Photo by @amivitale. Kamara, a @lewa_wildlife rhino keeper introduces #Samburu warriors to baby #rhinos. None of the warriors had ever seen a rhino in the their life and some had never even seen a photo of a rhino. Their eyes got wide and they became very protective of them. The young warriors from Northern Rangelands Trust community conservancies have been visiting to learn about conservation practices such as sustainable land use, grazing programs and endangered species conservation. Much needed attention has been focused on the plight of wildlife but very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the frontlines of the poaching wars and the incredible work that is being done by @NRT_KENYA @lewa_wildlife and @NATURE_africa to strengthen them. These communities hold the key to saving Africa's great animals. The LEWA wildlife conservancy is a globally renowned conservation organization that acts as a catalyst and mode for conservation. The Northern Rangelands Trust works to develop resilient community conservancies which transform people’s lives, secure peace and conserve natural resources. @lewa_wildlife @NRT_KENYA, @NATURE_africa @nature_org #magicalkenya #lewa #rhino #kenya #wild #nature #warriors #wildlife #conservation #animals #NikonNoFilter #nofilter #nikon #d4 #nikonambassador #amivitale #photojournalism #onassignment @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa @natgeo

Photo by @ciriljazbec // I have been working hard on @natgeo assignment in northern Greenland. It is a privilege to get such opportunity and document this incredible part of the world. I have been living with families in small settlements, following hunters and fishermen on several boat trips and trying to capture this challenging times. It is a tough environment with very unstable weather where you need to learn how to be patient and respect power of the nature. My work from Greenland is one of the chapters in a long-term project concerned with the human face of climate change as it threatens various low-lying regions. #Greenland #climate #change #iceberg #fjord #hunting #trip #natgeo

Photo by @BrianSkerry A baby lemon shark, about 12” in length swims in foot-deep water within a mangrove in the Bahamas. These shark pups will spend the first 2-3 years of their lives living in mangrove nurseries until they are big enough to compete in the sea. Photographed on assignment for @natgeo and on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC in The @brianskerry exhibit, Portraits of Planet Ocean. @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #portraitsofplanetocean #sharks

pwilcox22714 : You act like you are great, but you're more of a narcissist. You believe that you are a "really good American" because you donate to charities. You just scream fake.
jackson.kunz : @heatherdzur. These comments your making just makes me sad that your ideals have turned this way watch Donnie Vincent's video titled "who we are" its 7 minutes of your life that might allow you to open your eyes to enjoying the creation God has given us.
heatherdzur : @shilohih - I love that you look at my page when yours is private! I stated from the very beginning that I eat meat sometimes from local humane farms here in Maine. I also donate to much more than my local animal shelter. I believe I do have the facts right - and I know a lot more about how complicated things are because I have a shoe business.
heatherdzur : @shilohih - my point is that a lot of hunting is done recreationally - and I don't think that's right. I'm frankly astonished at how many of you defend hunting.
jbonedog : So you call me a good American. But two hours ago you stated That hunters are low life's. My wife is also a hunter. She is also a nurse, she dedicated her life to helping others. She loves animals...but according to you she is also a low life for being a hunter
heatherdzur : @jradanthony - well I hope you vote! I really don't think I've lost this argument. You seem to have a lot of facts at hand to defend your way of life. I have every right to be against hunting even if I eat meat. I know you think you're more "authentic" than I am - which I think is sad for someone to have to actually state about themselves. I'll keep my opinions - however flawed you think they are - and you can keep killing whatever you want.
heatherdzur : @pwilcox22714 - if you read the full comments - someone else stated they were a good American - and I was simply stating that I am too even if I don't like hunting.
heatherdzur : I feel like I'm in a Fox News bubble...

Photo @ladzinski / Any rain is good news, especially when you're experiencing the third year of the worst drought in the past century. Such is the case with California. I shot this at sunset about a week ago on a quick stop into Malibu. The moody evening was perfect for a long exposure while I watched the waves roll in with @danahrichardson / @natgeocreative @3stringsproductions

Image by @paulnicklen for @natgeo and @sea_legacy. Species are shaped over time to thrive in a certain environment. The evolution of traits perfected for the cold marries the penguin to its polar ecosystem. While penguins are often portrayed on land, waddling about and huddling together to keep warm, it is only when we see them in the water that we realize what they are truly specialized for. Streamlined, with flippers for propulsion - not flight, capable of reaching great depths and speeds to dive for food. Emperor penguins have even evolved to excrete micro-bubbles of air to speed up to avoid predators. Image 4 in 'Animals in their Environment' series by @paulnicklen this week. #emperorpenguins #penguin #environment #wildlife #natureisspeaking #nature #beauty #underwater #photography @thephotosociety @natgeocreative

Photo by @renan_ozturk @camp4collective // #onassignment for the #MyanmarClimb. Bleeding feet, aching limbs, bug bitten, still open hearted. Here the women of our expedition, @taylorfreesolo @emilyaharrington and @hilareeoneill, expose how physically depleting this trip has been. We have descended safely and now wear the jungle on every inch of our selves - it's thorny vines and steep muddy cliffs, it's rugged unpredictable alpine terrain, it's indigenous people and their generosity. As @thenorthface athletes, we are used to suffering for a first ascent or a new approach to a high mountain peak, and that suffering is a privilege in many ways. This expedition, however, is by far the hardest most of us have pushed physically and emotionally for such an extended period of time. We came to solve the mystery of Southeast Asia's highest peak, but deep down we came for the adventure and story - one that would play out regardless of a summit. As a climber/filmmaker, I came here because this kind of adventure is rare and real; beset with days full of grit and pain, and nights spent living amongst the local people belonging to this land. I wanted to come away with more than just imagery of snowy mountains and heros. What we have gotten is a beautiful unraveling - a trip that has broken us all down and exposed the true nature of our character and of those around us. @hilareeoneill @emilyaharrington @coryrichards @md_jenkins @taylorfreesolo
