Video by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodriguez ) Guerrero is located in the southeast region of Mexico. The principal economic activity is agriculture, where big amounts of corn and other products are produced.
Within the mountain, there are hundreds of towns where life and time pass by at a very different rhythm to the one from the cities. What never ceased to amaze me during my multiple trips to Guerrero is the human quality of its people who have been stricken by violence  and illegal drug trade over the last years.
View of Xochistlahuaca.
Xochistlahuaca is a town in the Xochistlahuaca Municipality located in the southeast corner of the Mexican state of Guerrero. It is part of this state's Costa Chica region, located close to the Pacific Ocean, with a mostly mountainous territory. The population is dominated by the indigenous Amuzgo ethnicity, whose women are noted for their traditional hand-woven garments, especially the huipil, which is made both for home use and for sale outside the area.
The name Xochistlahuaca comes from the nahuatl xochitl (flower) and ixtlahuatlan (plain); "plain of the flowers".

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // On this week of #Thanksgiving, I feel grateful for home.  The bountiful seas of the British Columbia Coast are graced by the presence of thousands of humpback #whales and orcas and by some of our planet’s most dramatic and beautiful coastal rainforests.  Living among wildlife and so close to nature is what I am most thankful for.  #Follow @cristinamittermeier to see more images from this magical corner of the world I call #home: #VancouverIsland

Photo @ladzinski / #EasterIsland, named by the Dutch in the 1700’s is known to the locales as #RapaNui. This is an island with a rich history and most famously known for its #Moai statues, nearly 1,000 strong represented throughout the island and carved between the 12th and 15th century. The tallest Moai on the island is over 30 feet tall and weighs over 90 tons! To see more photos from this wonder of the world, please visit @ladzinski

Video by @paulnicklen // Life is incredibly exciting and challenging for a young black bear cub along the coast of British Columbia. In the fall, they follow their mothers unconditionally through powerful rivers in search of the final feast of the year on salmon. Please #follow me on @paulnicklen to see how efficiently these bears pull salmon out of the rivers. For @sea_legacy #bear #love #challenge #animals #wildlife #nature #video #funny

Here, a woman in Les Cayes, Haiti, stands among trees ravaged by the 2016 hurricane.
Last November, I photographed the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti for the August issue of National Geographic. There, the combination of poor sanitation with a natural disaster caused the remnants of cholera to surge. (Cholera was brought to Haiti by UN peacekeepers after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.) #haiti #hurricanematthew #sanitation @noorimages

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Two explorers head back to their camp after a long trip underground exploring caves on top of Sarisarinama Tepui in Venezuela.
This photograph is from a portfolio I made from inside caves on top of extremely remote tepuis (aka table-top mountains) in Venezuela. The scientists from the Italian geographic exploration group known as ‘La Venta’ and the Venezuelan team ‘Theraposa’ were looking for unique forms of bacteria that could help clinical microbiologists in studies into bacterial resistance to antibiotics. It was a fascinating assignment to a very remote and rarely visited part of our world. The diverse environment on top of these tepuis is like no other anywhere on planet Earth, as each tepui is different and home to a unique world. @natgeocreative

Rohingya refugees queueing during an emergency food distribution in Kutupalong refugee camp in southern Bangladesh.
Since August 25, more than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims, an ethnic minority group, have fled their homes in Myanmar in what the United Nations human rights chief has called “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” Watch the story Path To Persecution on national geographic website, my latest coverage of the Rohingya refugees crisis photographed on assignment for the magazine.

Here is a female tired from hunting while swimming in the river, now she rests on the riverbank at sunset.  Nature is perfection. It gives us the air we breathe and the water we all need for our life. 
My @natgeo jaguar story come out this week - the December issue of National Geographic Magazine! and LOOK for our @NatGeowild Big Cat Week show which premiers on Dec 10th @ 9PM, filmed with @bertiegregory in Dec. 2017.

Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid 
My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have.

Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water.
If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them.
So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves.  Please visit CauseAnUproar.org to find out other ways to become involved to save big cats!

Photos by @renan_ozturk // “Can we eat like our ancestor’s did in today’s time?” - Native American artist and foodie Roxanne Swentzell at her home during the @gatherfilm shoots with the Pueblo New Mexico tribes.  Beside her emotive bronze & clay sculptures she has a complex food story that fits into our film on Native American food sovereignty. ~

At one point her whole family was suffering from health problems - high cholesterol, obesity, heart problems, autoimmune diseases and chronic disease. It’s not uncommon in a lot of Native communities which have had their land (which is their food) cut out and replaced by corn syrp, white bread and whatever you can get at the gas station... because that is all there was available in multiple communities we visited. ~

Roxanne is a success a story.  She began following the ancient food ways -  not eating processed white flour and sugar but rather self-grown beans, corn and squash. Quickly, her and her family’s health drastically improved.  While we were at her adobe house that she built herself at age 23 we got a tour of her converted seed bank of ancient grains, tasted her grasshopper flour and wandered amongst the goats and turkeys while we checked out the art inhabiting every nook and cranny of the compound. ~

Photograph by @jenniferhayesig #partneredcontent with @Rolex | Clownfish swim in host anemone in Tubbataha Reef Natural Park. Tubbataha Reef, the coral heart of the Philippines, is one of the most biodiverse reefs in the world. Its isolation and committed managers make it one of the best protected reefs on Earth—a near-pristine ocean wilderness. 
National Geographic and @Rolex have formed a partnership to promote exploration and conservation; to support explorers and nurture the next generation. #PerpetualPlanet

photo @chien_chi_chang October 28, 2017. Since late August, Myanmar military has conducted clearance operations burning over 200 Rohingya villages in Rakhine State which have caused reportedly half a million Rohingya to flee to neighboring Bangladesh. With no guarantee for safe return by the Myanmar government, they can only wait with no hope on the horizon. Meanwhile, they are scattered around makeshift refugee camps outside of Cox’s Bazar. Remember Rwanda?! #RohingyaCrisis #Magnum Photos #cccontheroad
