Photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto | Tanzania. Two Maasai men are talking outside of their village which is located just outside of the Ngorongoro crater. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area  is a protected area and a World Heritage Site located 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. The area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area. The conservation area is administered by the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority, an arm of the Tanzanian government, and its boundaries follow the boundary of the Ngorongoro Division of the Arusha Region.The 2009 Ngorogoro Wildlife Conservation Act placed new restrictions on human settlement and subsidence farming in the Crater, displacing Maasai pastoralists, most of whom had been relocated to Ngorongoro from their ancestral lands to the north when the British colonial government established Serengeti National Park in 1959. The construction of luxury tourist hotels in the Conservation Area allows people to access "the unparalleled beauty of one of the world's most unchanged wildlife sanctuaries", according to a government brochure, even as thousands of Maasai have suffered forcible eviction and have been denied access to water sources for their livestock. The Crater was voted by Seven Natural Wonders  as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa in Arusha, Tanzania in February 2013. #tanzania #ngorongoro #crater #africa #maasai

Photo by @hannahreyesmorales | Golden light covers the steppe in Terelj National Park, Mongolia. I don't think I will ever tire of seeing beautiful sunsets. Photographs are the closest I can get to bottling up how the light makes me feel.

play_circle_filled Video by Matthew Borowick @mborowick | Iceland is said to have over 10,000 waterfalls, which may be an understatement. This is one of the many beautiful waterfalls to be seen. It lives along the Öxi pass in the Eastern Icelandic region, and leads into the fjord of Berufjörður and then ends in the North Atlantic Ocean. #waterfall #iceland #drone #adventure #explore

Photo by @sofia_jaramillo5 | Athlete @nicgreece paramotors over the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. This was a unique morning as rain from the night before flooded the flats and created breathtaking reflections in the water. The flats formed when ancient Lake Bonneville dried up years ago. As water evaporated, salt deposits were left. During the last Ice Age, about 15,000 years ago, Lake Bonneville's size was equivalent to the size of Lake Michigan. It expanded across one-third of present day Utah and into parts of neighboring states.  #fly #utah #saltflats

Photo by Muhammed Muheisen @mmuheisen | Last May I spent time on the world’s only floating animal sanctuary while on assignment for @natgeo in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. De Poezenboot, Dutch for “the catboat” hosts around 50 stray and abandoned cats, 17 of which are permanent residents that have lived on the boat for several years. Day after day, you become part of their environment; you're just another big cat to them.

Photo by @max.lowe | Elephants across the globe have sadly become a species threatened by man-kinds dominance of the natural realms. Poaching of Elephants for their tusks has risen above and beyond many other issues publicized across the globe, yet their numbers continue to decline. This Asian Elephant, pictured in Yala National Park in Sri Lanka, is one of a small population of the Asian Elephant population that still exists in some sense of wild life. To protect and preserve these animals that share our planet and inspire awe in the natural world for people across the globe is on all our shoulders.

Photo by @acacia.johnson | West Greenland's Ilulissat Icefjord is home to the most productive glacier in the Northern Hemisphere, flowing 65-115 feet per day and generating 20 billion tons of icebergs per year. It is believed that the iceberg that sank the Titanic likely originated here! Visitors to Ilulissat can enjoy an extensive network of boardwalks and hiking trails along an ever-changing landscape of ice – listening to the constant rumble of calving icebergs.

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio I “God's Light Show. ”The aurora borealis illuminates Olstind Mountain in Reinefjord, Lofoten archipelago. Arctic Norway. The northern lights must have been as awe inspiring to the first settlers of the Lofoten archipelago 11,000 years ago as they are to any visitor today. It is 120 years since Norwegian Kristian Birkeland, the “father of modern auroral science,” suggested the theory that electrons from sunspots triggered auroras.
