I hope you’ve enjoyed the coverage of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island. If you haven’t watched it, please check out all the episodes at natgeo.com/wildlife. For now, I’ll give South Georgia posting a rest! It was a special project to be a part of and I feel really lucky to have worked alongside so many awesome people. In the field, adventure cameraman @spono, camera assistant @e.ranney, our boat Captain Kirsten Neuschafer and her team from Pelagic Expeditions. In post production, series producer Muriel Soenens, editors Raul Santos and Rosalina Merrihue, graphics animators Victor Rijo and Jordan Lister, executive producer Thalia Mavros and the rest of her extraordinary team @thefront in the USA, the amazing final finishing team from Films@59 in the UK, composers Miguel Torres and Julio Revilla in Spain. Finally, I owe a massive thank you to the Government of South Georgia and the British Antarctic Survey for giving us such incredible access to the island. If you’re after more Wild_Life, we’re already on expedition to doing just that. Stay tuned!

Our fearless captain, Kirsten Neuschafer, guides our 50ft sailboat through a treacherous section of water between Bird Island and mainland South Georgia. Whether it was giant waves coming over the bow, the engine cutting out when the sails were down near to rocks or snowy sheathbills (a little white bird) pooing on the sails, nothing would faze her. Thanks Kerstin for keeping us safe! Pictured also in the frame is cameraman @spono and camera assistant @e.ranney who are also very cool humans. To see our adventure to South Georgia check out Episode 5 of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island at natgeo.com/wildlife.

Once factories of death, the abandoned whaling stations on the Island of South Georgia are now packed full of life. Fur seals, elephant seals and penguins, once hunted, now live amongst the ruins. This island is living proof that with protection and a lot of hard work, it is possible for wild places to come back from the brink. A big part of South Georgia’s resurrection is still missing though; watch this week’s episode of Wild_Life at Natgeo.com/wildlife to find out more!

Here’s a little tease Wild_Life: Resurrection Island, Episode 5. You can watch all 5 episodes now at natgeo.com/wildlife. This episode combines our adventure to the island with its fascinating history, and asks the big questions. From the era that spans Captain Cook’s discovery to the haunting whaling settlements, are we giving our wild places a second chance?

Drones are revolutionising the way we see the world. I couldn’t quite believe what I was seeing whilst flying at St Andrews Bay on South Georgia. Each one of these tiny dots on the beach is a king penguin. This beach is estimated to be home to over 400,000 king penguins. It’s hard to believe that in 1925, just 1,100 kings were counted here. This is what happens when environmental conditions are right and you protect a place. Hats off to the South Georgia Government and all the awesome NGOs that have contributed to this success story. This image was taken with special permission and a flight plan designed to ensure the penguins were not disturbed. If you plan to fly a drone around wildlife, please please do your research to make you’re not affecting your subject. Many species don’t show a behavioural change to drones but can still be under stress. Watch these penguins in action in Episode 4 of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island at natgeo.com/wildlife.

@spono and I filming Episode 4 of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island. The sensory overload of this beach is crazy. It’s unbelievable beautiful, stinky and you’re constantly bombarded with an auditory barrage of calling king penguins!

Teamwork and a cool piece of gear was key to getting shots of wandering albatros
Teamwork and a cool piece of gear was key to getting shots of wandering albatross flying out across the open ocean in Episode 3 of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island. You can watch the whole series at natgeo.com/wildlife. Given that our boat was rolling all over the place in the big swell, a gimbal was the only way to get a stable image. This clever gadget measures angular change in each of its 3 axes and then sends power to motors to correct for this change. The result means the camera stays flat and level whilst I can control pan/tilt with my right hand and focus/zoom with my left hand. Meanwhile, @e.ranney and Kerstin pictured at the top of the frame are making sure the whole thing doesn't go flying into the ocean. Normally we'd just hard mount the gimbal onto the boat but because we were getting the occasional wave over the bow, they had to be ready to whisk it under cover to avoid a salty electronic mess! Photo by @spono Also stoked that on Nat Geo WILD a one hour version of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island will premiere today, Thursday 25th October, at 10pm EST in the US (other countries announced soon).

Based on wingspan, the wandering albatross is the biggest bird on the planet. With this giant wingspan of more than 11ft, these birds are able to glide effortlessly over the waves for 1000s of miles in search of food. This huuuge wingspan also makes their courtship on land particularly impressive! We had the great honour of filming this spectacle with the British Antarctic Survey. This incredible organisation has been studying the wanderers on Bird Island for over six decades! Big thanks to @foxderren and the rest of the BAS Bird Island team for teaching me the art of albatross whispering. Check out Episode 3 of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island at natgeo.com/wildlife.
