You wouldn’t have thought the biggest mammal in the world could be so hard to find. As unlikely as it sounds, a new whale species has been discovered by the U.S. this month in the north-eastern Gulf of Mexico. And it’s just the kind of positive news we were looking for. As Geneticist Lynsey Wilcox of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says, “I was surprised that there could be an unrecognized species of whale out there, especially in our backyard.” It’s been described as “uniquely American,” but they could meet their end soon if something’s not done about it.

The world is full of beautiful destinations and unending adventures. But to experience our planet in all of its glory, you often have to hop on a plane and jet to far-off locations on the other side of the world. And while air travel is now a hugely popular form of travel for tourists, locals, and business people alike, that doesn’t mean that every single destination has a fully functioning airport. Some are home to the most dangerous runways in the world.
As temperatures are rising and glaciers are shrinking, climate change is happening faster than the world can keep up with. Put aside the fact that the world is falling apart because of this, it’s putting your favorite travel destinations at serious risk. With every passing day, the world is deteriorating piece by piece, and we’ve found the images that are documenting the daily destruction.
There’s only one white giraffe left in the world, and he’s living in Eastern Kenya. But the world has only known that such a creature exists since March 2016, two months after a supposed sighting in Tanzania. Poachers killed two relatives of the last white giraffe however, and they were the only known giraffe’s to share such a unique color. But now that the last white giraffe has been identified, conservation efforts are being made. He suffers from a rare genetic skin condition called leucism, which results in an absence of skin pigmentation. But it’s truly beautiful to behold his bright white body, faded patches, and reddish mane.
In the 21st century, it seems like the world’s coral reefs just can’t catch a break. Not only do they have to contend with the direct threat of declining biodiversity due to climate change and pollution, but they also face a threat on another front: being overrun by seaweed. But scientists have recently published compelling research that shows that unleashing armies of crabs on the coral reefs might be the solution.
In October 2020, scientists announced that they found a new coral reef just off the northern coast of Australia. It’s close in location to the Great Barrier Reef. And it’s massive: it’s taller than the Empire State Building. Read on to find out what experts say about this new reef and why it’s important for the world’s biodiversity.
