There is no question why the #GrandCanyon attracts thousands of visitors every year. The sheer #cliffs and vibrant #colors are the product of 17 million years of erosion, and the #ColoradoRiver, nestled cozily at the bottom of the canyon, burrows itself deeper every day.

Snowy white pelicans drift lazily down a canal in the #MississippiRiverDelta, gouged out of the #swampland by oil and gas developers. The Mississippi river produces the 7th largest river delta in the world, spanning 3 million acres from the Gulf of Mexico to the southeastern coast of #Louisiana. It’s a vitally important #ecosystem that supports the entire region, but due to #climatechange and damage caused by the oil and gas industry, the Delta has been sinking steadily into the sea – 1,900 square miles lost since the 1930’s.

Photo by @cookjenshel Here’s our photo offering for Earth Day, with this year’s theme of Trees for the Earth – The Wedding Oak in San Saba,Texas. For centuries, under the shade of this tree, marriage ceremonies have taken place. Love under a tree, and love of trees. It's part of our story on National Geographic Digital News "See 10 Remarkable Trees, Each With a Special Story to Tell”. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/04/remarkable-trees-earth-day-pictures/ More of our Wise Trees project will be published next year. Stay tuned. @natgeo @cookjenshel @nageocreative @thephotosociety #NatgeoEarthDay #EarthDay #WiseTrees #trees4earth
Image by @beverlyjoubert for #NatGeoEarthDay. A reminder this #EarthDay of the beauty and wonder of wild landscapes. These habitats are disappearing rapidly as human populations grow and develop. Wildlife numbers are falling and ecosystems changing. We need reminders of just how quickly our species is able to completely change an environment. For myself and @dereckjoubert, every day is Earth Day and we will continue to work to protect the species and environments which surround us and make our own existence possible.
Mosi-oa Tunya, or #VictoriaFalls, claims the title of largest #waterfall in the world despite the fact that it is neither the highest nor widest. It claims this title because its unique dimensions give it the world’s largest single sheet of falling water. The deafening noise and the spray of mist spreads for miles around, and it’s no wonder that its name means, “The Smoke that Thunders”. Photo by @anniegriffithsphotography. #natgeoearthday #earthday
Photo by @haarbergphoto (Erlend Haarberg) In the last decades, the number of guillemots (Uria aalge) has decreased drastically along the Norwegian coast and they are not able to raise their young due to lack of food. Fortunately, their population on Hornøya is still stable. When a bird of prey visits the colony, a flock of birds flies up into the sky. They circle in the air for a couple of minutes and when the danger is over, land on the cliffs again. This scene fills me with wonder and gives me hope for the future of this beautiful Planet.

Read the Nat Geo piece on the new tiger numbers by Sharon Guynup http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/04/160420-tigers-conservation-trafficking-world-wildlife-fund-panthera/ Earth Day on April 22 celebrates our planet and the life that it provides for all living things. Though we have humans often forget that without the vital necessities our planet gives us we would no longer survive. The air we breathe the water we drink is all here for us every moment of every day. Though we take it for granted as we do the natural systems which provide these life giving elements. The oceans and forests give us the air we breathe. 50% of our oxygen comes from forest – the other 50% from the oceans.Though we cut down the forests and pollute and remove the creatures which keep our seas in balance. 75% of our fresh water comes from forests and grasslands. forest which pull carbon from the atmosphere and slow climate change and give homes to the creatures which live within. Including some of my favorite animals big cats. Here are 2 tiger cubs drinking at a waterhole. #NatgeoEarthDay @natgeo @stevewinterphoto @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #bigcatsforever #ivoryfree #wildaid #bigcatsforever #ngwild
Earth Day photo from Jim Richardson @JimRichardsonNG, a fellow traveler on this island of life in the outer reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy. This view was taken from inside the arm of our spiral galaxy, and looks into the heart of the galaxy where a black hole resides (just to the left of this cactus in Arizona.). Our home. Nice place. We should probably take care of it. Happy Earth Day. Want to have your #EarthDay photo published on NatGeo.com<http://natgeo.com/>?
