Photo by Simon Norfolk @simonnorfolkstudio I An image from my Blenheim oaks series. Blenheim Palace was a gift from a grateful nation to General John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, for his victories in battle. Over the years, blasted by lightning or simply toppling over in their senescence, the oaks at Blenheim seem like ancient pachyderms or baobabs clinging to the edge of life. They were originally planted, it is said, as a leafy reminder of a faraway military conquest—to map the configuration of troops at the beginning of the Battle of Blenheim on August 13, 1704.

Photo by @iantehphotography | My taxi driver during my stay in Linfen, also known as China's coal-capital in 2007, was an ex-coal miner. He would tell me stories about the dangers of the job, worrying everyday if he'd make it back aboveground after a hard day's work in the mines. He wasn't exaggerating, because at that time 80% of the world's coal mining accidents were in China. He took me to his old workplace, and while he caught up with his boss, I was allowed to explore. I walked down past the entrance to the colliery and waited in the dark until I heard footsteps of miners approaching. They were surprised when they saw me—a man in civilian clothes with a pair of cameras. I asked to take their portraits, but I'd need their help in the dark. Moving various workers around my chosen subject, I asked them to shine their head torches directly at their friend as I took this picture of him. They were delighted. After the shot I could hear them chattering excitedly as they continued deep into the dark for another day's work on the coal seams. #coal #mining #climatechange

Photo by Cristina Mittermeier @cristinamittermeier | Cultural legacies all over the world are passed down from parents to children. In Galicia, the mariscadoras (fisherwomen) have harvested berberechos (cockles) for generations and generations. Traditionally, the men in this region would spend their days fishing the deep ocean while the women stayed on land, raking the shores for clams and cockles. Berberechos is considered a predominately matriarchal trade, handed down from grandmother to mother to daughter. Throughout various times of the year, these women venture to different parts of the coastline, raking away until they fill their buckets with berberechos. They then rush over to the weighing station to sell their berberechos before the daily quota is met! Conservation efforts have turned cockle collecting into a sort of race; once the daily quota hits its peak, cockles can no longer be traded in or sold.

Photo by Beverly Joubert @beverlyjoubert | “You look straight ahead. You try to breathe normally. You can smell the scent of the huge cat that is staring back. You are a cameraman. He is the King of Beasts.” There's no feeling quite like looking directly into the eyes of a true predator. Your primitive being awakens immediately, recognizing that the animal before you is a phenomenal force with which to be reckoned. For me, trying to convey the power of that feeling in a single camera frame is an endless challenge, and clicking the shutter has become almost as instinctual as the hairs that can rise up on the back of my neck. But it's not just the stories and images that we can convey; responsible nature-based tourism, of “hunting” with our eyes and our cameras, offers us an effective, invigorating, and sustainable way of safeguarding species and their habitats, as well as uplifting the communities that live alongside wildlife. In a world where lions have vanished from 90% of their historic range, their numbers falling to dangerous lows, this is an important, minimum-impact conservation tool, bringing in money for conservation, preserving wild habitats, and cementing the relationship with nature that we need. #thisismytrophy

Photo by Lucas Foglia @lucasfogliaphoto | It’s National Honey Bee Awareness Day! Did you know that every honey bee you see pollinating a flower is female? Each hive has one queen, with 100 female worker bees for every male drone bee. The queen’s only job is to lay eggs and a drone’s only job is to mate with the queen. The female worker bees are responsible for everything else: gathering nectar, guarding the hive and honey, caring for the queen and larvae, keeping the hive clean, and producing honey. Bees give new meaning to the phrase "A woman’s work never ends." They pollinate 70 of the top 100 consumer food crops, which supply about 90 percent of the world's nutrition. #NationalHoneyBeeAwarenessDay

Odette and her son also share their home with nine cats and eight dogs. Bob is unfazed by his housemates. Bob is a Caribbean flamingo from the island of Curaçao. His life took a dramatic turn when he flew into a hotel window, leaving him severely concussed. He was cared for by Doest, a local vet (and also my cousin) who also runs a wildlife rehabilitation center and conservation charity—the Fundashon Dier en Onderwijs Cariben.

Photos by Cristina Mittermeier @cristinamittermeier | A quarter of all shark species are at risk of extinction. Around the world, we are fishing many shark species faster than they can reproduce, and once over-fished, sharks will take a long time to recover—if they can recover. We can be angry and heartbroken, but we also can go deeper to understand why this problem exists and rectify it. We need stronger management and legislation in place to protect them. Thankfully, the world is starting to wake up to the crisis sharks face, but we need more voices to join us.

