“This was one of the moments in Machali's life that separated her from all the other tigers in Ranthambore National Park. She drove her mother and sisters out of her land at such a young age and kept that land for several years. Not only did she not let other large male tigers take it from her, she also did not allow ANY predator to out-do her. Her offspring and genes can be found all throughout Ranthambore National Park and she was one of the most successful animals that has ever been documented. Even as she aged and lost her ruler status, lost her ability to successfully hunt for herself, and lost her canines, she still remained the heart of India.” • Around the world, cultures respect tigers for their grace and power yet over the last century, habitat loss and poaching have devastated the global population by almost 96%. • • 📸 by Murli Dhar Parashar | @mdparashar #repost from Shizzy’s Wildcat Rescue | @shizzyswildcatrescue • • • #machali #ranthambhore #india #tiger #tigress #legend #worthmorealive #endangered #habitat #habitatconservation #earth #nature #wildlife #animals #species #biodiversity #environment #naturehub #racingextinction #turningthetide #360fortheplanet #naturelovers #protect #conservation #awareness #save #everydayextinction #photography #photooftheday

“For a long time I thought I had to shock my audience out of their indifference with disturbing images. And while this approach has merits, i have come full circle. I believe the best for me to effect change is to sell love... You can’t love something and become a champion for it if you don’t know it exists.” - @thomaspeschak at @ted . . .

Humpbacks of the South Pacific. Moments like this are my favorite. Fast, full of adrenaline, and more to see than my brain can process. @dancewithwhales

A large baby whale throws its tail above and below the surface of the water creating massive turbulence which almost looks like artwork! These baby whales are the size of a car and their tail as large as an adult. No wonder they create such waves during play. 📷 @karimiliya

An adorable beautiful green turtle exploring the Sugar Wreck just north of Tiger Beach in the Bahamas! Sadly all seven sea turtles are listed with some level of endangered! We must do all we can to protect our friends in the sea! I love Sea Turtles! Do you? Over 1000 sea turtles have died in Florida due to Red Tide! One of the sources of the fuel feeding this Red Tide fire is herbicide spraying of Aquatic plants and our aquifers (drinking water) please sign and share the petition to help end this!

A humpback whale slaps a flipper along the side of the boat. Zoom in and see the wounds this whale bares.

Amazing!!! #Repost @nickpolanszkyphotography ・・・ Sea Lion Star . California Sea Lions in their younger years, become a little destructive around the reef of Los Islotes, La Paz, Baja California Sur. In one of the dark archways of the island, the Sea Lions will rip up starfish, coral, nudibranch or whatever they can get their teeth onto. Swimming back to the surface they will then drop it and let it fall back down, quickly swimming down to catch it before it lands .

Maria-Teresa Solomons - La Paz, Mexico. - Maria-Teresa Solomons of Ocean Yoga Dive is one of only two AIDA freediving instructors in Mexico certified to train other instructors. Working out of La Paz on the Sea of Cortez, she has a front row seat on the ecotourism activity in the area and the NGOs that are working to protect and better understand the wildlife that lives there. Sealives was lucky enough to spend three days in freediving training with MT (as everyone calls her) and discussed her views on life, freediving, and ocean conservation. - To learn more about freediving in La Paz visit www.oceanyogadive.com #ocean #freedive . . . . . #oceans #freediving #diving #conservation #dive #community #oceanconservation #Mexico #saveourseas #saveouroceans #ocean #turningthetide #sealives #sealivesdotorg #sealivesinitiative #marinelife #oceanhealth #photojournalism #divers #LaPaz #ecotourism #freedivers #freediverlife #freedivephotography

Photograph by @CristinaMittermeier // @PaulNicklen has no trouble getting into the water with a grizzly bear or a leopard seal. But, as he prepared for his first dive with an American crocodile in Cuba's Gardens of the Queen, he confessed he was a bit nervous. Yet, he jumped in to document the economic, social, and environmental benefits of marine protected areas. In 2016, the world committed to protecting 10% of of coastal and marine areas by 2020, as part of the UN sustainable development goals. But with just 3% currently protected, the situation has become urgent. Visit the link in our bio to see how we are #TurningTheTide for coastal and marine areas in the Caribbean.

[ ENG below 😉 ] Fous de bassan des îles Shetland, Écosse. Une récente étude du Centre d´Écologie Fonctionnelle et Évolutive (CEFE) a montré que "la population d’oiseaux marins a chuté de 70% depuis 1950, 38% de ces espèces sont en voie de disparition, la moitié des espèces est en déclin". Les causes sont clairement identifiées: pillage par la pêche des eaux internationales, pollution, changement des milieux, etc. Espérons que les effectifs de cet oiseau incroyable qu´est le fou de bassan continueront d´augmenter aux Shetland, cela nous donnera de l´espoir pour les autres espèces. - -- - Northern Gannets, Shetland Islands, Scotland. A recent study from the French research Center in Ecology and Evolutionnary Ecology showed that "the global sea bird population has decreased by 70% since 1950, 38% of these species are now endangered and half are still decreasing". Large-scale fisheries in international waters, the pollution of the oceans the changing conditions are some of the reasons. Hopefully the census of this amazing bird - which is the gannet - will keep up increasing: it will give us some kind of hope for the other species. #TurningTheTide #ChangeonsLaDonne #Hope #Espoir #Conservation #Marinebirds #Gannet #Shetland #Gannets @sonyworldclub #Scotland #ocean #bealpha #NorthSea #nature @cnrs @sonyalphapro @sealegacy #SonyWorldClub #ProtegeonsCetteCote @sea_legacy_france #naturephotography #foudebassan #Ecosse #wildlife #wildlifephotography #cefe #cnrs #montpellier #gratitude #naturelovers #Shetlandislands

sealegacy. Photograph by @DaisyGilardini // When photographing wildlife portraits

Photograph by @DaisyGilardini // When photographing wildlife portraits, I always try to capture my subject looking straight at me, with both eyes in the frame. Having the head tilted a bit gives me a more three-dimensional feel. I find that side profiles, for their flat appearance, don’t work for me. This is why prefer to look at the subject straight-on. Depth-of-field can be tricky, though, especially with birds with long beaks. Always pay attention to the eyes. Focus on the eyes. That's my priority. Emperor penguin chicks are simply adorable to work with!

The gorgeous large Black groupers at Tiger beach are always right in front of my camera...a true photo bomber! I enjoy being with all animals no matter how big or small! Our planets immense biodiversity is what keeps us all alive, as we are all connected! Decades ago when i first discovered that fish were sentient creatures...I stopped eating them! Now that I know that our individual food choices have such huge consequences for the planet as well as my health, i'm proudly vegan! Eating Agricultural Animals is the worlds leading cause of 9 of our planets worst problems including: 1 Gloval Warming 2 Water Depletion & Pollution 3 Ocean Dead Zones 4 Rainforest Destruction 5 Species Extinction 6 Habitat Loss 7 Human Starvation 8 Human Bad Health Issues 9 Animal Exploitation Abuse & Killing I was over weight, with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and prediabetic...headed for a heart attack, before I gave up eating animals! I've never felt better or been this healthy since I switched! How do you feel about all this? @jim_abernethy @sealegacy @wildlifevoiceinc #TurningTheTide #conservation #saveplanetearth #lovenature #veganfornature #loveanimals #worldissues #beautiful #blackgrouper #vegan
