natgeo Photo by @jimmychin | Expeditions are often hurried, with multiple agendas and objectives. In this moment, we had finished most of our filming, shooting, and skiing objectives. It was just a time to be present and reflect on the intrinsic beauty of the west coast of Greenland. For more images of adventures in Greenland, follow @jimmychin.

Less than two percent of climbers summit Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen. #followme @coryrichards for the visual storytelling #onassignment for #natgeo and previously unseen footage of the #culture #travel #adventure of the #Himalayas including my upcoming climb on the northeast face of #everest as I attempt a new route without the use of supplemental oxygen.
natgeo Photo by @stevewinterphoto | A caiman eats a catfish in the Black Creek in Brazil's Pantanal region. The caiman is the No. 1 food source for jaguars in this area. When the rains are good in the Amazon and the rivers rise in the Pantanal, the animals are abundant, and jaguars have a huge food court of prey to choose from, as nature is all connected. The Amazon provides 20 percent of the oxygen we breathe, so we could say that every 5th breath is from the Amazon. Rainforests provide 40 to 50 percent of the oxygen on the planet; mountains, grasslands, and forests provide 75 percent of our fresh water. If we save the homes of big cats we can help save ourselves. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid

natgeo Photo by @simoncroberts | Grindelwald, Switzerland, March 2016. The Cliff Walk is a popular lookout platform rising 45 meters out over the Grindelwald Valley in the Jungfrau region. Visitors have been traveling to the area ever since the wealthy English set off on European grand tours in the 1800s. They hoped that Switzerland would inspire with its sublime vistas, and today the Swiss landscape often resembles a theater set, where tourists are transported to officially designated areas of natural beauty to gaze upon equally epic views of the Monch, Jungfrau, and Eiger mountains.

natgeo Photo by @beverlyjoubert | A fat belly full of food is not the most comfortable on an incredibly hot summer's day in Botswana. Digesting protein is a warm process, but spotted hyenas, like all carnivores, will not pass up on the chance to gorge themselves. Although they are excellent hunters and well known for scavenging, they can never be sure of the next meal. A bit of respite can be gained from dozing off in a pool of cool water. There won't be any need to move from this muddy wallow unless other predators turn up. #spottedhyena #wallow #Okavango
natgeo Photo by @enricsala | Spotted on our current @natgeopristineseas expedition to Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, this tiny harlequin shrimp is just one of the myriad species residing on the abundant corals of the Isla del Caño Biological Reserve. The Osa Peninsula is home to half of all the species in Costa Rica, and the waters around it harbor critical aggregations of sea turtles, sharks, whales, and dolphins. Follow along @natgeopristineseas as we study and document the marine ecosystems of Isla del Caño, the Drake Bay, Golfo Dulce, and along the Mesoamerican Trench, in partnership with @OsaConservation and @UniversidaddeCostaRica, and aboard the @UnderseaHunter vessel, the Argo. #CampaignforNature
natgeo Photo by Muhammed Muheisen @mmuheisen | The world’s only floating animal sanctuary in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. De Poezenboot, Dutch for "the catboat," hosts around 50 stray and abandoned cats, 17 of which are permanent residents that have lived on the boat for several years.

natgeo Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown | Children play football in the remote village of Obo, Central African Republic (CAR), located near the borders of South Sudan, to the east, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the south. Africa’s pole of inaccessibility, one of the toughest places on the continent to reach, is also near Obo. In 2017, after the U.S. and Uganda concluded counter-LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) efforts and began withdrawing special-forces soldiers from the region, Obo and other southeastern CAR communities were left largely unprotected. Since then, armed groups have carried out attacks on these communities, often targeting people based on their religious or ethnic identity or their livelihood.
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 Photo by @brentstirton | This #blackrhino lost its horn to #poachers in #Zimbabwe. They left the animal for dead with multiple AK47 bullet wounds. This bull recovered briefly and walked through the bush for nearly a week in unimaginable pain and confusion. There were maggots breeding in his face when he finally died. We all lost another severely endangered black rhino bull to this incident, further depleting the gene pool of a magnificent species that we are losing. It’s no secret that rhinos are severely endangered today, yet China recently declared that it will once again allow trading of rhino and tiger parts domestically after a 25-year ban. They say this is to accommodate “farmed animals” bred in China. There are many reports on those farms, none of them good. Issues of severe inbreeding, starvation, and other abuses are common. There are also many reports that wild animals fetch higher prices on the Chinese market. Any legalization of these animal products throws open large loopholes for the illegal trade, stimulating poaching against severely endangered animals in countries that feed the illegal wildlife trade flowing into China. This is a very disappointing decision on the part of #China, especially so soon after they agreed to ban their domestic #Ivory trade.
natgeo Photo by @CarltonWard | An ambitious red-shouldered hawk has caught a sizable dinner—likely a Florida water snake. I witnessed this moment at Buck Island Ranch, part of Archbold Biological Station, which directs research in order to better understand the intricacies of wildlife, water, cattle grazing, and carbon sequestration in the rangelands of the Northern Everglades. These lands are crucial to the Florida Wildlife Corridor and wide-ranging species such as the Florida panther. Shot during my #PathofthePanther storytelling project with @insidenatgeo.

natgeo Photo by @PaulNicklen | When you spend so much quality time both above and below the ice with charismatic and vulnerable species like emperor penguins, you get emotional when they are given protection. Several years ago, more than 650,000 square miles of the Ross Sea around Antarctica (an area the size of Spain and France combined) was protected under the Commission of the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (#CCAMLR), an organization that works to conserve and protect wildlife that inhabits the Southern Ocean. Marine protected areas remain one of the most crucial tools for sustaining ecosystem health and curbing #ClimateChange. Follow me at @PaulNicklen to see more of the work I have conducted in Marine protected areas throughout our planet.

natgeo Photo by @joelsartore | Teiku, a two-month-old jaguar cub, calls Parque Zoologico Nacional home, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Jaguars are most similar in appearance to leopards, but there’s nothing to confuse them with in the wild since no other big cats live in South America. The most distinctive feature of the jaguar is the shape of their spots, which resemble a certain sweet-smelling flower–the rose. To learn about incredible efforts to save this species in the wild and catch a glimpse of an adult jaguar, follow me @joelsartore.
natgeo Photos by @TimLaman | Who says penguins can’t fly? An Adélie penguin leaps from the water to catch a breath and check the shoreline as it approaches Devil Island in the Weddell Sea, Antarctica. See the story behind how I captured this photo @TimLaman.
This behavior, known as porpoising, is how penguins catch a breath without slowing down. Penguins actually “fly” underwater; unlike other seabirds that paddle with their feet, penguins power themselves with their small but powerful wings, thus flying through water. More @TimLaman from my recent shoot in Antarctica for @NatGeoExpeditions. #penguin #antarctica #TL_wildlifephototips
