Merry Christmas from 72&Rising!


This beautiful image is by Toni Nossiter. I hope it warms those of you in snow laden countries and inspires the rest to get to the ocean even if only for a small breath of sea air.

Well Christmas certainly has come around quickly again this year, is it just me or do they seem to be flying by faster and faster these days?

Wherever you are in the world we hope that you will have a fantastic Christmas.  Remember to relax, spend time with loved ones and for those, like myself, that may be set to visit a watery expanse over the festive season, please take home your trash, leave only footprints and take only photographs.

If you are planning on spending time over the festive season in, on or near water, take a photo and send it in to us as we would love to see them! We will post a selection on the website so keep your eyes peeled for yours.  The best Christmas water photo will win a great poster showing all the marine protected areas for cetaceans around the world! (I have one up on my wall – you’ll be amazed at how many cetacean protected areas are out there!)

So thats all for now, stay safe and i will be back after the silly season. Merry Christmas all!
