Photo by @daisygilardini | The Kermode bear is one of the rarest bears in the world. Due to a unique recessive gene, this subspecies of the American black bear has white or cream-colored fur.
Just 400 to 1,000 individuals are believed to remain in the Great Bear Rainforest, a 400-kilometer-long corridor along Canada’s west coast.
This unique ecosystem where everything is interdependent needs protection. Salmon are the natural link that connects the forest to the ocean through their cyclical spawning seasons. Bears will catch a fish and then drag it into the forest to eat. Birds and other mammals feed on the remains, while marine nutrients, along with the bear’s droppings, help fertilize the forest soil.

48 hours in Toronto 🇨🇦⁣

One of my favorite travel hacks is the stopover - where you break up a longer journey with a quick stop in the middle. This past weekend @expedia invited me to do a 48hr stopover in Toronto w/ @seetorontonow and @aircanada (link in bio for more info) - scroll through for some scenes from day 1 where we hit up the old downtown, distillery district, Queen street west, city hall and a Maple Leafs hockey game. If you have stopover questions or Toronto questions let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them in the comments 📝#torontostopover #openyourcuriosity

Oh and a big shoutout to @zachdriftwood for shooting the bts video of me at graffiti alley - a true Toronto classic 🎨

Photos by @carltonward | A large male panther emerges from a wildlife underpass that allows safe passage beneath State Road 80 near Labelle, Florida. The properties on either side of the road are private ranches that have been protected by perpetual conservation easements, funded by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and other partners. There was already a bridge at this site for cars and trucks to cross over a canal. By adding ledges to the sides of the canal (where TNC Conservation Projects Manager Wendy Mathews walks; third photo) and high fencing on either side of the bridge, conservationists were able to encourage panthers to cross beneath the road rather than through traffic above. Vehicles kill nearly 30 Florida panthers on roads each year—the leading cause of death for the endangered puma. With the pictured segment of the statewide Florida Wildlife Corridor secure, panthers and other wildlife can now move safely from large public lands up to the southern banks of the Caloosahatchee River and the northern Everglades beyond. The Caloosahatchee had been a long-standing barrier to the northward movement of female panthers until late 2016, when the first female panthers were detected on the north side of the river in nearly 50 years. For Florida panthers to reach sustainable numbers, they need access to their historic territory in central and north Florida.
