The longest migration on Earth

The longest migration on Earth

Marty’s photo of the day #2594: This is a tiny segment of the Porcupine caribou migration. These caribou migrate between Canada and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Their 800 mile-long migration is the longest of any land animal on Earth. Now that the Republican cult and Rut Leader Trump have opened up the […]

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Marty’s photo of the day #2401: I took this photo in the Yukon Territory. This is a small section of the Porcupine caribou migration. Traveling more than 700 miles between Canada and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, in Alaska, it is the longest terrestrial migration on Earth. Of course now that the sinister Republican tax […]

The Porcupine Caribou Migration

Marty’s photo of the day #2059: In my college show, “Around the World in 90 Minutes,” I talk about greedy oil companies and politicians who lobby to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by claiming that the Arctic is just a “bunch of nothing.” Then I show a series of photos that demonstrates just […]

Barren-Ground Caribou

Marty’s photo of the day #1731: It’s Photos of Endangered Edens Week. In the past I’ve avoided posting photos from my books, and instead featured photos that didn’t quite make it.

These caribou go on the longest migration of any land animal on Earth. They start in Canada and work their way northwest to […]

Coo loo coo coo, coo coo coo coo!

Coo loo coo coo, coo coo coo coo!

Marty’s photo of the day #1588: Canada is back! Eh? In honor of Canada overwhelmingly rejecting their nine-year experiment with conservatism and electing Justin Trudeau of the Liberal Party to be their next Prime Minister, I thought a Canada photo would be appropriate. Besides, Stephen Harper was such a hoser! Okay this is the Porcupine […]

Caribou

Caribou

Marty’s photo of the day #1551: It’s “Didn’t Make the Cut Week,” featuring photos that I carefully considered for my new book, Endangered Edens (now available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble), but decided to leave out. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge was stunning, and the caribou were unforgettable. Except for this one […]

The longest land migration in action

The longest land migration in action

Marty’s photo of the day #1521: You are looking at more than just a pretty landscape. If you look closely, you will see what appears to be a long string of dots. Those are members of the Porcupine caribou herd. This herd partakes in the longest migration of any land animal on earth: 700+ miles. […]
