@dominikfeike // When visiting this beautiful beach on the northern coast of Tenerife, we walked past a dead dolphin that was swept over onto the beach. Although we don't know his history and cause of death, it was quite terrifying for me seeing such an amazing animal lie there, especially as I've never encountered a dolphin this close. Whether the dolphin died due to human misbehavior or not, it reminded me of the countless images of sea animals swept onto the shoreline, filled with plastic waste; those that had to give their life because of our irresponsible behavior. It's a problem that can't be solved overnight, however every little step helps keep our oceans alive. Try to cut out plastic as much as you can and if you need to use it, always separate your waste. Don't throw anything into the ocean, your river or lake, any water ever. Most of it will end up in the ocean and cause irreversible damage. If you can, also try to avoid eating fish and seafood you should: 46% of ocean plastic pollution comes from fishing nets. Overfishing is causing serious trouble and we can survive perfectly fine without it, getting our omega 3 the plant based way. Let's not forget we're only guests on this earth, just like all other forms of life on this planet. Let's not use our power in such irresponsible ways anymore. We still have time on our hands, but it's running out. The ocean will thank you.
