natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Photo @ladzinski / Dark burn marks decorate the exterior of a #giantSequoia tree in #SequoiaNationalPark, likely the result of a lightning strike. The bark of these remarkable trees is quite fire retardant, encasing the tree with an armor as thick as 3 feet which protects the heartwood interior. These trees are among the oldest and the tallest in the world, endemic to the Sierra Mountains of California. They are currently faced with a new threat, draught and rising heat index. Some are beginning to show signs of stress, brought on from the affects of #climateChange. These trees can drink as much as 500 gallons of water per day, hinging their existence heavily on the need for abundant water. Photographed #onassignment for @natgeo

Six days a week thousands of tourist show up here to see and swim with dozens of hand fed whale sharks. These whale sharks, the largest fish in the sea swim through and around the hoards of people hoping for a morsel of krill. The feeding stops at noon and the whale sharks disappear to the depths. There is great debate and controversy about the effects of hand feeding these large sharks. Some scientist are concerned that this activity congregates the sharks making them vulnerable and potentially interrupts their natural feeding and migration patterns. Others argue that the sharks act as ocean. ambassadors teaching visitors about the sea and that the economy generated around these sharks makes them extremely valuable and protects them from harm.

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Video by @renan_ozturk @camp4collective// text by @jetbutterflies - The extremely elusive Himalayan Blue Sheep (Pseudois nayaur) in the snow at an altitude of 15,000 feet in Nepal’s little-known Dorpatan Hunting Reserve. These animals are one of the main food sources for Snow Leopards. ~

Despite spending upwards of a week climbing, crawling, and slogging through waist-deep snow in pursuit of the sheep, we were unable to get much closer than these images reveal. ~

Founded to attract international trophy hunters and tourism revenue, Dorpatan is one of the highest hunting areas on the globe. In the mid-nineties, the park was a stronghold for the Maoist rebels who waged a guerrilla war against the Nepal Government for over a decade. During this time, poaching of blue sheep and other exotic species was rampant. ~

Now, a handful of elite hunters travel here each year bringing much-needed employment to the area. The sheep population is now healthy and growing, although local poachers still operate in the more remote reaches of the park using weapons and techniques left over from the ciivl war. #himalayanhunt #nepaliloveyou ~

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Photo by @FransLanting Young albatrosses take many months to mature before they’re ready to take flight and head off to sea. These black-browed albatross chicks have a long way to go before they can lift their wings and become the supreme flyers sailors have admired for centuries. They’re all sitting on mud nests built by their parents, who are searching the open ocean for squid to take back to their downy offspring in the Falkland Islands. I love albatrosses! To me they are among the most amazing creatures on the planet. I never get tired of watching them and photographing them. Follow me @FransLanting for more images and stories from the Southern Ocean.

A young girl is surrounded by marijuana plants in a pygmy village overlooking Mount Nyiragongo, a volcano just outside Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo. This image was made for the @natgeo news story "Why Pygmies Are Dealing Weed to Survive," written by Nina Strochlic and published last week. Indigenous communities in the Congo have harvested marijuana as long as they can remember. Now, with no land to call their own, they turn to selling—with dire consequences.

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Photo: @andy_mann // A resting Cory's Shearwater huddles down for the evening on Selvagem Grande Island, home to the largest aggregation of this pelagic bird. The Shearwater spends most of its life at sea before returning right back here to nest. In 1971 the Portuguese government realized that the birds numbers were so low that they bought and protected these islands in a great act a leadership. By drawing this protective line around the islands, in turn, the inshore fish became protected. Since, the Portuguese have put in place full-time, marine law enforcement to hold that line. Much work is needed now to extend the protection into the sea but it's leadership like this that is making a difference on our world's fragile oceans.

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Video by @joelsartore | An eastern blue-tongued skink at the Lincoln Children's Zoo in Nebraska. 
This lizard can be found in bushlands and suburban areas throughout eastern Australia. They give birth to live young who immediately consume the egg sac upon arrival. When disturbed, they often hiss loudly and display their tongues, which can range in color from dark to light blue.