Photo by Beverly Joubert @beverlyjoubert | It may seem like a ubiquitous sight: a pair of serene, long-necked giants ambling their way across a grassland landscape toward tea-colored water. It's as if they have the place to themselves. But we know the reality is very different: giraffe populations are in alarming decline, and habitat loss is one of the biggest threats they face. For a towering, supersized browser, the pressures of survival in landscapes increasingly hemmed in by humans can be especially intense. In fact, studies have shown that giraffes living near dense human settlements have larger home ranges, requiring them to travel greater distances and use up more precious energy to obtain critical resources. Just like a deep channel blocking their path, more and more barriers impact the animals' chances of survival, and they are certainly not alone. Will we pull together to slow the looming extinctions, stabilize the climate, and prioritize the health of the planet over short-term developmental gains? As of 2018, 14.9 percent of the Earth’s land surface and 7.3 percent of the world’s oceans are formally protected. We have a long way to go, but it is possible—if we just don't leave things too late. #spacefornature
Photo by Paul Nicklen @paulnicklen | When you're a penguin, there's no telling when you might become a sea lion's lunch. These rockhopper penguins race toward shore in groups because it increases the odds of survival; you're less likely to be picked off by a hungry predator when you're surrounded by a dozen birds that look just like you, and if you're faster than all the others, then that's great news for you. Penguins have evolved for life on land and in the ocean, but once you've seen the way they move through and over water, it's hard to call them flightless. At the very least, these rockhopper penguins in the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) seem to remember what it was to soar through the sky, before evolution took them out of the air and gave them the sea to fly through instead.

Photo by Stephen Wilkes @stephenwilkes | Photographing in India was a very humbling experience, and one of my favorite locations was the holy city of Varanasi. There is an overarching sense of calm and acceptance of the cycle of life. Varanasi is known as the place where loved ones are taken to be cremated on funeral pyres, seen as a beautiful ritual. This Day to Night image shows the multitude of color and activity throughout the city and its port, even on days with temperatures of 108 degrees, as it was on the day of the shoot. In the Day to Night series, epic cityscapes and landscapes are portrayed from a fixed camera angle, capturing fleeting moments of humanity and nature as light passes in front of the lens over the course of a full day.

Photo by Daniella Zalcman @dzalcman | On this day three years ago, a group of Lakota riders from the Standing Rock, Rosebud, and Lower Brule reservations came together on horseback to push back a police line that had formed between a group of native water protectors and the entrance to the Dakota Access Pipeline construction site. The demonstration was planned and peaceful, but was meant to signal to both the local county police and the construction team, which had begun bringing heavy machinery up the hill to finish the last segment of the pipeline, that their community was staunchly against a project they believed would have catastrophic environmental consequences and directly undermine tribal sovereignty. Today, native Hawaiians are similarly standing together at Mauna Kea to prevent the construction of the $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) in a spot of deep ecological, spiritual, and cultural significance to Hawaiians. This seems to be a story we can find at any moment in post-contact American history. #standingrock #maunakea

Photo by Katie Orlinsky @katieorlinsky | Methane lake fire in Fairbanks, Alaska. I've been photographing in the Arctic for close to six years, trying to tell stories that put a human face on climate change. For nearly two of those years I've been working on “The Carbon Threat” for @natgeo, online today (link in my bio @katieorlinsky). The article, written by @craigwelch, tackles the urgent subject of permafrost thaw. It has been one of the most challenging stories I have ever photographed, a journey that fluctuated from frustrating and disturbing to fascinating and inspiring at a moment's notice. What is happening to our planet is not easy to swallow, but we must confront it head-on. I hope our article can help the public and policymakers recognize this new, groundbreaking reality and take action. Arctic permafrost is thawing much faster than expected, releasing carbon gases that could drastically speed up climate change. Scientists say what was once hundreds of years away could now happen in our lifetime, with permafrost thaw releasing nearly three times more greenhouse gases than expected. In this image, flammable methane, a potent greenhouse gas, bubbles from the thawing permafrost beneath a frozen lake. When you punch a hole through the ice, the gas escapes and can be measured—or set on fire— as a scientist demonstrates here. Permafrost refers to the layer of continuously frozen soil that covers almost 1/4th of the Earth’s surface, found mostly in the Arctic. Most permafrost areas have been frozen for more than 10,000 years. And trapped inside permafrost are carbon dioxide and methane gas, built up from thousands of years of decomposing organic matter. If the amount of CO2 trapped in the Earth’s permafrost was released, it would be two times the amount we currently have in the atmosphere. Meanwhile, methane is 25 times as potent as CO2, and if released could make today’s fossil fuel emissions look like chump change.

