This is the largest egg farm in Brazil, which produces 2.7 million eggs a day from four million birds—all without the touch of a human hand. Both feed and eggs are moved via conveyor belts. From a biosecurity perspective, it’s safer for the birds that way. To explore more of our world, follow @geosteinmetz.
natgeo Photo by @BrianSkerry | A harp seal pup sleeps sheltered from the wind by an ice formation while it waits for its mother to return from a dive beneath the ice pack in Canada’s Gulf of St. Lawrence. The months of February and March are typically pupping season in this region, but thinning ice due to climate change over the last decade has caused problems for this species. Survival long term will require adapting to the loss of sea ice if these trends continue. Follow @BrianSkerry and get up close to marine wildlife. #seals #harpseals #ice #canada #climatechange
natgeo Photo by @iantehphotography | That Time. It doesn’t seem so long ago that I was in Saint-Malo, France, watching these children take exuberant flying leaps off a diving platform into the sea—their bodies striking dynamic poses while momentarily suspended, then hurtling through the air and into the cold water. Splash! It was another world and a different time, when crowds weren't considered a threat to one's health. And traveling didn't feel like a distant memory. How that has changed, at least for a while longer. That summer, when I toured this historic walled port on the northwestern coast of France—I can almost feel the sand beneath my feet and smell the salty air again. #halcyondays #precovid19 #stmalo #france
natgeo Photo by @andreabruce | Mayor Maria Patricia Arce Guzman, 48, of Vinto, Bolivia, was attacked during violent protests after the 2019 election. She believes she was targeted because she's a woman and because she supports female empowerment programs.
Take a look at the June 2020 issue and the story "Taking the Lead," for which I photographed the inspiring women of Bolivia, New Zealand, Iraq, and Afghanistan who have made huge gains in achieving political power, but still face cultural resistance, and even violence, as their influence increases. Story was written by Rania Abouzeid. Follow me @andreabruce for more photos and stories.

natgeo National Geographic long has told the story of the human journey, documenting both our successes and some of our darkest hours. This is one of those times when we need a bright light on truth. We remain committed to shining that light on the issue of race in America, exploring inequality and discrimination, and hope our storytelling can build understanding and help lead to justice.
These images were photographed by @waynelawrence for Nat Geo’s 2018 Race issue. We teamed up with ESPN’s The Undefeated to ask African Americans and Latinos across the U.S. what it’s like to be racially profiled during a traffic stop, and the ripple effect such incidents can have on families and communities.

natgeo Photo by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder | Datelle Straub, Avery Lewis, and Titan Harness-Reed arrive at the Minneapolis protest wearing their 2020 graduation caps and gowns from Patrick Henry High School. They had a virtual ceremony due to COVID-19. “Because of COVID we couldn’t walk the stage, so we decided to put our robes on to show that there is black excellence in our community. And we walked the streets as our stage and protested,” Straub said. When he saw police approaching, he lifted his diploma. “As we were walking, cops jumped out of a van and aimed their guns at me and my friends. And put a red dot on our chests. It’s just frustrating that they are OK with killing the future.”

Mayor Sayegh and the first lady are both survivors of the COVID-19 virus. Since the pandemic hit in March, they have recorded and broadcast a weekly show called "Silk City Story Time," in which to they read children’s books to residents.

natgeo Photo by @acacia.johnson | A brown bear nurses her cubs on the shore of Chinitna Bay, a renowned brown bear viewing area in Alaska's Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Here, large numbers of brown bears gather to graze on sedge grass, fish for salmon, and dig for clams–and people come from all over the world to watch them. But the bears are endangered by the proposed Pebble Mine, which would risk poisoning the ecosystem and involve a sprawling transport corridor within these bears' wandering ranges. Follow me at @acacia.johnson to learn more about protecting this remarkable wilderness. #alaska #brownbears #pebblemine

natgeo Photo by Trevor Frost @tbfrost | A green striped vine snake coils in the hands of a herpetologist at @hojanueva in the Peruvian Amazon. Snakes are more complex and intelligent than most of us think. Luckily science is beginning to show this. A new study published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology suggests garter snakes "are surprisingly social, forming 'friendships' with fellow serpents." One thing is for sure: we still have so much to learn about our world, especially the intelligence of nonhuman animals. Head over to @tbfrost to see more photos of snakes!
natgeo Photo by @pedromcbride (Pete McBride) | Silence is more memorable than the views. “The brush of bat wings in the morning over your head. The clatter of sheep hooves on the rock across the river. It sounds as if it’s close by, but it’s not,” says McBride. “And then you realize just how quickly that silence can be shattered." From the latest @natgeo interview about my new book on the Grand Canyon. To read more or learn more, follow @pedromcbride #grandcanyon #betweenriverandrim #silence #humility #petemcbride

natgeo Photo by Frans Lanting @franslanting | I’m sharing this image of a young orangutan in recognition of World Orangutan Day. He has reason to look distraught. Nearly half of all orangutans—a staggering 150,000, in all—vanished from Borneo in the past 15 years, due to destruction of their forest habitat and the impact of the wild pet trade. This orphaned young male was rescued and brought to a rehab center, but he won’t have much of a future unless we protect the forests all orangutans depend on for their survival. I welcome you to support the organizations that are on the front lines of helping orangutans, with public activities as well as covert operations aimed at busting wildlife criminals. @World_Wildlife and @WildAid need your help. And follow me @FransLanting for more encounters with endangered animals around the world.

natgeo Photo by Charlie Hamilton James @chamiltonjames I Blood drips from the beak of a Rüppell's griffin vulture in Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. Vultures are important to the eco-system as they consume and remove animal carcasses that could otherwise spread disease—in fact they consume more meat than all the other scavengers and predators combined on the plains of East Africa. They are in serious decline across most of their ranges due to habitat loss and poisoning. So let's have a little love for them.
natgeo Photo by @ladzinski | The face of a warrior. This lion is 11 years old, battle worn and still holding strong. He’s held a solitary pride on the fringe of Kruger National Park for the last 5 years. It’s a place rich with lions meaning he’s faced countless battles to retain his Royal position as king of his territory. For a lone male to accomplish this is no easy task and in his time he’s reared dozens upon dozens of cubs. His face is a badge of honor in the lion world, hieroglyphs displaying a history of violent life at the top of the food chain.
natgeo Photos by Charlie Hamilton James @chamiltonjames | Fires raged in the Brazilian Amazon during 2017 in Araribóia, indigenous territory in the state of Maranhão. Some were started by farmers trying to clear land for crops or cattle, others started to cover up illegal logging operations, and some were natural. When these images were shot, the Brazilian Amazon had just experienced its worst year on record for forest fires—now 2019 is likely to eclipse that. Maranhão, like so many other states within the Amazon, has been extensively logged, and just a few pockets of original forest remain. The rest of the land has been turned over to agriculture and cattle ranches. Within a few miles of where these pictures were taken live some of the last remaining uncontacted Awã people—made famous across the world a few weeks ago, when footage of them was released. The forests in Araribóia are protected by a disparate group of underfunded firefighters made up of brave and dedicated Guajajara tribe members, volunteers, and FUNAI (the National Indian Foundation) employees who take on fires, sometimes armed with nothing more than machetes.
natgeo Photo by Ken Geiger @kengeiger | Here, one might say that "simba" translates as "caution, speed bump ahead." But of course simba means "lion" in Swahili. This guy, after spending most of the day feasting on a kudu, decided to take his evening nap in the middle of the road. Speed limits in Kruger National Park are low, making wildlife safety the priority over tourist vehicles. #krugernationalpark #lion #SouthAfrica
