Photo by @krystlejwright // As a storm system from the south chased us north along the Antarctic Peninsula, we were greeted with spectacular evenings. Easily a paradise for any photographer when dramatic light aligns with an equally magical landscape #Antarctica @natgeoexpeditions

Photo by @BrianSkerry | Three sperm whales socialize in the waters off of Dominica in the eastern Caribbean. The whale on the bottom is a calf is named Digit, and she became entangled in fishing gear in 2015. It was looking like a death sentence for the young whale, but surprisingly in 2018 Digit was completely
free! These whales have been studied for 15 years by Shane Gero, founder of the the Dominica Sperm Whale Project. In a story on the @natgeo website @craigwelch writes about Shane’s work with these animals, their families, and this special story. This population of whales is on a six percent annual decline due to anthropogenic stresses, such as entanglement in fishing gear and ship strikes. If they die off, we would lose a whale culture that possesses unique knowledge about its home waters.

Fragility of Ecosystem | Photograph by Julia Wimmerin (@juliawimmerlin)
.
“Everything we see in this photo from Anilao, Philippines is very fragile and can soon disappear. Dying corals, fish full of plastic coming all the way from plankton and going all the way up the food chain,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Julia Wimmerlin. “Polluted water and air... The more we hear it and say it, the more likely it is that this will change. And generations later, people can still take photos of this incredible beauty.” This photo was selected for the “Celebrating the Planet” story. Go to the link in our profile to submit to our current assignments (“For National Geographic’s Photo of the Day” and “Climate Action in Your Community”) and for your chance to be featured on @natgeoyourshot.

“Losing an ecosystem like this can be truly heartbreaking. You start to wonder when will we ever wake up and realize the damage that is being done. I love how the coral is set in the bottom foreground of this image as the fish move above in a pattern. Excellent work with this angle as I'm sure this was a tough underwater image to capture.” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)

Hello, world! Today’s #WeeklyFluff is Coco, a Congo African grey parrot who’s feeling particularly co-dependent after Valentine’s Day. “She will follow me all around,” says Coco’s human Jackie Persaud (@mss_jackie_j). “Once she loses [sight of] me, she will scream like a toddler and ask, ‘Where you? Where you? Where you?’”
Deep down, Coco just wants your undivided attention.

We come full circle to where we began our Brazil adventure: Rio de Janeiro. .

The view is from atop Corcovado mountain, just below the 30m/98ft Art Deco statue of Cristo Redentor (“Christ the Redeemer”). We took the rack railway tram up 2200 feet, through the Tijuca Forest National Park for one of Rio’s best views. (Another is from Sugarloaf mountain, seen in the distance here.) .

Rio is the final stop of our @gadventures Wonders of Brazil Tour (full itinerary link in bio). This visit, we took a couple more days to fill up on Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, street art in Santa Teresa, a walking tour including Lapa and the downtown, more than a few visits to sushi bars, live music, nibbling and noshing on acai, gelato, selgados, and moqueca (fish stew), and a bit of caipirinha sampling. .

Sure, we know there’s more to Rio, but we ran out of time. What did we miss? Feel free to suggest…we’ll take it up on our next visit!
