natgeo Photo by Gabriele Galimberti @gabrielegalimbertiphoto | From my project about fathers. Switzerland–Jason, 39, Juliette, 10, and Lenny, 7. Jason was born in Vevey, Switzerland, a very nice, small city on the eastern shore of Lake Geneva. Since he was 12, he has loved skateboarding and skiing. Around ten years ago, he opened his first skateboard shop. Now he owns two shops, one in Lausanne and one in Geneva. He loves to go skateboarding with his children and they love it too. His son, Lenny, also has a passion for climbing and his daughter, Juliette, for hip-hop dance. Every Wednesday he's off from work, and so he spends the whole day with his children. “During the summer, on hot days like today, we love to take our skateboards and ride from home to this canal, then jump into the water to cool off,” he says. I’ve recently turned 40, and almost every friend around me has become a parent over the last few years. A couple friends and I are the only ones in our group who still don’t have kids of our own. I naturally began to observe how the others were raising their children. I watch them playing together and hear the arguments and the kids’ complaints at mealtimes or at bedtime. I’ve often been the one in charge of the kids when those moments happen. Maybe, just maybe, these things are making me start to want to be a father. That is why I’ve decided to make the relationships between fathers and their children the focus of this photo project. Wherever I am in the world, when I meet a father I ask him to tell me about a special moment he has spent with his children and, when I can, I photograph them together. #father #fathers

natgeo Photo by Hannah Reyes Morales @hannahreyesmorales | A gray day out at sea was lit up by this spear fisherman. I've met some remarkable small-scale fisherfolk out here in the islands of the Philippines. For our archipelago, located in the center of the world's marine biodiversity, fishing is a way of life for many coastal communities. They know the language of the sea, they help scientists identify species of fish, they understand weather patterns intimately by looking out into the horizon. They are also among the first to witness the devastation happening in our oceans. Follow me @hannahreyesmorales for more stories from the #Philippines, and beyond. #Surigao #fishing
natgeo Photo by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder | It was recently announced that U.S. President Trump's Treasury Department is banning cruise ship travel between the United States and Cuba, walking back the previous administration's relaxation of travel restrictions between the two countries. In 2016, I went on assignment for @natgeo on the first American cruise ship to dock in Cuba for nearly 40 years. Here, a passenger aboard the Adonia looks out over the water, sailing towards Cienfuegos, Cuba. To see more from Cuba, follow me @dguttenfelder and read the full story in the November 2016 edition of @natgeo.

These creatures actually help facilitate the migration of other smaller grazing animals across Tanzania. Over two million animals, including gazelles, wildebeests, and zebras make this migration every year.

natgeo Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | Andean flamingos dot the shallow waters of Bolivia's Laguna Colorada (elevation 14,000 feet), colored pink due to natural hot springs that provide nutrients for red algae to bloom. The birds have specially adapted beaks to feed on diatoms and algae less than one millimeter in diameter. #lawnornaments To see the beauty of our world from above, follow @geosteinmetz
natgeo Photos by Lucas Foglia @lucasfogliaphoto | How do you save a rainforest? Create a national park, many conservationists would say. What if you’re a nation with 45 million acres of rainforest—an area about the size of Washington State—and a per capita income of just over $8,000 a year. “A tree left standing is not valuable to a family who can’t feed their children three square meals a day,” says Pradeepa Bholanath, head of planning and development for the Guyana Forestry Commission. With the help of international donors, Guyana is pioneering an approach to protecting the trees that cover more than four-fifths of its surface. To make the rainforest last, it’s using it up slowly. As of now, the only road that transects Guyana’s rainforest is mostly unpaved and often impassable during the rainy season.
natgeo Video by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | Found in lowland forests in northeastern New Guinea, the Edward’s fig parrot relies on its predominantly green plumage to help it blend in among the dense vegetation. As its name implies, this species loves to consume figs as well as a variety of other fruits. To see a still image of this vibrant bird, follow me, @joelsartore.

natgeo Photo by Jimmy Chin @jimmychin | Josh Huckaby drops in on the 3,000-foot granite wave of El Cap during production of @freesolofilm. When Josh isn’t motoring around Indonesia on a motorcycle with his surfboard searching for some shade, he’s climbing El Cap or working with Yosemite Search and Rescue. We were lucky to have him as our rigger and safety consultant on the production.

natgeo Video by Ami Vitale @amivitale | Mia and Emilka are best friends. Mia, the kitty, had her tail bitten off by a different rhino when she was a little thing. But she persisted, kept her heart open, and one day found true love with a rhino named Emilka at Dvur Kralove @safariparkdvurkralove in the Czech Republic. Mia and Emilka look forward to seeing each other every day. It's beyond sweet.
@safariparkdvurkralove is the same place where the last northern white rhinos came from for their transfer to Kenya's @olpejeta Conservancy. The people here have been instrumental in saving species from the brink of extinction. ️️️Learn how you can get involved by following @amivitale @safariparkdvurkralove & @olpejeta

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 Tim Laman @timlaman | Birds of paradise have a reason to celebrate this year on Earth Day: the Province of West Papua, where 16 of the 40 birds of paradise are found, has declared its commitment to set aside 70% of the land as protected forest! Swipe to see four of the species found only in West Papua, Indonesia: Vogelkop superb, red, Wilson’s, and western parotia. See more @TimLaman as we celebrate this Earth Day! Birds of paradise are the global ambassadors for conservation of the forests of Papua. #conservationprovince #TanahPapua #papua #Indonesia #birdofparadise @BirdsofParadiseProject
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

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 @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 @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.
