These two huskies are part of an Inuit dog sled team from Thule, Greenland. Driving their dog sleds, the hunters cross the sea ice to reach their hunting grounds, just as they have done for millennia. Theirs is a fragile way of life, played out in one of the harshest environments on Earth. As the sea ice shrinks with each passing year, the Inuit, and all peoples of the north, face an existential threat. #Followme at @cristinamittermeier to learn more about traditional sea ice hunting and more of the dog sled team! #TurningTheTide #dog #bestfriend #arctic #amaze #greenland #dogsled #amaze

Beautiful shot but the multitalented and beautiful @munsea_inspired ! #Repost @munsea_inspired ・・・ “The idea that sharks will drown if they stop swimming is a common one, but it's not entirely true. There are two main ways sharks go about breathing. Ancient shark species breathed through a method called buccal pumping, which some of today's sharks still use. Muscles around the sharks' mouths actively pull water in, sending it over their gill membranes and out the gill slits. The sharks absorb oxygen from the water as it passes by. Lots of sharks that have adapted to bottom feeding use this method. Many modern sharks breathe through a technique called ram ventilation. By swimming fast, these sharks actively force water into their mouths for processing. Usually, sharks that get their oxygen through ram ventilation can also change techniques if they need to. If they're idling, they'll use buccal pumping, but when they pick up speed, ram ventilation takes over. Some sharks' muscles aren't strong enough to actively pump water, though. Called obligate ram ventilators — or obligate ram breathers — these sharks are the ones rumored to have to swim constantly to stay alive. In the past few decades, however, researchers have seen obligate ram breathers taking the occasional pit stop. For example, scientists have documented some species basking in underwater caves or on sandy seafloors, sometimes solo and sometimes in groups. It's unclear how these species cope with what seems like a sudden drop in oxygen. These resting ram breathers may have scouted out caves where the water had high oxygen content and lower than average salinity. In other cases, how they managed was less apparent, but the even greater mystery — for now at least — seems to be why a shark would take a breather that could keep it from breathing.” - @discoverychannel @sharkweek #howsharksbreathe #sharkeducation #sharkdiving #helpsavesharks #startnow #sharksarefriends #coexist #oceaneducation #oceanconservation #awareness #savesharks #respectouroceans #speakforthosewhocant #saveourseas #protectouroceans #northshore #oahu #waterinspired #turningthetide #apexpredatornotmonster
Let’s talk about this amazing cat! The cheetah has always been one of my two favorite animals. Most people know about its top speed of 70mph. But did you know that the black tear marks on its face are used to reflect the glare from the sun, as well as a defense mechanism against competing predators? 🤔 Sadly, these amazing animals are dropping in number, down to about 8,000 left in Africa. That’s a loss of about 90% of the species over the last 100 years! Two major contributors to this are: 1. habitat loss and fragmentation of their native range due to human expansion, and 2. high mortality rate of cheetah cubs (about 90%) due to competition and human-wildlife conflict. Thankfully, there is something being done. Dr. Laurie Marker and the #cheetahconservationfund are working alongside African communities to educate and create solutions that will both benefit the communities as well as prevent the cheetah from going into extinction. What can we do? Visit www.cheetah.org and get informed! You can donate to the fund which helps supply funds for research and support. You can even sign up to volunteer at one of CCF’s fundraising events! Check out the link in my bio to visit the website. A small change can make a big difference! #cheetah #ccf #cheetahconservationfund #turningthetide #endextinction #conservation #wildlifeconservation #africa #captconservation #smallchangebigimpact

