This is Steeple Jason in the Falkland Islands and is home to the largest black-browed albatross colony in the world.  Steeple Jason is owned and managed by The Wildlife Conservation Society, a partner of @natgeo.  It was donated to them by a philanthropist who believes in wild habitat restoration and protection.  If you protect it, it will thrive.  Excited for our story that is coming out in @natgeo in the coming months.  #followme on @paulnicklen to celebrate the beauty of #protectedareas.

Check natgeo's Instagram Photo by @petekmuller. Elephants graze on the savanna in Kenya's Masai Mara National Park. I've been shooting pictures in this incredible reserve for a forthcoming National Geographic Magazine story about enhanced anti-poaching operations. These efforts are far-reaching, of course, aiming to deter ivory poaching but also to interrupt the practice of bushmeat hunting, which remains a persistent problem in certain areas of the park.  Before this assignment, I'd only visited the Mara as a tourist. It's incredible to see all that goes on behind the scenes.

Check natgeo's Instagram Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @tooyoungtowed // Kadiatu, a teenage obstetric fistula survivor,
reacts to being able to walk safely and independently with the use of splints on her feet. She was participating in "Fistula Camp" at the Aberdeen Women's Center in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Obstetric fistula is one of the most devastating and serious childbirth injuries and is the result of extreme pressure and tissue damage during prolonged or obstructed labor.  When the fetus cannot fit through a mother’s pelvis due to her small stature stature, and if a Caesarean section delivery is not available to end the ordeal, the baby is usually stillborn and a fistula — or abnormal opening between the vagina and rectum or bladder — forms, resulting in severe incontinence. In many cases, like Kadiatu’s, women and girls can also experience peroneal nerve injury, resulting in leg weakness, foot drop and difficulty in walking. Those who attended the camp underwent surgeries to repair their fistulas, treat their decreased mobility, and improve their self-esteem.

This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Paris, France. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo, including this one. The show ends tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 24, and is complete with educational information about the dangers of #childmarriage and the efforts underway around the world to end the practice – including our work at our nonprofit organization of the same name, @TooYoungToWed.

Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania.
The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the annual dry season. It covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers (1,100 square miles.) The landscape is composed of granitic ridges, river valley, and swamps. Vegetation is a mix of Acacia woodland, Commiphora-Combretumwoodland, seasonally flooded grassland, and Baobab trees.

Check natgeo's Instagram This past summer I traveled to the Dead Sea in Israel, and was captivated by this amazing landscape. Taking in this serene scene of the beautiful blue salt water in contrast with the algae filled green pond was a bittersweet moment as I learned that this was created by the surface shrinking 30% in the last 20 years. The Dead Sea has been shrinking at a rate of more than one meter per year causing major sink holes and heavily receding sea shores. Major parts of the Dead Sea are now closed to the public due to some of these environmental changes. To see more images like this follow me @stephenwilkes.

Check natgeo's Instagram Photos by @dominicbracco On Tuesday Sept. 19th Mexico was struck by a 7.1 earthquake, the second quake of three this month, leaving at least 286 dead across the country. Within minutes thousands of civilian volunteers, police, military, worked together at times with their bare hands to uncover survivors. Work sites became centers for aid. Parks filled with donations of water, medicine, and food for those in Mexico City and surrounding areas. Much of the effort continues, especially in rural communities. Today a 6.1 earthquake hit, sending a nervous population again into the streets. #fuerzamexico 1610331862705457462_787132

Check natgeo's Instagram Photo and caption by @petekmuller. Along the Mathioya river, the sound of rushing water makes the world beyond feel like tracing. Deep in Kenya's Muranga County, the river meanders between hills and sustains artisanal tea plantations, which in turn sustain the community. Foot paths span its banks, from which I cast my fly line with rainbow trout in mind. Owing to Muranga's high altitude, the days are both radiant and temperate at once, allowing for comfortable wading in pursuit of fish. In between assignments, I visit Muranga as often as I possible. It is, perhaps, the most serene and restorative place I know.

