There are about 30 members in @SkateNationGhana, Ghana’s first skate crew. Since there is nowhere to buy skateboards in Ghana, many crew members go to great length to get the gear they need. “My auntie sent me my board from Canada,” says Benedict, 19.

To say, as Joshua Odamtten does, that you head up the only skate crew in Ghana seems a bold claim, but in a country that doesn’t even have a shop where you can buy boards, his group @SkateNationGhana is truly one-of-a-kind. There is no permanent skate ramp in Accra, and the city’s roads are notoriously bad and bumpy, making it hard to find places to practice. But the crew has built makeshift wooden jumps and set them up temporarily on a smooth patch of parking lot underneath a cacophonous elevated highway in the northwest of the city. It is a rare sight in Accra, and, indeed, when they skate, people line up along the street to watch in awe. Tap the link in our bio to see more. Photographed by @NADINEIJEWERE.

The iconic @viviennewestwood mini-kilt Kate Moss wore at the designer’s Fall 1993 show has returned to @viviennewestwood's New York City store alongside a just-slightly longer men’s kilt. A key piece from Westwood’s Anglomania collection that twisted French perceptions of British style and culture, the super-short kilt was designed as an homage to her husband, Andreas Kronthaler. (Its specific red, blue, and yellow tartan pattern is even registered in Scotland as the “Westwood MacAndreas” design.) Tap the link in our bio for more details.
“Everything’s interconnected," @JaneGoodallInst says. "You learn that in the rain forest.” And that, in a nutshell, is her message: Humans fancy ourselves supernatural, but we’re just as much a part of the natural world as chimps, as the parasites they groom from one another’s fur, as the termites they dig from the ground, and on and on and on. If we don’t course correct soon, she warns, we’re headed for disaster. “I care passionately about nature,” Goodall says. “I care passionately about children. I have three grandchildren. I think about their children. If we can’t do things differently, what is the world going to be like in 50 years?” Tap the link in our bio to read our conversation with Goodall about that question, as well as the half-century-old memories stirred up by the new documentary Jane.
“Anyone who’s a shearer is some sort of interesting person,” photographer @nhm@nhm@nhmcelroy said. “So I started photographing some of the farms and shearers I work with. I want to depict the labor and get people to think about where wool comes from.” Recently, though, what that labor looks like has changed. “I was always acutely aware that there were less women shearers,” @nhmcelroy said. But last year, when he began shearing on commercial crews for a shearer and sheep rancher named Robert Irwin, McElroy noticed more and more women working on flocks—many who Irwin actively recruited. “I really think, going forward, it’s going to be women doing farm work,” Irwin said. “The last five years or so, teaching guys to do this stuff, a lot of them just don’t have the mentality of waking up and thinking to themselves, ‘I’m going to get better at this.’ The women do. They’re more apt to stick with this; they’re more detail-oriented; they’re tougher.” Tap the link in our bio to read more. Photographed by @nhmcelroy, reporting by @_true_stories_.
Most of the shearers in @nhm@nhmcelroya> photographs have a story about the extremes they’ve gone to in order to protect their animals. Shearer and sheep rancher Robert Irwin's sheep, both his own and the flocks he manages for others, are spread out throughout northern California. On a recent night, the winds around his Lake County, California ranch were blowing up to 50 miles an hour. “Everything was unsettled—the dogs, the sheep, the people,” he said. “We sensed in the air that something bad was going to happen.” When Irwin tried to check on reports of fire at another ranch, he opened the door to see a wall of fire in their path, with flames that shot up to 10 feet high when the wind picked up. “It sounded like a jet engine roaring across a racetrack,” he said. In the days and nights to come, he and his neighbors rallied to action, waking up neighbors in the fire’s path, and transporting animals to safety. They managed to rescue a flock of 530 sheep—”some of them were month-old lambs, still on their moms,” Irwin said—from a ranch in Potter Valley, just before the area was completely evacuated. At time of press, all the sheep were accounted for. Irwin and his wife, Jaime, who is eight months pregnant, were watching the winds closely. “We continue to dodge bullets,” he said. “But this is a good part of the world that still helps their neighbor out.” Tap the link in our bio to read more.
