Photo @ladzinski / Photos like this aren’t easy to look at, in fact, they’re completely heartbreaking. However, the hope is that they ultimately encourage change and better understanding. This is a juvenile #gentoo #penguin, soaking wet from rain and bearing an injury. As the Antarctica peninsula continues to warm, precipitation is slowly changing from snow to rain, with many new consequences. There has been a vast increase in young penguins and other birds freezing to death, due to these newly wet conditions in this cold environment. Studies have also shown that penguin populations are decreasing due to habitat loss and fish stock depletion. Further, rain is also exasperating the ice melt, excelerating an already bad situation. It’s critically important that we pay attention to these signs and make changes, climate change is real and we are contributing to it. It’s extremely important to secure habitat and fishing stocks, notably Krill, a shrimp that nearly every mammal here relies on. Krill feed on sea ice, a habitat of bacteria, algae and crustaceans. If krill is over fished each and every animal that relies on it, like numerous species of whale, seal and penguin, will have nothing left to eat. Now, more than ever, we look to the leadership of #CCAMLR, the council responsible for managing the marine living resources in the waters surrounding Antarctica, to make the right decisions on how Antarcticas oceans are fished responsibly.

Top Shot: A Stoic Portrait | Photograph by Crystal Alba (@crystalalbaphoto)
.
While photographing at Project Chimps sanctuary in Georgia, #YourShotPhotographer Crystal Alba captured this portrait of Stirlene. “He is an adolescent male chimp, who was grooming a minor scrape on his finger,” writes Alba. “He’s very stoic and independent. Chimps frequently groom each other, and several of his group mates offered to groom his finger for him, but he insisted on handling it himself.” Project Chimps (@projectchimps) mission is to provide lifelong exemplary care to chimpanzees retired from research.

Photo by @jonathan_irish / Keep calm and waddle on. I’m t-minus eight days from heading back to the Great White Continent (Antarctica) and it is safe to say that I’m starting to get ice fever. I love the polar regions and can’t get enough of their extreme beauty. Here’s a fun shot of adelie penguins walking along their penguin highway (from the breeding grounds to the water’s edge). One of my favorite things to do while exploring on land in Antarctica is to sit somewhere close to these highways and capture their endless procession back and forth. Follow me @jonathan_irish for more images like this and around the world.

如果能身在此刻,是否別無所求?
- “If there is a point to being in the canyon, it is not to rush but to linger, suspended in a blue-and-amber haze of in-between-ness, for as long as one possibly can. To float, to drift, savoring the pulse of the river on its odyssey through the canyon, and above all, to postpone the unwelcome and distinctly unpleasant moment when one is forced to reemerge and reenter the world beyond the rim-that is the paramount goal.” —Kevin Fedarko from his book on the Grand Canyon: “The Emerald Mile.” We certainly experienced this description during our 19-day expedition down the Colorado River to explore the Grand Canyon for new rock climbing potential.

Hello, world! It’s time for a very snuggly session of #WeeklyFluff, brought to you by Riley (left) and Killer (right) (@morileymoproblems). This dynamic duo of adopted doggies hails from sunny Los Angeles. “Riley follows Killer around. They play, they nap — it’s the cutest and most amazing thing I’ve ever seen,” says their human Alicia. “Killer retained the alpha role as Riley got bigger and still maintains that title to this day.”
Follow @morileymoproblems to make sure you never miss a moment from these two. 🐾
