- What does gorilla conservation have in common with the provision of contraceptives to women? How does rural-urban migration contribute to global warming? What does city planning in Kenya have to do with coastal erosion in the Philippines?
Such are the topics of conversation at the 23rd annual conference of the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ), running from Oct. 2-6 in what was, until 1960, referred to as “the dirtiest city in America”: Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Besides exploring an urban centre that has made the impressive about-turn from a highly polluted landscape into a model of sustainability, the nearly 300 journalists convened here are looking past their many differences to answer some fundamental questions about the profession.

High in the mountains of Eastern Uganda, I'm standing a few steps from a magnificent silverback gorilla, who grabs a thick vine with both hands and uses his massive strength to yank it down from the trees. A cascade of foliage falls around him and he begins -- one by one -- to eat the vine's leaves. Spend a few days photographing mountain gorillas and you quickly learn that it takes a lot of greenery to fuel a 400-pound vegetarian.
