British Columbia, Canada, 2019
The thick fog curled in shadowy tendrils rising from the tree tops and settling over the river. In the distance, I could just make out the silhouettes of two brown bears moving steadily through the frigid waters. Here in the heart of British Columbia, grizzlies like this pair seem almost tiny in their massive range of towering pines and sprawling streams. No matter how big or small, there is a place for all of us on this beautiful planet. All we have to do to ensure cohabitation is keep our green and wild spaces thriving.
