Kotzebue in iPhone snaps

Photographer Katie Orlinsky and I did a big trip in June, visiting Kotzebue and Point Hope, looking at the ways climate change is impacting subsistence foods. Here are some iPhone pictures from Kotzebue, where we were reporting for National Geographic News about the short bearded seal season. We’re working on a project this summer about climate change and subsistence, funded by the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting. Stay tuned for more stories.

  1. Julia, your posts are wonderful. Most people down here don’t know Alaska at all, and if they do, it’s because they’ve fished on the Kenai, a teeny part of the state. I look forward to what you write.
