Caribou Commons Project Slideshow & Lecture

Caribou Commons Lecture & Slideshow Tuesday, April 12th


The Mendocino Land Trust and the Mendocino Coast Audubon Society are
co-sponsoring a lecture/slideshow by Ken Madsen, an award-winning
photographer and conservationist from Whitehorse, Yukon at 7:00 p.m. on
April 12, 2005 at the Matheson Performing Arts Center (at Mendocino High
School). Ken's current initiative is the Caribou Commons Project, an
international effort to protect the calving grounds of the Porcupine Caribou
Herd located in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge now threatened by
industrial oil and gas development. A unique collaboration among the
aboriginal Gwich'in People of northern Yukon and Alaska, northern artists,
and conservationists, the Caribou Commons Project is making people aware of
the issues and the resources at stake through a stunning slide show
presentation. The Mendocino coast and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
are connected as both locations provide habitat supporting migratory
shorebirds. For more information contact Holly Newberger at 962-0470 or
