Today I have a photo in the New York Times illustrating the latest work by the University of Washington’s Center for Conservation Biology in the oil sands area of Alberta, Canada. 

Read the article in the NYT:

It seems that, once again, humans and human activity, such as roads and environmental exploitation, are more of a threat to large ungulates than wolves.

The Conservation Canines of the Center for Conservation Biology are providing much needed data that gives a more accurate picture of what is happening to Caribou and Wolves.

Summer Arrives with Fremont Solstice Parade

BLOG: Solstice Parade 2011! – Images by Art Wolfe

The Solstice Parade is a great Northwestern tradition. Every year it takes place in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, the self-styled “Center of the Universe.” It is a rich and colorful venue and a great place to take photos. Last year I was able to get a few shots that made it into my book coming out this fall “Dogs Make Us Human.” Now I am working on a new book which is a look at children from all over the world. It wouldn’t be complete without a photo or two from the center of the universe!

On Location: OREGON

On Location: Oregon June 2011 #1 – Images by Art Wolfe

I took off on Wednesday for a short trip through Oregon with friends. Just upriver of the Hanford Reach on the Columbia, we saw a few white pelicans on their way to breeding grounds in both Canada and the US. I just love this part of Washington and Oregon—while it is only a few hours from the population centers of Seattle and Portland, it has a wonderful feel of solitude. A colder, wetter spring has come late to the region, and there is still lots of snow on the mountains, which is a lovely backdrop to the rural landscape.

Merci Montréal!

BLOG: Montreal May 2011 – Images by Art Wolfe

Last weekend I was in Montreal to give my presentation of “Between Heaven and Earth” for Photo Life magazine. It’s a beautiful city and I spent a few moments relaxing and photographing families and kids playing in the fountains of Place des Festivals.

Endangered Species Day!

BLOG: Endangered Species Day 2011 – Images by Art Wolfe

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and numerous conservation organizations observe Endangered Species Day on May 20, 2011, to recognize conservation efforts underway across the nation aimed at helping America’s imperiled species.

To date, the Endangered Species Act, which became law in 1973, has helped to prevent the extinction of hundreds of species. Co-administered by the Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the purpose of the Act is to conserve imperiled species and the ecosystems upon which they depend.

Climate Solutions 2011 Breakfast

 

Yesterday morning I had the unique opportunity to attend the Climate Solutions 2011 breakfast, featuring a conversation with Bill Gates.

I was sitting at the “Mellem/Macfarlane” table—coined the Vanity Fair table by Dennis Hayes of The Bullitt Foundation —with Tom Skerritt, Bill Gates, Sr., and SF Giants owner Bill Neukom. Other attendees were Dr. Leroy Hood, Science Educator Valerie Logan, Bryan Weeks, Jim McCurdy, Greg Landis, Roger Mellem, and Ross Macfarlane.

The search for clean energy and solutions to climate change is more critical than ever and innovation in this area must not be crippled by bipartisanship.