Photo by Beverly Joubert @beverlyjoubert | For World Elephant Day, I'm posting an image of the burning tusks from thousands of elephants in Kenya in 2016, the largest ivory burn to date. These burns are controversial acts against poaching because of the high monetary value of ivory, and while Kenya didn’t expect this to end the poaching, it sent a strong message: Elephants are worth more alive, and Kenya was stepping up its war against those who traffic in wildlife and wildlife products. Why not sell the ivory and use the money for the conservation of these animals? Well, these tusks are mostly from elephants illegally killed for their ivory, which has been confiscated over the years, and Kenya refused to make money from contraband. Also, in the past ivory released for sale ended up fueling the demand, and there was a sudden and extreme rise in elephant poaching, which has cost countries countless more millions than were ever raised from sales. Tanzania lost over half its elephant population in just five years, and Africa lost a whopping third of all elephants. Many people don’t know that elephants are killed for their tusks and believe that they fall out naturally. They don’t. Since this burn, a number of important things have happened. China has banned the sale of ivory, and while there is still illegal trade, prices have fallen dramatically and so has elephant poaching. However, in southern Africa, where the world's last substantial elephant population remains, Botswana, Namibia, and Zimbabwe are calling for an end to the ban in trade of raw ivory and are planning to apply for these changes at the next CITES to conference, declaring that the money raised will be used for conservation and anti-poaching. #WorldElephantDay #worthmorealive #saynotoivory #kenyaivoryburn #whenthebuyingstopsthekillingcantoo

Photo by Paul Nicklen @paulnicklen | When it comes to experiences with the power to change your life, it doesn't really get more raw than when you find yourself up against an 8,000-lb elephant bull seal who's mistaken you for a rival breeding male. You're in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nothing but freezing water and icy desert, and your heart's beating so fast it feels like it's going to bruise the inside of your chest. This elephant seal came barreling toward me in defense of his harem and the entire beach, and this is what it looked like when I used my underwater housing to push him off. I accidentally hit the shutter as I scrambled to get out of his way. Other photographers ask me if they should get in the water with elephant seals in Antarctica during breeding season. The answer is no. It's like getting in the water with hippos. When this male approached me, I was in the shallows, and I made it back to land with my camera still clutched in my hands and without injury. Elephant seals beat up on each other all day long; bulls grab 1,500-pound females in the surf zone and drown them in an attempt to breed. I still do not want to play a role in affecting their behavior; it is always my prime objective to be like a ghost when I walk in the wild parts of our world. I should have known better and now I do. Please #follow me @paulnicklen where I share more about the experiences that have both shaped my career. #respect #elephantseal #nature #wildlife

Photo by Jasper Doest @jasperdoest | Three and a half years ago, Flamingo Bob was living a pretty normal flamingo life on the salt flats of Curaçao—until he made an unfortunate mistake. He flew into a window at the local Hilton hotel and ended up near the swimming pool with a concussion. He was cared for by my cousin, Odette Doest, who is a veterinarian on the island and also runs a wildlife rescue facility. Odette discovered he suffered from a chronic condition on his feet and he had been habituated to people, which made it impossible for her to release the flamingo in the wild. Instead, she made him an ambassador for the Fundashon Dier en Onderwijs Cariben @fdoccuracao, her nonprofit organization for educating locals about the importance of protecting the island’s wildlife.

“Sharing your stories helps other people feel seen and heard,” says Robin Thede ( @robinthede), creator of @ablackladysketchshow (pictured right). “I came up with the name ‘The Black Lady Sketch Show’ when I created the series because I didn’t want there to be any confusion about what people were watching,” says Robin. “Then we changed it to ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ so that we didn’t single ourselves out as the only one. That simple change to “A” means that we’re one of possibly many black lady sketch shows, which would be a dream come true!” The best part of #ABLSS for Robin? “Working with all these amazing black women,” she says. “Writers, our director, our cast, our guest stars… and of course, (pictured left) Issa Rae ( @issarae).” #ShareBlackStories

Meet Noor Tagouri ( @noor), a Libyan American journalist on a mission to amplify the voices of underrepresented communities and strengthen people’s perspectives. Noor’s unique take on storytelling serves as a form of activism by truly passing the mic and equipping people with knowledge straight from the source. “When I put on the hijab for the first time, there was this overwhelming sense of strength and purpose, like maybe I’m doing this for something bigger than me,” says Noor, who made a personal choice to start wearing the hijab at the age of 15. “The thing that people told me was going to keep me down and hold me back was actually what allowed me to connect with people in a way that they had never felt seen or heard before.” 🎤✨ Learn more about Noor’s life and work in this week’s episode of #Advocates, our series that highlights people around the world who are sparking positive change in their communities.

