Humbled and grateful.
.
I became a professional diver almost 22 years ago and have dedicated my adult life to showing people the underwater world and it's conservation. I never dreamed that I would be able to interact with whales the way I did over the last week. Their naive playfulness and curiosity is remarkable, oblivious to the fact that humans are constantly destroying their home.
.
People often tell me they want to help but don't know where to begin. Pro tip: start small. Don't worry, you'll get addicted to doing good and you'll get better at it.
.
- don't bag your veggies separately at the supermarket.
- try to reduce your carbon footprint (ie walk instead of drive when you can)
- donate your spare change to smart conservation projects like @sealegacy or @nakaweproject .
.
Little by little, we'll make things better.
.
Lots of ❤️

Photo by @DaisyGilardini // White terns are incredibly beautiful little birds that range across the islands of the South Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Central Pacific. . They live along the coast and move to wooded areas during the breeding season. They do not build a nest but lay the egg on a depression of a bare branch. They feed on fish, crustaceans and squid. The common threat of the white tern is predation from rats and cats which has been introduced in some of the Islands where it breeds.

Follow me @DaisyGilardini for more images and stories behind the scenes.

Geographic coordinates:
15.865762, 97.210687. Past December 6th we caught a Delphinus delphis splashing, curling, guiding and surfacing along with a remora on the side. Until we found one humpback whale we were not able to film. Yet the mutualism witnessed keeps inspiring us to set for cleaner goals. Photo by @losttide_

#birds swallow #microplastics too. Just two hours of plastic picking at #delmarbeach this weekend. What started out as a wave turned into a bird. No surprise there! #saynotosingleuseplastic #protectouroceans #protectgreatmotherearth #thetimeisnow #wearetheones #turningthetide #ocean #beach #microplastics #savetheocean #pickupone @sealegacy #love #protectouroceans #saveourseas

Photo by @shawnheinrichs // An American crocodile lies motionless with only its eyes breaking the calm surface in The Gardens of the Queen (‘Jardines de la Reina’ in Spanish), possibly one of the last relatively intact reef habitats in all the Caribbean. Whereas most of the reefs in the region have been severely overfished and/or destroyed, this area hosts and astonishing abundance and diversity of corals and marine life. Spanning 840 square miles of islands, reefs and mangroves, this remote archipelago located 60 miles to south of the main island of Cuba, has been a strictly protected marine reserve since 1996. And the results of this bold conservation effort are staggering.

For years I have had the ambition to create a picture of what the Caribbean looked like before we so severely depleted it. Our modern society is trapped by a “shifting-baseline,” where most people forget how abundant and thriving the oceans once were, and allow the current diminished state to become the new baseline. Three to four decades ago, the Florida Keys and much of the Caribbean had thriving reef systems akin to that of the Gardens of the Queen, but today only a shadow remains of this once-flourishing sea. My hope is that by presenting what a truly healthy marine ecosystem should look like, I can help inspire people to raise the bar higher and take more aggressive steps to conserve what is left, and even more importantly, choose to make significant course-corrections to help the reef systems of the Caribbean one day recover. #turningthetide with @shawnheinrichs @bluespherefoundation @sealegacy

Humpbacks on a mission🐳
These whales are normally in pods of 2-4, but sometimes more when they are hunting or travelling. There is a total of 11 humpbacks in this picture😶
The average length of a humpback is 14m, the fluke (tail) you can see in the bottom left is up to 5,50m wide, while they can weigh up to 44 tons😰 This makes for a truly scary but also humbling experience when you swim right above them.

Harp Seals. Born with a fluffy white base coat, harp seal pups stay with their mothers until they are physically able to survive on their own. Sadly, a problem with temperatures and ice has arose. Climate change. Climate change is and will be affecting icebergs, sea level, and coastlines. Climate change is a relevant issue and is caused by pollution and fossil fuels that deteriorate the barriers of the earth. How does climate change affect Harp Seals? More and more icebergs have been melting due to rising temperatures and baby Harp Seals, incapable of swimming and surviving on their own, have been slipping into the waters and drowning. Climate change is a relevant issue that a lot of people don’t even know about! #harpseals #educate #explorepage #foryou #worldproblems #turningthetide #share

From up high the nature may look pristine, sadly the reality is different with loads of littered and washed up plastic ruining beaches that are sea turle breeding grounds #planetorplastic #turningthetide #cozumel #quintanaroo #mexico #arnezphoto #arneztravelling #circlepacific

Little moments like a baby humpback showing you its belly can make any day the best day! 📷 @karimiliya
