Mont Pelée is the island's prominent volcano and last erupted in 1902, destroying Saint-Pierre and killing over 28,000 people in 2 minutes! 🇲🇶

Remembering strangely pleasant moments while on past @natgeo assignment at a simple hotel in Sumatra, Indonesia.

natgeo's Media: Photograph by @thomaspeschak A scalloped hammerhead cruises past a school of steel pompano on a rocky reef in the northern Galápagos Islands. Warmer sea temperatures can lead to higher parasite loads in sharks and also cause infections, visible as white patches on their flanks below the dorsal fin. These hammerheads are normally skittish but the need to visit cleaning stations serviced by various reef fish (they remove and feed on the shark's parasites) trumped any shyness. They completely ignored my presence and allowed me to record visual evidence of skin infections in dozens of hammerheads. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for the June 2017 story Galápagos: Life in the Balance. In collaboration with @darwinfound @saveourseasfoundation @pelayosalinas #galapagosnationalpark and @ecuadortravel #photooftheday #sharks #climatechange

natgeo's Media: Floating effortlessly above the stormy waters of Lake Ontario a kaleidoscopic sphere of perfection defies time. Every fragile second of its existence warping reality–a circle leading back to place of youth and friendships unbroken. Then past, present and future collapse, the gate to another dimension closes—yet it remains more extraordinary than reality, a memory. Photo by @kengeiger

Rodrigo Medellin (aka the “batman of Mexico”, @rodrigomedellin1223) trained it to fly across a flight cage on cue. For a behind the scenes look at carnivorous bat training, check out my feed @anandavarma.

A pride of lions takes a stroll on one of Tswalu Kalahari Reserve’s dirt roads. Do you know that lions can live in a variety of habitats ranging from deserts, moist savannas and grasslands? But they need prey and big prey! Lions usually snack on species such as zebra, wildebeest, Cape buffalo, kudu and even giraffe. That’s the price you have to pay for being a big cat – you need a lot of food! On Tswalu lions love to tuck into Gemsbuck and blue wildebeest! 
We need to protect African lions and other big cats because they are the apex predators in ecosystems. Did you know that if we lose apex predators then populations of prey animals can increase, plants can be over utilized and this can even de-stabilize river banks! Remember everything in nature is interconnected. National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop lion-cattle conflict and monitoring big cats numbers with camera traps. Visit https://www.nationalgeographic.org/projects/big-cats-initiative/ to find out how you can help save big cats today, and remember by saving apex predators like lions and tigers we keep ecosystems balanced and healthy!

A message from National Geographic Society President and CEO, Gary E. Knell: National Geographic is synonymous with exploration. Similarly, Rolex has long been driven by the spirit of exploration, and continues to support pioneering ventures in discovery and conservation. This month, we are pleased to announce an enhanced partnership with Rolex—the first of its kind in National Geographic history—that further unifies the efforts of our two organizations. Our shared goals in this new partnership are to advance human knowledge. To raise awareness of the planet’s challenges as well as its marvels. And to inspire the next generation of explorers as they seek solutions that will ensure a healthy and sustainable future. How will we pursue these goals? By focusing, during the next five years, on three critical attributes of our planet: the oceans, the poles, and the mountains. We will enable and participate in expeditions that lead to scientific discovery, foster research and invention that will yield new exploration technologies, and convene summits and activities that generate public support for conservation. We invite you to explore with us, as we dive into this exciting future.

natgeo's Media: Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // A Quechua girl from the highlands of Ecuador, proudly shows me her most prized possession: a cute pup named Hector. Girls in rural areas have very limited access to education, job opportunities, or participation in local, regional, national or global economies. Efforts to narrow down the gender gap in corporate America are already underway. However, at the pace we are going, it will take 115 years for women to reach the same earning power as our male counterparts! What can you do today to empower the women around you? This week I was proud to participate in #TheGirlsLounge on behalf of @NatGeo with @AmiVitale.

A Gray Seal folds its flippers and poses for his portrait underwater in the Gulf of Maine. Extending from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia, the Gulf of Maine and its surrounding waters have been the economic bedrock of New England’s coastal communities, supporting a wide variety of commercial and recreational activities. 
Unfortunately, many factors currently threaten the vitality of the Gulf of Maine ecosystem. Decades of pollution, coastal habitat destruction, overfishing and bottom trawling have yielded havoc in the form of extensive habitat loss and diminished biodiversity. We live at a pivotal moment in history, where we understand the problems and have solutions; We simply need the will to take action. Restoring health to these important resources as rapidly as possible should be a national imperative.

