natgeo Photograph by @paulnicklen. This was an @sea_legacy expedition to Svalbard, Norway 2014 to document climate change. Andrea Matzen (@ichstehnichtaufdich) is a nautical cadet on the Hanse Explorer. Wind, great light and her faux fur parka allowed for a beautiful portrait while we were in search of polar bears. #climatechange #sealegacy @natgeocreative @natgeo @thephotosociety #nature #fashion #picoftheday 1h

natgeo Photo @coryrichards What is 'The Meaning of North'? Read all about the incredible ecosystem of Franz Josef Land in the August issue of @natgeo. The lonely archipelago lies 800 miles north of the arctic circle in Russia's Barents Sea and stands as a barometer for climate change and our impacts both above and below the surface. Incredible story by @davidquammen big thanks to @andy_mann @thephotosociety @thenorthface @natgeocreative @3stringsproductions @petzl_official @clifbarcompany 16h

natgeo Photo by @chamiltonjames (Charlie Hamilton James) A beaver swims over to inspect its dam. Beavers are extraordinary engineers. They create dams to flood areas of forest so that the can access food safely. They can raise and lower the level of their ponds and they dig canals to transport food and building material. Shot on assignment in Teton National Park, WY for a special issue on the Greater Yellowstone Eco-system. 23h

natgeo @paulnicklen taking a trip down memory lane. Dr. Mitch Taylor tags a large male polar bear in a summer den. It was the point in my career (1994) when I knew I could be more effective as a photojournalist than a biologist by shining a light on this important species and climate change by working with @natgeo and @sea_legacy. #polarbear #bear #arctic #instagram #nature #wildlife @thephotosociety #climatechange #sealegacy 1d

natgeo Photo @ladzinski / Rock climbing has many genres to it, it's not always about just getting to the top. In many facets of the sport it's primarily about the movement involved and the purity of the rock formation.

natgeo Photo by @paleyphoto (Matthieu Paley). Early morning, a girl from the Khan's camp is getting #water for tea. At 14.000 feet, the camp's spring freezes overnight and the #ice must be broken open with a steel bar. I am posting images from 2012 expeditions to #Afghanistan's Pamir mountains, now focusing on food habits of the Afghan Kyrgyz high-altitude community. Part 6 of my @natgeo story on the "Evolution of Diet" coming out in September. For the full SERIES, head over to @paleyphoto.

natgeo IPhone photo by @stephsinclairpix of Larain, 18 of Pakistan, as she participates in a skit against #childmarriage with other young members of an inspiring international group called #YouthForChange, which advised leaders on the #girlsummit in London. Some of the most powerful words I heard this week were from these amazing young people. It was humbling and beautiful and I have to admit that I was brought to tears by this performance. For more info on the group visit their website voicesofyouth.org they state that more than 125 million girls and women alive today have suffered some form of female genital mutilation and cutting (FGM/C) in the 29 countries where the practice is concentrated. #tooyoungtowed #girls #youth 1d

natgeo @paulnicklen just returned from the Arctic in Svalbard, Norway on a climate change expedition with a private donor for @sea_legacy There was no sea ice to be found around Spitsbergen and I have never seen the Nordaustlandet ice cap gush such high volumes of water. I have borne witness to a changing Arctic for the past twenty years. The Arctic could be completely free of sea ice during the summer months in the next 10 to 20 years. What will be the effects on all wildlife populations that require sea ice in order to survive? #nature #picoftheday @natgeo @photosociety @cristinamittermeier #sealegacy #climatechange #polarobsession 2d

natgeo Photo by @paleyphoto (Matthieu Paley). In her yurt, Pegich makes flatbread called "#naan". The flour was bartered against yak in the lower valleys, a minimum 10 days round trip on foot. Numbering only about 1400, Afghan Kyrgyz are the smallest #minority in Afghanistan. They live in one of the remotest part of High Asia. I am posting images from 2012 expeditions to #Afghanistan's Pamir mountains, now focusing on food habits of this small high-altitude community. Part 6 of my @natgeo story on the Evolution of diet - how we are what we ate - coming out in September.

natgeo The #ChachapoyaMummies are related to Inca mummies ... ... The people lived in an area of what is now northern Peru--an area that the Inca wanted for their own. The Chachapoyan lost a war with the #Inca and became part of the empire. The mummies are about 500 years but a recent study says that two of them might be about a 1000 years old. "Chachapoya" is derived from "sacha puya", which is an Incan word meaning "cloud people." Sometimes, therefore, these mummies are reffered to as "Mummies of the Cloud" because they lived in a very damp region. They are well preserved because they were buried in a very dry cave. These mummies were shot at the museo de #Leymebamba in Chachapoys, Peru. @thephotosociety @robertclarkphoto 3d

natgeo Photo by @Amivitale for a @natgeo story on the Oil Boom in the Bakken.
Twin brothers Asher and Jason Tolbert play in hay intside their neighbors barn in Bainville, Montana. The Tolberts moved here in 2011 as part of a massive migration of workers chasing their fortunes in the Bakken. Like many families of the boom, they chose rural Montana to avoid the bustle at the center of the oil rush 30 miles away in Williston, North Dakota.

natgeo @paulnicklen on assignment for @natgeo with @cristinamittermeier. Strict rules at the Crystal River Springs are established to control interactions between people and manatees. This swimmer is top shelf in letting the manatee pet him. A civil-libertarian group is petitioning to have manatees down-listed from their endangered status so they can drive their boats faster. This is especially dangerous during the cold winter months when the manatees seek refuge in the springs to avoid hypothermia. Since 2010 over 1700 manatees have died due to cold shock. Should we allow boat traffic to achieve high speeds in these shallow waters where the manatees come to rest and seek shelter. A large percentage of these slow moving sirenians bear the scars of prop strikes already. #picoftheday #crystalriver @photosociety #wildlife @sea_legacy #sealegacy 3d
