ūüď∑: @krystlejwright // The Bonneville Salt Flats are one of the most unique landscapes found in Utah. Stretching over 30000 acres, the area is a remnant of the Pleistocene Lake Bonneville and is the largest of many salt flats located west of the Great Salt Lake. Recent rains caused some unique salt crust patterns and a photographers dream to shoot images from an aerial perspective from a paraglider.

This picturesque rocky coastline is located along #CostaRica’s Osa Peninsula, a true gem of biodiversity in Central America.

photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Rwanda. A picture of Muhoza, a Silverback Gorilla living in the forest of the Volcanoes National Park.
There are only several hundred mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa. 
Gorillas can climb trees but are usually found on the ground in communities of up to 30 individuals. These troops are organized according to fascinating social structures. Troops are led by one dominant, older adult male, often called a silverback because of the swath of silver hair that adorns his otherwise dark fur. A gorilla group is named after the Silverback leading the family. Each gorilla group has distinct and unique characteristic quiet different from another. The animals are peaceful, gentle, social, and mainly vegetarian creatures.
Many conservation initiatives are meant to aid mountain gorillas, and it is believed that their numbers may be steady or slowly increasing. Still, they continue to face major threats from habitat loss and poaching.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Cerro Torre (on the left) and Cerro Fitz Roy (tallest peak on the right) rising above El Chalten in Patagonian Argentina. This view never gets old and this has to be one of my favorite places on the planet. The weather can be extreme but this is one serious playground for alpinists, backpackers and photographers looking for inspiration. #patagonia #cerrotorre #fitzroy #elchalten

Photo @stephen_matera // A rare winter sunset on Mt. Rainier. Sunny days in winter are rare in the Northwest, even more rare on Mt. Rainier as it's massive size creates its own clouds, even when it's sunny nearby. With almost 13,000 feet of vertical rise on the western side of the mountain, Mt. Rainier is thousands of feet bigger than anything else nearby. Follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from Washington and around the world. #winter #sunset #volcano #glacier

Photo by @amivitale. Yusuf sleeps with young black rhinos at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife). This was my first glimpse into the unwavering commitment of these keepers and the sacrifices they make to protect endangered animals. The calf he rested his head on was orphaned when poachers killed his mother and the calf was immediately moved to Lewa, about 50 miles away. Much needed attention has been focused on the plight of wildlife and the conflict between heavily armed poachers and increasingly militarized wildlife rangers. But very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the front lines of the poaching wars and the incredible work they do to protect these animals. They hold the key to saving Africa’s great animals.

I'm Ami Vitale (@amivitale) and I've spent the past 8 years discovering and documenting unique conservation efforts in northern Kenya that protect wildlife, people, and cultures alike. You can read my latest @NatGeo article: http://tinyurl.com/kvopc69 to learn about the first community owned elephant and rhino sanctuary in East Africa (@r.e.s.c.u.e)

Photo by @babaktafreshi 
A winter night in a traditional Sami village near Kiruna in Swedish Lapland. Aurora is a master artist of nature with its ever changing forms and colors painted by these dancing lights in polar areas. Seeing these patterns it becomes easier to understand why some cultures called them the dancing spirits and departed souls (as Sami people called them). Wonder where and when to see the lights, see my @natgeo web article ‚Äú7 Magical Places to View Auroras‚ÄĚ. Google aurora natgeo. Follow me @babaktafreshi to explore more of the world at night.

Photograph by @paulnicklen // During a blizzard on Svalbard, Norway a mother polar bear plays with her young 4 month old cub while a fulmar flies overhead.  We spent many hours with this female bear and her two cubs.  She was patient, nurturing and a great teacher.  She was also a great hunter as we watched her casually catch two ringed seals on the open sea ice.  With their bellies full of seal meat, they had time to wrestle and play Queen of the castle.  #followme on @paulnicklen to see more polar bears. #polarbear #love #family #climatechangeisreal #baby #instagood #honorparis

Photo by @taylorglenn // Not much shade out here in the desert. This beautiful Oryx (or Gemsbok as it is known in Afrikaans) finds a bit of relief under a scrawny acacia tree in the Namib Rand Nature Reserve. There is very little flora here in the vast Namib desert so these guys take advantage of it when they can. They are found throughout arid regions of Southern Africa and also happen to be the national animal of Namibia. Such gorgeous markings! #namibia #wildlife // Follow me @taylorglenn for more from Namibia
