#EarthCapture by @davesandfordphotos The three bears. Polar bear cubs can stay with their mothers for up to 30 months, depending on her for survival for much of that time. These three look as though they've just had their fill! . . . . . #polarbear #bear #cub #baby #babyanimals #bearcub #arctic #snow #ice #glacier #food #happy #happiness #animals #wildlife #wildlifephotography #bbcearth #planetearth #earth #earthlovers #nature_brilliance #wonderfulplaces #amazinganimals #animallovers #nature #naturelovers #travelhappy #travelphotography
#EarthCapture by @kinginstreets7 Three tiger cubs play fighting in Tipeshwar Wildlife Sanctuary, India. Though fully equipped to hunt at around 18 months old, tigers will stay with their mothers for around two and a half years old, relying on her to provide for much of that time. . . . . . #tigers #bigcats #cats #catsofinstagram #cute #animals #babyanimals #babytiger #india #asia #indianwildlife #safari #jungle #forest #bbcearth #earth #planetearth #earthlovers #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography

#EarthCapture by @georgetheexplorer Meerkats are the ultimate survivors. They thrive in some of the world's most hostile environments, where daytime temperatures can reach 50c by day and freeze overnight. Incredibly, they don't even drink water and instead absorb it from their prey - primarily insects - an amazing desert adaptation. This particular colony is one of two groups habituated on the edge of the Nwetwe Pan in Botswana, right outside Jack's Camp. Researchers and film crews from all over the world have visited these babies' ancestors, making them a very famous family! Sadly, recent reports have stated that the global meerkat population hangs in the balance, with a new scientific model giving them about 50 years before the species faces complete extinction in the wild due to the impacts of climate change. . . . . . #africa #meerkat #animals #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #bbcearth #earth #planetearth #earthwonder #nature_briiliance #amazingplaces #wonderfulplaces #amazinganimals #climatechange #extinction #conservation #animallovers #cute #baby #babyanimals #naturephotography #liveauthentic #savetheplanet
The fast fashion industry is one of the world’s biggest polluters. How can we look towards a more sustainable future?
#EarthCapture by @reto_boltshauser A wild chameleon at Lake Bunyonyi in southern Uganda. There are 203 species described as of 2015, coming in a range of colours, many with the ability to change colour. The lizards are easily recognisable by their specialised feet, tongues, mobile eyes and prehensile tails. . . . . . #lizard #uganda #africa #bbcearth #planetearth #earth #travel #eastafrica #travelafrica #traveluganda #animals #animallovers #wildlife #wildlife_seekers #wildlifeshots #nature_brilliance #amazingplaces #wonderfulplaces #colorful #liveauthentic #wildanimal
#EarthCapture by @annastelloophotography One cheeky red fox in the Netherlands! 🦊 The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is the largest of the true foxes and one of the most widely distributed carnivores. The species has a long history of association with humans, having been extensively hunted as a pest and furbearer for many centuries, as well as being represented in human folklore and mythology. Too small to pose a threat to humans, it has extensively benefited from the presence of human habitation, and has successfully colonised many suburban and urban areas. Domestication of the red fox is also underway in Russia, and has resulted in the domesticated red fox. . . . . . #fox #redfox #netherlands #animals #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlife_seekers #nature #bbcearth #naturelovers #naturephotography #mammal #cute #travelphotography #happiness
Banding migratory birds is incredibly important in tracking the health of individuals and populations. The birds are caught in soft nets and the whole process usually takes less than five minutes! Head over to our Story to find out about migrating birds in Vancouver Island, Canada. These photos are: Male Anna’s hummingbird, Wilson’s warbler and female Anna’s hummingbird #EarthCapture by @connelbradwell
#EarthCapture by @shaazjung 'It’s been a decade since we christened him Scarface, a decade since I had my first encounter with Boor. Between these trees, I’ve witnessed the making of two iconic leopards. Their timeless journey signifies how insignificant change is in a forest that remains resolute. Ten years have passed and here they were, still creating life on ancient trees, still as deft as the summer breeze.' . . . . . #leopard #bigcat #cats #catsofinstagram #animals #happiness #forest #jungle #india #asia #indianwildlife #catlovers #animallovers #wildlife #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_shot #bbcearth #liveauthentic #neverstopexploring #conservation #rainforest

#EarthCapture by @mariospshot A robin in the snow in Spain. These hardy birds, which don't migrate to warmer climates for winter put up with snow and cold, but have to eat a lot of food every day to just stay alive. . . . . . #robin #robinredbreast #spain #bird #birdlovers #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #snow #winter #seasons #berry #happiness #cute #animals #best_birds_of_ig #birdsofinstagram #bbcearth #liveauthentic
