Such a wonderful whale to meet. It didn’t matter that the weather was so bad. It just wouldn’t stop coming back for more. I hope I get to meet this one again next year.

Blacktip and whitetip reef sharks are plentiful in the reefs of the southern Maldives. They spend their day circling corals in search of large schools of fish, which make easy targets. Like a vast majority of sharks, they are timid and benign toward people that respect their behavior, especially around food.

Diving in the Maldives was quite a treat and, while most of the reefs appeared to be quite healthy, divers with experience in these atolls have observed significant degradation over the past few years. Our oceans and the life they support are under acute threat as a result of human behavior and, while it may already be too late for some reefs, we control the fate of many more yet. #maldives #diving #underwater #scuba #shark #turningthetide @sea_legacy

We live in a beautiful world remember to stop and take a few min to appreciate nature. The sunsets are back, golden hour is fantastic and the reflections are terrible bueno.

Seeing this and then knowing one of the biggest powers in the world has a leader who cares nothing about the state of our oceans is heart wrenching 🐢

Oh, the tales that could be told of this haunting place. For first time visitors, Antarctica seems like a stark and harsh environment that makes travel a tough feat. Yet, the real challenge is disentangling yourself from this place once you have entered. Here, we find the biggest impacts of climate change, felt most deeply by the many creatures that call it home – and by those of us who hold this place close to our hearts and worry for its future.

"Knowing what I know now, I could never write that book today. Sharks don't target human beings, and they certainly don't hold grudges." - Peter Benchley, author of "Jaws" 🦈
Yep, they have lots of big teeth.
And a pretty bad reputation.
But the truth is in the facts: sharks don't kill people, people kill sharks. Up to 73 MILLION a year just for shark fin soup! 😳🍜❗️
White sharks are apex predators for a reason. Healthy seas need thriving shark populations.
Let's leave them alone to regulate ocean ecosystems as they have for millions of years.
Learn more about these jawsome animals by watching @sharkweek on the @discoverychannel, starting tonight at 8/7c! 🎉 #sharkweek #teamcanon #sundayfunday #worthmorealive #turningthetide

My camera is my passport to the world. It is an extension of my creative mind and it helps me move people from apathy to action. This image of beautiful lady earning her living by selling handmade products in the #atitlanlake is one of my #favoriteshots not just because she is beautiful, but because her smile say so much.

Happy SHARK WEEK! Some of the most memorable and honestly, craziest moments of my life have been while filming Shark Week. Thank you so much to everyone who helps make that possible. Especially, my wonderful and supportive family and my great friend @joeromeiro333.

So I’ve just started a fundraising campaign to kickstart my creative career but also to help others. You see a while ago I got ill and I had to give up glassblowing. It was like a bereavement, I lost myself, my self confidence, a little bit of my soul. But then I learnt to look at life differently and through creating at home I rediscovered my passion. I’m a designer 1st I just don’t work with glass anymore. Being creative saved me and now I want to share that.

It’s Shark Week! Did you know there are more than 450 species, ranging from 8 inches to 40 feet long? Only 4 whale sharks would fit the length of an Olympic-size pool. Stay tuned for more bite-sized facts throughout #sharkweek . 🦈

Our new study is the largest survey on the shark fin trade to date. The differences between data reported by CITES parties and the proportion of CITES-listed species in trade (9,200 samples analyzed), suggest that there is still a large volume of fins being illegally traded into Hong Kong and highlights the need for better enforcement of international trade laws. Improving inspection efficiency by centralizing ports of entry for fins and conducting real-time DNA testing in the field are some of the measures that CITES-parties can put in place to meet their obligations to this treaty.

Back to reality after a super fun, relaxing, productive weekend. It’s always funny to me that THIS IS WORK. We wash our faces with the #1 skincare brand and get spoiled for sharing these products and opportunity with others. Life doesn’t have to be like it’s always been. A simple thought that this could be the best damn decision we’ve ever made has led us here & I couldn’t be more grateful. Whether you want to pay off debt, make an extra $500 a month, take a vacation, fund your dream house, diversify your income or retire from the 9 to 5...it’s possible. Have dreams & set goals. It keeps life interesting. Now I can’t wait to get home and squeeze my little monsters. #changingthetrajectory #turningthetide #lifelooksdifferent #3to5yearplan #mompreneur #makingithappen

It's finally Shark Week! Every day we will talk about #oceanoptimism and celebrate not just sharks, but the conservation successes we've seen because of shark ambassadors like you! This new portrait collection was created to explore our sharks more intimately, and start the conversation on some of the ocean's most threatened or hardly known sharks. From the gentle Zebra Shark to the well known Great White, we will explore their lives, get to know them, and see their stories unfold. Learn more in my story, and tell me which is your favorite!💙☺️———————————————————— #Sharkconservation #oceanart #sharks #ocean #conservation #sharkweek #instaart #artforchange #instaart #saveourseas #padi #floridaaquarium #turningthetide #saveoursharks #sharks4kids #sciart #wildlifeart #ecoart #artivism #wildlifeart #artistinstudio #wildlifeartist #graphite #drawing

Photo by @cristinamittermeier// Smile for the camera! It seems like these two couldn’t get enough of the camera! These two huskies are part of an Inuit dog sled team from Thule, Greenland. Driving their dog sleds, the hunters cross the sea ice to reach their hunting grounds, just as they have done for millennia. Theirs is a fragile way of life, played out in one of the harshest environments on Earth. As the sea ice shrinks with each passing year, the Inuit, and all peoples of the north, face an existential threat.
#Followme at @cristinamittermeier to learn more about traditional sea ice hunting and more of the dog sled team!

