Wolverine. How incredibly smart!!! Here a wolverine is breaking through a trapdoor and stealing the bait used by @thelynxproject as part of a long term study of Lynx movement in interior Alaska. One of my favorite parts about my job is the long term collaborations that result as a part of it. It’s been fun to work with these guys trying to educate the public about what they do and the species in general and see cool things like this as well as be on the cutting edge of how science is using tools like social media to further their endeavors. Can’t wait to get out in the field with them again soon. If you want to learn more about Lynx make sure to check them out. Tag a friend you think should see this. 😂

We spent last year doing our homework, learning movements and looking for patterns. Critical information in order for us to learn more about these animals and share it with all of you. With @yukoncharleywolves 🙌

Excited to be headed back to Alaska with @yukoncharleywolves to document the lives of these wolves. I’ll be in the field for 3 weeks using remote cameras to try and offer a glimpse into their lives. I can’t wait. You can get a glimpse of what it’s like pcking for an expedition like this by tuning into insta stories. 🙌 _________________________________________________#nature #wildlife #wolves #alaska #instanature

Had no idea where I was going when the trail petered out on the open rock. Luckily, the toilet paper trail marked the way, like small white flags gently waving in the breeze as the glow from my headlamp mixed with the moonlight. •••We can doo better.••• 💩 #seriously #expectationvsreality #doobetter

The Moqui Family formation at Dugout Ranch. Utah. with @nature_org. Operating as a cattle ranch and research station it’s a great example of people working together to try and leave it better than we found it. 🙌 thanks to @leonardodicaprio for throwing this up on his feed the other day. ✌️

Owachomo Bridge - Natural Bridges National Monument. The stars wouldn’t last long. Clouds rolled in and the winds that had been blowing all week across the desert returned. With @nature_org 🌬✨

Standing under Sipapu Bridge in Natural Bridges National Monument is all it takes to feel humbled by scenes nature gives us. I hiked down in the dark, no idea where I was going or where it would end up but I just remember all of the sudden standing underneath this massive natural bridge. I’d spend the next two nights trying to get shots of the Bridges and the #milkyway. On assignment with @nature_org. #wonder

Every family that we met on this trip seemed to talk about tradition. Wanting to get outside with their families and establish a tradition of getting out and enjoying nature with their kids hoping that they’ll want to do the same with theirs. I suppose I didn’t even realize it but that’s exactly what I was trying to do too. Trying to lay a foundation for a life spent seeking the excitement of the outdoors. What are your family traditions that involve the outdoors? How has it helped you and your family? I’d love to hear. With @nature_org celebrating public lands and family traditions in #Utah.#commonground
