14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A green sea turtle rises to the surface for a breath just off the coast of Florida. Sustainable travel is something we all should strive to consider and eventually adopt. As often as I can, I go out and explore the world's oceans with my cameras. I also strive to document the work of others who are protecting and conserving our environment, specifically in the world of sea turtle conservation. During nesting season I go out with our amazing biologists, scientists and volunteers who help to protect and document sea turtle habitats in South Florida. These turtles face a huge battle of survival on their upcoming "travels," and every person I can impact with their picture is a win!
