Modern technology over the past few years has allowed us to bring you deeper into expeditions than ever before. Join us for a Google+ Hangout on Air at 10:00am EDT on Friday, August 22, 2014 to be a part of the conversation and see this hidden Eden for yourself. While Africa is where we find the earliest traces of human activity, it is also the place where the large animals that once roamed widely on all continents now make their last stand. The expedition will be led by South African conservationist Steve Boyes, and include Adventurers & Scientists for Conservation founder Gregg Treinish, data artist and educator Jer Thorp, and engineer and ocean conservationist Shah Selbe. This kind of dedication paid off earlier this year when the Okavango was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mission of the Okavango Wilderness Project is to secure the Okavango Delta and its vast untouched catchment in perpetuity. The Okavango 2014 team joined viewers around the world for a Google+ Hangout on Air on Friday, August 22, 2014, answering questions, showing off their amazing surroundings, and telling stories of their adventure.
Born and raised in South Africa, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Steve Boyes has dedicated his life to restoring and preserving Africa's wilderness areas and the species that call them home. Okavango Delta Traverse (August 2014)For the first time ever a group of National Geographic explorers will be sharing their every move, their research, what they are seeing, what they are hearing, their very heartbeats, and their thoughts and tweets in real-time via satellite while exploring one of the world’s richest wilderness areas, Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

The so-called "mummy's curse" gained widespread popularity around 1922 after the man who sponsored the expedition into the tomb of the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun died suddenly six weeks after the crypt was opened.
Travel to the Egypt of Ramses II, whose monuments stud the Nile in timeless testament to a civilization that endured for three millennia and continues to amaze the world today. Born in captivity, these two Bengal tiger youngsters will never be fit for release into the wild.
Triggering a remote camera with her movements, a Bengal tiger takes a self-portrait while cooling off in a pool. In the last century, tiger numbers fell from 100,000 to 3,200 and they now live in only seven percent of their historical range.
The king of the African savannah is in serious trouble because of massive conversion of the continent’s remaining wilderness to human land-use, according to a detailed study. Intensely shy and hovering on the edge of extinction, Iranian cheetahs are essentially impossible to see. Thinking of snow leopards as domesticated—and thus dependent on people for food—may help save the dwindling species, one conservationist claims. Beating Usain Bolt's best, Sarah the "polka-dotted missile" clocked the world's fastest recorded time for a 100-meter run.
The stakes are high, and therefore, the opportunities couldn’t be any better: We can’t stop the Arctic changing and we can easily imagine the cultural, environmental, and commercial risks of getting things wrong.
If the Arctic becomes a geopolitical and commercial battleground, it will have a negative impact on all of our lives. Our evening forum on the Arctic went by too fast and many of us wanted more time in the discussion groups. Paul Rose is vice president of the Royal Geographical Society, and chair of its Expeditions and Fieldwork Division. Paul Rose, co-leader of National Geographic’s Arctic Pristine Seas Expedition, engaged in some higher thinking in Franz Josef Land.


Great waves of Change , a wonderful book talking about what’s happening in the world at this critical time for humanity.
Props to you for being able to understand what is being destroyed by companies such as the socially conscious Shell.
In an unusual ambush, a Nile crocodile grabs onto an elephant's trunk at an African water hole. A routine trip to the water hole recently resulted in a life-or-death struggle for a pair of African elephants when they were ambushed by a hungry Nile crocodile (pictured).
During the attack, the elephants were able to move away from the water with the crocodile still hanging on to the adult (pictured).
This particular clash of the titans had a happy endinga€”except perhaps for the hungry crocodile."The elephant managed to turn, but the croc was still hanging on," photographer Nyfeler said. In honor of April 18, we take a look at how science organizes and names speciesa€”sometimes with a sense of humor. Mountains, wildlife, and wide open skies inspired more than great pictures for our photographer. From birds that remove their babies' "dirty diapers" to crows that store their tools, nature is full of orderly species. National Geographic explores how we can feed the growing population without overwhelming the planet in our food series. Volunteers risk their lives to vaccinate children in Islamic State-controlled territory in Syria.
Using Google+ Hangouts, we’ve connected people around the world at home, (probably also at work), on desktops, laptops, and mobile phones and tablets, with explorers deep in a Maya cave, at Base Camp on Everest, in the Aquarius underwater lab, on all seven continents, and even had a message from the International Space Station. These four creative pioneers in different fields all came together when named National Geographic Emerging Explorers in 2013.
They have unique cultures and as far as i know only very few anthropologists worked with Kavango peoples. They loose their languages, traditions,tribal customs (for example 100 years ago Hambukushu had a coming of age ceremony for boys. The National Geographic film Okavango is a rallying point for the global community of stakeholders, government officials, researchers, activists, tourism operators, community members, conservationists and guides that support the protection of the Angolan catchment. This team of baYei River Bushmen, scientists, data artists, writers, photographers, bloggers, naturalists and conservation engineers will be taking the very pulse of Africa’s last-remaining wetland wilderness. Data is also available through a public API, allowing anyone to re-mix, analyze, or visualize the collected information. Now modern forensics and high-tech imaging offer new insights into his life—and death. At three to four months the cubs begin to eat meat but are still too young to hunt, a skill they will learn at 12 to 16 months. A remotely operated camera captured this tiger that had sustained injuries after feeding on a porcupine. So when I was stepped up to podium to moderate a forum on the Arctic for the National Geographic’s Great Energy Challenge initiative, it felt only right to open the session by apologizing for us all being inside.
We were in the wonderful Royal Society building in London, and could feel that we were indeed following 350 years of scientific discovery, so the venue could not have been better—unless, that is, we could have been standing on the Arctic sea ice. This is our chance to make high standard, sensible, sustainable adaptations to climate change.


