A few months ago I joined Border Angels in one of their monthly desert water drops. It was just one Saturday (so far) of my life and the couple miles we hiked in the desert was nothing compared to what people have to endure on their journey crossing the border. As a daughter of two immigrants, both of whom lived through their own traumatic journeys in crossing, this experience really hit home. Seeing empty water gallons, open and oxidized empty cans of food, old tattered clothes and blankets made it all the more real and that much more heartbreaking. I often think about that day and I pray that those crossing the desert are able to make it safely and find a little piece of hope with those water jugs. .. Since the 1990s the US government has employed numerous inhumane border enforcement tactics, one of which is Prevention through Deterrence. This tactic essentially relies on hostile geographic conditions, rattlesnakes, and ultimately, the risk of dehydration and death to deter migrants. More than 11,000 sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives have all died in the desert. Their main cause of death? Dehydration. So today on World Water day, I ask you to be conscious of the inhumanity happening and be active in trying to prevent it. No human should have to suffer and die from dehydration. Water is a basic human right, no matter what side of the border you find yourself on. .. Please look into @borderangelsofficial, consider volunteering with any of their great causes, donate to them if you are able to, or simply just inform yourself and spread the word on the work they do. Feel free to let me know of any other orgs you can think of that do work with the migrant community. And as always #chingatumuro !!! .. #worldwaterday #aguaesvida

Photo by Amivitale With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. Yesterday, Zachariah Mutai comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from Safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at Ol Pejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF. I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dvur Kralov in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind.

Unos taquitos de pescado, una paella, un cevichito, un papillote y las ostras en todas sus presentaciones 🤤, no pueden faltar entre mis platos favoritos del mundo mundial.
Lo que más me gusta es que cada cultura tiene su forma de convertir la comida de mar en toda una experiencia gastronómica 🌎.
Porque dependiendo de las temperaturas y cómo es el mar de ese país podremos encontrar una variedad increíble de pescados y mariscos. Esto nos hará entender qué elegir y cuándo elegirlo… ¿difícil? No se preocupen, ese trabajo ya lo hice yo y siempre busco formas de compartirlo de una manera fácil con ustedes 😉.
¡El mundo de la cocina es mágico, y siempre estaré agradecido de poder vivirlo al máximo!

Ceviche, tacos, paella, oyster, however you put them in front of me I would make them disappear obviously by eating them 🤤. Seafood has to be one of my favorite things in the world what do I like the most about it, is that each culture has its own way of interpreting seafood in a whole different way 🌎. All due to their geographic location, the temperature on the water and the different species available locally. This is the key for you to understand what to choose and help. This might sounds hard but don't worry I did the hard work for you, and I will always be searching for new ways to share all the tips with you guys 😉. The cooking world is pure magic and I'm grateful to be a part of it!

Tomorrow is world #worldtigerday and it marks a celebration of the worlds largest and favorite big cat. Tigers are an endangered species that need our help in a big way! There may be fewer than 2500 individuals left in the wild and scientists believe breeding populations occur in only eight countries and 40 population strongholds across Asia! My tiger work for @natgeo magazine over the past 20 years has taken me to document tigers in places as wild as Kaziranga National Park in India and northern Sumatra in Indonesia and I see the same threats facing this iconic species: poaching, deforestation and an increasing body part trade in China! When the demand for wild and captive tiger parts stops so too will the poaching of this beautiful cat! #wildaid “when the buying stops the killing can too"
We need to unite in saving this iconic big cat that is an ambassador of wild places and human cultures! Tigers are also the most important apex predators in forests across Eurasia and when you lose them from a forest, deer and pig numbers can increase and the forest loses an important ecosystem engineer!
Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest.Forest, grasslands and mountains 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.

Visit National Geographic's big cats initiative to find out how to save iconic species like this tiger and other big cats today!

I’m still thinking about big cats after world wildlife day. Here’s another jaguar, this time a big male taking a drink at sunset. During the dry season in Brazil's Pantanal, the jaguars stick close to the rivers. Not only do these rivers provide drinking water, they also concentrate the jaguar's primary prey- capybara and caiman. As a result, the best way to observe them is by boat. This gives an added benefit for filming as you can use the boat as a giant camera slider to create movement in the shot. Using a gyrostabilised rig and an electric motor, my boatman and I were able to smoothly (and almost silently) glide past giving the shot this rotation. Shot for a @natgeowild jaguar show.

