Photograph by @paulnicklen // 4 month polar bear cubs peek over their mother while she waits out a hot day near Ellesmere Island, Nunavut. During the spring, polar bears often travel at night when the snow is more firm and the air temperature is cooler. Fortunately, that is when the light is best. To see what it looks like when one of these little cubs grows up to be an 800 pound plus bear, please #followme me on @paulnicklen #cute #bear #polarbear #nature #beauty #naturelovers #instagramhub #climatechangeisreal #adventure

Photo @ladzinski / A #crabEaterSeal resting on a small iceberg under a fiery sunset on the #AntarcticaPeninsula. Over the last two decades, the Antarctica Peninsula region has warmed significantly, directly contributing to substantial ice loss. Sea ice is critical to not only the large animals in this ecosystem, but to the lower food chain as well. It''s where bacteria grows that krill feed on. Predators in turn, like this crab eater seal here, feed heavily on krill. The loss of sea ice creates a struggle from the bottom up leaving with it a lot of unanswered questions to what this means for the abundance of animals that live here and how it''s affecting ocean sea rise globally.

Photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. Wildlife keeper Rimland Lemojong plays ball with Pokot, a seven-month-old male elephant, in front of the elephant enclosures at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Pokot arrived in November 2016 and is one of a dozen elephants being rehabilitated by these dedicated keepers in the hopes of releasing him back to the wild herds of Northern Kenya, which is home to Kenya''s second largest elephant population. Read more about Reteti in my @NatGeo story: https://tinyurl.com/kvopc69 Follow all of us, @r.e.s.c.u.e, nearby @sararacamp and @amivitale to support and learn more about these initiatives. @nrt_kenya @lewa_wildlife @kenyawildlifeservice @tusk_org @sandiegozoo @conservationorg @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nature_africa #elephants #saveelephants #retetielephants #ecotourism #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #photojournalism #amivitale

Photo by @michaelnicknichols. Mirithi, silverback mountain gorilla, Virunga Mountains, Rwanda, 1981 This image taught me that I could be a powerful voice for those that cannot speak. Mirithi was very young and one of the first gorillas to be habituated for tourism. Revenue from tourism is ultimately what saved the mountain gorilla and the fabulous land they inhabit. His father was shot and he had to takeover is family which was led by his mother while he gained confidence. He was famous for sideways bluff charges though he never hurt or even touched a tourist. Sadly he was shot in his prime by frightened soldiers that were patroling the park for rebels in the years before the Rwanda genocide. author Melissa Harris spent 5 years exploring my life for A Wildlife just out from Aperture and accompanied by WILD michael nichols an exhibit running from June 27 - Sept 17 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art @aperturefnd @natgeocreative @michaelnicknichols @philamuseum #awildlifebook #MichaelNicholswild
