I am happy to share that National Geographic chose my image to accompany a write up on the conservation work of Planeta Oceano's director Kerstin Forsberg.
I swear it's true, it's absolutely no lie!
The image shows a freediving Sandy that encounters a giant manta Birostris in the green waters close to the Peruvian coastline.
We were one of the very first to work together with local fishermen in the first phase of setting up marine ecotourism in Zorritos.
The NatGeo article stretches the importance of community based conservation that was and still is key in protecting these charismatic rays in the region.
Please find more of my images and the complete story from Peru in the following link!
