Glacier Retreat

By Léa Brassy   |   Jan 18, 2018 January 18, 2018

Experiencing places myself is the ultimate chance for imprinting the reality of them in my mind. Living for a year on a remote atoll in the Pacific allowed me to witness the seawater level rising and its consequences. Yet picturing what’s happening far across the world remains abstract for me.

From Ríos to Rivers: Two Worlds United for the People of the River!

By Juanita Ringeling Vicuña   |   Dec 18, 2017 December 18, 2017

At first glimpse, the Klamath River in the United States’ Pacific Northwest and the Río Baker in Chilean Patagonia, South America, seem to have nothing in common.

On the best days—on any day, in fact—the view from the Mirador is about as beautiful as one could ever imagine. Past the stands of cactus in the foreground, you look out to the castle-like ramparts of the Morros, the swirling congregations of seabirds, and the long lines of swell… Read More

Atlantic Salmon Net Pens Don’t Belong in Puget Sound

By Kurt Beardslee   |   Nov 2, 2017 November 2, 2017

Amidst all of the commotion, the subtle shift would have been easy to miss. Behind me in the waters off the coast of Washington’s Bainbridge Island, an armada of activists were blaring air horns and chanting, “Protect Our Sound!” This flotilla of commercial fishing vessels, recreational boats, kayaks, canoes, SUPs… Read More
