Have you ever heard of a tree kangaroo? This is one of many species that call West Papua home. The region is not only rich in natural resources, it is also blessed with extraordinary social and cultural wealth. However, the implementation of development in West Papua faces many challenges, threatening the sustainability of natural resources, both on land and in the water. It is necessary that we do everything we can to ensure that these natural and socio-cultural resources will be protected and conserved for future generations. #ProvinciKonservasi is an opportunity to establish a new paradigm of sustainable development; a policy path that aims to balance opportunities and reduce risks. Follow our friend @shawnheinrichs and the @bluespherefoundation team as they travel throughout the region to ensure local support for the law. ✊🏽🇮🇩💙 #protectwestpapua #papuabarat #turningthetide #indonesianoceanpride @oceanicpreservationsociety @sea_legacy @conservationid @conservationorg @indonesianoceanpride
Birds flying high above a bait ball, dive down, and then swim underwater just to catch a fish for a meal. Many of them have families to bring food back to and some are fishing for their own survival. Each one such a spectacle to see as the waves splash over, and they crash into the ocean. Each dive must be precise and strategic. 📷 : @karimiliya
As I get ready to fly back to Hong Kong I look back to all the experiences I had in the last month and the people that I share them with. From genetic capacity building workshops in Peru with @oceana_peru and @jessie_q_89 to an incredible expedition to Seaflower with @armadacolombia @gobernacionsai @fundacioncolombiaazul @gclementi @ryan_kilo @peclabfiu I spend a lot of time surrounded by shark fins in a small lab and being able to combine laboratory and field work has always been a dream of mine. Everything I lived this passed month reminded me the importance of the work we are doing and why all the struggles and sacrifices are worth it! I just want to thank everyone that has supported me and joined me in this crazy ride! #keepitup #hardworkpaysoffs #turningthetide #sharkresearch #colombia #seaflower #sharkconservation #paradise
These places feel magical, unearth like, but as unreal as it seems, it is very much a part of the ocean. Tucked away in a cave that a few have the splendor of seeing. Its hard to even imagine the full scale of grandeur places like this hold. Places like these are more reasons to protect the ocean, clean up plastics, advocate for sea creatures to name just a few. If we don’t speak up and fight for these beautiful places and protecting the waters who will? The ocean has become very much another home for me, and where my of my heart and passion have been since I was a child. I would like to think we all want people in future generations, to be able to experience the connection and greatness that the oceans share with us today. 📷 : @karimiliya
“Provinsi Konservasi” is unquestionably the most important film and campaign we’ve ever done for conservation in Indonesia. This effort MUST succeed - this is perhaps the last best chance on our planet to “get it right” when development comes to a high biodiversity wilderness area like West Papua. Thank you to everyone who has supported this important project. 🙏💙 Tonight is show number 5 of 6 in Fakfak. Make sure you’re watching our founder @shawnheinrichs ’ story for updates! #provinsikonservasi #protectwestpapua #turningthetide @sea_legacy @conservationid @conservationorg @indonesianoceanpride

While diving in California, I took an example photograph of what healthy kelp looked like. This kelp was apart of a kelp forest. Kelp forests are some of the most essential homes for marine life. Home to a myriad of fish. These ranges of species that live here are the California Sheephead, Giant Sea Bass, Lingcod, dozens of species of rockfish, schools of herring, crustaceans like crabs and snails, isopods, along with large marine mammals such as the harbor seal and elephant seal. Hundreds of species of invertebrates make the kelp forests their home such as sea slugs. Home to so many, yet kelp forests are slowing whipping off the face of the Earth. For example, rising sea temperatures along the coast of Australia have wiped out more than 60 miles of kelp forest! . . . . It is important that we counter global warming and pollution and seek ways to do this in our everyday lives. Whether its eating less meat or using less single-use plastics, there are many ways to help in some sort of way! You're not just 'one person', you make a difference whether you think so or not.🌿🐟🦈 - @chandlerrincon
Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // I, along with my team at @sea_legacy , are working with @raincoastconservation to permanently end commercial trophy hunting of all large carnivores on the coast of British Columbia. The Raincoast Conservation Foundation is raising $500,000 to acquire a fourth commercial hunting licence covering 2,300 square kilometers in the heart of the British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest. Securing the Nadeea tenure will permanently end commercial trophy hunting of grizzlies, black bears (some of which carry the Spirit bear producing gene), wolves, cougars and wolverines in some of the region’s most spectacular watersheds. The donated prints, of which this is one, will be exhibited at the Audain Art Museum (dates TBA), the Karen Cooper Gallery, October 23 - 30, and The Robert Bateman Centre, November 22 - 30. Photo: A lone rain wolf patiently awaits the dawn’s low tide.  British Columbia’s coastal wolves are distinct, special, unlike any other wolf on this planet. Wolves have a strong emotional connection to their pack-mates and it has been shown that when a members of a pack dies, the other wolves mourn. The relationship between wolves and human has often been a tenuous one, with wolves bearing the brunt. These wolves are a critical link in the ecosystem that surrounds them. #TurningTheTide @aprilbencze , @tavishcampbell , @karencooperphoto , @colleengaraphoto , @bertiegregory , @melissagroo , @johnemarriott , @neileverosborne , @eric_sambol_photography

