Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by @noralorek. Irene Sonia, 17, wants to become a bank accountant but the school in Bidibidi refugee settlement doesn’t offer relevant subjects. Last summer the war broke out in her hometown of Yei in South Sudan. After her father was killed and their schools closed down Irene and her family escaped to Uganda. Since then her mother Esther has been fighting for better education in the refugee settlements in northern Uganda to ensure her kids a better future when going back home to South Sudan.
.
In August the one millionth refugee from South Sudan entered Uganda in escape of the war. 
With most of the refugees being women and children and leaving during shootings at night their bedsheets called Milaya are often one of the few things they carry with them. The handmade patterns have been made in South Sudan and Sudan for generations and the tradition of the Milayas continues in what has become their temporary home while waiting for the war to end. Bidibidi is now with its more than 270.000 people considered the worlds largest refugee settlement.

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by @CristinaMittermeier //A mussel farm worker examines a rope where thousands of #baby mussels have been growing while they reach commercial size.  Mussels are a great example of 3-D #OceanFarming, in which the entire water column is utilized, and no feed, pesticides or antibiotics are required to produce a high quality protein. BIvalves are a great choice for ocean farming because they also filter 20-30 gallons of water per day.  Galicia, in northern Spain is the largest producer of mussels in Europe, with over 200,000 tonnes of high quality mussels per year.

Find out natgeo's Instagram Image by @joelsartore | This #pollinatormonday showcases a curious kinkajou from the New York State Zoo. This furry pollinator is native to Central and South America, and is a member of the Procyonidae family, making it a distant cousin of the Raccoon. The kinkajou has ankles that can rotate 180 degrees which allows it to run very quickly down trees to evade predators like the harpy eagle. The kinkajou is often known as the “honey bear” due to its habit of raiding beehives for their honey, much to the dismay of the bees. Its short, coarse fur is natural protection against angry bee stings. When not raiding hives, its five-inch tongue allows it to easily dip into the flowers of fruit-bearing trees in the rain forest. This long tongue coupled with an insatiable sweet tooth makes the kinkajou a valuable pollinator for many fruits and flowers in the rain forest. Though classified basically as a carnivore, the kinkajou will go from flower to flower, drinking nectar, and spreading the pollen on its fur to the next tasty snack. Now that’s a handy sweet tooth!

Giant petrels are opportunistic feeders taking advantage of living and dead prey and are often found living at the edge of penguin colonies. This curious and funny creature had to test everything that was loose or dangling, it would gently pull on camera cords and my mask straps before it decided they were not edible. // photographed with @natgeo @natgeocreative // #ocean #giantpetrel #explore #subantarctic #southgeorgia for #moreocean follow @daviddoubilet 1611548856964409216_787132

A young Rohingya refugee in Shahparir, after she crossed the border from Myanmar to Bangladesh.
In the past four weeks, more than 420,000 Rohingya Muslims, an ethnic minority group, have fled their homes in Myanmar in what the United Nations human rights chief has called “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.”
The conflict erupted on Aug. 25, after a Rohingya militant group attacked army security posts in the country’s west coast state of Rakhine.
The rohingya, often called the most persecuted minority in the world, have been facing discrimination in Myanmar for decades. 1611346028199282163_787132

I've been shooting pictures in this incredible reserve for a forthcoming National Geographic Magazine story about enhanced anti-poaching operations. These efforts are far-reaching, of course, aiming to deter ivory poaching but also to interrupt the practice of bushmeat hunting, which remains a persistent problem in certain areas of the park.  Before this assignment, I'd only visited the Mara as a tourist. It's incredible to see all that goes on behind the scenes.

Find out natgeo's Instagram Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @tooyoungtowed // Kadiatu, a teenage obstetric fistula survivor,
reacts to being able to walk safely and independently with the use of splints on her feet. She was participating in "Fistula Camp" at the Aberdeen Women's Center in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Obstetric fistula is one of the most devastating and serious childbirth injuries and is the result of extreme pressure and tissue damage during prolonged or obstructed labor.  When the fetus cannot fit through a mother’s pelvis due to her small stature stature, and if a Caesarean section delivery is not available to end the ordeal, the baby is usually stillborn and a fistula — or abnormal opening between the vagina and rectum or bladder — forms, resulting in severe incontinence. In many cases, like Kadiatu’s, women and girls can also experience peroneal nerve injury, resulting in leg weakness, foot drop and difficulty in walking. Those who attended the camp underwent surgeries to repair their fistulas, treat their decreased mobility, and improve their self-esteem.

This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Paris, France. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo, including this one. The show ends tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 24, and is complete with educational information about the dangers of #childmarriage and the efforts underway around the world to end the practice – including our work at our nonprofit organization of the same name, @TooYoungToWed.

Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania.
The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the annual dry season. It covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers (1,100 square miles.) The landscape is composed of granitic ridges, river valley, and swamps. Vegetation is a mix of Acacia woodland, Commiphora-Combretumwoodland, seasonally flooded grassland, and Baobab trees.

Find out natgeo's Instagram This past summer I traveled to the Dead Sea in Israel, and was captivated by this amazing landscape. Taking in this serene scene of the beautiful blue salt water in contrast with the algae filled green pond was a bittersweet moment as I learned that this was created by the surface shrinking 30% in the last 20 years. The Dead Sea has been shrinking at a rate of more than one meter per year causing major sink holes and heavily receding sea shores. Major parts of the Dead Sea are now closed to the public due to some of these environmental changes. To see more images like this follow me @stephenwilkes.

Within minutes thousands of civilian volunteers, police, military, worked together at times with their bare hands to uncover survivors. Work sites became centers for aid. Parks filled with donations of water, medicine, and food for those in Mexico City and surrounding areas. Much of the effort continues, especially in rural communities. Today a 6.1 earthquake hit, sending a nervous population again into the streets. #fuerzamexico 1610331862705457462_787132

Deep in Kenya's Muranga County, the river meanders between hills and sustains artisanal tea plantations, which in turn sustain the community. Foot paths span its banks, from which I cast my fly line with rainbow trout in mind. Owing to Muranga's high altitude, the days are both radiant and temperate at once, allowing for comfortable wading in pursuit of fish. In between assignments, I visit Muranga as often as I possible. It is, perhaps, the most serene and restorative place I know.
