Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // A mother and daughter spend their morning fishing in a dugout canoe off the coast of West Papua. 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

“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)


Sunset Flight | Photograph by Phillip Chang “This picture was taken from a helicopter over northern Tanzania’s Lake Natron,” writes Phillip Chang. “A flock of flamingos were flying over the lake against the last rays of the sun. Reflections of the blue sky and golden cloud made the lake the perfect background for the pink birds.”

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.”

Video by Michaela Skovranova @mishkusk | A young Green Turtle is enjoying a jellyfish meal off the East Coast of Australia.
Juvenile green turtles are omnivores and will happily feed on almost anything, jellyfish included. As they grow older their diet tends to shift towards consuming seagrass and algae. Because sea turtles are reptiles, they are much less likely to suffer from the adverse effects of the jellyfish stinging cells. Unfortunately for turtles, it is often hard to distinguish a piece of floating plastic from a jellyfish. Research has shown that a turtle has a 22% chance of dying if it eats just one piece of plastic. Us humans have excellent opportunity to help - we can opt for plastic-free alternatives, shop consciously or even collect a few pieces of debris on our walk home. Drains and rivers lead to the ocean, therefore, no matter where in the world you are every little bit counts.
