September 26, 2018PresentationMatt Jacques"This past summer, photographer Matt Jacques ventured into Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as part of an expedition coordinated by the International League of Conservation Photographers. With U.S. lawmakers keen to open the '1002' lands of the Refuge to oil and gas development, the Porcupine caribou herd and the Gwich'in people who have depended on the herd for millennia are facing an existential threat. Join us for a rare glimpse into the Refuge, where you'll also learn what was involved in preparing for a successful trip and hear how Matt and others are putting caribou in the spotlight through purpose-driven photography."Yukon College, room A2202
