It’s so fun to watch every angle of humpbacks, from the boat, the air, and of course our favorite being under the water. They are such graceful and playful creatures. We approach easy and slow so that the whale isn’t bothered by the boat. Then we swim over and hope we get an amazing interaction ☺️✨ #djimavic2 🎥 : @_charyse

We’re heading towards Aialik Glacier and its 2,3 km wide tongue – unbelievably gigantic 🏔. It sounds like loud thunder when the enormous mass of ice moves forward and big chunks fall into the water. The sea lions resting on ice floe don’t seem to be bothered by the sound 😴.

I made it a point to share an image of an animal for my birthday in the last years and this time it’s no different. The earth is a beautiful place and I am flipping thankful to have experienced so many first hand accounts to stand witness to that. So here are my favorite animals for my birthday. Yay!

A humpback whale heads into the depths off the coast of #VancouverIsland. Always a humbling experience, especially from the seat of a kayak. Thanks to @katkilp for chauffeuring my lazy ass along in the double as I endlessly snapped photos #JustOneMore #ExploreBC #ShareVI #TurningTheTide

Guys... you know I’d never ask you to sponsor me running a marathon, because I’d never run a marathon!... Instead how about commission me to draw the animal of your choice. The money will go to protecting our beautiful planet (not just killer whales... promise). Check out link in bio. Share with nature lovers and keep me drawing. U xx .

This is a little #cuttlefish as it shifted coloration from yellowish-brown to the pink tinge seen in the photo. It was matching some red crinoids behind it when I took this. So cute! 😍

There is nothing more touching, more heart-opening in all the oceans, and perhaps in all nature, than to be graced by the presence and feel the love between a mother humpback whale and her calf. We must breath in that love and ignite it with passion to protect these gentle and vulnerable beings. Whales are under intense threat from ocean pollution, mercury contamination, ship strikes, naval sonar, and ‘scientific whaling’, which is bloodlust, ego and greed poorly disguised as research. Anyone who has the the incredible honor of connecting with these magnificent beings, would find these acts unconscionable. We must protect and cherish them. 🙏💙🐳

Coral reefs are dying around the world. This is due to coral mining, pollution , overfishing, blast fishing, the digging of canals, and the warming of the water causes coral bleaching, which if severe kills the coral.
One of the causes which many might not have known is an infestation of a unique type of star fish called Crown of Thorns. Crown of thorns are important in the balancing of overgrowth of certain species of corals like Staghorns and plate corals which allow slower growing coral species to form more colonies allowing diversity in the reef. Now, how is it harmful and what is causing this overpopulation of COTs? Tropical countries like the Philippines have been harvesting too much Triton shells for ornamental purposes or export. Mactan Island was once a haven for these shells. Triton shells are one of the predators of the COT. Another is the harlequin shrimp, some pufferfishes and Trigger fishes have been observed to feed on these star fishes. This is the reason why balance in our oceans is vital. Every creature underwater has an important role. We depend on our oceans. The oceans depend on us too. (Photo shows a Crown of Thorns feeding on corals)

Excellent shot of a Galapagos shark and wise words from !

“Large ‘apex’ predators influence ecosystems in profound ways, by limiting the density of their prey and controlling smaller ‘mesopredators’. The loss of apex predators from much of their range has lead to a global outbreak of mesopredators, a process known as ‘mesopredator release’ that increases predation pressure and diminishes biodiversity” (Oikos Journal).
.
In other words, sharks are essential! In order to maintain a healthy and biodiverse ocean the rate at which sharks are killed must come to a halt. It is estimated that 2-3 sharks are killed every second, almost 12,000 an hour, 100 million + slaughtered every year! For perspective, in comparison, according to only 12 humans have been killed world wide since 2011!!! Regardless, if these shocking figures remain the norm a large number of shark species, if they aren’t threatened already, will be threatened by extinction within the next 100 years!
.
With that said, the solution is where our efforts should be focused! We are working to raise awareness and every additional voice that speaks up does in fact make a difference. Speak up about overfishing, drift nets, sharkfin soup, killing for sport, and inhuman killing in general! We cannot remove a species from an ecosystem and still expect the ocean to thrive! A healthy future starts now!

Urchin harvesting can be a lucrative if physically demanding business. Boats deploy divers to scavenge for urchins which are brought aboard in net bags.⠀
-⠀
Japanese techniques for harvesting urchins using were introduced initially but divers here switched to scuba early on. Its an interesting example of a relatively lucrative way of making a living by taking a species that most agree is invasive and a threat to the marine ecosystem – urchins eat kelp, and kelp is good for the environment – as a nursery for small fish and as a sink for absorbing greenhouse gases that cause climate change. ⠀

Well, the island of Ibiza, more accurately San Antoni is more of a party town then a freediving oasis, but maybe freediving needs a new wind in its sails and Molchanova Grand Prix is definitely here to make new standards. The competition starts tomorrow, the conditions on training were from light to rough and who knows what to expect tomorrow. Its definitely a challenging competition, but this is something I usually enjoy, so Im looking forward to diving tomorrow.  Specially because its no fin day, my favorite, and no fin is the most difficult discipline which will be even more demanding with waves and currents that wait for us in the open Mediterranean sea. Its a known fact that smooth seas never made a skilled sailor. .

Emperor penguins may not have the ability of flight, but they sure look like they do as they rocket out of the sea after feeding on fish and krill. To get out of the water, these penguins sometimes must clear many feet of ice, which is made possible by their impressive swimming speed. Emperor penguins use an interesting tactic to increase their propulsion while underwater. Before entering the frigid waters, they raise their feathers to let air in. Once they dive and descend deeper into the ocean, the air volume under their feathers shrinks, so when they are ready to exit the water, they depress their feathers and utilize the compressed air to propel themselves towards the surface. This speed strategy is useful as they hurry to return home to feed their hungry chicks.