Like the pages of an exquisite book, this wall of ice in Antarctica opened to me, revealing a living timeline of our planet's climate and evolution. I feel privileged to be one of the few who have been invited to explore the Earth's southern polar seas, to document the depths of their biodiversity and beauty, which exist far from civilization and most people's consciousness. Though out of sight and mind, the Antarctic environment plays a vital role in sustaining the balance of the planet’s ecological integrity and is in need of our help to protect it. This week, I'm excited to share my most recent work from Antarctica with you in @NatGeo ’s November issue. Don't miss our story about the rapidly changing Antarctic and #Follow @Sea_legacy as we launch an additional initiative to inspire people to care and act for this frozen paradise. With @paulnicklen , @andy_mann@craigwelch  and @ladzinski.
While we tend to see ice as a chunk of frozen water, Antarctic species like these Adelie penguins see it as habitat and a refuge from predators. Here, under the ice, they feed on krill, tiny shrimp-like crustaceans that form the bulk of their diet. Ice like this is essential to their survival - and it's disappearing quickly, as temperatures are rising faster at the poles than elsewhere on the planet. For decades, I've been photographing the wild spaces and species of Antarctica. Now, I'm excited to share my latest work exploring the rapidly changing environment of the Antarctic Peninsula in @NatGeo magazine’s November issue, available this week. Don't miss your chance to explore the depths of this polar region with me, and follow us @Sea_Legacy to learn how we're continuing our work to protect this fragile ecosystem. With @cristinamittermeier , @andy_mann@craigwelch  and @ladzinski.

(English down) Ich möchte einmal danke sagen und mir viel kein besseres Bild dazu ein wie dieser Screenshot aus einem bislang unveröffentlichen Video von mir mit einer wunderschönen neugierigen Küstenwölfin die sich auf drei Meter genähert hat!!! Das war die tollste Begegnung mit einem wilden Tier die ich je hatte und ich bin sehr froh das ich sie jetzt mit euch Teilen kann!!! Danke an euch alle die mich unterstützen, die mich motivieren, die Tag für Tag meine Arbeit verfolgen, die mir schreiben und meine Bilder liken und kommentieren. Alle die zu meinen Vorträgen kommen und allen die mir geholfen haben dieses Jahr im Frühjahr den Travel Photographer of the Year Peoples Choice Award von National Geographic zu gewinnen! Das wart ihr!! Ich verdanke euch, meiner Community so viel, mittlerweile folgen mir über 10.000 Personen auf Social Media, wie geil ist das denn bitte? Ich hoffe in den nächsten Jahren werdet ihr mich weiterhin begleiten und unterstützen, ich weiß nicht was die Zukunft bringt, und persönlich möchte ich das auch garnicht wissen, denn ich versuche für den Moment zu leben um täglich Menschen für die Natur zu begeistern und dazu zu inspirieren, sie mehr und mehr zu beschützen. . I would like to say thank you and I do not think much of a better picture like this screenshot from a hitherto unpublished video of me with a beautiful curious coastal wolf who has approached on three meters (10 feed)! That was the most amazing encounter with a wild animal I've ever had and I'm very glad that I can share it with you now !!! Thanks to all of you who support me, who motivate me, who follow my work day after day, who write to me, like and comment on my pictures. Everyone who comes to my presentations and those who helped me win National Geographic's Travel Photographer of the Year Peoples Choice Award this year! That was you!! I owe you, my community so much, now follow me over 10,000 people on social media, how cool is that? I hope in the next few years you will continue to accompany and support me, I do not know what the future holds, and personally I do not want to know that at all, because I try to live for the moment to inspire people everyday for nature!!
When you crack a shitty joke and it totally backfires..... #badjokes #humor #wildlifephotography #lions #hwange #zimbabwe #bigcat
The WC continues! It took a few days to set things up, to adjust the winch systems, to assemble and train in a refreshed safety team, to work out other issues... But in the end, CMAS tried hard to put things together and make the best out of a bad situation, and after having that done, I think we had a great wc in amazing conditions. My first dive was CNF - no fins, most demanding discipline in all aspects and most stressful for the lungs/throat but I enjoy it so much. I finally came early enough to dress up and prepare for my dive so I felt more relaxed then days before. I announced a PB at -70 m. Approaching the line @johnnydeep110 meets me as the new chief of safety, cracks a joke, asks me where I would prefer the first safety, hands me the line and wishes a good dive. This kind of atmosphere, confidence and information you need from a safety diver, and since he is a master at safety and diving, he understands this, and this makes dives much more enjoyable. I like to know when they meet me because sometimes its hard to know your depth, when to release air etc. The weather is perfect and I cant wait to hear my top time, and when its like this I know my dive is going to be amazing. I easily reach my tag, have fun with the safety team on the way up and glide all the way to the judges platform. I cant wait for my lungs to adapt a bit more so I can make deeper CNF dives... CNF and DNF are like meditation for me, even though its quite more demanding then diving with fins... This dive gets me to 5. place overall and my main goal at being in top 6 is checked after the first dive. Congrats to all athletes sharing the line with me on that day:) Now to see what happens with other dives in the championship. . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear #apneaaddicts #underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea #freedive #molchanovs #freedivingphotography #deeperblue #uwphotography @diveeasy #deepbluesea #underwaterphotography #oceanlife #oceanfun #oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives #oceanimagery #freedivingart #MadeOfOcean #freediverlife #xpncroatia #TurningTheTide #saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Giant Schools of Jack 🐟 at Cabo Pulmo National Park . Of a 50 minute dive this was the only moment me and @hk.underwater came into each others view 👀 as the huge schools of Jack passed overhead. These schools are thick and condensed, impossible to see through to the other side, it blacks out as they pass overhead, and you can lose your way being caught in the middle of the mass .

