Members of the @intotheokavango Wilderness Project look through samples of insects in an entomology institute outside the Angolan city of #Huambo. The collection is vast and exceptionally well organized. More remarkable, still, is that it remained perfectly intact throughout Angola's vicious civil war. The facility has only intermittent electricity and lacks the capacity to undertake much contemporary research. Expedition team members, many of whom are regional field biologists, marveled at the samples and lamented the fact that such a collection remains largely out of reach of the broader scientific community. "I did my masters research on a particular type of regional butterfly," said Gotz Neef, the expedition's chief researcher. "I knew that the species also lived in Angola but I had no access to such specimens. We didn't even know that such an amazing collection existed. My research would have been much richer had I had access to this place." As we prepared to leave, Dr. Paul Skelton, a South African fish biologist approached me. "Pete, you're not a biologist so perhaps you might not immediately appreciate how much time and effort went into building this collection," he said. "This took decades of the lives of many people." I've covered a lot of conflict but it is often these moments, when I see how war's residue continues to undermine potential, that I find most poignant. #intotheokavango#cubango2017#conservation#Africa#biodiversity#expedition#Angola
Portrait taking in a village 25km north of Bac Ha, close to Vietnam and china border. Bac Ha district, north of Vietnam.
One of the best experiences I had in the Southeast Asian dragon was traveling along the border between China and Vietnam.
In the north you can find various ethnic minorities.
For a few dollars can rent a motorbike, my company for several weeks. On my last trip I traveled the routes and roads of Vietnam from northwest to northeast. I travelled until my energy would let me or the night would fall.

Video by @christian_foto / @prime_collective Link on my profile 🏽 I am very happy to announce that today I have started a Kickstarter campaign to finish the last phase of my project TEEN MOM project on young motherhood in Latin America. I have worked in this project independently and almost self-financed for the past 5 years.
Your collaboration will be used to make the last two trips, and create a platform with educational content so that children from all over the continent and the world can access information regarding this issue.
Texolo waterfall park located in the Municipality of Xico, in Veracruz, Mexico. The main waterfall has an approximate height of 78.7 feet. There is a bridge over the ravine that connects both parts of the forest. On the other side, there are two smaller waterfalls that can be seen from some of the trails in the area. The waterfalls and their surroundings have been used to film several films.
A study showed that a 30-minute forest trek decreased negative feelings such as stress, depression, anger, fatigue, anxiety, and confusion, and improved cognitive skills. Forest walking is a natural mood enhancer, but it can also help our brains function better and can even improve concentration.

Photo by @melburford / @prime_collective .The most difficult thing about traveling is being away from my boys... I got home tonight from the airport and went to check on them. They were sleeping, cheeks warm, curled under their covers, peaceful. I kissed them both gently, tucked in their covers and quietly closed the door, wishing that I could bottle that feeling of pure love and innocence. #latergram#parenting#love#son#childhoodunplugged#home#family

Each day, as the @intotheokavango river team arrives at their campsite, data collection specialist Abhi Ravivarma sends up a drone to make aerial images of the surrounding area. As the team moves down the Cubango River in Angola, they collect water samples, note various flora and fauna and create exhaustive visual records of the river system. Throughout every paddle stroke, Abhi oversees a camera rig that collects 360 degree images from the boat level. The Okanvango Wilderness Project aims to create exhaustive surveys of the main tributaries that support the #Okavango Delta, a pristine and biodiversity-rich wilderness in northern #Botswana. In order to ensure the ecological health of the Delta, the project leaders aim to protect critical swaths of the tributaries. #intotheokavango#cubango2017#Angola#science#biodiversity#conservation#river#Cubango#Africa#expedition

Firefighters work to prevent the Rim Fire from jumping Highway 120 near Buck Meadows, California, in August, 2013. The Rim Fire burned 257,314 acres and is the third largest wildfire in California history. Max spent the last handful of years documenting the effects of drought in the American West. While a wet winter has brought this drought to an official close, the combination of climate change and an ever-increasing population means we're likely to see another one in the near future. As forests dried out and millions of trees died, devastating wildfires became normal. #drought#water#wildfire#climatechange

Photo by @melburford / @prime_collective So insanely thrilled that this is happening... our first workshop for the NatGeo Photo Camp Norway project began on Friday in Trondheim. Come follow us at @ngpcnorway We have 23 people from eleven countries including Iran, Syria, Eritrea, Yemen, Iraq, China, Germany, Sweden, Afghanistan, Scotland ... and Norway! We're gathering the students this weekend and they have two months to build friendships and explore what "home" means... before the National Geographic Photo Camp team arrive in August. Such an incredible group of students that have so much to teach us. #ngpctrondheim2017#photography#trondheim#norway#friendship@ngphotocamp

Photo by @petekmuller / @prime_collective . Dr. Steve Boyes stands for a portrait at the end of a tough day of expedition down the #Cubango River in Angola. Steve is a conservation biologist and ornithologist who oversees the Okavango Wilderness Project, a National Geographic-supported initiative to protect the pristine Okavango Delta in Botswana. Steve has studied the Okvango ecosystem for more than 15 years and is deeply committed to its preservation. Pete has joined Steve and his team as they commence their latest MegaTransect which covers over 1000 kilometers of the #Cubango River, a main tributary into the Okavango Delta. Each day the team navigates the river in mekoros, a type of traditional dug out canoe commonly used in the Delta. They take water samples, note bird and wildlife species and collect other data regarding the river's ecosystem. #intotheokavango#Cubango2017#expedition#river#Okavango#Angola#wilderness#science#adventure
The average start of sexual life in Colombia is 14 years old . Every time they become pregnant at a younger age, Colombia’s reality is similar to the rest of Latin America but it is particularly worrying in girls under 14 years old. 44% of teen pregnancies in girls were sought to get out of their realities.
Colombia is a pioneer in implementing the baby robots program. There has been a reduction between 33% and 35% in teen pregnancy. The program's goal is to prepare them for their future parenthood and make them have a planned life project” said Camila Guzman, Director of the program "Bebé, Piénsalo Bien.” ( Baby, Think it over ). This program was created to raise awareness and prevent teen pregnancy, it uses robot babies that are ran by a software. The children have to attend to the babies needs like: feeding them, changing their pampers, relieving stomach ailments, comforting them when crying, for 48/72 hours. This week I am working in Meta Municipality in Colombia. There has been a reduction of 35% in young pregnancy. The program "Bebé, Piénsalo Bien.” ( Baby, Think it over) has been applied in the last 5 years

Photo by @maxwhittaker / @prime_collective . Krzysztof Wielicki was the first climber to summit an 8000m peak in winter (Everest in 1980), first to summit an 8000m peak in a day (Broad Peak in 1984, solo) and too many other firsts to list here. At 67, he's one of Poland's few remaining alpinists from their golden years in the Himalayas and will lead, from base camp, next winter's attempt on K2. Michael Powell writes, "I put the question of death’s allure to him and he shakes his head. He wanted to live, always, even if along the serrated edge of a knife. He noted an axiom of climbing: A young climber is the most endangered, as he does not know enough to worry. To that, he adds another: An older climber should not draw too much comfort from mastery of technique. That can prove a frail shield in the high Himalayas."
