Lost into the blue, a silhouette appears from nowhere. Sliding, mouth wide opened, this gigantic creature continued his way without paying any attention to the « fly » trying to follow him, to capture this moment! Just back form our trip into Malpelo Island on the Ferox: amazing experience, all was Giant…the schools of fish, caves, drop-off, meal portions and of course my first encounter with a whale shark, not a little one. For information, I’m measuring 1m78 without fins ;) Thanks @marta.sostres for the picture @colombiadiveadventures for welcoming us on your expedition’s boat @photodenfert for always be there when I need spares at the last moment! @sonyalpha @sonyalphaphotos @sonyalphagear @sonyimages @sonypicturesfr @sony.france @nauticamhousings @nauticam.images @revorebreathers @plongez.fr

My love of the oceans fuels me and I am captivated by the grace and beauty of the marine life within it. 💙🦈 I believe that people only protect what they love and so I am on a mission to capture inspiring and dramatic imagery that connects the global community to the beauty and vulnerability of threatened marine species. Through this connection, I hope the world will ultimately share my passion for these creatures and be inspired to act before it is too late. 💪🏽🌊 @bluespherefoundation @sea_legacy #turningthetide #racingextinction #savesharks

Polar bear mother and cub. Svalbard. With @melissa_schaefer 💙🌎 Every little thing we do affects this planet and the lives of others. Everything and everyone is connected. • We are wearing out the resources of our planet. Emissions of carbon dioxide accelerate the warming of our climate, pollution of air and water, deforestation... many things we do have a negative effect on life here. But most of all we have disconnected from what’s important. It is time to change direction. Very small changes in our everyday life have a big effect if we all take part. Eat less meat, use public transport, use less water and electricity, bring your own bag to the grocery store, try choosing environmentally friendly products, and… yeah… use your vote. Vote with your wallet and vote in elections. Not voting is voting for the bad guys. 💙 #climatechange #turningthetide

Video by @PaulNicklen // Dancing to the pulse of oceans waves, schools of tropical fish make their way through this sheltered coral maze. For thousands of years, coral reefs like these weathered the storms of natural changes and challenges.

A young Vezo fisherman wrestles with an octopus stuck to his arm in the warm waters off the coast of Madagascar. The Vezo rely entirely on fishing and octopus is of critical economic importance to the small fishing communities on the southwest coast. Commercial fishing is pressing the Vezo people to catch more than a sustainable limit to maintain the area’s unique marine environment of coral reefs, mangroves and sea grass beds. They used to catch just enough to feed their families but since 2003 they have become part of an elaborate supply chain, selling their catch to traders who refrigerate and transport the goods, mostly octopus, for sale to Europe. While traditional fishing methods remain the same, the commercialization has shifted local economies from barter to a cash-based competitive market. Local leaders have been fighting back. In 2004 they outlined an area of about 800 square kms of shore and sea, forbidding the use of poison or mosquito nets to fish and placing temporary bans on fishing. Octopus lay thousands of eggs if given the chance and anecdotal evidence showed clearly that their populations were bouncing back after the Vezo’s self-imposed bans took effect. These innovative conservation measures have not only won them global conservations awards but also made them a test case for other fishing villages under pressure. #turningthetide @sea_legacy @gitzoinspires

Hey hooman, got some sushi? I was so focused on shooting birds in the distance that I almost didn’t notice this little buddy sitting right below me - just a few inches from my foot. I swear I could smell his fishy breath 😆
Brutal and important. @natgeo ・・・ Video by @PaulNicklen // 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. They have 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. He was not dying of old age. 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 bear 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 to our angel donors for your love and support and for keeping our team on location. #Followme at @paulnicklen to see more.

~Polar Bear~ When you can't decide wether to get up or just keep sleeping, we all know this struggle 😅. One of the polar bears I was fortunate enough to see on my recent trip with @wildnaturefotoresor & @staffanwidstrand. It was a very relaxed bear who didn't show any interest in us, he would sleep for hours while we waited and watched taking every photo you can take of a sleeping bear. Close by seal carcasses hinted to his success as a hunter and explained his well earned sleep. Digesting dozens of kilos seal blubber is nothing you'd want to do wandering around!

I loved every moment of my time in Iceland when I visited last month. The beauty of the country took my breath away, I loved the progressive nature of the community and the kind, hospitable Icelanders welcomed us with open arms. I can’t stop thinking about my next trip, but unfortunately that may be put on hold. 🐋 After I returned home I learned that Iceland is underway on an endangered fin whale hunt where over 230 whales will lose their lives in agonizing, horrific deaths this summer. They have already slaughtered over 20 of these majestic animals, including an endangered blue whale. 🐋 The International Whaling Commission banned commercial whaling around the globe in 1986 and this slaughter is in blatant defiance of this international law. I am disgusted to be part of the human race as we stand idly by watching our fellow human beings continue to destroy this planet all in the name of greed. 🐋 If this makes you angry, I encourage writing a letter to the Icelandic government officials to express how you feel about this hunt and how it may affect your future holiday plans in Iceland. 🐋 Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir postur@for.is Minister of Fisheries Kristján Þór Júlíusson kristjanj@althingi.is Minister of Industry, Energy and Tourism Þórdís Kolbrún R.

