The temperature is dropping 🥶. Is it cold where you are now?
This is a #tbt of when I visited the Devil's Den. Very cold water that made me freak out at the beginning when I was getting in 😂. Because of the temperature, the water vapor emerges from the surface of the river, forming a visible plume above the entrance of the cave. The first European settlers believed that it was a chimney from hell, therefore the name of the place.
It is said that animal and human remains have been found in the cave. If you have ever visited this place, have you found any fossils?? #devilsden#coldwaters#wildswimming#onebreath#freediving#gopro#cenote

정말 훌륭한 멘토를 만났습니다. 3일간 이제 국제심판이 되신 여러분들도 저도 많은 배움의 시간을 가졌습니다. 국제심판과정이 이렇게 실용적이고 재미있을 수 있구나 라는 것을 배웁니다. #디테일이명품을만듭니다 매일매일 더욱 가다듬고 발전해 나가겠습니다.
The Last Paradise, Raja Ampat — an island chain in Indonesia’s West Papua province — is world-renowned for its beautiful and unique marine biodiversity. But its marine mammals have not received much attention despite the fact that half of the 31 whale and dolphin species found in all of Indonesia — 16 different types — have been regularly observed there.
Whales play a key role in the health of marine ecosystems, from predator-prey interactions to fertilization through prodigious amounts of poop and upwelling of deep-sea nutrients. Across Raja Ampat, small dolphins are numerous; these predators influence fish populations, and at the same time they are preyed upon by large sharks and killer whales. Sperm, Baleen, and other large whales bring nutrients from their 3,000-meter-deep dives to the ocean’s surface, adding essential nutrients and supporting a healthy marine ecosystem.
In Raja Ampat, both sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) and Bryde’s whales (Balaenoptera brydei) are seen regularly and in great numbers; their role in the health of the marine ecosystem in Raja Ampat is profound.
