sitka_ Just as the little floaters had more or less disappeared, an ice berg floated into the research area, and hung up on the far shore from the camp. // An excerpt from @bakkenaction's photo essay on the Canadian Arctic.

sitka_ "Most of the Arctic landscape is freckled with lakes. Their deep blues and greens contrasted beautifully with the melting ice, and reminded me of the earth’s colours from space." A photo/excerpt from 'The Canadian Arctic' - a photo essay from our friend @bakkenaction, which is now live on the Sitka Almanac (sitka.ca/blog). #LovetheWild #WildernessActivism 1w

sitka_ @pacificwild regram "Herring Dispatch: We have succumbed to herrings most elaborate and elegant device - their ability to shock, awe and overwhelm their predators by sheer abundance, grace and coordination. The moon is now waning and the herring have only a few days left to spawn. The Great Bear is in its glory - exemplified by so many life forms that converge to feast.

The crew on board s/v Habitat continue to delve deeper into the world of herring. Today, @tavishcampbell is working the outside swell, filming through the surge of tannin etched bubbles as tons of herring move through the eel grass and storm weathered kelp. @aprilbencze with her closed-circuit rebreather system allows her to move through the ocean without dispelling noisy bubbles - the nemesis of an underwater videographer. She lies on the bottom of a nearby bay wrapped in eelgrass, patiently waiting for the three thousand surf scoters overhead to begin diving for eggs. Damien spent time with the Housty family documenting the SOK fishery - this family is part of a nation that has ten thousand years of history harvesting herring eggs from these same waters. @iantmcallister captured this image of herring and their eggs covering the bottom this morning moments before the ocean turned to zero visibility from the spawn." #LovetheWild #WildernessActivism

sitka_ @pacificwild regram - Emotions run high today as Latoya Windsor pleads with DFO to stop the commercial herring gillnet fishery. "We all rely on the water, we all rely on our Heiltsuk territory. I am saying what my dad is saying. I am saying no more. Please stop this." During a protest today at DFO headquarters: Heiltsuk inform DFO that they will be evicted from Heiltsuk territory if herring fishery is opened in Area 7. Tension mounts as DFO gets ready to announce gillnet fishery. Visit facebook.com/pacificwild to learn more - sign the petition and write a letter in support of conservation of herring. @aprilbencze photo #WildernessActivism #LovetheWild 3w
