I wish I was riding the horse out in Siberia right now, but I know where my place is. There are many parts of the history and legacy of exploration that we modern explorers must have a critical awareness about. Many early explorers spread disease that decimated indigenous populations around the world. While it’s heartbreaking to have to postpone or cancel expeditions it is our duty to be aware of the hazards that we bring to remote areas that may have weak healthcare systems. It’s not brave to put other people at risk. I don’t know when I will be out in the field again, hopefully soon, but I do know it will be a different world and there will be a whole new set of precautions to take to travel ethically. . . . I will continue posting photos and videos from our expeditions- over 10tb of things the outside world still hasn’t seen! Im lucky to have a safe place to edit our documentary series that will hopefully be out before this is all over. I’ll also be sharing my drawings and thoughts on ancient cultures and wild places- important to remember our feral nature during this required domestication 🐺 . PC @ginocaspari . .

Repost from TEC Fellow @carltonward || #CrystalRiver, #Florida I photographed this manatee mom and calf a few years ago in Crystal River. It was a cold winter day and raindrops were dappling the surface of the spring. I was photographing key sites we would soon revisit during the Florida Wildlife Corridor #Glades2Gulf Expedition. My good friend @macstonephoto was with me this day and got even better frames. Manatees are important ambassadors for wildlife corridors. Just like bears and panthers, manatees need large connected habitats to survive. During the winter months they migrate dozens of miles upstream to seek refuge from cold fronts in warm water springs. . . . . . . . . . . . . #manatee #manatees #marinelife #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifepreservation #wildlifephotograpy #nature #naturephotography #photooftheday #photooftheweek #explorersclub #theexplorersclub #explorersclubmember

We often found ourselves sitting around the cabin in the evening, waiting for the power to go out at 10pm, between rounds of Gin Rummy playing the old 'if you were trapped on a desert island what book/CD/movie/etc would you bring with you?' A very relevant question for our situation and one which had answers as varied and lewd as the question could be. . But if anyone asked me what TEAM would I want to be trapped on a desert island with, I couldn't ask for more than these two. Though we could all frustrate the hell out of each other at times the expedition wouldn't have been possible with them. Andy ('The Major') Hawkins, whose tunnel archaeology knowledge made the survey possible and whose bomb disposal skills may have saved our lives was invaluable. Martin Potts, though a lab-based virology researcher with no archaeological experience nor interest in the Second World War, made an outstanding cameraman, lead photographer, and helping pair of digging hands on numerous occasions. . We didn't kill each other, we collectively added to the scientific and historical canon, and if that's not a successful expedition I don't know what is! . Here Martin takes one of the 175 photos I had him shoot of this Imperial Navy helmet for photogrammetry, while Andy documents a soldier's personal porcelain sake bowl. Me? I took photos of them and made jokes about mosquitoes. . #archaeologist #archaeology #kolombangara #kolombangaraforgottenfortress #solomonislands #forgottenfortress #team #explorersclub #explore #expedition #adventure #adventurer #archeology #archeologist #documentary #documentaryphotography #jungle #japan #imperialjapan #secondworldwar #history #worldwartwo #wartimehistory #helmet #camera #teambuilding #theexplorersclub #tec

Armenia is a nation, and former Soviet republic, in the mountainous Caucasus region between Asia and Europe. Among the earliest Christian civilizations, it’s defined by religious sites including the Greco-Roman Temple of Garni and 4th-century Etchmiadzin Cathedral, headquarters of the Armenian Church. Yerevan, Armenia's capital, is marked by grand Soviet-era architecture. The Matenadaran library, housing thousands of ancient Greek and Armenian manuscripts, dominates its main avenue. Republic Square is the city's core, with musical water fountains and colonnaded government buildings. The 1920s History Museum of Armenia on the square's eastern side contains archaeological objects like a circa-3500-B.C. leather shoe. Saint Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral was beautifully captured by dad of @gima_ashi Thanks Garima for sharing such an amazing picture. #armenia #armenian #cathedral #gimaashi #tiktokstar #traveldestination #travellingthroughtheworld

