|Today, Skerry logged another hour underwater inside the Aquarium's Giant Ocean Tank. Skerry serves as the Aquarium's Explorer-in-Residence since he has such a unique window on our aquatic world.|
Working for over 15 years at the magazine, Skerry has produced more than 20 lead articles with mesmerizing images of vast seascapes and poignant glimpses of fish swimming inside abandoned soda cans or heart-breaking moments with whales, sharks and dolphins, snarled in nets that threaten their lives.

After a 10-month, $17.3 million top-to-bottom transformation of the Giant Ocean Tank, the Aquarium is now home to more than 2,000 aquatic animals from 140 different species, making it one of the most bio-diverse in the world. Since Skerry is an accomplished traveler who has seen coral reefs all over the world from the pristine to the damaged, he will brought unique perspective into the tank, where he observed and photographed with his underwater gear the coral reef, which re-opened on July 1.
