Not so pretty but very real. This is the Nathan E Stewart oil spill in Heiltsuk Territory.
This beach is one shared by wolves. Colleagues on site have seen humpback whales swim by, snow geese migrate past and radio reports are heard of orca, sea otters, deer and much more in the vicinity. This is not a nondescript coastline. This is a place rich in wildlife, a place that provides employment, a place where identity comes from.
