My new fine art book, “Born to Ice” just arrived. One of the hardest parts about doing a book like this is seeing the hundreds of images that hit the cutting room floor. Just like this one. This book easily could have been about polar bears but I wanted it to cover both ends of the Earth emphasizing the interconnectedness of all species within their ecosystems. The team at TeNeues did a beautiful job of putting the book together. After being a journalist for over twenty years, it has been incredibly rewarding to go back through 2 million images and find my favorite fine art images. This one did not make the cut but it was close. I am very proud that @leonardodicaprio took the time to write the foreword. To see more images from the book, please go to the link in my bio.

@cristinamittermeier dives under a large crashing wave in , Oahu, Hawaii. The Hawaiians of Makaha took us under their wing and taught us about their deep connection to the sea. We were debutants and we found ourselves in situations that we would never have thought possible prior to their guidance. Brian Keaulana was teaching us about three and four wave hold downs just prior to this big surf day. We were taught to stay near the bottom, avoiding the foamy white water until we could see solid water before swimming to the surface. my friends from .

That endless supply of gear needed while on assignment. Here, I am running my inflatable boat and literally a ton of gear up a river in the the Yukon Territory in search of denning wolves. Fortunately, we found lynx, wolves, moose, caribou, grizzly bears and other charismatic wildlife that are so crucial to bringing balance to this fragile ecosystem. Photograph by @matherpeter //

On , I’d like to share an old photo of my youth. That is me at age 24 working as a biologist in Canada’s Northwest Territories holding a lynx. I just put a radio on this gorgeous animal so that we could release it back to the wild, track its movements and understand its home range size. I love science, and it has taught me a lot about the foundations of nature, how to identify the changes in numerous ecosystems, and animal behavior. I realized, however, that in order to make people care about nature, I needed to create an emotional connection through powerful visual storytelling. I am thankful that my upbringing, education, and passions led me to this realization, and I have never looked back ever since.

Sailfish are built for speed. Their long bills and aerodynamic bodies cut through water and reach speeds that are among the fastest in the ocean. Sadly, the vast majority of sailfish are caught by unsustainable fisheries. Driftnets and longlines are the major gear types used around the world to catch these billfish and devastatingly produce the highest by-catch rates of any fishing practices. You can help protect marine life like sailfish, by always asking questions and choosing seafood that’s fished or farmed in ways that have minimal impact on the environment. week with @Sea_Legacy.

Photo by @jimmy_chin // Who are your heroes in life? Mine are those who set a bar so high in their respective pursuits that their accomplishments and milestones are completely unfathomable. Head spinning and incomprehensible. For me there is an athlete out there who makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up whenever I think of him. I am truly in awe. And, he is a humble and kind warrior in his pursuits. @alexhonnold is alone when he is up on a 3000 foot rock face. No rope, no metal devices except for his own nerves of steel. Equally impressive is my friend @jimmy_chin who hauls heavy camera gear up the face to film his friend. I have not been this excited to watch a film in a long time.Two exceptional human beings who I admire deeply. E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, the directors of “MERU,” comes FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock ... the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park … without a rope. Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge places his story in the annals of human achievement.

Sockeye salmon are on an exhausting and treacherous journey, up B.C.'s Fraser River right now, swimming upstream for kilometers, through rapids and waterfalls, and past hungry predators to reach the gravel beds where they'll lay eggs for the next generation. With higher than average temperatures, and the waters staying above 20° c for days, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is worried that migrating sockeye are in danger of dying before they have a chance to spawn, not only this year, but in a pattern that doesn't look good for the years to come. This fall, I am heading to Adams River, a tributary to the Thompson and Fraser Rivers in British Columbia, on a @Sea_Legacy mission to see if this river runs red with salmon - up to 14 million are expected in this year's Fraser River salmon run.

The unique personalities of bears are impressively displayed in their hunting styles. Techniques are learned and adapted as they grow up and a characteristic flair is mixed in along the way. Young bears often flail about, chasing salmon up and down creeks. Wise and more experienced bears catch fish after fish with a easy saunter through the shallows. Hunting techniques, however, mean nothing if salmon runs collapse. In the absence of salmon, bears will be in peril. The choices you make, every day, can ensure a healthy ecosystem remains. Become an informed and conscious consumer and learn where your food comes from.

Alaska's Katmai National Park and Preserve is home to the largest concentration of brown bears in the world. As many bear populations around the world decline, Katmai provides some of the few remaining unaltered habitats on Earth with bountiful and sustainable populations of wild salmon – a key food source for for these powerful and awe-inspiring creatures. Wild salmon are also the foundation of a nutrient cycle that sustains this entire ecosystem and a tourism industry built on fishing and bear watching. This all could change if the proposed Pebble Mine begins construction nearby. The millions upon millions of fish that come to the region every year to spawn, the largest sockeye salmon run in the world, will be put at risk in the pursuit of gold and copper when an entire infrastructure network of pipelines, roads, and shipping lanes take over the land. @Sea_Legacy as we take an in-depth look into this region in the upcoming months.

One of the things I love the most about @Sea_legacy is that caring, passionate and concerned people come into our lives all the time. We just had a beautiful dinner with @sarahwaynecallies and her family and we talked about conservation for hours. Sarah is not only a gifted actor (I watched alll seasons of prison break while I was in Antarctica )but she is going to join our Swell team and help amplify the message about protecting our oceans. . @cristinamittermeier and I are lucky!!

Krill are at the center of Antarctica's food chain and are a vital food source for seals, whales, and penguins. In high-demand, these tiny crustaceans have been overfished for their oil, which is rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. After years of negotiations, a majority of the fishing industry formally agreed to stop hauling in krill from around the peninsula's troubled penguin colonies. This new agreement is the first commitment of its kind and is a vital piece in the on-going, collaborative effort to ensure the survival of polar wildlife. Stay tuned as @CristinaMittermeier, @Sea_Legacy, and I release images from our @NatGeo expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula last January in the pursuit of establishing marine protected networks.
