WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT! Sea otters and cameras, anyone? A new Conservation Photojournalism 7-Day Intensive is open for registration!
Sebastian Kennerknecht (@pumapix) and I are showing 6 students how to create a conservation photo story from concept to pitch. Gather in a house on the beach in Monterey Bay, enjoy catered meals from our private chef, and fill your brain with tons of information! During this week-long workshop, you’ll meet with people who are involved in various ways with the story of sea otters. You’ll create a story angle, develop a shot list, build your skills in photographing wildlife, landscapes and portraits of human subjects to tell your story, refine your images into a polished portfolio, and learn how to create a well-crafted pitch for an editor. You'll also take home a printed portfolio of your best work to show off to friends and family.
In addition to working with our nonprofit partners, you’ll also spend a full day on the water photographing sea otters. No one wants to miss that! Link in bio for registering! #wildlifephotography#conservationphotography#seaotters#montereybay#endangeredspecies

In study after study, pet owners are healthier and happier than non-pet owners. Lowering stress and boosting cardiovascular health, while ensuring you get your exercise (if your pet is a dog or cat that likes leashes 🐈or horse, llama, goat...). But most importantly caring for a pet feeds your heart and spirit, giving you unconditional love, a sense of belonging and interdependence. If you can’t care for a pet, to get a dose of four-footed love in your life, consider volunteering at shelters, fostering for short amounts of time, or offering to walk or care for friends’ pets. #bewellliving . #wellness .

Photo by @FransLanting For as long as anyone can remember, Monarch butterflies have fluttered from all over the American West to coastal California every fall to overwinter in a few sheltered places. In communities like Pacific Grove and Santa Cruz (my hometown for many years) their annual return has been as predictable as autumn colors are to people on the East Coast. I remember my amazement when I first saw them covering single trees by the thousands. But their wintering sites have become eerily quiet. A recent census by the Xerces Society confirms that the western Monarch population is in the midst of a catastrophic collapse. Their numbers have declined by more than 95% from more than ten million in the 1980s to a mere 20,000 today. The unthinkable is becoming a real possibility. Western Monarchs may go extinct if this trend continues. Researchers have not identified a single cause for this demise, but point to pesticides, habitat loss and drought as factors. Butterflies are barometers for an ecosystem’s health. When they go, we have reasons to worry, not just for them, but about ourselves too. It breaks my heart that a phenomenon that has been synonymous for generations with nature’s enduring cycles may turn into a new symbol for how seriously the balance of nature is being upset in our lifetime. What are your thoughts about this? Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom as we bear witness to our changing planet. @LeonardodiCapriofdn@Xercessociety@Thephotosociety#Monarchs#Endangered#Extinction#Nature#Butterfly#Santacruz#MontereyBay#California

“Сегодня исполняется шесть недель без сахара. Пробег 10 км в день, без мяса, молочных продуктов и муки. НЕТ кофеину! Изменение было фантастическим! Я прекрасно себя чувствую!
Здоровая диета, без глютена и 2-х часовая тренировка каждый день. Никогда не чувствовала себя лучше!”
Не знаю, чей это статус, но я действительно горжусь его автором! Потому я решила скопировать и вставить.... Не стесняйтесь делать то же самое!

What’s your favorite piece of dive gear? This is my cold water kit. This is what I wear when I’m diving in cold water in California and British Columbia, or even at home in Colorado. @hollisdive DX300x drysuit, @atomic_aquatics BC1, T3 regulator, Subframe mask and BladeFins. @suuntodive EON Steel wireless computer. BC1 is my favorite piece of gear for shizzle. Photo: @hiimjoe88.
