Killer whales are known for their complex social structures. Living in groups of related females (headed by the oldest female), their groups are known as pods. A pod can have as few as three members to as many as a hundred or more, all while consisting of as many as five generations of killer whales — the youngest ones, their mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers and finally their great-great-grandmothers. Members of a pod travel, hunt and sleep together. They communicate with each other and help each other out in times of trouble and are known for being the most complex and intriguing hierarchies known to man. 🐳🌏 #TurningTheTide #Orcas #KillerWhale #Pod #Social

6 days til @sharkweek can't wait! I would love to be one of those divers... Wish NY waters weren't so dark, the visibility turned me off from diving. I have to renew my certification , yet I will have to wait for a tropical getaway #padi #padidiver #4diveslogged #oneday #sharkdive @jim_abernethy ・・・ Repost from @sharkweek “For the first few years after purchasing our shark expedition vessel "Shear Water," I traveled all over the Bahamas exploring the "shark infested" waters. I would stay in an area for a day at a time, baiting the water to see which, and how many, sharks would appear. Back then all the shark books claimed Tiger sharks were only found in deep water and rare in the Bahamas. One day I was preparing to cross the Gulf Stream, back to Florida, when I stopped on the shallow waters of the west side of the Little Bahama Bank to prepare the boat for rough conditions. Within just 1 hour, we had 6 very large tiger sharks around us - much more than I had ever seen anywhere else! After this, I named the place "Tiger Beach." I called it Tiger Beach, because I knew in my heart that eventually the shark-fin fisherman would come looking for tiger beach and I hoped they would look near land! Tiger Beach is actually roughly 25 miles from any beach. It soon became the best place in the world to see these beautiful animals up close for extended periods of time because of the crystal clear water and shallow depth. On my very best day there, we had 22 Tiger Sharks with 80 lemon sharks! This was the first of many Tiger shark related discoveries to come my way. Stay tuned for my next post about the affectionate side of sharks.” 📸 & 🦈caption by Jim Abernethy (@jim_abernethy) . . . . #savesharks #finbannow #finfree #bethechangetheworldneeds #ilovesharks #bethevoice #racingextinction #turningthetide #sharkweek #worthmorealive #sharkweek #bahamas #tigerbeach #sharkweektakeover #sharkseason

I took these videos last May (2017) whale-watching in Iceland. Needless to say, it was a breathtaking experience, as was exploring the whole of that magnificent country. You may have heard of the recent appalling sanction by the Iceland govt. to permit hunting of hundreds of endangered fin whales. In a country that profits so much from environmental tourism, especially as a premier whale-watching destination, this decision is totally nonsensical. When was the last time any of us actively sought or saw whale meat on a menu? Please go to the link on my profile for more info. Repost, tweet, anything to help raise awareness. For it is not just whales we are trying to protect in the end. @sea_legacy @seashepherd @bluespherefoundation @oceanicpreservationsociety @cristinamittermeier @paulnicklen #StopIcelandWhaling #TurningTheTide

🌊The next @sirenartsap/@transformerdc Turning the Tide performance is this Thursday, July 19! Join us at 7:30PM at the 2nd Avenue Beach in Asbury Park for Stephanie Mercedes: Contrapposto​. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Through poetry, repurposed materials, and using the “sail” as metaphor this live public performance will reflect on the future and history of New Jersey's waterways and beaches. Plastic trash bags collected from Asbury Park beach will be re-purposed into large-scale sails. The performance will reflect on the need for environmental sustainability, as re-cycled materials, performers and land blend together into a work of live art that equally balances the natural world and human intervention. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stephanie Mercedes is an Argentinian/American artist, who through live art, installation and photography attempts to transcend trauma, revealing missing violent histories and creating space for reconciliation. Mercedes is a Halcyon Arts Lab Fellow, was a 2017 Artist in Residence at the Bronx Museum, and a 2016 Art and Law Fellow. Mercedes has been funded by Open Society Foundation and Light Works. She lives, works and performs across the Americas. ​@floresparatrump ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #monmoutharts #asburyparknj #performanceart #sirenarts @cleanh2oaction @plasticpollutes #asburyparkart #turningthetide

