WWF commissioned Jürgen (Yogi) & Stella Freund - an award-winning husband and wife underwater photographer team - for a 18 month photo-expedition to capture some of the amazing sights of the Coral Triangle and to document some of the important work that WWF does there.

As you read this, Jürgen and Stella are somewhere in the middle of the ocean, on the hunt for yet another breath-taking photograph of a flamboyant lionfish, a graceful marine turtle, or a fisherman cleaning his sustainable fishing nets. You can follow their photo-adventures by visiting their expedition blog: http://blogs.panda.org/coral_triangle
