Cristina Mittermeier - SeaLegacy

By Daniel Clarke

Cristina Mittermeier is a contributing photographer, speaker, and explorer for National Geographic. She is the Founder and President of SeaLegacy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the protection of the world’s oceans through storytelling with her partner, Canadian photographer Paul Nicklen. She founded the prestigious International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) to provide a platform for photographers working on environmental issues.  Cristina has received the Smithsonian Conservation Photographer of the Year Award and been named one of National Geographic’s 2018 Adventurers of the Year. She is also the first female photojournalist to reach one million followers on Instagram. We talk about: - swimming in icy Norwegian waters with orcas - floating beside an American crocodile in Cuba - the heartbreaking video of a starving polar bear that she filmed last year - and what it truly will take to save our oceans Please check out and support Cristina’s work: www.cristinamittermeier.com www.sealegacy.org www.instagram.com/cristinamittermeier/ www.facebook.com/cristinamittermeier www.twitter.com/cmittermeier Sources for topics discussed: Jacques Cousteau: https://bit.ly/2n7Xvjy Blue Planet sperm whale family: https://bbc.in/2MThrAk dying baby penguin: https://bit.ly/2RMS6cd starving polar bear: https://on.natgeo.com/2KkSz1H Tony Wu: https://bit.ly/2SGv7Eo Lonely Whale: www.lonelywhale.org Adrian Grenier: https://bit.ly/2MTU5dU Racing Extinction: www.racingextinction.com Racing Extinction extinct bird video: https://bit.ly/2GezsIR Japan resuming commercial whaling: https://bit.ly/2LyoXju Louie Psihoyos: https://bit.ly/2BsgOJI SeaLegacy “STOP ICELAND WHALING”: https://bit.ly/2uzb3q1 SeaLegacy “ban deathnets”: https://bit.ly/2GheWXY Shawn Heinrichs: https://bit.ly/2HUoZUC Paul Hilton: https://bit.ly/2SqPUsr Fishing village success story for manta rays: https://bit.ly/2JGfW6e Cristina swimming with orcas in Norway: https://bit.ly/2DZBeLS Timothy Treadwell: https://bit.ly/2DkorSq Grizzly Man: https://bit.ly/1GP4P8d Paul Nicklen: https://bit.ly/1lv8s9n Paul Nicklen spirit bears: https://bit.ly/2UPDafr International League of Conservation Photographers: https://bit.ly/2DXtCJt Full show notes available @ https://bit.ly/2BthePW --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/escape-the-zoo/support
