Seven Pillars ~ Under starlight, the lunar-like surface of Wadi Rum, winds that sweep away all traces of time, tire marks in the sand that have long vanished, the grandeur of Seven Pillars overseeing this landscape of history.

1542888772395183765_787132 - Video by @joelsartore | A critically-endangered female northern white-cheeked gibbon named Polly at the @EndangeredPrimateRescueCenter in Cuc Phuong National Park, Vietnam. She was a youngster, and instead of sucking her thumb, she actually sucked on her big toe during our photoshoot.
Because they are hunted for meat, used in traditional “medicines” and sold into the illegal pet trade, Northern white-cheeked gibbons’ main predators are humans. Their forest habitats in China, Vietnam and Laos are steadily being destroyed as logging continues, causing their populations to diminish along with it. In fact, there hasn’t been a Northern white-cheeked gibbon sighting in China since the 1990s. 
The Endangered Primate Rescue Center is a not-for-profit project dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, breeding, research and conservation of Vietnam's endangered and critically endangered primate species. Their final aim is to reintroduce and release these animals as stable family groups into well-protected natural areas.

Hundreds of BASE jumpers from all over the world are here celebrating the Art of human flight. Absolutely amazing to see what people can do when they put their heart and mind into it.

1542270325583825044_787132 - Photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. Happy #WorldGiraffeDay! The giraffe population has plummeted more than 40 percent over the past 30 years. To make matters worse, scientists know relatively little about giraffe behavior. But a group of scientists and wildlife experts are working to untangle the mystery behind these animals' rapid decline. In early June, I followed a group from the San Diego Zoo Global (@sandiegozoo), the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (@giraffe_conservation) and the Northern Rangelands Trust (@nrt_kenya) as they worked to collar and tag 11 giraffe in the Loisaba (@loisaba_conservancy) and Leparua Conservancies in Northern Kenya.

Despite his incredible tail fan, the peahens just didn't seem interested. It's amazing to think that this male will shed and a grow a new fan each year, all in the name of reproduction!

1542199355888272894_787132 - @natgeo @stevewinterphoto

BOOM!!!!!! Look at this sequence of a jaguar swimming, diving and hunting after a caiman on the banks of the pantanal river, Brazil! This was shot as part of my worldwide @natgeo jaguar story (it comes out December 2017!). Jaguars are the most incredible swimmers and are very comfortable in water! We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals like this jaguar have emotions too. If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.

We need to fight for the right of jaguars to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice! “When the buying stops, the killing can too” #wildaid
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families, 
they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. 
They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. The forests and grasslands of big cats give us 50% of our oxygen and 75% of fresh water. If we can save big cats we can help save ourselves!

Approximately one in a thousand fur seals are born as ‘blonde' variants. The Antarctic fur seal was very heavily hunted in the 18th and 19th centuries for its dense fur by sealers from the United States and Great Britain. By the early 20th century, the seal was regarded as commercially extinct, and perhaps completely extinct. Today, their numbers have returned to near historic numbers. We as humans are capable of doing great harm but we are also capable of great compassion. #follow me on @paulnicklen to see my favorite images from #antarctica. #nature #naturephotography #naturalhair #gratitude #greatness #MPA #explore

1542117107675667919_787132 - Video by @joelsartore | Two Limosa harlequin frog at the Panama @AmphibianRescue and Conservation project in Gamboa. These frogs are a part of a study to better understand the influencing factors that determine the survival of frogs that are bred in human care and then released back into the wild. Recently, ninety Limosa harlequin frogs were given tiny numbered tags and glow in the dark markings in order to differentiate them from other frogs in the wild. Smithsonian researchers then sent them into the wild as a part of their first-ever release trial. The goal is to gain knowledge about the lives of human bred frogs in the wild so that programs can provide the most promising futures for them in the wild.
To see a portrait of these two, check out @joelsartore!

Pictured, a group of people celebrate Sonnwendfeuer, or midsummer atop the Nordkette mountain near Innsbruck, Austria. Across the Alps at this time of the year, bonfires and torches light up the night in celebration. Happy Solstice one and all!

With very little in terms of economic activity and fewer than 100 speakers of the Yimas language left, it is not surprising that women have very little power. If we want to solve the big issues of our generation, like Climate Change, we need to make sure that the 50 percent of the population of the planet who is currently disenfranchised to participate in the solutions, is empowered. This week I join my @natgeo fellow @storyteller and amazing photographer the talented @amivitale to speak on behalf of natgeo at @thegirlslounge; the largest community of corporate women who connect, collaborate and activate change together to empower women around the globe.

1541707816896394284_787132 - @FransLanting Look at this black rhino calf—frisky and curious, ears pointing my way as I watch its mother laboriously raising herself. Only one of her ears is pointing in my direction. The other one is checking what is happening behind her. Rhinos rely on their sharp sense of hearing and an acute sense of smell to make up for not seeing very well. In Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater, they’re relatively protected, but that is not the case for most rhinos elsewhere in Africa and Asia. They’ve been hammered by poachers, and it’s more important than ever to draw attention to their plight, and to the people and organizations that are trying to turn things around, including the World Wildlife Fund, Save the Rhino, and WildAid. Help them help rhinos survive.

1541631179613962716_787132 - Barrier Canyon Style paintings, San Rafael Swell, Utah video by @salvarezphoto (Stephen Alvarez) "What do these images mean?" That is the question people most ask. What do they mean? The only honest answer is "we don't know." These images are likely 2,000 years old or older and their meaning may well be lost to time. But the delicate paintings on the roof of an alcove in the San Rafael Swell are clearly a story. Their ambiguousness meaning adds to the mystery. It increases our curiosity and maybe gives the images even more power.
What does it mean? I don't know, but I do know that images, stories as beautiful as these are worth preserving and sharing. This video is extracted from a  3D model that I made for my @ancientartarchive project. The aim of the project is to help explore and preserve our common visual heritage. Our ancestors wrote their story -our story- on rock and cave walls across the world.

A young refugee listens as her grandmother, Reyhan Kerimova, talks about her life in the village of Taxta Korpu in Aghjabadi, Azerbaijan on May 28, 2013. 13,000 refugees originally from Lachin in Nagorno-Karabakh fled their homes between 1988 and 2012 as a result of the armed conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. By the time a ceasefire agreement was signed, an estimated 30,000 people had been killed and more than 700,000 internally displaced. More than 25 years later her family still lives in a dug out under ground. #WorldRefugeeDay #RefugeeDay #AChildIsAChild #refugee #Azerbaijan #solidarity

1541500571101269085_787132 - Photo by @jimrichardsonng #Sponsored by @HillsPet | Coming ashore on Shapinsay, one of Orkney’s long, low, meandering islands, we were met by a greeting party — the island cat. The sea was almost as calm as the calico, who paced up and down (prancing really), waiting for adoration, knowing that it was the essential part of a very pretty scene. Island hopping in Scotland has its rewards, sometimes spectacular, but often just small moments like this. See more photos of cats around the world in our Instagram Story.
