Photo by @amivitale | Manisha and Jasmin Singh stand in an ancient water well in the city of Jaipur in India's Rajasthan Thar desert. This is the bottom of a stepwell that once was full of water. As wells dry, villagers have to travel farther and farther to find water and resources, with the brunt of this task falling on the shoulders of women.

Follow @amivitale for more images exploring the lives of women and the vital roles they play around the world.

Photo by @joelsartore | Genets, like this South African large-spotted genet @cincinnatizoo, are some of the lesser known cat relatives found in Africa. Their slender build and long tail enable them to move swiftly between trees and through thickets. Near the edge of grasslands or woodlands, this species hunts smaller mammals and reptiles including rodents, small primates, and lizards. To learn more about this unique cat follow me @joelsartore

Photo by @andy_mann | During a recent circumnavigation of Svalbard, I awoke around 2 a.m. and stepped outside to check on a mother polar bear and two cubs sleeping a few miles away when we had anchored the boat on sea ice for the night. This is the image that will forever be etched into my memory (along with a tinge of seal breath) as I opened the portside hatch and stepped onto the outer deck of the boat. She reached for me, but I had the luxury of a few inches at my back. Curious but cautious, she hopped down and took her cubs away. I couldn't fall back asleep, needless to say. It's such a privilege and an honor to experience wildlife from this distance and one for which I'm forever grateful. Please follow me @andy_mann for more images of this encounter. #Svalbard #polarbear @sea_legacy

Photo by @laurentballesta | When there is no wind at all, and the sea becomes perfectly flat, if the storm comes, raindrops turn into diamonds when they hit the surface. Viewed from the deep, only one question remains: Does this black-tip shark worry about the falling rain? In 2019, just like the shark: mock the rain. If climate change continues to bring disaster and desolation, and you need hope to make the right life choices, look out, beauty is everywhere, even under a rain shower, and beauty heals.

Photo by Brian Skerry @brianskerry // Sponsored by @NikonUSA // Orcas swim through the waters off Skjervøy in the Norwegian Arctic. These animals come to this region in winter to feed on herring, which aggregate in the fjords. The orcas are increasingly in close proximity to the fishing boats, which are also centered on this region of the Norwegian Sea. As the light fades in early winter, a dance unfolds between the nets, the orcas, and the birds above, hunting for the herring. // Explore the possibilities of the @NikonUSA Z 7 mirrorless camera, bringing legendary optical excellence to both photography and videography.

photo_library Photos by @vincentjmusi |  Sadie. I’m not one to brag, but my first extensively published work came when I was a High School yearbook photographer. It was my first book.

In my junior year, I was sent to a yearbook photographers workshop taught by the photographers who did all the formal yearbook photos for our yearbook.

A cross between long-distance runners and prison guards, these photographers excelled in the art of forcing an average of 1,500 children a day into friendly poses and acceptable smiles before moving on to the next school. 
Sometimes I think if my dog work was actually to become a book, it could be kind of a dog’s version of a High School yearbook. 
Full of inspired friendly dogs with ambitious and heartfelt quotes, they could list their altruistic plans for the future alongside humorous ribbing from their dog classmates.

Sadie, Class of 2018

Future Hounds of America, Honor Roll, Quiz Bowl, Spanish Club.

Although she’s almost 7, Sadie really showed the freshman dogs a thing or two about how to jump around excitedly at the dog park this year.

After missing out on the State Championships, everyone is looking for Sadie to get back into Varsity Ball Chasing after a mid-season injury sidelined her.

She founded the Shelter Dog Club and counts Beagle, Foxhound and Labrador as her primary influences but is very well liked by her purebred classmates.

Sadie enjoys helping others and was voted “Most likely to kiss you without being asked.” #BFF Sadie

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier | The ice surrounding the Îles de la Madeleine is a very special place. Every year, in the heart of winter, thousands of harp seals gather on the ice to give birth to their pups, just like this one. Born with a fluffy white coat, harp seals turn silvery grey within a couple of weeks, as they prepare to enter the cold Arctic waters. Unfortunately, this kind of safe, stable ice platform is becoming scarce as global temperatures continue to rise, presenting a serious threat for the survival of this lovable species. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier for more photos from our Arctic and Antarctic regions. #harpseal #seal #Arctic #Canada #climatechange

Photo by @noralorek | Peter Mandela, a 12-year-old refugee from South Sudan living in Uganda, holds his handmade cardboard truck. In Bidibidi, a remote refugee settlement in Uganda, South Sudanese kids create their own entertainment from mud, paper, and plastic. Here cardboard boxes from shipments of humanitarian supplies get a second chance as toy cars, trucks, and buses. These kids would have been the first generation to grow up in an independent South Sudan, if war hadn’t so quickly dispelled them. Today more than one million children have fled the country, building new lives in refugee camps scattered in Uganda and other neighbors of South Sudan. Even in the most remote places, kids learn how to entertain themselves. With more than 270,000 people, Bidibidi is considered one of the world's largest refugee settlements.

Photo by @lucalocatelliphoto | Battersea Power Station in London has been for decades the symbol of disruptive architecture and harmful coal energy production. Today it is the centerpiece of a mile-long redevelopment along the Thames and will soon be home to offices and residences. Critics say the project is too focused on luxury in a city short on affordable housing, yet it caught my eye for its innovative architectural solutions. Please follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to find out more about the London story I covered for @natgeo #London #architecture #battersea #britain #people #city
