Countless Cacti Are Being Stolen From Arizona’s National Park So The Rest Are Being Microchipped For Protection

There’s a reason why national parks are so treasured and protected. With so much urban development occurring and expanding wherever land is available, it’s important to preserve these areas that are part of our nation’s history in addition to being home to fragile ecosystems and rare botanical specimens. As a result, it’s illegal to steal from or vandalize any national park, but visitors to the Saguaro National Park in Arizona don’t seem to care much for adhering to the law. The Saguaros cactus, what the park is named after and famous for, has the ability to grow over 40 feet tall and live for more than 200 years. Recently, it’s been the main source of vandalism at the park as they can be sold for as much as $100 per foot. Kevin Dahl, a program manager for the National Park Conservation As...

This Dog Died After A United Airlines Flight Attendant Put It In An Overhead Bin

An unnamed flight attendant is being investigated by United Airlines for forcing a passenger to place their dog in an overhead bin for the duration of a flight from Houston to New York.

This Flooded Brazilian Rainforest Looks Stunning Underwater

Nobody is mad about this beautifully natural accident that just occurred in Jardim, Brazil. Earlier this month, their nature reserve was flooded by the unusual amount of heavy rainfall they’ve been experiencing lately. However, the flooding was a blessing in disguise, as the whole preserve was transformed into a rare, underwater paradise. The Atlas Obscura reported that this phenomenon occurs when heavy rains hit the Rio de Prata which causes it to slow down, dam, and increase the water level at the Olho d’Agua. According to the reserve, the water from the Olho D’Agua river is clear, “due to their conserved riparian forest and being inside a Private Reserve of the Natural Patrimony – PRNP, a type of Conservation Unit.” [embedded content] A park ranger had the unique pleasure of discovering...
