Video by @PaulNicklen // When it’s gone, it’s gone forever. The biodiversity in this pristine ecosystem is unlike any other in the world and it is worth protecting. Yet, the Provincial and Federal Governments of Canada continue to put it at risk by allowing open-net Atlantic fish farms to operate across critical marine habitat. Diseases from these open-net containment pens spread to the local wild salmon, and their populations are declining. Salmon are a bio-rich nutrient delivery mechanism that feeds the entire ecosystem – from orcas and seals – to eagles and spirit bears. After these predators feast, the leftover fish carcasses, packed with nitrogen, act as a fertilizer for the rainforest, allowing trees to grow to impressive sizes. Without wild Pacific salmon, this entire ecosystem will suffer.

Photo @ladzinski / A #GreatEgret taking flight in the #Florida wetlands. These birds were nearly hunted to extinction for their feathers to be used for hats in the early 1900’s. Since that time they have made a tremendous comeback and can be found on 6 of the worlds 7 continents. To see more photos of egrets please visit @ladzinski

Photograph by @CristinaMittermeier // when I asked Gwantilakw Hunt Cranmer how she feels about the inaction of the canadian government on getting fish farms out of the water, she yelled her anger from the shoreline on Cormorant Island. She is frustrated that the food her people have relied on for thousands of years is becoming threatened by industrial fish farms. She has spent all of her eighteen years knowing foreign companies have been ruining the waters of her traditional territory with open-net Atlantic Fish Farms. These farms have been operating in the Broughton Archipelago, British Columbia, despite demands to get them out that began before she was born. #FollowMe @CristinaMittermeier to learn more about the campaign to #GetFishFarmsOut.
A collaboration with @amivitale. Wild elephants make their way through the shrubby landscape of the #Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya. The conservancy surrounds the Mathews Range and serves as a critical wildlife refuge for many species and particularly important for #elephant as they move seasonally between the Mathews Range and the Mt. Kenya and Ngare Ndare Forest, a route they have been using for decades. According to the most recent census, there are over 7,000 #elephants in the region, an increase of 12% over the past 5 years. Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy is home to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. Learn more about how you can get involved and help support this vital initiative by following @amivitale.@r.e.s.c.u.e & @conservationorg Thank you to @danehenrydigital @brettlowell @davematthewsband @r.e.s.c.u.e & @conservationorg for all your help! @nrt_kenya @kenyawildlifeservice @lewa_wildlife @sandiegozoo @tusk_org @thephotosociety @natgeo @coreyrichproductions @novusselect #protectelephants #bekindtoelephants #DontLetThemDisappear #elephants #saveelephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #photojournalism #amivitale
