Celebrating @cristinamittermeier , the first female photojournalist to reach 1M followers on Instagram. I deeply admire Cristina’s endless energy to work for environmental issues. Her tireless efforts and her generous support for others make this planet a better place to live. I know Cristina's beautiful work for a very long time and I remember first meeting her at the opening of Paul Nicklen’s gallery in New York City. I am truly honored and grateful to be able to collaborate with her on her book "Back from the Brink: 25 Successful Conservation Stories," where she featured one of my Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle photos from my sea turtle conservation project. . Recently, her new book ‘Amaze,’ was published with her breathtaking images. If you are looking for a holiday gift, I can’t imagine a better choice than this meaningful and important book. From ocean shores to some of the most remote indigenous communities in the world, photographer Cristina Mittermeier explores humanity’s relationship with the planet and possibilities for a mindful, sustainable future. In Amaze, Cristina elicits our wonder and awe at the natural world and the labyrinth or “maze” of navigating a sustainable existence. The book combines two series: “Enoughness” and “The Water’s Edge.” . About the cover photo “Lady With The Goose”: “I photographed this Lisu woman from one of the Tibetan minorities in China, as she took her pet goose for a walk in a street market in the southwestern corner of China. The image, made with an old single reflex Yashica camera, always makes me smile.” - Cristina says. This image is part of The Water’s Edge. . #amaze #cristinamittermeier #teneues #ladywithgoose

DEFENDER. Meet Cristina. @cristinamittermeier is a defender of nature and positive force of humanity. I had the opportunity to meet Cristina and take her portrait before her @natgeo Live talk 'Standing at the Water's Edge' on Earth Day and I don't think ANY of this was a coincidence... Cristina is a National Geographic Photographer, Conservationist and Writer who has an ability to pause an emotion in time for the purpose of improving someone (or something's) life. You will feel heart through her photos. She said she thinks of herself as an Ethnographer, capturing people and environment to explore cultural perseverance. I learned that not only do we only have one planet to protect; we all have each other at this very instance and that is the most valuable thing we can possess. Cristina founded @sea_legacy alongside @paulnicklen to help reduce the impact of human-induced climate change for healthy and abundant oceans; and now I fully understand why. Cristina, you've left me on fire with heart and passion to create meaningful work with the purpose of LIFE. That's a gift no one else could have given me. Thank you for taking the time to look into my eyes...I saw You. #TurningtheTide #sealegacy #natgeo #cristinamittermeier #climatechangeisreal #climatechange #nationalgeographic #explorecanada #canada #portrait #natgeolive #thephotosociety @thephotosociety

Photograph by John Weller // Just imagine what would be possible if 700 leaders got together in the U.S or Canada to protect their communities and natural resources. That's exactly what happened in the Indonesian province of West Papua, where more than 700 local leaders, citizens, and parliamentary leaders have joined forces to ensure that a law (the Perdasus) that would establish sweeping protections for West Papua gets passed. They have worked incredibly hard and are on their way to making the world's first Conservation Province, Provinsi Konservasi. West Papua is the most biodiverse region on Earth - and this legislation would mean all the precious life within it is protected. Local communities have been practising traditional conservation for more than 1000 years, but the force of unsustainable development is putting many of their resources and wildlife under threat. West Papuan leaders have asked for the international community's help to show the West Papuan government that the whole world cares about protecting West Papua and that we are watching. We can't let them down. Go to the link in our bio to add your voice and help make #ProvinsiKonservasi a reality. We only have until December 1st!

Photograph by @CristinaMittermeier // Sperm whales have the largest brain known to any mammal in existence today; but they also posses an enlarged auditory system. They use complex echolocation and vocalization as loud as 230 decibels to communicate underwater for social and hunting reasons. Sperm whales are incredibly intelligent and social cetaceans, and through global conservation efforts, regulators have been careful to limit the amount of in-water encounters permitted with them to ensure they are protected and respected. We're working with local experts and scientists to furthermore understand the whales' responses to human interaction in the water, and develop new models for this form of sustainable eco-tourism to keep thriving. Through this respectful practice, tourists can learn about the importance of protecting these animals and our oceans, and locals can thrive in the land they know and love, which is much needed after Hurricane Maria devastated Dominica last September. Make sure you practice sustainable eco-tourism and join us in #TurningTheTide !

