Alaska Wilderness League and filmmaker Mark Titus present a true “Geography of Hope” in Bristol Bay, Alaska. This virtual celebration of our recent victory protecting Bristol Bay from the proposed Pebble Mine showcases vibrant videos, images and stories about what it means to be connected to this magical region and its salmon.
Titus worked in the Alaska salmon industry for 25 years and then turned his passion to protecting the wild salmon of Bristol Bay from the threat of Pebble Mine. Salmon might be considered the lifeblood of Alaska, and in this Geography of Hope episode, breathtaking snapshots of Bristol Bay will reveal deep relationships between people and the land.
Fall in love with wild Alaska as we also explore a larger, global question highlighted in Titus’ film The Wild: How do we reconcile the Western world’s human separation from the natural world that sustains us – and if we can change course – how do we save the wild that remains? Wild salmon show us how to give of ourselves for that which is far greater than ourselves, and our success in protecting Bristol Bay offers renewed hope that our efforts can leave future generations with a world that sustains them.
