Photo by @BrianSkerry A tiny Painted Topshell crawls over jeweled anemones underwater off the coast of Valentia Island in Ireland. The topsail’s eyes peek out from the shell and its tentacles help it navigate through a micro world beneath the sea.

Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz We drove for two days across the sands of the Sahara and I felt lucky to find a caravan of a few hundred camels carrying salt from the mines in #Bilma, Niger. We followed them for many days as they navigated the dunes, and I flew above them in the mornings and afternoons with my new #paramotor. When another caravan passed in the opposite direction I felt like lightening had just struck twice! This moment changed the course of my career, and I became obsessed with exploring deserts with my little machine.

Photo by @edkashi Refugees walk through the overcrowded Al Za’atri refugee camp for Syrians, near Mafraq, Jordan on Nov. 17, 2013. Since Syria’s civil war began in March 2011, over 2 million people seeking sanctuary from the raging violence have fled to neighboring countries. Amidst this relentless wave of uncertainty, frustration, and fear, concerns of increased mental illness prevail. With over half of the refugee population under age 18, the psychological and emotional stability of Syria’s exiled youth is of particular concern.

Photo by @edkashi Young refugees build a fire as the sun sets in the desert between the Syrian and Iraqi borders in Ereinbeh, Jordan on Nov. 14, 2013. Among these refugees are a group of siblings who have been in Jordan since fleeing their home in Syria in August of 2012. Their parents made them leave Syria to avoid rape of the girls and conscription of the boy into the military or the Free Syrian Army, and now live in a tent with their grandmother.

Photo by @edkashi A Muslim woman awaits a verdict from the senior sharia court judge, Ibrahim Sarki Yola, in Kano, Nigeria on April 15, 2013. In 2000, several predominantly Muslim states in northern Nigeria formally adopted Islamic law as part of their legal system, despite concerns from the largely Christian population in the south. Tensions between the primarily Muslim north and the Christian south continue to rise along with the violent presence of an Islamic insurgent group, Boko Haram.

Photo by @JohnStanmeyer Displaced for so long due to conflict, Mohammad Magelk, 23, decided to grow grass in front of his tent, the only home he’s known for more than two years. He and his family were displaced due to war in his home country of #Syrian living now with this wife and extended family in the AFAD refugee camp, #Nizip, #Turkey. Fleeing Terror, Finding Refuge ~ My latest story for @NatGeo magazine on #Syrianrefugees in Turkey, Part IV of the @outofedenwalk, published in the March 2015 issue, available now at newsstands everywhere. PERSONAL NOTES: I’ve covered more refugee crisis’ around the planet over the last 25+ years then my consciousness often can bare. The Syrian crisis — a tragedy happening throughout the region — was extremely acute in Turkey, where for nearly three years, 1.3 million Syrians have sought refuge from conflict back home. Traveling to numerous camps in eastern Turkey back in September of last year for this month’s Nat Geo story on migration caused by war and conflict, I decided to visit Nizip camp, a fairly established camp of more than 11,000 Syrians. Wandering about the camp, I was amazed by the quality and care given by the Turkish government to those who have basically lost everything — everyone had a tent, television, access to food, water, even education for their children. Yet nothing could prepare me when stumbling across the home of Mohammad Magelk, an astonishing example of what long-term displacement visually means — a complete lawn. I asked Mr. Magelk why he goes to such length caring for his small yard he often tends with only a pair of scissors. His replay will remain in memory for years to come: “If you saw my house in Syria, this is just a part of it. When I sit here in front of this tent, I remember my garden back home in Idlib.” Pick up the March 2015 edition of National Geographic with an powerful manuscript by #PaulSalopek to understand the weight and measure of what it means to be displaced, a devastating reality for millions around our planet today.

Photo by @BrianSkerry A pair of large tiger sharks cruise over corals in the Bahamas. Considered the most dangerous shark species in tropical waters, researchers are now learning about behaviors that until recently remained a mystery. As with all species, the tiger shark faces declining populations worldwide as the demand for shark fins continues. An upcoming story in @natgeo will reveal fascinating details about the lives of these important ocean predators.

Photo taken by @stevemccurryofficial // Isolation and bitter winters define Hazarajat villages like Qala-e Sabzi, in Bamiyan Province, Afghanistan. The harsh land is integral to this nomadic herder culture with deep roots in high pastures. “Koh-o mar-domon moya,” a saying goes: “The mountains are our people.” After the picture was published in National Geographic, Mike Libecki, later a NG Adventurer of the Year, using this photograph, found this area and climbed these avalanche-prone peaks. #MikeLibecki #BamiyanProvince #Afghanistan #Hazarajat by natgeo
