πŸ“· & πŸ–‹οΈ by @craigparryphotography: "They seemed to crave attention and exuded curiosity. At one stage in the day, thinking the whales had disappeared, I casually looked below me expecting to see nothing but blue water. A metre below? A minke whale, stationary, staring back at me."β € β€’β € In Issue 09, photographer Craig Parry heads to the Ribbon Reefs with the Minke Whale Projec to discover more about the dwarf minke whale, a subspecies of the northern hemisphere minke. Based out of @jamescookuniversity, the MWP researchers rely on citizen science – photographers like Craig going out and capturing data about these elusive creatures.

How well did you do on Wednesday's #OceanQuiz? It was the curious eye of a dwarf minke whale, beautifully captured by @craigparryphotography. β € β€’β € More of his work features in Issue 09, where he writes about his extraordinary experiences photographing these stunning creatures in the Ribbon Reefs of the Great Barrier Reef with researchers from the Minke Whale Project. This organisation relies heavily on citizen-gathered data with the hope to understanding more about the mysterious cetaceans.β € β€’β € #minke #minkewhaleproject #minkewhale #whalemigration #whaleconservation #greatbarrierreef #cetacean #whale #citizenscience #underwaterphotographer #underwaterphoto

I think Gobys are my favourite fish to photograph 🀩 they stay so still and just stare at you with their big eyes! relying on their colours to blend in with the surroundings πŸ‘€

The deeply upsetting reality of the fishing industry from @ghostfishing A pregnant minke whale washed up in Orkney. Whilst much attention has been on plastic straws and bags, most of the plastic in the oceans is actually discarded fishing gear including nets. This is the unmentioned by product of eating fish on an industrial scale. On Monday @animal_rebellion George Monbiot renamed the sixth mass extinction, the first mass extermination. We are actively annihilating all other life around us and it won’t change by refusing a straw or using a reusable coffee cup if people can’t give up fish and seafood... #reality #uncomfortabletruth #govegan #fishing #fish #seafood #ecologicalemergency #fishingnets #blueplanet #whale #minkewhaleproject

Hello little guy πŸ‘‹ can anyone ID him for me? I found him burrowed in a tiny hole on a massive boulder coral. Amongst some Christmas tree worms πŸŽ„ I love finding and photographing all of the tiny critters you can find on the #gbrmarinepark !

πŸ‘€πŸŸ I wonder what fish think when they see us underwater?

A beautiful giant clam - filter feeders of the sea. An average sized giant clam can filter an Olympic sized swimming pool of water every 24 hours! I get mesmerised by their unique and colourful patterns 😍
