Have an epic weekend mates. We know @stevewinterphoto is! 🤗 #friyay ・・・ I've been in a remote part of the Peruvian Amazon shooting Ashaninka shamans with my assistant @alexbraczkowski and @natgeo scientist @andresruzo for my worldwide jaguar story (December 2017). We've been on the banks of what is believed to be the worlds largest thermal river, the boiling river. It is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen and gets to nearly 100 degrees celsius in many parts of its length. Local medicinal healers in this region revere jaguars as an important animal and part of the jungle and their culture of healing. Go to www.boilingriver.org to find out more about this incredible place and follow @andresruzo to see his incredible science work on this river! @natgeo @stevewinterphoto @reddigitalcinema #instagood #wildplaces #peru #amazon #startwith1thing #instawild #videooftheday #inthefield #bigcatsintiative #jaguar #redcine

Perfect camouflage! I almost missed the second one peeking over the other's back 😁 #Repost @stevewinterphoto ・・・ @stevewinterphoto I am working on a @natgeo Jaguar story in the Pantanal of Brazil. Here is a curious cub in front and mom behind. 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. “Stop the demand and 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 - moms play with their kids - like this mom and cub. 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.

😴💤💕 #Repost @stevewinterphoto ・・・ @natgeo @stevewinterphoto I took this photograph of American flamingos roosting in the full moon at the Rio Lagartos Biosphere Reserve on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This incredible wetland area is one of the world's most unique wetlands because of its hypersalinity. The flamingos come here in great numbers to feed, nest and reproduce and more than 43 000 have been counted on the broader Yucatan coast. This wetland, mangrove and forest area is protected because of the flamingo - so everything ABOVE the water - like the jaguars, iguanas and birds and BELOW the water - the mangroves, fish, rays, dolphins, and nesting sea turtles are all protected because of this amazing RED bird!! Visit Rio Legatos today to catch these flamingos and other incredible wildlife! Catch me on National Geographic Channel this Sunday 9 July at 8PM (EDT) to see me filming amazing wildlife in Brazil as part of @natgeochannel Earth Live hosted by @janelynchofficial #followme @stevewinterphoto to see more images from my work with @natgeo and Thanks!! @stevewinterphoto @reddigitalcinema @natgeo @nglive #nglive @natgeochannel @natgeowild @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #fursforlife#BCI#bigcatsintiative #startwith1thing @pantheracats @pantanalsafaris #canonusa #redcine @africanparksnetwork #flamingo #ldfoundation @leonardodicaprio @sanctuaryasia @bertiegregory

Vídeo de Steve Winter @stevewinterphoto // "Para o alto e além! Tenho fotografado guepardos no coração da província sul-africana de Free State com meu assistente @alexbraczkowski. Novas pesquisas lideradas por Sarah Durant e colegas sugerem que restam apenas 7100 guepardos na África. Para que suas populações sobrevivam, eles precisam de boa proteção dentro de parques nacionais para compensar a perda em áreas povoadas onde eles entram em confronto com fazendeiros. Todos sabem que os guepardos são excelentes caçadores. Estes dois machos, juntos com mais uma fêmea, comeram, sozinhos, 80 antílopes bonteboques, quase 100 cabras-de-leque e alguns antílopes gondongas em apenas cinco meses! Siga @stevewinterphoto para ver mais imagens incríveis de grandes felinos como estes." Repost @natgeo
#Repost @stevewinterphoto ・・・ @natgeo @stevewinterphoto Life as a lion cub can sometimes be tough! Did you know that young lions like this one sometimes get killed by adult males, which want to mate with their mothers! This process is known as infanticide and happens in everything from chimpanzees to langurs, and is also a big trait in wild cats! To stop males from killing their cubs females will often fight, growl at and scratch males which want to kill or evict their cubs from the pride. If this doesn’t work they may become temporary nomads and move into a new area for a period! Big cats like this young African lion have fascinated me for over 25 years since my first jaguar story for @natgeo magazine. It is our responsibility to give the next generation of big cats a fighting chance in the wild. National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop lion-cattle conflict and monitoring big cats numbers with camera traps. Visit https://www.nationalgeographic.org/projects/big-cats-initiative/ to find out how you can help save big cats today, and remember by saving apex predators like lions and tigers we keep ecosystems balanced and healthy!

#Repost @natgeo (@get_repost) ・・・ @natgeo @stevewinterphoto Cheetah cubs with mom behind them. Cheetah’s, the world’s fastest land animal are losing numbers rapidly. There are only 7,100 left in the wild. Habitat loss is the #1 reason for the decline. Also hunting of their food, and turning wilderness into agriculture or livestock production. The pet trade is also a factor. 2/3 of the cheetah population live outside protected areas as cheetahs need to roam. These areas need to be friendly to wildlife with prey species protected for these predators - or we face a world without these magnificent creatures. Scientists desire the cheetah to be re-classified as endangered, which will help them. The Forests and Grasslands where they live provide all living creatures with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans provide the rest. And Forests and Grasslands give us 75% of the fresh water we need to live. 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 cheetah, 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. National Geographic launched the Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and implement change to the dire situation facing big cats.

Mother and Cub - c.2011 - @stevewinterphoto captures a tender moment between a mother tiger and her cub at Bandhavgarh National​ Park, India. The wary three-month-old cub briefly investigated Winter's intrusion before timidly ducking back behind his mother. This iconic image has been published in National Geographic magazine in 2011 and again in the 2013 book "Tigers Forever". For the last 20 years, award-winning photographer Steve Winter, has used his imagery to raise awareness of the endangerment of the world’s “big cats."

@Regrann from @stevewinterphoto - @natgeo @stevewinterphoto I'm working on a worldwide jaguar story for @natgeo (catch it in the December 2017 issue) and much of my time has been spent in the Brazilian Pantanal with @bertiegregory. Jaguars here are incredibly relaxed and can often be seen along the riverbank and even like this young cub, in trees! This cub would climb up the tree to avoid the wild peccaries below! Big cats like this jaguar are important for the healthy functioning of ecosystems and they regulate prey densities which can have impacts on vegetation and soil - so by keeping jaguars healthy we can keep the whole ecosystem healthy! #follow me @stevewinterphoto for more photographs and videos of big cats and wild places. @natgeo @natgeocreative @natgeowild @reddigitalcinema #canonusa #jaguars #bigcatsforlife #wildlifephotojournalism #videooftheday #instawild #instagood #startwith1thing #bigcatsintiative - #regrann
From @stevewinterphoto - @natgeo @stevewinterphoto Here's a shot I took of a spotted hyena in South Africa's Timbavati while on assignment for @natgeo magazine while working on a worldwide leopard story (December 2015). While trying to get a shot of a female leopard and her two cubs this hyena triggered my camera! The Timbavati is an important refuge for species like this hyena, lions and leopards which are facing increasing pressure from poaching and conflict with livestock farmers across much of sub-Saharan Africa. In all the reserve and its neighbouring properties comprise an area of 1 800 square kilometres and this connects to the massive Kruger National Park (19 485 square kilometres)! We need to find pragmatic solutions for human-wildlife conflict and the bushmeat crisis in Africa. By saving big cats and other large carnivores we can save entire ecosystems. National Geographic's Big Cat Initiative is leading the way in developing tools to help people and large carnivores co-exist in harmony.