Words and photo by @williamwinram on the importance of mindfulness when working with apex predators Vigilance and practical mindfulness play a role when diving with this fish… imagine being in the water in this moment, with this light and ask yourself, how easily could I have missed this approaching #greatwhiteshark ? They can blend in so well and if you think about it, a quick glance in the opposite direction or even just to the right or left when coupled with the restrictions in your field of vision created by the mask and you have a recipe for this shark getting quite close before you notice their presence… They advance in the water column with little actual physical movement of their bodies… stealth like the silent hunter or more aptly the opportunistic hunter - since they are in constant motion it does not mean they are constantly in hunting mode but more like they are always ready for an opportunity… vigilance is all important to safely enter the water with them.

Here's another article my dear friend @beetleben1 and I wrote for a German magazine many years ago. Aquaristik Fachmagazin. This was about our trip during which we re-discovered our first species and the first of three Darios from South India, Dario urops. We say rediscovered as it was originally discovered by Francis Day and left in the archives of The Natural History Museum London, almost 120 years before we found it from a somewhat similar location. The original specimen collected by Francis Day still lies at NHM, London and was accessed by our dear friend Dr. Ralf Britz. It was tagged as Badis sp. Waynad. A great rediscovery indeed. . . . . . . #indiagills #westernghats #karnatakawildlife #wildkarnataka #dario #dariourops #rediscovery #francisday #nhmlondon #aquaristikfachmagazin #writersofinstagram #explorersclub #raysociety #iucn #natgeoexplorer #citizenscientist #waynad #kodagu #coorgwildlifesociety #wasi #stayhome #friendsofwasi

Repost from TEC Fellow, @paulrosolie || #LasPiedras, #MadreDeDios, #Peru . How incredible this moment is. A young anaconda birthed live from its mother is a vulnerable infant. A neonate in the jungle. Vulnerable to all the hazards of jungle life. She'll begin searching for frogs and small rodents to sustain herself. Each meal requires a fight to the death. She'll try to hide in the watery leaf litter and stay safe. When the sun comes out she'll bask, digest, and grow. But each moment of sun comes with the risk of being eaten by a bird, caiman, other snakes, and even fish. Two years in and she's six feet long - about two meters and as thick as a human arm. Still a squirt by anaconda standards. Now her diet includes rabbits, agoutis, and many of those same birds that threatened to eat her when she was just a baby. Her predators are fewer now than they were when she was new. This is the stage when I met her. I'm sure I'll never see her again. What stays with me is the wonder. I can only imagine what she's doing out there. How much has she grown? What animals has she overpowered? When I am an old man will she be a giant? When I’m long gone will she still be out there? From a tiny little snake to a dragon the length of a school bus, she will have influenced the entire food chain of the Amazon. . The one thing I do know, and the one thing I can do, is protect her home. . .

In 1000, the #Vikings touched down in northeastern Canada, the Polynesians reached Madagascar, and the Chinese voyaged to the Philippines. How did they pull off these astonishing journeys? How can we establish how far they went? How can we understand the presence of blonde-haired people in Maya temple murals at Chichén Itzá, Mexico? Is it possible that the Vikings had found their way to the Americas during the height of the #Maya empire? . Join us at 7 PM EDT this evening for "The Year 1000: When Explorers Connected the World - and Globalization Began," an #ECLectureSeries presentation, featuring Prof. #ValerieHansen with host, TEC Fellow Prof. Alex More (@alastarmuir).

‘Scythian’ is a name that describes the nomadic steppe tribes that roamed Eurasia during the Iron Age and transition from the Late Bronze Age (very roughly the 1,000 years preceding Christ) Scythian material culture is generally identified by three components- known as the Scythian Triad: horse gear (like bridals and saddles), weapons, and animal style art. I like studying and drawing different finds to understand how they varied over time and geography. To the left is a part of a preserved wood carving from an ice tomb in Pazyryk Valley, Siberia showing animal style, assorted daggers, trilobite arrowheads, and typical Scythian horse gear like bits and bridle pieces. . . . . There is still much to be discovered about these cultures and many of the categories and chronology we use to understand other ancient people or modern societies do not fit. While this is frustrating to some who would rather a simple or direct answer, I personally find it all the more intriguing. . . .

