La Cuna- with The Turner Twins and Jonathan Kolby
Season 3, Ep. 2
Shackleton! Columbus! Attenborough! They're all people who have ruined it for the rest of us. Well, according to this emotion, La Cuna. It's a twinge of sadness that we maybe know too much about the world around us. In exploring everything we possibly can, we've ruined the mystery, the possibility, and excitement of it, for future generations. But are explorers even a thing anymore? It turns out, yes! I found The Turner Twins (@TheTurnerTwins), who have some fascinating adventures under their belt, and were kind enough to share not only their stories, but thoughts on modern-day exploring, and how maybe we need to focus more on looking after the bits of Earth we've already found. With that in mind, I chatted to conservationist and National Geographic explorer, Jonathan Kolby (@MyFrogCroaked). He reckons that maybe we have already found every place we can, but that doesn't mean we've found every creature, animal, or explanation for why things are the way they are. So have we explored every possible piece of our planet? I'll let you decide. But the one conclusion we can all come to seem like this: however much of it we've discovered, we need to make sure we look after it. Remember, if you want to get in touch, please do!
