List natgeo's Instagram Clevedon Pier, Somerset, UK by @simoncroberts. This photograph is from my series #Pierdom where I documented all 56 remaining Pleasure Piers around the coast of Britain. These eccentric Victorian structures are an integral part of the British coastal experience, although many have been lost due to storm damage, fire and lack of funding.

If no one else receives the blessing needed to safely harvest honey from these perilous cliffs, a generations-old tradition may fade away. Looking forward to screening #thelasthoneyhunter for the first time at @mountainfilm in Telluride this weekend. Incredibly grateful to my friends @jetbutterflies and @renan_ozturk for trusting me with this cultural version of the film and inviting me on this journey.

List natgeo's Instagram Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Lanzarote is the easternmost island of the Spanish Canary Islands. It’s volcanic origin was born through fiery eruptions that saw its greatest recorded activity between 1730 and 1736. A couple of months ago, I paid the island a visit to document several of the many lava tubes and volcanic formations as part of a wider story. Pictured here, at 609m (1998ft) above sea level is the crater rim of an extinct volcano known as Monte Corona. Around 4000 years ago, it’s eruption covered most of the northeast part of the island with lava flows forming several of the great lava tubes we explored and documented during our visit to Lanzarote. 1520512563350920503_787132

List natgeo's Instagram Photo by @joelsartore. Happy #pollinatormonday! Pictured here is a lesser short-nosed fruit bat from the @lubeebatconservancy in Gainesville, Florida. This bat feeds on the nectar of fruit flowers. While gathering the nectar with its long tongue, pollen becomes stuck to its fur, and is carried to the anthers (the part of the plant where pollen is made) of the next flower on the menu, allowing the fruit to reproduce. More than 300 species of fruit rely on bats for pollination, including bananas, mango, guava, and cocoa. The economies of many countries are dependent on the exports of these fruits, and would cease to flourish without these graceful pollinators. To see another image of this bat check out @joelsartore.

List natgeo's Instagram Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // On #assignment for @natgeopristineseas and @natgeo. This project took our team to the northernmost human settlement in Greenland, the village of Qaanaak. The purpose of the expedition was to document the places in the Arctic where ice will disappear last, like the Thule region of Greenland, where I photographed this husky. In 20 years or less, much of the Arctic will be completely devoid of ice and the vast sea ice highways that the Inuit use to travel with their dogs will be gone forever. When that day comes, the last hunters of the north will no longer be able to access the edge of the sea, where today, with the help of their huskies, they are still able to hunt for wild food.

Critically endangered due to loss of habitat and deliberate poisoning, this amazing bird can commute up to 150 km a day from its nesting sites to find food here in the Serengeti.  This vulture is considered to be the highest-flying bird with confirmed evidence of flight at 11,300 meters (37,100 ft). Pretty incredible!

List natgeo's Instagram Photo @ladzinski / A pair of #GreatWhiteEgret's mirroring one another during a courting display. In the breeding seasons it's quite common for birds of nearly all shapes, sizes and species to grow out additional plumage and changed pigment, being flashy after all is how you find a mate. For the #GreatWhiteEgret the bright green color around the beak, most prominent on the male, is only seen during this time of year. In the early 1900's egret's were hunted to near extinction for their ornate "bridal train" of feathers, displayed during nesting season, to be sold and used for decorating hats. Thankfully the species has long since recovered. 1520036699362477926_787132

Steve is a conservation #biologist and ornithologist who oversees the Okavango Wilderness Project, a National Geographic-supported initiative to protect the pristine Okavango Delta in Botswana. Steve has studied the Okvango ecosystem for more than 15 years and is deeply committed to its preservation. I've joined Steve and his team as they commence their latest MegaTransect which covers over 1000 kilometers of the #Cubango River, a main tributary into the Okavango Delta. Each day the team navigates the river in mekoros, a type of traditional dug out canoe commonly used in the Delta. They take water samples, note bird and wildlife species and collect other data regarding the river's ecosystem. Steve is undoubtedly one of the brightest and most driven people I've ever encountered.

It’s the end of the road for “The Greatest Show on Earth.” The Ringling Bros. traveling circus is performing it’s final shows today in Long Island, New York. The circus has been a piece of Americana for 146 years, but high operating costs and low ticket sales brought about its demise, ownership announced in January. Hundreds of workers make up the circus, including performers and train conductors and other behind-the-scenes personnel. Many have spent their lives on the traveling trains, which can reach up to a full mile long as they move from coast to coast for 44 weeks of the year. #circus #curtain #change #clown 1519788777257536274_787132

List natgeo's Instagram Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // An elephant disembarks a Ringling Bros. train in Washington, D.C., in 2015. Elephants have since been retired from the circus. This evening the curtain will fall for the last time on the self-dubbed “Greatest Show on Earth,” America’s biggest and longest-running traveling circus. After 146 years, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will pump its caravan brakes permanently. Other traveling circuses may not be far behind. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have joined forces on a bill that would ban the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling circuses and any other entertainment act on wheels. In late March, Representatives Raul Grijalva, an Arizona Democrat, Ryan Costello, a Pennsylvania Republican, and 22 other lawmakers introduced the Traveling Exotic Animal and Public Safety Protection Act (TEAPSPA) in the House. It would require the 19 traveling circuses in the U.S. with performing animals to to use only human entertainers—or shut down. If the bill passes, it will end life on the road for more than 200 big cats, bears, camels, and elephants still working as circus performers. Thirty-four other countries have instituted similar bans, as have dozens of cities and counties in the U.S., including Los Angeles and San Francisco. #elephants #circus #train 1519634996481854327_787132

On this day in 2010 (21 May) after years of preparation and rescheduled launches, the Astra 
3B satellite finally entered orbit …
SES Astra, permitted me to follow the manufacture and launch programme of their Astra 3B, one of the biggest satellites ever launched but otherwise an everyday, common-or-garden satellite tasked with reflecting digital TV signals down onto 
Germany and Holland. It would be built mostly in Toulouse, flown from Betzdorf in Luxembourg and launched from the huge space complex at Kourou in French 
Guiana, South America. After 500 seconds it was out of gas and within a half hour successfully positioned in high orbit. Astra's up there now, in a highly elliptical loop; sometimes 36,000 km away and sometimes swooping down to just 250km above 
our heads.
