Why we explored an undisturbed rainforest hidden on top of an African mountain
Atop Mount Lico in northern Mozambique is a site that few have had the pleasure of seeing – a hidden rainforest, protected by a steep circle of rock. Though the mountain was known to locals, the forest itself remained a secret until six years ago, when Julian Bayliss spotted it on satellite imagery. It wasn’t until last year, however, that he revealed his discovery, at the Oxford Nature Festival.

I Helped Judge the 2018 Audubon Photography Contest. Here’s How We Did It.
In late 2017 Sabine Meyer, the Photography Director of the National Audubon Society, approached me to join the jury for their annual photography awards contest following an introduction by wildlife and conservation photographer Melissa Groo.
Melissa and I have served on the faculty of the Photography at the Summit Nature Workshop for the past several years, and I have nothing but respect for the advocacy work she does through her photography so I was happy to join her as a judge for the contest.
I’ve written about photo contests for years, including the annual PhotoShelter Guide to Photo Contests, and I’ve always been fascinated by how different organizations handle judging from year to year. Some contests annually rotate juries and offer little guidance or parameters around judging, while others have fairly static juries that retain institutional knowledge and intentionally consider their long-term raison d’etre.

Phenology is a delightful and challenging way to fight climate change from home.
Hineline argues that as climate change proceeds, and the uncertain effects of warming unfold, scientists will find the phenological records kept by us civilians to be more and more useful. “Individual observations of phenophases, even if they are of a single species, when aggregated with the reports of other observers, provide the facts that drive theoretical understanding and make modeling and prediction possible,” Hineline writes. Keeping them, then, isn’t just for us—it could mean something bigger.

But it is also for us. This whole idea of phenology appeals to me tremendously. I tend to turn to record-keeping to help me feel better about any daunting and uncontrollable situation: budgeting expenses; feeding a newborn; treating insomnia caused by expenses and a newborn. Write stuff down? I can do that!
