Photo by @EnricSala | Gray reef sharks patrol a reef full of healthy corals at Millennium Atoll in the southern Line Islands. This is what reefs may have looked like a thousand years ago, and what they could look like in the future if our ocean's wildernesses are successfully protected. Today I was in Davos @WorldEconomicForum talking about the urgent need to take action and protect our ocean with @AlGore, @Benioff, @MichelleBacheletPDTA, and @NinaJensen. Together, we can— and should—protect 30 percent of the planet by 2030. #CampaignForNature


Dunes to Mountains | Photograph by Korey Shumway (@ksway_26)
“Great Sand Dunes National Park [in Colorado] is a world of its own. This beautiful place is home to the tallest sand dunes in North America,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Korey Shumway. “The highest is 750 feet above the valley floor. The most interesting part about this place is the natural contrast. You can go from sand dunes to 14,000 feet rocky peaks. It is something you have to see in real life to truly appreciate.” This photo was submitted to our “Celebrating the Planet” assignment.

“This is so beautiful Korey — thanks for the detailed caption explaining where in the world this photo was taken, as well as the information about what makes it so special. I love how wide you shot this scene, revealing how gorgeous this location is. I also love that you included a person, which offers a sense of scale. I love the line in your caption: ‘It's something you have to see in real life to truly appreciate.’ I bet this was a really special experience. Well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y.

Photo by @kengeiger | It's hard to discribe the pre-dawn silence, the quite of the African bush. It's nature, you can hear it every baboon call and bird chirp. The only modernity heard is usually a safari truck. Until a ballon floats overhead, and the roar of its emense flame insinererates all serinity. A sunrise balloon tour of the Maasai Mara National reserve savanna must be stunning, but I hope for the sake of the folks in the gondola, that they issue ear plugs.

California dreaming - stoked to hit the road again for my first trip of the new year 🚘🗺🏔🌵


Hitting our stride in Malta, on the island of Gozo. A couple observations and pieces of advice related to this photo, taken earlier on New Year's Eve. .

We had never thought of Malta as a hiking destination. However, when the weather turned out to be sunny & warm we decided to explore the islands through walking as much of them as we could. Great decision. Our hikes were some of the highlights of our trip. .

Pictured here is a 12-13 km hike from just outside the port city of Mgarr along the coast to the town of Xlendi on the island of Gozo. Paths are pretty clearly marked and the cliffs, medieval watch towers and varying textures of landscapes made it a great way to take in the island. (Note: we did this as a day trip from Valletta, which made for a longish day. But, certainly doable.) .

Also recommended is a main island (Malta) hike, including a circuit from the Blue Grotto to Dingli Cliffs, and then continuing to the city of Mdina where we were able to rest our feet with a glass of wine looking out over the valley. This route totals about 20 km, but if you want a shorter version take the public bus from Dingli to Mdina. .

We’re big fans of shoulder and off-season travel, and we highly recommend visiting Malta during these times. There was light traffic in the cities and main sites, as well as on public transport around the islands. And, you’re likely to get some clear days that aren’t too hot and are just begging for a walk or hike. .

If you’ve been to Malta or Gozo what other advice do you have? .
