🎥 @filipe_deandrade | Sea Turtle hatchlings have to be one of the most charismatic wildlife ambassadors on our planet. Despite their off the charts cuteness, no life passes are awarded to them. Natural predators (like magnificent frigatebirds shown here) pose immediate threats to them. But that doesn’t compare to the damage done by invasive predators, human waste and changing climates. Six out of seven species are now labeled as threatened or endangered. This sucks because they are incredibly important. Sea turtles benefit coral reefs and sea grass beds and when females nest, they transfer nutrients and energy from the ocean to the beach. Simply said, oceans need sea turtles. And since we need our oceans, we need sea turtles. Want to help? Reduce your use of plastics and keep our oceans and beaches clean. Love y’all wildlife warriors. - ALSO- I have received a lot of messages about this video and just want to address them here. It is my job as a natural history filmmaker to document wildlife behaviors and share them. I love my job, but it is not easy. One of the hardest things about it is not interfering with nature. Even though I feel terrible for the turtle, the birds have to eat and feed their young. Its not cruel, its nature. And it makes me hopeful to see all the people on here that care about turtles. That is why I offered a few suggestions on how to protect them.

📸 by @filipe_deandrade | Cheetah cub in South Africa. Doesn’t this little guy remind you of a lead singer in a 70’s rock band? Mascara running, baby faced and the presence of an icon. While on assignment with Nat Geo in Africa, I had a personal mission to document as many different wild cat species as I could. Cheetahs were obviously high on that list. They are the worlds fastest land animals topping out at over 60mph and can get there in just 3 seconds...that’s ghost. A mother cheetah may give birth to 3-5 cubs and within 6 months those cubs could reach full size. Despite all the advantages that cheetahs seemingly possess, they are struggling in the wild. Cub mortality is around 90% in some locations and they are listed as vulnerable with their numbers declining. However, if you Love wild cats as much as I do, there is something you can do to help. Check out natgeo.org/bigcats to get involved with our mission to protect these iconic animals. Love y’all wildlife warriors. #bigcatsinitiative #causeanuproar #africa #bigcats #cats #catsofinstagram

Avalanche Rescue | Photograph by Dalia Fichmann (@creativeartview)

Your Shot (@natgeoyourshot) photographer Dalia Fichmann captured this image of an avalanche rescue dog running an exercise looking for survivors. More than 2000 persons have been caught and buried in avalanches only in Switzerland in recent years. Rescue dogs provide valuable services in finding buried humans. Training these dogs is time consuming and a lot of endurance is required for both the dog and his handler. Fichmann accompanied the avalanche rescue dog team under the leadership of Nicole Dammann a full day during their training session in Melchsee Frutt.

Video by @bobpoolefilms | Young male lions live a dangerous life. They have to be extremely careful not to draw too much attention from the adult pride males. Eventually young males move away, team up with other males and move from one pride’s territory to the next, keeping a very low profile. As a coalition of young males, they search for a territory and females they can start a pride with. There is strength in numbers, but it can take years for them grow big and experienced enough fighters to take over another pride's territory and steal their females.

Having Fun | Photograph by Juan C. Torres

“I took this shot of my "Lindo" while my wife was driving,” writes Your Shot (@natgeoyourtshot) photographer Juan C. Torres. “He was having so much fun that it was nearly impossible not to shoot some photos. We rescued him from the streets when he was just a little puppy and has been since part of our family. He is a very active and energetic dog, so I think this photo really captures his true personality.”
