Meet Kevin Hines. Out of the thousands of people who have jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, he’s part of the less than 1% who survived the mostly deadly jump.

“Regarding his thoughts after the jump, Hines stated, “There was a millisecond of free fall. In that instant, I thought, what have I just done? I don’t want to die. God, please save me.””

A massive pack of 25 timberwolves hunting bison on the Arctic circle in northern Canada

n mid-winter in Wood Buffalo National Park temperatures hover around -40C. The wolf pack, led by the alpha female, travel single-file through the deep snow to save energy. The size of the pack is a sign of how rich their prey base is during winter when the bison are more restricted by poor feeding and deep snow. The wolf packs in this National Park are the only wolves in the world that specialise in hunting bison ten times their size. They have grown to be the largest and most powerful wolves on earth
