A Top 10 from BBC Earth

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

In 2010, BBC Earth opened its arms (and eyes) to the online community. Since the website’s launch, it was never expected that we would discover the extent to which natural history can inspire people.

Through our Facebook page, we have realized that the mankind’s relationship with nature is alive and well, something that is overlooked with half of the world’s population now living in urban environments.

The incredible fact is that not only is there an interest to see amazing wildlife, incredible locations and the very best of natural history film-making, but also there’s a desire to give back!

The talent and commitment shown through the photo submissions to the BBC Earth page has grown from birds in back yards, to incredible captures of the natural world at large. So to celebrate these wonderful contributions and say thank you we’ve decided to share it with the wider world.

There have been some incredible submissions, and here is just a small selection of our favorites. And to see the full collection of remarkable images, or to join in yourself, dive in here.

Thank you again to everyone who has participated, supported or has simply “liked” an image. We are proud to have such an inspiring community and we look forward to what your future pictures hold.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
