Latest issue
As a girl, growing up in the Ecuadorian Amazon, Nemonte Nenquimo grew up with a sense that outsiders – or cowori – were a threat. Her childhood was a tug-of-war between the traditional lifestyle and values of her Waorani people and the encroachment of the Western world. In this month’s cover story, British journalist and photographer Graeme Green interviews the Indigenous leader about her environmental activism and her successful fight to protect her forest home from oil drilling.

Also in this month’s issue: rewilding expert and Oxford academic Paul Jepson returns from Antarctica inspired by the strict visitor regulations that he believes should form a framework for how we interact with the natural world; Stuart Butler reports on the holy Indian city of Varanasi and the growing problem of human trafficking; historian and hill-lover Dawn Hollis considers what mountains mean to us today; and Mark Rowe’s travel guide to the Isle of Wight reveals how the island is changing.