The Indian state of Kerala, nicknamed “God’s Own Country,” named by National Geographic as one of the “World’s Top Ten Paradises,” and known for its religious diversity, is currently in a crisis. More than 320 people have died since the monsoon, and more than 300,000 are in shelter homes while thousands more are waiting to be rescued. The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi flew over the state of Kerala on Saturday and pledged an additional £56m in financial assistance and compensation for the families of the dead. Even though the Indian government has mounted more than 82,000 rescue operations, authorities are calling for more food, water and medicines to supply more than 1,500 relief camps that have sprung up around the state. Videos and reports being released of those in danger show family members stuck in their homes with neck-deep of water while others are waiting to be rescued on the roofs of their homes. So, we urge you all to make a small donation during this time of crisis — simply click on the link above and scroll down to choose a donation option that fits you best, and please share this message on your newsfeed. // 🎨 @lakshsarkar 🙏🏽💙 🇮🇳 #doforkerala

Oranges and Lemons.
Children's rhymes are great repositories of the collective folk imagination or of legends - that are passed down orally and often, ritualisticaly in the form of a playground game and within this particular series of rhyming couplets, I have discovered secrets - masking arcane esoteric knowledge that had been hidden in the very geographic landscape of London and specifically within the City churches of Sir Christopher Wren - the great architect.
You see, if you were to consider his tomb in the crypt of St Paul's cathedral, it is most curious and remember, he was an astronomer, rather than an architect.
A simple epitaph states: 'Si monumentum requiris circumspice' - ('If you require a monument, look around you').
Geographical energy patterns, which often relate to a grid network and marked out at key nodal points by the invariable astronomically aligned presence of ancient sites and associated events or legends generated are themselves vortices.
I have been since January, aspiring to unravel the great mystery and the spuritual significance of this superficially, simplistic playground game.
The illustration I created above is based on a relatively contemporary stained glass window in St. Mary-le-Bow - Cheapside and this beautiful apparition of The Sacred Feminine is gently cradling her church; surrounded by all the saints and angels - those who are the protectorates and gate keepers of a sacred city and one envisioned by the visionary poet, artist and mystic: William Blake.
It was hiding in plain sight all along.
The journey - the fool's journey and in one whereby you can hop-scotch back and forwards through time and certainly, between world's, should you learn how. (Hop-scotch is based on a theorem and number square, sigilistic in nature).
For before us, before human habitation, before Order, there was that land and that grey leaden ribbon of water.
The chaos. .
"A crowd flowed over London bridge.
So many, I had not thought death had undone so many".
From The Wasteland by T. S. Eliot. 1922.

🇨🇳INFORMATION🇨🇳
Guilin, capital of Guangxi Autonomous Zhuang Ethnic Region (equal as a province), has been worldfamous by Li River and Karst Landscape.
.
South of China is a typical region of karst topography, where Guilin and Yangshuo’s hills and caves, Yunnan’s Stone Forest, and Guizhou’s Xiaoqikong are the best examples.
.
💥But what is karst?
It is a landscape formed by the dissolution of soluble bedrocks (mainly carbonate rocks such as limestone, dolomite and gypsum), featuring sinkholes, caves and underground streams.
.
Karst topography is relatively fragile and unstable in geographic terms, yet it creates fabulous and unique landscapes around the world.
.
💥Why Guilin/Yangshuo has fantastic karst landscape?
It is estimated that some hundred million years ago, the area where Guilin is located was a gulf. In the long years, the seabed was covered with thick calcareous sediments, which were slowly dissolving and shaped by the salty sea water at the same time.
.
Thus the original appearance of Guilin’s hills and caves had been formed. Later came the movements of the earth crust, and the seabed rose, cracked and gradually formed the landscape of Guilin.
.
After millions of years, with erosions of the wind, rain and rivers, the hills and caves developed into what we can see today, fantastic and unbelievable.

