Video by Michaela Skovranova @mishkusk | A young Green Turtle is enjoying a jellyfish meal off the East Coast of Australia. Juvenile green turtles are omnivores and will happily feed on almost anything, jellyfish included. As they grow older their diet tends to shift towards consuming seagrass and algae. Because sea turtles are reptiles, they are much less likely to suffer from the adverse effects of the jellyfish stinging cells. Unfortunately for turtles, it is often hard to distinguish a piece of floating plastic from a jellyfish. Research has shown that a turtle has a 22% chance of dying if it eats just one piece of plastic. Us humans have excellent opportunity to help - we can opt for plastic-free alternatives, shop consciously or even collect a few pieces of debris on our walk home. Drains and rivers lead to the ocean, therefore, no matter where in the world you are every little bit counts. #plasticfree #ocean #underwater #nature #wildlife #australia #julianrocks greenturtle

The Battersea is a decommissioned coal-fired power station that is being redeveloped, with the aim of becoming one of the greenest buildings in the world. This photo was taken on assignment for @natgeo.

Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown | I met this Bedouin boy as he rested under a highway connecting Jerusalem and Jericho. Scattered throughout the region, the Bedouins trace their heritage back to traders on the ancient Spice Route. By the turn of the 20th century, much of their population was settled or semi-nomadic and engaged in agriculture according to an intricate system of land ownership, grazing rights, and water access. With the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, the Bedouins were further limited in their movement, with living grounds reduced. Despite Israel’s long-standing strategy to urbanize the Bedouin population, many prefer to continue to live a traditional lifestyle in unrecognized villages, without official permission and municipal services such as electric, sewage, or water systems. These villages are largely composed of makeshift shacks made of wood and tin, with villagers earning a living by raising livestock such as sheep and goats.

Photo by @lynseyaddario | I photographed a training day for policewomen in Afghanistan as part of my @natgeo story ‘Veiled Rebellion.’ Pictured above, Afghan policewomen handle AMD-65 rifles at a dusty firing range outside Kabul. They are trained by carabinieri, Italian military police from the local NATO troops. Joining the police force is a bold decision for an Afghan woman. Insurgents often attack the police. Very few women get permission from their husband and male relatives. Of 100,000 officers, only about 700 are female. Yet women are welcome recruits. They can take on tasks that men cannot because of Islamic custom: frisking other women, searching homes where female family members are present. Many who take the job are widows of fallen officers cast in the role of breadwinner. April 2010. #photojournalism #itswhatido lynseyaddario

Photo by @CarltonWard | As the first cold fronts of fall blow in and Gulf of Mexico temperatures drop, manatees will begin migrating to the relatively warm waters of Florida’s freshwater springs. This mother and calf were seeking refuge while a winter rain dappled the surface of Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. Maintaining safe passage for manatees is critical during this time of year. Being hit by boats is the leading cause of injury for this vulnerable marine mammal which through conservation efforts has gradually recovered from former endangered status. We swam with manatees at this site during the 2015 #FloridaWildlifeCorridor #Glades2Gulf #manatee #GulfofMexico #springs #FloridaWild KeepFLWild

Video by @amivitale | An adult elephant herd socializes on the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. An elephant trunk is comprised of over 44,000 muscles and trunks are used for eating, drinking, as snorkels, for pushing, leading, “shaking hands” and reassuring other elephants. These sentient giants are nature’s great engineers. By voraciously eating the trees and brush, they keep the land open and grassy. Without the elephants, other wildlife, people and livestock all suffer. Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy is home to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. Follow @amivitale @conservationorg & @r.e.s.c.u.e to learn about the incredible work being done to protect and preserve these magical beings. @nrt_kenya @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @tusk_org @thephotosociety @natgeo #namunyak #protectelephants #bekindtoelephants #DontLetThemDisappear #elephants #saveelephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #natureisspeaking #everydayafrica #photojournalism amivitale

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | November 11, 2018, marked a century since the end of the First World War. Over the past couple of years I've been working on a project studying its aftermath. Here stands the Chattri memorial on the outskirts of Brighton on the south coast of England. More than 800,000 Indian soldiers fought in the war, and thousands of wounded were brought to Britain to be treated in makeshift hospitals. Three were established in Brighton. The memorial was built in 1920 at the exact location of funeral pyres used for the cremation of soldiers who died in Brighton as a result of their injuries.

Photo by @BrianSkerry | Green sea turtles mating off Buck Island in St. Croix in the US Islands. These waters were protected by President Kennedy in 1961 as a U.S. National Marine Monument. Because of this and the work of the National Park Service at Buck Island, animals like sea turtles have rebounded, along with so many more in these important ecosystems.

Photo by @beverlyjoubert | A possible future king of Duba Plains. The Okavango is characterized by wide-open plains of short grass interspersed with numerous termite mounds. These mounds are hugely important in this ecosystem. While termites play an important role in breaking down dead vegetation, their towering mounds provide homes to a number of animals—from warthogs to aardvarks. When termites emerge after the rains in millions—winging their way across the landscape—they feed many species of birds, reptiles, and mammals, and even lions sometimes. The mounds also supply important dry ground when the system floods, shade during the heat of the day, and an excellent vantage point for predators to survey the landscape and plan their next hunt. This little lion has a long way to go until he takes down his first lechwe, but from a good vantage point he'll be able to watch his mother and aunts as they hunt—and he will learn. #littlebigcats #okavangolions #TsaroPride DubaPlains

Photo by @lynseyaddario | Iraqis watch a 3D movie in Baghdad for my @natgeo story, ‘Baghdad after the Storm.’ Moviegoers at Baghdad's first 4D cinema get an extra thrill from shaking seats and wind machines during a 3D sci-fi film. During the worst years of violence, families stayed home to watch TV or DVDs. Most cinemas closed, as did this one, though it now has plans to expand and reopen. Despite hardships and lingering violence, residents imagined a new version of the ancient city. February 2010. #photojournalism #itswhatido lynseyaddario
