I’m introducing the film 'Free Solo' on Friday at the Adelaide Film Festival. It features Alex Honnold, the superhuman American free climber and his solo ascent of El Capitan, and the legendary outdoor film director Jimmy Chin. Alex is the world's best. If you’re a climber it’s depressing how good he is but inspiring for everyone else! This is us at the world premiere in New York recently on the red carpet, which is actually yellow carpet.

The new design @Nissan Leaf 40kWh electric batteries powered. Over 15% of the worlds carbon footprint currently comes from the transport sector and a big proportion of that is from cars. Innovation from companies like Nissan and the rise of electric vehicles is very exiting for our planet.
Appreciated the tour and the incredible work of the Tara and her crew mapping ocean health, it’s genome and plastic pollution.
Rhino with their horns. As nature intended. Proud to play a small part in their conservation with Zoos SA and Orana in Christchurch
A new definition of ‘on the rocks’ 😂 - Bottle of Shackleton recreation blend from Whyte and Mackay encased in ice. Remind you of anything?

@25zero_ Pushing 4800m for the last scramble to the summit of Mt Speke in the Rwenzori Mountains of western Uganda. To the right of the picture is the Congo. . Early European explorers visited the region in the search for the source of the Nile and it was John Speke that found it in 1862. . The glaciers in this region provide a valuable water source for those living here during the dry season when season ice melt fills the rivers. . Theres no need to point out what happens when they’ve disappeared. . Photo from expedition photographer @romain.levrault
Despite the most extreme of circumstances, Sir Ernest Shackleton recognised the importance of leadership and camaraderie, fostering a team spirit that led his crew to succeed against the most difficult of odds. #openforadventure #shackletonwhisky #finse @theshackletonwhisky

Dear friends, the team at @avaaz_org need your help. Right now bulldozers are clearing a tiny speck of rainforest where Earth's last 800 Tapanuli Orangutans cling to survival. It's all to build a hydropower dam that could push them to extinction. But Indonesia's President can still cancel the dam, and he wants to be seen as the people's president. So if we build a massive campaign and get huge media coverage - he could do it! Wildlife experts are meeting him in days and will deliver our call - so add your name to the petition before the diggers destroy their home! Register here (copy the link to your browser): https://secure.avaaz.org/campaign/en/save_the_tapanuli_orangutans_loc/? The Tapanuli Orangutans were only discovered months ago, and with fewer than 800 left, they instantly became the world's most endangered great ape species. Their only home is one shrinking patch of rainforest in Indonesia - and this hydropower dam would be built right in the middle of where they live! No wonder major development banks won't touch it. Orangutans are basically family - we share 97% of our DNA. They laugh at jokes, cry when sad, and can clearly tell what it means when the chainsaws arrive. We can't leave them to face that alone and be wiped out forever. So we have to stop this - together! Let's build a giant campaign to make them famous, help journalists expose the destruction, and take out media ads to push Indonesia's President to scrap the dam and save these desperate orangutans. Sign now and tell everyone!
