Photo by David Chancellor @chancellordavid | Camouflage warrior training, northern Kenya - from 'with butterflies and warriors' - ranger recruits are selected from all tribes across northern Kenya thus allowing ranger teams to protect wildlife and people without fear of tribal conflict. The recruits are portrayed at the end of a days camouflage and ambush training. They are carrying sticks that represent the actual weapons that they will be issued with once their training is complete and they have attained Kenya Police Reservist status, then can then operate alongside other rangers protecting wildlife and people here in northern Kenya.
It is obvious that without the support and agreement of those who live alongside wildlife to safeguard a wide range of species, not just the iconic ones, we have no hope of preserving this region, let alone the rest of the planet. This is living 'with butterflies and warriors’...an ongoing project in the rangelands of northern Kenya - To see more of this project and other work, follow me here @chancellordavid @everydayextinction @thephotosociety @natgeo #withbutterfliesandwarriors #kenya #northernkenya #samburu #wildlife

Photo by @simoncroberts | Boys playing in the shadow of Celtic Football Club, Springfield Road, Glasgow from the series #merriealbion. Located in Glasgow's east end Celtic Park is sometimes referred to by commentators as Parkhead (or by fans as Paradise), after the district of the city the stadium is located. The stadium has been situated on its current site since 1892. Parkhead flourished with the discovery of coal in 1837 and grew into an important industrial centre for the city. Since the 1970s the area has had to battle against the decline of the coal and steel industry relying instead on retail jobs and the popularity of football. Home games at Celtic FC often host up to 55,000 fans.

Photo by @CarltonWard | Meet the Florida panther — the last subspecies or puma remaining in the eastern US and Florida's state animal that shows us what we need to do to keep our state wild. This frame was captured on Babcock Ranch using a custom made camera trap. I’ve been working in this area for two years for my #pathofthepanther project with @NatGeo @myfwc @fl_wildcorridor and recently @nature_org. A male panther like this one has a home range of 200 square miles — and area so large that outside of Big Cypress National Preserve multiple properties are usually required to support a single panther. That makes panthers excellent ambassadors for protecting the statewide network of public and private lands that makeup #FloridaWildlifeCorridor. And if we don’t protect the Corridor, panthers will not have access to enough of their historic habitat to recover to sustainable numbers. But by investing in conservation in the Everglades Headwaters and beyond, we have a chance to restore panthers to their former range throughout the eastern US for the benefit of people and wildlife. #panther #floridawild #keepflwild

Photo by @stevewinterphoto | Over the course of a century, tiger numbers have plummeted from about 100,000 to perhaps 3,800 today. They face a litany of threats, from poaching and the illegal wildlife trade to the pillage of their remaining habitat, conflict with people and disappearing prey. I hope these images inspire people to act. Together, we can insure the long-term survival of one of the planet’s most iconic animals— the largest and most endangered of the world’s big cats.
30 of the world’s best photographers speaking eloquently via their cameras in stunning pictures that bring global attention to the biggest cat of them all - The TIGER!!! The World’s largest photographic exhibition of Tiger images from the world’s leading photographers - “Eye of the Tiger" is at the Royal Albert Hall - and runs from Sept. 18th to October 14th
Please go see this incredible show of the best of the best - from Michael “NIck” Nichols, Mike Birkhead, Chris Brunskill, Aditya “Dicky” Singh, Andy Rouse, Theo Allofs, Steve Bloom,

Formed by an ancient landslide, the largest mass movement slide in Britain, the Old Man stands 50m (165 feet) from its base to its summit. To the north of the Old Man, lies the Quirang, a stunning area of fractured ground and part of the same land formation. Together these rugged features make up some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and are a huge pull for tourists - a key part of the economy on the Isle of Skye. The walk up to the Old Man takes only around 40 minutes and is well worth it, as it has to be seen to be believed.

Photo by @paleyphoto (Matthieu Paley) | Beast of nature: a Bactrian camel sits out a snow storm in Afghanistan’s Pamir mountains. Bactrian camels are native to the steppes of Central Asia where they have been used as pack animals along the Silk Road since ancient times. They have an incredible tolerance for cold, high altitude or drought - they can go without water for months at a time, and then drink up to 57 liters at once. Bactrian camels belong to a fairly small group of animals that regularly eat snow to provide their water needs. The latent heat of snow and ice is enormous compared with the heat capacity of water, demanding a large sacrifice in heat energy and forcing animals to eat only small amounts at a time. Up at 14.000 feet that day (4250 meters), I couldn’t feel my face anymore, but this guy was just chilling… For more interesting encounters, please visit @paleyphoto - on assignment for @natgeo #silkroad #centralasia #bactriancamel #camel #snowstorm #mountainstorm #highaltitudeanimal #beastofnature #pamirmountains

Photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto from the project FATHERS - Florence, Italy. Davide (42), Noah (8), Ian (2) -Davide is a musician and music therapist. He plays multiple instruments, but his favorite is the saxophone. He plays in a jazz group and works with people with many different types of disorders or traumas to cope with, from autistic children to groups of women who have undergone mastectomies. For each person, he designs a special treatment path and a unique musical approach. That’s one more reason why his house is full of a variety of musical instruments from all around the world. Naturally, they have also become his children's playthings. For the moment, Noah is exhibiting a distinct preference for the drums. David was born into an international family, and in his home the language is constantly switching between Italian, French, English and Hebrew /// FATHERS: I’m recently turned 40 and almost every friend around me has become a parent over the last few years. A couple of friends and I are the only ones in our group who still don’t have kids of our own. I naturally began to observe how the others were raising their children. I watch them playing together, hear the arguments and the kids’ complaints at mealtimes or at bedtime. I’ve often been the one in charge of the kids when those moments happen. Just maybe, all of these things are making me start to want to be a father. That is why I’ve decided to make the relationships between fathers and their children the focus of this photo project. Wherever I am in the world, when I meet a father I ask him to tell me about a special moment he has spent with his children and, when I can, I photograph them together /// Follow me for more stories @gabrielegalimbertiphoto #father #fathers #dad #dads #italy #firenze #florence #music #musictherapy

Photo by Ismail Ferdous @ismailferdous | This is the Bangladeshi-American rapper Anik Khan (@anikkhan_) at the Urban Desi conference in New York City. He also goes by Big Baba.

Khan emigrated to Astoria, Queens in New York when he was around 4, with his freedom fighter father seeking political asylum in America. Among South Asians, Bangladeshi immigrants are one of the newest and fastest growing immigrant groups in the United States, with nearly half of all Bangladeshi immigrants in this country. Residing in the New York metropolitan area. A major chunk is in the Queens borough. Queens artist Anik was inspired from the music he’d heard in his neighborhood and the spoken-word (kobita) his father would perform at family gatherings. Anik has become a vocal advocate of immigrant pride in his music. His lyrics are often about his dual identities as a Bangladeshi immigrant and a kid from Queens who often describes himself as “curry chicken meets collard greens”. He just released a new single, "Big Fax." The opening line of the song goes: "Damn… It Feels Good To Be An Immigrant." From belonging to a family seeking political asylum in America, to today becoming a face of the American dream, Anik Khan has come a long way. He thinks it's about time that we flipped the script on outdated immigrant stereotypes.

I did not know about Anik’s music before I moved to America. One of my friends from Boston brought his name up while I was researching my south Asian American project. In my first meeting with Anik I found him very amicable and his ability for spoken poetry stands out from a general conversation with him. We started speaking in Bengali right away. Often times it is a confusing to talk to a Bengali-American: Shall we start in Bengali or English? I think many of south Asians could relate to this confusion.

Photo by @beverlyjoubert | The family resemblance is strong. The Skimmer Pride in the Okavango has been thriving as the antelope populations continue to grow. Red lechwe numbers have increased tenfold in the decade since hunting stopped at Duba Plains and as a result the area is able to sustain more predators. This pride currently has six young cubs and when they're not clamoring for food, they're looking for attention and someone to play with. Half a dozen young cubs can be very hard work but the Skimmer male has consistently shown great patience with his young offspring - although they will quickly learn just how far they can push him! Judging by this photo, the cubs are rapidly learning not only discipline from their impressive father, but the proud stance and focused stare of an apex predator as well. #ThisIsMyTrophy #SkimmerPride #OkavangoLions #BigCats

It is for this moving look in the middle of this tornado of jaws, that this photo is perhaps my favorite among the 85000 images photographed in 4 years in Fakarava, and one of the 222 selected photos for the project #700sharksintothedark .

Photo by David Chancellor @chancellordavid | The Swartberg Mountain range, South Africa - The Swartberg Nature Reserve consists of 121,000 hectares of pristine ecosystem. This area was inhabited for centuries by the San people; rock paintings can be found in caves and shelters across the reserve. An area of climatic extremes, with very cold winters; there is often snow on the mountains and temperatures fall well below zero, with summers that can be uncomfortably hot, with temperatures reaching mid 40 degrees Celsius and higher.
This mountain range is part of the Cape Fold mountain system and the geological formations are chiefly of the Table Mountain group - The reserve’s vegetation is remarkably diverse, featuring renosterveld, mountain fynbos, Karoo-veld, spekboom-veld, and numerous geophytes species. Most plants flower in spring and some of the low lying areas are transformed into a wonderland as the first rains occur and the dormant plants display their true colours in vast abundance.
Mammals present here include klipspringer, grey rhebuck, kudu, baboon and dassie (rock hyrax). Leopard and caracal (lynx). More than one hundred and thirty bird species have been recorded here, notably black eagle, fish eagle, martial eagle, cape sugarbird and giant kingfisher - love this mountain range, it truly looks like its made from folded layers of marzipan 💚 follow me @chancellordavid to see more work and projects from here and elsewhere #swartbergmountains #southafrica #conserving #wildlife"

