amivitale. Paul Nicklen's (@paulnicklen) stunning new book, \"Born to Ice\" is now

Paul Nicklen's (@paulnicklen) stunning new book, "Born to Ice" is now available online at Amazon. He has taken his favorite images and combined them into a beautiful coffee table book that is a vivid and timely portrait of two extraordinary, endangered ecosystems. Experience the ends of the Earth through photos from his astonishing lifetime of working in polar regions. Swipe right for a sneak peeks of some images from the book. In celebration of the holidays, Paul is releasing #BornToIce in a series of signed/inscribed limited edition options. See the link in his bio for more. "Paul Nicklen's Born to Ice... a collection of photographs from his travels to both of this planet's poles, and the result is massive, both literally and figuratively... the book is a treasure for naturalists, photography geeks, and armchair adventurers alike." Paul says, "It's the editor’s 2019 top pick on Amazon for books in 2018. It is my first true Fine Art book and it is the first time I have ever taken all of my favorite Fine Art images from the ends of the Earth and put them in one big (8.8 pounds) Fine Art coffee table book. It is a celebration of a lifetime of working in the polar regions. It is printed in Italy on the finest, sustainable paper and due to its size, every copy is hand-stitched." This week I’m sharing recommendations for books from photographers I love that would make wonderful gifts this holiday season. Please join me in supporting these committed photographers! #paulnicklen #borntoice #photojournalism #arctic

📷 by @cristinamittermeier - this week's podcast with Cristina is linked in bio!!⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Cristina's caption: ⠀ To the casual beach goer, the ocean may often seem like a desert: vast expanses of blue water with little to catch your eye. If you spend enough time out there, however, every once in a while you get a surprise. Imagine how curious these four orcas were when they unanimously decided to spy-hop to take a better look at our small zodiac. Whales are sentient, intelligent animals that have emotions, grieve the loss of their pod members, and can hold sophisticated conversations with each other over vast distances. Their future is in our hands. Please support @sea_legacy with your voice, your influence and your energy so that we can fight for the future of our oceans. #whackamole #whales #stoptheicelandwhalehunt

🌕🐻❄️Les #ours polaires deviennent le symbole du #rechauffementclimatique . Avec 9 millions de tonnes de plastique par an relâchées dans les océans, ce fléau atteint toutes les côtes du monde. En Norvège, sur l’archipel article de Svalbard, le photographe Fabrice Guerin a été spectateur d’un #ourspolaire affamé en train de mâcher un sac plastique pour tenter de subsister. Sur l’île de Baffin, à l’est de #Groenland, c’est #paulnicklen -photographe du #nationalgeographic - qui a filmé un ours polaire sur une terre sèche, à l’agonie.

If you enjoy the beauty and wildlife of the polar regions, check out my good friend and fellow photographer @paulnicklen new book “Born to Ice”. The photos are stunning and stories are powerful reminders how these frozen gems make our world so special, but also a call to protect these delicate, changing ecosystems. I’ve known Paul for two decades and been inspired by his passion and vision—Keep it up Paulie.

My “Paul Nicklen” shot. 😊 Paul’s recent post featured a familiar looking bear I thought I had a similar pic of, so I looked through images I hadn’t shared here yet (1000s 😂) and here she is! Not only were the bears & landscape thrilling to see for the first time, but to spend the week behind my lens next to a photographer & conservationist I truly admire was priceless. I tried not to bug Paul too much (the actual bugs were enough of a bother) with questions about photography but he was so gracious with sharing tips & insight. What stood out the most while observing him with a camera in his hands was his PASSION. He genuinely cares SO MUCH about this planet and all of its inhabitants, especially the wildlife that desperately need voices like his speaking on their behalf. I also learned a lot about the bears we were watching as well as the salmon they were feasting on. Salmon are truly fascinating! 🐟 Go check out @paulnicklen ‘s recent bear post (an actual phenomenal Paul Nicklen shot 😎 📷) and read his #19for2019 tip about smart salmon choices if you’re wanting salmon as part of your diet - see the link in his bio for more details about this important issue. If you don’t already, follow @sealegacy to learn more about how powerful images from Paul and others are the driving force behind actual campaigns making a difference. While it may be a few years before I return to Alaska to see the bears and salmon again, if YOU want to have this epic adventure ⏩ get more info at @_adventurequestx about the summer trips planned for 2019 and 2020. This small group adventure to Katmai National Park was truly one of the best trips of my life (don’t tell the whales I said this 🐋🤫). Or ask me about it!

Tenemos que usar nuestras redes para poder hacer llegar este mensaje a todos! Esta es nuestra arma para que empecemos a tomar conciencia. Un oso polar en los huesos arrastrándose por alimento, los desgarradores efectos del cambio climático. El fotógrafo #PaulNicklen captó el momento, incapaz de hacer nada, captando el momento para que la gente sea testigo de "como se ve un oso hambriento". Nicklen y su equipo filmaron la lenta agonía del oso polar para que no muriese en vano. "Cuando los científicos dicen que los osos se están extinguiendo, quiero que la gente se dé cuenta de lo que parece. Los osos van a morir de hambre," dijo Nicklen. "Así es como se ve un oso hambriento". Cambio climático El fotógrafo busca con estas imágenes lanzar un mensaje más amplio sobre las consecuencias mortales del cambio climático. Durante los meses de verano, los osos polares pasan meses sin comer mientras esperan a que el hielo del Ártico se solidifique. Posteriormente, los animales abandonan su ayuno para busca grandes concentraciones de focas sobre el hielo marino. #salvemoselplaneta #calentamientoglobal

Photo by @PaulNicklen // After spending weeks of camping on the sea ice, I finally took off in my ultralight airplane with my friend and ace pilot, Brian Knutsen. We expected to see a few Narwhals from the air, but never did I expect to find a large group of male Narwhal surrounded by the most stunning pattern and shapes in the sea ice. Nature always teaches me something of value. What I love about my job is that I get to experience nature both above and below the waves. Celebrate this World Animal Day thinking about what you can do to protect our planet's amazing wildlife!

