The best thing about working in the Arctic is spending time with the wildlife. Harp seals, polar bears, beluga whales and narwhals. It is not only a remarkable ecosystem, it's health is imperative to the health of the whole planet. See what we are doing at @sea_legacy onky bio toto find out how you can help make that happen.

A humpback hangs its tail high in the air, using gravity to help propel its 50,000 pound body back into the depths around Antarctica to feed on the rich density of krill below. The sea around the Antarctic Peninsula is a magical, fragile place; rich with wildlife. It is my favorite place on this planet and it is finally time to protect it.

Oh Canada! What an honor it is to be part of promoting ocean protection here in my adoptive country. Blessed with the largest coastline in the world and beaches on three oceans, we also have the largest responsibility. On track to protect 10 percent by 2020, Canada will have to create more marine protected areas in the next four years than it has in its entire history.....and it is determined to do it. I hope that portions of the #salishsea, where I photographed this egg yolk jellyfish are among them.

Repost from @cristinamittermeier @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost The lives of coastal people depend on a healthy ocean. Fishermen around the world, like these sailors from Kanyakumari departing port at first light in the southern tip of India, set their sails and go out to sea every day in hopes of bringing back some catch for the day. How we manage coastal resources, especially in places like India, a country with very little scientific data on their fish populations, will determine the fate of millions of fishing communities around the world.

I am heading to Spain this week, where I will be photographing coastal communities and fishermen who have been doing this for hundreds of years. I want to know what the secret to sustainable fisheries is.

We watched for a couple of hours as this polar bear patiently laid on its belly, waiting for a seal to pop up from a hole in the ice. He eventually fell sleep and we moved on.

A silver stream flows through the belly of this massive #iceberg❄. As a faint opalescent moon πŸŒ™ heralds twilight, we marvel on the intricate designs that the tides, the wind, and the #sea 🌊have carved on this piece of #ice. We could tell you a thousand reasons why healthy ice in #AntarcticaπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά is important but sometimes, you just have to marvel at the #beauty of #nature and be grateful that it still exists on our 🌍.
