List natgeo's Instagram Photo by @andreabruce  In an Indian village where malnutrition is common, a child sleeps in a swing made from a scarf.
When I covered the issue of sanitation and open defecation for the August issue of National Geographic, the village of Peepli Kheera in India had only one toilet, kept under lock and key by one family. The entire community defecated outside. Men in the fields on one side of the village, women on the other. I revisited the village last month and saw several toilets being built by the government — though building them is only part of the battle. 
About half of Indians defecate outside without using toilets. Children pick up parasites and chronic infections that impair the ability of the intestines to absorb nutrients — 117,000 Indian children die each year from diarrhea related to this, according to UNICEF. #india #sanitation #children @noorimages 1629315812735950850_787132

These channels fill with often 5 different species of shark at a time throughout the day as each pay visit to the shallows for food. Sharks can breath easier in the Bahamas since the government banned all commercial shark fishing in country waters in 2011.

List natgeo's Instagram Photo by @BrianSkerry. 
A leatherback sea turtle crawls back to the sea after laying her eggs on the beach at Sandy Point, located on the island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. Listed as vulnerable, this species of sea turtle has an ancestry that dates back more than 100 million years. Today they face a number of anthropogenic stresses - including entanglement in fishing gear, poaching and climate change - which affects the sex of turtle hatchlings. Sandy Point is a National Wildlife Refuge, managed by the US Fish & Wildlife Service who are responsible for protecting these nesting beaches. The combination of conservation efforts here and in the nearby Buck Island Reef National Monument have benefitted sea turtle species in this region.

I made this photo under moonlight at 2am, after weeks of working at night on these beaches. Being in this place with these ancient animals was like traveling back in time to a primordial Earth.

This picture won first place in the Reptiles and Amphibians Category of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition on October 17th in London.

Photographed for the February 2017 cover story in @natgeo about saving our oceans.

In 1980 I was photographing in Oaxaca, Mexico with its generous color palette evidenced in the buildings and the clothing of its inhabitants.  I stopped each day at an interior market where I saw this wall and stayed to make pictures of passersby such as this woman carrying a baby. As people passed I watched how they fit into the seemingly random pattern of the painted wall with its large white space that proved to be a useful background.

#followme @williamalbertallard for more images from Oaxaca and other assignments over five decades.

List natgeo's Instagram Video by @bertiegregory. A bizarre looking Porites coral and a school of anthias (the bright orange fish). The diversity (the number of different species) of coral reefs is mind blowing. It is estimated that whilst they only occupy 1% of the ocean floor, they are home to more than 25% of the ocean's biodiversity! Coral reefs all around the world are in trouble but why should we care? Well, aside from just being awesome, they provide so many functions that are vital to human existence including coastline storm protection, fisheries production, tourism and climate regulation.

The Cuban government established a 590 square-kilometre marine preserve here in 1996, restricting tourism and banning all fishing except for lobster, a crucial element in Cuba's economy. 
Our visit comes less than a month after a category 5 Hurricane Irma struck the Camaguey Archipelago. Cuba’s marine science and conservation community was hit hard when two of Cuba’s most important marine research stations suffered extensive damage. With relations between the US and Cuba stabilizing and a potential tourism and development boom on the horizon, rebuilding is more crucial now than ever.