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) with words by @m_synnott (Mark Synnott) - We arrived on a grassy ridgetop where fifteen donkeys and a few local men were waiting for us. Hodja Gur Gur Ata, the 21-mile-long cliff that is home to Dark Star, loomed in the hazy sky two days walk to the north. Several of the team vaulted over the truck’s wooden sideboards to greet a middle-aged Tajik named Zhuraev “Sadik” Miraminu, chief of a nearby village called Dehibolo. Zhenya, our expedition’s elder statesman, embraced Sadik warmly—it was obvious they are old friends. In 1987, two Russians were exploring a massive cave system called Boy-Bulok, that lies within a cliff several kilometers to the south of Hodja Gur Gur Ata. Not far from the entrance to the cave, but past a vertical drop that can only be passed with a rope, the cavers found a skeleton. Based on the tattered clothing draped over the old bones, and the home made lamp lying nearby, the Russians assumed they had found the remains of a villager who had fallen into the cave. So they packed up the bones and carried them out of the cave. When they emerged they were engulfed in a raging blizzard. Frozen, staggering through the dark, the Russians found their way to Dehibolo, where fate led them to the home of Sadik’s family. Sadik was a teenage boy at the time, and he was sitting on the floor when the Russian’s pulled the bones and the battered lamp from their caving rucksacks. Sadik’s father, realizing these were the remains of an old friend who had gone missing 16 years ago, was deeply moved. Ever since, the Russians have remained close with Sadik’s family, and Sadik has provided logistical support for their expeditions. Pictured here and perched on the only semi-flat sloping ground for miles, is the teams base camp. All trips underground inside Dark Star began from this camp. #darkstar

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - photo by @daviddoubilet A DeHavilland Beaver floatplane carrying snorkelers flies along the channel separating Hook and Hardy reefs on Australia's Great Barrier Reef. The Great Barrier Reef is the worlds largest and most iconic coral reef system in the world and currently experiencing a 2017 coral bleaching event. High water temperatures cause the coral polyps to lose their symbiotic algae. The algae provides the coral valuable nutrients and gives coral its beautiful color. Bleached corals may recover if temperatures drop or they may die and become algae covered deadzones. Last year (2016) 90% of the 1200 mile long reef system experienced an unprecedented coral bleach event. The extent of the 2017 bleach event is yet to be determined.

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Photo by @stephenwilkes: Trash: once discarded, it is easy to forget. Out of sight, and out of mind. 
In the many series’ I have done in my many years as a documentary photographer, I find that a few images always carry a common theme - a near post-apocalyptic sense, reminding us of the impact our actions and lives inflict upon the earth. I share this photograph with the hope that it provides the inspiration to recognize the urgency and need for a solution to our impact on the earth.

On this day (26th March) in 1970, the USA announced its 500th nuclear explosion since 1945. During the Cold War, both the US and Soviet Union developed nuclear-capable ballistic missiles, that were capable of reaching any target in each other’s territory. The dawn of the era of Mutually Assured Destruction...
Here photographed, the Interior of a preserved Titan II nuclear missile launch complex. Looking down the 160' deep silo which would have contained a 'ready to launch' missile. The final Titan nuclear missile was decommissioned in 1987. Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.
The Titan II ICBM had one W-53 warhead with a 9 megaton yield, and formed the backbone of America's nuclear forces, launched from silos just like this.

natgeo'in Instagram Resmi - Video and words by @pedromcbride // River of Eden: The Upper Navua River, often dubbed the ‘River of Eden’, slices through the highlands of Fiji's Viti Levu and is unique not just for its staggering beauty, but for its protected status. That is unusual is this part of the world. In fact, the Navua represents one of the most unique conservation cooperatives in the world, which prevents logging, mining or roads within 200 meters from either side of the upper Navua river’s lapping waters. 
The small villages that line the Upper Navua looked into the future and decided that a flowing riiver, lined with jungle, is more valuable in the long term than any immediate profits from timber, gravel or even a dam project which some investors have explored as a possibility in the area.
