Photograph by @paulnicklen // 4 month polar bear cubs peek over their mother while she waits out a hot day near Ellesmere Island, Nunavut. During the spring, polar bears often travel at night when the snow is more firm and the air temperature is cooler. Fortunately, that is when the light is best. To see what it looks like when one of these little cubs grows up to be an 800 pound plus bear, please #followmeme on @paulnicklen #cute #bear #polarbear #nature #beauty #naturelovers #instagramhub #climatechangeisreal #adventure

Photo @ladzinski / A #crabeatersealresting on a small iceberg under a fiery sunset on the #AntarcticaPeninsula. Over the last two decades, the Antarctica Peninsula region has warmed significantly, directly contributing to substantial ice loss. Sea ice is critical to not only the large animals in this ecosystem, but to the lower food chain as well. It's where bacteria grows that krill feed on. Predators in turn, like this crab eater seal here, feed heavily on krill. The loss of sea ice creates a struggle from the bottom up leaving with it a lot of unanswered questions to what this means for the abundance of animals that live here and how it's affecting ocean sea rise globally.

Photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. Wildlife keeper Rimland Lemojong plays ball with Pokot, a seven-month-old male elephant, in front of the elephant enclosures at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Pokot arrived in November 2016 and is one of a dozen elephants being rehabilitated by these dedicated keepers in the hopes of releasing him back to the wild herds of Northern Kenya, which is home to Kenya's second largest elephant population. Read more about Reteti in my @NatGeo story: https://tinyurl.com/kvopc69 Follow all of us, @r.e.s.c.u.e, nearby @sararacamp and @amivitale to support and learn more about these initiatives. @nrt_kenya @lewa_wildlife @kenyawildlifeservice @tusk_org @sandiegozoo @conservationorg @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nature_africa #elephants #saveelephants #retetielephants #ecotourism #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #photojournalism #amivitale

Video by @renan_ozturk // Our #thelasthoneyhunterstory is now live in print within the current print issue and online featured on nationalgeographic.com homepage today! ~ In this shot, Mauli Dhan, the last in the village to be the chosen to hunt the honey climbs his handwoven bamboo ladder to safety after a successful harvest of hallucinogenic honey. ~ Although we have shot from ropes before the challenges of documenting this dying tradition were unimaginable. For a deeper look into the trails and tribulations that went into the article and film search "The Last Honey Hunter Behind the Scenes". Looking forward to sharing the film by @ben_knight publicly as well after it finishes the festival run! ~ @sadiequarrier @jetbutterflies @m_synnott @irving_matthew @taylorfreesolo @feltsoulmedia @camp4collective @climber.abiral #nepaliloveyou

Photo by @michaelnicknichols. Mirithi, silverback mountain gorilla, Virunga Mountains, Rwanda, 1981 This image taught me that I could be a powerful voice for those that cannot speak. Mirithi was very young and one of the first gorillas to be habituated for tourism. Revenue from tourism is ultimately what saved the mountain gorilla and the fabulous land they inhabit. His father was shot and he had to takeover is family which was led by his mother while he gained confidence. He was famous for sideways bluff charges though he never hurt or even touched a tourist. Sadly he was shot in his prime by frightened soldiers that were patroling the park for rebels in the years before the Rwanda genocide. author Melissa Harris spent 5 years exploring my life for A Wildlife just out from Aperture and accompanied by WILD michael nichols an exhibit running from June 27 - Sept 17 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art @aperturefnd @natgeocreative @michaelnicknichols @philamuseum #awildlifebook #michaelnicholswild

Photograph by @thomaspeschak Galápagos cormorants lost the ability to fly in favor of being more streamlined underwater hunters. Now faster and more agile in the pursuit of fish, their remnant stubby wings are only useful as flippers. Unfortunately these unique birds can be severely impacted by climate change. As ocean waters warm their fish prey migrates away from the islands in search of colder water, out of reach of these flightless cormorants. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for a story on Climate Change and the Galápagos Islands. In collaboration with @darwinfound #galapagosnationalpark@fonassociation @pelayosalinas #paulmangellfoundation

Photo by @anandavarma. Ivar Vleut releases a wooly false vampire bat (Chrotopterus auritus) into its home in a Mayan temple in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This is one of the largest bat species in the Americas. Ivar caught this bat to remove a GPS tracker he had glued onto its back a few days earlier. The GPS data helps the research team understand where the bats go to hunt at night. This photo is part of a story on carnivorous bats that covers the research being done by Rodrigo Medellín (@rodrigomedellin1223) and Ivar Vleut (@ivarvleut).

