An interesting blog that examines the science of flow – how energy travels through natural systems, the patterns it produces on its way

A really great video on how a few wolves restored both an ecosystem and its geography.

Ice bridge to Isle Royale is complete, will new wolves cross it? Will more wolves join the depleted population on the island?

Another article covering the scientific debate about whether or not to introduce more wolves to Isle Royale.

Cooperate with the pack

Play when you can

Hunt when you must

Rest in between

MIDWAY, a Message from the Gyre is a powerful visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Returning to the island over several years, our team is witnessing the cycles of life and death of these birds as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. With photographer Chris Jordan as our guide, we walk through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy—and our own complicity—head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a transformational experience of beauty, acceptance, and understanding.

I get so tired of these senseless killings by man who think they are experts on Nature. There were plenty of other alternatives !!!

Here is another post on the same subject.

My name is Bill Graham. As a Marine Biologist who has worked in the US and Mexico for 30 years, I am a student of Nature, a teacher, a researcher, and a nature photographer. Through my work, I have acquired an ever growing passion for how everything in Nature is connected. Today, I travel extensively contemplating about, writing about, and photographing Nature’s connections. I also work with conservation projects in the USA and Mexico and mentor talented youth.

  1. Bill,

    This is the stuff for which I subscribed to your newsletter. The science of flow article is just what I wanted. I wonder if you are at all familiar with the work of Viktor Schauberger?

    Thanks, Daphne

    1. Thanks for your comment Daphne. You are the first to respond about flow. I did look at Viktor Schauberger’s work and found his biomimicry work very interesting. I just gave a webinar on energy flow sponsored by a biomimidry group. See: . I am currently writing a book on the subject. If you are interested, I can send you a review copy when I’m finished in 1-2 months. My premise is that energy is the operating currency of Nature. By way of the constructal law (Adrian Bejan), energy creates Nature’s ecosystems and it then uses those ecosystems to transport and transform Nature’s energy. I am currently doing a series of blogs on the subject every other week.
