Photo by Stephen Wilkes @stephenwilkes | Breaths from wildebeests are illuminated in the golden light of the Serengeti. These creatures actually help facilitate the migration of other smaller grazing animals across Tanzania. Over two million animals, including gazelles, wildebeests, and zebras make this migration every year.

Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | Andean flamingos dot the shallow waters of Bolivia's Laguna Colorada (elevation 14,000 feet), colored pink due to natural hot springs that provide nutrients for red algae to bloom. The birds have specially adapted beaks to feed on diatoms and algae less than one millimeter in diameter. #lawnornaments To see the beauty of our world from above, follow @geosteinmetz

Photos by Lucas Foglia @lucasfogliaphoto | How do you save a rainforest? Create a national park, many conservationists would say. What if you’re a nation with 45 million acres of rainforest—an area about the size of Washington State—and a per capita income of just over $8,000 a year. “A tree left standing is not valuable to a family who can’t feed their children three square meals a day,” says Pradeepa Bholanath, head of planning and development for the Guyana Forestry Commission. With the help of international donors, Guyana is pioneering an approach to protecting the trees that cover more than four-fifths of its surface. To make the rainforest last, it’s using it up slowly. As of now, the only road that transects Guyana’s rainforest is mostly unpaved and often impassable during the rainy season.

Video by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | Found in lowland forests in northeastern New Guinea, the Edward’s fig parrot relies on its predominantly green plumage to help it blend in among the dense vegetation. As its name implies, this species loves to consume figs as well as a variety of other fruits. To see a still image of this vibrant bird, follow me, @joelsartore. Footage recorded @loroparque. #parrot #colorful #fig #photoark

Photo by Luca Locatelli @lucalocatelliphoto | A solar field surrounded by wind turbines in Calabria, southern Italy. A mostly agricultural landscape is mutating into a land tapped for energy production, to feed the growing demand for renewables. My work revolves around the making of the future, how our society transitions through new ways of living, and how technology is changing our approach to the environment.

Photo by Jimmy Chin @jimmychin | Josh Huckaby drops in on the 3,000-foot granite wave of El Cap during production of @freesolofilm. When Josh isn’t motoring around Indonesia on a motorcycle with his surfboard searching for some shade, he’s climbing El Cap or working with Yosemite Search and Rescue. We were lucky to have him as our rigger and safety consultant on the production.

Photo by Paul Nicklen @paulnicklen | With the sun below the horizon, a group of large humpback whales lunge-feeds in Monterey Bay, California. They use the surface of the ocean as a net, forcing herring against this layer and then burst through this tension, mouth agape, filling their cavernous mouths with thousands of anchovies. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for more wildlife from our vast oceans.

Photo by Anastasia Taylor-Lind @anastasiatl | Shamina Yasmin gave birth to her daughter, Sharmin, in a forest after fleeing a Myanmar army attack on her Rohingya village, Taung Bazar. When her water broke, Shamina had been walking for four days—she hadn't eaten, had no water, and was in labor all night, occasionally attended to by another fleeing woman who used a thorn from forest cane to cut Sharmin's umbilical cord when she was delivered. It took another 10 days for them to reach Bangladesh. Kutupalong refugee camp, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

Photo by David Chancellor @chancellordavid | Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention. Here we’re transporting a heavily sedated cheetah from Samburu National Park, in northern Kenya, wrapped in a mosquito net. Called at short notice to attend to a badly injured cat, we decided that once it was sedated, the safest and softest way to transport it was to wrap in the net, borrowed from a villager. Sitting next to that cat, snoring gently, was one of the best drives I’ve had on Kenyan roads.

Video by Ronan Donovan @ronan_donovan | This is Bearzilla. Estimated to weigh in the 600-700 lb range, this is a really big male for the Rocky Mountains. What's interesting is that most bears in March emerge from hibernation lean and muscular, having burned through their fat stores. But not Bearzilla. I spent a few weeks watching him gorging on several bison carcasses along the Yellowstone River in March. Of the six other male grizzlies coming by to feed, Bearzilla was by far the largest and most rotund. He was also the only bear that was relaxed enough to nap and play near the carcasses. The rest of the bears ate fast and got outta there quickly. In this video, Bearzilla gets annoyed with the ravens, swats a European starling, and plays with his meal. It's a brief window into the day in the life of a Yellowstone grizzly. Video taken while on assignment for @natgeo Hope over to @ronan_donovan for more photos and videos of Bearzilla #yellowstonenationalpark #bearzilla