Note… the shark is swimming past and has no interest in the diver or myself… sometimes it is difficult to get a #greatwhiteshark to swim in towards oneself and often with the cage diving boats they must use bait to attract the sharks in… kinda goes contrary to what most people think about these large fish.

After extended time doing fieldwork there is a common feeling among explorers when you return home of feeling ‘bushed.’ Things that used to seem normal are bizarre (especially supermarkets) and the months out in the field change you- sometimes it shows ha. Now with with everyone trying to adapt to a new normal with lockdowns there are many parallels. On expedition, and in our project in particular where there are a lot of ups and downs I have started to come back to that mindset where you know nothing is guaranteed and not to get too set in expectations. There is a lot out of our control but each day there is something you can do to move forward. . . .

📜Professor Dispatch📜 • 🗺⚓️Columbus, Ohio, is one of 32 cities, towns and townships in America named after Christopher Columbus. This bronze monument created by Edoardo Alfieri, was placed in its permanent position at Columbus’s City Hall in 1955.⚓️🗺.. • 🗺⚓️This Columbus statue is no stranger to protests, they normally appear in October around Columbus Day. In the 1980s and '90s, the city celebrated the holiday with a big parade, but cut down the festivities after protests in part by Native American groups. So, is this guy the next to come down? ⚓️🗺.. • 🗺⚓️For those advocating that the statue come down, their reasons are clear: according to them, Columbus was a rapist, a murderer, and his actions led to the genocide of an indigenous people. He didn't "discover" America (in fact, he never set foot in North America), but rather, landed on a few Caribbean Islands. And as the governor of Hispaniola, he was a brutal leader.⚓️🗺.. • 🗺⚓️But many Italian Americans see Columbus from a different perspective: the voyager who is a symbol of Italian American immigrants. ⚓️🗺.. • 🗺⚓️Only time will tell about the future of this monument, but as of now this 22 foot tall, three ton monument to old Chris will stand watch at the entry to City Hall.⚓️🗺.. • Thanks!..

Back to my “Red Planet” photo essay. This is Number 19 - the Cano Cristales river in a remote part of southern Colombia. I travelled to this amazing red river with my daughter @briannarowe on an Explorers Club flag expedition. She was just elected to the Board of Directors of the 116 year old club this month, but with all club activities and of course all travel shut down, she is now hunkered down in Brooklyn. #red#redplanet #redriver #colombia #explore #explorersclub

🐯Already Over The Tiger King🐯 • The internet and social media has exploded concerning Netflix’ new true crime documentary “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem And Madness”. Everything is Tiger King this and Tiger King that. I say BFD. Long before there was a Tiger King there was Wombat Calhoun and “The Wombat Chronicles”. You think Tiger cubs are rough? Try getting shot on the ass by a laser from a cranky baby Imperial Walker! Now that sh*t hurts!! Sadly we filmed a few episodes but “The Wombat Chronicles” never got picked up by a major network. It’s all for the best though. My first love has always been researching, exploring and teaching all things Oddball. Ok, my little grumble is over. I’ll be catching up with you soon my fellow Oddballers! Sincerely, Wombat Calhoun.

Meru’s northeast headwall in morning light waits for us to acknowledge it. That wonderful shard, the Shark’s Fin, rests just above to the left but for these moments at least it was the wall itself which takes the entire sensory body. Few better morning breaths to take than here when the sun begins to alchemize the chill morning air. Our own journey there was to travel upon the Gangotri Glacier, one of the prime feeders of the Ganges River. The entire journey was lined by stone guardians which took the eyes up…ever upwards. #garwhal #gangotri #glacier #india #beautifulindia #meru #mountains @himalayangeographic @AHF @himfdn #MyGHT #trek @hippie_in_hills #mountainsmatter #mountains #himalayas #mountainwisdom #earthpix #altitude #thevisualyatra #Himachalpictures #keephimalayasclean #earthfocus @koraoutdoor #explorersclub #rcgs #nikonnofilter #ig_captures #remoteexpeditions #climate #ig_myshot #uttarakhand

