Like many indigenous people in the Amazon, the Awa keep wild animals as pets and seem particularly fond of monkeys. Baby monkeys are usually acquired when their parent is shot for food. The monkeys are much loved and often spend much of the day sleeping on people’s heads especially when they are young like this one. – 1,964,229 likes – Photograph By @chamiltonjames

Galapagos marine iguanas live on the edge—the difference between life and death is a few degrees of temperature. The world’s only ocean going lizards graze on cold water seaweeds. Increases in sea temperature have detrimental effects on marine iguana populations. No seaweed=No iguanas. – 1,779,146 likes – Photograph By @thomaspeschak

This is what a starving polar bear looks like. People have asked why we couldn’t help. In addition to being illegal to feed wildlife, polar bears like this one need several hundred pounds of meat to survive. We didn’t have a weapon and we didn’t have any food. We were hundreds of miles from the nearest Inuit community. What we did do was push through our tears knowing that this footage was going to help connect a global audience to the biggest issue facing us as a species today. It is true that we don’t know what caused this animal to starve but we are certain that unless we curb carbon emissions, sea ice will continue to disappear and many more bears will starve. – 1,748,398 likes – Photograph By @cristinamittermeier

Jackson, WY 11:38am 8.21.17. What a moment…as the magic of the universe was unveiled, a collective primal howl and cheer could be heard across the valley. I wish I could say I was waiting for exactly the right timing….but I was chasing ten kids around the backyard and running by the camera randomly hitting the shutter button. This was the only frame that looked remotely like this. Just reinforces that serendipity can be your best friend when it comes to photography. – 1,746,290 likes – Photograph By @jimmy_Chin

This Greenlandic dog is not a pet but a working dog the Inuit use for dog-sledding. With the disappearance of sea ice, they have become a burden, which is why some hunters are forced to shoot them. It is too expensive to sustain and feed them throughout the year when they can only use them for shorter and shorter periods of time. I took this portrait while crossing the frozen sea on my way to Siorapaluk, one of the northernmost settlements on the planet. – 1,616,981 likes – Photograph By @ciriljazbec
