A common yucca in West Texas, the Torrey Yucca (Yucca torreyi) blooms bold on the landscape. Pollinated by yucca moths at night, the plant and moth have co-evolved to have a relationship known as obligate mutualism. This is an exclusive, biological relationship in which both organisms rely on each other for survival. The moth cross-pollinates the plant, and in return is the host plant for eggs and larvae that are laid in its blossom. E.

Happy World Rainforest Day!
Rainforests are some of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. They’re home to about half of all plant and animal species on the planet! However, these biomes are constantly in danger due to deforestation for monetary gains. One such undertaking has companies tearing down rainforests to grow palm oil palms whose oil is used in foods, soaps, waxes, toothpastes, lubricants, and inks. Not only are animals suffering habitat loss, but losing keystone species like the orangutans, who disperse fruits seeds throughout the rainforests, throws off the balance in the rainforests amongst the trees and plant species. #nopalmoil #quitpalmoil #readyourlabels #useyourspendingpower #spendingpowertoaffectchange 🚫🌴#saveourrainforests #rainforest #worldrainforestday

FACTS ABOUT RAINFORESTS via @thenatureconservancy :
(🔗 in bio for full list)
🌿Rainforests act as the world's thermostat by regulating temperatures and weather patterns.
🌿One-fifth of the world's fresh water is found in the Amazon Basin.
🌿Rainforests are critical in maintaining the Earth's limited supply of drinking and fresh water.
🌿A typical four-square-mile patch of rainforest contains as many as 1,500 flowering plants, 750 species of trees, 400 species of birds and 150 species of butterflies.
🌿Rainforests provide many important products for people: timber, coffee, cocoa and many medicinal products, including those used in the treatment of cancer.
🌿Seventy percent of the plants identified by the U.S. National Cancer Institute as useful in the treatment of cancer are found only in rainforests.
🌿Rainforests are threatened by unsustainable agricultural, ranching, mining and logging practices.
🌿Originally, 6 million square miles of tropical rainforest existed worldwide. But as a result of deforestation, only 2.4 million square miles remain.

Open-net Atlantic fish farms have been contaminating the pristine waters of coastal British Columbia for more than twenty years, with scientists and Indigenous communities have been raising the alarm about the issue the entire time. As evidence mounts, we now know that these destructive farms are not just an Indigenous problem. They concern everyone because we all depend on healthy and abundant oceans. A recent poll shows that three in four British Columbians want these farms banned. Today, we are launching #GetFishFarmsOut, our call to the Provincial and Federal Governments of Canada to do the right thing. They campaigned on a promise to ensure the salmon farming industry does not endanger wild Pacific salmon. Yet, this is exactly what is happening.

Important info from our friends at @pnwprotectors.
"We can do our part to fight this heartbreaking and mindless practice by simply choosing not to support the consumption of farmed and wild salmon.
Eating farmed salmon literally supports disease. Eating farmed salmon supports the decline and death of the wild salmon due to the viruses spread throughout the Salish Sea by these barbaric practices.
During this pivotal time, let’s together make daily decisions which will bring about health and well being for the Salmon and Orcas by choosing to refrain from consuming zombie farmed salmon and wild salmon because ultimately where you spend your money is where you vote and right now, eating salmon leads to the extinction of two species: the Wild Salmon and The Southern Resident Orcas.
・・・
BREAKING: The @BCNDP has failed our coast. John Horgan is allowing all 20 fish farm tenures in the Broughton Archipelago to continue—business as usual—on a so-called month-to-month basis for up to four years. Not one farm. Not one single fish farm will stop operation, based on recent media reports. That’s four more years of wild salmon runs that must contend with sea lice, piscine reovirus, HSMI disease, and pollution. That’s four more years of southern resident killer whales starving due to diminished chinook salmon stocks. Four more years of collapsing wild salmon populations. Most importantly—and most subversively—four more years gives Norwegian companies like Marine Harvest and Cermaq the time they need to ensure their farms will continue operating until the next government comes along to announce another four years of advisory councils and process. @JohnHorgan4BC and @LanaPopham, you had an opportunity to protect wild salmon and you failed. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Herring feed this coast!
Swipe to see how many are being caught and killed in open net-pen salmon farms. Once trapped in the pens, these WILD herring will be either eaten by the farmed salmon or die when the pen is harvested.
How many wild herring die each year in salmon farms?

