Our friend National Geographic photographer Jeff Mauritzen has generously offered to take our Instagram community onboard with him this week as he travels through Panama and Costa Rica, as he leads a photo expedition aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion, documenting some of Central America’s most abundant and bio-diverse habitats! 

From Sunday, March 15th to Friday, March 20th, Jeff will be taking over the National Aquarium’s Instagram account with daily updates from the field. (For a refresher on Jeff’s previous takeover with us, click here.) 

Be sure to follow along as he shares his experience traveling through the region and encountering some of its many natural treasures!
