A film by Orvis, Captains for Clean Waters, Trout Unlimited, the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and others looks at two major conservation crises of our time.
This half-hour film shows the breadth, beauty and crises in two different, but equally impressive landscapes.
A fishing guide named John Landry sits at the head of the film. Dividing his time between Florida and Alaska, Landry sees firsthand the elegance and troubles that both the Everglades and Bristol Bay face.
The decimation of the Everglades can possibly be corrected by simply redistributing water. Bristol Bay, on the other hand, is not yet being decimated, but it is under threat from that often discussed Pebble Mine, an open pit gold and copper mine that the Trump administration has not yet finally closed.
Shedding light on both subjects in one film is a bit difficult, but it works. The idea that “everyone in between” should stand up for them in these places should be heard. And the brands and nonprofits suggest that you take action the Everglades here and for Bristol Bay here.
