Sharing this amazing photo by my good friend and fellow @natgeo photographer @amivitale. She is offering an incredible opportunity to bring panda joy into the lives of your friends and family this holiday season. For just $125 plus shipping, you will receive a signed 7.5x7.5 inch fine art print of Yeye in the Mist AND an autographed copy of her first book Panda Love: The Secret Lives of Pandas. All print profits are donated to the people and organizations caring for the environment. I just purchased this for one of my best friends, she just doesn’t yet know it is coming!
Panda Love is a collection of images of these gentle giants on location in China. It captures the inspiring efforts to breed pandas and release them back into the wild. Fluffy panda cubs tumble out of baskets and play hide-and-seek with their carers, while the adult pandas curiously explore the forest and climb trees. China may be on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador, and "Panda Love" documents the process of putting the wild back into an icon.
If you're interested in a larger print of Yeye in the Mist, it’s also available at 11x16 inches for $425, 16x24 inches for $600 and 20x30 inches for $850. Until Dec. 31st, every Yeye print will come with your very own signed copy of Panda Love.

Children and teenagers are leading the movement to #endchildmarriage worldwide. This International #childrensday, meet Sarah Abdelmohsen, communication officer and former youth advocate for the #AfricanUnion from #Egypt. “The youth need to be empowered economically. Girls should get good healthcare and should have access to reproduction health [information] and access to education.” This image is part of a portrait series supported by The David and Lucile Packard Foundation on #champions leading to #endchildmarriage in #Africa. All images made at the first-ever African Girls’ Summit on Ending Child Marriage, held in Lusaka, Zambia in 2015. The meeting aimed to facilitate the exchange of good practices and challenges in ending child marriage, and to secure and renew commitments from African stakeholders. @tooyoungtowed#canonexploreroflight#canoncpsusa@canonusa#girls#tooyougtowed#letgirlslearn
A young woman dries her hair after bathing at the Rescue Foundation's Mumbai home. Although illegal under Indian law, human trafficking remains a significant problem. According to @apneaap, a nonprofit which works to end sex-trafficking by preventing inter-generational prostitution in India, there are currently 16 million victims of sex trafficking in the country. India’s Lok Sabha passed the Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill earlier this year, criminalizing and penalizing trafficking for exploitative sex, forced and bonded labor, begging, surrogacy and forced marriages. However, UN human rights experts say is must be revised with victim-centerd approach rather than criminalizing survivors, potentially further harming already vulnerable individuals. @canonusa#women#girls#trafficking#survivor#beauty#color#hope#change#canoncpsusa#canonexploreroflight
Baby Seibureh, 17, and Claude Seibureh, 48, of Freetown, were married during the Ebola crisis. Because of her small stature, Baby needed a cesarean section to safely give birth to their son, Joseph. While child marriage is a critical issue in both crisis and stable contexts, the rates of girls married underage is rising at alarming rates in humanitarian settings according to Girls Not Brides. •
Today is the 7th annual International Day of the Girl Child. In honor of this important day, I collaborated with my friend, fellow photojournalist and AP photo editor @mayaalleruzzo MayaAlleruzzo on a story she published titled, “AP PHOTOS: Growing up Female Across the Globe.” Poverty, violence, and cultural traditions oppress millions of girls in every part of the world. It is still a global struggle to have girls valued for more than their bodies — for just their sexuality, fertility and labor. Today we come together to help galvanize support and inspire the international community to do its part to establish, expand and protect girls’ rights so girls are free to determine the course of their own lives. It’s also a time to celebrate girls in every way, which is long overdue.

#sponsored by @OneSight // Newly bespectacled Gerlane, 14, is filled with joy as she travels by boat with her family back to her home in the Brazilian Amazon. Just weeks before, Gerlane lost her only pair of glasses down a well and was in a panic. Her father, a farmer, tried to fish the glasses out—to no avail; he later wept recalling the effort. This left Gerlane unable to do many things she loved, including reading to her sister at bedtime. Fortunately, her family heard about a mobile eye care clinic coming to a nearby village—an opportunity for a free eye exam and glasses—and made arrangements to travel there, an hour by boat. • I was thrilled to join @OneSight, an independent nonprofit, as they hosted their first-ever, fully digital, eye clinic in the Amazon. More than 2,000 patients traveled to the clinic during a five-day boat expedition to bring better vision to a remote and underserved area. • Today, on World Sight Day, I share this story in celebration of those who work to bring global attention to blindness and vision impairment and provide for those who lack access to vision care. // @OneSight found a way to reach them and provide more than clear sight. Watch for today’s story @natgeo and check out the link in my bio to learn more.
