Do salmon grow in trees? In the Tongass National Forest of Alaska, the answer is yes. With grizzly bears, wolves, wild salmon, humpback whales, and more, the Tongass is America's largest national forest, and contains one-third of the world's rare remaining old-growth temperate rainforests. Photographer Amy Gulick's current project (funded in part by The Mountaineers Foundation), Salmon in the Trees, tells the story of this magnificent rainforest and the opportunity we have today to ensure it stays that way.
Amy Gulick is a photographer and writer whose work has been featured in Sierra, Audubon and National Wildlife, and the conservation campaigns of the Alaska Wilderness League, Alaska Rainforest Campaign and Sierra Club. She is a Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers, and the 2008 recipient of the Daniel Housberg Wilderness Image Award presented by the Alaska Conservation Foundation.
