During 2011 and 2012 I was honored to work for Grand Canyon National Park in the active conservation of the endangered humpback chub (Gila cypha)
in the Little Colorado River a few miles upstream from the confluence. The largest remaining population of humpback chub lives near the confluence of the Little Colorado and Colorado Rivers.
The confluence is an extremely important cultural and ecological area and it is in danger of being jeopardized by the proposed Escalade Project.
There are many stunning images of the confluence from above, but I wish to share these images of the floor of the canyon to give the viewer an intimate perspective of the area in danger of being changed forever. Please share widely to raise awareness and protect this one-of-a-kind cultural and ecological treasure.
