“This Great White Shark was swimming in the lineup today when I was out for a surf, luckily I had my GoPro on hand to capture it! It was about 7ft long and 40 yards from shore.” – Michael Davids.
Ocean engineer Brennan Phillips led a team to the remote Solomon Islands in search of hydrothermal activity. The main peak of the volcano, called Kavachi, was not erupting during their expedition, so they were able to drop instruments, including a deep-sea camera, into the crater. The footage revealed hammerheads and silky sharks living inside, seemingly unaffected by the hostile temperatures and acidity.
American paraglider Gavin McClurg can aptly be described as adventurous. Some of his notable accomplishments include sailing around the world and flying the Canadian Rockies, and he’s even been nominated as a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year alongside fellow Canadian Will Gadd. But it all might have never happened if a little swim he took in 2001 went another way. So, spoiler: He’s still alive. But the rest of the story? We’re going to let him tell you about that himself.

Kegan Rothman was enjoying a day out in Chilliwack, Canada, on Monday when he was nearly pulled into the Fraser River by the giant catch.
A three year old Amur tiger has been successfully captured, collared and released into a mountainous region in the Russian Far East. The young male was identified as a ‘conflict tiger’ in a prey depleted area but rather than confining him to a life of captivity, the Russian government opted to give him a second chance.
For centuries, Svalbard was completely lawless, devoid of any government authority. It attracted whalers, hunters, merchants, and fishermen from all over the world – the UK, Russia, France, Netherlands, North America, and Scandinavia. Amazingly enough, they were all able to co-exist for hundreds of years without a sovereign authority or central government telling them what to do or how they could live. Of course, it all got screwed up eventually.
