Here we have six photos. These photos were posted for a combined 375,000 followers to see. All the “Influencers” in these photos appear to be trampling wild flowers. None of them said anything about proper wildflower behavior in their original posts. These photos shout “it’s ok to go off trail and kill wildflowers for cool pics” to 375,000 people. Imagine the impact of just 1% of those people following in these “Influencers” footsteps. . . . 1% is 3,500 people wandering through the flowers, creating new trails, hindering the ability of the next generation of wild flowers from creating this beauty for the rest of us next year. These people should be using their influence for the greater good. Not this. . . . All of these “Influencers” have been informed that what they are doing is wrong. And yet, here are these pictures. Still up. Gathering likes. And suggesting that this kind of behavior is ok. I think I’m going to be sick. Share this with everyone you know who loves our public lands. We can make a difference together. . . . #forprofit #profitfirst #publiclandshateyou #protectourplaces #deathby1000cuts #disrespect #selfish #ignorance #peoplesuck #illegal  #publiclands #superbloom #superbloom2019 #poppy #poppyfield #ourpubliclands #protectyourpubliclands #seesomethingsaysomething #wildflowers #wildflower #trampled #flowers #highimpact #leavenotrace

Es el momento de estar hartos y expresarlo a los cuatro vientos. Aunque el espectro de la hartura es muy amplio en estos días, vamos a centrarnos en uno en concreto: las imágenes que vemos en redes sociales, por ejemplo, en Instagram. Visualiza: el/la influencer de turno intentando venderte una crema o sucedáneos, espatarrado/a en un campo, mientras pone su mejor sonrisa, sin arrugas eso sí. Y tú, desde el otro lado de la influencia, piensas: WTF. Pero te pilla lejos, no puedes hacer nada para evitar que esa imagen se ponga ante ti más que darle al botón de unfollow y esperar a que no lleve publicidad, en cuyo caso la foto se las ingeniará para colarse en tu feed. Pero, a parte de lo molesto que resulta que intenten venderte algo a primera hora de la mañana, ¿habéis pensado en el impacto medioambiental que supone la realización de alguna de estas fotos? De esa indignación nace la cuenta @PublicLandsHateYou, una maravilla de profile en la que se habla alto y claro sobre algunos personajes de red social e incluso compañías y marcas que deciden ubicar sus fotos de #OOTD o #Wanderlust en zonas protegidas. Uno de los spots con más protagonismo dentro del profile es el anual bloom del Walker Canyon, un acontecimiento natural que tiñe de naranja las laderas de este spot en California, y que atrae cada año a miles de instagramers deseando hacerse la foto y así multiplicar el impacto de esta amenaza. Y más cuando es fácil poder disfrutar de este espectáculo natural, pero con responsabilidad: hay caminos marcados para poder pasear por la zona, pero claro, el meterse dentro y hacerse el American Beauty rodeado de flores, te garantiza muchos más likes…y un mayor daño al ecosistema.

El tono de la cuenta es totalmente reivindicativo, y ha visto como algunos de sus posts más incendiarios en los que apunta a ciertas cuentas por recurrir a este recurso, se han visto eliminados por el propio Instagram, dado que eran posts patrocinados. Pero también hay esperanzas: hay algunos influencers que al verse taggeados por la cuenta, han decidido eliminar fotos en las que comenten ese tipo de infracciones, y así, disculparse y no expandir más esa moda. Qué debería de importar más, ¿la salud de la Madre Naturaleza o el bolsillo del instagramer de turno? Juzguen por ustedes mismos y únanse a la causa (aunque sea via Instagram). (Via S Moda)

