A Longform Safari


Longform.org has been highlighting some amazing stories about animals lately. Like this one about the soulfulness (literally?) of elephants.

Or this one about polar bears as creatures, as symbols of global-warming guilt, and as subjects for Martha Stewart’s Hallmark Channel TV show.

Or this one about taxidermy.

All are great pieces to help you get in touch with your wild side (while curled up on your couch with your iPad).
