Video by Ronan Donovan @ronan_donovan // What do you think of wild wolves? Should they be allowed to roam freely, as they have for millennia, or should they be allowed only in those far reaching wilderness areas where humans rarely venture? If you’re curious about wolves and wilderness, I’d like to share with you a new three-part special event premiering this Sunday, August 25, from 8-11pm ET, on Nat Geo WILD. Come join me as I travel to the High Arctic, to a landscape uninhabited by humans, in pursuit of the legendary white wolf. These wolves have never been hunted, they are fearless and free, offering a chance to learn more about this mysterious social predator.

@stevekovacevich You seem to have a superiority issue whether wolves should die and become extinct or displace them in remote parts of the wilderness. A very colonial view on nature. One can question the entire animal kingdom Ronan, why just wolves?

Photo by @daisygilardini | Magellanic penguins from South America are closely related to the African,  the Humboldt and the Galapagos penguins. The all four species are in fact known as banded penguins and also jackass penguins. This funny name come from the fact that all of them make a sound similar to a donkey’s call.

Leon, a young 3 year-old lion peers out from the branches of an African caper bush. With few large trees available in their territory, lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda will look for shade anywhere they can, including bushes with spiny branches or even thick euphorbia (cactus-like) trees. With temperatures regularly exceeding 95 degrees in this equatorial savanna, anyone can feel for the lions 🦁 follow @alexbraczkowski for more shots and facts about big cats around the world

Photos by @CristinaMittermeier // When I was diving in the Galapagos, surrounded by a healthy ecosystem full of sharks, sea turtles and fish, I couldn’t help but feel disheartened by the fact that we humans kill more than 11,000 sharks every single hour. As awful as that number is, the good news is that if we act together, we have the power to #protectsharks. Learn how you can get involved and take action for sharks today by following @CristinaMittermeier and @SeaLegacy.  #worthmorealive #sharks #oceanlover

Video @filipe_deandrade // Sea Turtle nesting season is picking up in Costa Rica. On around 10 beaches world wide, Sea Turtles come together by the tens of thousands in a synchronized nesting event known as the Arribada. Costa Rica is home to two of those beaches. The world is a better place with Sea Turtles in our oceans. You can help them by cutting down on single use plastics and not using white lights on nesting beaches. Spread the word wildlife warriors.

@sandesh_kadur & @robin_darius capture an intimate shot of the widest ranging canid in the world - the Red Fox 🦊. This incredible animal is also one of the most widely distributed Carnivore in the world. It’s also the largest amongst the True foxes and its adaptability has earned it a slot in the “worlds 100 most invasive species “ list after it was introduced and adapted well in Australia. . 
This video show while on assignment for @natgeowild shows the interdependence of this canine with the apex feline of the Western Himalaya - the Snow Leopard

Photo @jasonedwardsng It is a mistake to underestimate the power and speed of Elephants. Given their size this may sound obvious, however nearly everyone I know who has worked with these amazing animals will have a wide-eyed story to tell around a campfire. I have several myself, that often end in “I didn’t see that coming!” .

This individual was submerged in deep water with only the crown of its head visible and the tip of the trunk for breathing, this is known as snorkeling. Without warning the elephant erupted from the water flying into the air, bugling and swinging its enormous trunk like a club. It was over in seconds but the scene of ivory and flesh exploding from the calm surface in such close proximity is one I will always remember. .

Please join me @jasonedwardsng for images and stories from my National Geographic assignments. .

Photo by @daisygilardini | King penguins commute every morning from the colony to the beach, like diligent workers commuting to work in the big cities. They then jump into the sea to fish for the day.
I was fortunate to spend a full week in the Falkland Islands in late October, following them. Rain or shine, I was there — at the beach — witnessing  the parade and trying to capture the elegance of these gentle creatures in the morning light.
