Knock knock, it’s World Penguin Day! The annual migration of Adélie penguins is here. They individually migrate north to have better access to food during the winter months. Researchers noticed the Adélie penguins began this migration specifically on this day, April 25th. Good luck little ones! #WorldPenguinDay ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #earthcapture #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery #nature #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #discoverocean #roamtheoceans #discoverearth #antarctica #WildlifeiG #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #lr_wild #birdsonearth #birds_private #best_birds_of_ig #bird_brilliance at Antarctica

The magpie is a common bird, and in my surroundings not a very popular one. But they are one of the most intelligent animals in the world. Did you know they are not just black and white? Their wings and tail have different shades of blue, most visible in direct sunlight #whpplanetearth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #discovery #earthcapture #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery #lonelyplanet #nature #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #tentree #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #wildernessculture #discoverearth #visit #wildlifeplanet #lr_wild #birdsonearth #birds_private #best_birds_of_ig at Planet Earth

Shout out to all the moms, human or animal. This Gentoo penguin mom needs to protect her babies from rain and cold, birds of prey who think a penguin baby (or even the egg) taste good, and make sure they get enough food. #whpsheinspiresme ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #earthcapture #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery #lonelyplanet #nature #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #tentree #tlpicks #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #discoverocean #roamtheoceans #wildernessculture #discoverearth #WildlifeiG #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #beyondthelands_ at South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands

Today it’s World Whale Day and I would like to take the opportunity to emphasize the importance of respecting the giants of the ocean. Rising sea temperatures, oil drilling, fishing, tourism... it’s not looking good for the whales. Show them your respect by eliminating or reducing your meat (and fish!) consumption, or preferably ditch all animal products, avoid plastic as much as possible, participate in beach clean-ups, support ocean conservation initiatives like @sealegacy - there’s so much we can do ourselves. #WHPUpToMe and I would like to introduce #WHPConservation to raise awareness for our oceans and planet 💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #earthcapture #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkscenery #lonelyplanet #nature #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #tentree #tlpicks #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #discoverocean #roamtheoceans #wildernessculture #discoverearth #norge #mittnorge #norway #turningthetide at Norway

Grocery shopping on a Saturday/summer festivals/tulip season in The Netherlands be like: get in line! On South Georgia Island every day is like this. And it makes for a pretty cool burst of color #whpcolorwheel ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #earthcapture #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery #lonelyplanet #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #tentree #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #discoverocean #roamtheoceans #wildernessculture #discoverearth #WildlifeiG #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #nikonnl at South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands

Happy Penguin Awareness Day! What’s better than to meet the locals (in this case: a Chinstrap penguin) when traveling? There are 18 different penguin species, many are threatened or endangered. #WHPwanderlust ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery #lonelyplanet #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #tentree #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #wildernessculture #discoverearth #visualsofearth #penguinawarenessday #discoverocean #roamtheoceans #WildlifeiG #wildlifeplanet #antarctica #nikonnl at Antarctica

Goodbye dad. Last few weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions, but my dad found the peace he desired. He really liked this photo, and it’s one of my greatest memories. One day, we’ll meet again on the other side. Have a good trip up there dad ♥️ #WHPwanderlust ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery #lonelyplanet #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #tentree #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #wildernessculture #discoverearth #visualsoflife #discoverocean #roamtheoceans #nikonnl #antarctica #antarcticambassadors #visualsofearth #turningthetide at Antarctica

Apart from my wish that my loved ones (and myself) will live in good health for the upcoming year, there’s one other thing I sort of (but not completely have influence on) have set as a goal for 2019. There’s already a hint in this photo. This is Esperanza Base, an all year-round Argentine research station in Hope Bay, Antarctica. But although they are really important - my goal is not related to a research station. I hope to buy a cute small house with vintage details, and a garden with a tree and full of plants to make a little paradise for insects, butterflies and birds. Did you set any goals? #whpresolutions2019 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel @bbcearth #earthpix #earthfocus #lensbible #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery #lonelyplanet #ourlonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #tentree #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #wildernessculture #discoverearth #vol10k #visualsofearth #wegdromer #antarctica #nikonnl at Esperanza Base, Antarctica
