I went to school for a year [2010-2011] for Conservation Enforcement and the stuff like this was [and still is] the most awe inspiring part. I
completed Zoology, Plant Taxonomy, Map and Aerial Photography, Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecology and many others. Tying all the respective fields into
one practice, and seeing the implications of the tiniest things, was so inspiring. I spent hundreds of hours out in the coulées seeing this stuff in
action and in person. Haha, one day I was meant to survey the coulée it was so cold that my GPS just stopped working altogether. Must've been -40 or
so. I was out there sun or snow.
After I was done my studies I had to tell everyone about it. The funniest thing was, a lot of people thought that I was spouting weird new age/wicca
mumbo jumbo. They didn't know how immensely complex and interconnected nature really is, and they thought I was a bit loony. I'd tell them the
hypothetical story of a bird on a north slope as an invasive species spreads, and explain it as epically and poetically as possible. People told me it
sounded like Hippy, First Nation, New Age babble... but it's true. What many people have been saying for centuries is true. But the white man didn't
listen. Little did any of them know that all it takes to move a mountain, is to clear cut it.
Great video! I recommend everyone to learn a bit about this. Gives you a much greater respect and understanding of nature.
