After 25 years of work, one of the greatest wilderness conservation success stories in history came to fruition — and photographer Jimmy Chin (@jimmy_chin) was there to document it. Tompkins Conservation, a wilderness protection organization founded by Kris Tompkins and the late Doug Tompkins, made the largest private-to-public land donation in history. The one million acres (405,000 hectares) of land donated by the Tompkins, along with the 10 million (4,050,00 hectares) pledged by the Chilean government, will create five new national parks and expand three others in Chile. “It’s incredibly beautiful terrain and landscapes — coastline, rainforest, glaciated mountains,” says Jimmy, who spent time exploring the vast, now-protected land during the official signing of the agreement between Kris and Chilean president Michelle Bachelet in March. “Kris and Doug were so passionate about this land and understood its value — not for utilitarian, human needs, but its inherent value to exist on this planet,” says Jimmy. “Humans are so anthropocentric; we think about how things fulfill our needs. But wilderness is above that. It’s beyond us.” #EarthDay 🌎 Photo by @jimmy_chin

At 16 years old, Morgan Hipworth (@bistromorgan) has dreamed up over 2,000 doughnut flavors and opened his own shop, Bistro Morgan, in Windsor, Australia. Unlike most entrepreneurs dealing with the demands of their first business, Morgan is also a full-time high school student. “One of the biggest challenges is time management, managing my time inside of school and getting as much homework as I can done,” he says. “I’m always working around that.” But seeing people take a big bite or shoot one of Morgan’s signature syringes of filling — a concept he created to stand out — is worth the energy and effort. “Food plays such an active part in people’s lives,” says Morgan. “It can determine their mood or how their day is going. I love being a part of that.” #MadeToCreate Watch Morgan make some of his signature creations right now on our Instagram story! Photo by @bistromorgan
“I was curious to know what drove people to fight against their neighbors,” says photojournalist Nicole Tung (@nicoletung), who started covering conflict in 2011 amid revolutions in North Africa. More recently, she’s documented the mass displacement of civilians as Iraqi forces battled to retake Mosul from the Islamic State and the daily violence faced by residents of Aleppo, Syria. Nicole covers combat zones, but her focus is on how war affects the most vulnerable, bringing sensitivity and context to fast-changing and dire situations. “You have to show the reality and also not make it this horrible exposé, dramatic thing — which it is,” she says, “but I don’t want it to be sensational.” Today in Washington, D.C., the International Women’s Media Foundation (@theiwmf) is recognizing Nicole’s work with an honorable mention for the Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award.

It took Amy Corson (@amy_corson) a few tries at setting a timer on her camera and hopping under the covers to get a shot she liked, but the playful result was worth the effort. “Good mornings and coffee are pretty synonymous,” she says. “You can’t have one without the other.” #WHPgoodmorning Follow along to see more of our favorite submissions to last weekend’s hashtag project.