Plant scientist Henk Kalkman checks tomatoes at a facility that tests combinations of light intensity, spectrum, and exposures at the Delphy Improvement Centre in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands. October 17, 2016

The planet must produce more food in the next four decades than all farmers in history have harvested over the past 8,000 years. Small and densely populated, the Netherlands lacks conventional sources for large-scale agriculture but, mainly through innovative agricultural practice, has become the globe’s second largest exporter of food as measured by value. It is beaten only by the USA, which has 270 times its landmass.

Since 2000, Dutch farmers have dramatically decreased dependency on water for key crops, as well as substantially cutting the use of chemical pesticides and antibiotics. Much of the research behind this takes place at Wageningen University and Research (WUR), widely regarded as the world’s top agricultural research institution. WUR is the nodal point of "Food Valley," an expansive cluster of agricultural technology start-ups and experimental farms that point to possible solutions to the globe’s hunger crisis.

In 2016 I joined @drsteveboyes and director @neilgelinas on expedition in Botswana. We paddled for over 6 hours daily, got charged by hippos and had to pitch my own tent every night among lion, water buffalo and elephants. Needless to say I fell in love with the paradise the Okavango Delta is and my new family of friends and was so honored when they asked me to associate produce this film along with National Geographic.
The Okavango wilderness project tirelessly works towards preserving the entire Okavango water basin, home to half of the elephants remaining on Earth and plans to create one of the largest trans-boundary protected area on our planet.

I rang in the New Year dancing under the stars with hundreds of children in India. It sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?
That's how all of 2018 felt. The greatest thing I ever could have done this time last year was decided to spend 2018 "Expecting Big Things from God". I asked and prayed for BIG DREAMS to come to life before me and my God honored just that. Here are some highlights from 2018 that I'd love to share with you: •Finally jumped in the water. Wholeheartedly pursued and recieved my dream job - doing photography and storytelling full-time stateside and for nonprofits around the world. -•Visited the #1 Humanitarian country on my list -INDIA (3 times in one year). Slept on a rooftop under the most beautiful stars I’ve ever seen. Learned the names of more children than I can count. Played with, danced with, and loved hundreds of children. •Witnessed THOUSANDS of donations pour in to supply 307 kiddos in India with shoes, toothbrushes and toothpaste, textbooks, Christmas Cards, blankets, and cake. •Began sponsoring 3 children who have captivated my heart and attention - Dhruvi, Prem, and Vipul. Witnessed countless other children get sponsored through their stories being shared with the rest of the world. Traveled to the village of the children I sponsor, ate meals with their families, met their neighbors - learned what the life they live truly looks like. Found a peace that I never knew existed. This Christmas season I realized that India is the greatest gift God has given me. •Had coffee and got to pick the brain of National Geographic Photographer @gregdavisphotography. Thank you for welcoming me into your journey with vulnerability and honesty. •Visited the #1 Adventure country on my list - IRELAND. Learned what it feels like to breath again while taking in the beauty of the entire country side for 10 days. Experienced my first ever hot shower in a foreign country. Truly enjoyed my trip but was reminded that I'd much rather be living and sleeping on dirt floors in third world countries.⤵

☀️Zarah's Top Seven Things To Do in Saint Thomas


☀️1. Sunbathe at Magen's Bay. It is labeled one of the most beautiful beaches in the world by National Geographic. •

☀️2. Go to Drake's Seat or Mountaintop for breathtaking views of Saint Thomas and the British Virgin Islands. •

☀️3. Eat local food. My favorite place right now is Sabroso.


☀️4.Snorkel at Coki Point. The fish swim around you even in shallow waters. This beach plays local music... So if you aren't into snorkeling grab an Umbrella drink and relax.


☀️5. Get a coconut. Drink the water. Repeat daily. •

☀️6. Go to Saint John for a day. A ferry ride is less than $20 round-trip.


☀️7. Carnival! - It's an event I feel everyone should experience at least once. Saint Thomas Carnival is always the last week of April and Saint John's is always the week of fourth of July. •

☀️☀️TRUTH BEHIND THE PIC: THE COCONUT HAD BEEN EMPTY FOR 20 MINS BEFORE I TOOK THE PICTURE. I SAVED IT FOR THIS SHOT AND FOR THE COCONUT MEAT (WHICH I NEVER GOT 😭) #iphonephotography

National Geographic Live presents Chasing Rivers!

