Charles Darwin called marine iguanas 'Imps of Darkness' and was not a fan. He also referred to them 'disgusting and clumsy' lizards. I think he was wrong and I became completely smitten with these underwater algae munching Godzilla impersonators. They quickly became my favorite underwater photo subject. Dependent on cold water marine algae, increases in sea temperature have detrimental effects on marine iguana populations. If temperatures continuo to warm these Galapagos icons could become the first to disappear. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for a forthcoming story on Climate Change and the Galápagos Islands.

According to the WDC, Orcas worldwide face a number of threats in all regions of the world. Prey depletion, biocontamination, increasing ship traffic, harassment, conflict with fisheries, habitat loss, risk of oil spills, and noise pollution are problems for many orca populations. Historically, populations in the Pacific Northwest and North Atlantic were targeted for live captures to be sold in oceanariums. Orcas in the Pacific waters off Russia are still being captured and sold into captivity. They have never come close to regaining their pre-capture numbers. #behindthescenes of our #orca #conservation #inspired #photoshoot with the #amazing @mertailor For @projectmermaids #saveourbeach photography / video by @angelinaventurellaphoto tail by @mertailor #makeachange #beaware #oceanconservation #youcanmakeadifference #oceanlove #SaveTheEarth #savethewhales #wanderlust #whaletail #whalewatching #captivity #wildlife #free #wild

A mother is clothed with strength and dignity, laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks her words are wise and she gives instructions with kindness.

The juvenile chum salmon are thick along the shores of the hood canal and the estuaries are teeming with life. We are lucky to be out there witnessing these wild salmon migrating along our shores. #fishing #pugetsound #chum #hoodcanal #conservation #outdoors #wildlife

Great to at least have an exposure to an inspiring Pinoy & environmentalist-at-heart scientist, Dr. Jones. He specializes on lacewings. And a part of his studies or interest makes me feel more excited and inclined in doing much work onto our environment. #conservation #futurescientists #environment

This little cutie is recovering after a rough week! He was found severely tangled in fishing netting in Squamish, BC. Picked up by the Conservation Officer Service, he was transferred into the care of @wildliferescuebc who removed the netting and cleaned his injuries. He was then transferred to us for long term care.
The netting caused deep wounds under 3 of his legs, which require daily cleaning. We are also applying honey to the affected areas daily. (Honey is an amazing natural treatment which keeps wounds clean and helps tissue recover)
With the daily wound care, a course of antibiotics and pain mediation we are confident he will make a full recovery! #crittercaresaveswildlife #youcanhelp #donate #wildliferescue #skunk #longweek #conservation #tangled #fishingnet #littlestinker #honey #longroadahead #hewillrecover #wildlife #skunksofinstagram #cosbc
