Shawnecee Schneider, Bay Area resident and the crew of Deep Green Wilderness project on s/v Orion, will be returning from a 6-week voyage around Vancouver Island and up to Haida Gwaii in British Columbia. Shawnecee will present a slide show about their search for the North Pacific Right Whale, arguably the most endangered population of whales on the planet.
Shawnecee will also screen her last film project with Deep Green Wildneress, The Unknown Sea: A Voyage on the Salish. This film investigates the historical, political and ecological factors that went into the recognition of our newest inland sea. The film creates a sense of place highlighting some of the most iconic species and seascapes of the Salish Sea ecosystem. The Unknown Sea: A Voyage on the Salish explores the natural and cultural history of the area through interviews of people deeply connected with the Salish Sea.
Please help us welcome Shawnecee home!