Description:

Acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride (Chasing Water) offers unforgettable journeys down two of the world’s great rivers. The Colorado flows through majestic landscapes but no longer reaches the sea. And the Ganges, India’s sacred waterway, is revered as a god but polluted by the people who worship it.

Pete McBride is living proof that in photography, passion, hard work, and guts matter more than the cost of your gear or where you went to school. A child of the Colorado, McBride grew up on a cattle ranch along the river. Now he’s an acclaimed photographer and filmmaker with over 15 years of work for National Geographic and an award-winning film, Chasing Water, to his credit. Along the way, he’s taken pictures from such unusual vantage points as the cockpit of a WWI biplane and the underside of an iceberg.

The stories he tells are important. So important that National Geographic has named McBride a “freshwater hero” for his work documenting the world’s most beloved rivers. While his perspective on freshwater draws from work in over 70 countries, his most recent big projects have been “source to sea” journeys along two major rivers: the Colorado and the Ganges. For his journey down the “American Nile,” McBride paddled the river and also took to the skies with his father, an accomplished pilot, to make images and video of the Colorado’s spectacular landscapes. Following the Ganges, India’s sacred waterway, he traveled by any means necessary, including rickshaw, helicopter, and elephant.

Dead Sea Ecology
The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, the Hoopoe Foundation and the international Artists For Nature Foundation together with the Amman Center for Peace and Development and the Dead Sea Research Institute undertook a bold arts project to raise global awareness to the ecological plight of the Dead Sea within a fractious geopolitical situation. I was one of the invited artists who spent a couple of weeks travelling and working in Jordan and Israel, and the following year building up a body of work in response to the issues.

The Dead Sea is one of the most intriguing geographic formations in the world, supporting unique ecosystems and harboring historic and cultural treasures. The long-term decline of the water level, through watershed, industrial exploitation and resources for tourism, is creating an ecological imbalance on both land and sea that will eventually destroy this unique and precious ecosystem. The culture of environmental artists, conservationists and resident youths from all shores provides a unique, non-political platform for people of this war-torn region to connect to their natural environment and to one another. #featured #humansnothotels #community #annakirksmith

Yesterday we swam 1/2 mile through the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM), to discover ancient skeletons from people that were sacrificed to appease the Mayan gods of the underworld and bring good weather for crops. No cameras are allowed on this tour, so this is our only photo, but I will say it was one of the most adventurous things I have ever done in my life. Scaling rocks within a pitch black cave, mostly swimming or walking through chest high water clinging onto the wall, and squeezing through areas that can only fit your neck (I could literally feel rock on each side of it) to get to clearings only to climb rocks and then a ladder to reach the furtherest Mayan chamber, where the “Crystal Maiden” lies, her skeletal remains untouched since her violent sacrifice over 1,000 years ago. Relics and pottery from this time period all sits where it was left, marked with pink plastic pieces of tape inches from your feet. You can only access this cave through a tour (you wouldn’t want to go it alone), and helmets and life jackets are a necessity. Not for the faint of heart, I highly recommend doing this, as it is named National Geographic’s #1 Sacred Place in the World. It was only discovered in 1989, and it is amazing knowing there is so much more left to explore and uncover in the jungle of this beautiful country.

Another image from my trip to Iran a few years back for National Geographic…
Constructed between 1599 and 1602 The Allahverdi Khan Bridge (Persian: پل الله‌وردی‌خان‎), popularly known as Si-o-se-pol (Persian: سی‌وسه‌پل‎, literally, ‘bridge of thirty-three [spans]’) is one of 11 bridges in Isfahan, Iran. It is the longest bridge on the Zayanderud, with a total length of almost 300m (977ft), and is one of the most famous examples of Safavid bridge design. Isfahan was once one of the largest cities in the world, flourishing from 1050 to 1722, particularly in the 16th & 17th centuries during the Safavid dynasty, when it became the capital of Persia for the second time in its history. Even today, the city retains much of its past glory. It is famous for its Persian–Islamic architecture, with many beautiful palaces, boulevards, mosques, minarets and bridges. This led to the Persian proverb “Esfahān nesf-e- jahān ast” (Isfahan is half of the world).

