"Nature and I have been constant companions throughout my life. It was nature that brought me to Minnesota. I moved here to establish myself as a wildlife photographer. It took a few years, but then there I was traveling around the country, working on state-specific nature field guides with author Stan Tekiela. ⁠ ⁠ During those adventures, I noticed the lack of ethnic diversity in the outdoors and I thought, “How can our cities be so diverse, people of all colors everywhere, but in the outdoors it’s almost exclusively White?” ⁠ ⁠ Organizations that work on conservation and the environment are too often predominantly White in their leadership, staffing, and membership. The Nature Conservancy is no exception. They must realize that African Americans and other People of Color are essential to their present and future success. People of Color will increasingly be the stewards of our lands and waters." –Dudley Edmondson ⁠ ⁠ Thank you to @sonycamera2016 for his personal accounts and insights as an African American conservationist.

Earlier this week, TNC was grateful to receive a generous donation from MacKenzie Scott in support of our U.S climate action efforts and Blue Bonds for conservation.⁠ ⁠ So what exactly are Blue Bonds? In short, we work with island and coastal countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the West Indian Ocean to restructure their national debt, freeing up long term funding to improve marine area management and create new marine protected areas in 20 countries over the next five years. This effort has the potential to protect up to 1.5 million square miles (4 million km2) of the world’s most biodiversity-critical ocean habitats. They help build capacity, engage in multiple countries around the world to structure and close deals quickly, launch the science and planning to work to ensure successful conservation outcomes, and establish systems of governance for the long-term protection of coastal and ocean areas. ⁠ ⁠ More on our audacious plan to save the world's oceans– now one step closer to reality–via our link in bio! 💚⁠ ⁠ #oceans #oceanconservation #seychelles #bluebonds #climateaction #marineprotection 📸: @jasonbhouston

Lake Erie marsh at dawn in @nature_mi The five Great Lakes hold one-fifth of the world’s surface freshwater, play a key role in influencing our climate, and provide drinking water to nearly 40 million people in the United States and Canada. TNC and its Canadian partners have launched an unprecedented binational effort to work with partners to make the Great Lakes among the best-managed ecosystems in the world by protecting more than 1 million acres, including 20 priority watersheds and 15 coastal areas across the Great Lakes. 💚⁠ ⁠ #lakeerie #michigan #naturephotography #photography #placesweprotect #landandwater 📸: Ron Leonetti

Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 310-107 to approve the Great American Outdoors Act, which would fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and make critical investments in our national park system and other public lands. It's a huge success that will leave a legacy for our children and our future. ⁠ ⁠ Said CEO @jenmorrisnature “At a time when our country needs to create jobs and rebuild local economies while also protecting nature and places where everyone can recreate outdoors, the Great American Outdoors Act answers the call on all fronts. This victory would not have happened without the dedication of many champions, and they have our deepest gratitude.” ⁠ ⁠ The full press release on this win for nature, via our link in bio! 🌱☀️⁠ ⁠ #winfornature #lwcf #greatamericanoutdoorsact #unitedstateslwcf #landandwaterconservationfund #legacy #naturelegacy #nature #naturephotography 📸: @nickhallphoto

"I love a good challenge. I have spent my entire career finding them and tackling them. As a marine biologist who has mostly worked with coral reefs in stunning and exotic locations, it might surprise you that lately, I have developed a bit of an obsession with toilets, sewage, and all things poop and pee. Not what you were expecting? Same. But the thing is – now that I know that human excreta is finding its way into our coastal waters at alarming levels and that in turn, it is causing lots of problems for coastal habitats…and that most people are unaware of this problem…and few are trying to solve it…(thanks to it being invisible, taboo, and complex)…well, I just can’t stop thinking about it. So my days are now entirely focused on sharing just how serious this particular form of ocean pollution is and how common it is. For example, NYC discharges about 27 billion gallons of untreated sewage into the Hudson River basin every year. Hawaii estimates that their 88,000+ cesspools are leaking about 53 million gallons of raw sewage into their groundwater every day. So my task lately has been to raise awareness about this, find people that want to solve this problem and bring them together so that we can put an end to this very solvable problem. One thing is for sure – working to protect our planet and our oceans is not boring – and the path to doing so is definitely full of unexpected twists and turns." –@heystephwear ⁠ ⁠ Stephanie Wear is a marine ecologist and conservation strategy advisor based out of North Carolina. Throughout her career, Dr. Wear has focused on researching and developing new strategies to reduce threats to coral reefs and ocean ecosystems, paying special attention to how the fates of reefs and people are intertwined. On July 30th, Dr. Wear will be featured in a webinar with @conserve_mass and sharing innovative and out-of-the-box ways in which we can sustain ocean ecosystems.

Safari tourism has long been an economic boon to people living in @nature_africa But the suspension of flights and safari visits because of the COVID-19 pandemic has decimated this critical source of income—and devastated the wildlife conservation efforts it funds. The repercussions for flora and fauna are far-reaching. Anything with a horn or tusk is at greater risk today than yesterday. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The economics of wildlife reserves are somewhat opaque, and few visitors to the parks and reserves understand their significance to their business models. At least half their revenue—and in some cases all of it—comes from tourism. The money is used to protect wildlife by paying operating costs, employing rangers, and maintaining security. These places are the economic lifeblood of the regions they serve. Many support local schools and health clinics and employ local people—who might otherwise work in charcoal production and bushmeat hunting—in nature-based jobs.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This was supposed to be a “super year” for biodiversity. Instead, the world is facing a shocking, real-time need for action. That is why TNC and other environmental NGOs are calling for 30 percent of the Earth’s surface to be protected by 2030, through the so-called 30x30 commitment. To build a world in which humans “do no harm” and create space for nature to flourish, a broad swath of private protected areas—such as forests that are lightly, sustainably logged, and marine protected areas that allow only for small-scale, sustainable fishing—will also be needed. Such diversification is necessary in order to ensure fiscal and environmental health. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Despite the challenges, there is no reason that we can’t deliver net gains for nature. The continent, its inhabitants, and the world depend on it.

On July 15, 2010, the recovery of the Gulf of Mexico truly began. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill was officially capped, giving Gulf communities the opportunity to finally look forward, and begin the process of considering what recovery could truly mean. Here is a look at some of what The Nature Conservancy and our partners have been doing over the past decade... and what we see for the future.

Food is more than something we eat to survive—it’s a part of how we thrive. To break bread together is a social ritual—for some a holy ritual—that transcends time and culture. Asked what they’ve missed the most during COVID-mandated isolation, many people will say sharing meals with friends and family.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Of course, if the worst you’ve experienced is a loss of communal eating, you are among the lucky—it means we still have food in our homes and the good health and strength enjoy it. But that’s not something any of us can count on indefinitely if we continue to produce food in ways that degrade the planet and exacerbate climate change.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We face an existential challenge, yet there is an elegant solution rooted in nature. Our pivot to a regenerative food system must happen quickly, though—over the next decade. It requires purposeful innovation, global coordination, and a willingness to confront entrenched interests. But the future that awaits us if we do nothing is far worse than dining alone.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ More on a sustainable food system to restore the planet via our link in bio! 🌱
