Join me in the cold, dark, life-sustaining NE Pacific Ocean to discover the great beauty, mystery and fragility hidden there.

2017 WILD Calendar

2015 calendar at UBC

Photo gives a sense of the size of the calendar . . . maybe! 2015 calendar with Blue Whale skeleton in background.

2017  .  .  . may it be a year of even greater understanding of our connection to the wild.

Below, I have shared the images from my 2017 WILD Calendar. All photos are from around NE Vancouver Island, BC, CANADA and their inclusion in next year’s calendar is largely the result of voting on social media.

I am very happy to again be sending them far and wide. Thank you so much for this. It is extremely heartening to have this support and help in increasing awareness about the life in the cold, dark NE Pacific Ocean and our connection to it, no matter how far we are from her shores.

That’s what all the photos and words are about as “The Marine Detective” and what I’ve strived for with the calendar. Inspiration. Connection. Understanding our capacity for positive change when our value systems change. Caring More. Consuming Less. Voting for the future and . . . . knowing our place IN the environment. 

Further information on the WILD calendars can be found after the calendar images below. This includes where they can be purchased.
