Awards and Saturday Keynote Address: Natural Relations: Inspiring Conservation through Visual Storytelling
Join us in Merchant Hall to congratulate the winners of our Nature Visions Photography Contest. Stay for the Saturday night keynote address by Amy Gulick.
Photographer and writer Amy Gulick has swum with whales, fished with bears, and napped with apes during her many adventures exploring the world’s oceans, forests, and her own backyard. Early in her career, she recognized the power of compelling images and stories to raise awareness about the magnificence of wild places and the species that inhabit them. For the past 25 years, she has used her work to help people understand why nature is important to all life on Earth.
Issaquah Salmon Hatchery
Brown Bear with Female Chum Salmon
Behavior: Salmon comprise a significant part of the diet of coastal brown bears in Alaska. Toward the end of a good salmon season, bears can afford to be picky and target the richest parts of the fish — eggs, skin and brain. Just prior to spawning, female salmon are so full of eggs that even a small amount of applied pressure will force the eggs out of their bodies.
