A newly hatched leatherback sea turtle scrambles toward the ocean, about to experience saltwater for the first time in Trinidad. Only about 1 in 1000 hatchlings will make it to adulthood due to predators. But nature has compensated for this and female leatherbacks have multiple clutches of hundreds of babies. What these animals cannot overcome are the anthropogenic stresses, such as getting caught in fishing gear, poaching and climate change and as a result have struggled to survive.
Leatherbacks never stop swimming once in the sea; they remain in perpetual motion. Their lineage dates back more than 100 million years, older than dinosaurs.

On Japan's Shodoshima island, winter temperatures drop below freezing. To cope, Japanese macaques, or snow monkeys, huddle together for warmth.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // The calm and temperate waters of Holbox (Quintana Roo) are important feeding grounds for hundreds of whale sharks. Not surprisingly, the area also attracts hordes of tourists keen to swim alongside these gentle giants. In recent years, advisories and regulations have come in place to protect the sharks, but like many eco-tourism regions, the Isla Mujeres finds itself seeking solutions to the complex equation that is wildlife conservation and tourism. #FollowMe on @CristinaMittermeier as our @Sea_Legacy team investigates what it means to be a responsible tourism operator and guest. #Ocean #Conservation #Tourism #WhaleShark

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPlookup
Tilt your eyes upward for this weekend’s hashtag project: #WHPlookup. 👀 Here are some tips to get you started:
Think vertical. Exaggerate the vertical composition of your photos and videos by putting your hair up in a beehive-styled do, building a five-scoop ice-cream cone or stacking a tall pile of summer reading.
Shoot from a low angle. Capture the height of a redwood tree canopy from the forest floor, or take a street-level Hyperlapse of the sun rising between skyscrapers.
Capture the action. Focus on a basketball player dunking, an airplane flying directly overhead or the mountain summit where you’ll finish your climbing journey.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPlookup hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
