We’re here to #ProtectWestPapua. In December, the Indonesian government will vote on whether or not to uphold legislation declaring this region a “conservation province,” which would guarantee its protection from persistent industrial threats. Blue Sphere Foundation—in partnership with Conservation Intenational—needs our help launching a media tour across the region to engage local communities and politicians, and ensure their support for this critical law. Find our more @bluespherefoundation

BSF founders Shawn Heinrichs & John Weller have worked closely with Conservation International to support the provincial government’s efforts to designate West Papua as a “Conservation Province”—or Provinsi Konservasi—protecting it from ridge to reef. Passage of the Provinsi Konservasi legislation would be a critical win for global conservation efforts. Funding will go towards educating communities across West Papua to influence the outcome of a legislative vote in December—ultimately deciding the fate of the province. Join the movement on June 27th. #ProtectWestPapua ..... Find our more @bluespherefoundation

We're here to protect West Papua, Indonesia—the epicenter of global marine diversity. Home to more species of fish and coral than anywhere else, West Papua also supports the world’s second largest rainforest and the largest mangrove forest—a critical buffer to climate change. But, its riches are a constant attraction for exploitation and recently, the region has come under increasing threat from both marine and terrestrial pressures. Protecting this area is a challenge we simply cannot tackle alone. Help Blue Sphere Foundation raise $100K on June 27th during a 24-hour, all-or-nothing fundraising event. #ProtectWestPapua Find our more @bluespherefoundation

MOTHER’S LOVE The unconditional love! Mother's love, is a gift from above, that is a wonderful treasure. The bond that a child develops with his mother can never be severed. You grew as an organism inside her for months. She carried you and sustained you, sharing her sustenance with you through your umbilical cord. When you are born the cord is severed. It is never severed in her heart. That bond lasts forever. As we grow up we become our own and may come to forget that woman who nurtured and loved us. But remember this, she will never forget you and never stop loving you. ↠ 📷 @erick.higuera

↘ Check out our featured photographer this week. ↠ 📷 @erick.higuera …. …. A new family of humpback whales rest in the waters of Roca Partida, Revillagigedo Archipelago, Mexico. The Archipelago of Revillagigedo is one of the largest marine protected areas in the world, located in the Pacific Ocean, is one of the most biodiverse marine ecosystems in Mexico, which is a refuge for a great variety of pelagic species such as sharks, mantas, whales and fish, among many others.

Indonesia — with its 17,000 islands, healthy reefs, strong currents and productive seas — offers the perfect habitat for manta rays to thrive. This baby reef manta in Wayag Lagoon, eastern Indonesia, could live up to 50 years.

15 - Following a landmark victory for mantas at the 2013 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (@CITES), and after a one-year campaign in Indonesia by @conservationorg and @wildaid , in January of 2014 we achieved an unprecedented achievement: securing full national protection for manta rays and establishing Indonesia as the world’s largest manta sanctuary.

Raja Ampat is considered by many to be the crown jewel of the Coral Triangle, the very epicenter of global marine biodiversity. It’s also home to one of the most charismatic and graceful of marine creatures: the manta ray. Ever since my first encounter with a manta ray a decade ago, I have been captivated by the gentle, curious and intelligent nature of these ocean giants.
