Regram #RG anatgeo: Photograph by athomaspeschak A bottlenose dolphin hangs upside down effortlessly as the current rages around the underwater volcanic pinnacle known as "El boiler". Situated off San Benedicto island, it lies in the heart of the #Revillagigedo archipelago marine protected area, 240 miles south of Baja California, Mexico. A critical initiative to expand this marine reserve, to further benefit large marine species that roam vast distances is currently underway. Shot on assignment for @NatGeo magazine for the forthcoming September 2017 story focused on marine conservation successes in Mexico. Please #follo thomaspeschak and @maresmexicanos to learn more about Mexico's western seas, where conservation initiatives are bearing fruit. #mexico#baja#dolphin diving #conservation View all 1236 comments
El nombre actual del Archipiélago de Revillagigedo deriva de un libro de James Colnett, explorador y oficial de la marina inglesa, quien las nombró así en 1798 por haber sido liberado de su captura en Isla Socorro por orden del entonces virrey de Nueva España, conde de Revilla Gigedo.
Punta Tosca and its volcanic formations from Evermann Volcano in less than a 50 km radium from its last submarine eruption site in 1993, researchers says Evermann Volcano is 4,000 mts high, it is quite logic data since the deepest zone in Mexico is 6,000 mts near to Oxaca coast in North Pacific Ocean #RutaEVT
Happy World Oceans DAY! World Oceans Day had been unofficially celebrated every 8 June since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada. At the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2008 this day was officially recognized by the United Nations. MANTA - THE BOILER - MARÇO 2017
At the convergence of two marine biogeographic regions, Mexico's Revillagigedo islands are rich with marine life. Known as the “Galápagos of Mexico,” this archipelago provides critical habitat to one of the largest aggregations of sharks and manta rays in the world, as well as tuna, humpback whales, dolphins, five species of sea turtles and many endemic species. The Revillagigedo archipelago was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site last year, yet the unique and pristine marine ecosystems that it harbors are threatened by the pressures of industrial and sport fishing. These remarkable islands represent a true opportunity for no-take protection.
In art this may is not a good picture but in life is so interesting to know most of this grass came from the America's thanks the pacific marine currents and there are some species that we can not see in America anymore due to the human activity, researchers says that in the other half of the island there are species from Asia that we can't see in Americas but marine currents works equals inshore in the other side of the Pacific Ocean that's why creates this great phenomenon in islands ⛰//// important to say now we in Mexico will protect even more this place making the figure as National Park but still closed for tourism in pro of many species around so excited to be part of the history 🏽 #islasocorro#islas#mexico#revillagigedo#volcanes#valcano#volcanevermann#grass#y#my#pacificocean#nature#naturelovers#researchtrip#natureconservation#inature#igers#igersmexico
#TBT to exploring the lower side of this little island. The smallest and most remote of Mexico's four Revillagigedo islands, Roca Partida can be seen as two inhospitable, rocky horns jutting out of the water. Below the surface, it's full of life.
