This giant of the African forest is the tree of life, supporting everything from the largest mammals to the tiniest creatures. I especially love #LookingUp and seeing them in Botswana, where Frans Lanting has taken this beautiful picture.” –Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex @sussexroyal
Frans’s photograph was taken on Kubu Island in Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana.
Please keep sharing your own #LookingUp images from your own community, and at the end of the day The Duke will be sharing some of his favourites on @sussexroyal Instagram stories.
Today, The Duke of Sussex @sussexroyal is guest-editing the @natgeo feed, in an effort to raise awareness around Queens Commonwealth Canopy, in which almost 50 countries have dedicated indigenous forest for conservation or have committed to planting millions of new trees to combat climate change.
The images being posted today are all ‘looking up’ at trees from below to highlight the vital role trees play in the Earth’s ecosystem. Post your images of trees, add #lookingup, and at the end of the day, The Duke will share a selection of images that you post from across the world on @sussexroyal Instagram stories
