Surfer Mick Fanning made his way to the Bristol Bay region of Alaska and saw for himself how sacred this area is. In a video and post for WildArk, Fanning unpacks his experience.
“World Surfing Champion and WildArk Ambassador Mick Fanning accompanied the latest WildArk expedition to visit the Bristol Bay region and meet with the Igiugig Community. Mick said, ‘Now that I’ve retired, and experienced a whole lot of life, I can see the effects of what we are doing to the earth and I just feel like we need to think carefully about our impact. I have only visited Alaska on a few occasions, but I have been so attracted by the pure nature and the wildlife of the region. This land and location at Bristol Bay is incredible, the river provides so much for bears, wolves, eagles everything, it’s all here. To have the opportunity to come back and help preserve the land has been an incredible experience.'”
