Photo by @simonagerphotography // Nudibranchs are a group of soft-bodied, marine gastropod molluscs which shed their shells after their larval stage. They are noted for their often extraordinary colours and striking forms, and they have been given colourful nicknames to match, such as "Clown", "Marigold", "Splendid", "Dancer" and "Dragon". Currently, about 2,300 valid species of nudibranchs are known. #nudibranchs #nudibranchs #seashepherd #conservation #critters #ocean #sealegacy #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // The great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias), commonly known as the great white or the white shark, is a species of large mackerel shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The great white shark is notable for its size, with larger female individuals growing to 6.1 m (20 ft) in length and 1,905 kg (4,200 lb) in weight at maturity. However most are smaller, males measuring 3.4 to 4.0 m (11 to 13 ft) and females 4.6 to 4.9 m (15 to 16 ft) on average. According to a 2014 study the lifespan of great white sharks is estimated to be as long as 70 years or more, well above previous estimates, making it one of the longest lived cartilaginous fish currently known. According to the same study, male great white sharks take 26 years to reach sexual maturity, while the females take 33 years to be ready to produce offspring. Great white sharks can swim at speeds of over 56 km/h (35 mph) #greatwhiteshark #cagediving #guadeloupe #shark #seashepherd #sharkfinning #sealegacy #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // The Royal Tern nests on island beaches or isolated beaches with limited predators. It lays one or two eggs, usually in a scrape, an area on the ground where a tern has made a small hole to lay its eggs. In some cases, tern eggs are laid directly on the ground, not in a scrape. The eggs incubate from 25 to 30 days; after the eggs hatch the chicks remain in the scrape for about a week. About two weeks after hatching the chicks gather into groups called a crèche. When the chicks are in the crèche, they are primarily fed by their parents who recognize their offspring by their voice and looks. When the chicks are a month old they fledge or start to fly. Royal terns mature around the age of 4 years, after which they build their own nests and reproduce. #royaltern #chick #gabon #beach #birds #seashepherd #sealegacy #turningthetide #mayumba #gabon

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Today is World Whale Day which aims to raise awareness of these magnificent creatures. The annual holiday was founded in Maui, Hawaii, in 1980, to honour humpback whales, which swim off its coast. It’s the main showcase of the Maui Whale Festival. However, you don’t have to visit Maui to mark this special day. Whales need support from wildlife lovers everywhere to meet conservation threats such as loss of habitat and pollution, #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal #seashepherdaustralia #humpbackwhale #whales #sealegacy #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Sea lions are sea mammals characterized by external ear flaps, long foreflippers, the ability to walk on all fours, and short, thick hair, big chest and belly. Together with the fur seals, they comprise the family Otariidae, eared seals, which contains six extant and one extinct species (the Japanese sea lion) in five genera. Their range extends from the subarctic to tropical waters of the global ocean in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, with the notable exception of the northern Atlantic Ocean. They have an average lifespan of 20–30 years. A male California sea lion weighs on average about 300 kg (660 lb) and is about 8 ft (2.4 m) long, while the female sea lion weighs 100 kg (220 lb) and is 6 ft (1.8 m) long. The largest sea lion is Steller's sea lion, which can weigh 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) and grow to a length of 10 ft (3.0 m). #sealions #mammals #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal #seashepherdaustralia #sealegacy #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Diving in kelp forests is one cool experience! Kelp forests can be seen along much of the west coast of North America. Kelp are large brown algae that live in cool, relatively shallow waters close to the shore. They grow in dense groupings much like a forest on land. These underwater towers of kelp provide food and shelter for thousands of fish, invertebrates, and marine mammal species. Kelp forests harbor a greater variety and higher diversity of plants and animals than almost any other ocean community. Many organisms use the thick blades as a safe shelter for their young from predators or even rough storms. Among the many mammals and birds that use kelp forests for protection or feeding are seals, sea lions, whales, sea otters, gulls, terns, snowy egrets, great blue herons, cormorants, and shore birds. #kelp #northamerica #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal #seashepherdaustralia #sealegacy #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Under ideal conditions, giant kelp can grow an astonishing two feet each day. Held upright by gas-filled bladders at the base of leaflike blades, kelp fronds grow straight up to the surface, where they spread across the top of the water to form a dense canopy. Giant kelp often grows in turbulent water, which brings renewed supplies of nutrients, allowing the plants to grow to a possible height of 175 feet. The stemlike stipes are tough but flexible, allowing the kelp to sway in ocean currents. #kelp #sealegacy #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Reaching widths of nearly 11 feet (over 3 m), the spotted eagle ray is one of the largest eagle rays, with only the mantas growing bigger. spotted eagle rays, like all eagle rays, are active swimmers and do not lie motionless on the seafloor, like the closely related whiptail stingrays (e.g., southern stingray). They are foraging predators and are known to eat a variety of invertebrate and fish prey. Just like the name implies, the spotted eagle ray is covered in spots and other markings. It is unmistakable with any other species throughout its range. #spottedeagleray #rays #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal #seashepherdaustralia #sealegacy #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Even though young Galapagos fur seals are not weaned until at least the age of 2, pups begin to make trips into the ocean at 6 months and begin to forage for themselves at 12 months. However, pups continue to rely on milk as a major form of nourishment until they are fully weaned and become independent, which typically occurs between the ages of 2 and 3 #galapagosislands #furseal #seashepherd #sealegacy #conservation #sealpup #turningthetide

