natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @hammond_robin for @witness_change “When we came here, I could not even approach him, because he would have hit me. But now with the help of men of God who prayed for him here, I see that he is better” said Sankpel Bédagou (left) of her son Lare (right). They agreed to tell their story for my new campaign on mental health #InMyWorld. Lare is usually chained to a tree inside the grounds of a church in the region of Bokiccenag in northern Togo where I met them. I saw 15 other adults living with mental health problems chained to trees or posts around the church while they waited to be cured through prayer. Some had been there, chained, for more than a year. Lare, like the others, was brought to the church to be healed. People come to the Church to pray for the resolution of problems ranging from financial difficulties to severe illnesses. In many parts of the world mental health problems are perceived to be spiritual in nature, so spiritual remedies are sought. In many cases chains are used to immobilise while the healing is taking place. All over the world the freedom of movement is a human right often denied to people with mental health issues. #InMyWorld is my new campaign designed to expose the challenges faced by people living with mental health issues and give them the chance to be seen, heard and valued. This first phase of the campaign was created in collaboration with @handicap_international as part of Witness Change's work on global mental health. @witness_change is a nonprofit that aims to end human rights violations for marginalized communities through visual storytelling.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @FransLanting This is Mike, a young male chimp we got to know in the Fongoli region of southeast Senegal. We worked with him and his family for six weeks, following them on foot through their forest. There are less than 200 chimps left in Senegal and their future hangs in the balance, just like it does for all chimps in Africa. Habitat loss and the bushmeat trade are the major threats to their survival. As we gather together with our own families during this holiday season, let’s not forget our extended family on the great tree of life. We can all help chimps survive by supporting the individuals and the organizations that protect them and the forests they depend on. Check the links below for the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International, Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots, and @NatGeo Explorer Jill Pruetz’s Neighbor Ape project in Senegal, which we support through GlobalGiving.org online.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @chamiltonjames / Charlie Hamilton James - Kauai with his pet monkey. Like many indigenous people in the Amazon, the Awa keep pet wild animals and seem particularly fond of monkeys. The monkeys are usually acquired when the parent monkey is shot for food and the baby is kept as a pet. The monkeys are much loved and often spend much of their day sleeping on people's heads especially when they are young like this one. The women in the group tend to be more monkey oriented and their monkeys go everywhere with them. Check out our Instagram today for more on the wonderful Awa. Shot on assignment for @natgeo

It is a self portrait, my reflection off the hotel room balcony glass door in Kigali where the ground floor garden is filled with beautiful plants and trees.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Image by @joelsartore | This gray mouse lemur at the @DukeLemurCenter is named ‘Buckwheat’, and he's tiny, weighing the same as 32 pennies. He went from having a broken foot during in his first week of life to becoming a supermodel.
These tiny primates can develop symptoms of neurological disorders similar to Alzheimer’s in humans. Because lemurs are so genetically close to us, studying them can prove very promising for neurological aging research. Recently, non-invasive research on these little creatures has led to a new Alzheimer’s hypothesis that could help identify humans at risk before they develop symptoms and possibly delay onset and progression of the disease.

Stargazers are ambush predators that bury themselves in the sand and wait for unsuspecting prey to pass overhead.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @ronan_donovan | Captured #withgalaxy S8, produced with @samsungmobileusa | A man stands well away from a 9ft long African rock python along the road in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda. Pythons can lie in wait for weeks at a time for a meal to come within striking distance. Once suitable prey is grabbed, pythons then wrap their muscular bodies around the animal to constrict the prey before swallowing whole.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @TimLaman. A beautiful fully flanged male Tapanuli Orangutan taking a mid-day siesta. It was amazing how relaxed this male was in our presence, as we followed him through the rugged mountain forests of Sumatra. So much so that he took a snooze in a small tree where I had a perfect view to get this shot. But sadly, if he understood the broader situation around him, he probably wouldn’t be so at peace. This newly described third species of orangutan, while just scientifically confirmed, only has less than 800 individuals in their whole population! Though highly intelligent, orangutans have little control over this situation….. its up to us humans to make the right decisions to allow Tapanuli Orangutans and all the rich biodiversity of earth to persist. Or not. Where do you stand? See more of my Tapanuli orangutan photos by following me @TimLaman, and follow the links to help at @socp.official.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo @michaelchristopherbrown
I photographed Rebecca Masika Katsuva several times between 2012-2016 and was amazed by her resiliency, bravery and compassion. As an activist and a survivor of sexual assault, she continually sacrificed her safety to help other victims over the years. During the Second Congo War in 1999, attackers killed Masika’s husband and sexually assaulted her and her daughters, then 13 and 14. When they became pregnant as a result of the assaults, Masika and her daughters were forced to leave home after being disowned by her husband's relatives. That same year, Masika founded a ‘listening house’ at her home, located in the isolated village of Minova. A shelter for women to recover from violent acts, it provided medical help and consisted of several dozen houses for women to live in. In January 2009, former rebels, then newly integrated into the Congolese military, raped Katsuva for the fourth time. The former rebels said they attacked Katsuva because she accused them of assaulting women. Masika adopted 18 children over the years, all born of mothers who were sexually assaulted. In the decade before her death, in February 2016, she helped over 6,000 rape survivors.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - @natgeo photo by @stevewinterphoto

