So, couldn’t help myself. Talking about our Antarctica and South Georgia trip again got me back on editing penguins to  post. That and the fact that @natgeo just reached 100 million followers 🙌 
This one was feeling the vibe tonight for my most #natgeo inspired shot. Hope you like it! I’d love to get to Tanzania 🤞😉

Almost a year has passed since I was able to witness the majestic beauty of these birds.

South Georgia is one of those places on earth that you’ll never be able to forget regardless of how much time has gone by. What I would do to get back there!

On our last day on the Antarctic Peninsula, before setting out for Elephant Island, we spent an enjoyable afternoon whale watching and moseying around an iceberg garden near Portal Point. As difficult as it was to tear ourselves away from the nearby humpback whales, it was worth it for these views from the Zodiac. This is @laurenepbath sharing my last photo from my Instagram Takeover.

A gentoo penguin extends a flipper, stretching after a long morning of sitting on the nest. Images of giant colonies of king penguins stretching as far of the eye can see often lead to the assumption that all kinds of penguins experience the modern ecological luxury of large and stable populations.

Sadly, gentoo penguins do not share the luxury with kings and are among the many species around the world that are fighting an uphill battle for their share of an anthropocentric globe. Fish stocks in the Southern Ocean are increasingly over-exploited to feed the growing human population and keep pace with crazes for health products such as krill oil.

When humans are thrown into the mix of the ecosystem without considering the needs of other species, there is no longer enough food to go around and populations begin to collapse as humans crowd the ecosystem out. Gentoos have not experienced a full collapse yet, but their population declines are a canary in the mine that signals towards an entire ecosystem in danger. Measures are being taken to protect the sustainability of harvests in the region, but as long as consumer demand remains high, illegal fishing depletes the seas.

Among the most important lessons I have learned from traveling to some of earth's most remote places is this: though penguins, or polar bears, or rhinos may seem worlds away from most of our daily lives, the actions we take have impacts far beyond our field of view. It is a small world and each individual has the power and responsibility to keep that world spinning.

Good morning!! Omg, I’ve shared so many photos of penguins from Antarctica and South Georgia but I also wanted to show you some photos from the ship. This was shot as we were cruising from one part of South Georgia to another. The weather was WILD, we were rocking and rolling but everyone single person on board was up in the bridge watching this incredible light. Picture this: sun rays piercing the cloud, the ocean illuminated and seals diving and swimming alongside us. Heaven. @Aurora_Expeditions #AuroraExpeditions

Hi all, it’s @laurenepbath here again, continuing my week-long Instagram takeover of Aurora Expeditions. If there is anything more adorable than a baby fur seal pup then I’ve yet to see it, and that’s despite my extensive travels and wildlife encounters. One of the highlights of South Georgia was definitely seeing the babies at this age, twisting, squirming and gazing adoringly down my lens. Through much trial and error, I found that ground level shots showcased their cuteness to the maximum, if you try this make sure you are at a safe distance and set a scout to watch for any approaching wildlife.

Okay, almost enough time has elapsed that I can actually start to form cohesive thoughts around my experience at Gold Harbour. Also known as the most overwhelming photography experience of my life! I walked away barely knowing if I had a salvageable shot but later edited dozens of favourites. The best part of shooting here were the moments were I got to sit down on the beach, breathe deeply and watch the magic happening all around me. Penguins going out to fish, penguins coming in from fishing. Elephant seals rolling around in the sand and boisterous fur seals chasing intrepid guests up the beach. Giant petrels and skuas flying high, looking for vulnerable seals to target and albatross chilling on the shore break. It was an overwhelming overload for all the senses. @Aurora_Expeditions #AuroraExpeditions

This is @laurenepbath continuing my week-long Instagram takeover of Aurora Expeditions, and I thought I would share this shot from a very enjoyable afternoon spent on the water on the Danco Coast spotting humpback whales. I loved the icebergs that were spotted, of all shapes and sizes, as much as I loved the whales we spotted. Note, the Zodiac here was at a safe distance from the iceberg.

A notoriously blubbery southern elephant seal
@sylerpr

A notoriously blubbery southern elephant seal "weaner" rests on the shores of South Georgia island, looking out towards the vast Southern Ocean. Despite South Georgia's remote and rugged geography, as much as 54% of the world population of southern elephant seals are born on its shores. Come November, the beaches are filled with hundreds of "weaners" who get their nickname from the fact that they have just been weaned from their mothers' milk. Though penguins take the top spot for the silliest creatures in South Georgia, the "weaners" with their clogged noses, rude sound effects, and helplessly fat bodies take a close second. Having just been left by their mothers, it is not uncommon to find yourself surrounded by "weaners" looking hopefully up at you hoping that maybe you too can offer them some milk. With faces like these, it is difficult to imagine that the species was almost hunted to extinction for the oil in their blubber following Captain Cook's account of the island in the

Good morning!! Okay, so I keep saying this to myself, but I think this might be my favourite shot from Antarctica! This was the very first penguin that I saw on our very first excursion; a Zodiac cruise around Enterprise Island. Everyone in our Zodiac literally couldn’t believe their eyes when we saw her and there were delighted screams of “penguinnnnnnn 😱😱😱!”... Little did we know that we were about to see more penguins than our brains could process. But this little gal? She was the first. Even more special was that I resisted the urge to shoot a close up and instead managed to compose something with a beautiful iceberg in the back. 🐧❤️ There’s another penguin shot over at @Aurora_Expeditions today (I’m doing a takeover), which one is the best? #AuroraExpeditions .

After departing the Antarctic Peninsula, we set sail for South Georgia and had some amazing adventures there, including this afternoon spent at Gold Harbour. For me, the best part was seeing so much diversity of wildlife. In this shot you can see a Skua eyeing off a King Penguin chick, luckily, she is safely ensconced in a group of adults. This is @laurenepbath continuing my week-long Instagram takeover of Aurora Expeditions.

Okay, if you think that penguins are cute then you obviously haven’t seen ... BABY FUR SEALS!! During my cruise with Aurora Expeditions we did a really interesting 6km hike on South Georgia to recreate some of Shackleton’s epic journey. (I’m uploading a story about Shackleton here > @Aurora_Expeditions , if you’re interested?) When we disembarked the Zodiacs at Fortuna Bay we were besieged by dozens of baby seals, taking one step forward for every step we took back. They are the literal puppies of the sea and are understandably adorable. ❤️ Don’t forget that I’m also posting over at Aurora for my takeover, so if you can’t get enough of this place then check the photos at @Aurora_Expeditions as well. .

Hi again, it’s @laurenepbath continuing my Aurora Expeditions Instagram takeover and today I’m sharing one of my absolute favourite memories from onboard. This is the Lemaire Channel and it is truly one of the most stunning sights in Antarctica. Tall cliffs tower over an iceberg-filled passage and the views from any deck are exceptional. When I first came out of my cabin to see the views I was absolutely lost for words and the next hour passed in a blur as I worked my way through the ship shooting from every angle. #AuroraExpeditions
