This province is teeming with life and biodiversity, from the tops of the trees all the way down to the reefs. It is home to more than 1,800 species of fish, three quarters of the world’s hard coral species, the world’s largest mangrove forest, and the world’s second-largest rainforest, much of which is completely unexplored. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier and see my latest post to find out how you can help to protect this area. #ProtectWestPapua #biodiversity #conservation #family

@Shannon__Wild A Giant Malagasy Chameleon crosses in front of the iconic Avenue of Baobabs in Madagascar. Nearly half of all chameleon species today live in Madagascar. Madagascar's long isolation from the neighbouring continents has resulted in a unique mix of plants and animals, many found nowhere else in the world. This has led some ecologists to refer to Madagascar as the "eighth continent.

Follow me @Shannon__Wild for more images of wildlife from around the world where I also share my camera settings for budding photographers.

“An aerial view of New Hampshire’s Kancamagus Highway after a rainy day with peak fall foliage,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Manish Mamtani. “I wait for the fall season all year. Sometimes there are bright colors and sometimes it is a dud due to weather. This year I saw some really beautiful colors in New England before it dried out due to the fluctuations in weather and a lot of rain and wind.”

“I love #YourShotPhotographer Stephanie Thomson’s comment: ‘The leading line of the road straight into the fog is stunning. I love how the vibrant colors seem to end at the fog as well; it’s as if I’m being taken into the unknown. Beautiful work Manish!” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

A helping hand makes all the difference in this #WHPcommunity submission from 19-year-old Soumesh Pandey (@camerawalebhaiya). “The essence of power within the frame encouraged me to take the shot,” he explains. “It depicts how in every bad situation you can fight back if you get help from your surroundings.”

Photo by @BrianSkerry | A tiger shark pup, about four days old, swims just below the surface in Hawaii. These animals are considered the most dangerous shark species in tropical waters. Researchers are now learning about behaviors that until recently remained a mystery. Despite being large predators, life in the ocean is difficult, and they face many challenges to survive. As with all species, the tiger shark faces declining populations worldwide as the demand for shark fins continues.
