Today, New Caledonia has announced the creation of four fully-protected marine reserves, safeguarding 28,000 square kilometers of pristine coral reefs and surrounding waters. In these lush coral reefs around the remote islands and atolls of the Coral Sea, the fish have seen few divers, and it’s the sharks - blacktips, whitetips, silvertips, gray reefs, nurse sharks, and others - that preside over the reefs, alongside numerous green turtles that nest in the protected Entrecasteaux islands. Thank you New Caledonia for this gift to the planet.
Take a look at our @natgeopristineseas expedition in collaboration with @waittfoundation, which in 2013 conducted some of the first filming and scientific surveys of these remote reefs, informing their protection, on @enricsala profile.

Top Shot: The Love of Big Mama | Photograph by Girish Londhe
.
#YourShotPhotographer Girish Londhe captured this tender moment between a mother giraffe and her calf in Maasai Mara. Your Shot Producer David Y. Lee writes, “Beautiful and tender moment that you documented here Girish. I love it. Great job using the 600mm lens, the long glass compresses your frame and shooting at f/4 helps make the foreground and background out of focus, allowing for my attention to focus on the two giraffes and their love for one another. Well done.” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on August 13, 2018.

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Cloud Gate is a sculpture created by Anish Kapoor in downtown Chicago’s Millenium Park that invites interaction. It has been nicknamed “The Bean” and reflects both the city and the viewers, bending, stretching and distorting everything into wild shapes (see the second image). For photographers this sculpture is exhilarating as it has endless photographic opportunities. #chicago #cloudgate #thebean