Photo by Jasper Doest @jasperdoest | A juvenile Caribbean flamingo checks out the improvised socks that veterinarian Odette Doest created for its severe foot lesions. The bird was brought to Curaçao by airplane from the neighboring island of Bonaire after spending time at Bonaire Wild Bird Rehab. When @bonairewildbirdrehab realized that the small infection on its feet worsened, they decided the bird needed immediate medical care and connected with Odette, who picked up the bird from the airport the following day. Odette, who also runs a rehabilitation center, treated the bird and made special socks to fit the bird's feet and to avoid too much stress on the healing wounds. After the bird's recovery, it was transported back to Bonaire, where it occasionally still visits the rehabilitation center there. And guess what, it's pink now!

Considered the most abundant large animal on Earth in the 1970s, this species has been decimated by overfishing.

Photo by Stephen Alvarez @salvarezphoto | Loftheiller Cave, Iceland, is a permafrost-encrusted lava tube and one of the few lava tubes I know of that has permanent ice formations. Ice inside this cave grows slowly and is hundreds and maybe thousands of years old. The cave itself was created when fast-flowing molten rock drained through a lava field and left this void underground. The cave is now a product of fire and ice. #iceland #cave

Photo by Andy Mann @andy_mann | After going to sleep aboard the Freya, an arctic research vessel circumnavigating around Svalbard, Norway, I heard a gentle knock on my door around 2:30 a.m. “A bear is approaching, please quietly make your way out to the deck if you’d like to observe it,” said the guide. I grabbed my camera and rushed down the hallway, noticing I had accidentally left my 12-24mm wide angle lens mounted on the camera body overnight. Not the best lens for photographing distant polar bears. I’ll just have a quick look outside, I thought. I opened the port-side door to the deck; the cold air hit my face as I scanned the horizon for bears. Nothing. Moments later, I heard a heavy breath at my feet, even before I smelled it. I looked down to see a mother bear had stood up on her hind feet and was taking a good look at my muck boots through the ship's gunnel hole. My photo instincts are much sharper than my survival instincts, and I bent down in front of her and took a few photos before she lost interest, gathered her cubs, and made her way back into the mist. I thanked my lucky stars for walking out into this moment with the "wrong" lens. A little luck goes a long way. Please follow me @andy_mann for more exciting stories from the field.

Photo by Fritz Hoffmann @fritzphotos | This photo was shot for the National Geographic magazine story "Searching for Shangri-La." On their arduous pilgrimage to circle the sacred mountain Kawagebo, Tibetan pilgrims approach the 14,721-foot pass to cross into Tibet from Yunnan Province, China. The once-in-a-lifetime journey takes two weeks. Camping far below the pass with my Tibetan assistant, I heard the pilgrims passing me in the middle of the night, when drifting in and out of sleep under a thick wool Tibetan blanket covered with frost. I woke and gave chase in the dark. At daybreak on the pass, I waited several hours for pilgrims to come into my frame. I was an unexpected sight, there, alone with my camera. I greeted them with "Tashi delek," the only Tibetan greeting I knew. They smiled and returned the greeting. If they could speak Mandarin, we conversed.

Poucas vezes eu vi meu pai chorar, hoje ele chorou... Minha mãe... Choramos todos. Ah... Ruth! 17 anos juntas. Crescemos juntas e agora você se foi... Minha amiga, companheira, anjo da guarda... Não consigo parar de chorar, de saudade, de vontade de te trazer de volta pra perto. Os bichos são puro amor, nos ensinam muito sobre amar e só ficam ao lado de quem também é amor. São tão mais evoluídos que a gente, que o tempo aqui é mais curto. Eu sabia que iria doer quando você fosse, mas não imaginei que seria tão forte. Não consigo nem explicar, mensurar o quanto... A única coisa que aquieta minha alma é saber que você parou de sofrer e que eu te enchi de beijos e você sentiu o calor do meu peito preenchido de gratidão e amor durante todos esses dias. É a vida passando, lembrando a gente o quanto é frágil e que estamos todos apenas de passagem... Tempo tempo tempo tempo Vou te fazer um pedido Tempo tempo tempo tempo Compositor de destinos Tambor de todos os ritmos Tempo tempo tempo tempo Entro num acordo contigo Te amo pra sempre, meu amor.

