Photo by @randyolson // #Sponsored by @StellaArtois // The largest desert lake in the world is Lake Turkana in Africa—a beautiful and vital place to fish since the region is scarce on protein. Surrounded by lava rocks, the air temperature feels like being inside a microwave oven. After the Ethiopian Gibe III dam on the Omo River goes online, the scorched region will have little water. I wonder where the people who call this place their home will live after the dam is completed and their lake dries up. Will they be the next wave of African refugees? // Water is a fundamental human need, yet 663 million people around the world today live without access to safe water.

Water is essential to the region for growing food, for people’s livelihoods, and for their way of life. Although traditional forms of irrigation such as spray irrigation are still used, the region has been working diligently to update its irrigation methods to conserve and use water more responsibly.

#YourShotPhotographer Chloé Serignac captured a timeless, tender moment between her twin sister and grandmother. This image resonated with me personally because my grandmother was my first best friend, and I was her namesake. Photography has the ability to freeze moments, and people, in time. I’m so thankful for the images that I have of my own grandmother because she taught me how to stand my ground, how to laugh until I cry and when I was a kid and had no idea how much I would love photography, she let me take her picture. Women’s History Month isn’t just about remembering and celebrating the women in our own lives, but we simply wouldn’t be who we are without them. That’s something worth celebrating.
The images I chose to feature this month celebrate female-identifying Your Shot photographers telling a visual story of empowerment, the freedom and flexibility of womanhood, photographers and their images #BreakingBarriers whether it’s identifying women’s issues in their images or a beautiful landscape or underwater image. — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

March is #WomensHistoryMonth and to honor the women in our community and around the globe, @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas curated 31 Your Shot images that celebrates women to be featured each day this month. #natgeowomen

It can take five flights, a helicopter and a dog sled team to get to some settlements in Greenland. But the long journey is always worth it for Slovenian photojournalist Ciril Jazbec (@ciriljazbec), who documents the climate-related changes taking place on this island of ice. “Greenland’s entire surface has started to melt,” says Ciril. “The speed of glaciers melting has increased dramatically. Only five or 10 years ago, it was a whole different story. Greenlanders used to have very strong hunting communities, but because of climate change there is no longer enough ice.”
Despite the reality of documenting these changes, Ciril seeks to capture the humanity. “How do you show the human face of climate change?” he asks. “How do you show what it’s like for these communities that are living in low-lying places and islands? I’m trying to somehow build a bridge between these issues and the viewers. Our planet is very fragile. It’s important to keep going back to Greenland and sharing with the world what is going on, so they know that we can’t take everything for granted.”
See Greenland through Ciril’s lens on our story today.

Sudan, the last male white rhino on Earth, passed away yesterday at his home in Kenya. Photographer @amivitale was there after covering Sudan for many years. Vitale - "With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. Yesterday, Zachariah Mutai comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF. Support this important work:"
