I started getting arrested at 14yrs old. Our new @SevenBucksProds project means a lot to me. We take you inside one of the most hardcore prison boot camps in the world. Their success rate is unprecedented. In 2012 when I walked into this Dade County facility to speak with these offenders about taking advantage of their second shot at life, I knew then this was a place the world needed to see. All lives matter. Break them down hard. Build them up strong. Change is real. Set your calendars for MARCH 27th on @HBO. #HBODocumentariesFilm #SevenBucksProds #RockAndAHardPlace

Video by @joelsartore | An endangered crested capuchin named Milo at the @thelosangeleszoo. Sadly, Milo passed away not long ago after a long illness. He was a 22-year-old male and the leader of his troop of twelve at the Los Angeles Zoo. Milo was also a great father to his eleven offspring. We'll miss you Milo!

Photo by @FransLanting Baring your teeth at someone can be a sign of aggression. But here, Lana, a female bonobo, was doing it to provoke me. Bonobos and humans are so closely related that we share many facial expressions—and an ability to use deception. That is exactly what Lana was doing here. She was feigning aggression to get my attention—evidence of a social sophistication that crosses species boundaries. I spent several days with Lana and other bonobos in a captive family group for a series of intimate portraits to help people understand how unique bonobos are. Follow me @FransLanting for more bonobo portraits. @natgeotravel @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #Attitude #GreatApe #Bonobo #Aggression #Communicationi

Video by @amivitale. I am excited to share this incredible story soon on @natgeo about @r.e.s.c.u.e , the first community owned and run elephant sanctuary located in Northern Kenya. Its express purpose is to find, rehabilitate, and return orphaned wild elephants into the surrounding landscape.  This is not a sanctuary run and managed by outsiders but by the Samburu themselves.  Trained abroad and with the full capabilities of a world class sanctuary, the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is an incredible example of community conservation.  It helps establish pride amongst local people for THEIR elephants and it provides employment and funding for community efforts.  It is estimated that the sanctuary and an adjoining small community lodge will double the income of the 25,000 person community and be used for schools, clinics, and other community projects. Follow @r.e.s.c.u.e, @amivitale and @sararacamp for more information on how to help or visit this magical place. #elephant #elephants #saveelephants #elephantlove #banivory #stoppoaching #worthmorealive #saynotoivory #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #bestdestinations #africanamazing #conservation #animals #safari #wildlife #climatechange #natureisspeaking #savetheplanet #endangeredspecies @nrt_kenya

It's really hard to explain what its like to be this close to the king of beasts. Lions have a presence, a magnificent swagger that exudes superiority. It was quite a humbling feeling, being 10 feet away from this guy–in the safety of my little rental car. Kruger National Park, South Africa, is very accessible, you don't need a 4x4 vehicle, and it's a beautiful 4 to 5 hour drive from Johannesburg.

We laughed and had fun with The Return of Xander which is on its way to make more world wide then both previous ones combined... then last week I recorded vocals for what became a number one song (Charlie Puth is the first one to notice my voice in the background, haha)... and then Kygo dropped a full on duet which he says is Amazing... Just blessed.

Photo by @martinschoeller Martin: “Hi Arlando, good to see you. Have you ever been homeless?” Arlando: “I have been but not recently. I deliver food to homeless shelters, I even went out to San Francisco with a couple of churches to help the homeless out there. It’s kinda like the workin’ poor where you could be homeless but you know somebody, so you’re one stage from it. You know, it’s like when you have family, when you have friends you don’t have to necessarily hit the streets but if they say no, you’d be right there. Circumstances. It’s just you kinda lucked out a little bit better in the lottery, you know what I’m sayin’? The lottery of life. ‘Cause you know in the lottery of life you don’t know who your family will be. The homeless people that I know are just like me and you. It’s no difference. Born to somebody else, they’d be in a different position.” . For more portraits and stories, follow me @martinschoeller

Video by @christian_foto (Christian Rodriguez ) Video at the Texolo waterfall park located in the Municipality of Xico, in Veracruz, Mexico. The main waterfall has an approximate height of 78.7 feet. There is a bridge over the ravine that connects both parts of the forest. On the other side, there are two smaller waterfalls that can be seen from some of the trails in the area. The waterfalls and their surroundings have been used to film several films. Video by @christian_foto / @prime_collective #waterfall #xico #veracurz #mexico

