A little different take on a common Bahamian seascape. A Healthy Caribbean Reef Shark over a flat sandy bottom. It never gets old for me. One of my favorite places to go diving and spend time with my finned friends. @sea_legacy @3stringsproductions

@ethan_pringle rappels down the upper pitches of our newly established bigwall rock climb in southeast Greenland. This was around midnight after a massive 4 week effort to get to this point. There is no greater feeling than rapping 2000 feet of vertical granite with your best friends after giving your best and finally succeeding. The weight of relief feels like a feather compared to that of the unknown. Thanks @mikelibecki for bringing us here and @ethan_pringle for gunning us up this thing! @ladzinski @connor_seybert @dell @mountainhardwear #dellrugged @3stringsproductions @roam

Photo by: John and Jane Doe. // This is what happens to farmed fish in open-net ocean pens. This situation is extremely harmful for the fish, bad for the surrounding environment and probably not something you’d want eat if you saw it at a fish market. It’s time to get the open net fish farms out of British Columbia waters. Further more, they are operating on First Nation land without permission. Just thought you’d hate to see this photo but appreciate the information. I’m standing with my friends @sea_legacy @paulnicklen @cristinamittermeier who are up there right now. Follow the link in @sea_legacy bio to add your voice. // UPDATE: This of course depends on the particular farm, the majority of farmed salmon aren't deformed like this and since the fish are in cages and not exposed to predators, the weaklings, which would normally be eaten in the wild, are able to survive. The fact remains, Aquaculture has incredible potential for both good and bad, has a long way to go and should not be happening on First Nation land. (Thanks for the info Tina Oldham)

When @paulnicklen has idea he becomes completely consumed with it. So, after he spotted a beautiful large sponge on the sunset dive, he came up to the surface, gathered the team and explained his idea, which was basically: "We come back after dark, before the storm hits and follow me to 100 feet. We'll light the sponge from above, simulating the moon and wait for sharks and groupers to come in." 👌🏼 Obviously we were all-in and didn't have to wait long as sharks arrived upon entry. The 20 minutes that proceeded was a beautifully lit show of how a healthy Caribbean reef looks at night. The memory is still more like a dream and a reality. I can't wait to see his footage. Enjoy this short behind-the-scenes clip. Thanks for the vision Paul and for the experience! #teamwork #turningthetide with @sea_legacy @cristinamittermeier @paulnicklen @iankellett_story @mdalio @samkretch / music @davisharwellmusic

@paulnicklen returning to the surface after a deep canyon dive off the banks of Jardines de la Reina. It's always a good sign when you’re surfacing through a healthy population of silky sharks. From top to bottom, these are some of the richest waters in all of the Caribbean and a shining example of conservation. #turningthetide with @paulnicklen @cristinamittermeier @iankellett_story @samkretch @mdalio // Shot on @sonyalpha #A9 #alphacollective @roam

The sperm whale is the largest toothed predator on Earth, rich in lore and history. I had hoped to film these gentle giants on a recent marine expedition to the Azores, a Portuguese archipelago made up of nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. After an exhausting afternoon working in rough seas with poor visibility, I finally slipped in and drifted with the current into a large pod of calves socializing on the surface. Within minutes, several large adults rose from the depths and circled me. Moments later they effortlessly disappeared back into the deep. With @thejoelepore @waittfoundation

🎥🔊: @paulnicklen getting up close and personal with a large American Crocodile during a sunset thunderstorm in Gardens of the Queen, Cuba. Paul and I worked together to capture this unique perspective in the mangroves until well after dark. Pushing our creative boundaries through lighting, floating 30 pound @reddigitalcinema cameras at split level & choosing difficult working conditions all paid off in these unforgettable scenes. Team work makes the dream work, they say, and I'm lucky to be surrounded with passionate filmmakers and photographers @sea_legacy who raise each other up and work tirelessly to create stories with impact. #Turningthetide with @cristinamittermeier, @paulnicklen @samkretch, @mdalio and @iankellett_story

@cristinamittermeier working the beautiful sunset light with Silky Sharks in Jardines De La Reina, Cuba. Cristina is one of the hardest working and talented artists out there and it was so much fun being her dive buddy this trip. If you want intimate images that have impact, you need to get in there, day after day after day. Watch this and you'll see what I mean. I'm lucky to be part of such a talented and passionate team at @sea_legacy, #turningthetide with @cristinamittermeier @paulnicklen @samkretch @iankellett_story and @mdalio working to shed light on the Caribbean's most pristine ecosystems. // Shot on @reddigitalcinema 8K // music by: @_electricmeadow_ @hawkfather

Thanks @cristinamittermeier for capturing this beautiful image of me working with the crocodiles down in Cuba. Unforgettable day! It was an honor to work with @sea_legacy over the last few weeks in Gardens of the Queen. I learned so much from @paulnicklen @cristinamittermeier @samkretch & @captik_iank. Proud to be on such an amazing team of storytellers. // Repost @sea_legacy ・・・
Photo: @cristinamittermeier, with @andy_mann / Supported by a bed of eelgrass, the very existence of which is a testimony to a healthy ecosystem, our first encounter in Jardines de la Reina -Gardens of the Queen, Cuba, was with this mighty crocodile. The crocs are abundant here, sheltering themselves in clusters of thriving mangroves.
Steeped in history that has both polarized and unified people all over the world, Cuba’s dedication to using science as a guiding principle in policy making is a shining example of conservation in action; one that other places in the world can learn and benefit from.
The Cuban government established a 367-square-mile marine preserve here in 1996, tightly restricting tourism and banning all fishing except for lobster, a crucial element in Cuba's economy.
Our visit comes less than a month after Hurricane Irma struck the Camaguey Archipelago as a category 5. While the Gardens of the Queen is unaffected by Irma’s wrath, Cuba’s marine science and conservation community was not. Jardines del Rey, or the Gardens of the King, was hit hard and two of Cuba’s most important marine research stations suffered extensive damage. With relations between the US and Cuba stabilizing and a potential tourism and development boom on the horizon, rebuilding is perhaps more crucial now than ever before. Cuba needs to maintain its 20-year history of exemplary marine conservation.

The wave has a mind of its own. One moment it's glass calm and the next it's a true sea monster. Never did it have a swell. It literally rose from the deep. I've never seen anything like it since. Taken in the Salvage Islands #onassignment for @natgeopristineseas.

A large Oceanic Whitetip Shark startles me off Cat Island, Bahamas. Shark eyelids serve to protect the eye in vulnerable situations. Some sharks have a nictating membrane, (seen here), or a clear membrane that covers the eye in when attaching prey. In this case, only a curious pass, but a good reminder to be aware of your surroundings when sharing the water with these magnificent animals. @sea_legacy @natgeo @moorecharitable

Freediver (@seabacon) shows how to properly redirect an incoming shark. With gloves on, he'll gently guide the nose of this Oceanic Whitetip to the right if she doesn't change course in time. Sharks are NOT senseless killers as they are often portrayed in the media. An interaction like this can have a lasting impact your life, fill you with joy and change the way you think about our oceans. @sea_legacy @moorecharitable @roam @sonyalpha #alphacollective