Every person can make a difference ❤️. Our goal with this project is to donate the proceeds from the sales of books to @africanparksnetwork - an organization that is doing a whole lot of good for national parks across the African continent. But right now, we need your help. Through #kickstarter we are pre-selling “Cooking for Conservation,” a unique cookbook that takes you on a gastronomic safari to the dusty plains of @zakouma_national_park in #Tchad . Intertwined with the 80+ recipes are tales of the bush and life at Camp Nomade. With the funds raised on Kickstarter, we will be able to pay for the first print run and distribution of the book, which will leave us with paid for books that we can later sell and start donating to African Parks with those profits. Help us turn this dream into a reality! We have just three days left to our campaign and we haven’t met our goal. Click the link in our bio to learn more about the project and to pledge! #cookbook #makeadifference #conservation #africa
So grateful for a successful first beach #cleanup ! We collected SIX bags of trash just from the water and shoreline within one hour. It is difficult to imagine how much trash, especially plastic, actually ends up in the water every single day. From plastic bottles, to bags, to cups and caps, to spoons, it’s all there and threatening marine wildlife. . You know there’s an issue when @martyna11228 goes in to get one plasic bag from the water but comes out with four. . Please don’t trash the home of hundreds of thousands of marine species. Keep our beaches clean, help keep the oceans safe! 🌊 . Join us weekly! . #jointhemovement #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #zerowaste #ourocean #turningthetide #4ocean #4seaturtles #beach #environment #unenvironment #litterati #beachcleanup #conservation #environmentalist #coneyisland #coneyislandbeach #cleanocean
Regrann from @cristinamittermeier - Conservation progress almost never happens in a matter of days or weeks. It is a grinding process of years. The challenges our oceans face have never been greater than they are today. Whether it is climate change or plastic pollution, the opportunities we have to resolve these issues have also never been more accessible or promising. Our oceans have an incredible resilience; together, we can make a difference for places like these deep, blue, beautiful, endless Arctic waters and creatures, like a playful baby beluga, that call them home. #TurningTheTide  with @Sea_Legacy. 🐳🐳🐳 #whale #whales #underwater #ocean #nature #oceanlife #saveocean #sea #wild #discovercocean #diving #scubadiving #whalelover #oceanlover Reposted from @king.of.ocean.us

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. #TurningTheTide with @Sea_Legacy. ____________ Entertainer and activist Zooey Deschanel (@zooeydeschanel ), co-founder of the Farm Project (@farmproject ), is guest curating the @natgeo feed today as we launch Planet or Plastic?

Repost from @florent_nicolas_ - [ ENG below 😉 ]  Orques, Norvège. Pendant quelques minutes cette femelle et (très probablement) son jeune jouaient à jeter des coups d´œil dans le fjord. Les orques étaient partout autour de mon bateau, le seul sur zone. Voulaient-elles regarder où sont les nombreux oiseaux qui suivent les bancs de harengs ? Ou simplement regarder le bateau ? Seul sur un bateau de 6 mètres en compagnie de plus de 50 orques, le moment est magique. - -- - Orcas (killer whales), Norway. During few minutes, this female with (most probably) her youngster were playing to have a look at the fjord. The whales were everywhere around my boat, the only one on scene. Did they want to have a look at the birds following the herrings? Or did they want to look at the boat? Being alone on this 6 meters boat with more than 50 orcas around is definitely  a special moment. #ProtectThisCoast #TurningTheTide #nooil #orca #sony #orca #fossilfree @sea_legacy @hamnisenja #lofoten #orcinusorca #orca #norway 🇳🇴 @savethewhalesca #whale @lesothers @lefigarofr #gratitude @sgiambassadors @gp_savethearctic #whales

There are no words to describe the feeling of being in the presence of such a massive and magnificent animal as the humpback whale. They are animals of incredible size and beauty, leaving you with nothing but a feeling of sheer gratitude and appreciation.⠀ ⠀ Sadly, humpback whales and a host of other marine species are continuing to face some serious problems caused by humanity. An international ban on commercial whaling has certainly helped the plight of these beautiful creatures, but marine mammals still face a plethora of threats. In the Pacific Ocean, off the coastline of California, Oregon, and Washington, over twenty humpbacks are killed each year by ship collisions alone. Furthermore, whales and other marine mammals are being killed and injured by driftnets, infamously known as "death nets." Many humpbacks have died on their migration from Alaska to Hawaii, trapped and entangled in fishing lines. Most recently, the Icelandic government has decided to sanction the slaughter of whales, a tragic decision that has led to the deaths of almost 200 endangered fin whales. Check out @sea_legacy for more information, or for any information regarding the conservation of our oceans! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ -⠀ ⠀ -⠀ ⠀ -⠀ ⠀ -⠀ ⠀ -⠀ ⠀ #TurningtheTide #StopIcelandWhaling #BanDeathNets #humpbackwhale #alaska #kenaifjords #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #youngnaturephotographers @youngnaturephotographers @WildlifePlanet #splendid_animals #animalelite @AnimalElite #featured_wildlife @featured_wildlife #wildplanet #wildlife_inspired #marvelouz_animals @marvelouz_animals #naturesbestphotomagazine #natgeo #nanpapix @nanpapix #lenscoat @lenscoat #fstopgear #nikon #D850 #nikonusa #NikonNoFilter
Sometimes the silence on the sea ice is deafening. When that silence is interrupted by the sound of four large paws crushing the snow crust, you know you are alive. Moments like these make everything worth it. 🌎 Me and @melissa_schaefer are putting our first book together this summer… it’s almost done. In stores fall 2019. 🌎 But this year... if you buy one book... get “Born to Ice” by @paulnicklen . It's just too beautiful. Paul is the best one out there, and this book is the most awesome thing I've ever seen. If you buy two books... also get "Amaze" by @cristinamittermeier . I've been a huge fan of Cristina since forever. She's the second most amazing woman in the world after Bubsa. You find both books easily online. 💙 #turningthetide #climatechange #future
