Photo by @CarltonWard // It gives me hope for our planet to meet young people connected to the land and committed to their heritage. For Kane Jumper that heritage runs deeper than most. As a Seminole from the Panther Clan, he carries forward 500 years of tradition with horses and cattle and thousands of years in the land we now call America. Over the past two weeks, Kane worked with his family to gather cattle from their Brighton and Big Cypress Reservations. The Seminole Tribe of Florida is the 7th largest producer of beef cattle in the US, all while sustaining their culture, protecting the Everglades from development and maintaining wildlife habitat critical to the @FL_WildCorridor. @young_savage1993 #NativePride #Seminole #pathofthepanther #LivingHeritage #KeepFLWild @natgeo @ilcp_photographers

In a year of hiking in incredible places, almost nothing can compare to walking inside the crater at Haleakala National Park. And it is such a shame because most people visiting this park stay on the rim and look down into it. But getting inside is where the magic is. This was taken deep inside the crater along the Sliding Sands Trail. I remember thinking how incredible this view was, and how surreal it felt to be walking here!

What's the view like from your bedroom? During the middle of day, elephants, giraffe, warthogs, impala, yellow baboons and more come to the Bilimungwe bushcamp waterhole, in South Luangwa National Park.

Photo by @babaktafreshi I like the timeless views of nature where it could be now or millions of years ago. Trees appeared on our planet about 370 million years ago, when the sun was in a different neighborhood of the Galaxy. There are now some 3 trillion trees on Earth but the two (dead & alive) pictured here are very eccentric. The Bristlecone Pine is adopted to high altitude and harsh climate. It is among the longest-lived life forms on Earth, some live for over 5000 years! Photographed on White mountains, California.

photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Ethiopia, Danakil. Assale, The Plain of Salt. A caravan of camels silhouetted on the horizon. The Danakil is the homeland of the Afars. These nomads, who are mainly devoted to sheep farming and to the extraction of minerals, live in one of the most inhospitable places on earth, with very little vegetation and temperatures that can reach 110° F degrees. Moreover, this is one of the most vulnerable places of our world: The fire is just below our feet, five kilometers away. @andrea_frazzetta @instituteartist #Danakil #Ethiopia #Africa #🐪🐪🐪

By @drewtrush // Swiftcurrent Lake and the Many Glacier hotel are excellent jumping off points for your next adventure to Glacier National Park. We spent a couple days here exploring the lakes and doing some hiking with @natgeoexpeditions. Where are you heading this weekend? • #glacier #getoutside #weekendvibe

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - We are here in Grindelwald, Switzerland at the foot of the famous Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains at the beginning of a National Geographic Student Expedition program to the Alps. These peaks have provided countless mountaineers with incredible joy, but at the same time many have perished in such brave and valiant attempts to scale the great north face of the Eiger. If this vast wall of rock could speak, what would they tell us? Pictured is the scenic mountain village of Mürren with the Jungfrau mtn emerging from the clouds behind. Next stop, Zermatt. #natgeostudentexpeditions

photograph by @susanseubert // The view of #MtHood from Tom Dick and Harry Mountain, 7 miles south of Mt. Hood in the state of Oregon. It is named for its 3 peaks, the highest at 5,070 and is considered a foothill of Mt. Hood. From the top, the famed Mirror lake is visible and on a clear day, 5 mountains can be seen, including Mt. Jefferson to the south and Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helen's and Mt. Rainier to the north. #oregon Follow @susanseubert for more from Oregon and beyond!!

Photo @pedromcbride // Vertical world. Giraffes, the tallest mammals on earth, spend most of their lives just like this — standing up. They eat, sleep and even give birth on four hooves. But this iconic and beloved animal is in danger of extinction. In just 15 years, their populations have dropped by more than 40 percent. Their biggest threat: Us. Giraffes are prized for their meat, coats and tails, their habitat is being fragmented and degraded by development, and climate change is extending the droughts of the dry season. #africa #wildlife #giraffe #climatechange #endangered

Although Death Valley is scorching hot right now, in the spring and fall the temps are a lot easier to deal with and it provides fantastic opportunities for landscape photography. #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #california

After two evenings and a couple beers of having this crocodile skull staring at me, I couldn't help trying to make an image out of it. So I put my camera on a tripod, my cell phone inside the skull for mood lighting, and exposed for the flood lights that illuminate animals coming to the Bilimungwe Bushcamp water hole. Bilimungwe is deep inside South Luangwa National Park, were the wildlife viewing is extraordinary. Follow @BushcampCompany to see more great images from South Luangwa National Park.
