We must allow the recovery of wolves to continue under the Endangered Species Act; the job is far from done. Bringing back wolves restores predator-prey interactions that preceded humans and shaped the wild special places that we all love today.
It was the relatively late work Surprised by Joy (1955) that got me hooked. Here Lewis tells the story of how the atheist became a theist and eventually a Christian.
When Elsa Bailey turned 100 last May, she still had a bucket list. And on it was her desire to see a polar bear in the wild. Last week Bailey got to realize her dream when she traveled to Churchill, Manitoba as the guest of Natural Habitat Adventures.
Today marks the 65th year I've been breathing on the planet. And, let me tell you, it's been quite a journey... one not for the faint-hearted, but one filled with grit and grace, overwhelming beauty, dizzying despair, incredible inspiration and as much drama and comedy as my ego could possibly drum up.

This may come as a shock, but despite what your ex says about you, you're probably not going to Hell. Relieved? Good! But I hate to break it to you that your ex isn't going to Hell either.
Today, 20,000 species of plants and animals are at risk of extinction. Who knows what animals will be gone by the time you're a grandparent, or even by the time you're three? Will polar bears still be around when you're a teenager?
During the fall season, when the colors really start to pop, this idyllic bit of countryside becomes one of the best places to experience a truly classic American autumn. Here are some very good reasons why you should go (and what you should do when you get there).
My version of the American female road trip is told through the lens of a makeup mask. I have internalized subliminal and explicit messages that tell me natural girls who don't need makeup are pretty, but those pretty girls naturally don't have unibrows and acne.
If Congress stays on this damaging course of chipping away at the Park Service budget, we will continue to see cutbacks, closures, crumbling infrastructure, and disrepair in these places we love -- the very places that should represent the best we have to offer as a nation.
If you do a quick Google search for "ocean wilderness therapy" you'll find... almost nothing. Despite the fact that one of the best and longest stand...
Salmon so dense, dying in the creeks so thick, one could imagine walking across right on them. And a baby porcupine sleeping soundly by a stream, spotted while hiking the National Forest at the most blue of beautiful blues Mendenhall Glacier.
Stephanie Pincetl is director of the California Center for Sustainable Communities at UCLA. The Center studies the "urban metabolism" of Los Angel...
Docked in Haines (by far my favorite of the towns we've seen -- there's something a bit "Bay Area" about this place) we left ship very early and headed off on a flatboat to travel the several forks of the Chilkat River.
Do you think that nature-and-adventure travel companies should now have official cell phone policies in place? Have you ever had a bad -- or good -- experience with cell phone users on an adventure trip?