The device that will clean up the world’s biggest accumulation of ocean plastic • • • The Great Pacific Garbage Patch covers 1.6 million km2 – roughly three times the size of France. Containing 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic (250 Pieces for every human on earth) and weighing about 80,000 tons, the @theoceancleanup team are the first ever to try tackle the problem since it was discovered in 1997. The system is set to be shipped out this summer and is said to be capable of cleaning half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just 5 years. • The device consists of an anchored network of floating booms and processing platforms that can be sent to garbage patches around the world. Instead of using boats and nets, the Ocean Cleanup uses long floating barriers that harness the natural movement and energy of the ocean. In this way, only the plastic itself will be focused on. The current will float under the booms, taking away all sea life and preventing by-catch. The plastic will collect in front of the floating barrier and then be filtered and stored for recycling. • • 📸 by The Ocean Cleanup | @theoceancleanup • • • #oceancleanup #greatpacificgarbagepatch #breakfreefromplastic #360fortheplanet #plasticfree #planetearth #plastic #plasticpollution #oceanpollution #beatpollution #health #awareness #yourbottlecounts #act #green #blue #recycle #reuse #reduce #startwith1thing #turningthetide #bethechange #waste #awareness #stopusingsingleuseplastics #environment #sustainability #cleanseas #cleanup

¿Qué hay debajo de la delgada línea azul de California? Los tiburones azules son uno de los animales más graciosos y hermosos con los que he tenido el placer de participar bajo el agua ( @paulnicklen ) A pesar de que pueden ser los principales depredadores en su dominio, no son rival para la pesquería de redes de deriva de pez espada de California. Estas redes de una milla y 100 pies de profundidad enredan y matan a incontables tiburones anualmente. ¿Vale la pena tener pez espada en nuestros menús y arriesgar la supervivencia de las especies costeras de California? #TurningTheTide with @sea_legacy #nature #naturaleza #loveworld #loveanimals #freeanimals #love
I met Jack @jacklightonloggerhead of @loggerheadmarinelifecenter (the Sea Turtle Hospital 🐢 ) at a @sea_legacy gathering. One of the best things about having like-minded individuals in your life is the individuals you’re introduced to - which is often amazing people doing profound acts. I wholeheartedly couldn’t wait to visit him and the turtles after speaking to him and seeing his eyes light up telling me about his work. As a boy, Jack fell in love with sea turtles and has come full circle being able to work with them as an adult. Love how we already know where we should be as children. After touring the center, it was apparent how much love the workers and volunteers displayed for the injured sea turtles. If you haven’t been - you should put it high on your list. The sea turtle hospital operates on donations alone. There’s also immense amounts of research, and education is also being done here - the data they collect about each turtle is a sample of our oceans health as a whole. You’re able to see each turtle’s individual story near their recovery tanks. There are around the clock veterinarians and staff looking after the recovering patients. Jack told me 100% of the turtles are now arriving with plastic and trash debris in their system. We’ve got much work to be done! Refuse the plastic - save the turtles. Before I left, Jack left me with a new family member, my adopted turtle Skerry. Skerry is named in honor of Brian Skerry, a leading National Geographic photojournalist specializing in marine wildlife and underwater environment. I’m able to check on Skerry’s progress online at marinelife.org. My heart couldn’t be more full. If you need a gift idea, consider donating your time or money to this place - you might gain more than you know. Grateful for good people like Jack, for the education they offer to the public, for the real-time data they collect, and of course my new family member, Skerry. #bethechange

Finally I have some "down time" and can go through photos from the last two months in Baja California and the Sea of Cortez. An almost daily occurrence were large pods of common or bottlenose dolphins coming to inspect our ship! So much of the Sea of Cortez is protected, it allows for large pods of cetaceans as well as large cetaceans (e.g. Blue Whales) to thrive. There is still more to be done but the wildlife in Baja is amazing! Stay tuned for more travels with @lindbladexp and @natgeo 🐬

Ice, ice, baby. Editing photos at home from the recent winter is always emotional and sometimes a bit strange. The winter light feels almost unreal. It’s like something from a dream, or another world, not an expedition we were in the middle of only weeks ago. ❄️ The sea ice in some areas is full of beautiful ice bergs like this one. Thousands of year old glacier ice waiting to travel and unite with the ocean again when summer comes and the sea ice breaks up. #arctic #svalbard #love // with @ericnixonphoto @b_law_kaye

California Moray Eel (Gymnothorax mordax) // The narrow crevices of rock that the moray hides within limit how much it can open its mouth. That means that unlike other fish species, eels are unable to open wide enough to create a negative pressure to help it swalllow. Instead, emerging alien-like from its throat are the pharyngeal jaws — a second, smaller set of extendable jaws that pull prey down the eel’s throat. Be careful of where you put your fingers.
Does this look familiar? I bet you've tried it. It's a Spider conch shell. Saang in Filipino. It's a popular delicacy. This is so good when grilled and quite enjoyable to pick out the meat from the shell using a pin.

