Cristina Mittermeier is a contributing photographer, speaker, and explorer for National Geographic. She is the Founder and President of SeaLegacy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the protection of the world’s oceans through storytelling with her partner, Canadian photographer Paul Nicklen. She founded the prestigious International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) to provide a platform for photographers working on environmental issues.

Cristina has received the Smithsonian Conservation Photographer of the Year Award and been named one of National Geographic’s 2018 Adventurers of the Year. She is also the first female photojournalist to reach one million followers on Instagram.

We talk about:

- swimming in icy Norwegian waters with orcas

- floating beside an American crocodile in Cuba

- the heartbreaking video of a starving polar bear that she filmed last year

- and what it truly will take to save our oceans