Andrea Asúnsolo en apnea con una #manta gigante negra en el Parque Nacional #Revillagigedo 😍 Gracias por compartir, @williamwinram 😀!! 👇🏼 #Repost @williamwinram with @make_repost ・・・ Manta rays are beautiful, peaceful and curious among other things… I am envious of their effortless glide through the water as if flying a sensation I have only experienced during the freefall phase of my dives once I get past my own buoyancy and begin to drop towards the ocean floor… then I feel I have an ease in moving and simple and subtle shifts of my body or fins can create big changes in direction. I could spend hours and days in the water observing them moving about.

Perhaps we can think about social distancing when diving with marine life? We get that the 70+ people are excited by the whale shark but this is totally crazy and during this recon trip our team noted that this touristic activity was literally chasing the whales away from the area they were in to feed… It is excellent that we can create a larger monetary value for sharks alive than dead but we also need to temper that with respect for the animal.

This is the view that people have looked down upon Lake Hallstatt in Austria for thousands of years. The earliest traces were high up in this valley near where the ancient salt mines go into the mountain. Later on there were Roman settlements down near the lakeside where the town is. Today there is a funicular (a sort of alpine cable car) that takes you from the town up to the valley above. 7,000 years ago it would have been a treacherous hike up the mountainside to get to this spot. Today there are nice hiking paths. The town was built up in the narrow strip between the mountain and the lake and up until the late 1800s was only accessible by boat and a few small trails. Nice to get one last breath of winter last month before being locked inside for the foreseeable future! PC @ri___ki . . . . .

Before we dive into a cenote, we need to find it first. Here you see the basic tool we use to get the job done. The GPS unit is a Trimble Nomad which allows us to use any kind of georeferenced photo, data set, or map as a background layer. A compass is essential for navigation to and from known points. A machete helps us clear a path. A mask and a light help us quickly assess the cenote. GoPro’s and smartphones help us document. We also take lots of water and snacks. Bug repellent can be nice too!! . . . #cenote #mexicocavediving #cenotes #cavediving #cavedivingmexico #quintanaroo #exploration #explorer #water #agua #explore #mexico #aquifer #zerogravitydivecenter #halcyondivesystems #santidiving #guediver #guehq #méxicosalvaje #méxico #mcep #riossubterraneos #oxbelha #suex_dpv_official #scuba #explorersclub #explorers #freshwater #buceo #dronedeploy

reliving some happy memories from last year. 👩‍👧‍👦 • i recently read an article titled, "that discomfort you're feeling is grief" and the title alone resonated strongly with me. we are grieving. as a society, we are grieving. as a world we are grieving. together. as a whole. there's something called anticipatory grief. anticipatory grief, the article says, is "that feeling we get about what the future holds when we’re uncertain. Usually it centers on death. We feel it when someone gets a dire diagnosis or when we have the normal thought that we’ll lose a parent someday. Anticipatory grief is also more broadly imagined futures. There is a storm coming. There’s something bad out there. With a virus, this kind of grief is so confusing for people. Our primitive mind knows something bad is happening, but you can’t see it. This breaks our sense of safety. We’re feeling that loss of safety. I don’t think we’ve collectively lost our sense of general safety like this. Individually or as smaller groups, people have felt this. But all together, this is new." we're currently living in a very uncertain place, and I think it's important to acknowledge what we're all feeling and familiarize ourselves with the stages of grief: denial anger bargaining sadness and acceptance. also know that we don't always move through these stages in a linear fashion. i'm currently bouncing back and forth between sadness and acceptance. how about you? there is power in naming your grief and allowing yourself to feel what you're feeling. if you would like the link to the whole article, let me know :)

"We only know a tiny proportion about the complexity of the natural world. Wherever you look, there are still things we don’t know about and don’t understand.
