#TBT to those mornings spent gazing out over the frozen Arctic Ocean during my 2am polar bear watch shifts. Most of the mornings definitely did not look this nice, most were foggy, grey and snowy...picture the best, bury the rest!#arctic#nunavut#arctic#weberarctic#wildlife#ocean#frozen#sea#life#earth#wildlifephotography#Cangeo#office#work#explorecanada#polarbears#whales

These beluga whales are also called “Sea Canaries” because they seem to sing. Belugas are my absolute favorite animal. 🦒#wildlife #marinemammals #Zoologist #beluga

The conservation work we do could never happen without support in many different forms. This past summer, Jim Simons and @EyosExpeditions supported @sea_legacy with use of the MV Archimedes, a beautiful 222-foot expedition vessel. Tomorrow, we will announce an amazing offer for SeaLegacy supporters who want to help in smaller—but no less important—ways. We can all give back to the oceans in different ways. Share your stories, donations or volunteer hours, and know that, whatever you can give, the oceans thank you. #TurningTheTide

Video by @PaulNicklen // Despite the recently-established Lancaster Sound marine protected area in Canada’s North, dangers to the fragile Arctic ecosystem remain plentiful. Mining, shipping, and petroleum interests have set their sights on the resource-rich area, especially as climate change frees areas from ice. Increased ship traffic and the accompanying submarine noise bring a negative impact for whales and, of course, represent the threat of spills. #Followme at @PaulNicklen to see both the beauty and the tragedy of Canada’s remote region.

Video by @CristinaMittermeier // Witnessing this “rainbow river” of beluga whales in the Canadian Arctic was a highlight of my career. We traveled with @Sea_Legacy on expedition to the newly-blessed Tallurutiup Imanga marine protected area—an exciting new step by the Canadian government in attempting to protect the longest coastline of any country in the world. Mining and petroleum interests have their eyes on this region though, and it's up to the Inuit and every Canadian who cares about the environment to protect these lands from careless resource extraction. Follow me at @CristinaMittermeier to see more stunning whales, bears and landscapes from this region.