The good news? “Influencers” with a total of 250,000+ followers have decided to remove pictures of them trampling the poppies! Some have even decided to be proactive and provide education to their followers about proper behavior in the wildflower fields. Much of this is due to YOUR help. Thank you! . . . The bad news is that people like those featured in this post are still ruining wildflower habitat while hawking phone cases and dresses. I don’t know about you, but I’m letting their sponsors know how I feel. . . . Going off the official trail, even by a foot, compacts the soils which these plants require to grow. Next year, the trail becomes one foot wider due to this compaction. If this continues to happen year after year, the only way you’ll be able to see these flowers is from behind a chain link fence. That’s not what anyone wants. . . . . #forprofit #profitfirst #publiclandshateyou #protectourplaces #deathby1000cuts #disrespect #selfish #ignorance #peoplesuck #illegal  #publiclands #superbloom #superbloom2019 #poppy #poppyfield #ourpubliclands #protectyourpubliclands #seesomethingsaysomething #wildflowers #wildflower #trampled #flowers #highimpact #leavenotrace

PEOPLE, DON’T FEED THE WILDLIFE. Not only is it illegal, but you are putting yourself and others in danger of getting bitten. You are habituating these animals to human food which endangers the life of the animal and really pisses off the next people who have to deal with an animal that is used to eating clif bars, peanuts, and m&m’s and will chew through backpacks to get them. I’m so tired of seeing this behavior in our parks. There are multiple signs saying not to feed wildlife at trailheads, yet some people still think this is cute. If you see someone doing this, SPEAK UP and tell them it’s not cool. If you’re not comfortable speaking up, tell the nearest park ranger who would be more than happy to issue a fine to people like this. #publiclandshateyou #protectourplaces #feedingthewildlife #fat #squirel #disrespect #ignorance #criminal #ruined #peoplesuck #illegal #nationalpark #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #arizona #publiclands #yourpubliclands #ourpubliclands #protectyourpubliclands #morons #notcute #bitten #wildlife #wild #seesomethingsaysomething #feedingthewildlife

Is this what you want your recently tagged spot to look like? No? Me either. Do your part. Tread lightly, share smarter. Don’t tag specific locations. People need to earn the right to visit the worlds beautiful places. Don’t make it easy for vandals to find our sacred spots. Tag a friend who appreciates nature without numbskulls who do things like this. Graffiti at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. #iguntagged #protectourplaces #graffiti #defaced #vandals #disrespect #spraypaint #untagged #thanksfornotsharing #naturewithoutnumbskulls #crime #criminal #ruined #peoplesuck #bad #illegal #nationalpark #publiclands #yourpubliclands #protectyourpubliclands #itonlytakesone #heretodaygonetomorrow #morons #vandalism

Many people were, and still are, upset that I called out a couple of individual accounts for going off-trail and taking pictures in the wildflower fields. Some people don’t seem to understand the impact that one person can have. . This photo from @thesimplehiker is the manifestation of that impact. One person chooses to disregard the rules, goes 10′ off the trail and tramples a few flowers.  The next person sees  that minor impact, thinks it’s ok because someone else did it, but they go 20′ to get that perfect shot. Before long, you’ve got 7 people wandering around in a previously untracked wildflower field, beating down a new trail that others are sure to follow, signage be damned. . The physical impact of breaking the rules here is obvious.  A new trail through a previously virgin field. How about the impact of the pictures that these people take, as seen in the second picture? In addition to their physical footprints, these people are leaving a digital footprint that suggests to their followers that it’s ok to go off trail.  That it’s ok to pick wildflowers.  That it’s ok to ignore posted signs for a cool Instagram picture. . So did I make too big a deal about one picture? Maybe.  But the cumulative impact of everyone breaking the rules, even in small ways, WILL have a visible, and likely permanent, impact on the environment, especially if tourism accounts like @visitpalmdesert are going to be jumping on the bandwagon. . #publiclandshateyou #protectourplaces #deathby1000cuts #disrespect #selfish #ignorance #peoplesuck #illegal  #publiclands #superbloom #superbloom2019 #poppy #poppyfield #ourpubliclands #protectyourpubliclands #seesomethingsaysomething #wildflowers #wildflower #trampled #flowers #illegalbehaviour #forprofit #profitfirst #highimpact #leavenotrace #wildernessethics #wildflowersociety
