The cape Dorid. One of my favorite sea creatures! Boasting bright beautiful colours, you will find this submerged slug nowhere outside of South African coastline.

Just breath and stay focused…there is no way in my head that no one could possibly not love a dolphin. They are incredibly inquisitive, and seem such fun. I love them and they are part of my underwater world that I want to share with you. Love them and protect them and their world. @ladymusgraveexperience @sea_legacy @bluespherefoundation #canonaustralia #TurningTheTide #ocean #TourThePlanet #TravelQLD #thisisqueensland #visitbundaberg #lovebundy #northburnett #southerngreatbarrierreef #protectthereef #lovethereef #gbrmarinepark #queensland #greatbarrierreef #protectthereef #QldParks #australia #worthmorealive #ausgeo #discoverqueensland #exploringaustralia #emptythetanks #stopthehunt

If it wasn’t for the First Nation communities of The Pacific Northwest, who knows what would be of the coastal wilderness. It would be riddled in pipelines, oil tankers would raid the waters and the Great Bear Rainforest would have kept its former name of ‘ The Central Coast Timber Supply Area’. The passion and dedication of the coastal people has helped protect these wild places, and will continue to protect them for years to come. . Kitasoo/Xai-Xais people: Giasixa!

Eyes open but void of life 🦈🖤 Instead of being angry and heartbroken, instead of judging, we must go deeper to understand why this exists, what drives it, and what help these communities need. It’s vital to create livelihood alternatives, making it more valuable for those with very little to keep sharks alive than to extract them. #turningthetide #savesharks #worthmorealive EDIT/UPDATE: After receiving a lot of messages about this photo, I want to give a bit more context. This is NOT a live shark. This pup never had a chance as it was pulled from the womb of a dead adult shark hauled in by fisherman. 😢 Remember: when the buying stops, the killing can too.

Seeing real progress to end the devastating depletion of marine life as by-catch from the driftnet commercial fishing industry in California was long overdue. With your help, Senate Bill 1017 overwhelmingly passed the State Assembly and now sits with Governor Brown who can sign SB 1017 into law by September 30th.

There is nothing more touching, more heart-opening in all the oceans, and perhaps in all nature, than to be graced by the presence and feel the love between a mother humpback whale and her calf. We must breath in that love and ignite it with passion to protect these gentle and vulnerable beings. Whales are under intense threat from ocean pollution, mercury contamination, ship strikes, naval sonar, and ‘scientific whaling’, which is bloodlust, ego and greed poorly disguised as research. Anyone who has the the incredible honor of connecting with these magnificent beings, would find these acts unconscionable. We must protect and cherish them. 🙏💙🐳 Video: @shawnheinrichs @reddigitalcinema #stopthehunt #worthmorealive #savethewhales #turningthetide #racingextinction

Beach cleanup number 5! Another sad surprise! I found a bottle from Malaysia in East Australia. When i got to Chance bay at the Whitsunday Island, i thought this was going to be the first beach I would find without plastic! I was wrong. So many plastic bottle caps! 😡😥 We picked up the plastic pollution while watching the turtles in the ocean and as we left the beach was #plasticfree 👏👏🤠👍 if you think we’re doing a good job we. Would love a small donation which will go towards @surfersagainstsewage. To donate follow the link in my profile #Ozbustplasticsquad

Wondering how brilliant bamboo is? A couple of days ago, on the 18th of September, it was World Bamboo Day. It’s a day specifically set aside to think about the ecological benefits of using bamboo products instead of your typical plastic or metal products. Bamboo is absolutely fantastic and has so many amazing uses! It is a rapidly growing plant, growing up to a metre a day! This means that it is completely renewable, whereas our other main resources like plastic made from fossil fuels, and steel aren’t renewable, they are actually being depleted. Since it is a rapidly growing plant, it can absorb large quantities of carbon dioxide, therefore acting as a carbon sink, rather than a source (like plastic or metal). You can buy so many different bamboo products now, but the photo shows my top 3 favourites... I absolutely adore my @soseasuk bamboo toothbrushes, which are potentially the best toothbrushes I have ever used! I love my bamboo watch which you can buy online @amazon , because it helps me create a statement about myself, in the sense that I am (trying my hardest to be) as eco-friendly and minimalist as possible. I also love my bamboo mug, which I carry with me at all times, and it feels and looks beautiful! Give bamboo a go, it’s brilliant 😆 together we can make a difference 🌿🌍 #turningthetide #veganlife #together #life #ecofriendly #eco #sustainableliving #sustainability #bamboo #bambootoothbrush #earth #noplastic #vegan #forests #ocean #plasticpollution #climatechange #plants #trees #globalwarming #doyourbit #love #nature #renewable #carbon #savetheworld #beautiful #wood

One of the many photogenic glaciers found in the Arctic with @Sea_Legacy. Every September, the Arctic ice pack reaches its minimum. This year’s sea ice extent is likely to be the 6th lowest in the 39-year satellite record (National Snow & Ice Data Center). I hope to re-visit this peaceful Arctic cove for decades to come with as little change to the glacial landscape as possible.

