The Conservation Alliance Breakfast at the January 2009 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market will feature guest speaker Steven Kazlowski, a wildlife photographer who has accumulated a comprehensive and unparalleled portfolio of polar bears in the wild. His work documents the impact global warming is having on polar bear habitat. Before Kazlowski's talk, The Conservation Alliance will provide an update on recent progress to protect three million acres of public land and 1000 miles of rivers throughout the US.

The breakfast, which is open to the public, is Friday, January 23, 7:00-9:00 AM at The Marriott in Salt Lake City.

“Our breakfast will be exciting both because of Steve Kazlowski's incredible photographs and stories, and for the great news that many of the projects we have supported are coming to fruition,” said John Sterling, Conservation Alliance Executive Director.

During his presentation, Kazlowski will share his stunning images and observations, talk about the challenges and thrill of photographing in the Arctic, and discuss what every citizen can do to make a difference for polar bear habitat in light of global warming.

“The Polar bear is global warming's canary in the coal mine,” said Sterling. “We're fortunate that Steven Kazlowski has taken the time to document these special animals in the wild, and that he will share his work with us.”

On the conservation front, legislation passed the US Senate on today that will protect new Wilderness areas and Wild and Scenic Rivers in Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Arizona, Virginia, and West Virginia. Many Conservation Alliance grantees played an important role in this historic initiative.


The Conservation Alliance Breakfast is open to the public. For complete information, see http://conservationalliance.com/articles.