Photo by @simonagerphotography // As a wide ranging top predator, habitat destruction is the primary threat to the Vancouver Island wolves. Their native range has been greatly reduced by human incursion, and many areas that are potentially habitable are unoccupied due to fragmentation, as the wolf packs are generally unwilling to cross through developed areas, and thus leave those areas unutilized. More direct threats from humans are common as well. Government sanctioned wolf kills have been conducted in the past, either to preserve the deer population, or to attempt to lessen the pressure on the Vancouver Island marmot. Though the total population remaining is estimated to be under 150 (Ministry of the Environment, 2008). hunting of the wolves does occur on the island, with many guides offering trips. The active hunting of reproductive adult wolves undoubtedly has the potential to extinguish the population on Vancouver Island. #vancouverisland #wolves #predator #hunting

Photo by @simonagerphotography // One of the shyest and most elusive creatures on Vancouver Island is the Vancouver Island wolf. A subspecies of the mainland grey wolf, this animal is endemic to Vancouver Island, and is considered an endangered species. Living in packs from five to 20, the wolves usually stay far from human activity. They are most common on the northern portions of the island, and as well within Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds, where most of their human contact takes place. Some controversy surrounds the wolves as they are one of the animals being blamed for the continuing decline of the Vancouver Island marmot. #wolves #vancouverisland #britishcolumbia #endangeredspecies

One of the officers aboard the vessel would garner the name ‘Balaclava Man’, frequently coming out on the deck to observe us. On this such occasion as we attempt to deliver messages to the Indonesian deck crew via small boat, a length of chain is hurled towards us. I saw it coming right at me as I looked through the camera and luckily dodged right, the chain narrowly missing my face and hitting the A frame of the boat and into the sea.

During a skirmish that lasted for hours in high seas, the crew getting slammed by large swells as they positioned themselves behind a harpoon vessel towing a cable that threatened to prop foul the Bob Barker. The small boat crew attempted in vein for hours to cut the cable as the harpoon vessel turned hard back and forth, the cable swinging over the small boat tearing off the radar tower. Back onboard Lex sits exhausted, it’s an emotional time coming down from giving everything you have and putting yourself in harms way to save the lives of whales.

