SeaLegacy cofounder and National Geographic wildlife photographer Paul Nicklen is among this year’s honorees that were appointed Members of the Order of Canada, which recognizes Canadians for “outstanding contributions at the local or regional level” in a specific field.

The SeaLegacy team of photographers and filmmakers is well known for capturing the beauty below the surface as well as the threats the ocean faces. Through these stories, the organization works to identify practical and policy solutions to protect at-risk geographies and threatened species, building a global network of supporters and activists to bring about change. The organization’s campaigns include efforts to put an end to whaling, banning drift nets, developing and promoting sustainable shark tourism practices, and protecting habitats in places as diverse as the Arctic, Antarctica, Cuba’s Gardens of the Queen, and Indonesia’s West Papua province.

In a Facebook post, Nicklen wrote: “I never dreamt of getting such a recognition but it really is a great honour and one I will always cherish. This recognition will be put to good use as I will use this platform to speak even louder than ever before about the issues that are close to my heart.”