Molina - First Nations Salmon Farm Protestor - Courtenay, BC. - Legacy Part 02. - As you would expect, to talk with Molina and her mom is to get the salmon farming story from the protestors point of view. I will need to talk to people on the other side of the fence (net,) to get a more rounded picture. But what they had to say was fascinating none-the-less. - Two main points came across – they believe that the ecology of the area and the wellbeing of the First Nations people to be inseparable, and they see open pen salmon farming (the raising of salmon to maturity in pens sunk into the ocean,) as an abomination, a failed experiment that should have been done away with almost as soon as it began. - To learn more about fish farms and Molina’s story visit www.sealives.org/legacy2 #oceans #fishing . . . . . #ocean #oceanhealth #oceanconservation #conservation #marine #marinelife #marineconservation #saveouroceans #saveourseas #firstnations #courtenaybc #activists #activism #salmon #salmonfarming #bccoast #britishcolumbia #sealives #sealivesdotorg #sealivesinitiative #turningthetide #portrait #bwportrait #photojournalism #vancouverisland

Was a very very cold and windy day out whale watching past Golden Gate Bridge BUT saw several whales including a humpback coming up for a feed (too quick to get a shot). I never tire of seeing these majestic creatures and always find myself looking to book the next possible trip on any travel booked. Remember these creatures are not food, their waters need to be cared for. #turningthetide #paulnicklen #whales #whalewatching #sanfrancisco #goldengatebridge #wasfreezingoutthere #travels #travelpic #travelogram #travelphotography #travelsnap #travellergram #potd #nofilter #nature

The rough-legged buzzard (Buteo lagopus) is usually found in the arctic and subarctic regions, but migrates further south in winters! This one has been tagged for conservation tracking - notice the wings. Its feet are feathered to help with the cold conditions of the rough legged buzzards home range in the arctic. Taken with a @canoncanada 5D Mark IV + Canon 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens while out with my friend @roberthechler , who has a great combination of keen eyes and unbelievable good luck for bird spotting!

Arctic love with @melissa_schaefer 💙 Our book is finally ready this week. Over the next few months it goes through the hands of our publishers for some additional editing, and next September it is published. It’s been a long ride. For quite some time we’ve had all the pieces we need, but it wasn’t until recently that they fell into the right places to tell the story we want. On some of the pages you can almost smell the breath of the polar bear, on others hear the whistling north wind over the pack ice. It is our story about the Arctic. Born out of love. I am proud beyond words. And I can not wait for you all to see it. ••• If you buy two books this year though… get “Born to Ice” by @paulnicklen and “Amaze” by @cristinamittermeier . Both are incredible. Paul is my hero and I’ve always been a huge fan of Cristina. You find both books easily online.

It’s already a couple of month ago when we spend this amazing day at the #GreatBarrierReefeef in Oz 🐠 🐟 🐡 but it doesn’t look good. The diversity is huge, much bigger than expected, but the corals stocks that we could see in Ningaloo Reef where up to five metres big while they are almost tiny at the Great Barrier Reef. That’s because the last coral bleaching was just last year and another one just in 2016. A Reef needs about five years to recover. The corals are very young - while they could live for decades and longer! It doesn’t look healthy. Keep in mind: we took these videos at one of the most picturesque place at the Reef - the guides know the good spots. It’s not just climate change it’s also everything that ends up in the ocean: plastic, toxic sunscreen, pesticides, fertiliser and so much more that doesn’t belong anywhere else than the bin. The time for change is now. Corals aren’t plants, they are living animals like you and me. And we all depend on them. #savethereef #reef #adventure #travel #australia #fish #coral #savetheoceans #ocean #workingholiday #backpacking #dive #snorkeling #turningthetide #meerwasseraquarium #riff #koralle Literally: #breathtaking #gorpro #goproquik

Photo by @shawnheinrichs // Hauntingly beautiful, jellyfish once filled a specific niche in the oceans. Now, with severe overfishing of their predators, warming seas from climate change, and increased nutrients that feed jellyfish from run off, they are starting to dominate entire marine ecosystems. Their very success could ultimately cause the collapse of the ecosystems that they rely upon to survive. When we mess with nature in such a reckless manner, there are untold consequences that may last for generations to come and that are incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to reverse. We need to approach anything we do to our ecosystems with caution and respect, or we risk the very life support system of our planet. #turningthetide with @shawnheinrichs @bluespherefoundation @sea_legacy

It’s been over 4 years since manta rays became fully protected in Indonesia, making this country the largest manta sanctuary in the world. Since then many dedicated groups and individuals have been working hard every single day to ensure that this designation is more than just a sanctuary in name alone. Despite some heartbreaking setbacks, successful manta conservation wins are being achieved in Indonesia, resulting in positive and lasting change for manta rays, their habitat, and the local communities that live alongside them. There is rarely a quick fix in effective conservation, but we are dedicated to the long journey, and thank the others that are too.