Mondays are for the Birds and this Monday's bird is the King Penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus)! The King Penguin is the second largest species of penguin (the Emperor is the largest). King Penguins can get up to about 40 inches (70 to 100cm) tall and they weigh between 25 and 35 lbs (11 to 16 kg). King penguins eat small fish, mainly lanternfish and squid. On foraging trips they repeatedly dive to over 330 feet (100 metres), and have been recorded at depths greater than 980 feet (300 metres). I took this photo in October of 2014 on South Georgia Island. I love the detail in this photo, especially in the yellow breast feathers. I also feel like the completely white backdrop in this photo helps it to convey a sense of isolation that is reflective of what life must be like in such a remote and unforgiving part of the planet. If you enjoy this photo, please "like," "comment," and/or "follow" me on Instagram! #nikon #nature #nature_photography #wildlife #wildlife_photography #penguin #birdsofinstagram #penguinsofinstagram #sea_legacy #turningthetide #oceanconservation #oceanconservancy #saveourplanet #saveouroceans #natgeo #loves_antarctica #southgeorgia #king #yourshotphotographer #topshot #picoftheday #photooftheday #bestnaturephotography #bethechange #antarctica

What is Lost and Found on the Fraser River // Part 3 of 9 // For a moment I breathe in the quiet. Is this what it feels like to be a fish? To float freely in the shelter of the eelgrass beds, warm in the sand flats and salt marsh? I’m jarred from my reverie as the boat tips. The scientists disembark, preparing for the morning’s work of catching, counting, and measuring. Raincoast Conservation Foundation wants to know who is where, when—which different species of salmon come down from the headwaters, what parts of the estuary are they using more, how long they stay, where they go, why? Their interest is not only in the fish. Salmon move through the whole ecosystem. Birds and bear feed on them; their bodies fertilize the forests. And we’re losing them. We’re losing them. Lia is obscured by tall reeds as she records conditions. Misty starts the engine and drives the boat just far enough to drag the seining net across to the opposite bank where Dave and Charlie are primed, ready to haul. Their motions are clean and quick; muscles strain against the mud and the current. Something gets stuck and Misty moves across the stern of the boat with implausible stealth for one clad in weighted rubber. Time is of the essence—specimens will be lost if the net lags, if it is not drawn up within seconds. Mike and I, we are oddly in the middle, observers and participants both—Lia calls out numbers (net in time, net out time, etc.) that I write on a clipboard chart; Mike sloshes to capture the action on film, swings his camera aside to help haul. We look on as the scientists take stock of their inventory. Small crustaceans, minute marine life. And there it is. A tiny glistening, no more than two inches—a Chinook? A chum? “What’s the body shape?” “Look at his parr marks.” “There, on the right side?” “No adipose.” “It’s June.” “He’s really little.” “His head, it’s pretty chummy.” A chum. It is determined. We move through the channel and repeat. Once. Twice. Three times more until the tide turns out of our favor. Images by Michael O. Snyder (follow @michaelosnyder) Words by Courtney Sexton (follow @clsexton) In 2016, I traveled with environmental journalist Courtney Sexton @c

Total of 215 metric tons of trash was collected by the BMC from across the beaches of Mumbai at Dadar, Mahim, Versova, Marine Drive and Gorai, following the season's highest tide (4.97 metres) on Sunday. The trash was washed ashore by the sea that witnessed the tide at 1.49 pm. . . 📸 @_ragulkrishnan_ . . . . . . #TheWeatherChannel #Mumbai #MumbaiRains #MarineDrive #HighTide #Beaches #TonsOfTrash #MumbaiBeaches #BMC #mumbaihightide #Pollution #Indian #Earth #OceanLiving #ChangingOcean #PhotoJournalism #Outdoors #Heartbreaking #TurningTheTide #NatureStrikesBack #ClimateChange #CityScape

