SeaLegacy Photographers Use Images to Save The Ocean

Sea Legacy

Monaco, November 6, 2015 -As our planet’s oceans become ever more threatened by overfishing, industrialization, and climate change, SeaLegacy—a collective of the worlds best marine/conservation photographers, filmmakers, scientists, and social media—race to galvanize attention and drive change.

Cristina Mittermeier and Paul Nicklen are photographers who have traveled the world documenting the beauty and suffering of our seas and the life within them. Together, they will lead the organization.

Cristina Mittermeier, Executive Director of SeaLegacy, and Paul Nicklen, a renowned National Geographic photographer and co-founder of the group, are making the official announcement of their new organization, SeaLegacy, in Monaco at the opening of the BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit.

The BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Ocean Summit is an international film festival that draws scientists, filmmakers, explorers, and activists from all over the world with film screenings and keynote speakers that highlight the value of our seas. The event will take place at the Monaco Oceanographic Museum under the auspices of HRH, Prince Albert of Monaco.

The launching event of SeaLegacy, sponsored by Canadian philanthropist Taylor Thomson, includes the opening of a stunning photography exhibition entitled “The Thin Blue Line” that showcases the work of SeaLegacy.

“Organizations dedicated to marine conservation have lots of valuable data but often lack the communications skills and visual assets to engage the media, governments, and the public at large,” says Cristina Mittermeier, who also founded the prestigious International League of Conservation Photographers. “By making high-quality visual materials available to organizations so that they can energize their campaigns, we will be more successful.”

With 90% of the big fish in the ocean already gone, half of the coral reefs on the planet dead, and almost the entire ice cover in the Arctic completely gone in the summer months, our oceans are in need of a captivating “voice” that can convey the imperative to protect it.

Sea Legacy

“Enoughness” Morondava, Madagascar -The Vezo people are a semi-nomadic coastal people that make a living off the marine and coastal resources of southwestern Madagascar. Although they lack much in terms of material possessions, the bounty of the sea provides enough food to maintain their existence.

For most of us, eating fish is commonplace, however, for one billion of the poorest people in the world, it is their only source of protein.

This is yet another important reason to work towards healthy oceans.

SeaLegacy’s collective of gifted storytellers is poised to energize conservation campaigns by partnering with science-based organizations that are working towards the protection of the ocean.

“The world needs to wake up to the dire situation facing our oceans and all its creatures,” says photojournalist Paul Nicklen, who has produced over 20 stories for National Geographic Magazine. “Through a team of the most skilled photographers and filmmakers in the world, we will make sure the general public, and especially politicians, are aware of the urgent need to act swiftly and boldly if we want to maintain the ecological integrity of our oceans.”

Many examples of how effective visual communications can achieve significant results already exist. From the photograph of a small boat confronting a Japanese whaling ship that incited the birth of the modern environmental movement, to the public outcry against the slaughter of dolphins, whales, and sharks, communications are a key component of all environmental campaigns.

With its ability to capture powerful images of nature in all its brilliance, SeaLegacy is poised to become an important organization in the on-going stewardship of the ocean.

The launch of SeaLegacy is positioned three weeks prior to COP21 in Paris, November 30 to December 11, 2015, where international leaders will meet to discuss solutions to climate change and sustainability.

“Tragic Beauty” Nordaustlandet Ice Cap, Svalbard, Norway -As it melts, the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushes high volumes of water into the Barents Sea.

Ninety-eight percent of glaciers in the northern hemisphere are receding.

The effects of climate change are already a reality in the Arctic, which could be completely free of sea ice during the summer months in the next 10 to 20 years.
Sea Legacy

“Liquid Curtain” Andfjorden, Norway -An eager humpback whale flicks its tail across the water’s surface as it dives down into a ball of herring.

Humpback whales were hunted to the verge of extinction, but years of protection have allowed their populations to rebound significantly.

The introduction of oil exploration in Norwegian waters could not only affect the humpbacks but every other living marine organism in this high productivity area.

BLUE is an international non-profit organization that uses the power of film, visual arts, entertainment, and science to inspire ocean stewardship around the world.

The annual Festival has become the premier film fest for scientists, filmmakers, explorers, artists, government leaders, celebrities and ocean enterprises, providing a springboard for individual empowerment and policy action to help save Earth’s blue life support system, the 71% percent of the planet’s surface that is ocean.

Monaco has become the second BLUE site after a signed partnership with the Prince Albert II Foundation and the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.

“This festival uses the power of films, photography, entertainment and science to learn, advance and initiate a durable management of our oceans throughout the world. To arouse consciousness in favor of a more concrete protection of the environment, our best tools are those that win hearts and mark our spirits,” said HSH Prince Albert.
