{Video by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | A pair of baby Indochinese silvered langurs cling to one another @ACCB_cambodia in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This endangered primate is in severe decline due to logging and poaching—babies are sold as pets, then given to the center once people realize they can’t care for them. To catch another glimpse of this pair, follow me @joelsartore. #langurs #primate #endangeredspecies #PhotoArk != null ?

These islands, located approximately 600 miles from Tokyo, are home to the fictional creature Godzilla. But diving here for me was far from frightening, as I was frequently surrounded by beautiful fish, invertebrates, and even dolphins.

{Photo by Katie Orlinsky @katieorlinsky | Shot on assignment for “The Carbon Threat,” in this month’s issue of National Geographic (link in my bio). Ground collapses at Duvanny Yar, a permafrost “megaslump” along the Kolyma River in northern Siberia. This constantly moving landslide, driven by erosion and sped up by warming temperatures, is an important research site for scientists, who use it to track what happens when carbon-rich land that has been hidden and frozen for centuries begins to thaw. Permafrost is a layer of continuously frozen soil found primarily in the Arctic. It covers almost 1/4 of the Earth’s surface. Scientists have recently discovered that permafrost is thawing much faster than expected, releasing carbon gases that could drastically speed up climate change. != null ?

{Photo by @stephenwilkes // Sponsored by @adastramovie // I recently directed and photographed a visit to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory with actor and producer Brad Pitt, who is starring in the upcoming sci-fi film Ad Astra. I witnessed his curiosity, passion, and intellect firsthand, and we explored the remarkable science and history within the walls of the JPL. We began in Mission Control, where this image was taken. This area is known as the “center of the universe,” where all communications from the Deep Space Network enter through this one facility. We then visited the In-Situ Instrument Lab, known as the sandbox, where the surface of the red planet is replicated in order to test commands to the InSight lander and Curiosity rover via exact replicas. The fact that scientists will create billion-dollar instruments in this sandbox made me reflect on the obvious connection between creativity, science, and play. Learning about the InSight lander in particular, from its shock-absorbing legs to the tiny rockets that stabilize it during landing, was especially fascinating. The biggest highlight was when scientists turned the actual camera of the replica InSight onto Brad; he held perfectly still for 60 seconds as it captured his image. I'm thrilled to include this image in our related Instagram Story. // See Brad Pitt in #AdAstra, in theaters everywhere tomorrow. != null ?

Occasionally, though, hares would run past willow bushes, causing them to stick out, the way we see here. They are one of the Arctic’s fastest animals, clocking 37 mph at top speed.

{Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | Sandy Serenity: In the San Luis rift valley, winds lift sand from dry lakes on the valley floor to form giant dunes, the tallest in North America. The constant back-and-forth of winds blows sand from the valley floor to the mountains and vice versa during storms, helping maintain the dunes’ height, which can reach up to 750 feet tall—before collapsing under their own weight. I’ve marveled at this ever shifting natural phenomenon my entire life. To see more wild places, follow @pedromcbride. #GreatSandDunes #nationalpark #Colorado #nature #humility != null ?

{Photo by Simon Norfolk @simonnorfolkstudio I Territorially part of Yemen, Socotra (سُقُطْرَى‎ in Arabic) is an archipelago of four islands. The largest island, also known as Socotra, lies about 240 km (150 mi) east of the Horn of Africa and 380km (240mi) south of the Arabian Peninsula. As a consequence of its isolation, the island is home to a high number of endemic species; up to a third of its plant life is endemic. It has been described as the "most alien-looking place on Earth.” In the 1990s, a team of United Nations biologists conducted a survey of the archipelago’s flora and fauna and counted nearly 700 species found nowhere else; only New Zealand, Hawaii, New Caledonia, and the Galápagos Islands have more impressive numbers. 
In the foreground, the Socotra desert rose, or bottle tree, can be seen—one of the island's endemic plants. The plant is highly poisonous and unpalatable to livestock, and despite being widespread on the island, is considered vulnerable and therefore included on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species.

{Photo by @brianskerry // Sponsored by @AmericanExpress // An olive ridley sea turtle finds itself entangled in a plastic basket in the waters off Sri Lanka. In the four decades that I’ve been exploring the world’s oceans, I have seen more plastic in the sea each year. The devastating impact this has on marine wildlife is substantial and can be seen in many ways. In this case, the turtle likely came close to the drifting basket because floating objects in the ocean often attract marine life below. The basket had a plastic rope handle and the turtle’s flippers became severely entangled, preventing the turtle from swimming or diving. After making this photograph, I was able to free the turtle, and it swam away quickly. // Go to @AmericanExpress to learn more about what American Express is doing to address marine plastic pollution and to discover how you can get involved. != null ?
