There are more than 400 species of sharks in our big blue ocean, so if you were a shark, what kind would you be? How about a tiger Shark, or a bull shark, or a blue shark? What about a whale shark, a hammerhead, or a so-called 'walking' shark? Our teams found this unique species using its fins to move along the ocean floor in the highly biodiverse Bird's Head Seascape of Indonesia several years ago. | Through our Seascapes partnerships, and our support of Marine Managed Areas, CI is working to protect all sharks and their ecosystems so that these apex predators can continue to thrive as they have for millions of years, and provide their critical benefits to the ocean and to people. http://www.conservation.org/sharks Follow CI on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/ConservationOrg Follow CI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/conservation.intl

Dulce — A Short Documentary
In the coastal village of La Ensenada, Colombia, where digging for shellfish is a way of life, everyone must learn to swim eventually — even little Dulce. But as the effects of climate change begin to threaten the village's livelihood, the carefree swimming lessons led by Dulce's mother take on a sense of urgency.

Nature Is Speaking
Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.
That’s the message of our provocative, celebrity-studded campaign “Nature Is Speaking.” Our aim is to raise awareness that people need nature in order to survive. Our goal is simple: It’s time to change the conversation about nature to focus on what we all have in common: Our shared humanity.
