  • Crossing Over: National Geographic photographer Lynn Johnson shares the intimate moments between a dying woman and her family in the final days of her life.
  • A Woman’s Epic Journey to Climb 7 Mountains—Shot on a Phone: Scale the Seven Summits through a reflective character portrait of National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Wasfia Nazreen, shot entirely on an iPhone.
  • A Ghost in the Making: Natural history photographer Clay Bolt tells the story of America’s 4,000 species of native bees and answers the question: Why save a species?
  • In Search of Zots: Meet two rare species of Vampire bat—the new inhabitants of the ruins of a lost Mayan civilization—with University of Mexico Professor of Ecology Rodrigo Medellin and National Geographic photographer Anand Varma.
  • Elk River: Scientist Arthur Middleton, photographer Joe Riis, artist James Prosek, and filmmaker Jenny Nichols trek from Wyoming’s rangeland through snowy mountain passes and treacherous river crossings to the rugged beauty of Yellowstone’s high-alpine meadows to capture the migration pattern of elk.
