The illegal hunt for Mammoth tusks in Siberia by Amos Chapple

This series of photographs really blew me away. I had no idea there was such a thing as hunting for Mammoth tusks for sale on the world market.
These "hunters" go at it day and night and if the finds are good they can earn up to $100k for a week's work. It is also highly illegal and dangerous.
It is also worth nothing that some of the tusks found do not get sold to collectors but get ground down for medicine in Asia. We're talking tusks over 10,000 years old here. Crazy.

Devastating forest fires hit Portugal

Thousands of firefighters, from Portugal and Spain, have been battling devastating forest fires in the central region of Portugal for the last three days. These fires have so far killed 64 people and destroyed many more homes.
These forest fires happen every year in Portugal and a big part of why they do are the huge areas of land which have seen native, more fire resistant trees, ripped out and replaced by non-native eucalyptus trees which are farmed for the paper (pulp) industry. These grow fast and tall, but they also contain an oily substance which catches fires very quickly.
A chance in policy has been on the table for years, but its not moving forward. Maybe this tragedy will set some wheels in motion.
