Every Nine Minutes
Every nine minutes, the weight of a blue whale (300,000 pounds) in plastic makes its way into our oceans. To call attention to this, the Monterey Bay Aquarium built a life-sized replica of a blue whale made of single-use, locally sourced plastic trash. Certified by Guinness World Records, the whale is the largest sculpture of its kind ever built.

In an almost-forgotten pocket of southern Jordan, you’ll find a vast desert of soaring sandstone monoliths, cliffs and walls that rivals the Colorado Plateau in both beauty and climbing potential. Welcome to Wadi Rum. Here, two Israeli climbers have teamed up with a Bedouin friend to establish an epic route in hopes of attracting international tourists to this desert gem. What ensues is a lesson in crossing cultures, building unlikely friendships and connecting over a shared passion for adventure, climbing and wild rock.