📷 by @cristinamittermeier - this week's podcast with Cristina is linked in bio!!⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Cristina's caption: ⠀ #SDG14 is “Life Below Water” - one of seventeen goals outlined in an agenda to increase prosperity throughout the world. I have been fortunate in my lifetime to have explored all of our earth’s oceans and countless waterways; to have seen firsthand that life below water is beautiful and dynamic and complex, just like the crocodile in this photo. Crocodiles are powerful, impressive animals and their ability to survive in difficult conditions has always held a great fascination for me. Of the 26 species of crocodiles, American crocodiles, like the one in this photo, are one of the most beautiful ones. Once hunted intensively for their hides, today, loss of habitat to human development, illegal killing and roadkill are the greatest threats faced by American crocodiles. As sea level rises due to climate change, a significant portion of crocodiles’ coastal wetland habitat may face saltwater incursion or inundation.

📷 by @cristinamittermeier - this week's podcast with Cristina is linked in bio!!⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Cristina's caption: ⠀ I had to laugh when this baby harp seal plunged its face into the snow. The frozen seas around Iles de la Madeleine are where harp seals head to have their pups. After a short few weeks, the mother returns to the sea, and the babies trade their white coat for a silver one and head to sea. We must #SpeakforNature to make sure that the drama of nature continues to play uninterrupted by the ravages of climate change.

“Ours is a water planet—every second breath we take is drawn from the sea. But today, our oceans are at the limits of their resilience. What we do—or fail to do—within the next five years will determine our fate for the next ten thousand. This is why I cofounded SeaLegacy, an organization that, with your support, can change how this story ends”. — @paulnicklen. During today’s #WorldWhaleDay, we take a closer look at this captivating and important volume of fine art wildlife photography that illustrates Nicklen’s vision of seeking out truth and change. • • • #teneues #paulnicklen #sealegacy #photography #nature #teNeuesbooks #coffeetablebooks #nationalgeographic #borntoice #environment #planetnotplastic #orca #arctic #norway #humpbackwhale #lofoten #norway 📸 © 2018 Paul Nicklen.

Repost @paulnicklen Leopard seals are by far and away the most engaging species I have ever had the privilege of photographing and filming. This seal had an excess of bravado. As I help lead our @sealegacy team in our conservation efforts, it is very rewarding to reflect back on a productive career with National Geographic (@natgeo). For over 18 years, I shot and produced 23 major features for their magazine. Over the next month, I am going to be sharing my favorite moments and images from those assignments with you. If you want to hear more in depth stories about my journey, please join my mailing list.

📷 by @cristinamittermeier - this week's podcast with Cristina is linked in bio!!⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Cristina's caption: ⠀ Why is it such a big deal that Japan has decided to leave the International Whaling Commission? As of July 1st 2019 they will resume commercial whale hunting. Let that idea sink in. Japanese whaling vessels will be roaming the high seas hunting for whales, including populations of Blue, Sei and Fin whales that have never recovered, even after almost 30 years of hunting moratorium. Japan doesn’t want the world to tell them what they can and cannot eat according to their traditions. Perhaps they forget that whales are citizens of this planet and they don’t belong to Japan, or to anyone for that matter. They belong to all of us and to future generations. Over the years thousands of young Japanese people have written me to tell me they don’t eat whale meat and they do not condone whale or dolphin hunting. My 2019 resolution will be to create a movement led by Japanese people that oppose this barbaric idea. We will need your help to mount a massive international campaign to pressure Japan to stop before other countries follow their lead. Please head to the link in my bio and join @sealegacy and The Tide with a monthly donation of any amount you can. Let 2019 be the year we put an end to commercial whaling!⠀ *⠀ *⠀ なぜ日本が国際捕鯨委員会を去ることにしたのは、それほど大したことなのでしょうか。 2019年7月1日の時点で彼らは商業クジラ狩猟を再開する。 30年近くもの狩猟モラトリアムの後でさえも、回復したことのないシロナガスクジラ、セイ、ナガスクジラの個体群を含む、日本の捕鯨船は、公海上のクジラの狩猟をローミングするでしょう。日本は、彼らの伝統に従って、食べられることとできないことを世界に伝えてほしくありません。おそらく彼らは、クジラがこの惑星の市民であることを忘れています、そして彼らは日本やそのことに関して誰にも属していません。彼らは私たち全員と将来の世代に属しています。長年にわたり、何千人もの若い日本人が、クジラの肉を食べないで、クジラやイルカの狩猟を容認しないように私に言ってくれました。私の2019年の決議は、この野蛮な考えに反対する日本の青年が率いる運動を生み出すことです。他の国々が主導権を握る前に日本を止めるように圧力をかける大規模な国際キャンペーンを立ち上げるためにあなたの助けが必要になるでしょう。私の経歴のリンクに向かってください、そして、あなたがすることができるあらゆる量の毎月の寄付でThe Tideに参加してください。 2019年を商業捕鯨に終止符を打つ年にしましょう。⠀ #StopJapanWhaling #turningthetide⠀ ⠀ This work was performed under the authorization n.0 XX-ORAC-2018 issued by the Government, on February 22, 1018
