A white-tailed eagle a.k.a the flying barndoor, passing by our blind in the Stockholm archipelago. The Baltic Sea is probably one of our World's most beautiful seas, appreciated by far more than the 90 million people living around her. However, the Baltic sea is also one of the most vulnerable and pressured marine ecosystems on the planet. Overfishing, eutrophication and chemical pollution put immense pressure on this nearly landlocked ecosystem... But there is still so much to cherish, love, protect and fight for! I have, along with @irisalexandrov and our @tierragrandefilms team, followed life around the sea for years for our upcoming film for #balticsea2020 . Stay tuned! #mattiasklum #whitetailedeagle #protectbiodiversity #balticsea #sdg #sweden #livingthedream #balticsea2020 @tierragrandefilms @mattiasklumofficial @irisalexandrov @thephotosociety @mattiasklumcollection
A Green Crested Lizard perched on leaf in majestic Danum Valley, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Of all rainforest destinations on our planet this is truly one of my favourites. I've really been lucky to work in many incredible places and Danum with its ancient rainforest and mindboggling biodiversity is hard to beat! In fact Borneo, as an island, provides habitat for about 15,000 known species of flowering plants, and more than 3,000 tree species, 221 terrestrial mammal species, and 420 bird species. But these unique places need to be protected and cared for! Please support rainforest conservation and ethnic minorities globally!

Ghostlike elephants during a nightly thunderstorm in Hwange, Zimbabwe. Hwange National Park is one of the few great parks of Africa without any major rivers or lakes. Due to this, the park’s population of water-dependant species congregate in enormous numbers around the waterholes throughout the dry season.

A Manta ray flies by a coral mound in Raja Ampat, Indonesia. This is one of my favorite marine ecosystems in the World. By intelligently preserving and respecting the remaining beauty on Earth we actually secure long term sustainable success for mankind! The only safe path ahead is to love and enjoy nature in a more thoughtful way anchored in science and "common sense"! Right now you can see some of my Raja Ampat work exhibited @clarionarlanda in Sweden. #clarionarlanda #mattiasklum #fineart #nikonambassador #saveourseas #protectbiodiversity @mattiasklumofficial @natgeo @thephotosociety @irisalexandrov

A female polar bear and her cub in front of the massive Nordenskiöldbreen, Svalbard Norway. However powerful an apex predator, her hunting skills and success is critical for her own survival and for feeding and teaching her cubs to find food for themselves. According to some scientists, polar bears may be just as smart as some apes. Their success at hunting seals in a dynamic arctic environment is one sign of their brain power. This is learned behavior and reveals that polar bears are very intelligent. They are highly cognitive creatures that top the food chain in polar regions. You have to be quite clever to do that. Hunting and trapping a seal is no easy matter. Looking forward to returning to Svalbard with @irisalexandrov #svalbard #polar #polarbears #arctic #protectbiodiversity #stopclimatechange #expedition #mattiasklum #cubs #UN #mom #IQ #mattiasklumworkshop #predator #norway #savethearctic #wwf #iucn #saveourseas #nikonambassador @mattiasklumofficial @mattiasklumcollection @thephotosociety @natgeotravel @natgeo @irisalexandrov

A Brown noddy tern or Common noddy outside a cave in the Galapagos, Ecuador. This beautiful tern, like orher terns, lives in colonies as a safety measure. They are frequently seen on top of the heads of pelicans in the attempt of stealing any leftovers, or by elegantly picking food from the surface of the water or by plunge-diving. The nodding movement when performing the courtship ritual has given them their name.