@natgeo @stevewinterphoto Here's a birds eye view of the Iquitos várzea, a type of flooded forest in the Peruvian amazon. This was shot by me @stevewinterphoto and my assistant @alexbraczkowski near Iquitos, the largest city in the Peruvian Amazon east of the Andes. I am here documenting jaguars and how indigenous people use jaguars in culture and medicine as part of my worldwide @natgeo magazine story on the species which comes out in December 2017! This particular patch of rainforest near Iquitos, Peru has nearly 900 species of flora and over 130 mammals, 330 different birds and 150 amphibians and reptiles living in it! Nearly half a million people also live and depend on this rainforest and its river for food, water and tourism. This area has some of the most fertile soil in the world thanks to the sediments washed down from the Andes. We need to protect these forest systems which are the lungs of the earth! #followme @stevewinterphoto for more shots of wild places, human cultures and wildlife! @natgeo @natgeocreative #peru #beautifulperu @reddigitalcinema #bigcatsinitative #amazonas #amazon #instawild #videooftheday #wildlifeshooters #instagood@leonardodicaprio #jaguar #lookingforjaguars

Video by @joelsartore | The BUGarium, located in the Botanic Garden of the @ABQBioPark, is one of the largest insect zoos in North America with over 60 species of insects and other arthropods on display. Some of the most popular exhibits include a massive colony of leafcutter ants that travel over guests’ heads along a vine, a closet-sized enclosure filled with foot-long stick insects, and a collection of praying mantis species from across the globe. While most people are familiar with the typical green mantises seen in gardens, BUGarium visitors encounter bizarre and beautiful species like this giant golden mantis (Hierodula sp.) from southeastern Asia. Close relatives of the often maligned cockroaches, praying mantises are strictly predatory - larger species like this one can even subdue small birds. . To see a portrait of this mantis, check out @joelsartore! . . #mantis #goldenmantis #giantmantis #bugarium #abqbiopark #bugs #insects #video #strangeanimals #wildlife #nature #animals #photoark #natgeo #savetogether

Photo by @petekmuller. A young boy dashes through tall grass on his way to fish in the Cubango River in Angola. The Cubango, which is a critical tributary to the pristine Okavango Delta, starts as a meandering stream in central Angola. There, rural communities rely on it for a variety of daily needs including water and food. Boys in rural communities fish as a means of supplementing their diet--which is largely derived from subsistence farming and expensive imported goods--as well as way to make some additional money by selling fish to other members of the community. #intotheokavango #cubango2017 #angola #cubango #river #africa #expedition #science #biodiversity #conservation #fishing

Photo @andy_bardon /// The last light on the Teton Mountains. With over 30 feet of snow this season the rivers are raging, the local creeks are overflowing and the valleys are lush and green. The mountain snowpack persists and was the deepest ever recorded, while snowfall and water amounts were only beat by the Winter of 1996-1997.

Photograph by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto - Beat the heat: Tokyo Summerland is a popular water park that's home to the world's most crowded wave pool. It creates a 1 meter wave for 5 minutes every hour on the hour.

Photo by @pedromcbride // Reflective Silence: During our 700-mile +, 71-day walk through the length of the Grand Canyon, we often depended on shallow puddles of rain water to survive. Not only do they provide life, but they reflect the stillness, silence and river of stars that for me, define this wild realm more than its rich geology and humbling landscape.

Photograph by @mattiasklumofficial Funky fish! The leaf scorpionfish is almost as flat as a leaf and resembles a leaf in many ways. Its color varies from green, pink, red, brown, ocher white and to a golden yellow! The venom of the leaf scorpionfish is considerably weaker than that of the lionfish and stonefish. Go to @mattiasklumofficial to see more images from our projects around the world. This cool species can be found in tropical waters on coral reefs, from shallow water to a depth of 130 m. I found and photographed it while producing our film "Vamizi -Cradle of Coral" off the coast of Mozambique. #protectbiodiversity #oceanconservation #vamiziisland #vamizi #mattiasklum #scorpionleaffish #camouflage #venom@mattiasklumcollection @irisalexandrov @natgeo @thephotosociety

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier As her older sister inspects the nearby tide pools in the coastal community of Makaha, young Keānuenue DeSoto, a native Hawaiian girl, examines a tiny crab she just pulled from the sea. Her family is rich with history and tradition and they come from a long line of legendary surfers and watermen; people who have been working hard to recover the lost pieces of their Hawaiian culture for decades. One of their best contributions is the Nã Ka Ma Kai; a non profit organization dedicated to connecting the children to the sea through waters safety, conservation and fun.

Photo by @renan_ozturk // No rest for the wicked as climber @alexhonnold - who just completed his dream of climbing Yosemite's El Cap rope-less - joined me last week in Alaska's Great Ruth Gorge to attempt one of the largest walls on earth. Although conditions were too dangerous we were able to put up a few new climbs with @freddiewilkinson and explore the crevassed lateral moraines of one of the largest glaciers on earth. In the 10 years I've been coming here I've seen a huge changes - hundreds of feet of glacial retreat and gaint melt water lakes like this that used to be tiny pools. ~ @taylorfreesolo @rudy.le @landonbassett @sanctityofspace #thegreatgorge
