Photo by @luisadorr | lola is 10 years old and originally from ethiopia. she was adopted by a valencian family and has been dressing up as a fallera since she was two. she decided to run for fallera mayor infantil this year and, although it’s not something parents can force on their children, as it involves a lot of extra work and stress on top of normal school work, lola’s mother was supportive of her. •

Photo by @acacia.johnson | a grizzly bear waits for salmon at brooks falls, alaska. brooks camp, in alaska's katmai national park, is a wild bear sanctuary accessible to the public, making bear viewing possible in a safe and controlled way that respects and protects the animals (it's even wheelchair accessible!). this bear population is currently threatened by the proposed pebble mine project, which could destroy this remarkable salmon habitat.

Photo by @mishkusk (michaela skovranova) | just a few metres underwater at one of the last remaining australian sea lion colonies, i got to share beautiful moments with the local sea lions. i would drop down underwater where he was resting and stay as long as i could. we are both utilising our mammalian dive reflex - an evolutionary trait we both share. australian sea lions breathe oxygen, just like us. they talk to each other, tease each other and collaborate with each other. unfortunately, the australian sea lion is one of the rarest seals in the world suffering from threats such as entanglement, marine debris and habitat destruction. the challenges ocean creatures face are incredibly complex, however, we now more than ever have an opportunity to learn and explore different options. we have access to information and many of us are fortunate enough to be able to make choices which allow us to move through this world in a more conscious way.

Photo by @amaraeno | ”i guess... you’re compared to a couple – families where there’s two parents. it wouldn’t be frowned upon if a mum was to stay at home but if you’re single parent staying at home, it’s sort of like you have no business staying at home, you should go and work. but then at the same time, you go and work, and it’s just a struggle because there’s nothing – there’s no provisions in place for people to go and work when there’s no childcare. and childcare costs too much.” from “the 25 percent” – harriet and her daughter in london, uk, march 2018. harriet became pregnant with her daughter at the age of 17, but against those odds, she went on to pursue a full-time university degree while still raising her daughter more or less on her own. harriet feels that education about the realities of young parenthood is something that needs to be taught in schools and she therefore spends her own time running these types of workshops for 14-21 year olds in schools around london.