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.

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.

On the shore of the South Central Chile, this modern gatherer is looking for any food; mollusks, crustaceans, sea urchins, maybe a chilean abalone in between the seaweeds.

Theres not a possibility to live gathering anymore, theres no many resources and the fishery are poor because of the industrial overexploitation.

Recently a investigator from the Center for Climate and Resilience Reseach (CR)2 published "The ocean suffocates: oxygen levels got lower in the Sea threaten the chilean coastline"

In fact, if the oceanographic buoy reveals the hypoxia events are getting longer and the oxygen concentration lower, could be the responsable of many mollusks, fish and crustaceans massive deaths (http://www.cr2.cl/posar). How much impact can have the destruction of the Patagonian Archipelago along the northern coastline of Chile, if the salmonfarms still polluting the fjords and making the Ocean poor in oxygen?
What about the oxygen flow from the rivers coming down from the Andes mountain range if the dams, mining, deforestation and many industry are functioning?

In a country as Chile, most of the nutrients, oxygen and temperature regulation goes from South to North underwater and through the air.
Which conditions we gonna have in the future if the industry expands to the most and last pristine part of Chilean coast?

Budidaya Ikan Salmon sistem KJA di British Columbia, kata siapa perikanan itu suram ? #dasarorangawam

Regrann from @paulnicklen - Today, the British Columbia Provincial Government renewed tenures for 20 open-net Atlantic salmon fish farms in the province’s largest marine park, the Broughton Archipelago, on a month-to-month basis. In doing so, they broke their campaign promise to implement the Cohen Commission’s recommendations to protect wild salmon. They also introduced a new requirement for these farms to secure First Nations’ consent, but this doesn’t come into effect until after the next provincial election. Governments have a duty to protect our wild salmon. These announcements do nothing to address the environmental impact of open-net Atlantic salmon fish farms, nor do they promote evidence-based decision-making.

On the surface, today's @BCNDP announcement regarding fish farm tenure status appears to simply delay action for four years. However, there is a flash of silver hope in these murky waters, if the NDP chooses to do the right thing for the Broughton Archipelago.

Here’s the good news: Discussions between the NDP and Musgamagw Dzawada'enuxw and other First Nations in the Broughton are ongoing. While the announced four-year transition period applies to most of B.C.’s 120 fish farms, the fate of farms specifically in the Broughton Archipelago is still being discussed. What this means exactly remains to be seen, but one thing is crystal clear—more pressure is needed if these farms are going to come out of B.C. waters. Has your voice been heard in support of wild salmon?

It’s so sad that the decision of a few has such a far-reaching domino effect on the many..decimate the food source for so many keystone species and we will get to see how the beautiful creatures the salmon feed will fall in turn, and how the ecosystems that depend on these species will follow in their wake...all while the few are lining their pockets with money they make off selling their disgusting diseased fish for food (to us, gross).

Open-net Atlantic salmon fish farms are a danger to precious wild salmon populations that are a source of food to many important species (ourselves included), in that they spread disease to those wild salmon who happen to swim by during their migration for spawning. I wanted to repost this for @sealegacy who is working to not have tenures for the currently operating open-net Atlantic salmon farms renewed. Link 🔗 in their bio shows what you can do to help! #GetFishFarmsOut #saveouroceans #wevegot99problemsandopennetfishfarmsareoneofthem 🌊🌊🌊 #happyoceanhappylife 🐋🐬🦀🐠🦑🐟🐡

Casi iniciando el invierno de 2018 y sólo ha nevado dos veces en Puerto Natales. Los inviernos cortos ya son casi una costumbre y se ha manifestado desde los últimos cinco años.
Esta serie muestra invierno con nieve el 2012 e invierno seco el 2016.
La gente de campo y los que cultivan la tierra saben, que a pesar que un invierno malo puede significar pérdidas, esa nieve acumulada es reserva de agua para la crecida de pasto y para soportar sequías en verano.

