5/6 Instagram takeover by @matherpeter. The Gwichin First Nation people of Alaska and the Yukon are caribou people. They have depended on caribou for their physical and cultural sustenance for thousands of years. The calving and nursing grounds of the Porcupine caribou herd in Alaska's Arctic Refuge is sacred land. The efforts to open up the Refuge for oil and gas development has already begun and with Republicans controlling all three levels of government it will be difficult, but not impossible, to stop them. It will require a serious filibuster in the Senate. We will soon find out if we have the numbers for that! #wearethearctic #gwichinsteeringcommittee #gwichin #arcticrefuge

Come out June 1st for our next event! We'll be screening The Refuge and talking about the issues involved in protecting the #arcticrefuge.

1st AC. #arcticrefuge

On this #givingtuesday I donated to @keepalaskawild because I'm thankful for the work they do to #protectthearcticrefuge //Watch their thank you video in my profile and join us, and the Obama Administration, in advocating for Wilderness designation across the #ArcticRefuge 📷 cred @acekvale

Bull caribou on the coastal plain of Alaska's Arctic Refuge. The refuge is threatened by oil and gas development. @ilcp_photographers @natgeocreative #wearethearcticrefuge #arcticrefuge #caribou #calvingrounds

Towards the end of our trip, a little rain came to the coastal plain, along with warmer temperatures. This led to numerous flowers blooming, and the tundra really waking up from winter. [6/8] -@andymoderow #publiclands #alaskalife #midnightsun #alaska #arcticrefuge

Repost @matherpeter :

A newly born caribou calf has her first 'out of the womb' interaction with her mom. They must immediately create a strong bond, because they will shortly be migrating again within groups of tens of thousands of caribou where they can easily be separated. These calving grounds are a sacred land to the Gwichin. The caribou were left alone and not hunted during this time of calving. #wildernesssociety #arcticrefuge

THIS IS NOT GROSS!!This is an amazing shot and needs sharing. .....@Regrann from @matherpeter - Right now on the coastal plain of the #ArcticRefuge there are 40,000 new born caribou calves chasing after their moms and each other....that is pretty special...long may it remain a sacred and special place. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @lumixcan @lumixstories #wearethearctic #birth #neverstopexploring #Regrann

Mount Rainier and Mount St Helen below us as we take the first step on the way to the Arctic Refuge. There is still much to love and cherish in our world and much to protect. 🏔
I climbed Rainier several years ago with RMI and still can hardly believe I once stood on the summit. And whenever I see the mountain, I'm again stunned by how huge it is. The king of all it surveys. What a beautiful, beautiful world we have!

Red-tailed hawk above Coyote Valley and a new blog post.
Here's a preview:
🦅
Tuesday, in a forward-hurtling metal hunk of a car, I glance through my open window at the sky. Raptors soar overhead, circling in currents of rising air. I fully expect them to be turkey vultures or red-shouldered hawks, but still I scan for my favorite bird. Then, I see it: long, straight wings, head so white it reflects the sun, white tail a stark contrast to the dark body.

#Trump's budget would allow #fossilfuel companies into the #ArcticRefuge. Call your reps at 1-888-918-6672 and ask them to protect the #Refuge from #drilling! #greenpeace

“The idea of wilderness needs no defense, it only needs defenders.” -Edward Abbey

Like Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, the Arctic Refuge's Coastal Plain is deserving of the strongest possible protections. President Trump’s budget proposal includes drilling in the Arctic Refuge, and we need your help to tell Congress: there is no need for more drilling as part of our nation’s budget, especially in iconic places like the Arctic Refuge.

The Coastal Plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a nursery for denning polar bears and countless migratory birds, and the calving grounds for the Porcupine Caribou Herd. It is one of the finest examples of wilderness remaining anywhere in the world. President Trump’s budget proposal includes drilling in the Arctic Refuge, and we need your help to tell Congress: keep development out of the Arctic Refuge, because once destroyed, it is gone forever.

As hundreds of caribou passed our camp with small calves, it was hard not to think about what they run across each year during their 1,500 mile migration. We can't let development impact this critical leg of their yearly cycle. [7/8] -@andymoderow #caribou #migration #publiclands #alaska #arcticrefuge #midnightsun #explore #explorealaska

Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska is truly special and unique. Home to iconic and majestic species like the polar bear, we believe that it is our responsibility to protect it. Find out how you can get involved to protect our nation's crown jewel by clicking the link in our bio.
