New Images from Cuba's Enormous Marine Reserve
Making friends with Niņo, a 7-foot American Crocodile.

Marc Shargel spent more than two weeks in Cuba earlier this year. Entering the country is like stepping backward in time. The fish were big and old, benefitting from 22 years in a marine reserve. The crocodiles were bigger. And the taxis were older.

"I've seen a lot of changes in Central California's ocean since I began diving here in 1978. I first took a camera underwater in 1982. Since then I've been using images to communicate the beauty and fragility of our marine life to people who might otherwise never know about it."
