Over 30% of Emperor Penguin colonies are under threat from disappearing sea and glacial ice. Through @sea_legacy, @cristinamittermeier and I we will be leading donor funded expeditions to document many of the most beautiful and remote places on Earth in order to highlight the importance of healthy ecosystems, draw attention to all the creatures that rely on them, and showcase what we all stand to lose if we don’t actively protect them. @sea_legacy, #marineprotectedareas, #climatechange @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #instagramhub
