Polar bear family. Svalbard. Photo @melissa_schaefer 🌎 We met these bears in Hornsund, southern Spitsbergen, back in March this year. A mother and her two-year-old cubs, a male and a female, so big they were at times difficult to tell apart from the mother. Now, two months later, the family has probably split up. Cubs usually stay with their mother for two and a half years. Then she has taught them everything she knows about life and survival, and she is ready to breed again.

Warning: Graphic content. Documenting the California drift net fishery was an emotional journey. This fishery has a staggering 65% bycatch rate which includes sharks, turtles, dolphins, and whales. Urge California state legislators to enact SB 1017 to transition California away from the use of harmful large-scale driftnets into environmentally conscious practices. Rob Stewart dedicated his life to championing safe and healthy oceans and we’re proud to carry on his legacy. Click the link in my bio to stand up with @sea_legacy to end this practice and continue helping us in #TurningTheTide.

My entire @Sea_Legacy team was pushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear. It’s a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but I know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. This is what starvation looks like. The muscles atrophy. No energy. It’s a slow, painful death. When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. There is no band aid solution. There was no saving this individual bear. People think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. The simple truth is this—if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. This large male bear was not old, and he certainly died within hours or days of this moment. But there are solutions. We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth—our home—first. Please join us at @sea_legacy as we search for and implement solutions for the oceans and the animals that rely on them—including us humans. Thank you your support in keeping my @sea_legacy team in the field. With @CristinaMittermeier #turningthetide with @Sea_Legacy #bethechange #nature #naturelovers

Reasons why you shouldn't come to Blue Corner to do your dive course: Mantas continually interrupt skills (we think sometimes on purpose) and epic interactions cause minor distractions.

Photo and words by @PaulNicklen |Emperor penguins propel themselves out of Antarctica's icy waters in astonishing leaps that defy gravity. Antarctica is often thought to be a highly isolated and pristine environment. Scientific studies have shown that this is not the case. Microplastics, bits of larger plastic debris that have degraded into smaller and smaller pieces, can be found in the region and are distressing wildlife. Seals and penguins can eat plastic debris and choke, or become entangled in it. Zooplankton, such as krill, also ingest microplastics, introducing harmful chemicals into the polar food chain.#feelalive #TurningTheTide with @Sea_Legacy.

I love this shark. I don’t know his name...yet, but I love him. He’s got spunk, got some real shark character! He’s super curious but super shy and it’s really cute! Quite the stand up sharkie shark! 👌🏽💙🦈 @oneoceansharks does #sharkID for the local species, so I’ll have to investigate into more character details of this guy, feel free to chime in with any info!

Photograph by @paulnicklen // A baby harp seal, just days old, patiently waits for its mom to return from the sea to provide life sustaining milk. Milk that is comprised of up to 50% fat. The math is simple, on cold years, sea ice reaches its maximum extent and there is maximum recruitment into the population and on warmer years, which has been the norm as of late, there can be zero recruitment into the population. The incredible thing is that we can control the fate of this species by regulating the carbon we release into the atmosphere. #followme on @paulnicklen and see how we are #turningthetide with @sea_legacy #seal #bethechange #gratitude #love #beauty #cute #instagood #picoftheday

¿Sabías que la contaminación es la mayor amenaza ambiental a la salud? Causa aproximadamente 7 millones de muertes anualmente. Prematuras. Prevenibles.
La contaminación también amenaza los recursos naturales que nos mantienen vivos, que nos dan de comer. Perjudica los empleos de miles de millones de personas que dependen de estos para subsistir.
Para hacerle frente, se deben poner en marcha políticas específicas que ataquen el problema.
Este miércoles concluyó en Nairobi un importante encuentro de representantes de todos los países que integran la ONU en el que decidieron los pasos que seguirán para abordar la contaminación y proteger la salud de las personas.

At approx 80 degrees N, a birds-eye view of the MS Freya off the coast of Svalbard - just sifting through all my photos and the one resounding theme that keeps coming back is water, lots and lots of water and not a lot of sea ice .. the melting that is going on is incredible! As my friend @colin_qatar said, “ Whether you believe climate change is natural or otherwise, a change is undeniably taking place in the world which threatens the existence of a countless number of species. We have the knowledge and power to reduce this change and it should be our responsibility to do so...”

Curious harbour seal in Smeerenburg fjord on the west coast of Svalbard. The seal followed our zodiac for quite a while, maybe wondering who are these crazy people in weird positions trying to get a shot from as low as possible 😝

Quiero conocer aquellos rincones del planeta que no estén manoseados por el hombre. Quiero observar a los animales en su hábitat natural, escuchar el sonido de las hojas de los árboles del bosque empujadas por el viento, ver flores y frutos de todos los colores, sin agrotoxicos, sin Monsanto. Lamentablemente, por más que ésta sea un área profegida, el impacto que generamos en otras zonas (áreas de deforestación por ejemplo) afecta negativamente a las especies fuera y dentro de la reserva (varias en peligro de extinción). Les propongo que seamos conscientes de lo que consumimos. Tenemos el poder de cambiar las cosas. La Tierra nos está pidiendo ayuda. Hay que responder. 🌴

I want to know those corners of the planet that are not groped by man. I want to observe the animals in their natural habitat, listen to the sound of the leaves of the forest trees pushed by the wind, see flowers and fruits of all colors, without agrotoxics, without Monsanto. Unfortunately, even though this is a professed area, the impact we generate in other areas (areas of deforestation for example) negatively affects the species outside and inside the reserve (several in danger of extinction). I propose that we be aware of what we consume. We have the power to change things. The Earth is asking us for help. We have to answer.

We have entered the last week of our fundraising campaign. We still need a little bit more to reach our goal.
The welfare team is observing the behavior of the 13 new arrivals. They are following our introduction protocol to make sure the elephants can find suitable partners to form social groups. To be able to do this, they need to keep in mind the different characters.
We already see some promising results that we will share with you in the next weeks.

Today is Endangered Species Day, A day for us all to reflect on how we can help those animals that need a little extra help to stay on this earth with us, and to be grateful that they still are. Also, a day to acknowledge and to be grateful for all the wonderful people working tirelessly to ensure the survival of the worlds most endangered species.

"💙🦋 Most of the world has no clue what a manta ray is, let alone that it’s vulnerable. Unlike stingrays, mantas are not dangerous. Instead, they are highly social and gentle creatures! As trivial as it might seem, slight shifts in public perception can subconsciously affect efforts to save vulnerable species.⠀

Manta rays (and their relatives the mobula rays) are under threat because targeted fishing programs around the world are harvesting them in unsustainable numbers. Instead of their meat, fisherman are usually after them for their gill rakers, which these animals use to collect food such as plankton. The gill rakers are in high demand in Asian markets because they’re believed to cure a wide variety of ailments.
