In his own words

Canadian Wildlife - - BIGGER PICTURE -

I feel so lucky to be here. In Great Slave Lake, we have what the Great Lakes were like 200 years ago be­fore hu­man-in­duced change. We can see the orig­i­nal sta­tus of the fish world be­fore sig­nif­i­cant im­pact by hu­mans. The cis­coes in Great Slave Lake are like Dar­win’s finches, tremen­dous va­ri­ety within a sin­gle iso­lated sys­tem… in Arc­tic freshwater en­vi­ron­ments that are largely un­doc­u­mented. I was find­ing, down in the depths, vari­ants that have never been seen by sci­en­tists. With un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy and de­tailed sci­en­tific il­lus­tra­tions, I can bring peo­ple into this un­seen un­der­wa­ter world.”
