“For the first time” ever, researchers have conducted a study on the most effective dose of an urban nature experience to counteract the effects of modern stress. That stress kills over time with high-cortisol levels that promote inflammation in the body with a corrosive, degenerative effective on key organs and psychological wellbeing.

Namibian model; Victoria’s Secret Angel; mom to two-year-old Dusty and 11-month old Gio; and Mrs. Adam (Maroon frontman) Levine, Behati Prinsloo covers the January 2019 issue of Porter Edit. Morgan Pilcher styles Behati in earth-color, utilitarian luxury outerwear and casual looks for ‘The Wild One’, lensed by Alexandra Nataf. Behati shares her thoughts and experiences in her own words.
Born and raised in Namibia, Behati Prinsloo left her country to pursue modeling at age 15. While she hasn’t looked back, Behati has always maintained her ties to her home continent and country, influenced now by her friend Doutzen Kroes to join the animal conservation movement. Doutzen is well-known for her work with elephant charities, and she put Prinsloo in touch with Save The Rhino Trust in Namibia.
If our generation doesn’t try to end poaching, the rhinos simply won’t be there one day. I am so close to this land, it’s where I’m from. I’m going to do a film with the rhino trackers to try and shed light on the situation. If I only save one rhino it will still be worth it.
AOC and GlamTribal Design are well-versed on big game conservation, and while Prinsloo’s comments are spot on, the reality of the situation around poaching is so much more complicated.
Just last night I learned that there’s a new move to declare the 10,000 years extinct woolly mammoth an endangered species, cutting off the supply of mammoth ivory. Initially, many conservationists supported the move to keep mammoth ivory available, thinking it would take the pressure off elephant poaching. Because it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between mammoth ivory and elephant ivory, international crime syndicates are now shipping illegal elephant ivory with legal mammoth ivory. There is no end to human greed for ivory.
