natgeo Photo by Anastasia Taylor-Lind @anastasiatl // Sponsored by @always_brand // Amelia sits in her bedroom, which she shares with two sisters and her niece, in Katlehong, South Africa. Amelia is at the top of her class, and she is very confident and motivated. She is just beginning puberty and hasn’t started menstruating, but she is very knowledgeable and feels prepared for it when the time comes. “I want to be a doctor. Your body is yours. This body is mine—nobody owns it,” she said. // Every day, all over the world, millions of girls miss school because they lack resources to navigate the onset of menstruation. @always_brand provides puberty education & period products to girls around the world to help keep them confident #LikeAGirl & focused on getting an education. Together we can #EndPeriodPoverty!

natgeo Photo by Anastasia Taylor-Lind @anastasiatl // Sponsored by @always_brand // Boikarabelo lives in Soweto, South Africa. She told me that her favorite subject is math and that she'd like to be a lawyer. "I like to stand for up other people," she said. Boikarabelo also taught me about the seven B’s: “Books Before Boys, Because Boys Bring Babies." Her mother, Nomkululeko, didn’t have access to disposable pads when she was growing up and no one educated her about menstruation. At the time, she was unaware that girls could get pregnant after their periods came. // Every day, all over the world, millions of girls miss school because they lack resources to navigate the onset of menstruation. @always_brand provides puberty education & period products to girls around the world to help keep them confident #LikeAGirl & focused on getting an education.

natgeo Photo by Anastasia Taylor-Lind @anastasiatl // Sponsored by @always_brand // On an overcast morning, schoolgirls attending Thabotona Primary School in South Africa perform a traditional dance. Menstruation is a taboo topic in poor South African communities, and girls often start menstruating with little information about what’s happening, leading to fear and a lack of knowledge about how to safely manage their cycles. Teachers in South Africa say they do not always feel it is their role to teach girls about menstruation, nor do they have the skills to do so. The cost of period products proves to be a hindrance for many girls in poor communities, but citizens are trying to overcome that obstacle. In 2010, the ANC Youth League started appealing to the government for free sanitary pads in schools, and the movement gained momentum when then President Zuma promised to expand access to sanitary pads a few months later. Many years have passed, but there is still no federal policy or infrastructure put in place to provide free sanitary pads. // Every day, all over the world, millions of girls miss school because they lack resources to navigate the onset of menstruation. @always_brand provides puberty education and& period products to girls around the world to help keep them confident #LikeAGirl & focused on getting an education.

natgeo Photo by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | It doesn’t take long before you feel as though you’re being transported to another dimension while staring into the eye of this pied mossy frog. A patchwork of ornate textures and patterns helps camouflage it, giving it a unique look that seems out of this world. Follow me, @joelsartore to see more.

natgeo Photo by Fritz Hoffmann @fritzphotos | The Tibetan horse racing season is approaching. At the Maqu Gesar races in the Gannan Tibetan prefecture in Gansu, China, a nomad leads a horse across grass fields littered with prayer notes on the way to the race track. To send the prayer notes to higher places, the notes are placed in helium filled balloons, which are let go to rise to the heavens. This week I'm posting pictures from races past, longing to be there myself. Please check out my feed at @fritzphotos #FritzHoffmann #MaquHorseRaces #MaquGrasslands #TibetanHorseFestival #Gannan

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 To explore more images of the #Africa follow @KenGeiger

natgeo Photo by Paolo Woods and Gabriele Galimberti @paolowoods and @gabrielegalimbertiphoto I Gary S. Settles is a mechanical and nuclear engineer and distinguished professor emeritus at Penn State University in Pennsylvania. He has conducted extensive research on fluid dynamics and flow visualization, and has become a specialist of Schlieren. Schlieren is a process that uses a curved mirror to visualize the flow of air and fluids of varying density. Invented by the German physicist August Toepler in 1864, it is widely used in aeronautical engineering to photograph the flow of air around objects. In this case, he's demonstrating the turbulence caused by hot air from a candle in his lab in State College. This effect is not visible to the naked eye, but Leonardo da Vinci understood that turbulence in the air is similar to turbulence in fluids, a concept that he had intensely studied and that deeply obsessed him.

natgeo Photos by Kirsten Luce @kirstenluce | Fantastical portraits with captive wild animals—including bears and wolves—are a big trend in Russia at the moment. Most of the photographers rent the same bear, named Stepan, for the shoots and advertise through Instagram. These models were posing as part of a workshop for aspiring photographers to get their own shots of the bear for their personal Instagrams. Individuals can also hire these photographers to shoot them with the animal of their choice, like the last photo of an 18-year-old girl from Moscow who dreamed of having her photo taken with wolves. For the June 2019 issue of National Geographic, writer @natashaldaly and I traveled the world to learn about captive wildlife tourism. Our intention is not to shame tourists or photographers who have had these encounters but to arm our readers with information that will help them identify potentially exploitative situations for animals.

natgeo Photo by Robin Hammond @Hammond_Robin | I am not a war photographer, but several times while documenting mental health in Africa I found myself in the middle of a conflict. When I arrived in Mogadishu in 2011, the front line ran down one of the main streets. This photo is from a former psychiatric hospital close to the fighting. The foreign, nongovernmental organization running it had left. A Muslim cleric took over, and here he recites verses of the Quran through a blowhorn, in an attempt to heal patients. The World Health Organisation @WHO has said 1 in 3 Somalis live with a mental health condition. After decades of war, famine, and displacement this can hardly be a surprise. May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Photographers can raise awareness, but I wonder how useful that is if it does not lead to action. On the campaign website www.onedayinmyworld.com you can read about my own struggle with this question. To see more from the project (and to find a link to that story) follow @onedayinmyworld

natgeo Photo by Charlie Hamilton James @chamiltonjames I Spinner dolphins hunt for sardines and lantern fish in the clear Pacific waters off Costa Rica. Spinners form huge pods of up over 1,000 individuals. They are known as spinner dolphins because they spin (up to 5.5 times) as they leap from the water. Shot two days ago on assignment for @natgeo for a story on Costa Rica's Osa Peninsular, with @osaconservation @uwrealm and @pstalks. In order to protect places like this, we need to conserve 30% of the planet by 2030. #CampaignforNature
