Bear on barnard harbor, beaufort sea

See photographs by our guest on Friday, Subhankar Banerjee, which are featured in the new book, Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point (7 Stories Press). Banerjee is a renowned photographer who spent the past decade working to conserve the Arctic, and raise awareness about indigenous human rights and climate change.

Environmental groups are marking a global week of action against Shell’s looming oil drilling operation in the Alaskan Arctic. Shell is set to begin exploratory drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas later this summer. Activists across the world have forced dozens of Shell sites to temporarily shut down in a bid to stop the drilling.

Below, you can read a chapter from Arctic Voices.