This collaboration with Alucia Productions and Fusion TV, takes you onboard the first non-Cuban research vessel, The Alucia, that has ever visited the area. We have reserved some never-before-seen footage from this expedition exclusively for our Tide members. Become a member today through the link in our bio and be sure to watch the full documentary at @fusionProjectEarth. @FusionTV , @PaulNicklen , @CristinaMittermeier , @UnivisionPlaneta , @andy_mann , @woodshole_ocean , @aluciaproductions , @iankellett_story , #TurningTheTide
Viktig melding fra våre venner hos @racingextinction og litt informasjon om hvordan du kan hjelpe med dette hvis du har tid! 💙 ⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇ "Photo by Howard Hall // This blue shark caught in a driftnet is nothing more than collateral damage. The driftnet fishery off the coast of California is targeting swordfish but many unintended victims pay for it. The United States’ driftnet fishery has an alarming 65 per cent bycatch rate, this means that for every swordfish they catch, 7 “other animals” are caught. This is the highest bycatch rate of any fishery in the US and it includes sharks, turtles, dolphins, and even whales! Beyond this unacceptable number of unintended catch, is the shocking way in which the bycatch is treated. “What does it look like? It looks like dolphins being cast back into the ocean dead. Sharks getting their fins cut off and thrown back into the ocean - alive. It means turtles and sunfish, rays, and leopard sharks all being slaughtered and wasted. This is one of the most destructive fisheries in the world and it is happening right here in #California .

If you haven’t signed this petition yet please do...link on this page 👉🏽 @paulnicklen #repost ・・・ Myself, SeaLegacy, and our coalition partners are incredibly grateful for the tremendous support we have seen with the #BanDeathNets campaign. The 112 thousand signatures we have collected thus far will serve as an invaluable tool to drive change in this destructive fishery. Although we have more than doubled our goal of 50 thousand signatures, this campaign is far from over. We must continue fighting for our oceans every day. There is still time to add your signature to this cause. Please follow the link in my bio, add your voice. Let's end this fishery once and for all.

This tragedy happens in California. Watching it just breaks my heart. I don't understand why would humans do such selfish thing. Shark,dolphin, swordfish hunting is already a problem and now they put this harmful net that literally kills any creature that try to pass through it. @sea_legacy currently putting up a petition to stop it. The link is in my bio if any of you are interested. #TurningTheTide #BanDeathNets

Repost from @discoversharks - Words by @sea_legacy 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 @sea_legacy ’s bio to stand up with SeaLegacy to end this practice and continue helping us in #TurningTheTide .

Turtles deserve attention every day of the week, but we have to give them extra love on #turtletuesday 🐢
#Repost @sea_legacy ・・・ Photos by @shawnheinrichs // Did you know that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish? We all have to come together and put and end to the great use of plastic in our daily lives. All our groceries wrapped in it, all the plastic bottles, your used toothbrush, your razor even the container for your daily contacts come in. We need to find more sustainable solutions. And in the meantime please remember to recycle♻️ Sometimes your trash can be taken apart so that plastic goes to plastic metal to metal and etc. every step counts💚🌍#turningthetide #sustainablefuture #recycle #lessplastic #noplastic #plasticinouroceans #oceanlove #stingray #conservation #environmentalist #biology #nature #naturelover #blueocean #traveltheworld #planetearth #makeachange #babysteps #sustainableenergy #greenfuture #healthyliving #vegetarian #vegan #eatlessmeat #savewater #together
