Video by @CristinaMittermeier and @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. Follow @CristinaMittermeier, @PaulNicklen and @Sea_Legacy to learn more about the efforts to #GetFishFarmsOut of the Broughton Archipelago in British Columbia, Canada.

The sun sets over Grand Falls on the Little Colorado River in Arizona. "This view shows the effect of summer rains over the desert," explains #YourShotPhotographer Bernhard Michaelis, "resulting in muddy flows which give the falls another name: Chocolate Falls."

During the fall months, millions of Pacific salmon run up the rivers and small tributaries along this biodiversity rich region. With the scent of salmon rolling up the hills, bears descend from the berry and crab apple patches to do their final feast of the season before their long winter's sleep. Southern Resident Orcas need to capture and feed on at least half a million Chinook salmon a year in order to grow their critically low numbers. Open-net Atlantic fish farms threaten the ebb and flow of this natural world. To learn more about why we need to #GetFishFarmsOut of the Broughton Archipelago, #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier

Becoming a hairdresser was a natural evolution for 21-year-old Yesfira Sidorenko (@yesfira). “In ninth grade, I got interested in doing hair from watching online tutorials, and started practicing on my little sisters,” says Yesfira, who was born in Latvia and lives in Alaska. “After high school, I decided to go to cosmetology school, got a job as a hairdresser, and this is where I am today.” Braids were one of Yesfira’s earliest styles she worked to perfect, and she’s stuck with them through the years, adding in more complex twists, waves and updos for weddings and special occasions. “If I were going to #prom today, I would wear my hair in a loose mermaid wave, with my hair tucked to one side with a clip.”