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone with words by @M_Synnott (Mark Synnott) - “Misha, p-l-e-a-s-e l-i-s-t-e-n c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y,” I say, holding up the old frayed rope to which we are tied. “I don’t want to climb any higher. If you won’t go down with me, I will untie and solo to the bottom.” With his brawny arms crossed over his chest, Misha locks me in an icy stare and mutters something in Russian. We’ve been arguing on this tiny ledge for nearly an hour, which, considering we don’t share a common language, is becoming ridiculous. What’s clear is that he adamantly refuses to bail. Earlier in the day, when we surveyed this 1200-foot cliff from the base, I realized there was no way we could safely climb it with the motley assortment of old Russian caving gear we had scrounged up in camp. I said as much to Misha and thought he had agreed, but somehow he has cajoled me halfway up the cliff. Peering down at the hundreds of feet of crumbling limestone we’ve already scaled, it dawns on me that I’m bluffing—and Misha knows it. My only option is to give in and go for the top. Though Misha is a world-class caver (and more stubborn than the donkeys that carried our gear into these mountains), he has little climbing experience. This leaves the dangerous job of leading the upper headwall to me, but I’m here to go caving not climbing, so I don’t even have sticky-soled rock shoes. When we finally top out late in the day—not far from where this photo was taken—Misha just shrugs and gives me a look as if to say, “See, I told you it was no problem.” And that’s how I accidentally made the first ascent of Hodga Gur Gur Ata, in a remote corner of Uzbekistan—on the very first day of our expedition to Dark Star. I haven’t discussed it with Misha, but I was thinking we could call our route Russian Roulette. Over the next few weeks we will upload a series of photographs on the Nat Geo Instagram feed from our recently published magazine story featured inside the March 2017 issue about a team of daring Russian explorers hoping to find the underground Everest - Dark Star (cave) inside the mighty Baisun Tau cliff in southern Uzbekistan. Stay tuned to see more.

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo BIG CAT WEEK starts today Monday Feb 20th! on NG WILD - #bigcatweek I am working on a @natgeo Jaguar story in the Pantanal of Brazil. Here are 2 cubs cooling off and relaxing in a tree. Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “Stop the demand and the killing can too.” @wildaid @bertiegregory My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have-kids hang out and play like these 2 cubs.. Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water. If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them. So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves. Please visit to find out other ways to become involved to save big cats! #follow me @stevewinterphoto to see more images from my work with @natgeo and Thanks!! @stevewinterphoto @natgeo @nglive #nglive @natgeochannel @natgeowild @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #fursforlife #BCI #bigcatsintiative #startwith1thing @projetooncafari @refugioecologicocaiman @pantheracats @pantanalsafaris #canonusa #redcine @africanparksnetwork

Puttin' in that ring work w/ @theatrinidadtmt (our Divas Champion) and @tessa_blanchard (our bad ass ring/stunt double) for their big match tonight at the Staples Center here in LA once RAW goes off the air. For those insiders who know the wrestling business, you know how hard these two independent female wrestlers work. For those who are are new to the wrestling world when you see our movie, just know you're watching some very unique and special athletes achieve greatness in a male dominated world. Respect is given when it's earned. Tonight, they earn it. Get ready WWE Universe and RAW crowd. It's your night too. #FightingWithMyFamily #SquaredCircleDNA #BloodSweatRespect #StaplesCenter #LA #RAW

Last weekend, 17-year-old Hannah Barker (@nxtures) traveled from Essex to Margate, England, to attend Geek 2017 — a three-day gaming festival for all ages. For Hannah, a student and part-time Disney princess, work and play don’t look much different: “The cosplay masquerade was the highlight for me,” she says of the event, which housed retro games, virtual reality and more inside Dreamland, an amusement park that dates back to the 1800s. “I dressed up as Rapunzel. It’s the first costume I ever made myself. I’ve added lights and 1,000 rhinestones to the skirt by hand. Eventually, my dream is to design costumes for Disneyland.” Check out our story to see more of Hannah’s time at Geek 2017.
