CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOT A HOAX

As most of you know, I am a Senior Founding Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. We just created 1Frame4Nature to share our dedication to conservation and to encourage everyone to participate.  Our letter states, in part,

“We are all connected. The water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat unite us in caring for our world.

“The Fellows of the International League of Conservation Photographers are dedicated to furthering conservation and the health of nature through their photography.  They do so by sharing their pictures and stories of what they hold most dear - their connections to the land, water, wildlife, and all of nature for the nourishment of both our bodies and spirits.

“1Frame4Nature (1F4N) is an iLCP led campaign that aims to use our Fellows’ images and stories to encourage online audiences, the general public, to share their images and stories of their own personal connection to nature.”

Share your #1Frame4Nature images and stories here! 1Frame4Nature.org and while you are on the site, check out my images about climate change and its potential effect on south Florida. Climate Change Is Real.

iLCP Senior Founding Fellow and Board of Directors, Connie, spent a week in Washington at WILDSpeak

with her international conservation photographer colleagues.  Steve Winter keynoted Big Cats — remember the photo of the panther on a ridge in front of the HOLLYWOOD sign? — while Brian Skerry brought us Luminous Seas - his are the memorable shark images — while Sandesh Kadur explored India’s Mountains of Life. Many awesome others. We need, now, especially, to support conservation efforts not only for our precious Everglades (Guardians of the Everglades, of course), but also conservation around the world.  iLCP members bring the beauty and need for care to all of us.  It’s past Giving Tuesday, but not too late to make your 2016 tax deductible contributions to Guardians of the Everglades - http://www.wifv.org/events/#id=245&cid=783&wid=401 or to the International League of Conservation Photographers - http://www.give2gether.com/projects/focus-on-conservation-2016.babyrat/  

WE ALL NEED TO STEP UP NOW!

Beautiful, too. Let's keep it all safe forever.