Aunque se ve el retroceso de los glaciares a simple vista en la Patagonia, la falta de nevadas también es un hecho constatable año a año.

Open-net Fish Farming is a science experiment gone wrong. . . And WE, the consumers, the buying public, will eventually pay the price for funding the survival of these businesses through our continued purchases. ANY thinking businessman will not invest in a dying venture. And this applies to all kinds of businesses including the trade of shark meat and its byproducts, endangered animal parts, to the continued packaging in single use, non biodegradable materials, including our dependence on fossil fuels. It's the simplest Law of Economics, The Law of Supply and Demand. Businesses will cease if there is no profit to be made.

This post comes from our friends in the conservation and preservation of life at Sea Legacy @sea_legacy led by Conservation Photojournalists and Filmmakers, Paul Nicklen @paulnicklen and Cristina Mittermeier @cristinamittermeier - Open-net Atlantic fish farms have been contaminating the pristine waters of coastal British Columbia for more than twenty years, with scientists and Indigenous communities have been raising the alarm about the issue the entire time. As evidence mounts, we now know that these destructive farms are not just an Indigenous problem. They concern everyone because we all depend on healthy and abundant oceans. A recent poll shows that three in four British Columbians want these farms banned. Today, we are launching #GetFishFarmsOut, our call to the Provincial and Federal Governments of Canada to do the right thing.

Estos antiguos troncos de Coigüe no fueron arrastrados por las mareas ni cayeron del monte a la costa de playa. Fueron instalados por pescadores antiguos, que recolectaban mariscos y calaban redes para capturar pejerreyes y róbalos en la Bahía Desengaño, hacia el Sur de Puerto Natales. Con los troncos podían varar sus embarcaciones y arrancharse.

Este varadero pasó a ser un vestigio de tiempos en los que algunas familias se dedicaban a la pesca y recolección de orilla, para vender sus productos frescos o ahumados en la ciudad.

Hoy simplemente no queda nada: contaminación y salmones escapados de las balsas jaulas en el fiordo es lo que hay. Cualquier buzo local que conoce el área va a decir no mismo "el fondo marino está muerto y ya no se puede trabajar"

Video by @Sea_Legacy // When it’s gone, it’s gone forever. The biodiversity in this pristine ecosystem is unlike any other in the world and worth protecting. Yet, the Provincial and Federal Governments of Canada continue to put it at risk by allowing open-net Atlantic salmon 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 the trees to grow to an impressive size. Without wild Pacific salmon, this entire ecosystem will suffer. Check the link in my bio to join us in the campaign to #GetFishFarmsOut.

15 years ago, representatives from the Heiltsuk and Nuxalk First Nations blockaded a hatchery in Ocean Falls, B.C.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These communities protested before, during and after the hatchery's construction. They fought it on the ground and through the legal system, all along citing strong concerns about the risk of disease transmission to wild salmon.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward to today on #WorldOceansDay, there is proof that the companies doing fin fish aquaculture in B.C.—current Ocean Falls hatchery owner Marine Harvest included—are responsible for spreading piscine reovirus to wild salmon. If we didn't listen to our coastal guardians then, and we won’t do it now, when will we act?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Northwest Hereditary Leaders of the Great Bear Rainforest show solidarity with the ‘Namgis and Musgamagw Dzawada'enuxw First Nations in their current fight against fish farms in the Broughton Archipelago.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s heed the ancient wisdom of First Nations, the science of our own government, and common sense. #GetFishFarmsOut now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want to help protect wild salmon, contact B.C. Premier @JohnHorgan4BC and ask him not to renew tenure on 20 farms this upcoming June 20th.

When everybody is talking and talking about the plastic pollution and save the Ocean. Here in the heart of the Southern Patagonia we have all in one package!

Is unbeleivable how in the 2018 a 42 year old industry still destroying a very important environment for the planet balance, and guess what!? Is only because of somebody's money, people down bellow doesnt count.

The industrialization of the wind and glaciers land is a fact, but people is so deep involve in the happy life so theres no time to say NO.
But how is gonna be the weather when the carbon emissions increase and the glaciers got melted in the last part of the Patagonian Archipelago?

