See It, Share It, Save It

When was the last time you found yourself alone, in a wild place void of any human element?

How often do you stalk an animal with the only purpose being to really see that animal in its true habitat? Think about that one for a moment, and then take a look at the images captured by the Hunter-Gatherer Photo Tribe.

This group of adventurous photographers seeks out remote places and solitude in nature to gather untamed images of wildlife and our environment without the presence of any human element. They are guided by three basic principles: “See it, share it, save it.”

After scrolling through some of these images, I thought of a quote from John Muir: “In God’s wildness lies the hope of the world—the great fresh unblighted, unredeemed wilderness. The galling harness of civilization drops off, and wounds heal ere we are aware.”

So, take a tip from Mr. Muir and the Hunter-Gatherer Photo Tribe. Take some time today (and everyday!) to spend some time in nature, stalk a bird, a frog, hell even a beetle in your own backyard and see how those guys live on this planet. Then show and tell your friends, your neighbors, your social networks what you saw. And then stand up and protect our wild places — protect your own wildness.
