What’s in ISSUE ELEVEN?

the hunt

The grey reef sharks of Fakarava Atoll in French Polynesia are remarkable and numerous. Explorer Laurent Ballesta first encountered them in 2014 during his Gombessa II mission. Intrigued by their behaviour he has returned every year since. What has he learned?

chasing lightning

Baja California boasts some of the most biodiverse waters in the world, hosting a variety of migratory species throughout the year. As a result, it has become a hotspot for sportfishing, but at what cost?

connecting the dots

An 11-metre sailboat, Maewan IV, is making a 66,000km journey to reconnect the dots between wilderness and civilisation. What can Maewan's crew learn from the remote communities they visit? And, in turn, what wisdom can they leave behind?

for the love of reefs

A team of biologists from the California Academy of Sciences is working to better protect deep mesophotic reefs around the world. Their most recent Hope for Reefs mission took them to the Fernando de Noronha National Marine Park in Brazil.

white continent, dark future?

Drone photographer Florian Ledoux visits Antarctica to capture life from above. But what of life below the waterline, the basis of life on the continent? What does the future hold for the white continent, and what impact might that have on the rest of the planet?
