18 day Peel River Expedtion down the Wind and Peel Rivers in Yukon, Canada. Part of an expedition organized by the international League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWs) to Protect the Peel. Expedition members Andy Maser, Peter Mather, Tomo Uemura, Kate Weekes, and Dona Novasky. Images also shot in the Gwich'in community of Fort MacPherson of first nations (aboriginal people) using the land in a traditional way to gather foods. The Gwich'in are working hard to protect their traditional lands, as they depend on them for the cultural and subsistence lifestyle.

Landscape images from the Wind River. A tributary of the Main Peel River. Elephant Rock can be seen from the Dempster Highway, a unique rock formation.
