Photograph by @thomaspeschak Charles Darwin called marine iguanas ‘Imps of Darkness’ and was not a fan of these, as he called them ‘disgusting and clumsy’ lizards. I on the other hand became completely smitten with these underwater algae munching Godzilla impersonators. They quickly became my favorite underwater photo subject. Dependent exclusively on cold water marine algae, increases in sea temperature have detrimental effects on marine iguana populations. If temperatures continuo to warm, these Galapagos icons could become the first to disappear. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for a forthcoming story on Climate Change and the Galápagos Islands. In collaboration with @darwinfound #galapagosnationalpark @pelayosalinas and @ecuadortravel For more images you can follow photographer @thomaspeschak
