Orville Huntington - "It's a Changing Thing"
(Click the RETURN Button to Return to Media Palooza)
In Huslia, a small township of 300 Native Alaskans on the Koyukuk River, climate change is impacting the whole community. Tribal counselor and wildlife biologist Orville Huntington takes us out on the river, to fish, and into the woods to hunt moose. On the river, he's seeing diseases he thinks are caused by abnormally warm waters. In the forest, the trees and plants are also changing - some blooming in Fall instead of Spring. That makes Orville wonder about the future of his family and his region.
