Photo of @bertiegregory by @spono. Behind the scenes on a new series for National Geographic at St Andrews Bay, South Georgia Island. This bay has got to be one of the most incredible places on the planet. Argued to be the busiest beach in the world, it’s home to over 400,000 king penguins. It’s hard to believe that in 1925, just 1,100 kings were counted here. This is what happens when environmental conditions are right and you protect a place. Hats off to the South Georgia Government and all the awesome NGOs that have contributed to this success story. After we sat down quietly at the edge of the colony, these curious brown chicks came over for a closer look at the camera! Follow @bertiegregory and @spono for more wildlife adventures.

Channelling Wes Anderson somewhere on the Furka Pass in southern Switzerland... The Hotel Belvédère, once an idyllic spot for travellers wanting to explore the nearby Rhône Glacier. The 11,000 year old glacier is receding at a rate of approximately 130 feet a year, and as the glacier melts away from the pass, fewer people visit. The hotel is now closed indefinitely. Passers-by still stop to take pictures of the building and its mountainous backdrop, yet the building now stands with its doors and windows boarded-up, a testament to the passage of time and the impact of climate change.

SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs thinks five years is five too many. Jake and Jill went up the hill...looking for their forever home! These two cuties are a bonded brother and sister pair who have been at the shelter for the last 5 years. Yes, you read that right: FIVE years at the shelter. They are both friendly with other dogs and gentle with children. They both love human attention, head scratches and belly rubs! The only reason they haven't been adopted in so long is due to so many dogs needing homes. Jake and Jill are inseparable and looking for their one special-someone who understands the connection that some animals have with each other and will adopt them both together.

@bornfreepetshelter wrote, "Jill and Jake are medium sized dogs who were adopted out from our shelter as puppies. However, after 5 years their owner became ill and was no longer able to keep them. And they were returned them to our shelter. Jake and Jill have been in the shelter another 5 years. They are now 10 years old. Jake is 39 pounds and Jill is 49 pounds. They are not very big, just chubby.

Jake and Jill haven't received any interest at all. It's very sad to hear, they are so sweet and loving. It's really hard for us to find people who want to adopt older dogs. They are both are even-tempered, friendly, laid back and sweet dogs. Jill is the outgoing one of the two, Jake is more calm but also very sweet. They are both very good with other dogs and kids. These two are such a great pair. They are super well mannered and well behaved that you will be happy to have them around. They are brother/sister and it would be great if they were adopted together.
Jill needs to lose a lot of weight and once she does she will be able to walk better. Other than that, Jake and Jill are both healthy." To adopt Jake and Jill, please email bornfreepetshelter@gmail.com to apply!

Snow on Lake Bled, Slovenia, makes the scene look like something out of a fairy tale. A functioning church stands on the small island in the middle of the lake, as it has since the late 17th century.

I was briefly in Paris this past week and have had this city on my mind ever since, really need to get back here ASAP. What’s a place that always inspires you?⁣


For David Beckham (@davidbeckham), the joys of fatherhood are the simple things: getting up with his kids in the morning, walking them to school, playing football in the park. “I’m so proud of each of my four children,” says David, whose eldest son Brooklyn (@brooklynbeckham) was born when David was 23. “Each with their own personality from such an early age, they are incredible individuals in their own right.”
David’s top advice for new parents is to be present. “It is the greatest gift you can give your children,” he says. “For me, and many of the mums and dads I’ve spoken to about parenting over the years, it comes down to two things: love and fear. It’s these emotions that push us to achieve more for our children every day. My work with UNICEF (@unicef) reminds me that parents all over the world experience these same emotions, no matter on their circumstance.”
Sunday marks #FathersDay in many countries around the world. Tune in to our story now, because David and Brooklyn are at home helping us celebrate.