This is not an image you “LIKE” but needs to be shown and is published in Nat Geo Mag this month. Poaching of jaguars is rampant again like is was back in the 60’s and 70’s. It needs to be stopped and showing images like this is one way to make that happen - get it out in the press and hopefully Governments will be forced by their citizens to act. Stay tuned in the next few weeks for more like this, unfortunately.

In a community outside of Iquitos, Peru local indigenous people sell the skins of jaguars that they have killed.
One village chief told us he hunts jaguar all year long as in October someone from a “Chinese corporation” comes to buy the 4 canines from each jaguar. The skins do not sell for very much as the buyer does not want them and they are illegal to export for tourists, as are the teeth and any other part of the jaguar.

My @natgeo jaguar story came out this week - the December issue of National Geographic Magazine! and LOOK for our @NatGeowild Big Cat Week show which premiers on Dec 10th @ 9PM, filmed with the amazing @bertiegregory.

Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for people who think they receive the “power of the jaguar through their teeth”, Chinese Traditional Medicine and now Luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid @bertiegregory

My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Video by @BertieGregory. Extreme climber Alejo Sanchez descends down an enormous rock face deep in the heart of the unexplored Chiribiquete National Park, Colombia (turn sound on to hear him singing!). When he reached the bottom of this cliff, he made a remarkable discovery. He found a massive panel of ancient paintings featuring jaguars, people and more. This area is home to many of these paintings, representing some of the earliest evidence of humans in the Amazon. I shot this whilst accompanying a team from Fundacion Herencia, an incredible group of people doing real 21st century exploration. It’s very humbling to know that there are still places on this planet we know almost nothing about. But despite it’s remoteness, it is still under threat. 
We owe a huge thanks to Parks Colombia and the Colombian Ministry of Culture for their support. For more on this place, Stay tuned for @stevewinterphoto ‘s upcoming jaguar story for @natgeo Magazine. Also stayed tuned for our jaguar TV show for @natgeowild premiering in the US on December 10th. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures!

A manatee calf hitches a ride - piggy-back style - on it’s mom in the waters off the coast of Belize. While working on an @NatGeo story about the Mesoamerican Reef, I frequently went out early in the morning - using only a mask, snorkel and fins - to quietly search for wildlife. Manatees in this region are far less acclimated to humans than those in Florida, and can difficult to approach. They typically spend their nights within thick, protective mangroves, feeding on nearby seagrass beds during the day. All of these ecosystems are connected and conservation of the whole is vital since animals depend on each other for survival. 
This mom and calf were very tolerant of me, and allowed me into their world that morning.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Video by @joelsartore | Although orangebanded stingfish like this one at @GulfSpecimen Marine Lab are well camouflaged already, they’re also able to bury themselves in the sand all the way up to their eyes. Their frontal, claw-like rays are used both for movement along the muddy ocean floor and for capturing prey. These fish can be found in the Indo-West Pacific Ocean and are capable of delivering an incredibly painful sting.

Portrait of Maria from "Rojochique" village. She belongs to Rarámuris (Tarahumaras) people.

One of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had was to work at the northern part of Mexico, at the state of Chihuahua, in a region known as Sierra Madre. That’s where Rarámuris live. 
Etymologically rarámuri means “runner’s feet“ and in a broader sense it means “the ones with light feet“, referring to the most antique tradition they have: running. They’re known for their capacity to travel long distances at high speed in the complex topography of the region. 
The "Rarámuris" (Tarahumara) are believed to be descended from the Mogollon culture.
