It's hard to get to time to yourself. This grey reef shark was having the best mouth clean ever, then his shark friend decides to flip out and ram him! 😂

Another cool time lapse. This one from our expedition to the #SolomonIslands several years back. The #hermitcrabs of the #Solomons. #waittexpedition

From our friends at @natgeopristineseas this #repost in defense of keeping our #NationalMonuments unchanged.
Public lands and waters across America are under threat. There are no replacements for these wild places if they disappear. #monumentsforall

Table corals (Acropora cytherea) emerge from the reef — one of many species of coral that the Pristine Seas team encountered while surveying the raised atoll of Niue and nearby Beveridge Reef. Announced by Niue's government at the Our Ocean conference in Malta last week, a new large-scale marine protected area will encompass 40% of the island nation's waters, protecting diverse coral ecosystems and the highest density of grey reef sharks in the world.

Cinematography by @PaulNicklen // At the northern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia—not far from my home—the wild Pacific shows her colours both above and below the ocean’s surface. In the unending process that is ocean conservation, it’s easy to become disheartened. When the bad news becomes too much, I travel to this beautiful location and stick my head under the thin blue line to remind myself what we are striving to protect, and I get reinvigorated. From the seafloor to the tips of the trees, the sheer beauty and the biodiversity of the Pacific Northwest overwhelms in the best of ways. Follow us at @Sea_Legacy to see how we are #TurningTheTide in our glorious backyard and around the globe. @paulnicklen
