Lyla June returns to For The Wild bearing poems that imbue the rigid language of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) with embodied story and prayer. Lyla reminds us that when we yearn to truly speak the language of life, love and healing, we must turn to poetry. Lyla and co-creator Joy De Vito’s collection Lifting He ...…
 
Journey with us this week to Jackson Wild Summit, an annual convergence of filmmakers, conservationists, scientists and innovators exploring critical conservation and environmental issues.

In Part Two of our conversation with Pavini Moray, we continue to trace the river of eros, sensation, and spirit that flows through our ancestral lineages and portals of the everyday. Turning inwards, we ask what must be animated within the self to show up for the places and beings we love? Beyond this, what intuitive sensibilities and knowledg ...…
 
This week, we are savoring in the delight of slowing down and wading into the generative waters of free-flowing eros, healing, pleasure, and embodiment. In a culture of severance and disconnection, how can we collectively move towards inhabiting our bodies and experiences on Earth in a way that is whole, visceral, and pleasurable? What might th ...…
 
Last October, the IPCC reported that we must cut global emissions in half by 2030 to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Faced with the enormous task of decarbonizing our economies and radically transforming nearly all systems of life, we must dream into new and ancient futures. At the heart of this calling for transition lies evermore urgent ...…
 
Sefra Alexandra is “on the hunt to preserve the biodiversity of our earth,” and with over 90% of vegetable varieties already extinct, safeguarding remaining seeds is serious work.

The Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska is the largest temperate rainforest left in the world and it is under attack.

This week, in Part Two of our episode with brontë velez, we dive into the capacity for pleasure amidst times of great uncertainty and historical oppression. What does “pleasure in the apocalypse” mean? How might this conversation take on different meanings depending on whether we are talking about climate change as an abstraction versus the cur ...…
 
brontë velez opens this week’s episode inviting us to think about how supremacy’s submission to Earth is an invitation into a more life-affirming world. What does a future look like in which white, human, and patriarchal supremacy surrender their power in an act of pleasure? How does this release manifest and what spaces must we create in order ...…
 
Places with the richest biodiversity are also home to the greatest diversity of languages left in the world.

Climate disaster is unfolding before our eyes every day, and yet banks have poured $1.9 trillion into maintaining and expanding the fossil fuel industry since the Paris Agreement was adopted. These investments prop up a dying trade while destroying our slim chance to stabilize global temperatures at a rise of 1.5°C. Around the world, banks are ...…
 
This week’s episode seeks to shed light on the ongoing, urgent crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls or MMIWG that remains largely invisible in public life and mainstream media.

With over a quarter of Guam being solely occupied by U.S. military bases, a legacy of nuclear bomb droppings throughout the Marshall Islands, and the military’s lease of Kwajalein Atoll, much of the Pacific remains silently condemned to serve as a sacrifice zone in the name of U.S. empire. The implication of ongoing military presence in the Pac ...…

All too often our conversations around the consolidation of wealth and power in America blindly fixate on the politics of the Right and Trump as the anti-hero archetype.

A burgeoning national food movement asks us to think critically about where our food comes from, and yet rarely do we consider where our food actually ends up.

To wrap our minds and bodies around creation stories, whether rooted in culture, faith, Earth, or cosmos can be both comforting and overwhelming.

Entomologists estimate that there are millions of insect species that remain “unknown” to the scientific world.

The topic of wildlife crime is inherently complex, and more often than not, dominant narratives fail to draw out the ever-present nuances regarding poaching and illegal trafficking.

A price will be paid for carbon emissions regardless of whether or not one believes in the climate crisis.