It’s a great testimonial to the natural abundance and the resurgence of life that happened here after the protection of the California coast and the creation of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, which covers more than 6,000 square miles and harbors 34 species of marine mammals, including these sea lions.

natgeo's Media: Video by @joelsartore at Parc Assango, managed by ONG Animal's World in Gabon.
African golden cats are forest-dependent creatures living in equatorial Africa, a part of the world that is being ravaged by deforestation. As their habitat is lost, mainly to palm oil plantations, African golden cat populations are steadily disappearing. They’re now listed as vulnerable on the #IUCN Redlist. By avoiding the purchase of products that contain palm oil, we can make a statement that we will not tolerate the excessive destruction of this animal’s habitat.
This seven-year-old male African golden cat named Tigri is the only one of his species currently kept anywhere in human care. His intense stare made him among the most memorable creatures we’ve brought on board the ark. Tigri now he stands as an ambassador for his entire species and will help us spread the word about the importance of its conservation.

Pleased to see my work on the melting away of the Lewis Glacier on Mount Kenya featured at the f2 Fotofestival ( @f2_fotofestival ) in Dortmund which opened yesterday, (22 June) and runs until 16 July.

Here, from that series, a visualisation of glacial retreat using long exposures made in the middle of the night. The resultant images stem from the simple act of walking with a flaming torch along the glacier’s previous boundaries to illustrate a ‘layered’ history of glacial recession on the mountain.

Visit @f2_fotofestival

natgeo's Media: Video by @joelsartore | A critically-endangered female northern white-cheeked gibbon named Polly at the @EndangeredPrimateRescueCenter in Cuc Phuong National Park, Vietnam. She was a youngster, and instead of sucking her thumb, she actually sucked on her big toe during our photoshoot.
Because they are hunted for meat, used in traditional “medicines” and sold into the illegal pet trade, Northern white-cheeked gibbons’ main predators are humans. Their forest habitats in China, Vietnam and Laos are steadily being destroyed as logging continues, causing their populations to diminish along with it. In fact, there hasn’t been a Northern white-cheeked gibbon sighting in China since the 1990s. 
The Endangered Primate Rescue Center is a not-for-profit project dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, breeding, research and conservation of Vietnam's endangered and critically endangered primate species. Their final aim is to reintroduce and release these animals as stable family groups into well-protected natural areas.

Hundreds of BASE jumpers from all over the world are here celebrating the Art of human flight. Absolutely amazing to see what people can do when they put their heart and mind into it.

In fact I have never encountered and photographed so many turtles as in the seas off Galápagos. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for the June 2017 story on Climate Change and the Galápagos Islands. In collaboration with @darwinfound and #galapagosnationalpark

natgeo's Media: Photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. Happy #WorldGiraffeDay! The giraffe population has plummeted more than 40 percent over the past 30 years. To make matters worse, scientists know relatively little about giraffe behavior. But a group of scientists and wildlife experts are working to untangle the mystery behind these animals' rapid decline. In early June, I followed a group from the San Diego Zoo Global (@sandiegozoo), the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (@giraffe_conservation) and the Northern Rangelands Trust (@nrt_kenya) as they worked to collar and tag 11 giraffe in the Loisaba (@loisaba_conservancy) and Leparua Conservancies in Northern Kenya.

natgeo's Media: Video by @bertiegregory. Ever seen a peacock's backside?! This wild peacock was displaying in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka. Despite his incredible tail fan, the peahens just didn't seem interested. It's amazing to think that this male will shed and a grow a new fan each year, all in the name of reproduction! Shot during a leopard assignment for @natgeo, @natgeowild and @stevewinterphoto. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures!

BOOM!!!!!! Look at this sequence of a jaguar swimming, diving and hunting after a caiman on the banks of the pantanal river, Brazil! This was shot as part of my worldwide @natgeo jaguar story (it comes out December 2017!). Jaguars are the most incredible swimmers and are very comfortable in water! We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals like this jaguar have emotions too. If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.

We need to fight for the right of jaguars to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice! “When the buying stops, the killing can too” #wildaid
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families, 
they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. 
They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. The forests and grasslands of big cats give us 50% of our oxygen and 75% of fresh water. If we can save big cats we can help save ourselves!

natgeo's Media: Photograph by @Paulnicklen // Sometimes they look over at you and instantly grab you by the heart. Approximately one in a thousand fur seals are born as ‘blonde' variants. The Antarctic fur seal was very heavily hunted in the 18th and 19th centuries for its dense fur by sealers from the United States and Great Britain. By the early 20th century, the seal was regarded as commercially extinct, and perhaps completely extinct. Today, their numbers have returned to near historic numbers. We as humans are capable of doing great harm but we are also capable of great compassion. #follow me on @paulnicklen to see my favorite images from #antarctica. #nature #naturephotography #naturalhair #gratitude #greatness #MPA #explore