"Wild Atlantic salmon, like those pictured here, are in precipitous decline writes @nickhawkinsphotography. "A State of the Population report published yesterday indicates that, in the past year alone, their numbers diminished by 15 percent. There is equal concern with wild salmon populations on the Pacific coast. The science is clear: it’s due in part to open-pen salmon farms spreading disease to wild fish. Although well-intentioned, tightening regulation just isn’t the answer. Salmon farming must move to solid ground. Viable alternatives to open-net do exist, and they are the only way to eliminate the threat to wild salmon stocks and sensitive marine ecosystems.
Tenures on 20 open-net salmon farms are coming up for renewal in the Broughton Archipelago on June 20th. We are asking the Province of British Columbia and the Federal Government to do the right thing and #GetFishFarmsOut by not renewing them. This decision will move us towards an innovative and sustainable land-based industry, as well as healthy wild salmon populations and the coastal communities that depend on them." #TurningTheTide with @sea_legacy @justinpjtrudeau @johnhorgan4bc @adamphillipolsen @lanapopham @georgeheyman

L92 "Crewser" a 23 year old male, has been declared missing after not being seen with his family on multiple occasions. In more realistic terms, we've lost another critically endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale.
When I started working with Orcas and photographing them 4 years ago, there were only 81 SRKW left, then a baby boom happened and 9 were born in a year. Fast forward to today and with the loss of L92 we are at 75 individuals.
A different population from the Northern Residents I usually share, the Southern Residents are a different population. They do not interbreed, they speak different languages, and are culturally different even though they are both fish eating Orca populations.
Because the Southern Residents are closer to major cities like Vancouver, Victoria, and Seattle they were hit harder by the aquarium trade. Now they are struggling to recover due to other pressures such as vessel traffic/disturbance, starvation from decreasing food supply being caused by over fishing and open net salmon farms, and toxins and pollutants in the ocean and their prey.
A simple way for people to help these whales is to stop the use of single use plastics, and do not eat farmed Atlantic Salmon

PETITION: An increasing amount of evidence shows that Fisheries and Oceans Canada has neglected to properly manage and regulate open-net Atlantic salmon farms on the British Columbian coast. Indigenous communities have led the way in the call to move to land-based systems, and now many of the region's top chefs, commercial fishers, health professionals and tourism operators are joining the push as well. These destructive farms are a problem for everyone because we all depend on healthy and abundant oceans.

Warning: graphic and disturbing content // Photograph donated by John and Jane Doe // In 2001, I photographed my first major assignment for @natgeo on the fish farming industry. I went in as a naïve, young and unbiased journalist. Two years and five countries later, I was horrified by this industry. I have now been a part of this fight for over 17 years. We need to, now more than ever, #GetFishFarmsOut. Science shows that open-net Atlantic salmon farming is destructive to ecosystems, and especially to wild fish stocks. This industry uses more antibiotics and pesticides than any other livestock industry on Earth. Fish farms house sea lice infestations that are collapsing some wild trout and salmon stocks. The industry also uses a chemical colorant in their feed to give fish flesh—which is otherwise pale—a bright orange colour, and things have only became worse—a lot worse. The salmon farming industry's fish are infected with Piscine reovirus (PRV), which is a highly contagious blood virus that causes heart disease in salmon. An infected salmon farm can shed up to 60 billion infectious virus particles per hour...let that soak in. Wild salmon are not built to survive if infected by PRV and many may die before being able to complete their epic journey upstream to spawn.

On June 20, tenures for 20 open-net Atlantic salmon farms in the Broughton Archipelago, British Columbia, are set to expire. Premier John Horgan, @johnhorgan4bc, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, @justinpjtrudeau, have the opportunity to make real change happen by not renewing these tenures. We too have the ability to make real change happen. The choices you make, every day, are an important part of that change. One of the easiest ways to help create healthy and abundant oceans is by being an informed and conscious consumer. #KnowYourSalmon is our challenge to you, ocean lovers, to learn the difference between wild salmon and open-net farmed Atlantic salmon. Check the link in my bio to learn more. Together, we are #TurningTheTide.