LUMA Difícil expressar com palavras todo amor e gratidão que sinto só pelo fato de você existir e fazermos parte da vida uma da outra. Pesquisei sobre seu nome, achei vários significados e origens. É um nome que está super ligado à natureza. Parece que vem de LUA, de luminosidade, ou seja, tudo a ver com você. Afinal, você é uma força da natureza que ilumina o caminho de todos ao seu redor. Também significa “pôr do sol” que pra mim é o momento mais lindo pelo encontro e misturas de cores e brilhos do céu. Existe também uma árvore chamada Luma, ela tem flores de pétalas brancas e aroma picante. Mas de onde viria o nome dessa árvore? Pesquisando mais um pouco descobri que existe uma outra árvore de nome completo esquisito, -Amomyrtus Luma-, árvore conhecida pela resistência de sua madeira. Tentando decifrar um pouco mais de você, te coloco aqui algumas características suas que tem tudo a ver com você. Você é luz, poesia, ao mesmo tempo que é pétala de flor canceriana, também é picante, uma mulher que gosta da família, de criar raizes sólidas e cultivar suas amizades e amores. Mas acima de tudo, uma Mulher com M maiúsculo mesmo, de força, de resistência, que não tem medo do mundo. Você é a irmã que eu descobri ter. Aquela que sabe todas as minhas alegrias e dores, com quem eu sei que posso dividir meus pensamentos e quem eu tenho visto com muita admiração, se tornar uma pessoa ainda melhor a cada dia. A gente tem aprendido muito uma com a outra. A irmã que nos momentos que eu mais precisei sempre esteve de perto ou de longe, me -dando a mão-. Eu te amo de coração. E você não merece só textão no Instagram não, a gente é muito além disso. Você é muito além disso, porque a sua essência e seu jeito generoso de ser, a mãe firme e doce e amiga leoa eu tenho o privilégio de conhecer muito alem da superficialidade. Por tudo isso sei que posso te chamar de família também! ♥️ Te amo @lumacostaa

Meet Nicole and Paula, the London-based co-founders behind Black Girl Festival ( @blackgirlfest), the first arts and culture festival celebrating black British women and girls. “Coming from a place where everyone is black, then coming to a country where you’re literally being singled out because you’re black, really taught me about my identity and what it means, and not being ashamed of being a black girl,” says Nicole Crentsil, who moved to the UK from Ghana when she was 5. “We wanted to create a space that we had wished for our younger selves.” This October will be the Black Girl Fest’s third year. “To see young black girls come to the festival and buy books that have black princesses in them and buy dolls that look like them, this is why we do it.” says Paula. “It’s easily the best thing we’ve done in our entire lives.” On stories and IGTV, learn more about the festival and the women who are this week’s #Advocates — our weekly series that highlights people around the world who are sparking positive change.✨

Alerta -textão- sobre 30 de junho! Mais um ano passou... E chegou o dia do meu nascimento ou renascimento. Pelo menos para mim, é sempre uma época de balanço, de questionamentos, de pensar e repensar em tudo e de ter consciência da evolução. No ano passado eu fiz uma festa. Adoro comemorar. Adoro celebrar a vida. Dançar, abraçar, agradecer. Fiquei fazendo uma retrospectiva na minha cabeça... Esse ano decidi não fazer uma festa cheia de gente. Apesar de gostar e querer ainda muitas festas, com muitos amigos, esse ano, não. Escolhi me recolher. Chego até aqui me reconectando com eu mesma, tirando qualquer armadura (que muitas vezes a vida te obriga a colocar) de mim. Acho que nunca tive tanta certeza de quem eu sou, sem me prender ou me preocupar com quem querem que eu seja, ou me pareça. Com quem querem me “transformar” através de narrativas. Vivemos uma era reativa e não reflexiva. A rapidez com que nos comunicamos não qualifica o que dizemos. Eu gosto da LUZ, eu sou solar. Essa é a minha ESSÊNCIA. Eu gosto do que brilha genuinamente. E graças a minha família e meus valores eu -nunca- me perdi de mim mesma, mesmo com tantas facilidades e atalhos. O mundo está diferente, hostil, quem não construir seu refúgio emocional, não manterá a lucidez. Com muita gratidão recebo meus 24 anos muito mais forte e ainda dando mais valor ao que é real, o que importa de verdade, que tudo que é superficial passe e só o essencial fique na minha vida e no meu caminho.
