    Bigeye Trevally forming a "tornado" at Cabo Pulmo National Park, Mexico
. A few years ago, local fisherman decided to stop fishing and bet all on ecotourism. That bet was successful economically, socially, and ecologically speaking. What used to be an almost lifeless place now has a complete life chain, even bull sharks are back and orcas come and visit often. Cabo Pulmo is a true example that of the capacity or recovery that the ocean possesses, we just need to give it a chance for recovery.

    Powerful photograph, and magical atmosphere. The grainy, black and white is very dramatic. I love the relationship between the massive schools of trevally (showing that the environment is in good health) and the visitor from outer space (the land). It makes me feel humbled and in awe.
