This short-finned pilot whale (Globicephala macrorhynchus), named Ava, came to find her home at SeaWorld after being rescued from a mass stranding of pilot whales in Florida in 2012 when she was roughly 6 months old. Due to her very young age at the time of the rescue, government experts did not believe she would survive if returned to the wild, and they therefore asked SeaWorld to give her a home. Ava is now estimated to be roughly 4 years old and weighs 1,200 lbs.

Hungry Horse Dam, one of the biggest dams that blocks bull trout movements in Northern Montana. Note that biologists say this dam actually prevents non-native fish from moving upstream here, which today is a good thing. No fish ladder or passages were incorporated into this or any other dam in this region at the time they were built.

Aerial of the marshlands that have literally been cut to pieces by pipeline canals and shipping channels that have been put in by the oil industry over the years. Such huge canals have allowed saltwater to intrude, killing off the marsh and eliminating its resistance to catastrophic events in the Gulf such as storms, and now, oil spills like the Deepwater Horizon.
