In 2016, Al Gore invited me to Antarctica as part of his @ClimateReality project, and he used this image during his TED talk about optimism. I believe it captures the ephemeral beauty of ice. Together with @CristinaMittermeier and @Sea_Legacy, I have seen the disastrous effects of climate change in person so, so many times. Tonight, Cristina and I will take part in an internationally webcast one-hour conversation with @PropertyBrothersโ€™ @MrSilverScott as part of 24 hours of artists, thought leaders, business visionaries, politicians and musicians bringing this ultra important issue to the forefront. Tune into our Facebook page at 8PM EST to hear it.

this is painful to watch and see how we are distroying life on this planet. Yet this is teh result of our greed.

It really is heartbreaking ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ญ We definitely have to change the way we treat our home (the Earth) and all helpless animals... We need to make a change! Now!

There is no place I would rather be in this world. I have shared this before but we are getting ready to do some serious diving with Steller sea lions off the coast of BC with @sea_legacy. These are the moments we live for but conservation impact is our ultimate goal. Join the tide with @sea_legacy and follow along. Video by: Sean Ruggeri @snapamap @reddigitalcinema

Happy #WorldWhaleDay. Killer whales are much more appropriately referred to as orcas and are not whales at all. In fact, they are the largest member of the dolphin family. Did you know that there has never been a recorded case of an orca killing a person in the wild and yet they are one of the most feared animals on this planet. We must change our perceptions of these beautiful, highly intelligent, gentle and vulnerable species. For those of you who expressed your desire to see the orcas of Norway protected from oil exploration, I thank you everyday. I am so excited that @sea_legacy is going back this November to continue on with this important campaign.

He was massive. Later, I assessed the size of this tracks. I could stand with both feet in my size 10 winter boots inside one of his paw prints. In Inuktitut, Tumiit means paw prints and I love how I have always followed in the tracks of these nomadic carnivores. #bear #polarbear #giant #beauty #nomad #Tumiit #explore

If you get the chance to visit @paulnicklengallery, in #Soho, #NYC make sure to take a moment with this image, "Home Ice Advantage", which shows two Chinstrap penguins taking a break before continuing their swim offshore to begin their lives at sea. This piece shows a dynamic relationship that is under constant and increasing threat from climate change. Ice is critically important for penguins: it is their perch, their safe haven from predators, their launch pad. But iceโ€”especially sea ice formed by frozen ocean waterโ€”is also essential for krill, the staple of the penguin diet and the entire Antarctic ecosystem. Warming temperatures and rapidly melting ice have seen some penguin populations drop by more than half in the past 30 years. We cannot let images like this become relics of the past. This piece is available in limited edition from the @paulnicklengallery in the sizes 20" x 30" and 40" x 60". Check out their page for more updates on fine art by myself and other fantastic conservationist artists! #TurningTheTide

Standing on the shores of South Georgia, Antarctica was intense, beautiful, emotional and humbling. I felt incredibly fortunate to visually feast on such a paradise. #expedition #turningthetide with @sea_legacy #penguin #naturelovers #nature
