Photo by @daviddoubilet A young giant petrel became my constant companion in Ocean Harbour South Georgia as I photographed a penguin colony. Giant petrels are opportunistic feeders taking advantage of living and dead prey and are often found living at the edge of penguin colonies. This curious and funny creature had to test everything that was loose or dangling, it would gently pull on camera cords and my mask straps before it decided they were not edible. // photographed with @natgeo@natgeocreative // #ocean#giantpetrel#explore#subantarctic#southgeorgia for #moreocean follow @daviddoubilet
Mushberg, straight ahead! #MushroomMonth
Repost from @natgeo - Photo by @jenniferhayesig A mushroom shaped iceberg glistens in the sun drenched sea off Ilulissat Western Greenland. The name of the town literally means "iceberg" in Kalaallisut (a dialect of Greenlandic language). This iceberg was born in the the Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most active glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere. Greenland's icecap contains +10% of the worlds freshwater supply and is melting at unprecedented pace as temperatures continue to rise. Icebergs are temporary sculptures in the sea, I photographed this formation last week and as I swam away to photograph a tabular berg the mushroom shaped iceberg broke up and vanished.

Pra começar a semana com inspiração, junte-se a essa onda do bem! não utilize plásticos descartáveis! Leve sempre sua garrafinha com você! diga não ao canudo de plástico ! Ele leva 500 anos pra se decompor, e é utilizado por segundos e pra que? leve sua bolsa para fazer compras e não consuma sacolas plásticas!
escolha alimentos que vem sem embalagens plásticas, sempre que possível! (Frutas, legumes, vegetais e etc não precisam estar em isopor e plastico que levarão 500 anos pra se decompor e podem matar muitos peixes e tartarugas!)
sempre que estiver na praia ou natureza retire ao menos 3 lixos que outras pessoas menos conscientes deixaram pra traz!
recicle, reutilize sempre que possível, reduza o consumo de plastico, isopor e embalagens unitárias!
seja o exemplo e ajude a conscientizar sua família e grupos de amigos!
@Regranned from @daviddoubilet - A gallery of life on the Great Barrier Reef. The late largest most iconic coral reef system may be located in Queensland Australia but it really belongs to the world. When I was a kid the Great Barrier was the first reef on my radar of imagination. Today the worlds largest coral reef is literally in hot water. Sequential coral bleaching events in 2016 & 2017 have affected 900+ miles of the 1400 mile long structure. Thermal stress causes the coral polyp to lose its symbiotic algae that provide color and supplemental nutrients. Unprecedented back to back bleaching have left this great reef with little time to recover and struggling to survive.
