Photograph by @PaulNicklen // June is , a chance for us to celebrate an iconic wildlife species and reflect on the plight of these fragile creatures. During the 2017 Norwegian federal election, @Sea_Legacy ran a social media campaign encouraging citizens from around the world to raise their voices and stand together to protect the incredible biodiversity of Norway's northern fjords, like orcas, in the face of an oil and gas expansion. You blew us away with your response - we received over 8.2M impressions and 8K comments in one week! Thank you for with us. We are excited to share with you the release of our first @Sea_Legacy branded t-shirts and hats collection. By choosing to purchase or gift our clothing, you're helping us create campaigns, lead expeditions and drive critical solutions just like we did for the Norwegian Orcas. You can find all of the new merchandise at sealegacy.org, where 100% of the profits go towards healthy and abundant oceans.

Video by @PaulNicklen // The first fin whale has been killed in Iceland. A 65-foot endangered fin whale, defenceless and sentient, was brutally harpooned, dragged ashore and flensed late last night. A photo of the carcass, posted by a Hvalur worker, is circulating the internet. We want to remind you how magnificent these creatures are. There is an unparalleled beauty in seeing these stunning and massive giants in the wild. It is hard for us to understand why a nation, often seen as progressive, and known for its nature tourism, is letting the senseless actions of one man, Kristján Loftsson, dictate the direction of Iceland.

Photo by @nickhawkinsphotography // The moment before the head of a massive 70 foot fin whale breaks through the surface after feeding on herring in the depths of the Bay of Fundy. I spent hundreds of hours watching fin whales when I worked as a naturalist aboard whale watching boats. Few whales left such an impression of grace, power and agility as the spectacular fin whale, second only to the blue whale as the largest animal to have ever lived on our planet. It is both incredible disheartening - and confusing - to learn that Iceland has sanctioned the killing of 238 of these IUCN endangered animals this year. Iceland’s whale watching industry generates $20 million USD annually – far more than the disappearing whale meat market. It’s time for Iceland to choose tourism over whaling.

Video by @PaulNicklen // The International Whaling Commission (IWC) instituted a global moratorium, or pause, on commercial whaling in 1986. Yet, Kristján Loftsson, CEO of Iceland’s only fin whale-hunting business, Hvalur hf (Whale Inc.), continues to operate, ignoring international outrage and the shrinking demand for whale meat. This year, after a two-year hiatus in hunting, the Icelandic government sanctioned the slaughter of 238 endangered fin whales. Those whales are dying right now, each one harpooned and dragged to a slow, cruel end. Economically, the hunt doesn’t make any sense. Iceland’s whale watching industry generates $20 million USD annually – far more than the disappearing whale meat market. It’s time for Iceland to choose tourism over whaling.

Today, the British Columbia Provincial Government renewed tenures for 20 open-net Atlantic salmon fish farms in the province’s largest marine park, the Broughton Archipelago, on a month-to-month basis. In doing so, they broke their campaign promise to implement the Cohen Commission’s recommendations to protect wild salmon. They also introduced a new requirement for these farms to secure First Nations’ consent, but this doesn’t come into effect until after the next provincial election. Governments have a duty to protect our wild salmon. These announcements do nothing to address the environmental impact of open-net Atlantic salmon fish farms, nor do they promote evidence-based decision-making. Despite the political bluster, nothing has changed. We will continue our efforts to . Photograph by @simonagerphotography.

Video by @PaulNicklen // Wild salmon are the lifeblood of British Columbia’s coastal ecosystem. They travel great distances to return to spawning grounds in a fascinating and beautiful natural process. It is also a terribly exhausting struggle. During this migration, wild salmon must navigate past open-net Atlantic salmon fish farms that are notorious for spreading both disease and filth into the waters around them. From sea lice to piscine reovirus to algae blooms, these highly-concentrated open-net pens create lethal obstacles for wild salmon, all in the name of profit. 20 open-net Atlantic salmon farm tenures are set to expire tomorrow.

Photograph by @PaulNicklen // You can’t get much more love and attention than this. It takes two parents to raise one emperor penguin chick. When one parent goes out to sea to bring food back for the baby, the other parent stays to keep it warm. Here, an adult emperor penguin shelters her chick from the cold while the father makes the long ten mile walk back to the colony with fish and krill to feed their single chick. Happy Father's Day to all the hard working dads out there!

The Gardens of the Queen, an 830-square-mile marine reserve, created by the Castro government in 1996, shows us what a healthy coral reef ecosystem saturated with life can be. A collaboration with @Sea_Legacy, @oceanx, and @fusiontv takes you onboard the first non-Cuban research vessel that has ever visited the area and under the thin blue line to witness what a truly healthy and thriving underwater eden looks like.

Cuba's Gardens of the Queen, (Jardines De La Reina), is often called the crown jewel of the Caribbean. This is one of the healthiest and most vibrant marine ecosystems in the world. Strictly protected since 1996, the Gardens show us what's possible when we commit to creating healthy and abundant oceans. Nearly all commercial fishing is prohibited within the reserve, except for the sustainable harvest of spiny lobster. Tourism is also tightly restricted, with just a few thousand divers allowed to visit the reef every year. SeaLegacy, along with OceanX and Fusion TV, was lucky enough to be among them. Tomorrow, we're sharing the stories of that expedition in a full-length documentary. Dive beneath the thin blue line with us to experience the riches of the islands, reefs and mangroves that make up this Caribbean archipelago. Explore the inner depths of one of the world's last intact coral ecosystems, and discover the hidden lives of the sharks, crocodiles, grouper, lobster, sardines and other species that make the Gardens unique. @andy_mann @iankellett_story