Great information with a spectacular pic from Elizabeth Munsey @munsea_inspired - Taken while out on a pelagic shark dive with #oneoceandiving . “Large ‘apex’ predators influence ecosystems in profound ways, by limiting the density of their prey and controlling smaller ‘mesopredators’. The loss of apex predators from much of their range has lead to a global outbreak of mesopredators, a process known as ‘mesopredator release’ that increases predation pressure and diminishes biodiversity” (Oikos Journal). . In other words, sharks are essential! In order to maintain a healthy and biodiverse ocean the rate at which sharks are killed must come to a halt. It is estimated that 2-3 sharks are killed every second, almost 12,000 an hour, 100 million + slaughtered every year! For perspective, in comparison, according to #natgeo only 12 humans have been killed world wide since 2011!!! Regardless, if these shocking figures remain the norm a large number of shark species, if they aren’t threatened already, will be threatened by extinction within the next 100 years! . With that said, the solution is where our efforts should be focused! We are working to raise awareness and every additional voice that speaks up does in fact make a difference. Speak up about overfishing, drift nets, sharkfin soup, killing for sport, and inhuman killing in general! We cannot remove a species from an ecosystem and still expect the ocean to thrive! A healthy future starts now! . #sharkdiving #helpsavesharks #startnow #sharksarefriends #coexist #oceaneducation #oceanconservation #awareness #savesharks #respectouroceans #sharkeducation #speakforthosewhocant #saveourseas #protectouroceans #northshore #oahu #waterinspired #turningthetide #apexpredatornotmonster #oceanphotography #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeoinspires #oneoceandiving #letsrally

#Repost @discoverychannel with @get_repost ・・・ “This photo is from my @sharkweek takeover! My relationship with Emma the Tiger shark started nearly 2 decades ago when I first saw her swim into our view at #TigerBeach! For those who don't know her yet, she's HUGE - 15 feet long to be exact! Over the last 20 years, I have been rubbing her head every time she approaches me and have removed 4 hooks from her, simply using affection without taking her out of the water. This lovely lady holds a very special place in my heart! I have seen her through 7 pregnancies, with another one on the way! No matter where I travel near Tiger Beach, I can usually find her hanging out beneath my boat. Despite her impressive and somewhat scary appearance, she is truly a gentle giant that I have been so fortunate to have as my friend all these years. Encounters with her leave me speechless and inspire me to do all I can to save my true friends in the sea!” 🦈 📸 by @jim_abernethy . . . . #sharkawarenessday #savesharks #finbannow #finfree #bethechangetheworldneeds #ilovesharks #bethevoice #racingextinction #turningthetide #sharkweek #worthmorealive #sharkweek #bahamas #tigerbeach #sharkweektakeover #sharkseason

Hunt for the shag rug nudibranch. Had a fun time hanging out with these kids at the #kejimkujik #BioBlitz last week. It's amazing what you can find in a tide pool. Top of the list for me was a small sea slug that has the appearance of a shag rug and eats the stinging tentacles of sea anemones. Doesn’t get much cooler than that folks. Shot on assignment for @seabluecanada in Port Joli, Nova Scotia; we're shining a light on some of the most important marine areas of Atlantic Canada. Follow along and lets explore the East coast. Big thanks to @harrisonlewiscentre for hosting me. @sea_legacy #TurningTheTide with @ecologyaction @davidsuzukifdn @cpaws_national @cpawsnovascotia @ilcp_photographers

Regrann from @bluespherefoundation - Whaling is an archaic and outdated practice. Take action - link in our bio. ☝️🐳 #StopIcelandWhaling #FanArtFriday #TurningTheTide #Repost @styngvi ・・・ The slaughter of fin whales in Iceland goes on. Over 20 whales have now been harpooned and killed for their flesh. 😞 ▪️ These peaceful, gentle giants are being brutally killed for a dying whale meat industry. Whales are both sentient and sapient individuals, as well as mammals just like us. They carry their young for 11 months and nurse them for 6-7 months. They deserve better than this. 💔 Whales are so much more valuable to us in the ocean rather than on our plates. ▪️ Please take two minutes out of your day to sign a petition to stop commercial whaling in Iceland. You can find the link in my bio. 🐋💙 - #regrann
