"My connection to the environment is something very emotional; it comes from the heart for me especially now that I have become a dad."
Last Friday morning, Florian Schulz, wildlife photographer and passionate conservationist, spoke at The Conservation Alliance Breakfast in Salt Lake City, Utah. Staying true to the Breakfast's moto, Arrive Tired, Leave Inspired, Florian moved us all with his words and his images.
"I hope we can keep this planet the way it is for a while longer…. Fighting for this is essential."
It's that time again! Outdoor Retailer is just days away, so make sure to mark you calendars for some great Conservation Alliance events and promotions!
We're excited to welcome photographer Florian Schulz as he transports us To the Arctic through breathtaking photos, and grab your hockey stick, we're revving up for the best ever Canadian Cup for the Conservation Alliance and don't miss The North Face happy hour with special guests Conrad Anker and Jimmy Chin… and as always, bring some extra cash to pick up some sweet swag for your friends back home and yourself — and support the Alliance to boot!
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced yesterday a 20-year moratorium on new uranium mining on 1.1 million acres surrounding the Grand Canyon. The Conservation Alliance funded Grand Canyon Trust for their campaign to win this moratorium. Congratulations to Grand Canyon Trust and all of the organizations that worked so hard to preserve the integrity of one of our most special National Parks!
