Reef Encounters February 14, 2008
An old post worth repeating.
Like many natural wonders that have caught the attention of global tourism, the sea-floor and in particular the coral reefs suffer from too much interest. As well meaning tourists and water-sports enthusiasts, we descend in our thousands if not millions on and into the world’s tropical and coastal waters. Unfortunately the damage we leave behind is becoming all too obvious. Marine life, and the sea on which we depend, surf and swim, is under threat from pollution, tourism, over-fishing and other damaging activities.
Corals and coral reefs are extremely sensitive, just walking on a reef can damage …
Submit your shark November 11, 2007
Huge, docile and beautiful the whale shark live in oceans across the globe, but no one knows where they breed, what their migration routes are or even how many there are.

Ecocean adds your photos of whale sharks to its library and tells you if there …

The Chinese river dolphin is now officially extinct, according to scientists who could not find a single one of the animals during a six-week search on China’s Yangtze River.

The baiji represents a loss not just of a species but a whole family of animals which were …

Killer plastic June 17, 2007
Andy Warhol said “Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.
Except for a small amount that’s been incinerated - and it is a very small amount - every bit of plastic ever made still exists.
At the same time, all over the globe, there are signs that plastic pollution is doing more than blighting the scenery; it is also making its way into the food chain. Some of the most obvious victims are the dead seabirds that have been washing ashore in startling numbers, their bodies packed with plastic: things like bottle caps, cigarette lighters, tampon applicators, …
We are all just little people June 15, 2007
There is an old African proverb it goes…
if many little people
in many little places
do many little deeds
They can change the face of the world.
Well that’s exactly how we feel at zoozoo2. It doesn’t matter how small it is just do it.
As surfers, snowboarders, scuba d’s or runners we can play our small part in determining what happens to our planet by the consumer choices we make and the little things we do.

‘Until recently, humankind seemed to view the ocean as a source of infinite resources. Its vast size and depth and unexplored frontiers made the ocean appear invulnerable to overexploitation. The truth is that the populations of many species are decreasing at an unsustainable rate, and the number of species listed as endangered from marine life families such as whales, dolphins, manatees and dugongs, salmon, seabirds, sea turtles, and sharks to name a few, are on the rise.’ [quote taken from marinebio.org]
In recognition of the ever increasing strain on our world’s marine populations …

Hot water October 17, 2006
Across our planet, scientists, businesses, academics and even some politicians and sport enthusiasts are talking about the negative implications of warming temperatures on outdoor recreation and leisure.
The subject of global warming is a hot topic and is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore.
The oil industry lobby try to tell everyone that it is nothing more than either normal environmental change or the ranting of eco warriors bent on destroying their business. The green lobby on the other hand tell us global warming will heat our planet on average by 6°C in the next century. It may not …
