The Jabiru's wingspan is also huge but not quite the largest- that title belongs to the Andean Condor. The Jabiru's local name translates to mean the bird with the swollen neck! I filmed these individuals hunting for fish and amphibians along the rivers of the northern Pantanal, Brazil. Shot on assignment for @Stevewinterphoto, @natgeo and @natgeowild. Follow @bertiegregory for more videos from our jaguar project. 1457299326971546588_787132

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) and words by @M_Synnott (Mark Synnott). The Russians have identified more than 100 cave openings in the 21-mile-long southeast face of Hodja Gur Gur Ata, but to date, only 22 have been explored. Seven of them lead into the subterranean labyrinth known as Dark Star. Look carefully, and in the top right center of this image you can see one of these entrances. Caving exploration in this isolated corner of Central Asia began in the early 1980s after members of the USSR’s Sverdlosk Speleological Club identified this region’s vast limestone topography from geologic maps. The club had been searching for a place to pursue the Holy Grail of caving—to go deeper into the earth than anyone had gone before—and the Baisun-Tau Mountains, at least on paper, appeared to have all the right ingredients. Mountaineers will never find a peak higher than Everest, but the potential to find new and deeper caves is virtually unlimited. The crux is finding them, and as any caver will tell you: we know more about the surface of Mars than we do about what lies hidden beneath the ground here on earth.

Over the next few weeks we will be uploading photographs here from the Everest - Dark Star (cave) feature, which can be found in the March 2017 issue of National Geographic Magazine. Stay tuned to see more 1456785891741591016_787132

West Indian Manatees -  a mother and her calf - float above a seagrass bed off the coast of Belize, in Central America. Manatees in this region are less acclimated to humans than those in Florida and thus tend to be more elusive. Despite their hesitancy,  this pair allowed me into their world early one morning.

These “sea cows” communicate with one another through touch, as well as through patterns of squeaks and squeals. Such signals allow a mother to recognize her calf, and thus to teach the calf necessary survival skills early in life. Manatees are threatened in the wild by both boat strikes and the loss of warm water springs due to climate change. 
To learn more about these beautiful creatures, and to see more underwater photography, follow me, @BrianSkerry, on Instagram.

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by @renan_ozturk // A male Pronghorn AKA ‘American Antelope’ moving across the entrance of Utah’s Goblin Valley State Park.  Goblin Valley is known for its thousands of ‘hoodoos’ - balancing rock formations. I've always seen the three ‘sisters’ pictured here as the matriarchs of all the goblins towering at the head of the valley. ~

Tendrils of rain fell in the distances like perfect paint strokes and the herd of the fastest land mammals in the west walked right into place.  After a little panic attack that I'd miss the moment, I charged into the desert, taking a face plant in the process.  It didn't last long but there was a small moment when one of the males paused, and all the layers lined up before he darted into the distance. #utahpubliclands 1456552122661049252_787132

Find out natgeo's Instagram In honor of Big Cat Week, National Geographic caught up with six photographers to ask them about their most memorable experiences in the wild, here Clint Mecham sits on the forest floor with a sedated mountain lion in the Monroe Mountains, Utah, in 2016. 
Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid for @natgeo

Over 30 years, Clint Mecham, a predator specialist from the State of Utah Department of Natural Resources, has collared more than 400 mountain lion, monitoring the health and population of the species.
This is No. 53, a veteran of the group, who’s played a major role in the study for more than 14 years. Now that the study is coming to a close, the female lion will be released without a collar for the first time in her adult life. It’s also the last time Clint will see this lion alive. Shortly after its release, Mecham was notified by conservation officers [that No. 53 had been killed as a trophy]. What I found interesting about this particular lion and this particular gentleman was the extraordinary history that they shared. For the entire 14 years she’s been in continual combat with Clint. Each time a collar has needed changing, it’s fallen to Clint to undertake the task, and the lion has made her feelings known with tooth and claw.

This time was somewhat different. 
The lion was calm and almost accepting of Clint; it’s as if she knew her time was up and the collar would not be refitted. Clint also knew all too well that the collar perhaps offered her a small amount of safety.
There was a bond here, an understanding between two warriors…now was the time to say goodbye. 
Find all six of these extraordinary stories here:

BIG CAT WEEK is on NG WILD - http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/wild/big-cat-week/ #bigcatweek
I am excited to bring my NG LIVE presentation, “On the Trail of Big Cats” to @natgeo’s Grosvenor Theater in Washington DC on April 13th! Please come to hear about my life and work with Jaguars, Snow Leopards, Cougars and Tigers!!
14 months old tiger cubs at their waterhole in Bandhavgargh National Park in India. This is a short film put together using camera trap images.

We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals have emotions too. If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.
There are only 3400 tigers left in the wild! We need to fight for the right of tigers to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, tiger bone wine, tiger skin furniture and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice! “When the buying stops, the killing can too” #wildaid
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families, 
they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. 
They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not.

Find out natgeo's Instagram Video by @joelsartore | A group of endangered Perdido Key beach mice exploring their surroundings. 
As their name implies, these mice inhabit prime real estate- ocean front property along the Gulf of Mexico. For decades, these beach mice have struggled to persist as sand dunes turned into high-rise condominiums and hurricanes repeatedly flattened and scoured their 16-mile long island. This species most recently teetered on extinction following an active hurricane season in 2004, but now beach mouse populations are currently at a 30-year high, with over 600 individuals.  Conservation actions and Endangered Species Act protections must continue, as the next struggle may be just one hurricane season away. 
To see a portrait of these mice snuggling together, check out @joelsartore!

This species most recently teetered on extinction following an active hurricane season in 2004, but now beach mouse populations are currently at a 30-year high, with over 600 individuals. Conservation actions and Endangered Species Act protections must continue, as the next struggle may be just one hurricane season away. To see a portrait of these mice snuggling together, check out @joelsartore! . . #mice #perdidokey #cuteanimals #smallanimals #photoark #endangeredspecies #animalconservation #natgeo

Vanished for centuries, Vikings still capture our imaginations, but how much do we truly know? Did you know that they had women warrior commanders and traveled to more than 50 cultures as distant as Afghanistan and Canada? 
These medieval seafarers and warriors live on in the invented worlds of filmmakers, novelists, and comic book artists. Today most of us can reel off details of these imagined Vikings- how they fought and feasted, where they lived, how they died. But how much do we really know about the Vikings? Who were they, how did they see the world, and what were their lives truly like? Now, with advanced technology- from satellite imagery to DNA studies and isotope analysis- archeologists and other scientists are coming up with many surprising new answers. -Heather Pringle / National Geographic

For our March 2017 National Geographic cover story, "New Visions of the Vikings”, photographer @robertclarkphoto shows us the revealing archeological sites, sleek wooden ships, ornate treasures, and stunning weapons. Photographer @dguttenfelder traveled to massive Viking battle reenactments, in Wolin, Poland and reconstructed living history Viking sites across Denmark, to show the public’s ongoing fascination with Vikings and to try to bring Viking history to life. 1455910190691900177_787132

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio The Kronotsky Nature Reserve, a biosphere reserved for the study of natural sciences in the Russian Far East, on the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula. Created in 1934, it extends to over 10,000 sq km (more than 4000 sq mi). It has Russia's only geyser basin, plus several mountain ranges with numerous volcanoes, both active and extinct. Due to its often harsh climate and its mix of volcanoes and geysers, it is frequently described as the Land of Fire and Ice. The reserve is mainly accessible only to scientists, plus around 3,000 tourists each year who pay approximately US$700 to travel by helicopter for a single day's visit. Kronotsky Nature Reserve has been proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
