Video by @bertiegregory | We were following a pack of grey wolves on the coast of the Hudson Bay when one of younger members of the pack split off and began digging up sticks. She found this particular branch and started charging around and playing with it. It’s moments like this that make you realize wolves and domestic dogs really aren’t that different. Considering how much we humans like domestic dogs, it’s pretty shocking how badly we treat wild wolves around the world. Fortunately, in recent years some brilliant conservation and reintroductions mean wolves are on the comeback. We can all do our bit by getting behind these projects!

            Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | Years ago I observed this lioness in the morning—anxious, skinny, weak, and desperate. I feared she might not make it. But later in the day, she caught the scent of a kudu, killed by wild dogs. Finding  inner strength, she bounded through the river, larger than life, fearlessly scaring off the pack, holding her ground with hyenas, and earning enough nourishment until her next meal. The cycle of life and will to survive amazes me. For more wild moments, follow @pedromcbride.

Video by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | Male polar bears can weigh more than 700 kilograms, or 1,600 pounds—a potential problem when hunting seals on thin ice. Their solution: massive paws. Their paws can be 12 inches wide, allowing them to spread their weight. Their rough foot pads and short, sharp claws also give them extra traction.

            Photo by Frans Lanting @franslanting | I’m sharing this image of a young orangutan in recognition of World Orangutan Day. He has reason to look distraught. Nearly half of all orangutans—a staggering 150,000, in all—vanished from Borneo in the past 15 years, due to destruction of their forest habitat and the impact of the wild pet trade. This orphaned young male was rescued and brought to a rehab center, but he won’t have much of a future unless we protect the forests all orangutans depend on for their survival. I welcome you to support the organizations that are on the front lines of helping orangutans, with public activities as well as covert operations aimed at busting wildlife criminals. @World_Wildlife and @WildAid need your help. And follow me @FransLanting for more encounters with endangered animals around the world.

Video by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | A large male polar bear yawns during a snooze on the west coast of the Hudson Bay, in Manitoba, Canada. Aside from his blueish purple tongue, his mouth contains another interesting feature: the position of his teeth. Behind a polar bear's huge canines, there’s a gap where the teeth don’t erupt out the gum. This gap allows the canines to sink deeper into their seal prey, offering a greater grip to catch and pull seals of the water.

Video by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | A harp seal pup takes a swimming lesson with its mother in the Gulf of St Lawrence, Quebec, Canada. This species has an extraordinary breeding cycle. Females give birth to pups on moving ice floes. They suckle the pup for just 10 to 14 days. During the last few days of this short period, they encourage the pup into the water to help them learn to swim (as seen in this video). After the swimming lessons, they abandon the pup. The females then mate with the males that have been waiting nearby before heading north to their feeding grounds. The pups at two weeks old are left alone with nothing to eat.

Video by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | A male polar bear opens an eye during a nap on the west coast of Hudson Bay, Canada. This male bear was in no rush. He was waiting near the water’s edge in anticipation for the big freeze: an annual event when the ocean turns into a rock-solid ice pathway. This ice allows him to hunt his primary prey, the ringed seal. To see this guy in action and to learn more about polar bears’ incredible lives, watch ‘Wild_Life: The Big Freeze’. Premiering this Friday, 8/16 at 9pm EST on Nat Geo Wild. Follow @bertiegregory for more on the series. #bear #arctic #Cold #wildlife #wild_Life

Video by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | Mist sweeps across an area of open water during the annual freeze-up of Hudson Bay, Canada. Every autumn, this huge expanse of salt water undergoes a dramatic change. In the space of just a few days, the ocean turns into a rock-solid ice pathway. This event is hotly anticipated by polar bears—the ice allows them to hunt their primary prey, the ringed seal.

I Fucking Love Science

This video was taken by @stefanoianiromedia as the bird was being banded for research. The Royal Flycatcher can be found in parts of Central and South America. It is notable for the ornate crest atop its head. Male crests tend to be red, while the females’ have a yellow-orange tint to them. As their name suggests, Royal Flycatchers mostly eat insects. Males of the species display their crests and turn their heads from side to side when mating. These birds also display similar behavior while being held in someone’s hand. It has been suggested that this could be an example of Batesian mimicry, copying the type of animal that would be harmful for predators to eat, but this is only speculation. #science #birds #royaflycatcher #crestedbirds #royal #crown #feathers #birdwatching #research #wildlife #wildlifeprotection #ornithology #biology #mimicry

Video by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | Having recently broken out of the den with their mother, these three-month-old polar bear cubs were unbelievably cute. But although they look small here, they were born much smaller. The polar bear’s active gestation period of just 60 days means they come out the size of a squirrel and weight less than two lbs. To see more of these lovely little animals. check out my new online series "Wild_Life: The Big Freeze." Content sponsored by Destination Canada.

            Photo by Ami Vitale @amivitale | During my first trip to @lewa_wildlife, I met the incredible Leperere, pictured here with Tipper the tracking dog. Leperere is a ranger who has dedicated his life and career to guarding orphaned or abandoned endangered wildlife. Like many rangers across the world, Leperere is selfless and gives his all to protecting the vulnerable rhinos under his care. While we're confronted with stories of despair and rampant poaching across Africa, it is important to shine a light on the successes and amplify the voices like Leperere and all of his colleagues. It's not easy, but the rangers of @lewa_wildlife have proven that it's possible to achieve conservation successes: they have had zero poaching of wildlife during the last six years, and their endangered rhino population now stands at more than 200! By working with their neighboring communities and the government and by investing in technology, the team at @Lewa_wildlife is saving threatened wildlife, including the more than 200 rhinos that makes up 15% of Kenya's entire rhino population. This World Ranger Day, Learn how to get involved and support @lewa_wildlife @natgeoimagecollection @thephotosociety

            Photo by Paul Nicklen @paulnicklen | When it comes to experiences with the power to change your life, it doesn't really get more raw than when you find yourself up against an 8,000-lb elephant bull seal who's mistaken you for a rival breeding male. You're in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nothing but freezing water and icy desert, and your heart's beating so fast it feels like it's going to bruise the inside of your chest. This elephant seal came barreling toward me in defense of his harem and the entire beach, and this is what it looked like when I used my underwater housing to push him off. I accidentally hit the shutter as I scrambled to get out of his way. Other photographers ask me if they should get in the water with elephant seals in Antarctica during breeding season. The answer is no. It's like getting in the water with hippos. When this male approached me, I was in the shallows, and I made it back to land with my camera still clutched in my hands and without injury. Elephant seals beat up on each other all day long; bulls grab 1,500-pound females in the surf zone and drown them in an attempt to breed. I still do not want to play a role in affecting their behavior; it is always my prime objective to be like a ghost when I walk in the wild parts of our world. I should have known better and now I do. Please

            Photo by Brent Stirton @brentstirton | Tarangire National Park, Tanzania: A mature bull elephant schools a younger bull that was getting ahead of himself in a herd of males. The older bull pushed the younger elephant around until it was completely humbled and resumed its place in the hierarchy of the herd. One of the neglected issues of the ivory poaching crisis is that so many of the mature bulls are killed and there are very few to socialize young elephants into behavior patterns that will increase their lifespan. Human-wildlife conflict is often the result as inexperienced elephants wander into territory that can get them killed. @natgeo
