Famed photographer Paul Nicklen recently opened a gallery to display his magnificent photographs, which he hopes will help to raise awareness about climate change and ocean conservation. Paul is a marine biologist, National Geographic photographer, and co-founder of Sea Legacy, an organization whose goal is to tell stories about the oceans and promote conservation.

This image, “Ice Waterfall”, is one of my favorites; Paul took this photograph in 2014 in Norway when unprecedented 60 degree temperatures in Svalbard (500 miles from the North Pole) had caused extensive ice melt, sending fresh water over the ice cliffs and into the ocean.

Paul donates 25% of the profits from his photographs to Sea Legacy. The gallery will showcase the work of other conservation photographers in the future.
