The words may sound silly, but the event is anything but. It looks like pollution is getting so severe in Peru's Lake Titicaca that it's seriously harming an already critically endangered species. Recently, hundreds of Titicaca water frogs (known as "scrotum frogs" for their very baggy skin) have been found floating dead in the waters of Lake Titicaca in Peru, the only place the species can be found in the world.

Named after Lord Stanley (he of the hockey cup fame), it is over 1000 acres of pristine beauty.

Wrapped is an art film that shows what happens when you don't clean up the streets. Don't let that description stop you, because this is beautiful. Directed by Roman Kaelin, Florian Wittmann, and Falko Paeper, it is an award-winning graduation film from Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg.

A mountain has been officially downgraded to a hill - after missing out on the title by just 23 millimetres. Surveyors ruled that Moelwyn Mawr in the Snowdonia range is no longer a mountain after it failed to measure up to the guidelines set out for summits.
