Our small team passed through this village on our way to climb Mt Everest, and we spent over an hour in the company of Nawang Paljor. He burned incense, chanted traditional blessings, and burned some juniper as our team sat quietly reflecting on the task that we had taken on. A few weeks later, after many trials and tribulations, the bulk of our team safely stood on the top of the highest mountain in the world.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @joelsartore | This Malay eagle owl was photographed at Jurong Bird Park, part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore (@wrs.ig). This species can be found in the Malay Peninsula in Southeast Asia and prey on large insects, birds, small mammals and reptiles. It’s likely that they mate for life and they’ve been known to become very attached to their nesting locations. In many instances the owls will return to their site year after year, and if one mate dies the other will continue to maintain the same territory.
For a portrait of this owl, check out @joelsartore.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @bertiegregory. The biggest fish in the world, the whale shark. Despite being a shark that can grow over 12m long (40ft) and
weigh over 20 tonnes, they don't have big teeth. Instead, they have about 3000 very very tiny teeth. Similarly to the baleen whales (e.g. humpbacks), they are filter feeders. Here you can see this huuuge individual sucking in a big mouthful of water to extract the plankton. This whale shark was part of the largest known aggregation of whale sharks on the planet off the coast of Mexico. Shot for @natgeo and @stevewinterphoto.

View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // After a long, hot day shooting on the western coast of Madagascar, I came upon these adorable girls. They laughed and giggled, dragging their fishing net in the shallow waters of the tidal break in front of the fishing town of Maraonsetra. In broken French, and with a lot of sass and pride, they explained that they belong to the Vezo people, a semi nomadic tribe whose life is tied to the sea.  After school they go fishing for their family’s dinner. A pretty big responsibility, I thought, reflecting on the questionable abilities of my own children to provide for my family. Like most kids in Madagascar and thanks to foreign aid from western countries, these girls have access to primary school, but as they learn to read and write, they also have to learn to become providers for their family. 
I look forward to sharing more images of my work with the "people from the sea" on my #instagram feed at @CristinaMittermeier

View natgeo's Instagram What's on your menu for lunch? If you are a brown snake eagle, it would be an olive grass snake. We were driving through the bush in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia, when I spotted a bird under a small tree. After watching for a few minutes, I saw the twitch of a snake tail, so I knew the eagle had its prey. It wasn't long and the eagle ripped the snake in half and proceeded to slowly swallow the tail half. Unable to devour the entire section, the eagle flew off with 8 inches of snake still hanging from its mouth.

View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @argonautphoto (Aaron Huey) Fallen Roof ruin in #BearsEarsNationalMonument , Utah.  This Anasazi ruin has 3 fully intact rooms and negative hand prints on the soot stained ceiling.  These prints were created by spraying pigment from the mouth around their hand.  By 1300 AD Ancestral Puebloans (AKA Anasazi) had vanished from the area.  These could go back to 1 AD or earlier.  Bears Ears is one of several Monuments up for review under the current administration to possibly be rescinded in the coming weeks.  Difficult question: will Monument status protect this ruin or drive tens of thousands to this spot possibly making it "loved to death"? Will rescinding open up huge tracts of land to oil and gas development spoiling this beautiful landscape?  Hard questions on the ground here.

View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @timlaman of @tbfrost recovering from anaphylactic shock (stinging ants  got me!) in the remote rainforests of Borneo while On assignment documenting the lives of wild orangutans. (BTW - This was taken 3 yrs ago and I'm fully recovered :)) Despite such incidents, Like the one in this photo, Fieldwork is what photographers live for: time out in the world, in the quiet of the wild, or those few hours on some street corner sharing a meal with a remarkable person whose story is as of yet unknown. Sometimes though things go wrong: cars breakdown , permits aren't granted, you get lost, cameras break, natural disasters occur , and sometimes it's just tiny, tiny black ants in Borneo that turn a great day following Orangutans into one where you worry for your life. But that is life in general, sometimes things go great and sometimes things go wrong. I like to think we photographers, especially those of us lucky enough to work with National Geographic, are beyond privileged even when you consider the difficulties of field work because people and animals all over the world share their stories with us, they let us into their lives. I'm excited to be in Bangalore, India for the next week to share such stories of what it is like to be a young photographer telling stories about wildlife and people at the non profit @naturein_focus photography festival, India's largest gathering of dedicated wildlife and conservation photographers taking place August 18-19.

Two lion cubs looking up as the pride takes a stroll in Tswalu Kalahari Reserve’s. Do you know that lions can live in a variety of habitats ranging from deserts, moist savannas and grasslands? But they need prey and big prey! Lions usually snack on species such as zebra, wildebeest, Cape buffalo, kudu and even giraffe. That’s the price you have to pay for being a big cat – you need a lot of food! On Tswalu lions love to tuck into Gemsbuck and blue wildebeest! 
We need to protect African lions and other big cats because they are the apex predators in ecosystems. Did you know that if we lose apex predators then populations of prey animals can increase, plants can be over utilized and this can even de-stabilize river banks! Remember everything in nature is interconnected. National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop lion-cattle conflict and monitoring big cats numbers with camera traps. Visit https://www.nationalgeographic.org/projects/big-cats-initiative/ to find out how you can help save big cats today, and remember by saving apex predators like lions and tigers we keep ecosystems balanced and healthy!

During the whole summer and especially around the 15th of August, almost all the Italians try to get some days off from work and go to vacation, mostly at the sea. Riviera Romagnola, around 50 kilometers of coast in the region of Emilia Romagna, in the east side of Italy is for sure one of the top five destinations for Italians and foreigners that want to visit Italy.  The towns on the Riviera Romagnola are packed with every kind of hotel, restaurant, bar and beach club, all of which are within steps of the sea. The beaches are full of people from 8:00am until sunset and find a free space for your towel in this period can be really difficult. #summer #rivieraromagnola #romagna #italy #beaches #beach #sea #vacation 1583361081660593132_787132

It took him a long time and a lot of effort to be able to stand up only to collapse again. We let him be. It was one of the hardest decisions I have faced in a long time.  I want the images to be able to tell his story.  I want to be able to tell the story of his species. He was once a huge male polar bear and now he is a bag of bones, reduced to skin hanging loosely off of his once massive frame.  He will be dead soon and I want him to go in peace after living a life as a great polar nomad.  We cannot prove that he is in this condition because of a lack of sea ice but is it a glimpse into the future as ice reaches its lowest extent in recorded history? I hear a lot of suggestions from people like “let’s take polar bears to Antarctica so they can eat penguins” or “let’s put out styrofoam platforms so they can be on the ocean”. These suggestions are irrational but it does mean that people do care. The only way polar bears can be saved is by reducing our global carbon footprint and finding renewable energy. 
It breaks my heart, but the @Sea_Legacy team is shifting into high gear to connect the world to our ailing  ecosystems. #followus @PaulNicklen @Sea_Legacy  @natgeopristineseas  and @CristinaMittermeier to learn about our mission to create healthy and abundant oceans for us and our planet. #bear #polarbear #nature 1583104633835796677_787132

Lightning storms are frequent throughout the summer and a major case of wild fires. Sage brush has suffered severely from increased burning due to invasive cheat grass, which when dry turns the landscape into a tinder box. The sage brush eco-system is the dominant landscape of the west and a hugely important eco-system - home to sage grouse, golden eagles, bobcats, rattlesnakes and many more.
