Discover natgeo's Instagram Photo by @petekmuller. Two elephants graze on the savanna in Kenya's Masai Mara National Park. After nearly a decade of living and working on the African continent, I am still amazed to watch these large creatures in the wild. And while we have ascribed a near-majestic status to elephants, it is important to remember they are but one component of a vast and interdependent ecosystem. Follow @petekmuller  as I chronicle conservation efforts in the Mara.  #Elephants #africa #kenya #masaimara #maasaimaranationalreserve #conservation #wildlife #nature #animals 1607419336556766566_787132

Discover natgeo's Instagram Video by @joelsartore | Bald eagles aren’t born with that 'bald' look. When they’re young, these birds have a fully brown plumage and don’t develop the white feathers on their heads for another four or five years. During courtship, bald eagles display an incredible aerial dance wherein they grasp each other by the talons and spin in mid-air. After this strange display, those who mate will stay together for their entire lives, which can last up to 38 years! The two eagles will work together to build their record-breaking, 4.5 foot wide nests, and even take turns incubating their eggs.
Bald eagles are a true conservation success story. They were once abundant in the United States, but when European settlers arrived, their numbers dropped drastically. In 1940 Congress passed an act to protect them, and though the act was helpful in protecting eagles, their populations didn’t really start to grow again until the early 1970s when a deadly insecticide called DDT was finally banned. In 2007, bald eagles were removed from the endangered species list and there are now about 9,700 nesting pairs in the lower 48 states.
This bald eagle was photographed at Raptor Recovery at @fontenelleforest where injured and orphaned birds of prey are rehabilitated in Nebraska.

Countries in the midst of development often don’t have the infrastructure to deal with the garbage they produce. As a result, much of it is burned, releasing smoke and other kinds of pollution into the atmosphere.

Where do you look to for examples of how to live your life? ~

We live in a gilded age. We barter in miracles and medicine. We fly. We photograph distant planets and galaxies. We are more connected than ever before, than many of us ever imagined possible. ~

Yet we still seek and we search. We face self-doubt. We run inside when it rains. ~

Discover natgeo's Instagram Video by @CristinaMittermeier // At the crack of dawn, one day in late September, the long-drawn ban on Galicia’s famed cockles is lifted and fifteen hundred men and women, on foot and on boats, rush to the cockle beds of the Ria de Noia to get their share.  The women go by foot and they drag their clam rakes across the sandy bottom. Buried in the sand and growing in the shallow waters of the estuary, the cockles have been protected by a ban that shelters them for several months in which no harvest is allowed and the small bivalves are allowed to reproduce and grow.  Once the ban is lifted, the men and women of this small medieval-old village will converge every morning in the shallow waters for 3 hours a day, every day for 3-4 months to make a living from this delicious bivalve.  This is an age old practice that has ensured the sustainable harvest of this small clam, but few places execute it more perfectly than Noia, where the community works together; the participation of women is valued; and the cockles are healthy, big, delicious and very, very valuable. 
Al abrir la veda de berberecho, cientos de mujeres van a pie a cosecharlo, mientras que los hombres van en barco. Bien gestionado, como se hace en Noia, este riquísimo recurso no sólo es sostenible, es una importante fuente de ingresos en esta región de la bellísima Galicia.

A Batfish glides through the warm waters off of the Ogasawara Islands, Japan, feeding on plankton in the late day light filtering through the shallow sea. The Ogasawara Islands, 620 miles south of mainland Japan, are often referred to as the “Galápagos of the Orient” for their immense biological diversity.

Discover natgeo's Instagram Image by @joelsartore | The queen of this #pollinatormonday is this no-spot ladybug from Salt Lake City, Utah. Did you know that there are more than 5,000 species of ladybug in the world? These industrious pollinators are highly desired by gardeners and farmers alike, as they feed on pests such as mites, mealybugs, and aphids. The name "ladybug" was coined by farmers in Europe during the Middle Ages who prayed to the Virgin Mary when pests began eating their crops. After ladybugs came and wiped out the invading insects, the farmers named them "beetle of Our Lady." This eventually was shortened to "lady beetle" and finally "ladybug”. Even today, many gardeners order ladybugs as a natural way to combat pests and improve crop yields. In addition to fighting pests, these beetles secondarily feed on both pollen and nectar, and thus pollinate many different kinds of flowering plants and legumes. 1606620608862862321_787132

Discover natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @paulnicklen// We called this huge male brown bear, Scarface as he had a huge gash across his nose.  He was massive and is getting bigger by the minute as he gorges on salmon before his long winters sleep.  He was also the most gentle and calm bear on the salmon feeding grounds.  Other bears respected him and gave him space but he fed on salmon next to people and female bears with cubs.  He regularly came to within 20 feet of us  I love old, dominant, wise bears like this old fella.  Generally, they are calm, confident, and shy.  I felt incredibly fortunate that he allowed us to witness his greatness and fishing efficiency.  I am sure that this bear would look huge, intimidating and scary in a hunters scope from 200 yards away. At 10 yards away I could hear his breathing, see the detail in his fur, hear the crunching of salmon and peacefully look into his eyes. #Followme on @paulnicklen Nicklen to see a lot more of these majestic bears of Alaska. #respect #bear #gratitude #misunderstood #bethechange #mpa 1606060310682469405_787132
