Early morning in Danum Valley, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. I have been fortunate enough to have spent a lot of time over the years in the maginificent Bornean rainforest. It is a contagious realm filled with miracles big and small...This forest is estimated to be at least 130 million years old, making it one of the oldest rainforests in the world (and twice as old as the Amazon). Follow me @mattiasklumofficial to meet remakable creatures and see images and films from our projects around the world. Borneo, as I might have said before, is extremely rich in biodiversity and provides habitat for about 15,000 known species of flowering plants, and more than 3,000 tree species, 221 terrestrial mammal species, and 420 bird species. It is essential for mankind to save these remarkable ecosystems to secure global stability and resilience!

@stevewinterphoto | Mom cleaning her cub. The cheetah is the fastest land animal on Earth and Africa’s most endangered cat. Cheetahs purr like house cats, which is one reason they are under threat, as the cubs are either captured or raised in captivity to be sold as pets to the very wealthy, though only one in six survive the journey to their new prison.
As with all big cats, the number one reason for their decline is habitat loss, then comes human-wildlife conflict, where livestock owners kill predators in revenge killings if the predator kills their livestock. Finally comes the illegal wildlife trade; the pet trade is hitting cheetahs hard as is the trade in their skins and bones.
If we can find a way to believe they think, feel, and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. @stevewinterphoto@natge@thephotosociety @africanparksnetwork #ldfoundation @leonardodicapriofdn


Photo by @Paulnicklen | This photograph of the ever mysterious, shy, and elusive narwhal was taken while on assignment for @natgeo. Hundreds of narwhals jockey for position to catch a breath of air during a massive feeding frenzy on polar cod. Since I was a kid growing up in the Canadian Arctic, I have always been fascinated by these true unicorns of the sea. It took eight years of going back year after year to the far Canadian Arctic to finally realize this moment. This image, along with 178 others, appears in my new massive fine-art book called "Born To Ice." I can’t wait to share this journey through light, time, and ice with you. #followme on @paulnicklen to learn more about my love affair with the polar regions. #gratitude #narwhal #love #beauty #instagood #fineartwithpurpose

Greetings earthlings. This is 7-year-old kid astronaut and first-grader Harrison Sheldon. 🚀He’s the star of @smallstepsaregiantleaps, a photo project that his dad, editorial photographer and nonprofit media consultant Aaron Sheldon, started when Harrison was 4 years old.
Instagram: Aaron, is there a game attached to the project?
Aaron: When we decide to visit a place for the project, we talk about what we might see there. During our visit, I have Harry compare what we thought we might see with the actual experience. My favorite part of each shoot is hearing his thoughts about the places and what he liked about each place as we look at the pictures together over a post-mission doughnut, cookie or ice-cream cone.
IG: Astronaut Harrison, what’s the best part of being an astronaut?
Harrison: Exploring places, meeting astronauts, bouncing on hotel beds, having cool exploring gear and snacks.
IG: Astronaut Harrison, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Harrison: Superhero.
Aaron: What if your plan to create your own superpowers doesn’t work out? What would you be if you can’t be a superhero?
Harrison: Police officer and construction worker in space.
Check out today’s story to explore along with Harrison and Aaron on some of their adventures.
