RAVEN - Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs

Gorgeous Peel Watershed images from wildlife photographer Tayu Hayward

Hear wildlife photographer and documentary filmmaker Tayu Hayward talk about his trip to Snake River in the Peel Watershed. This precious area has recently been the subject of a Supreme Court challenge: RAVEN, who helped sponsor the cost of the Indigenous-led case, are all eagerly awaiting the court’s decision.

Says Hayward, “Back in the late summer of 2016, three of my closest friends and I canoed the Yukon’s Snake and Peel Rivers, coursing our way from the vast alpine meadows and soaring summits of the Mackenzie Mountains, down onto the storied Peel Plateau past the Arctic circle. A three-week journey over 500kms, through one of the most remote and undisturbed watersheds in North America – an area over twice the size of Vancouver Island.”