The Zayandeh River used to have significant flow throughout the year, unlike many of Iran’s rivers which are seasonal, but today runs dry due to water extraction before reaching Isfahan. In the early 2010s, the lower reaches of the river dried out completely after successive dry-outs.

Like so many others, I’ve watched what has unfolded in the US with a sense of grief, impotence and rage. Separating babies, toddlers, and children from their primary care-givers and leaving them in detention centres is a barbaric, indefensible practise. This is not a political issue, it’s a human one.
If you are looking for ways to support these vulnerable families, but are not a US resident or citizen, you could write to your country’s own political leaders and ambassadors to the US, asking them to condemn actions that have no place in a civilised, democratic society, whatever the party that created them. You could donate to legal advocacy groups on the ground such as Raices Texas, Las Americas Immigrant Advisory Service or ACLU.
We are born in a geographic lottery. We aren’t born to democracy, education, clean water and safety because of some preferential birthright; it’s luck of the draw.
And if we were born on the other side; I imagine that like so many refugees and asylum seekers, we too would cross oceans, borders and take risks in the quest for a better, safer life for our families.
The late, great, AA Gill said: “….the reason we can talk about “them” as a problem, a plague on our borders, is because we don’t see them. If any of these refugees knocked on any of our front doors and asked for help, we would give it. We would insist they be protected and offered a chance to be doctors and civil engineers, nurses and journalists. We would do it because we are…good and kind. It is only by not looking, by turning our backs, that we can sail away and think this is sad, but it is not our sadness.” Keep looking.

July 29th is world #worldtigerday and it marks a celebration of the worlds largest and favorite big cat. Tigers are an endangered species that need our help in a big way! There may be fewer than 2500 individuals left in the wild and scientists believe breeding populations occur in only eight countries and 40 population strongholds across Asia! My tiger work for @natgeo magazine over the past 20 years has taken me to document tigers in places as wild as Kaziranga National Park in India and northern Sumatra in Indonesia and I see the same threats facing this iconic species: poaching, deforestation and an increasing body part trade in China! When the demand for wild and captive tiger parts stops so too will the poaching of this beautiful cat! #wildaid “when the buying stops the killing can too"
We need to unite in saving this iconic big cat that is an ambassador of wild places and human cultures! Tigers are also the most important apex predators in forests across Eurasia and when you lose them from a forest, deer and pig numbers can increase and the forest loses an important ecosystem engineer!
Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest.Forest, grasslands and mountains 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.

Visit National Geographic's big cats initiative to find out how to save iconic species like this tiger and other big cats today!

President Kennedy’s inaugural challenge, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” summed up his own life and career, and rings as true today as it did forty years ago. To me, his commanding legacy lives in the thousands of Americans he inspired to get involved in their communities, schools, neighborhoods, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Peace Corps. Our country was transformed by the energy and dedication of a generation. Now it is up to us to redefine that commitment for our own time.

John F. Kennedy began his public service career as a PT-boat commander in the South Pacific in World War II. While on patrol on the night of August 2, 1943, the PT-109 was rammed by a Japanese destroyer, the Amagiri, and exploded into flames, throwing crew members into the burning water. Two were killed and one was burned so badly he couldn’t swim. Clutching a strap of the injured man’s life jacket in his teeth, Lieutenant Kennedy towed the wounded sailor to the nearest island, three miles away. For the next six days, with little food or water, the men hid, fearing they would be captured by the Japanese. Each evening Kennedy swam through the shark-infested waters to other islands seeking help, until he was spotted by two Solomon Islanders, Eroni Kumana and Biuku Gasa. They picked a coconut, onto which Kennedy carved a message, which they took to the hideout of a nearby Australian coast watcher who arranged rescue. In the summer of 2002 a National Geographic Society expedition found that the legend of John F. Kennedy’s courage lives on in the faraway Solomon Islands. Using remote-controlled vehicles with underwater cameras, explorer Robert Ballard and his team discovered the sunken PT-109. Expedition members met Eroni Kumana, the man whose simple canoe saved my father’s life and changed the course of history, and his son, John F. Kennedy Kumana.》

