animal rescue with them as a teenager, and I’ve never looked back since. 
An animal I’ve grown up around that I can’t imagine home without. Yet another reason to #FightForTheBight

#10YearChallenge .
Time flies by under our nose, day to day we don’t see these impacts, maybe we are lucky in that regard or maybe we aren’t because it makes us unaware of the irreversible damage we are doing to our planet. .
Your choices every single day, affect the world around us. The way you choose to live, the choices you make, it affects everything. Imagine if all 7.7 billion of us stood up, chose to be more conscious ?! Making daily changes in our lives, became more conscious. It’s up to us, we don’t own this earth, we are inhabitants and share it with so many other incredible beings that we are losing at an alarming rate because humans have been so greedy. We might of caused this, but we sure as hell can turn it around again.
.
Let’s make the next 10 years the time we see our environment bounce back. Choose to not support animal agriculture, or animal products, eat local, grow your own food, support renewables, consume less, waste less, enjoy the outdoors, make sure your purchases aren’t detrimental to the environment, talk to kids, educate them, stop using single use plastics, speak up against deforestation, big oil drilling, animal cruelty, the exotic pet trade, just to name a few. .
.
Among many other choices I’ve made to help the planet, I’ve also been vegan over 10 years. Be the change you wish to see in the world  🦋⭐️

Still holds my hand when she drinks a bottle. 
Bunji looks so small here, I guess she always will be in my head / heart but she is such a little lady now. She has bonded with George, the other Euro at #TwoSongsSanctuary, which is such an amazing thing. 
It took me around 6 months to get Bunji used to a new place when we first decided to start the sanctuary, new carers, and a forever home. She was my little shadow, and as she got older although she has always been an independent little girl, she wasn’t too interested in the other roo’s which is a Euro thing ( they are not as mob orientated as Grey and Reds ). She has created such a close bond with George now, they lay together and follow each other around, makes my heart so happy.
I’ve been seeing her so much these past few weeks and everytime she always hops up to me from the other side of the paddock. .
Bunji and every one of the 19 rescue animals we have at the sanctuary inspire me and make me so happy to know we have created this for them.
Grateful for everyone involved in this project every single day. .

You have two homes, the earth and your body, you must look after both

Entering 2019 I feel motivated, excited and driven. I don’t always overshare on here, and love that my audience is so cause driven, so supportive and inspiring.
I choose at the start of every year to reflect and re-evaluate to make sure I chase after my passions harder than ever. To look after my body, my mind and always make time for the things that make my soul sing.
Choose to be fearless, and to never give energy to anything/ anybody that bring toxicity into your life. Surround yourself with people who uplift you, who inspire you, who love you, cherish them. 
Learn, learn and then learn more. 
To share the things I learn about the world that I think the world should see, and to encourage a life which is more conscious, for all. 
People are such a powerful force, and everyday I am grateful for this platform and this world where we connect globally with like-minded, driven people who have inspired a generation of creative, inspiring world changers. To all of you, I’m grateful to have you in my circle. Let’s do this 2k19

Jurassic Park
The Great Southern Reef and I need your help 
.
At @BaluBlueFoundation, we have been working alongside our resident Marine Scientist / PhD Candidate, @SahiraBell, to raise awareness for the Great Southern Reef, which covers 71,000 sq kilometres of reef systems on Australia’s Southern Coastline. An incredible reef system which is facing unprecedented pressure from a changing climate, and could potentially face destruction from oil and gas companies, this pursuit could not be of a higher importance to us. 
We are working together to apply to have The Great Southern Reef nominated as a @MissionBlue Hope Spot.  A successful Hope Spot nomination would prove monumental in having the Great Southern Reef recognised as its own ecologically vital entity, both on a National and International level (more information at link in bio).
.
We have been advised that in order to strengthen the nomination we require letters of support from companies, research institutes and conservation groups who can support our proposition and verify the importance of our nomination. If you believe in the longevity of our reef systems here in Australia, and yourself and/ or your company want to help us protect this area, we would greatly appreciate your letters or support for this nomination, by the deadline of Jan 19, 2019.
Please email us directly at info@balubluefoundation.org
.
Much love from all of us ! Let’s protect this incredible eco system. .

Australian Sea Lions are endemic to this beautiful place I call home. Western Australia and South Australia are the only places they reside. They are endangered, and the population is decreasing, there is every reason to speak up for them. 
The biggest threats to these sea puppies is gillnets that target sandbar, whiskery and dusky sharks, along with other pollution. The biggest threat to our coastline here and to all marine life, is the threat of an oil spill. The #GREATAUSTRALIANBIGHT is no place for big oil. Growing up here I’ve seen the storms and swells that hit this coast. We have so much to protect. Speak up against big oil, protect our coast, protect the biodiversity, and our livelihoods. The future is renewable.

This turtle friend and I, hope you are avoiding plastic straws this weekend, and forever 
.
Not just turtles, but all marine life are chowing down on plastic by mistake that ends up in our seas.
.
Ever since I learnt about this, I’ve chosen reusable, the less we consume, the less will be produced. There is already way too much plastic on this earth. What are your New Years resolutions to be plastic free, or help the environment ?
