2018 was a whirlwind. Meetings. Pitches. Travel. Learning to do audio on YouTube. Turning our apartment into a wall-to-wall Post-it note storyboard. You see, we’re trying to create the first prototype of Nature Labs by fall 2019 and, as a result, we had fewer days in the field than ever before. Yet 2018 was good to us. We made our time in the Rocky Mountains count like never before, narrowing our search to specific individuals and landscapes we’ve come to know well while working to create the stories that will underpin Nature Labs.
In order of date, please enjoy a behind the scenes look at the making of Nature Labs and what became our top wildlife encounters from 2018.
There’s something extremely special about being able to observe wildlife when they are totally at peace and relaxed enough to sleep in your presence. We were fortunate to observe sleeping grizzlies and black bears several times this spring and document their state of peace.
The black bear sow was taking a long nap while her cubs of the year played in a tree. The grizzly? He took a well needed nap after chasing the scent of a sow grizzly bear for two days. Lucky for him, they met up later on that day for a little romantic time. Here’s hoping for a few new grizzly cubs next spring!
Help us create a world where we all strive to create a better balance between the needs of people and nature.
Whether it’s $50 or $500, every dollar counts.