Photograph by @Jim_Abernethy // The West Indian manatees, also known as sea cows, are peaceful and adorable creatures that are usually found in shallow tropical waters, feeding on aquatic plants. Manatees can grow to be 10 feet long and can weigh as much as 1,200 pounds. Despite their large size, they are very agile in the water and communicate with touch and vocalizations. Manatees are listed as "vulnerable" on the #IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Since its beginnings in October of 2017, Florida's red tide is showing no signs of lifting and has expanded its range all the way up to the panhandle of Florida. The number of manatee deaths in Florida this year has already surpassed the total number of manatee deaths for all of 2017 and while not all of these deaths can be blamed on the red tide, the level of carnage is astounding and concerning. Please help me address red tide issues by signing and sharing the petition in the link in my bio at @Jim_Abernethy and remember to vote for the environment!
When you first think of humpback whales, you mostly think how big in size they are. They are very large, but they also have this amazing control over their fins. They can turn on a dime, maneuvers in twists and turns that you would not believe except to see it. All the while being some of the most graceful animals I have been able to encounter. Each part as beautiful as the next. 📷 by me.

Not only does sea ice provide a summer sunbathing site for these crabeater seals, but it also provides nesting and foraging areas for penguins and seals. It is also home to the algae that draws massive underwater clouds of shrimp-like krill, the chief source of food for many penguins, seals, and even whales. As the world's climate warms, the type and volume of ice is changing and threatening to upend one of the world's most bountiful marine systems.

"So where's home for you?"🍁💕 . Taken on the way to Hot springs from Tofino a couple of weeks ago. . It's never been so weird to leave BC. It never felt so wrong to go to the states. This was home for over 4 months and I'm already counting the time to when I get back. But I'm also looking forward to spend a couple of days at the beautiful coast of Washington and Oregon and finally meet my friends in Cali.

The largest brain in the world belongs to the sperm whale. Weighing some 9,000 grams, it is six to seven times larger than the human brain. The second largest brain in the world is the killer whale (or orca) at 6,000 grams. Elephants have extremely large brains as well. The next largest brain among the cetaceans is the bottlenosed dolphin at 1,500 grams, followed by human brains at approximately 1,200 grams. The cerebellum in a cetacean brain has more convolutions than in other mammals.  According to researchers, this indicates an unusually high level of intelligence. The brain surface area of a bottlenose dolphin is more than 1,400 square centimeters larger than a human being’s. Strong connections between the sensorial and motive areas of a dolphin’s brain to the body indicate that it is very much sensitive to pain and stress. 📸 #juanoliphant
