Photo by @amivitale. ‪The passing of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, was really hard on all of his keepers. They’d fallen in love with him. They say they wake up in the morning and see the rhinos often before they see their own children. They say, ‘These are our babies.’‬ These keepers are the real heroes, the men and women protecting all of these species. They are the ones, often with very little, making huge impacts in their communities and the planet. We can often forget that the best protectors of these landscapes are the local communities themselves. Their efforts to preserve community cohesion is ultimately the best immunization against forces that threaten both their wildlife and way of life.

Photo by @FransLanting Basking in the sun with wings spread like miniature solar panels, Monarch butterflies cover a pine tree in the mountains of Mexico where they overwinter. How these travellers find their way to that one place in Michoacan that has the right conditions they need remains a mystery. When I first went there to document them I was astonished by the sights of many millions of Monarchs turning an entire forest orange, but their numbers have since plummeted by 90%. Check @FransLanting to see images of the epic phenomenon that I was able to capture then. @ChristineEckstrom @ThePhotoSociety @XercesSociety #Butterfly #Monarch #Endangered #CenterforBiodiv #Monarch_Watch #Migration

The Continuation of Family | Photograph by Bob K.
“As I age, my focus changes on what is and is not truly important,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Bob K. “This photo is of my daughter and first grandchild. The birth of my grandson has given renewed meaning to my life. The continuation of family has brought me happiness beyond measure. This is the future.”

“Beautiful, intimate moment. Gentle light on the baby and your face adds to the quietness of the scene." — Documentary photographer Kholood Eid (@kholoodeid)

Bring us along as you travel for this Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPawaywego. Whether you’re going to a faraway place or your own backyard, an adventure awaits.
Take us on a ride. The journey can be the most exciting part of a trip. Capture what’s happening through the window on your road trip, or from your bicycle seat as you pedal through your neighborhood.
Capture the sense of place. It’s often the details that make a location unique, such as perfect ripples on a pond or the long shadows of people walking by in a train station. Think about the special details you’d want to share with friends.
Invite your people to come along. Traveling with family or friends can make an experience totally different than when you fly solo. Show us their personalities (and yours!) with candid selfies and in-the-moment photos and videos.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPawaywego hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.


leave the light on for me 💡 (ps, going across the brooklyn bridge in the snow is a terrible idea, the new planks are as slick as ice and it’s pretty much guaranteed that you will fall down in an embarrassing and awkward manor)