Photo by @shawnheinrichs // Contrary to its name, whale sharks are not whales! They are the world’s largest fish - growing as long as 60 feet. Despite their massive size, whale sharks are the “gentle giants” of the ocean. Unlike their other shark relatives that are meat-eaters, these giants are filter feeders. Because of its size, slowness, long development time, and high value on international markets, the species is inherently vulnerable to intentional fishing and the illegal wildlife trade. Incidental entanglement is also a threat. #turningthetide with @shawnheinrichs @bluespherefoundation @sea_legacy

~Arctic Fox~

No idea what this fox is eating. He scavenged among washed up algae and occasionally found a worthy snack. If it was my dog I'd be like: "What are you eating? Hey! Oh no....what are you eating??? Stop! Open up! 😱". It is so easy with these foxes to be reminded of dogs, eventhough they are wild animals, they are so trusting and let you be around them. These clever little generalists always know the best places to find food in any season, as active hunters they feast on chicks of breeding birds in summer or follow polar bears in winter to steal a bite of seal. They really aren't picky, and they can't be to survive some of the harshest climates this planet has to offer.
From my recent trip with @staffanwidstrand & @wildnaturefotoresor to Svalbard.

Big thank you to @nikondeutschland for the support on this trip!

“Manta Rays of La Reina, La Paz, Baja California Sur”
.
The wingspan of a manta can reach 20 or more feet across 😳 and can weigh as much as 3,000 pounds. The manta, unlike other rays, does not have a spine on its tail for defense. The manta is a filter-feeder, combing the waters for the smallest of prey, using their cephalic fins to channel water into their mouths

I've always found coral reefs to be the most intriguing and beautiful aspects of the ocean. It baffled me when I first found out that reefs were made up entirely of living organisms. They provide homes for up to 4,000 species of marine animals and plants and yet they cover less than a percent of the ocean floor! They provide safe places for spawn, nursery and refuge as well as feeding grounds for large varieties of organisms and they play such a vital role to ocean life.🐠🌏 #Coral #Reefs #Ocean #TurningTheTide #Clownfish

#MH_STORIES / I’M A MOMMAS BOY ↓
If myself or my siblings were ever in need of anything, my mother wouldn’t let anything stop her from helping us achieve it.
I remember this day vividly.
With my @sonyalpha #alphacollective family, I watched these @natgeo moments happen before my eyes.
I watched as these mothers waded in this unbelievably blue water, to hunt salmon.
She’s pretty submerged here, but she was massive.
She didn’t mind us observing from the boat.
She remained focused on her mission to feed her cubs.
My mother has done so much for me, that even if I wanted to stray away from the path she led me on I couldn’t.
She’s not as big as the momma bear pictured here.
She doesn’t have her intimidating claws either.
They do share one thing.
They both provide an enormous amount of love and diligent care for their young.
Mom can float just about anywhere, so I guess they share that too!
Wether you have one or both parents on your life, give them a call right now and tell them you appreciate them.
You have no idea how much they sacrifice at times to make sure you have opportunity.
The least you can do is show them it was all worth it.

Leões marinhos em Great Bear Rainforest, no Canadá. 🌊

#REPOST
@sea_legacy
Photo by @IantMcAllister // BREAKING: Oil tanker ban for the waters of the Great Bear Rainforest is finalized today by the Canadian government with the passing of Bill C-48. With this announcement, marine mammals like these Steller sea lions that make their home in the Douglas Channel , in Gitga’at territory, will now be safe from the threat of an oil spill on the scale of the Exxon Valdez.

Thank you to the spirit and resolve of coastal First Nations, countless British Columbians and people from around the world that collectively made for this historic decision. We did it. We should be proud. The team at @PacificWild is so thankful to work for and on a coast alongside so many others that put the safety and health of this coast ahead of all else. Thank you for helping in #turningthetide for Great Bear.

Happy 50th to my friend and mentor @paulnicklen!! He’s a little bit famous these days 😉, so I guess most of you are familiar with him and his work for @sea_legacy and @natgeo.
I met Paul while he was working on a story on the coast of BC, Canada. He was shooting at the Skookumchuck Narrows, and I happened to know my way around there a little bit having been kayaking and diving there for 10 years already. Somehow, I convinced him to let me be his assistant for the rest of the shoot. We became good friends, and I ended up assisting him for the next several years, shooting several stories for @natgeo.
We’ve shared some epic experiences—from the highest highs to some super difficult lows. We’ve glided through huge pods of narwhals in a kayak, hung out all day with a spirit bear in his rainforest home, and gotten in the water eye-to-eye with a massive bowhead whale. We’ve also had our lives (or at least our genitals) threatened, drifted out to sea for miles on broken pieces of ice in the Arctic Ocea, and fought through dislocated shoulders, flooded cameras (sorry about that one, Paul), and failed ultra-light aircraft engines.
Through it all, Paul’s commitment to photography and conservation has remained steadfast. Together with his partner @cristinamittermeier and @sea_legacy, he is, as he puts it, #turningthetide. His photos are of course legendary, but it’s really the way he’s using them to bring about change that is impressive and important.
Paul, keep up the good fight brother. We need more like you! Congratulations on 50 and can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for us next my friend.