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Adélie penguins are sea ice obligate birds, which means they exist only where there is sea ice, just as many song birds exist only where there are trees. Penguins are really great at swimming but are slow at walking. Areas of open water allow the penguins to be more efficient at foraging and bringing back food to their chicks. For their size, Adélies can dive deeper and hold their breath longer to reach farther under ice floes than can penguin species that avoid sea ice.Not surprisingly, the Adélie colonies are highly sensitive to minor changes in the amount of sea ice, which itself is responsive to changing climate. #sealegacy #turningthetide #adeliepenguin #antarctica #climatechange #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal

Photo by @simonagerphotography // A Gabonese forest elephant staring back at me through the thick bush. More than 25,000 elephants have been killed by poachers in Gabon in just a decade between 2004-2014. The very survival of the species is now at risk. African elephants (Loxodonta africana) are some of the world’s most loved and charismatic animals. Yet, we still know little about the extraordinary sensitivity and cognitive abilities of these giants, which are able to sense storms from miles away, among other things. Their mysterious brain (whose number of neurons is three times that of humans) could remain unknown, as the species faces extinction due to the illegal ivory trade. According to the IUCN, their population has decreased by 20 per cent between 2006 and 2015 and today accounts for 415,000 individuals. China’s recent announcement of a ban on its ivory trade by 2017 could represent a turning point for elephant conservation, before it’s too late. #gabon #forestelephant #elephant #tusk #ivory #extinction #china #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal #sealegacy

Photo by @simonagerphotography // Incidental capture in fishing gear (also known as bycatch) is likely the greatest threat to sea turtles and many other species worldwide. Approximately 40% of all animals caught in fisheries are discarded as trash. Marine mammals, sea turtles, seabirds, and other species are caught and discarded, usually dead. For those animals that are caught and released injured but still alive, their fate after being released is unknown. Trawls, longlines, driftnets, gillnets, pots, and traps are all responsible for the death of marine creatures by incidental capture or entanglement. #fishing #bycatch #turtles #commercialfishing #extinction #loggerhead #greenback #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal #seashepherdaustralia #turningthetide #sealegacy #tunafleet #vegan

Photo by @simonagerphotography // The true cost of your sushi roll. Victims of the tuna industry, a vessel encircled a school of tuna, also trapping 128 sharks. Unceremoniously strung up by the tail and discarded dead and dying back to the ocean. Bycatch is the capture of non-target fish and ocean wildlife, including what is brought to port and what is discarded at sea, dead or dying. Bycatch is one of the biggest threats to the oceans and has contributed to over fishing and the dramatic decline of fish populations around the world. Commercial fisheries bring in approximately 160 billion pounds of marine catch around the world each year. Recent estimates indicate as much as 40 percent of global catch is discarded overboard. Anything can be bycatch: the dolphins, sharks, whales, that are encircled to bring you canned tuna and sushi, the sea turtles caught to bring you shrimp, the flounder thrown overboard to put seared scallops on the menu, the endangered whales migrating thousands of miles only to become entangled for the sake of lobster bisque, and the millions of pounds of halibut or cod that are wasted when fishermen have already reached their quota. Much of this captured wildlife is treated as waste, thrown overboard dead or dying. This conservation problem must be solved to ensure healthy oceans into the future. #bycatch #sealegacy #turningthetide #seashepherd #unsustainable #overfishing #tuna #sushi #vegan #fishing #photooftheday #parleyfortheoceans

Photo by @simonagerphotography // A Chinese longliner crew hooks a highly endangered Yellowfin tuna. How fish are caught also affects their sustainability. Longlining can be especially devastating because it involves one line that can have 3,000 baited hooks and stretch for up to 50 miles (80.5 kilometers). The hooks dangle at a depth between 328 feet (100 meters) and 492 feet (150 meters), where the largest tuna—such as the threatened bluefin—tend to swim. The hooks also catch more than 80 kinds of nontargeted creatures, including endangered sea turtles, which often die on the line before the fishing vessel reels in the catch. #sushi #longliner #tuna #sealegacy #turningthetide #endangered #yellowfintuna #vegan #seashepherd #deadoceans #gabon
