Greenland is melting for the first time on its entire surface. Large lakes form, creating a web of thousands of rivers that are slowly filling up the ocean. Unlike Antarctic, its southern bigger counterpart, the Greenlandic ice sheet is the fastest-melting glacial land ice in the world.
Just as worrisome as the increasing sea levels, is the darkening of the surface, which will gradually turn Greenland from a cooler to a self-heater, which could together with the melting of permafrost set a fatal rate to the speed of global warming. /

Video by @jenniferhayesig (Jennifer Hayes) // sponsored by @landolakesinc | Dot Dot, a Holstein cow, finishes a milking session on a robotic dairy in Northern New York. I grew up on a family-owned dairy farm facing rising operating costs, unpredictable milk prices, and labor issues. A neighboring farm looked at technological solutions using robots to reduce labor and increase the comfort of the herd. Each cow decides when she wants to be milked and enters a robotic milking station of her choice wearing a transponder. This allows a computer to ID her name and displays everything about her milk production, health, activity (in steps per day) and comfort (measured by cud chewing). She eats her grain while she is washed and milked and then she exits to wander about, feed on a balanced diet of silage, haylage and soybeans and rest on a water-filled mattress. Minimum human interaction leaves more decision-making to the cow, creating a less stressful environment. The result is a more contented herd, increased milk production and preservation of a family farm for the next generation. -

Video by @renan_ozturk // Footage of stone masters @tommyCaldwell and @kjorgenson during their quest to free-climb the Dawn Wall in @yosemitenps, probably hardest technical big wall rock climb on earth. It’s an evolution not only in the art of climbing itself but also in the filmmaking community embedded within it. Congrats to the entire team for completing the feature documentary THE DAWN WALL and premiering this past week at SXSW, taking home the audience choice award!

Video by @ChristineEckstrom and @FransLanting While a first-time mother chimp we knew as Nickel takes a midday siesta with her newborn baby, a young male named Mike edges in to them. He expresses his affection for the baby by kissing her and stroking her head. Female chimps with infants tend to be protective and guarded around males, but Mike’s attitude was so affectionate that he was tolerated by Nickel—she trusted him enough to fall asleep. Within chimp families relationships between individuals are as unique as they are in human families. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more coverage of our closest relatives on the tree of life. @ThePhotoSociety @NatGeoCreative #Chimps #Apes #Baby #Family
Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - so..if you’ve ever wondered what a sleeping bull elephant sounds like ? Turn up the volume and wonder no more ❤️❤️ - I’ve been working today with the extraordinary combined teams from @savetheelephants and @Lewa_wildlife @nrt_kenya here in northern Kenya. We’ve collared 3 cows, and 2 bulls right up in Biliqo Bulesa, it’s one of the largest conservancies with @nrt_kenya therefore nomadic pastoralists from several ethnic backgrounds converge across this vast and beautiful rangeland; this is one of my favourite places on the planet 💚💚 It forms a vital corridor for wildlife from Samburu, Buffalo Springs, and Shaba National Reserves, and from Sera conservancy. By collaring these elephant we will more easily be able to see their routes of travel, predict possible areas of conflict, and mitigate them ahead of issues arising, and share vital data received from them in times of climatic change, such as drought. The collars will function without further intervention for 3/4 years supplying data continuously. The entire process took minutes due to the great skill of those working on this project, and Dr Mathew Mutinda, a Kenya Wildlife vet who I’ve had the incredible honour to work over the past years. He, without any shadow of exaggeration is singlehandedly responsible for saving more wildlife in this region than any other individual I’ve ever met, anywhere ! 👍🏿👍🏼 - One fact - elephants can breathe through their mouths and trunk, however, during this procedure, whilst sleeping, the trunk end is held open with a small stick as limiting air through either air passage would cause discomfort. Once the elephant starts to wake, the stick is removed - The respiratory system of the elephant is quite exceptional and the success of this operation relies on the immense skill and speed of the teams here - A perfect day today for wildlife and those humans acting as custodians in these challenging times #nopoaching #elephant #conserving #conservation @nrt_kenya @lewa_wildlife @savetheelephants @natgeo @thephotosociety
