¿Conoces al leopardo marino?
El famoso fotógrafo @ladzinski tuvo la suerte de fotografiar a este leopardo marino en la #Antártica. Ladzinski dice que para tomar una fotografía como ésta debes tener paciencia, suerte, calma, pero sobre todo soportar el frío infernal.

This bear is studying the river attentively, lit by the warm evening light. He’s hoping for a good salmon dinner and ready to jump in.

Contrary to what most people think, bears are not great fishermen. They are successful just 25% of the time. The less experienced the bear, the better for the photographer!
Inexperience means more jumping and running around, and splashes in the water.

Hundreds of millions of sharks are killed every year for their fins. The United States ranks 7th in the world for the fin trade. Several states have introduced bans on the import of shark fins and we’re hoping Florida is next!

IT’S NOT TOO LATE!!! This cruel and barbaric practice must end and it is up to us to be the voice of the voiceless!

Legislation is currently being filed in Florida to ensure the State will no longer support and participate in the global trade of shark fins, a trade that is devastating shark populations around the world at a rate that is leading to the extinction of many shark species.

To show the legislature how important this issue is, we need YOUR HELP! Please click the link in my bio to add your name.

“What can you do on Svalbard ?” Well, most people come to see polar bears. I learned that everything is magical. I walked through clouds while crossing a glacier, did you ever stand in a cloud? I’m as close to the sky i can get. I saw the most magical sunsets I’ve ever seen. The powder sugar tops and the wild ocean. The arctic is magical, I can’t wait to be back. For the first time you feel real, the world feels real, the danger feels real and the beauty of nature. And at the same time, it’s like a dream you never want to wake up from ! 💙 this is what we have to protect, nature, and with protecting the nature we will protect the animals we love so much.

When I took this photo I was looking at a single shoe left on the famouse black sand beach of Ladispoli (Rome). Editing it I suddenly realised how many plastic were lying out there. We are tied to our oceans and seas. We are killing our future. .

One of my largest fascinations.

The best experience of my life with a pod of whales was here at home with @tweedgoldcoastdivecharters in Sep 2018. A day I will never forget! This was the most playful, curious, happy, excited and at the same time very gentle humpback I have ever encounter while observing whales for the past 25 years... I know this might never happen again and I’m ok with that but there might be other very special moments I’m sure... 😍🙏🏻💙
That’s me with the red scuba and this photo was taken by the amazing @timtam_75; one of the most passionate local humans I know about whales!
How many more days to go Tam? 🤗 #waitingpatiently
If you love whales... you know with who you need to go and have a very unique experience out and in the water!

I can honestly say nothing is more fun and challenging than photographing the Sea Lions of Los Islotes
.
but theres a factor of difficulty that no one mentioned. Try lining up for a shot when your being pulled down by your fins, ones chewing on your ears, while another is tugging away at your strobe lights, sometimes is best to just give up on the shot and join in on the fun

~ Over The Mountain ~
Recently I have been able to take a closer look at what locally is know as the Twin Crown nudibranch. It was easy to spot some very different patterning and colours on some compared to others. Personally I cant help but wondering if they truly are all belonging to the same species. With many new species of nudibranch discovered each year, its most likely will be years before we will have an accurate and detailed database. In the meantime I simply love to admire their beauty.

I’m sitting at the airport, waiting for my plane to go back home and reflecting on all the experiences I had on the past year in #hongkong
It was no doubt the most intense year in my short career so far, full of victories, defeats, frustrations and accomplishments. I had the opportunity to work with local authorities inspecting incoming illegal wildlife trade and teaching them how to use our new DNA Toolkit to detect CITES-listed sharks and eel species, leading to shark fin seizures and the first prosecution of European eel smuggling in Hong Kong. Now they are fully equipped to continue the work thanks to @vulcaninc
I also had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with passionate scientists, lawyers, economists, educators, advocates, journalists, TRUE CONSERVATION HEROES, that dedicate their lives to fight for wildlife in the largest wildlife trade hub in the world, behind the cameras, away from the spotlight and definitely without the recognition their deserve. They put up an amazing fight against wildlife crime at all fronts, pushing for new laws, collaborating with local authorities and policy makers, generating REAL scientific data, and educating the next generations to care and make a difference. I will be forever grateful to all of them for teaching me so much and making me feel like home. I look forward to come back in a few months to keep generating data on the shark fin markets, aid local authorities with law enforcement, and starting new and exciting research projects!

Wow... I have always loved whales from an early age, something truly magical about them. I've watched them on all the nature programmes but this is the first image I've seen to get a true sense of just how huge these loving mammals are.
Together we can make the change, together we can be the change to give these creatures their oceans back and to stop needless hunting of these magestical creatures
