@paulnicklen for @natgeo. A #mother polar #bear wraps herself around her young cubs to protect them during a blizzard. In many areas of the #Arctic, #sea #ice is melting earlier each spring and freezing later each fall stranding bears on land without a food source, having serious consequences on their health and populations. #climatechange #cute #love #photooftheday #picoftheday #natgeocreative #instagramhub #photo
Photo by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto. The Miracle Pine of Rikuzentakata (pictured here in March 2011), was the lone survivor of a shoreline forest of 70,000 trees after the epic tsunami blasted Tohoku, Japan three years ago this month. The tree quickly became a symbol of the Japanese determination to rebuild after the disaster. Sadly, a year later, it succumbed to the ravages of salt water to its roots. I belatedly learned that the tree was reconstituted, with resin sealers and a metal skeleton for support, as a sculpture that now stands in the spot where the tree defied the sea as a symbol of hope. #Tohoku #tsunami #Rikuzentakata #Japan @natgeo
Photo by @amivitale. A young child touches the trunk of his family's #elephant in #Rajasthan, #India. India was the first place that elephants were trained for domestic purposes. They were once used in the military and for heavy lifting in industry. Today, these domesticated elephants are mainly used for tourism. They can not be put back into the wild. @thephotosociety @panospictures @natgeocreative #photojournalism #amivitale #journalism #onassignment #nikon #nikonambassador #nofilter #latergram
