Please watch this very important video about the biggest threat to the pacific coast in our lifetime. Don’t let what happened in the Gulf happen to us. It is a 45 minute video, but please don’t let that stop you. Make the time in your day. Just start watching it.

It is a beautiful piece of film put together by the International League of Conservation Photographers and contains some of the most outstanding images I have ever seen (and my standards are high) by some of the best photographers in the world.