#Repost @natgeo (@get_repost) ・・・ Photograph by @paulnicklen // A baby harp seal, just days old, patiently waits for its mom to return from the sea to provide life sustaining milk. Milk that is comprised of up to 50% fat. The math is simple, on cold years, sea ice reaches its maximum extent and there is maximum recruitment into the population and on warmer years, which has been the norm as of late, there can be zero recruitment into the population due to a lack of sea ice. The incredible thing is that we can control the fate of this species by regulating the carbon we release into the atmosphere. #followme on @paulnicklen to see what a baby harp looks like when it has had too much milk to drink. #turningthetide with @sea_legacy #seal #bethechange #gratitude #love #beauty #cute #instagood

I was freezing cold in the huts of the village of Half Dome (formerly Curry) in the Yosemite Valley with my father who was there for work, so I got up and walked the valley at 6 in the morning. There were many fires in the area and the valley was full of this thick smoke. I stopped at a turnout near Tunnel View and I took this picture: I really like the symmetry and the uniform nuances that smoke produces. 📷 by @bailyzindel ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪ followme 👉@borninwild ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪ use my hashtag #borninwild ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪ #Waterfall #Cliff #Wallpaper #arctic #turkey #svalbard #wild #turkiye #adventure #wildlife #adventuretravel #arktis #spitshade #greenland #natgeo #natgeowild #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #earthpix #earthfocus #wildlifeplanet #saveourseas #greenpeace #sealegacy #climatechange #oneplanet #turningthetide

Heats runs make it hard to hold your breath. It’s such an exciting moment that you don’t want to miss and all of your relaxing and meditation go out the window!

Well after training in Cavtat I had maybe a full day only to repack and get on a plane to Ibiza, where the first edition of Molchanova Grand Prix in freediving will take place. The competition is founded by @molchanovsfreediving and it hopes to become a tradition, and definitely will set some new standards in freediving. It's an honor for me to get invited to such an event, and join the worlds most elite divers like @alexeymolchanov @willtrubridge @alessia.zecchini @gorancolak @mirelakardasevic @aolin_wang @kostyshen (and many others) in training and competing and of course having fun in the waters of Ibiza.

This is always a very interesting place to dive on the reef. These little ocean valley’s are furrowed around the edges of the fringing reef and are always very intriguing with lots of life. Sometimes you swim up to them and there is a lazy grouper laying in wait for a quick meal. Turtles use them as a little hi-way but on this day it was a little a meeting place for a school of fish 🐠🐟🐡 @lady_musgrave_experience #TurningTheTide #TourThePlanet #TravelQLD #thisisqueensland #visitbundaberg #lovebundy #northburnett #southerngreatbarrierreef #protectthereef #lovethereef #gbrmarinepark #queensland #greatbarrierreef #protectthereef #QldParks #australia #ausgeo #discoverqueensland #exploringaustralia

Have you ever watched a documentary showing orcas hunt? It’s really impressive, how they coordinate their attacks and as a group chase their victims to tire them, knock down blocks of ice to reach sleeping seals, even drown much larger whales together.

Beach clean up number 5 - check the full video on my IGTV - #ozbustplasticsquad hits again! This time we hiked 45 minutes to Bolding Bay at the magnetic island and we found so much pollution! We were again motivated to get rid of it all and people were coming up to us and thanking us for what we were doing! I just hope people start using less plastic and become more aware of their actions! There has been a delay on me posting our beach cleanups because we’ve been travelling non stop! We are hoping to raise funds to support @surfersagainstsewage while travelling! We are hoping to get 500 pounds to support their work!!

A wild coastal wolf manoeuvres her way around heaps of plastic that intrude her home. These chunks of endless garbage, that pollute and kill, will outlive her, her pups and generations to come. It’s truly not that difficult to refuse single use plastics, and cut down on the amount of plastic used in your household, I promise you! You can choose to remove plastic in your home, but this wolf cannot. - - - #plasticfree #planetearth #ourdailyplanet #getoutthere #oceano #greatbearrainforest #naturelovers #natgeo #travelblog #conservation #explorebc #wildernessculture #wildlife #plastic #ecotourism #wolf #sealegacy #pacificwild #turningthetide #rainforest #pacificnorthwest #mothernature #nature #gooutside #environment #wolves #explorecanada #britishcolumbia #makethechange #climatechange
