Tan-Awan, Philippines, Sept. 30. A fisherman fed whale sharks in Tan-Awan, a small town in Cebu. Hand-feeding keeps the gentle giants around for the benefit of tourists, a practice denounced by conservationists. - Hannah Reyes Morales for The New York Times
Manhattan Beach, Calif., Feb. 21. Kimiko Russell-Halterman, who is Black, Japanese and white, is among a growing number of Black and mixed-race female surfers who are finding community thanks to their shared reverence for the ocean. - Gabriella Angotti-Jones for The New York Times
Buxton, N.C., March 10. Sandbags offered some protection as waves lapped at homes in the Outer Banks. In 2018, the town paid to rebuild its beach to counter a rising ocean, but most of the sand has washed away. - Erin Schaff/The New York Times
Orleans, Mass., Aug. 20. Swimmers remained oblivious as a white shark patrolled Nauset Beach. The waters around Cape Cod have become host to one of the densest seasonal concentrations of adult white sharks in the world. - Tyler Hicks/The New York Times
