Photo by: @renaeffendiphoto // Five years ago this month I traveled across Gujarat state in the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi's iconic Salt March from Ahmedabad to Dandi photographing the modern day landscape and people in my attempt to trace history. A farmer carries twigs she collected from a field in Samni village in Gujarat along the Salt March route. #india #gujarat #gandhi #resistance #campaign #struggle
Photo by @CarltonWard // I was exploring the Rainbow River with fellow conservation photographer Mac Stone when this cormorant let us swim up within a foot of its perch on a submerged palm. We had been watching him forage beneath the surface further downstream when I noticed that he was returning back upstream toward his favorite log. I was exhausted from swimming against the stiff current when I caught up and struggled to tread water holding my dome port at the water line. For an instant, the cormorant turned in my direction and spread his wings. Thankfully the focus and flash settings were ready to capture the moment. Then I relaxed and let the current swept me back downstream. The cormorant dried his wings a bit longer and then slid back into the water to chase more fish. We visited the Rainbow River during the #FloridaWildlifeCorridor #Glades2Gulf Expedition, which emphasized the importance of protecting a connected network of land and water throughout Florida. #FloridaWild #KeepFLWild @FL_WildCorridor #river #spring
Photo by @brentstirton | Today we say goodbye to Sudan, the last remaining male Northern White Rhino. He died of age related complications at Ol Pejeta in Kenya, after being cared for by devoted rangers who guarded him 24 hours a day. I was mesmerized to see the relationship between Sudan and his caregivers. It showed me that once again there is so much that remains unexplored in terms of communication and understanding between man and animals. I had no idea that this kind of relationship was possible until I saw it for myself. There are 2 remaining female Northern White Rhino at Ol Pejeta, who do a fantastic job of caring for these last remaining Northern White Rhino.

These mushrooms are foraged in the wild by professional mushroom hunters on public and private lands from central California, to the Oregon coast. Connie Green, owner of Wine Forest Wild Foods @conniegreenwineforest has been a fixture in the wild food foraging business in Northern California for 38 years. I spend this day with Connie, on the hunt through one of her secret mushroom hideaways deep in a remote rainforest of Mendocino County and developed a new appreciation for the hard-working adventurers that make a living from the forest floor. - Feeding the world in the future depends on people working together.

Video by @jenniferhayesig (Jennifer Hayes) // sponsored by @landolakesinc | Dot Dot, a Holstein cow, finishes a milking session on a robotic dairy in Northern New York. I grew up on a family-owned dairy farm facing rising operating costs, unpredictable milk prices, and labor issues. A neighboring farm looked at technological solutions using robots to reduce labor and increase the comfort of the herd. Each cow decides when she wants to be milked and enters a robotic milking station of her choice wearing a transponder. This allows a computer to ID her name and displays everything about her milk production, health, activity (in steps per day) and comfort (measured by cud chewing). She eats her grain while she is washed and milked and then she exits to wander about, feed on a balanced diet of silage, haylage and soybeans and rest on a water-filled mattress. Minimum human interaction leaves much of the decision-making to the cow, creating a less stressful environment. The welcome result is a contented herd, increased milk production and preservation of a family farm for the next generation. - Feeding the world in the future depends on people working together.

Photo by @feedtheplanet (George Steinmetz) // sponsored by @landolakesinc | A side view of lettuce flourishing with aeroponics, a new development in indoor vertical farming. The roots of the plants are bathed with a nutrient-rich mist as they dangle below their growing cloth medium. I took this photo at AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey, where they optimize results by varying computer-controlled temperature, nutrition and 95% less water. - Feeding the world in the future depends on people working together.
