Photo by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder | North Korean students carrying torches hold a mass march on Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang to mark the 70th anniversary of the nation's founding. Please follow me @dguttenfelder for an inside look at North Korea, where I have been traveling and photographing for the past 19 years.

Photo by Trevor Frost @tbfrost | While working on a film in the Peruvian Amazon, I visited several fires that were set to clear land for cacao plantations. At one of these locations local nonprofit @hojanueva helped me look for the remains of animals that were killed by the flames. In one hour we found dead lizards, snakes, small mammals, and four yellow-footed tortoises, including this one, which was likely 25 to 30 years old. To learn more about my ongoing work in the Amazon rainforest, I'm @tbrost.

Photo by Lynsey Addario @lynseyaddario | Gulam Farouq, a soldier in the Afghan national army, hands out bread to Afghan widows and other women, outside the shrine to Sufi poet and philosopher Kwaja Abdullah Ansari, in Herat. In a country with 35 percent unemployment and 36 percent of people living below the poverty line, Afghan soldiers and police officers typically collect donations from visitors in the area around the shrine and pass them on to the poor and the disabled. This image was shot for "Veiled Rebellion," published in December 2010. To see more of my work, follow @lynseyaddario.

Photo by Kirsten Luce @kirstenluce | Video from @saveelephantfoundation | Amazing news: Gluay Hom the elephant has started a new life at a sanctuary! Thank you to the @natgeo Instagram community for speaking out and fighting for him—your voices made a difference. He’s receiving vet care, plenty of food, and discovering grass and swimming after spending years chained on concrete. For our June feature story on wildlife tourism, writer @natashaldaly and I documented Gluay Hom’s situation. We found him behind a stadium, with a swollen leg and bloody sores, at Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm & Zoo, outside Bangkok. Last month, following public outrage, the Thai nonprofit Save Elephant Foundation secured Gluay Hom’s purchase and brought him to its sanctuary in Chiang Mai. Although many animals still languish at Samut Prakarn and other facilities around Thailand, Natasha and I never imagined Gluay Hom would have this second chance. Thank you for sharing our story.

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

Photo by Brian Skerry @brianskerry | A school of glasseye fish pause on a coral reef in Japan’s Ogasawara Islands. 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. Follow @BrianSkerry and dive deep into the world of marine wildlife. #Japan #ogasawara #chichijima #godzilla

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.

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.

Video by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | In snowdrifts the arctic hare is a master of camouflage. 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