Today is world rhino day and here is a video I shot of some rhino babies with my assistant @alexbraczkowski at the @careforwild rhino orphanage in South Africa! These youngsters lost their mothers but were taken in by the orphanage and they're almost ready for release back to the wild! We need to stand up for our rhinos and say no to illegal wildlife products like rhino horn! #wildaid Rhino horns belong on rhinos not in dagger handles and traditional eastern medicine! 
Rhinos are so important to not only our cultures, but to the ecosystems in which they live. They are mega herbivores and serve a crucial function in the savanna, desert and woodland habitats in which they live across southern and East Africa. 
Follow me @stevewinterphoto for more shots of awesome wildlife and the people that live alongside it.

Check natgeo's Instagram Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @TooYoungToWed // Niamat weeps over the grave of his daughter Khalida, who set herself on fire after enduring years of abuse from her husband and in-laws. Her younger sister, Khadija, 8 (right), was her main caregiver while she lay dying with burns. The family lives in a small village outside of Jalalabad, Afghanistan. I first encountered the issue of child marriage while working as a news photographer in Afghanistan, where I met several girls in a Herat burn ward. More than 1/2 of the girls who attempted suicide by self-immolation were married as children. Poverty, strong patriarchal values and poor access to education are behind Afghanistan’s high child marriage rates. This April, Afghanistan's Ministry of Women’s Affairs and the Ministry of Information and Culture launched a “National Action Plan To Eliminate Early and Child Marriage” to better address the issue.

This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Puteaux, Paris. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo.

Check natgeo's Instagram Image by @beverlyjoubert. His horn is covered in green scrapes - paint residue from a custom-made container that carried him out of a poaching hotspot in South Africa to relative safety in Botswana. Accompanied by vast security detail, he has travelled by plane, truck and helicopter to reach this new home. #RhinosWithoutBorders is working to move 100 animals to keep them from being poached for their horns and to create new breeding nuclei - an idea that saved the rhino from extinction once before. Despite huge anti-poaching efforts and millions of dollars, the levels of poaching are still extreme with rhinos killed at a rate of 3-4 a day - an unsustainable number. But dozens of these huge animals have already been moved to safety and the project has seen the birth of 7 calves so far. This #WorldRhinoDay, as this rhino makes his way into a safer land of plentiful water and lush grasses let us celebrate those people who work tirelessly, putting their own lives on the line in order to save these species. And let us also celebrate the successes that are happening despite the current incessant illegal trade in rhino horn. 1609653468242207577_787132

Check natgeo's Instagram Video by @joelsartore | This beautiful European barn owl was rescued and rehabilitated in Italy by Il Futuro della Biodiversita Locale in Italy. This owl’s rescuers suspected that she had accidentally consumed poisoned prey and was nearing death upon her arrival at the rehabilitation center. Every hour she received medication and meals until she was healthy again. Eventually, she became strong enough to safely be released back into the wild.
Barn owls are the most widespread of any owl species, thriving on six continents and on many islands. This bird’s ghostly appearance, eerie call, and habit of roosting in places like church belfries and abandoned buildings has provoked a lot of negative superstition. However, since barn owls prey mainly on rats and mice, their presence has actually proven to be quite beneficial for some. Barn owls have very soft feathers, which help them fly silently while on the hunt. Their ears are lopsided on the sides of their heads, one higher than the other, which helps them to triangulate the sound made by prey, and detect its exact location, even in total darkness.
Il Futuro della Biodiversita Locale’s goal is to collect, rehabilitate and release animals back into the wild. Since late 2016 they’ve collected over 300 animals and released more than 80. The organization involves teenagers in the release of the recuperated animals to help them become aware of the importance of caring for the environment. For more about this conservation program, follow @ilfuturodellabiodiversita and @greenteenteam.
In order to help save the lives of barn owls near you, always use chemical-free, non-toxic rodent control.
Check out @joelsartore to see an image of another barn owl and learn more about these majestic creatures.

Today is World Rhino Day!! Rhinos are being massacred for their horns. Last year 1054 rhinos were killed in South Africa alone.  Rhino horn has been found to have no medicinal value. It is made of keratin, the same tissue as our hair or nails - so chew your fingernails - and SAVE THE RHINO!

Check natgeo's Instagram Video by @bertiegregory. A female bottlenose dolphin and her calf glide through the waters off Gubal Island in the northern Red Sea. I was lucky enough to spend over an hour with this pair as they swam laps around me. It's incredible to think that bottlenose dolphins are capable of diving well over 250m deep. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures. 1609449610320802922_787132
