Quote from bigpull It’s alternately inspirational, touching and heartbreaking to see the AK2UK crew fighting with everything they’ve got to defend the fish on which their lives depend, and to speak sense to the dark cloud on the horizon that is the Pebble Project. Everett Thompson, for instance, in a London Times op-ed piece, tugs on the heartstrings of Britons by comparing Bristol Bay today to the River Thames centuries ago. The Thames, which flows through London, was once one of the great Atlantic salmon rivers of the world until London became an epicenter of the industrial revolution. The last salmon in the Thames is believed to have been caught in 1833.
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
