“But what exactly is a safari camp?” one might ask. To that, tech mogul and overall venture specialist Richard Branson has answered with an immersive new way to experience the Motorogi Conservancy in Kenya. Dubbed the Mahali Mzuri, the camp is actually comprised of 20 elevated suites, each specially designed for minimal interference with the surrounding bush landscape. The structures most closely resemble luxury tents, and include amenities like on-site infinity pools and spa treatments alongside guided tours of the rolling plains. A collaboration between Kenyan architecture firm byDesign and interior furnishing experts Real Studios, the Mahali Mzuri was created to accommodate up to 24 people at a time – a small enough number for an engaging, yet serene getaway.

Guys Base Jump Off the World Trade Center

Screen-Shot-2014-03-24-at-8.50.33-PM-660x787

The only way this video could be cooler was if the guy was a master thief (who only takes from awful, Captain Planet-esque bad guys) and was making a daring escape after stealing a priceless piece of art. Apparently, they were caught and arrested within the last week (six months after the jump) and charged with “burglary, reckless endangerment and jumping from a structure.” But all in all, just CRAZY.

Shark Attacks diver in the Cayman Islands

03-shark_attack

Caribbean Reef Shark encounter in the CAYMAN ISLANDS. Just east of Frank Sound. We were Lion Fish Culling when the shark came out of no ware. It scared the crap out of me. Filmed on my GoPro 3 camera. We were in about 70′ of water when the shark encounter occurred.

I want to make it clear that I am hunting lion fish to help protect the reef from the destruction that they cause. The shark was acting in his natural environment. I have no ill will toward him and will get back in the water and continue to protect the reef for future generations. I would strongly encourage anyone out there to donate to REEF.org or other organizations to help protect our reefs, Sharks and the beautiful creatures in them.

The Selexyz Dominicanen Bookstore

The Selexyz Dominicanen in the Netherlands is an outrageously cool bookstore that was converted from a church that was originally built in 1294. With the growth of Kindle and the iPad, we won’t be seeing too many bookstores for too much longer, so it’s pretty awesome to have few around the globe that are as gorgeous as a great novel.

Photographer since 2006.

In my opinion, there are two ways of capturing the world for a photographer; on the one hand grasping its horror, and on the other sublimating it. I have chosen the second. More specifically, I like the way rain, snow and “bad weather” awaken a feeling of romantic fiction within me, mainly in the big cities. (climatic excesses are another topic).
I see these elements as a fabulous ground for photography, an under-used visual universe with a strong evocative power, and with a richness of subtle lights. This universe escapes most of us, since we are too occupied getting undercover. Man becomes a ghostly silhouette wandering and obeying the hazards of rain or of snow, into the eternity of the climate …
My approach is deliberately pictorial and emotional.

How Wolves Change Rivers

wolves_wcth02-640x396

For more from George Monbiot, visit http://www.monbiot.com/ and for more on “rewilding” visit http://bit.ly/1hKGemK and/or check out George Monbiot’s book Feral: rewilding the land, the sea and human life: http://amzn.to/1fjgirx

NOTE: There are “elk” pictured in this video when the narrator is referring to “deer.” This is because the narrator is British and the British word for “elk” is “red deer” or “deer” for short. The scientific report this is based on refers to elk so we wanted to be accurate with the truth of the story.

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” – John Muir

When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable “trophic cascade” occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.

Narration from TED: “For more wonder, rewild the world” by George Monbiot. Watch the full talk, here: http://bit.ly/N3m62h
