Here is a female tired from hunting while swimming in the river, now she rests on the riverbank at sunset.  Nature is perfection. It gives us the air we breathe and the water we all need for our life. 
My @natgeo jaguar story come out this week - the December issue of National Geographic Magazine! and LOOK for our @NatGeowild Big Cat Week show which premiers on Dec 10th @ 9PM, filmed with @bertiegregory in Dec. 2017.

Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid 
My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have.

Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water.
If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them.
So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves.  Please visit CauseAnUproar.org to find out other ways to become involved to save big cats!

Discover natgeo's Instagram Photos by @renan_ozturk // “Can we eat like our ancestor’s did in today’s time?” - Native American artist and foodie Roxanne Swentzell at her home during the @gatherfilm shoots with the Pueblo New Mexico tribes.  Beside her emotive bronze & clay sculptures she has a complex food story that fits into our film on Native American food sovereignty. ~

At one point her whole family was suffering from health problems - high cholesterol, obesity, heart problems, autoimmune diseases and chronic disease. It’s not uncommon in a lot of Native communities which have had their land (which is their food) cut out and replaced by corn syrp, white bread and whatever you can get at the gas station... because that is all there was available in multiple communities we visited. ~

Roxanne is a success a story.  She began following the ancient food ways -  not eating processed white flour and sugar but rather self-grown beans, corn and squash. Quickly, her and her family’s health drastically improved.  While we were at her adobe house that she built herself at age 23 we got a tour of her converted seed bank of ancient grains, tasted her grasshopper flour and wandered amongst the goats and turkeys while we checked out the art inhabiting every nook and cranny of the compound. ~

Discover natgeo's Instagram Photo by @TimLaman.  A young, unflanged Tapanuli Orangutan male threatens another orangutan in the mountains of Sumatra.  I just posted a shot of the much bigger male he is threatening over @TimLaman so check it out.  Adult male orangutans are territorial and don’t tolerate each other.  This young male is no doubt feeling his hormones surging and felt the urge to threaten the big male, but the big male just ignored him, knowing the younger male would run from a fight.  When I made this image in 2014 on assignment for @NatGeo, I didn’t know this isolated population was going to be described as a new species of orangutan, Pongo tapanuliensis!  It is amazing that in 2017, we are still making new discoveries about the great apes, our closest relatives.  There is so much more to learn, but time is running out as they are critically endangered.  Check out the link in my profile @TimLaman to read the @NatGeo News story about the new orangutan species, and check out the conservation group @socp.official working with the Indonesian govt to save these apes.

Discover natgeo's Instagram Image by @joelsartore | Edging closer to extinction, this Yaqui catfish, Ictalurus pricei, recently passed away at the Arizona-Sonora @DesertMuseum. It was the only known captive specimen. Just four individuals remain in the wild in the United States.
The only native catfish known to the Pacific slope in North America, the Yaqui's demise has been due to hybridization, dewatering by industrialization and/or drought.
But there is hope. 
Biologists are hoping to develop a captive breeding program using fish collected from the small remaining populations in Mexico. But the simplest part of this will be collecting the fish from the wild. Eventually, a hatchery will be necessary that's dedicated to hold and produce the fish, and a recovery plan will need to be developed. To date, no funding has been obtained.

Discover natgeo's Instagram Photo by @ciriljazbec / Greenlandic dog is not a pet dog but a working dog that Inuit hunters and fishermen use for dog-sledding. They are the least know casualties of climate change. With the disappearance of sea ice, they have become a burden, which is why unfortunately some hunters are forced to shoot them. It is too expensive to sustain and feed them throughout the year when they can only use them for shorter and shorter periods of time. I took this portrait while crossing the frozen sea on my way to Siorapaluk, one of the northernmost settlement on the planet. Follow more from my Arctic journey @ciriljazbec

Every day Central American migrants risk everything to reach the United States, fleeing violence and life-threatening poverty. I don't know if Jorge, or the other children and families I met at migrant shelters in Mexico while working with @tooyoungtowed in collaboration with Humanity United, ever received humanitarian visas and made it to the United States. I do know that if the U.S. government sends them back, it is not just a deportation, but a death sentence. 1649693459756145353_787132

Discover natgeo's Instagram @FransLanting While tracking cheetahs in Kenya for @NatGeo, I got to know a coalition of three brothers known as Honey’s Boys who hunted in a portion of the Maasai Mara  visited by many tourists. These males grew up in public and have been photographed countless times. They acted like stars—and they were. When one of them bounded up the trunk of a magnificent fig tree to look out over the plains I maneuvered myself to silhouette the cheetah against the sky for a graphic juxtaposition of cat and tree. Even on the celebrated Serengeti Plains, cheetahs are rare. While there are several thousand lions, fewer than three hundred cheetahs manage to survive. Check the links below to learn more about the organizations that are in the frontline of cheetah conservation and how you can help. This image is featured in our new book “Into Africa," which has just been released. It is based on the NatGeo exhibition with the same name. Follow me @FransLanting for more images and stories of wild Africa and to learn more about the book.

Discover natgeo's Instagram Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - A mapping team carry out a 3D scan of a passage-way deep underground in Imawari Yueta (cave) on Auyán Tepui, in Venezuela. By using a high precision 3D laser scanner, following the expedition the team will generate a 3D visual 'fly through' of the cave to simulate the experience.
This photograph is from a portfolio I made from inside caves on top of extremely remote tepuis (aka table-top mountains) in Venezuela. The scientists from the Italian geographic exploration group known as ‘La Venta’ and the Venezuelan team ‘Theraposa’ were looking for unique forms of bacteria that could help clinical microbiologists in studies into bacterial resistance to antibiotics. It was a fascinating assignment to a very remote and rarely visited part of our world. The diverse environment on top of these tepuis is like no other anywhere on planet Earth, as each tepui is different and home to a unique world. @natgeocreative 1649502634459804029_787132

This is an adult male I photographed in Batang Toru in 2014 on assignment for @NatGeo, when I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit this remote site in Sumatra.  The orangutans living there, only about 800 or less, have now been shown to be genetically distinct from both the regular Sumatran Orangutans, and the Bornean Orangutans.  They are now scientifically recognized as a distinct species (Pongo tapanuliensis), and are only found in one small area of Sumatra in the country of Indonesia.

Discover natgeo's Instagram Photo by @williamalbertallard // Summer of 1993, a blur of  poppies fronting some olives trees in Provence. Just enough breeze to bend and smear the layers of color, scarlet, yellow, and green. This was not far from Aix-en-Provence where Paul Cezanne lived and worked the countryside near Mont Sainte-Victoire, one of his favorite motifs.