Photograph by @CristinaMittermeier // Today we're celebrating World Wildlife Conservation day in Dominica with sperm whales, like this one that's enjoying a peaceful afternoon nap. Though these giants of the sea managed to survive decades of commercial whaling, they're still vulnerable to poaching, and conservation efforts are crucial to protect them. Over the years, millions of sperm whales were killed for the spermaceti organs in their heads - the source of their name and an oil that whalers used to harvest and sell. Though sperm whale hunting is now illegal, poachers in countries like Iceland still cut their jaws off to retrieve their teeth to sell on the black market. Despite this continued pressure and death toll, populations of sperm whales slowly recovering in areas like Dominica, thanks to global conservation efforts. Today, we're working with experts to establish new models for tourists to learn to appreciate these majestic creatures, so that they will respect and protect them in future. #TurningTheTide

I took the "Lady with the Goose" photograph in the Yunnan Province of China and it is one of my most asked about images. I photographed this Lisu woman from one of the Tibetan minorities, as she took her pet goose for a walk in a street market in the southwestern corner of China. Its whim and humour make it one of my favourite images. That's why I chose it for the cover of my latest book, Amaze, published by teNeues, which is available for preorder through the link in my bio. #photo by @cristinamittermeier 📸 #photographer #photography #photooftheday #photos #photograph #travelphotography #goose #portraitphotography #portrait #photographylovers #photographylife #art #amaze #nationalgeographic #sony #face #faceart #lady #photoalbum #book #cristinamittermeier @eatpraylove_officialhouse 🏡

Our faces are like a map of our lives. I photographed this warrior in a remote village in the Amazon during one of my first visits. The war paint, the feather headdress, the beautiful bead necklace and arm bands, tell the story of a brave and proud man. This portrait and many others are part of my new book, "Amaze". This weekend, I am proud to be offering a special Limited Edition of the book, presented in a beautifully crafted clamshell and including three fine art prints. The perfect holiday gift for a photography lover.

#Repost #paulnicklen with #make_repost ・・・ On this Thanksgiving, I want to say that I am incredibly grateful for all of you. I never realized that Instagram would connect me to such a beautiful, engaged and passionate group of people. You give us the energy to stay in the fight to speak out on behalf of wildlife and their ecosystems. I am grateful for our incredible #sealegacy team of 22 passionate individuals who stay behind from expeditions and do the heavy-lifting on campaigns, solutions and editing. I am grateful for #cristinamittermeier who is the most passionate conservationist I know. I am grateful to all of the wildlife who have allowed me a glimpse into their secretive worlds. We have a lot of work ahead of us and we are going to keep having conservation wins with @sealegacy. Please get behind us and join us on www.sealegacy.org #turningthetide. #gratitude. Picture of me as a biologist from 25 years ago holding a Canadian lynx that is waking up from its sedative. Science is important but if there is any hope in saving this ailing Earth then that is only going to happen with visual story-telling and passionate people such as yourselves. 🙏

Like I said: appreciate the small and bigger will follow. Yesterday I passed by the kale forest and right after a couple in our restaurant showed me this amazing image in the book 📖 “Wereldplekken - National Geographic”. For a moment I was face to face with these gigantic trees “Allée des baobabs” in Madagascar. The trees are threatened as a result of the increasing irrigation of rice fields 🍚 Photo: Cristina Mittermeier

In the chapter ‘The Water’s Edge’ from her book “Amaze”, @cristinamittermeier presents photographs from around the globe that capture the frontier between land and ocean and the special meaning it has for human life. Whether it is fishermen bringing in their daily haul, women washing laundry in the shallows, or surfers frolicking in the spray, the water’s edge is revealed as an integral and universal space in which ephemeral moments reveal not only our common dependency on the planet, but also our common humanity. • • • #teneues #cristinamittermeier #sealegacy #photography #nature #teNeuesbooks #coffeetablebooks #nationalgeographic #amaze #environment #planetnotplastic #greenland #ice #snow Photo © 2018 Cristina Mittermeier.

Photograph by @CristinaMittermeier // As our expedition team continues the search for whales in the northern fjords of Norway, they've had yet another incredible encounter with orcas. @CristinaMittermeier recalls the experience: "Cold creeps into my core as I enter the dark water. Out of the edge of visibility, I see the unmistakable black-and-white silhouette of an orca coming towards us. She is approaching fast and I must confess mixed feelings of excitement and fear as I fight to hold position. The small female swims quickly in between @paulnicklen and I….and drops a jellyfish in the open space between our bodies. A jellyfish?? I have to wipe my mask to understand what I am looking at. The orca then disappears and comes back two minutes later to take back her jellyfish. Then she vanishes again into the dark water. Was this a gift? Perhaps a gesture of accomplishment? Or maybe an invitation to play? What was this incredibly smart and beautiful animal trying to show us?" This experience highlights the sheer intelligence and complexness of the social behaviours of these animals. We have so much yet to learn and understand about them, but it might not ever happen if they are not protected and their home is under threat. We are working to make these waters permanently protected from oil exploration, so creatures like this orca can continue to live free and thrive in their natural habitat. Become a part of the community and join us in #TurningtheTide for our oceans!

I had the incredible experience of meeting famed conservationist and Indianapolis Prize winner (and Dartmouth alum!)