However, if we embrace and put into action a vision of the “Top of the World” as a pristine region that is a benchmark for cultural appreciation, environmental understanding, and protection, as well as rational development and a showcase for adaptation to anthropogenic climate change, then this will have a positive effect on society. He was co-leader of National Geographic’s 2013 Pristine Seas Expedition to the remote Russian archipelago of Franz Josef Land. Most importantly it tells how we can prepare for the changes and protect what’s left. Some are found in cliffs at the edge of the coastline, chipped away by the relentless pounding of waves. Steve’s passion and years-long dedication to the Okavango inspired the others, who soon realized that together they could make an even bigger impact to explore and protect this land while educating the world about its wonders. Readers can help build up to our 8-week expedition over 1,000 miles down the length of the Okavango River in 2015 by sharing this epic, once-in-a-lifetime research and conservation expedition down the full length of the Okavango River through an abandoned wilderness into the Delta.
This ground-breaking expedition launches on the 17th August and will most likely finish on the 3rd September… Join us and meet the expedition team at intotheokavango.org. They will travel like baYei River Bushmen and be subject to the dangers of encountering the worlds largest-remaining populations of elephants, thousands of hippos, 15–foot crocodiles, and some of the last–remaining super–prides of lions on Earth.Click here for more information.
Even for those who never get there – they will hear about us shuffling around on the ice in our freezing discussions and know that the Arctic is in good hands. If we had been on the ice in a whiteout, on a windswept beach or were being tossed around at sea we would have more appreciated the concise timetable. Others form where a lava tube's outer surface cools and hardens and the inside of the molten rock drains away. So I invite you to continue your discussions here at the online forum and I’m greatly looking forward to your thoughts, guidance and comments. Caves even form in glaciers where meltwater carves tunnels at the beginning of its journey to the sea.But most caves form in karst, a type of landscape made of limestone, dolomite, and gypsum rocks that slowly dissolve in the presence of water with a slightly acidic tinge. Rain mixes with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as it falls to the ground and then picks up more of the gas as it seeps into the soil.
The combination is a weak acidic solution that dissolves calcite, the main mineral of karst rocks.The acidic water percolates down into the Earth through cracks and fractures and creates a network of passages like an underground plumbing system. This is one of the last places on Earth where modern humans can witness the balance of wild animals and landscape that preceded our era of construction and domestication. The passages widen as more water seeps down, allowing even more water to flow through them. Most of these solutional caves require more than 100,000 years to widen large enough to hold a human.The water courses down through the Earth until it reaches the zone where the rocks are completely saturated with water.
Here, masses of water continually slosh to and fro, explaining why many caverns lay nearly horizontal.Fanciful FeaturesHidden in the darkness of caves, rock formations called speleothems droop from the ceilings like icicles, emerge from the floor like mushrooms, and cover the sides like sheets of a waterfall.
Speleothems form as the carbon dioxide in the acidic water escapes in the airiness of the cave and the dissolved calcite hardens once again.The icicle-shaped formations are called stalactites and form as water drips from the cave roof.
Stalagmites grow up from the floor, usually from the water that drips off the end of stalactites.
