Video by @paulnicklen off the coast of vancouver island, british columbia, in the strait of georgia, billions of herring gather in the waters to spawn. with them arrives a huge influx of marine birds, orcas and the ⭐ of our story: steller sea lions. wildlife conservation photographer, cinematographer and co-founder of sealegacy (@sea_legacy ) paul nicklen (@paulnicklen ) is taking us on an underwater adventure to get up close and personal with these curious sea creatures. from his work in the strait of georgia to help people understand the importance of the salish sea and herring season, he knows firsthand just how playful the steller sea lions can be. (in his words, he’s felt like “a human chew toy.”) check out our instagram story to see paul and these pups in action.

Video by @ramune0123 hello, world! our #weeklyfluff is coming to you from japan: a pair of white pacific parrotlets named ramune and soda (@ramune0123 ), affectionately referred to as “tiny dinosaurs” by their human. though the parrotlet is one of the smallest birds in the parrot family, these two have a lot of personality to share, whether they’re learning a new trick (bowling!) or just enjoying a nice head-scratch. follow @ramune0123 to keep up with this feathered duo.

Video by @paulrabil when he was 12 years old, paul rabil’s (@paulrabil ) neighbor handed him a lacrosse stick. “i remember playing in my first game and taking my first shot,” says the american lacrosse player, who grew up in maryland and now plays professionally for new york and team usa. “i wasn’t any good, and the ball traveled in the opposite direction of where i was aiming. i remember feeling upset, but also invigorated by the challenge to improve.” now 32, “a year younger than lebron james,” he notes, paul’s passion never left. “hard work is defined by effort and endurance. the latter is the most difficult,” he says. “to be able to stay motivated, put in hours of training, make daily sacrifices and truly be passionate about what you do is rare. if you have it, go all in, and be prepared to commit years of your life to the journey.” check out our story to join paul on the field.

Photo by @weekend_wanderlust_ “whp🦄 inspired me to think outside the box,” says izzy berger (@weekend_wanderlust_ ), who spotted this flock of flying birds in the reflection of a puddle. “unicorns are usually associated with bright colors, but i wanted to maintain my photo style. when i saw this bird formation, i thought it would make a great unicorn horn. the rest was down to a lot of patience and good timing!”
