I was briefly a witness to their phenomenal dedication as well as to the cost of that dedication. From months away from their families in spartan conditions, to conflict with heavily armed poachers and militias, to working closely with tracker dogs and technology, these people make an incredible contribution to ensuring the survival of a global conservation heritage. The goal of African Parks is to have 20 parks under management by 2020. Without these men and women, that would be impossible. I’m very grateful to all the AP rangers who helped us to tell their story. @natgeo @africanparksnetwork #conservation #endangeredspecies #campaignfornature

Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto | If you've ever wanted to get stranded on a remote tropical island, this would be a great choice. The Kingdom of Tonga is an archipelago in the South Pacific that consists of over 150 beautiful tropical islands that have white sand beaches and breathtaking lagoons with endless snorkeling and diving opportunities. It took us hundreds of miles of sailing to get here, but once we arrived, it was definitely worth the effort. #tonga #kingdomoftonga #southpacific

Yes, Janessa Leoné (@janessaleone) has always loved hats. “I’m a child of the 80s, so I always wore the big hats with the flowers on the front of them. Once I developed my own personal style in high school and college, I loved finding vintage hats.” In 2014, the lifelong hat enthusiast started her own brand in Santa Monica, California. “The way that I design and the way that I go about my creative process is very carefree and focused on a really good balance of quality of life.”⁣

I’m going to feature something this week which might not be that popular, but something I think is both important and interesting.
⠀⠀
Industrial History.
⠀⠀
We people visit historic sites, they are usually visiting ancient ruins, cathedrals or temples, or city centers that are several hundred years old. All of those are fine things and I’ve certainly visited my fair share of them.
⠀⠀
One thing I always like visiting are the overlooked sites which help us understand how our modern world came about. Everything isn’t churches and museums. Ore had to be mined and processed to make metals. Techniques had to be developed to create machines. Roads and railways had to be laid down.
⠀⠀
One reason people don’t visit these places is because they usually aren’t preserved. Few people thought to preserve a factory from the 19th or early 20th century. That isn’t old enough to be “history”.
⠀⠀
The first site I’m going to feature is the copper mine in Falun, Sweden. The mine operated for almost 1,000 years, only ceasing production in 1992.
⠀⠀
In the 17th century, the mine was responsible for the vast majority of copper in Europe, and was the single biggest revenue source for the Kingdom of Sweden.
⠀⠀
Working in the mine hundreds of years ago was horrific. Large fires were lit inside to crack the rock so it could be extracted. Miners would often go months without seeing daylight. ⠀⠀
The mine tour is fascinating and gives you a look into how mining was conducted centuries ago. The area around the mine was originally built for mine workers, but today it is just regular housing for people in the city. ⠀⠀
