This is the touching moment Dr. Jane Goodall receives a hug of thanks from the Chimpanzee called Wounda who she nursed back to health from near death. In this clip Wounda, who has been successfully rehabilitated, is being released back into the wild.🐒 Video by @janegoodallinst Caption by @a_lallie_ #animalpolis #wildlife #wildlifewarrior #animalelite #igs_africa #adfricanamazing #wildlifewednesday #conservation #wildlifeowners #wildlifefriend #wildlifetrust #wildliferescue #splendid_animals #ic_animals #wildlifefestival #wildlifecentral

P o l a r • p l u n g e 🧊 I spent an hour or so looking through some of the images from our 2018 Svalbard trip with @polarquest. With 35,000 photos, it’s hardly surprising that I came across dozens of decent shots that I don’t know I’ve ever laid eyes on before. Including this one, of a male polar bear just moments before he plunged into the freezing cold water! Svalbard is simply astonishing, a place like no other. There are many habitats I’d be devastated to see us lose, but none more than the Arctic ice world and its magnificent bears. 🐾 #MindfulAdventures

Too long since i posted a photo of the highest elevation amphibian species in the world, the marbled water frog (Telmatobius marmoratus)! Or rather tied for that title of highest frog with another species whose populations have climbed the recently deglaciated Andean passes up to over 5400 m asl. In the lunar landscape at that elevation there are few plants and its amazing that amphibians can survive, both species live around pools and ponds of glacial melt water up there. These frogs range almost 500m higher than the next highest contenders in the Himalayas. Why do the frogs here live higher than anywhere else? We suspect that it has to do with the fact that Peru has 80% of the world's tropical glaciers which provide sources of water in an otherwise barren and inhospitable landscape, it seems like this may have opened the door for amphibian species to move upslope. They certainly continue to colonize upwards in recent decades as the glaciers still melt opening still higher and higher portions of the terrain. However, this species is considered pretty much aquatic, so how in the world did it climb higher up the mountains than other frog species both in the Andes and across the world?  We don't know exactly but some of the ponds are connected by trickles of water that may swell at certain times of the year and act as pathways between ponds/bogs, also we could sometimes hear subterranean streams moving underneath the ground or under immense piles of boulders and rubble. Could the frogs be using these underground streams to climb upwards? It doesn't seem unlikely to me atleast. The frog pictured is sadly not from the highest point where this species is known from and where we did find them, but the work there was in the early days of the field season and I was not yet acclimated to the altitude. It was all I could do to get work done and not keel over, sadly leaving no opportunity for photos. . . . . #herping #fieldherping #Telmatobius #Andes #Peru #frogFriday #froglovers #froglover #amphibian #conservation #Wildlifephotography #frogging #earthcapture #herpetology #conservationphotography #Naturalwonders #frogsofinstagram #igscwildlife #animalelite #herps

[Lioness and cub] While on a safari in Serengeti I was very lucky to witness this special moment between a lioness and her cub, laying in the shadow of one of the few trees around. Not sure if they were just observing, planning, or were full but having them there was giving a different dimension to the Great Migration that was happening in the background.

The piercing stare of Australia’s beautiful Powerful Owl. It has taken a lot of patience and many attempts to see this bird but with a little help from @_faunagraphic I have finally seen them in the wild. This is this year chick fledged and looking fantastic.

inspiringmemories. Lately I've been thinking more than ever that family and friendship ar

Lately I've been thinking more than ever that family and friendship are super important and I believe that when something bad happens to you, life will reveal to you who are the ones that really care about you and you will get to see who are the ones that never ask you how you are (or only contact you when they need your help). Photography has helped me a lot lately to forget about the bad things for a moment, and to really just focus on taking the best shots possibIe and I can lose myself completely in taking photos. I hope everyone has something like that in their lives, something where they can just completely feel good and carefree for a while, maybe it's a place, a sport, a hobby or a person for you, but I truly wish everyone that! 💕🐒 (Photos taken in Sri Lanka this summer!)😊

I found some new goats. It’s a farm I’ve been to but I didn’t realize they were hiding goats (and a cranky horse) in the back.

While the distant mountains are still bathing in the late summer sun, a musk ox grazes in the shade. She takes a quick glance at me, before continuing to graze, completely undisturbed. 1/400 sec f/5.6 ISO 1250 ~ Shot using the Canon 300mm f/2.8 IS II and a Canon 2x iii extender on a Canon 5D mark iv - that I borrowed from @interfotonorge #youngnaturephotographers #naturephotography #nature #earthcapture #earthfocus #wildlifefeaturez #wildlife #canon_photos #splendid_animals #exklusive_animals #animal_perfection #wildlife_perfection #nb_nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #wildlifeplanet #marvelouz_animals #featured_wildlife #animalelite #exclusive_wildlife #wildlife_inspired #wildlifephotography #wild_nordic #featured_wildlife #wildplanet #discoverwildlife #wildlifeig #earthcapture #bbcearth #nrknatur #canonnordic @youngnaturephotographers @canonnordic
