At more than 15 feet long, weighing up to 1,000 pounds, and living for as many as 100 years, the Chinese sturgeon is a large fresh water fish, though it does spend part of its life-cycle in seawater, like the salmon. Along with the giant panda, the 140-million year-old species is a symbol of national pride, and is also in danger of becoming extinct due to human's negative impact on its habitat. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

Standing an average of 43 inches tall and around 350 pounds, giant pandas live for about 25 years - and much of that time is spent eating. A giant panda can consume as much as 83 pounds of bamboo per day. Though bamboo is 99% of their diet, pandas may eat other foods such as honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, and bananas.

Whereas most bears have round pupils, giant pandas have vertical slits, like cats' eyes - a feature that has inspired the Chinese to call the panda the "great bear cat." Though still endangered, organizations like the Wolong Nature Reserve have successfully reintroduced the species into the wild, increasing its numbers to an estimated 1,600 pandas. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

The yak is a shaggy-haired, hoofed animal found in Tibet and parts of China, surviving as high as 20,000 feet in the Himalayas, in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius. The yak was domesticated some 5,000 years ago and is kept primarily for its milk, fur fibers, and meat, as well as to pull loads and plow fields. Butter made of yaks' milk is mixed with tea leaves and salt to make yak butter tea, a traditional Tibetan drink served to guests.

An estimated 1,600 giant pandas now survive in the wild, in a few mountain ranges in the central Chinese provinces of Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu. Pandas once roamed lowland areas, but were chased out by farming, forest clearing, and other human development. Once nearing extinction, recent efforts to preserve and multiply the population have revitalized the species.

To communicate and socialize, orcas raise their tails high and slap them down on the surface of the water, which is called lob-tailing. They also use a beautiful and complex language of clicks and whistles, which mothers teach to their offspring. Resident pods even have their own unique dialects. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

Orcas have a close-knit family structure and most stay with their mothers throughout life. The Center for Whale Research on San Juan Island photographs the dorsal fins of each whale as a way of identifying them and keeping track of the different pods. They estimate that the matriarch of one of the families is more than 90 years old. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

Orcas are often called wolves of the sea because they hunt in packs, cooperatively herding fish into a tight circle. They stun the corralled fish by slapping them with their tails and then eat them one by one. On average, a killer whale eats 500 lbs. of food every day. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

When pursuing prey, cheetahs can go from zero to sixty miles-per-hour in less than 3.5 seconds - an acceleration rate that is faster than most high-performance sports cars. The chase usually lasts less than a minute.

Tanzania is home to some of Africa's most striking geographic features, including the famous Mount Kilimanjaro and Lake Tanganyika, the worlds second deepest lake. But it is the also the site of the Serengeti - which means "endless plains" in Maasai language - a vast expanse of land that houses the most concentrated collection of wildlife in Africa, from fleet-footed gazelles to slow-ranging buffalo. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

Spyhopping is when orcas vertically propel themselves halfway out of the water and stay there for a moment, akin to a human treading water. They do this to sneak a peek at their surroundings above the surface - most commonly for food, but also just to see how close they are to shore. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

The forests of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula are home to herds of wild boars, also known as wild pigs or peccaries. Hot-tempered and foul-smelling, the boars are notorious for their fickle behavior. They typically avoid humans, but can be very aggressive if threatened. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.
