Photos by Kirsten Luce @kirstenluce | A polar bear performs with trainer Yulia Denisenko in Kazan, Russia. This is a rare example of performing polar bears. The four bears are fitted with metal muzzles and their trainer holds a metal rod. Though controversial, it is not illegal in Russia for these bears to perform. Polar bears are a threatened species and a powerful symbol for conservation.
For the June 2019 issue of National Geographic, writer @natashaldaly and I traveled the world to learn about wildlife tourism and the suffering that goes on behind the scenes. Our intention is not to shame tourists who have had these encounters but to arm our readers with information that will help them identify potentially abusive situations for animals.

To learn more, read our story at natgeo.com/wildlifetourism and follow @world_animal_protection which works to raise awareness and help animals in the tourism industry.

Spice markets make for a brilliant mini-adventure exploration no matter where you travel. India is no exception — spice browsing and shopping here never disappoints. .

Wandering, questioning, exercising curiosity, perhaps adding something familiar and needed, or unfamiliar and unknown to one’s spice rack back home. For as many times as we’ve been to India, we always discover something new or encounter something unusual. And, we always meet someone interesting.⠀

.⠀

The spread of stalls across Shimla’s lower bazaar features sacks and tins, and ancient wooden racks, drawers and dividers that ought to have a voice so that they might tell us their stories. Colors are earthy and bright, chili peppers of the deepest red, turmeric otherworldly yellow. Scents waft among it all. The whole and the ground; the sweet and the pungent; the blended and the masala’d — all of which makes Indian food so delicious and complex.⠀

Rear View of Hong Kong | Photograph by Wai Ping Wong (@snakewwww)
.
#YourShotPhotographer Wai Ping Wong caught this moment as a man walks through a staircase in Hong Kong. This photo was selected for the May 17, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

“[This] photograph of a solitary figure ascending the stairs of Hong Kong building made me stop. It’s a man, or a boy, caught mid-journey in a stairwell’s light. Has he many more flights to go? Is he as alone as he appears, in one the world’s most bustling cities? I wanted to know more, and decided this qualified as a photo that moved me.” — National Geographic Partners Editorial Director and @natgeo Magazine Editor in Chief Susan Goldberg (@susanbgoldberg)
