Photo by @TimLaman | “It’s ok, buddy, we’re penguins. We can handle this blizzard.” Pretty hard not to anthropomorphize a scene like this. I’m sharing photo tips and many other shots from my recent Antarctica shoot @TimLaman so please check it out. These Adélie penguins were shot on my January trip with @NatGeoExpeditions to Antarctica. #snowstorm #penguin #antarctica #TL_wildlifephototips

Photo by @BrianSkerry | Three sperm whales socialize in the waters off of Dominica in the eastern Caribbean. The whale on the bottom is a calf is named Digit, and she became entangled in fishing gear in 2015. It was looking like a death sentence for the young whale, but surprisingly in 2018 Digit was completely free! These whales have been studied for 15 years by Shane Gero, founder of the the Dominica Sperm Whale Project. In a story on the @natgeo website @craigwelch writes about Shane’s work with these animals, their families, and this special story. This population of whales is on a six percent annual decline due to anthropogenic stresses, such as entanglement in fishing gear and ship strikes. If they die off, we would lose a whale culture that possesses unique knowledge about its home waters.

Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown | At the Rockefeller Museum in Jerusalem, I stood next to this marble foot from the Roman period, 2nd-3rd century C.E., unearthed in Ashkelon. The foot is thought to have been part of a statue approximately 5.40 meters high, with a sandal typical of those portrayed being worn by Roman emperors during this period.

Video by @amivitale | Reteti Elephant Sanctuary keeper Lekupania combs through the mane tufts of an orphaned adolescent Grevy's zebra at @r.e.s.c.u.e in northern Kenya. In addition to caring for and raising orphaned baby elephants, @r.e.s.c.u.e is home to orphan giraffe, zebra, kudu, gerunuk, warthogs, and waterbuck that one day will be released back into the wild to live as they were always meant to. Also known as the imperial zebra, the Grevy's is taller, has larger ears, and its stripes are narrower than other types of zebra. It is also an extremely threatened animal. There may be fewer than 2,500 Grevy's zebras in the wild.

Photo by @pedromcbride | A fishing boat is purposefully sunk off the coast of Vis, Croatia, to swell its wood and seal its joints. After a week below the surface, it is brought ashore by a community of fishermen and a celebration unfolds to toast their newly restored Adriatic vessel.

Photo by @ronan_donovan | The bond between mother and her offspring is arguably the strongest social bond that exists in the natural world. Whether it’s between humans or these guanacos from Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park, physical contact among social mammals is what solidifies their bond. It can be in the form of a nip from a disciplinarian or a reassuring nuzzle from mom. Either way, physicality plays a critical role in their survival. Species living in a social group affords individuals with a higher rate of survival compared to being on their own. For guanacos, the benefit of a group is that there are many eyes on the lookout for pumas. Want to see more images of guanacos and their young? Hop on over to @ronan_donovan and follow along for stories and images from the wild.

Photo by @PaulNicklen | Marching together along the South Georgia shoreline, king penguins head out to sea to find food for their hungry chicks. Just as human communities offer benefits to members, like support and social interaction, penguin colonies can be good for individual birds. There can be safety in numbers, along with shelter from harsh conditions, both of which can help the birds survive. #followmeat @PaulNicklen and explore my feed for more photos of penguins. #penguin #ocean #BornToIce #wildlife

Photo by @thomaspeschak | Getting images of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins Ponta do Ouro marine reserve off southern #mozambiquewas a bit tricky. To make this image, I had to swim into the surf zone and repeatedly free dive under breaking waves. Exact timing and a healthy dose of good fortune meant the difference between getting the shot or getting pounded by the surf. This was originally a color photograph, and only recently did I come to appreciate its qualities as a black and white image. For more photographs of surfing dolphins follow @thomaspeschak

Photo by @nicholesobecki | Nearly four years ago, I met this Eritrean family as they carried their belongings through Adi-Harush Camp, Ethiopia, in the midst of a light rain. They’d left behind one of the world’s fastest-emptying nations: a country of about 4.5 million, governed by a dictatorship, that has played an outsize role in the migration crisis. At the time, the cold war between Ethiopia and Eritrea seemed intractable, a tense stalemate that had endured since 2000. With the arrival of peace last year, I’ve been thinking a lot about this family, and the many others who fled their homes, and what this new opening means for them. #ethiopia #eritrea #migration #peace #nicholesobecki

This region of the country is primarily inhabited by Ismailis, a moderate sect of Islam, and maintains high literacy rates for girls, religious tolerance, and relative political stability.

Photo by Muhammed Muheisen @mmuheisen | Seven-year-old Zahra Mahmoud and elder sister Fatimah are Syrian refugees from Deir ez-Zor. I first met Zahra when she was four, in an informal tented settlement in Jordan where she and her parents took shelter. Since then I have visited her family to document their daily life and the challenges they face since fleeing the war in their country.
