Science and Memory
In July of 2016, I traveled to the small fishing village of Cordova, Alaska with the University of Oregon's Science and Memory program. Alongside a team of 10 other undergrads, I learned the basics of wildlife photography, wrote short daily blog posts, and learned the importance of the connection between science and journalism.
Cordova, Alaska is a town that relies on fish for its livelihood. With the looming danger of climate change, Cordova is one of the millions of towns at risk of losing their most important resources. Our goal through Science and Memory was to create content that tells story of Cordova, and to emphasize the importance of climate change awareness and action.
