How do we keep the outdoors wild?

In this new issue, we brought together stories and perspectives from creative ecologists, farmers, adventurers, and philosophers who all contribute to protecting nature on a daily basis. With their help, we broke down the concept of conservation into a range of inspiring and thought-provoking topics that all answer one fundamental question: how do we keep the outdoors wild?


Adventure Scientists • Michael Barrus • Guillaume Beaudoin • Frank Bergon • Tim Eddy & Hannah Fuller • Chris Burkard • Coeur intelligent • Jimmy Downey • Tom Harrison • Bernie Krause • Loom • Emma Marris • Kandi Mossett • Dan O’Brien • PEPPERMINT Cycling Co. • Guillaume Roy • Surf the Greats • United By Blue
And many more . . .


World-renowned photographer Chris Burkard (California) shares the story behind one of his famous shots, and his relationship with fragile wild places on earth.

Environmental writer Emma Marris (Oregon) signs a manifesto about a more encompassing definition of wilderness, one that includes cities and pristine nature.

In our Adventure feature, photographer Guillaume Beaudoin and writer Wayana Doneys (Quebec) tell the full story of their month-long sailing trip from Hawaii to the North Pacific, on a mission to gather plastic samples for the mega Ocean Cleanup.

Conservationist, falconer, rancher and acclaimed author Dan O’Brien writes an original essay about his vision for conservation, and what the last 40 years raising buffalo on the South Dakota Prairies have taught him.

United By Blue founder Brian Linton (Pennsylvania) answers some challenging questions about cultivating a business model relying on sustainability and degrowth, while Surf the Greats (Ontario) makes a case for connecting communities with the Great Lakes through clean up initiatives.

And much more . . .
