Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | Border: The San Juan River snakes through the desert, separating Utah and Arizona, and historically the Navajo from the Ute. Today, it creates the northern border of the Navajo Reservation, which is reported to be facing the highest number of COVID-19 cases per capita in the U.S. This part of the world is near and dear to me, as its geology and painted desert are like nothing I’ve seen anywhere else. The Colorado Plateau and all its arid wonders create so many of the iconic landscapes we love, like the Grand Canyon and more.

To learn how you can help the Navajo and other tribal communities, check out @grandcanyontrust or the link in my bio. I’ll soon be offering a flash photo sale to help, and my film #IntotheCanyon will screen online May 29-30 with Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival, with proceed portions going to help as well. Stay tuned. #support #navajo #covid19 #fineart #aerial.

Photos by @carltonward | During my last assignment before the lockdown, I rode horseback alongside the cowboys of Buck Island Ranch, together with writer @douglas_main (3rd photo). We learned from sixth- and seventh-generation Florida ranchers Gene and Laurent Lollis about challenges ranchers face in Florida. Buck Island is a research ranch owned by @archboldstation, and Gene is the incoming president of @flcattlemen. Like many ranchers I meet, Gene is cautious but optimistic about the return of Florida panthers to the species’ historic range in the northern Everglades, where development pressure on remaining open land threatens panthers and ranchers alike. In the Greater Everglades ecosystem, one of the most important things we can do to save the Florida Wildlife Corridor and a path to recovery for the Florida panther is to give ranches and other working agricultural lands viable alternatives to development. Please follow @carltonward for more. @pathofthepanther @insidenatgeo @fl_wildcorridor @ilcp_photographers #ranch #Florida #KeepFLWild.

Photo by @amytoensing | Walking and running in the park near our home has been essential during quarantine. Last week, I came across dancers in elegant costumes, floating among the trees and over the grassy knolls. They were from our local ballet company Syracuse City Ballet (@syracusecityballet), and were filming online educational content for kids in the time of COVID–another unexpected moment of beauty and hope in very strange times. #cityparks #timeofcovid #ballet.

Photo by @amivitale | A young elephant calf seeks shelter under his mother in the Singita Grumeti Reserves, a conservatory adjacent to Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Singita Grumeti Reserves are an integral part of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, home of the great migration. Young calves go under their mothers for a feeling of protection and comfort and, of course, to nurse.  #singitagrumetifund @natgeoimagecollection #elephants #saveelephants #stoppoaching #tanzania.

Photo by @lucalocatelliphoto | This futuristic vertical farming company is housed in a repurposed steel mill warehouse in one of New Jersey’s busiest industrial districts. The aim is to sustainably grow fresh vegetables in the shadow of New York City, while educating the community about nutrition. The reusable substrate on which seeds are laid is a patented cloth made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Stacked in racks, the cloth is misted, which conserves water—it uses 95% less than what would be required in a field. 
Another goal for the facility is to reduce food waste by optimizing production based on demand and to eliminate extraneous parts of the distribution chain. It is estimated that almost 30% of the food production inside the U.S. is wasted—but technology could change that. As a photographer, my work revolves around this transition humanity is facing as we look for new ways to live in the future.

Video by @bertiegregory | A pod of spinner dolphins rests in the shallow waters of Sataya Reef, in the Red Sea. These dolphins use the "flat" water created by the reef to rest and play during the day. Sleeping involves shutting down half the brain at a time. This allows them to breathe and look out for predators during naps. At night they head out to hunt in the open ocean, when their prey is nearer the surface.

Photo by Muhammed Muheisen @mmuheisen | Anas, a 2.5-year-old Syrian refugee I photographed a couple of months ago, is held by his father, who wrapped him in his coat to shield him from the wind. Recently I spoke on the phone with a family living in this tented settlement in Jordan, and most of the conversation was about the coronavirus and how scared and vulnerable they and the people surrounding them feel.

Be safe, be kind, stay home, and keep positive. We are all in this together. For more photos and videos of the refugee crisis, follow me @mmuheisen @mmuheisenpublic. For more on how to get involved, follow @everydayrefugees #muhammedmuheisen #everydayrefugees #COVID19 #Staysafe.

Photo by Stephen Alvarez @salvarezphoto | The Oldham Theater in Winchester, Tennessee: I shot this photo on my way to get a COVID-19 test last week. Rural areas like this one, where I live, have largely been spared the ravages seen in northern Italy, Spain, or New York City. The pain and suffering of this pandemic are spread unequally. The marquee on the shuttered theater in Winchester reflects how strange the last 60-plus days have been: Life here does very much seem like a movie..

Photo by @paoloverzone | Due to the pandemic, the Cannes Film Festival In France did not take place this May—for the first time in over 70 years. During last year's event, I had the pleasure to photograph director Quentin Tarantino, who was there presenting his latest movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” The session lasted less than five minutes, and he was very focused, It was a true pleasure to take this portrait.

Photo by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder | A helicopter flies over a landscape of wind turbines in the Mojave Desert in Kern County, California, one of the country’s densest concentrations of renewable energy. The solar and wind industries have grown rapidly and now power millions of homes. Yet they still produce less than 10 percent of all electricity in the United States. 
Please have a look at “The Road to 2070” in the April 2020 issue of National Geographic, which marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
