Over the past four months, I have been working on a conservation project that aims to raise awareness of the Sacred Headwaters. I'm pleased to announce the launch of a new website dedicated to this goal:
This is an ongoing project - new images and events will be posted on the project website.
The Sacred Headwaters is a remote mountainous region in northern British Columbia where three of BC's greatest salmon-bearing rivers are formed. The Stikine, Skeena and Nass Rivers all start in close proximity within this basin. It is also home to one of the largest predator-prey ecosystems in North America, earning it the nickname, "Serengeti of the North." The land has been the traditional territory of the Tahltan Nation for thousands of years.
The Sacred Headwaters is now at the center of disputes between the Tahltan, government, mineral and energy industries and environmental organizations, placing the future of the this incredible land at risk.
