natgeo Photo by Trevor Frost @tbfrost | Meet Keanu, a one-year-old male ocelot destined for the illegal wildlife trade before being rescued by @hojanueva. There, Keanu is being reintroduced, or re-wilded, by Harry Turner and Sam Zwicker on 5,000 acres of protected rainforest along the Las Piedras River in the Madre de Dios region of Peru. To see videos of Keanu learning to become a wild cat, go to @tbfrost

natgeo Photo by Babak Tafreshi @babaktafreshi | The summer Milky Way is seen in the starry skies of Yellowstone National Park, far from the vanishing glow of city lights. An icon of conservation, the park is located in the states of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. In 1872 it became the world's first designated national park. Native Americans have lived in the region for at least 11,000 years. While an aurora is occasionally visible on the horizon from this latitude, the green patches here are not the northern lights. They are an atmospheric phenomenon called airglow, colorless to the eyes but not to the camera. The waterfall and the trees are softly illuminated during this single 20-second exposure.

natgeo Photo by Carlton Ward Jr. @carltonward | Illuminated by a full moon in July, Chris Green of the Seminole tribe rides out before dawn to gather a herd of cattle at the Big Cypress Reservation. In addition to protecting crucial habitat for the Everglades and Florida Wildlife Corridor, the Seminole tribe’s ranches keep alive centuries of heritage connected to the land in wild Florida. I have been focusing on Florida ranches for my #PathofthePanther project because they are essential to a statewide network of public and private lands that make up the Florida Wildlife Corridor. The Florida panther and other wide-ranging wildlife cannot survive on public lands alone, but ranches providing critical habitat are rapidly being converted to suburban sprawl that fragments habitat and increases conflicts between humans and wildlife.

natgeo Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto | China boasts some of the world's most spectacular underground landscapes. Several of the largest cave chambers ever discovered are located in China, and probably many more are there, lying in total darkness just waiting to be found. This photo of the entrance passage of Quankou Dong, near the town of Tongzi, leads through to one of those mighty chambers, Cloud Ladder Hall. This shows the view back toward the towering entrance and the main river passage, where we see thick beds of limestone that are visible high in the roof of the cave.

natgeo Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | “El Candelabro” was made by a pre-Inca people, and the original meaning of the geoglyph is unknown. It was engraved on the downwind side of the Paracas Peninsula, where the dew-soaked surface stabilizes this sandy etching of the ancients and the careless footprints of tourists. As seen from a paramotor. To view more of our world from above, follow @geosteinmetz.
natgeo Video by David Chancellor @chancellordavid | After a Samburu wedding in northern Kenya, a quieter journey home. As the moran (warriors) of the Samburu move into the next stage of their lives, it's vital that they have access to health care and family planning. By integrating these along with ecological awareness through education, the following could result: A decline in the number of unwanted pregnancies and infanticides; lower child/infant mortality; and fewer girls dropping out of school due to pregnancy. Plus, natural resources can be distributed more equitably—a smaller family puts less pressure on an already stressed ecosystem; water sources remain more readily available for both human, wildlife, and livestock consumption; degraded environments are given a better chance of recovery; and human-wildlife conflict and poaching could be reduced. By improving the quality of life for these communities, and as a result, reducing human/wildlife population pressures, indigenous flora and fauna have a better chance to rebound, and there’s a reduced risk of conflict and poaching of endangered and vulnerable species, including elephant, lion, cheetah, African wild dog, black rhino, Grévy's zebra, hirola antelope, and others.

natgeo Photos by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | Rays of light: Marine wildlife tourism is a large draw for visitors to Hawaii’s shores, which is a boon for the economy but can cause problems for animals if proper steps aren’t taken. Tour operators must follow strict rules to protect manta rays during night snorkeling/diving outings because participants use underwater lights to attract plankton in high concentrations, and the rays follow to find food. As a result, boats must refrain from lighting hulls to keep the rays from swimming into ladders, rudders, propellers, or divers, which have been known to cause serious injury. It is best to research the right tour operator to ensure you aren’t inadvertently injuring the wildlife you are marveling to see. For more wild places, follow @pedromcbride. #moonlight #mantaray #Hawaii #tourism #underwater

natgeo Photo by Tasneem Alsultan @tasneemalsultan | Just before the bride makes her entrance into a ballroom filled to the brim with female guests to a majestic song, curated especially for her, women working at the wedding will hold a traditional incense burner to pass bakhoor (scented chips or blocks) among the guests. This is done as a gesture of hospitality. Her guests, having waited a couple of hours to congratulate her, will witness her regal entrance into the hall. #wedding #riyadh #saudiarabia

natgeo Photo by Keith Ladzinski @ladzinski | Tree roots are exposed and carved out from extraordinary high water levels on #lakeErie. The Great Lakes are presently experiencing the highest water volumes in documented history, resulting in overtly apparent erosion and flooding in towns and wilderness areas along the shores. #onassigmnent for @natgeo

natgeo Photo by Michaela Skovranova @mishkusk l Underwater universe: these glimmering lights became our night sky as we sailed the Antarctic peninsula. In summer here, days rapidly get longer until eventually the sun doesn't set at all. This phenomenon is called the midnight sun. #Antarctica #underwater #antarcticaunderwater #nature #ocean
