Photo @coreyrichproductions | Hard work works harder than luck—especially when you’ve gotten unlucky. Here is a photo of French climber Mike Fuselier (@mikefuselier) taking down an amazing karst roof in China back in 2007. In 2015, Mike took a bad 60-foot fall in Turkey and shattered his feet, nearly losing them. In a blog post, he wrote, "As I began to understand the seriousness of my injuries and what this meant for the future, two clear choices seemed available to me. One, I could just give up and accept the situation as is. Or two, I could immediately put together a battle plan, knowing that I was in for a long period of recovery and rehabilitation.” A year and a half after his accident, he was back to climbing 8c. He wrote, "Life offered me a second chance and with support from so many people I will give it my best.” Thanks for the inspiration, Mike, and glad to see you’re back to doing what you love!

As Earth Day 2019 winds down, we should remember that the 30 million species our planet is currently home for today is less than 1 percent of all the species that have ever lived since Life first appeared on Earth 3.8 billion years ago. Even though we are a little blip on the Earth’s massive timeline, we are the current stewards of the planet and are responsible for it’s resources. We should be approaching everyday like it’s Earth Day, and work on not disrupting the harmony of the planet and all it’s inhabitants with our heavy footprint.

Video by @ladzinski // A cold #sunrise and high winds over the big one: Mount #everest. Happy #earthday everyone! #followme@ladzinski to see my documentary footage of my teammates, #natgeo explorer and photographer @coryrichards and his partner @estebantopomena, as they attempt a new route on Everest, without the use of supplemental oxygen nor porter support. #adventure#mountains#climbing#alpinism#photography
Photo by @mikelibecki#earthday today and EVERYDAY! Let’s all yell it loud and use our collective voice and images to speak for/with our planet that will help inspire actions with/of integrity to/for our Mother 🌏! This polar bear was swimming just below the surface of the ocean in East Greenland. Can you see the ‘eye’ in the water just above his head? I like to think it’s the Earth looking back with emotion. I hope photos like this help to be a voice for them and our natural world to remind us of the importance to make better choices and the discipline to be consistent. The time is now.

That’s why cave explorers try to make it as simple and straightforward as possible so that they can spend as much time carrying out the scientific studies and mapping the newly discovered world. This photograph shows a team of cave explorers and scientists negotiating a cave beneath the Hintertux glacier in Austria called Spannagelhöhle.
Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio // Sponsored by @makersmark // To visualize the receding Lewis Glacier on Mount Kenya, I dragged a basket of fire along the glacier’s previous boundaries at night and used a very long camera exposure. Fire represents the primordial element that first provided a gathering point for human culture and now, through the burning of fossil fuels, a rapidly changing climate. The flame line shows the location of the glacier's snout in 1987. The doomed glacier has since receded about 120 meters and will disappear entirely in my lifetime. // This Earth Day, @makersmark is on a mission to remove 75,000 pounds of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways.

Photo by @katieorlinsky // Sponsored by @makersmark // In August 2017 I was lucky enough to join the crew of SeilNorge on a sailing adventure that circumnavigated Svalbard, Norway. Svalbard is an archipelago that lies between mainland Norway and the North Pole, with the majority of its 15-million-plus acres composed of vast, untouched wilderness. At the moment I made this image, we were celebrating reaching 80 degrees north, paddle boarding, swimming in our bright orange safety suits, and, of course, taking photos. Every day the sea ice vanishes, glaciers retreat, wild animals lose more of their natural habitats, and frozen oceans melt into waterways in the Arctic due to climate change, and more people want to see it all before it’s gone. Tourism is growing in what was once an isolated, inhospitable region braved only by a few intrepid explorers. Sailing is the most sustainable way to explore the Arctic’s fragile seas and experience one of the last pristine places on the planet. // This Earth Day, @makersmark is on a mission to remove 75,000 pounds of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways.

Photo by @tobyharriman // Sponsored by @makersmark // The first time I visited Alaska, I was awestruck. Seeing the vast landscapes and some of the most incredible mountain ranges I have witnessed, I couldn’t get enough of it. I moved there a couple years later. This specific shot and highlight moment was when I was kayaking through glacier caves in Valdez, Alaska. That was an unexpected treat and an experience I’ll never forget. Surrounded by this beauty, I thought about how we are causing these places to change and possibly disappear forever. // This Earth Day, @makersmark is on a mission to remove 75,000 pounds of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways.

Photo by @donaldmiralle // Happy Earth Day!!! 🌎 A stingray flying under clouds and water, Mo’orea Tahiti. Just as the largest animals on top of the food chain are dependent on some of the smallest organisms on the bottom, so are the mountains, the oceans, the air and everything in between inner-connected. And our footprint we leave behind, had big or small effects on everything. To put things in perspective, if the entire 4.5 billion year history of the Earth was compressed into a 12 month calendar year, the extinction of the dinosaurs occurred on December 25th and the industrial revolution occurred in the last split second of the final second of the final day of the year! While we’ve accomplished much in our short existence, it shows the importance of our responsibility as caretakers for the only planet we live on right now and the negative effects of humans on Earth that cannot be understated. Let’s all do our best to leave behind a sustainable society that gives our children and their children a chance to enjoy this beautiful blue planet that we’ve been on for a relatively short time.

Photos @coreyrichproductions | As was reported this week (see @andrewbisharat’s two stories on @natgeo online) my good friend David Lama (@davidlama_official) is no longer with us. He died in in an avalanche alongside Jess Roskelley and Hansjoerg Auer last week on Howse Peak in Banff National Park, Canada. This trio represents some of the most talented and strong mountaineers in the world. The older I get, the list of really good friends who are no longer with us gets bigger. It’s a brutal reality of our sport. Nobody is immune to the inherent dangers of big mountains. They can give so much joy and inspiration—and they can take it all away in an instant. Even if you’re like David, and among the most experienced and calculating people I’ve ever met. David is a guy who I’ve spent a lot of time with, from Pakistan to Patagonia, Europe to Lebanon. There was no such thing as a half-assed adventure with David; it was always a full-ticket ride. Trango Tower, Cerro Torre, and Lebanon’s Baatara Gorge represented some of our more far-flung adventures, but even visiting David in his home in Austria was full-on. We’d go do a photo shoot in the mountains surrounding his home, and it involved using eBikes, bivvying along the way, and hiding from ranchers with guns. I was always amazed how David could transition from extreme skiing, to climbing snow and ice on an expedition for a month, then return home and make 5.14 rock climbs look silly and easy. He was so graceful and talented, and unquestionably one of the most elite, all-around climbers of all time. David packed a lot of adventures, friends, and experiences into his short 28 years. He was fun, innocent, innovative, and extraordinarily talented. David, I’m already missing you! See you on the other side, my friend. My deepest condolences to David’s parents Claudia and Rinzi, and to the friends and families of Jess Roskelley and Hansjoerg Auer.