While hiking along the shores of Great Slave Lake in Canada’s Northwest Territories, I had that feeling. I sat down quietly and waited. Eventually, a gorgeous male white wolf came out of the forest and stared right through me. The position of his tail told me that he was relaxed and didn’t feel threatened by my presence. For me, this fleeting acceptance is the most precious gift I can hope for from a wild animal.

It is the only visible part of a mysterious organism that lives underground in the jungles of Borneo.

This alien plant looks like something out of Avatar. With this image I wanted to create a view from within the flower, the way a fly might see it when it enters to pollinate the blossom.

Photo by @martinschoeller | Religion: Bruderhof. Michelle Hinkey: ""I grew up in a Christian home with my parents and five siblings. I attended schools run by the Bruderhof, which is a Christian communal movement. But believing in and following Christ is not something anyone else can do for me. I had to discover my own beliefs and faith. Unlike most Christian denominations, the Bruderhof doesn’t have consecrated church buildings. When the weather is nice, we often worship outdoors. In our community in Harlem, we have a rooftop deck, where we hold many of our worship meetings. As it says in Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Jesus told his disciples that there are two great commandments. First: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. And secondly: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” My first task is to love and serve God, but my love to him is expressed through the love I show my neighbors. The best way for me to love God and my neighbors is by living in a Bruderhof community. For my community, the Sermon on the Mount is particularly important. In it, Jesus teaches us how to live a life of love, humility, service, purity, and forgiveness. Jesus also talks a lot about the Kingdom of God. Some people make this out just to be what’s beyond the grave. It’s not! It’s a blueprint, a model for how we ought to live. It is a kingdom of justice, of peace, of love. We can’t force it into being, but we can try our best to live it out in our own lives.
I think every day I lose my faith and find it again. Sometimes it is hard to believe in a good God when I see all the suffering and problems in the world today, or even if I’m just having a bad day. But then I look around and see God’s work and beautiful creation in so many amazing and interconnected ways, people, friends, children, nature, trees, microorganisms. So I have to believe even if I don’t understand it all!"

She is the most influential member of the zoo’s zebra herd, with a dynamic personality and playful nature.

Have you ever wondered why zebras have stripes? There are five main hypotheses for what stripes do for this species. They are thought to: repel insects, provide camouflage through optical illusion, confuse predators, reduce body temperature, and help the animals recognize each other. Among the many theories, recent research found that zebras and certain blood-sucking insects inhabit the same places. Understanding how the stripe pattern impacts bug bites on this species may help researchers protect humans from disease-carrying insects! This species can digest taller, tougher grasses that other grazing animals have difficulty eating. As they migrate, they often move into new areas first. As they eat the high grasses, spurring more nutritious green plants to appear, allowing wildebeest and gazelles to roam in and eat. Some say zebras are white because the stripes end at their white belly. Others say black because when you shave the hair, the skin is mostly black. What do you think?

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | 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.

Photo by @florianschulzvisuals | A bull moose moves across the fall colored tundra on a clear day in Denali National Park in Alaska. In the background towers Denali. In my eyes this is one of the most stunning landscapes on the continent because Denali, isolated from other high mountains, rises taller than any other peak in North America, reaching 20,310 ft (6190 m) in its snow and ice-covered glory. Formerly known as “Mount McKinley” it was finally renamed Denali, the way the local Koyukon people have called it in their native language for centuries.
It took me many visits to the park until I was finally able to capture this scenery, making an animal part of the image. A landscape becomes more alive this way. Please follow me @florianschulzvisuals to see more photographs from Alaska and other wild corners of our planet.

Photos by @vincentjmusi | Three Dog Nightmare, 2018. My father always told me that bad things came in threes, yet there are many examples of good if not great “threes” in history – your Three Stooges, your Three Amigos, the Tenors, Musketeers, Bears, Blind Mice and even the Three Little Pigs.
All had nothing on Dove, Bullet, and Bliss: three lovely and talented Boykin Spaniels.
Two’s company and three’s a picture I guess. If you follow my work closely enough, I try never to photograph more than one of anything in a picture; it’s safer that way for all those involved.

