Moments from Canada

Your photos are stunning, but your photo with you standing next to Bow Lake among plants is an example of a major threat to these beautiful place — people going off trail and trampling vegetation in order to get the “cool shot” no one else got. I’ve worked in National Parks, and the number of crushed social trails people made to get a cool selfie is insane. Either you or your photographer aren’t on a trail in that shot, and if you really want to talk about protecting these places, you should be a good example of enjoying them while minimizing your impact.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
