View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @CristinaMittermeier on #assignment for @NatGeo // A silver stream flows through the belly of this massive iceberg.  As a faint opalescent moon heralds twilight, we marvel on the intricate designs that the tides, the wind and the sea have carved on this piece of ice. I could tell you a thousand reasons why healthy ice in Antarctica is important but sometimes, you just have to marvel at the beauty of nature and be grateful that it still exists on our planet. Proud to shoot for @NatGeo, @NatGeoPristineSeas and @SeaLegacy,  In the company of amazing shooters @PaulNicklen @Ladzinski @Andy_mann, @pattersonimages.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz  Some 90% of the seafood consumed in the U.S. is imported, mostly in the form of farmed shrimp and salmon, and canned tuna.  This video was taken yesterday at Guolian Aquatic, the biggest shrimp processer in China.  They shell 20k tons of farmed shrimp per year, primarily for export to the U.S. and Europe, but that is starting to change.  Rising incomes in China have allowed a shift in food habits to include more protein, and the domestic shrimp market is booming.  #onassignment for @natgeo

After a long hot morning exploring in the wilderness it's time for the elephants at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) to have a mud bath, followed by a dusting. The mud is essential to keep them cool and protect them from the Kenyan sun. It's also heaps of fun!

View natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @thomaspeschak Namaqua Chameleons are endemic to the deserts of Southern Africa. In Namibia they hunt on both sand dunes and gravel plains, searching for beetles and other insects. Their modified tongues can accelerate from 0-60 mph in a hundredth of a seconds. Prey can be snagged in just 20 milliseconds. The white flakes around the animals head are old skin, which is shed regularly. Shot on assignment for @natgeo.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @Filipe_DeAndrade | By the end of this adventure we named this area “Natures Buffet.” I saw more predatory behavior in the saltwater marshes of South Carolina than any other environment I’ve filmed in. The dolphin activity was 100% going off. Everything from the ospreys, bald eagles, herons, pelicans and even us as the film crew benefited from the dolphins strand feeding. But even though the hunting was everywhere, that didn’t mean it was easy to film. That’s why it really took us sitting back and observing how this ecosystem works as a whole to be able to capture the dolphin’s predatory evolution.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @joelsartore | An endangered Hispaniolan solenodon at Parque Zoológico Nacional in the Dominican Republic. 
This is one of the only venomous mammals on Earth. The second lower incisor tooth of this animal is grooved and can be used to deliver a venomous saliva. Hispaniolan solenodons have patches of skin full of apocrine glands on their thighs that are used to communicate with other individuals through scent. Like many species in the Dominican Republic, the most significant threat to this animal is the destruction of its habitat.

Rock art fascinates me. The images last thousands, sometimes tens of thousand of years. And even though we don't share the culture or even the language of the artist, the images still have power. 
This panel is carved into the sandstone of Comb Ridge in Southern Utah. It's part of the new Bears Ears National Monument. The Bears Ears contain over 100,000 archaeological sites. Th e landscape is central to the Dine, Hopi, Ute and Mountain Ute tribes.

Two Years ago this week the Yemeni crisis took a deadly turn. According to the United Nations, 16,200 people have been killed in Yemen since 2015 including 10,000 civilians. The humanitarian situation in what was already one of the world’s poorest nations, is now, after Syria, the most critical on the planet, with 20% of Yemenis severely food insecure.
Sana'a, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its distinctive architectural character. The World Heritage Committee has also voiced concern over the damage inflicted to this great Islamic city.

View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) with words by @m_synnott (Mark Synnott) - Every sport has an unsung hero, some quiet badass that operates under the radar, pushing the boundaries of their chosen field of endeavor without giving a whit if anyone knows about it—or cares. Matt Oliphant, pictured here (unpublished photo), is just such an individual. Matt served as Robbie's photo assistant/rigger/schlepper/safety guy on the Dark Star assignment. And I'm embarrassed that we've made it this far down the road without calling out the massive contribution he made to the overall success of the project. When things got gnarly down in Dark Star, in other words, shortly after I stepped into the mouth of the cave, I turned to Matt and said, “Hey man, can you keep an eye on me, and make sure I get out of this cave alive?” Matt just chuckled and said, “You got it man.” Matt’s not one to boast, but over the course of three weeks we spent together in Uzbekistan, including at least one session sitting on a rock in base camp drinking scotch, he shared enough stories for me to wonder: who the heck is this guy? During one particularly harrowing tale, involving some horrendously deep cave in Mexico, I held up my hand for him to stop. “Wait a second,” I said. “Are you a famous caver?” “No, no, no,” replied Matt. “Nope, that’s not me.” Then he proceeded to rattle off a bunch of names of people that he considers to be the real icons of the sport. The thing is, I could swear I'd heard those same names in many of the stories Matt had been telling me. If you're a caver, you probably already know about Matt. If you're not, let me introduce you to my hero. And, in case you’re wondering: no, I won't be going underground again unless Matt is by my side. #soulbrother #darkstar #myhero 1477267117283644854_787132

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @jtkerby | This gelada monkey mother is holding an infant that is only minutes old. Full photo sequence of its birth on my profile @jtkerby |  Prior to photographing this story, I worked as a biologist in the Ethiopian Highlands. On this day, that training paid off when I noticed a female monkey acting oddly - she walked away from the herd on her own, not something adult females will often do.  I had been following an Ethiopian wolf with fellow photographer @tbfrost, but quickly decided to figure out what this monkey was up to instead.  It soon became apparent that she wasn't sick or hurt as I initially feared, but was about to give birth.  I put on my telephoto lens, gave her some space, and watched her silently bring a new infant into the chilly alpine air.  This video captures her moments after giving birth, just before a cool rain began to fall as she rejoined the herd.

M: "You don't need an operation or chemotherapy?"

M: "It won't spread?"
L: "Yeah. They hit it before it got worse."

View natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @PaulNicklen taken while on assignment for @natgeo in #Antarctica // When penguin chicks head to sea for the first time, they are incredibly vulnerable as they lack the swimming skills of their parents.  Leopard seals know they are weak and time their own migratory patterns to coincide with this mass exodus of chicks going to sea from the penguin colony.  These Adelie chicks found themselves a moment of reprieve by hopping onto an iceberg.  Then, it came down to a waiting game.  As a bystander it is gut-wrenching to watch the drama unfold.  The leopard seals need to eat and yet you hope for the penguins to make it out of ‘leopard seal alley’. To see the hard reality of a leopard seal eating a penguin, please #followme on @paulnicklen // With @sea_legacy @natgeopristineseas @cristinamittermeier @ladzinski @andy_mann  @craigwelch #rhythmsofnature #hardreality #nature #naturelovers #instagood #love #picoftheday #photooftheday #adventure 1477050860546494465_787132

Red pandas clean their fur in the mornings by licking their paws and then rubbing their fur with them, much like a cat would. They rub the parts they can’t reach, like their back, on rocks or trees. These animals are very temperature sensitive. When it’s hot out they often hang out on tree branches, dangling their limbs. When it gets cold they warm themselves by covering their faces with their huge, fluffy tails. If scared or threatened, red pandas first attempt to flee. If they can’t get away, they stand up on their hind legs, try to make themselves look larger, and use their sharp claws as defense. 
We’re happy to announce the release of our children’s photo/poetry book “Animal Ark” featuring images of over 100 species photographed by @joelsartore for the Photo Ark project and poetry by @kwamealexander. Through this book we learn how each of us, no matter how big or small, is important, miraculous, and vital to this planet. 
To see an image of a nine-week-old clouded leopard cub which is featured alongside these red pandas in our new children’s book, check out @joelsartore!