Yet, it was my brilliant idea to follow a successful session of individual portraits with this trio. My wife Callie and the patient and supportive owner of these pups seemed to think it was a good idea at the time as well.

I am often asked how we get the dogs to remain calm for these photographs. I am often vague and secretive in my responses because much of what I can share is restricted by non-disclosure agreements and other legal nonsense – Essentially it’s proprietary or everyone would be in the lucrative business of photographing dogs.

That said, in the spirit of the #yearofthedogs, I have prepared a few DIY tips for trying this at home.

First, begin with a strong elevator pitch. You must sell the dogs on this idea and never show weakness or self-doubt. Convince them that this will be “great.” Be flexible and humble. This is really not a good time to cry or spout pity about how you used to travel the world as a National Geographic photographer. Also shouting “I DON”T NEED THIS” does not work as a motivational tool at the canine or husband/wife level.

Know when you’re beat. When the dogs and your own wife turn on you, it’s time to put the camera down.

When it does work, take all the credit and write a pithy anecdotal @Instagram post about how you knew it would work the whole time.

Photo @Hammond_Robin for @WhereLoveIsIllegal | “We thought love never existed in our world,” says Ben. “Little did we know love is everywhere - but the challenge is bitter.” Ben (above) and John (below), a gay couple from Ghana, have been together for three years. The love they share is a secret. They know that to be openly gay in Ghana would provoke the glare of disapproval, or worse - homophobia is a violent kind of bigotry: “I was attacked by gang guys twice,” says Ben. “The first I was beaten, second, my partner and I was attacked by a gun. His hand was shot and had to go under a surgery - all in the name of stigma and discrimination in Ghana. We’re living in a world of fear.” Where Love is Illegal traveled to Kenya, Mozambique and Ghana with the support of Elton John AIDS Foundation (@ejaf) to continue our work sharing LGBTQI+ stories of survival and to raise awareness of the impacts of stigma.

The blood on their fur is from a recently devoured seal, which has likely provided the energy for this kind of play. From observing the wider family group, we’re pretty sure these two are from the same family of three cubs (the third is just out of frame). It’s rare to see three cubs at any time so it was great to see these siblings make it through to their second year, well fed and playing happily. A rare sighting indeed! The video was shot just a few weeks ago at the ice edge above Svalbard, from a small ship held in the ice nearby. Sea ice across the Arctic Ocean is experiencing a record low extent, in the Barents region where this video was captured, there is now a huge distance between the mainland and the summer sea ice. These cubs are fortunate because their mother has done an amazing job in keeping them well fed; she found the ice quickly and has used it to hunt productively. Whether future generations of polar bears will adapt to the effects of climate change on sea ice is a big area of study right now. Most biologists I speak to venture that it’s simply not possible for polar bears to adapt to an eventual loss of their habitat. It’s not a good time for any of the species that are reliant on the sea ice ecosystem.

Photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto | Elias, 6 - Aigle, Switzerland - Take a moment and think back to your childhood. The era in your life when the only thing you knew about a bill was that it was a bird’s equivalent of lips and your day job was to construct fantastical worlds with your favorite toys. In my series ‘Toy Stories’, I explore the connection between children and their toys and I try to give an insight into their tiny worlds and takes you on a trip down memory lane. ‘Toy Stories’ is the result of an 24 month round the world trip where I visited a variety of countries and cultures and took photographs of children and their toys. I would often take part in a child’s games prior to arranging the toys for the photograph.

Despite some differences, I found similarities between children living worlds apart. Even in different countries, some children’s toys played the same function, or example protecting them from dangers and things they feared in the night. - Toys haven’t changed all that much since I was a kid. I’d often find the kind of toys I used to have, it was nice to go back to my childhood somehow. // Follow me @gabrielegalimbertiphoto for more photos and stories #toys #play #kids #child #children #toy #kid

This species of bird is seasonally monogamous and their breeding season can last almost two years from the start until the end of caring for the chicks. The Phoenix Islands are owned by the country of Kiribati and were protected as a massive marine protected area several years ago. Since the marine ecosystems are healthy, sea birds can forage close to the islands rather than having to journey far for food for themselves and their chicks. Fledging occurs after four to six months and is typically determined by food abundance.

And then you come across a seabird colony, a group of walruses resting on a beach, a polar bear feeding on a seal carcass on a floating piece of ice. Life that is born out of, and maintained by the invisible richness of the seas.
Walruses are not particularly pretty animals from a distance, but on closer inspection, their face is enchanting. And they don't mind you coming close if you give them enough time to learn that your presence is not a threat. What an experience it was to earn their trust for a few minutes! :-)