This was one of the most life-changing assignments I have been on for National Geographic. I teamed up with @barefoot_kuata and one of the worlds premiere shark photographers @thomasvignaudphotography (who’s shark shots appear here) to document bull sharks off the Yasawa Islands. Bull sharks can thrive in both salt and fresh water, but they typically leave the brackish water they’re born in to hunt and look for a mate in the sea. We found big and beautiful females, some over 8ft which you can see in this video. Bull sharks get their name because of their broad and stocky build which definitely grabs your attention underwater. I believe interactions like this are important because they challenge what we think we know about the natural world. I’ll admit I was scared to jump in the water but when I did, that fear gave way to admiration and excitement. Sharks are incredibly important animals because they keep the oceans balanced. Over 4 billion people a day depend on the oceans for their food source. So you could say, WE depend on sharks. Follow @filipe_deandrade for more wildlife adventures.

Thank You @NatGeo Magazine & National Geographic Society for bringing this powerful & necessary cover image to the world, and highlighting the plastic plight of our planet. A recent report launched last year at the World Economic Forum found the equivalent of a garbage truck worth of plastic bottles was being dumped into the ocean every minute. The ocean is expected to contain one tonne of plastic for every three tonnes of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish. About 150 million tons of plastic are already floating in our oceans with an additional eight million tons entering the water each year. If it's not bottles, it's plastics bags (even found in the deepest depths of our Ocean in the Mariana Trench) and other plastic-based packaging that can find its way into our waterways and harm wildlife. Some experts have warned that the plastic crisis is as bad as climate change. The presence of plastic in the ocean is one of the greatest threats to the conservation of wildlife throughout the world, as many animals are trapped in the trash or ingest large quantities of plastics that end up causing their death, and ultimately plastics are causing the death of humans. Please rethink & try hard to minimize your use of unnecessary plastics & do your part to #HelpSaveOurOceans & #SaveOurPlanet #NationalGeographic #abc4explore

Video: @tbfrost | Please see link in my profile to read the entire Australia crocodile conservation story on the National Geographic Magazine website.
I've shared this video before, and while many of you have seen it many of you have not - and nonetheless , it is worth re posting to remind the world that crocodiles are - I think anyways - the best designed animal on the planet. Their jaws slam shut with incredible power, anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 pounds per square inch, perfect for grabbing prey and holding on and crushing bone. Across their legs and backside they have both osteoderms and scutes. The osteoderms are a bone filled scale that forms an almost impenetrable armor. The scutes, also formed with bone, help protect the crocodile but, as one of my instagram followers reminded me, serve another purpose: their design and formation on the back of the crocodile create cross currents that cancel each other out which is why when they swim it barely disturbs the surface of the water. And then we have their tails, pure muscle so strong it can propel a crocodile completely out of the water! like this one on the Adelaide river in the Northern Territory of Australia.
There is so much more to share about crocodiles and why they are perfectly designed for what they do: their eyes, even their stomach acid! To learn more read the article and follow me @tbfrost @getinsta.official #liking #instafollow #art #webstagram #getinsta #peoplescreatives #topvsco #instagood

Snow Leopard in a snowstorm!

Snow leopards are the ghosts of the high mountain areas of central Asia in which they live.
The areas in which SL’s live are vitally important as they provide water for 100’s of millions of people.
But the glaciers that provide the water are rapidly disappearing, which begs the question - what will the future bring for people and animals?

Local people need to benefit from living with predators - snow leopards are persecuted by revenge killings - when they kill someone’s livestock a herder will then kill them. There are great community conservation projects where local herders can protect their flocks, making more money and saving snow leopards at the same time! Turning and economic negative into an economic positive - and saving snow leopards at the same time!

Please visit National Geographic’s Big Cat Initiative to find out ways to become involved - to save big cats!
Check out - Panthera, Snow Leopard Trust, WCS, UNDP, WildAid - Environmental Investigation Agency - Wildlife Protection Society of India,
