April 22 marks the 45th Anniversary of Earth Day, an annual event celebrated worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Under this year’s global theme, “It’s Our Turn to Lead,” throughout the month of April, Project AWARE is shining a light on how scuba divers like you are taking action and leading the fight against the growing marine debris problem.

Welcome to the second Sharks4Kids Marine Science Hangout! Each month we connect with a different marine scientist or ocean explorer to learn about our oceans (spoiler alert, sharks might be featured once or twice!). Anybody can watch live and we'll pick 3-4 classes for each session to participate directly on screen. The format will consist of a lesson followed by a Q&A session. Questions can be sent in advance, asked live via the chat sidebar and of course from the onscreen classes.

February's guest, Dr. Mikki McComb-Kobza is passionate about sharing her love of the ocean, the joy of exploration and the critical importance of science. Sustainability is her cornerstone and she believes that every action and decision, no matter how small and seemingly insignificant, can have a positive impact. Her research focuses on the ecological physiology of sharks, skates and rays. Mikki is a tireless advocate for sharks, developing outreach programs, highlighting their global declines and framing new directions for their conservation. Mikki has been invited to speak, educate and conduct research at labs and institutions in South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. Her outreach efforts have been documented in film, magazine and radio by the BBC, National Geographic, Discovery Channel's Shark Week, and CBC National Radio Canada. Mikki has always strived to bridge the gap between research and public engagement and believes deeply in the power of immersing young people in hands on scientific research and discovery. Her current position as Executive Director of Ocean First Institute allows her to do just that. She holds a Ph.D. in Integrative Biology from Florida Atlantic University and is the author of numerous scientific publications.

The theme of the talk will be sharks and their amazing adaptations. Mikki will begin talking about the history of sharks, then species and habitat and specific adaptations, (bioluminescence, superheated eyes, scales, tooth morphology, locomotion). If time permits will discuss sensory biology and adaptations in strange species like the hammerheads.

The goal of Sharks4Kids is to create a new generation of shark advocates through access to a dynamic range of educational materials. Curriculum, games, activities, photos and videos from scientists, videographers and conservationists bring an exciting element into the classroom and show students the beauty of sharks and the ocean. A unique opportunity for the next generation to learn why sharks need kids and kids need sharks.

Creating the next generation of shark advocates through education, outreach and adventure!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Shark Kids. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

In honor of #EarthDay coming up on April 22, we’re celebrating #DiveAgainstDebris leaders making a difference in their communities. Project AWARE supporter, Fredric Irhsen, is recovering and recycling fishing debris found in the icy waters of Saltstraumen, Norway. Read his story here: http://bit.ly/1JsvUuw

SCIENTISTS have been unable to identify a single worthwhile reason for dropping litter.

We hosted the #OceanTrashTalk tweet chat to discuss the growing problem of plastic in our ocean and what we can do to solve it.

A double page spread done on a Wednesday and published on Thursday. It's amazing how much plastic and trash we have put in our oceans. Makes you think

Introduction
I used to travel and dive extensively in Europe and the Red Sea. I blew my first underwater bubbles in the Mediterranean but to be honest didn’t really enjoy the experience. It’s only a few years later during a holiday in Egypt that I fell in love with diving. I climbed the PADI continuing education chart and worked as a PADI IDC Staff Instructor for a few years before joining the Project AWARE Team in 2000. As Project AWARE Manager of the UK office and New Media Specialist, I spread the word about the threats our oceans are facing and how divers can make lasting environmental changes - one dive at a time. I work closely with the Project AWARE global Policy and Diver Engagement team to develop new and innovative ways to get complex marine conservation issues across to a wide and new audience.

Pour la location d’un gîte de 1er choix ou d’une maison de vacances en Cornouailles, je ne peux que recommander cet endroit. Le cadre enchanteur du petit port pittoresque de Mevagissey, et la qualité du service fournie par vos soins ont contribué à des vacances en Cornouailles plus que réussies. Un tout grand merci et au plaisir de nouvelles vacances à Mevagissey!
