  • One of my favorite new friends @onelargebanana is a Fish and Game Bio and stands on this tower counting the sockeye that cross the plexiglass below so the managers can determine how many sockeye have “escaped” up river. She has unbridled enthusiasm and spirit and it was such a fun experience to climb that ladder and see the fish moving below. Thanks for the smiles Hannah, you’re solid gold! .

  • @shawnheinrichs gave us permission to repost his video. 
Every year thousands of visitors travel to Alaska during the peak summer season for the experience of a lifetime: the opportunity to watch bears fish in the water as clear as glass, right from the water's edge. Bear-viewing and all related service providers (air/boat taxis, guides, lodging) reported $34.5 million in sales. Pebble Mine would change all of this. Forever. Mine construction will alter the ways that these bear move through wild Alaska and their relationships with humans. But there's still something you can do to try and change the future for these bears. Join us and all of the people in Alaska already standing up to #SaveBristolBay. Make sure your voice is heard - tell US Congress to stop Pebble Mine now before it is too late.

  • At slack tide the little boats start to stir. Crews grumble out of their bunks, sleep still threatening to take over. For some it’s a cigarette, for most it’s black coffee, but for all it’s time to fish again.
.
They pull their anchor and roar their engines awake. Rain pants, rain jacket, gloves and @xtratuf boots dried out from the previous tide, are looking a little worse for wear by this point in the season. A handful of faces sharing the same fate. Sleep is broken in this industry.
.
By mid July, the stoke of the season starts to fade and the awareness of home and family become visible in the peripheral. But those fish won’t catch themselves and there are still millions of them up for grabs.
.
As the tide shifts from slack to flood, the water moves from calm to swift to raging. Carrying the fish with it at a faster pace. The little boats challenge each other for prime position on the invisible line. Cross over that line and you’re in trooper territory where heavy handed tickets can break a season.
.
When the clock strikes to “open” the skippers yell and the crews on deck race to release their net; 150-200 fathoms long.
.
Nothing else matters in these moments. The adrenaline takes over and sleep is nothing but a distant past and home a distant future. It’s a derby out here with money in the line.

"If the salmon system collapses here, it will affect this entire ecosystem, from the bears and eagles to the tribes and businesses that depend on its health." - @PaulNicklen, SeaLegacy Co-Founder. 
Over 60 million fish travel upriver through Bristol Bay each year in the last wild salmon stronghold in the world. If mining were introduced to the region, it would cause irreversible damage to the region's ecology and economy. Its time to set the right kind of precedent and take bold action. It is time to put people and sustainability first. Join us and all of the people in Alaska already standing up to #SaveBristolBay.

  • Reposted from @sealegacy (@get_regrann) -  Photo by @suzieszterhas // Before I went to the coast of Katmai, I had no idea that coastal brown bears ate clams. I just knew them as salmon eaters. But they also graze on grass like bison, delicately browse berries, and manage to crack open as many as 100 clams a day. It's incredible to watch the bears dig up the clams up from deep in the sand, and then somehow manage to get the shell open with their massive paws and extract the clam with their razor sharp claws. For young cubs like this guy, it will take quite some time to perfect this skill. But even at the age of four months cubs start trying. They wind up doing a lot more playing than eating.

  • Mornings in my spot in the captains day bunk. Sipping my hot coffee, eating trail mix, listening to Michelle Obama’s, “Becoming” feeling inspired by her words, happy, looking for jumpers (fish) with Eddie.💙🌊🐟🙏🏼 @the_wild_fish_

  • A few snuggle bears to hedge the Monday blues.  And some really good news if you read through to the end!
.
Photographing these bears was one of the easier experiences of my trip to Brook’s Camp.  We simply stood on a safe, lovely, brand new observation deck and clicked away!  The bears mostly ignore humans, but if I didn’t know better, these little ones were actually posing.
.
I overheard someone say, “this place is like Jurassic Park for bears.” During certain times of the year, Brook’s Camp really is a marvel…one of the densest environments of bears, all here for one thing.  Salmon!
.
Bristol Bay, which is right above that long pointy peninsula that nearly curls up as if trying to touch Russia, features the world’s greatest Sockeye Salmon run.  Nearly forty (omg…40!) million salmon leave the ocean in an effort to spawn and return to the freshwater where they were born.  The eco system around this event is spectacular, including for us humans!  Think about this…
.
162 million lbs = Entire world Sockeye Salmon Harvest (including other parts of Alaska)
.
219 million lbs = Just Bristol Bay Salmon Harvest
.
This really is a special area that needs to be guarded for our own sake, for the jobs around the fishing industry, for the  wild salmon, as well as the bears and the ecosystem.
.
And yet, queue the dramatic music….Pebble Mine threatens it all.  This mine had come back from the dead, like a hand clawing up from its grave in a horror film, just when you thought the villain was dead.  Denied approval under the last administration, it seemed suddenly to be on a fast track with the US Army Corps of Engineers.
.
BUT…. miraculously, after a period for public comment last month, during which time the EPA reviewed the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) provided by the Army Corps, they came back on July 1st with formal comments critical of the mine.
.
Woot, woot!  It’s not over but let’s celebrate!…a little. :) It’s important to honor the wins. ‼️🎉🎊💃🥂
