Wild Tiger Populations Greatly Diminished By Poachers

While more than 100,000 wild tigers roamed Asia and surrounding areas 100 year ago, now only as few as 3,200 wild tigers exist. In short, we have lost about 97 percent of the wild tiger population in one century. As with other endangered animals, human expansion, poaching, climate change and illegal wildlife trade all contribute to the rapid decline in tiger populations. Since illegal wildlife markets value every single part of tigers from whisker to tail, poachers continue to capitalize on diminishing tiger populations, killing as many as two tigers a week.

By-The-Wind Sailors Swarm The West Coast

Beachgoers on the West Coast were treated to a bizarre sight this summer when thousands of peculiar sea creatures commonly called “by-the-wind sailors” washed ashore. These small, jellyfish-like marine life (scientific name Velella velella) are about 2.75 inches in length and have a bluish tint to their rather translucent form. Due to their unique, sail-like shape, these aptly nicknamed creatures are at the mercy of the sea. When wind conditions change, so do their destinations, which is why so many of the Velella velella have made their way onto the beach this year.

The World’s Weirdest Natural Places

As humans, we often let our imagination run wild and can come back with some pretty surreal stuff that can surprise even the most well-seasoned of acid trippers.

Weirdest Natural Places: Mendenhall Ice Cave

Few people actually get to see a glacier in person. Even fewer get to see a cave inside the glacier, which is typically formed by a stream of water or volcanic vents. That is what made the Mendenhall Ice Cave special. Well…that and the fact that it looked like the inside of the Fortress of Solitude.
