Between Land and Sea: Saving Our Oceans to Save Ourselves
National Geographic photographer Cristina Mittermeier has dedicated her life to safeguarding the world’s oceans and inspiring millions to do the same. With a degree in biochemical engineering in marine sciences and training in fine art photography, she founded the International League of Conservation Photographers to drive conservation efforts through storytelling. She co-founded SeaLegacy, a nonprofit that works at the intersection of art, science and conservation to rewild the ocean for the benefit of biodiversity, humanity and climate stability. Born in Mexico, Mittermeier spends half the year living in Canada and the other half at sea aboard her research catamaran SeaLegacy I. Join Mittermeier as she shares images and stories from her travels and explores how inextricably linked we are to that most sacred element – water.
