The Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest is the home of the world’s oldest trees. Living over 5,000 years in the #WhiteMoutains in #California this tree is a majestic sight.

Where we left off. Hard to believe it's been nearly a year since I last saw @mrbenbrown and @stevebooker. Back then we were just pups running around Alberta. Next week we get to reunite in Canada. This time in city of Ottawa. Looking forward to it gents. 🇺🇸🇨🇦🇬🇧 #stayandwander

Photo: @FransLanting | I post this in memory of Cecil the Lion, who was recently killed by an American trophy hunter. Cecil lived in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, where he and his pride were well known to countless visitors, just as I knew this handsome male from Botswana. I share with you the words of famed primatologist Jane Goodall, posted on her website today: “I was shocked and outraged to hear the story of Cecil, Zimbabwe’s much loved lion. Not only is it incomprehensible to me that anyone would want to kill an endangered animal (fewer than 20,000 wild lions in Africa today) but to lure Cecil from the safety of a national park and then to shoot him with a crossbow...? I have no words to express my repugnance. He was not even killed outright, but suffered for hours before finally being shot with a bullet. And his magnificent head severed from his wounded body. And this behaviour is described as a “sport." Only one good thing comes out of this – thousands of people have read the story and have also been shocked. Their eyes opened to the dark side of human nature. Surely they will now be more prepared to fight for the protection of wild animals and the wild places where they live. Therein lies the hope.” You can sign an online petition asking Zimbabwe to stop issuing hunting permits to kill endangered animals, like Cecil: @natgeo @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #lion #Africa #Cecil #CecilTheLion #BigCats #Zimbabwe #HwangeNationalPark #JaneGoodall #Hope

As a frequent visitor to Africa and an ardent appreciator of its cultures, wildlife and beauty, this sickens me. 55k can provide food and an education to ALOT of children in Zimbabwe. Even the Masai do not kill the lion unless it directly threatens their livestock. #Repost @troyzan with @repostapp.

Photo by @stephenwilkes: On the road, almost to the location that will serve as the subject of my next #DayToNight, when I spotted this incredible sunset! Anyone care to guess where I'm headed? #DayToNight #sunset #iPhoneonly

Incredible I live and can easily access something like this.

Photo: @stevewinterphoto. Posting an oldie but goodie here in honor of #GlobalTigerDay. This image of a mother and her cub graces the cover of my book Tigers Forever, published by @natgeo and written by environmental journalist Sharon Guynup. 10% of proceeds from book sales go directly to @PantheraCats tiger conservation efforts."Tigers Forever" spans my career photographing these beautiful creatures while telling the story of their fight for survival. Lost of habitat, illegal poaching and animal-human conflict are three of the biggest issues facing today's remaining 3,000 or so wild tigers. Good news is there are solutions to these issues and many tiger conservation groups are working to implement these solutions. Visit to learn about these organizations and how you can help. #tiger #wildlife #motherandchild #wildlifephotography #conservation #wildlifeconservation #India #bandhavgarh #animalsinthewild #BigCatsForever #Tiger #Tigersforever #NatGeo #Bigcats #NatGeoLive #wildlife #BigCatInitiative #BCI #saveourtigers #savethetiger #InternationalTigerDay #SavetheTiger #5forBigCats

My second assingment for @NatGeo was a story about #Patagonia Dinosaur hunters. I worked with #RodlofoCoria and several others. One of the main stars of the job was the landscapes of the area. They were hard believe, the color and the scale of the vistas. They helped me to imagine another world, one that might have been home to so many Late #Cretaceous #dinosaurs.@RobertClarkphoto @thephotosociety @Natgeo @instituteArtist #sunset

Photo by @ciriljazbec / My trip in Kenya has totally exceeded my expectations in a very positive way. I have met so many inspiring young entrepreneurs with incredible visions and dreams. Last weekend we went to Naivasha to take photos of the technology impact in the countryside. Luckily there was also some time to visit the amazing Hell's Gate National Park which lies north west of Nairobi. We got up early in the morning one day to capture this sunrise view looking at the Fischer's Tower. The Hell's Gate was actually an inspiration for The Lion King 1994 movie. Lead crew members of the film went to the park to study and gain appreciation of the environment for the film. @ciriljazbec @natgeo #Hells #Gate #Kenya #rising

Photo by@stephenwilkes: As I shift gears from one location to the next, it’s been nice to make a pit stop at my favorite vacation spot #BlockIsland and relax for a bit. Tomorrow, I’ll head to a new location to shoot my next #DayToNight for @natgeo. Stay tuned to find out where! #summer #vacation #infinitypool #relax

Paddled in another world over the weekend. Still and quiet at times, yet there were occasional groaning and cracking from the massive glacier we were next to.

Take a step back in time and paddle through history along the #UpperMissouri Wild and Scenic River in #Montana. You can camp in the same locations as the 1805 Lewis and Clark expedition on your multi-day canoe expedition down the “Big Muddy.” The unique geology and harsh landscapes that were extensively described by Lewis and Clark are in a condition that has changed little since the passage of the expedition. Historic homesteads dot the river banks, and remnants of the steamboat era remain in inscriptions that were etched on the rock walls. Sunset photo by Bob Wicks, @mypubliclands. 🚣⛺️

The San Rafael falls, the tallest #waterfall in Ecuador. The Coca River vaults down the 480-foot waterfall and cascades through steep canyons toward the Amazon. But in recent years, nearly 1,000 #Chinese engineers and workers have been pouring concrete for a dam and a 15-mile underground tunnel that is part of a $2.2 billion hydroelectric plant project a few miles away. When the dam is complete, it will divert water to produce electricity, nearly drying up a 40-mile stretch of the river — including the falls — for several months of the year. According to the executive director of the Ecuadorian Rivers Institute, “it would be like leaving Niagara Falls without water.” This #nytweekender, we’re sharing photos from #Ecuador by @ivankphoto, a photographer based in Quito who worked on a story about China’s investments in Ecuador and elsewhere. #thechinafactor
