Photo by @amivitale | Children carry water for their teacher in Zigberi, a remote part of Burkina Faso in the desert region near the Mali border. The village had no school; after years of waiting, the parents, desperate to get an education for their children, decided to build their own. Female education in Burkina Faso and West Africa is particularly difficult, given the demands placed on the women and girls in society to do all the household work, such as pounding the millet, preparing food, and getting wood and water, which is sparse and often kilometers away. Today is World Water Day: billions worldwide still do not have access to clean water. Women and girls spend 200 million collective hours daily seeking and hauling water for their communities, a task that steals their time and potential. Learn more, including how you can help, by following @amivitale and looking for organizations, locally and globally, making clean water a reality for everyone. #water #cleanwater #worldwaterday

Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto | With iconic Matterhorn mountain looming large in the background, two explorers search the surface of ice for moulins and caves that could lead them down to the contact point where the glacier meets the rock of the valley floor. During the middle of the night, when it is the coldest and there is no running meltwater, is the safest time to explore these caves.

Photo by @timlaman | I wonder what he’s thinking. Does he know, or have any sense, that his species, the Tapanuli orangutan, is the most critically endangered of all the great apes, with only 800 left in the world? This population of orangutans in Sumatra, Indonesia, was just discovered in 2017 to be a unique species, distinct from the other populations of Sumatran orangutan and Bornean orangutan. Now a dam project in its only stronghold threatens its future. It is up to the people of Indonesia and their government to decide their priorities. Will the Tapanuli orangutan be one of the treasures of Indonesia’s biodiversity? The orangutans can’t control their own fate–it is in human hands. Learn more about the Tapanuli orangutan on my feed @TimLaman.  #orangutan #tapanuliorangutan #tapanuli #sumatra #indonesia #endangered #endangeredspecies

Photo by @paulnicklen | Off the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, a pair of northern right whale dolphins gracefully breaks the water’s surface. These dolphins are unique in that they lack dorsal fins, allowing the glassy ocean waves to flow seamlessly around their slick bodies. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for more photos of marine mammals from around the world. #dolphin #ocean #wildlife #photography

Photo by @amivitale | An orphaned baby southern white rhino grazes at his home, Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta). At the end of the 19th century, southern white rhino were on the brink of extinction, with only one small population of 20 to 50 animals remaining in South Africa. Today, thanks to one of the most successful collective conservation efforts of the century, there are now thriving populations in East and southern Africa—about 20,000 of these amazing creatures. Despite this rebound, poaching remains a massive threat to all rhinos, and each individual is carefully cared for and guarded. In a world of seven  billion, we need to start recognizing that we are not separate from nature. When we see ourselves as part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves. Learn how to get involved by following @amivitale and @olpejeta

Photo by @tasneemalsultan | One of the many advantages of Dubai is the different landscapes. On the perfectly manicured grass at the side of a creek, I can also view Dubai's contemporary skyscrapers. Another 40-minute drive, and I'll find myself in the midst of the sand dunes. #dubai #uae

Photo by @coryrichards | Norbu, a Tibetan kitchen worker, stands for a portrait at 21,000 feet, below a fierce wind plume blowing off the summit of Everest. Every year, over a thousand people come to climb Everest. And every year, the climb is made possible by countless seemingly nameless individuals like Norbu. The infrastructure of Himalayan climbing is built, quite  literally, on the backs of people like him. Norbu shoulders a bag of freshly chopped glacial ice, which will be melted for water.  This is a trip he makes roughly 10 times a day for around six weeks. I will be attempting a new route on Everest this spring, and it’s people like Norbu make climbs like mine possible.

#followme @coryrichards for more visual storytelling #onassignment for #natgeo and previously unseen footage of the #culture #travel #adventure of the #Himalayas including my upcoming climb on the North East face of #everest.

For National Geographic’s cities-themed issue, I walked the streets of Tokyo, home to more than 37 million people, to photograph one of the most dynamic, safest, and most innovative cities on earth. For more Tokyo photos and video, please take a look at our story “Walking Tokyo: A Journey Through The Rich Textures of Japan’s Vibrant, Reinvented Megacity. Link in bio @dguttenfelder.

Photo by Aaron Huey @argonautphoto |  Sometimes you plan a whole trip around one idea, one image. I knew I wanted to get to THIS place: the precarious camp 2 on #AmaDablam.  I knew I wanted this shot, and even though I'm not a mountaineer, I climbed up to 21,000 feet to get it. In this image you can see Danuru Sherpa coiling ropes that will be used to make the safety lines for commercial expeditions to the summit of this epic peak. Only four to five tents can fit at camp 2, and they all tilt.  Above this spot, there is no space for a real camp and too much danger of an avalanche. Follow @argonautphoto for more dramatic mountain photos and #Sherpa life. #Khumbu #Nepal

Photo by @hannahreyesmorales | This little stream in the Sierra Madre is a special place to me: true and wild, with gentle light. The Sierra Madre is the longest mountain range in the Philippines. The mountains act as a natural barrier from typhoons and storm surges—locals will often assert that the Sierra Madre protects us. I found shelter and clarity there. And as much as our identity in the Philippines is anchored toward our southern seas, I felt so connected to our mountains in the north too. There's so much to learn from her strength, her intensity, her nurturing. Follow @hannahreyesmorales for more stories about the Philippines and beyond.
