Welcome to West-Northwest -- publishing online at Volume 21!


          Mud Flats of the Turnagain Arm, South of Anchorage, Alaska, by Arielle Harris


          West-Northwest will reduce its resource use, but not its commitment to environmental law!

          "I continue to be thrilled by WNW's evolution since its founding two decades ago and am proud that WNW is reducing its carbon footprint by going digital.  My day job with the Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative remains challenging and inspiring, collaborating with regional and international partners on climate adaptation with a focus on sustaining natural and cultural resources in the Pacific as the region undergoes unprecedented environmental change.  Outside of the workplace I spend as much time as possible in the ocean swimming, paddling on my SUP, and scuba diving."

          -- from Deanna Spooner, one of WNW's founding editors

          Hey!  Maybe WNW could use a new journal slogan:

          Plant a Tree – save your ass!
          Because Earth Day is Everyday.
