Located in the Kalahari Desert of northern Botswana, the oasis is fed by Angola’s Cuito and Cubango Rivers. The delta is a wildlife paradise and home to many exotic animals like elephants, hippos, sitatungas, and African fish eagles. But the delta is in danger as Angola seeks to develop the upper reaches of the Cuito and Cubango. Increasingly, forests along the banks are being burned down for river access, hunting, and subsistence crops. With these growing pressures, the future of the delta is at stake. The Okavango Wilderness Project is rooted in this cause. National Geographic Society sponsored an intrepid expedition team to research and survey the headwaters and document the need to protect the ecosystem. This animated video will reveal some the team’s wildlife discoveries and the environmental concerns the delta faces—as well as the tricky business of conservation across political borders.

An 18th-century wooden carving of Jesus holds a message from the past. Conservators with Madrid-based Da Vinci Restauro were examining a crucifix from a church about 80 miles north of the Spanish capital. The statue turned out to be hollow with a removable panel. Located on the figure’s backside, the opening was hidden by the cross. Inside lay a letter describing life in Spain in 1777, written by a chaplain, Joaquín Mínguez. The priest names the reigning monarch, Carlos III, catalogues crops and products such as wine. He tells of the Inquisition and of happier customs, with music and games. Mínguez seems to have intentionally placed the letter to serve as a time capsule. The document itself will go to an archive. But to honor Mínguez’s wishes, a copy will stay within the statue.

The Batavia shipwreck in the Abrolhos Islands, off the west coast of Australia, stranded 282 survivors. A mutiny erupted in the months to come and left 115 dead, many of whom were murdered. The grave discovered this month, however, included five individuals who likely died before the mutiny. Archaeologists suggest this to be the case because the bodies were buried respectfully. The bodies were also buried with artifacts that can give us more information on what happened in the tragic tale of Murder Island.

Fly Through a Star-Studded Nebula In a New 3-D Visualization | National Geographic

This is a 3-D visualization of the Orion Nebula. The Orion Nebula is a nearby star-forming region in our Milky Way galaxy. Nebulas are clouds of gas and dust that are scattered across the galaxy. Specialists from NASA have combined visible and infrared images from the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to make this fly-through. This is the most detailed multi-wavelength visualization of the Orion Nebula thus far. It was created using scientific imagery and data, and brought to life using some Hollywood magic. This visualization was created as part of an effort to enable the public to really experience the universe.

The first film from the National Geographic Society documented the failed attempt of an expedition to reach the North Pole. The 1902 footage, capturing chaotic scenes from the Ziegler polar expedition, was filmed by a budding photographer named Anthony Fiola. The expedition’s leadership had more passion than experience, and the team never reached the North Pole. Fiala eventually led a second attempt but that failed as well. Although he wasn’t the first to reach the North Pole, Fiala has the honor of being National Geographic’s first “explorer-cinematographer.”

Part of an upper jaw with teeth, the fossil was discovered in 2002 on Mount Carmel in northern Israel. While large-scale migration didn’t occur until around 50,000 to 60,000 years ago, small groups ventured out before then. Previously, our ancestors were thought to have initially traveled outside of Africa as far back as 120,000 years ago, but the new finding now puts that number at around 180,000 years ago. Scientists used four different dating methods to identify the age of the newfound fossil.
