Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by: @renaeffendiphoto When I came to Khinaliq, Azerbaijan's highest inhabited village, a shepherd and the town’s elder I met took me to the village cemetery. He said pointing down the hill: “If you dig a hole right through, you will see seven layers of burial ground”. Archeological evidence suggests that Khinaliq was inhabited four millennia ago and dates back to pre-Zoroastrian times. This village of nearly 1,000 shepherd families is built into the side of a mountain, each house made of river stone, one upon the other, forming a staircase to the sky. Because of its remoteness, Khinaliq still managed to preserve its ancient way of life. The people speak Khinaluq, a unique endangered dialect attributed to the northeastern group of the Caucasus languages. The source of income is mainly sheep breeding. While men graze their flocks in mountain pastures, the women weave traditional carpet designs from wool.

So named for the 12 glaciers that ring it’s 7509 meter summit. The mountain plays hide and seek behind fast moving clouds that hide and reveal.

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by @williamalbertallard 
In the lovely but small French Basque town of Sare there was a weekend festival in the fall of 1967. These three men were standing in a doorway listening to a Basque poet. I was standing a bit below them which allowed me to frame them with just some ceiling beams above them but the base of the picture is dark with their coats and it’s their ancient appearing faces that stand out; faces that are seemingly ageless, all three intent upon what the poet is saying to them. Basque is an impossible language so I, of course, had no idea what so ever the poet was saying. But I was completely caught up in these three mens’ faces. And I still am. 
#followme @williamalbertallard for more images from the Basque Country and other assignments over five decades.

Men dance in competition during the 2017 Oglala Lakota Nation Wacipi Rodeo Fair Pow Wow, held annually on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. I spent part of this summer photographing over a dozen Indian reservations in the American West, searching to photograph the beauty and complexities of these communities and lands, the symbols of both tribal success as well as issues perennially facing the tribes. I grew up near several reservations in Washington State though knew very little about them, a common experience for many Americans. During this trip I was struck by the indigenous stewardship to the land, from the elders to the seventh generation water protectors, of taking responsibility for what we are taking out of and putting into the earth, actively keeping track of it as a community and actively fighting for it. This stewardship goes back thousands of years, an egalitarian society where individual wealth was measured not by what was saved but by what was given away. 1630022044375474162_787132

Find out natgeo's Instagram Images by @joelsartore | For thousands of creatures living on Earth, time is running out. That’s why the National Geographic Society has partnered with the Zoological Society of London to launch the Photo Ark EDGE Fellowship. The fellowship focuses on Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species and kicks off with these five unique creatures: the Antillean manatee (photographed at the @Dallas_World_Aquarium), Baird’s tapir (photographed at @theomahazoo), the giant anteater (photographed at the Caldwell Zoo), the hawksbill turtle (photographed in Xcaret, Mexico), and the volcano rabbit (photographed at the Chapultepec Zoo). These species are the subject of conservation efforts by our first fellowship candidates in Latin America. Each species has been featured in the National Geographic Photo Ark, a flagship program of the National Geographic Society founded by National Geographic photographer @JoelSartore. Once selected, the final Photo Ark EDGE fellows will undertake a 2-year fellowship project to help protect their focal species. The fellowships will leverage the power of Sartore’s captivating portraits to bring attention to the global extinction crisis and will help put effective tools in the hands of conservationists working to turn the tide for species at risk. Learn more about these species and the people working to save them by clicking the link @joelsartore’s bio. #PhotoArk 1629980416537349685_787132

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @michaelnicknichols | Jane Goodall and Jou Jou, chimpanzee at Brazzaville Zoo, Republic of Congo, 1990. I (@michaelnicknichols) grew up with Jane Goodall, Flo, Flint and Greybeard on the pages of National Geographic magazine in the 1960’s, and wildly came to photograph Fifi, Frodo, Freud and Jane in the 1990’s. Jane and I collaborated on the book Brutal Kinship, bringing to light the disappearing terrain chimpanzees relied on to live, and how we humans cruelly and without irony used our closest relative as stand-in surrogates for space exploration, HIV and hepatitis research, language studies, and entertainment.
-
Jane, 83, is still at it, traveling nonstop on her mission. She recently closed my exhibit WILD at the Philadelphia Museum of Art with a talk that brought me and the entire house to tears.
-
Opening in theaters today is a masterpiece film by Brett Morgen. #JANE is an intense love story made from footage literally found in the NatGeo HQ basement from legendary Dutch filmmaker Hugo van Lawick, and includes a beautiful score by ‪Philip Glass‬. This is far more revealing than any huge budget biopic could ever hope to match. #JANE 1629926595496903912_787132

This time I travelled to Qaanaaq and Siorapaluk, the world’s northernmost settlements to investigate how climate change has affected the lives of indigenous people, the community of around 700 Inughuits which in spite of several alarming climate and cultural threats persists with the traditional age-old way of hunting. These people are on the frontier of the climate change that is eventually going to affect us all. On the picture, you can see Qaanaaq and a frozen fjord in the back.

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by @FransLanting A ribbon of water winds across dry plains surrounding Botswana’s Okavango Delta as morning mist shrouds the contours of the landscape. The delta is an intricate tapestry of dry land and wet land, with ever shifting boundaries defined by the ebb and flow of water. Fed by a river that begins a thousand miles away in the highlands of Angola, the delta spreads out across the Kalahari Desert sands of northern Botswana. The miracle of water in the desert attracts multitudes of animals from antelopes to elephants. The delta became a World Heritage Site in 2014, but its future is by no means secure. Read the story in the November issue of @NatGeo to learn more. This image is featured in our new book, “Into Africa,” which is based on our National Geographic exhibition, also entitled “Into Africa,” currently on display at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History through October 22.

Find out 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
