The Sumatran rhino population is estimated to be an alarming less than 100 left in the world. Harapan — known affectionately as Harry to his zookeepers — is the only Sumatran rhino left in the U.S.

Geoff Keys, who is currently blogging about his adventures in Australia, lost his way after breaking off from his group to go for a swim near Eliot Falls. Things went wrong after he tried to take a shortcut on his way back that evening.

One of the world’s most rapidly flowing glaciers may have just set another record, and it’s not one not that bodes well for low-lying coastal cities and nations around the world, which are vulnerable to sea level rise

During the past month, a NASA satellite captured images showing a sudden loss of ice, also known as a calving event (or in this case, possibly multiple events) from Greenland’s Jakobshavn Isbrae Glacier between July 31 and August 16, 2015
