The Sundarbans is a region that covers 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 square miles) of southern Bangladesh and a small section of Eastern India. This region is densely covered by mangrove forests and contains the largest natural reserve for the Bengal tiger. Over the past two centuries, approximately 6,700 square kilometers (2,600 square miles) of the Sundarbans’ land has been developed. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @nasa

Check out this incredible drone shot of two kayakers making their way down the Little White Salmon River in Washington, USA. This 19 mile tributary of the Columbia River has become a popular kayaking destination, with extended stretches of Class V (extremely difficult) rapids. /// Captured by our friend @karimiliya

Check out this Overview of Cognac, France that we made for our friends @brennewhisky! Since the 1920's their farm has been growing organic heirloom barley in this region and has used a method known as crop rotation — a tactic where different crops are grown in the same area over multiple seasons. This sustainable harvesting practice reduces soil erosion and increases crops yields. Check out @brennewhisky to learn more about their story! /// Source imagery: DigitalGlobe

The Arc de Triomphe is located at the center of twelve radiating avenues in Paris, France. Because of numerous delays such as the abdication of Napoleon, construction of the arch took nearly 30 years to complete. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe

Check out this incredible shot we found on @planet.go of Mont St. Michel in Normandy, France. Over the past 600 years, the island has functioned as a prominent monastery (accessible to pilgrims only during low tide), a French military fortification, and a prison. /// Photo found on @planet.go, drone shot by @secretagent_wesanderson

Check out this footage from the incredible film @chasingcoral that captures a vivid, blue reef of rice coral just off of the big island in Hawaii. In recent years, warmer air and rising ocean temperatures have led coral like these to lose their beautiful color due to coral bleaching. Our oceans absorb 93% of the heat emitted by greenhouse gases, making the health of corals a good indicator of how the planet is responding to warming. To learn more check out the @chasingcoral feed and we highly recommend taking the time to watch the full film, available exclusively in 4K HDR resolution on Netflix. /// Video courtesy of Chasing Coral / Netflix

The Port of Hamburg - known as Germany’s “Gateway to the World” - is located on the Elbe River in Hamburg. On an average day, the facility is accessed by 28 ships, 200 freight trains, and 5,000 trucks. In total, the port moves 132.3 million tonnes of cargo each year - that’s roughly 1/3 of the mass of all living human beings. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe

Three offshore oil rigs are seen here during their construction in Houston, Texas. On Thursday, the US government announced its plans to allow new offshore oil and gas drilling operations in nearly all United States coastal waters. This removal of restrictions put in place by the Obama administration will give energy companies access to areas off the coast of California for the first time in decades and will open more than a billion acres in the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard. In a joint statement, 64 environmental groups called the plan a “shameful giveaway” to the oil companies. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @nearmap

Check out this incredible view of the “Bomb Cyclone” - the powerful winter storm currently making its way toward the northeastern United States. From this vantage point in outer space, we can see the center of the low pressure area and a thick band of clouds bringing even more snow and gusty winds from the Mid-Atlantic states towards New England. The term “bomb cyclone” refers to the intensification of the storm that happens when an extreme drop of pressure occurs in a short period of time. /// Image and info courtesy of @nasagoddard
