Part of the Planet Forward team traveled to Alaska with our wonderful partners, Lindblad Expeditions, and our 2022 Storyfest winners: SUNY-ESF student Delaney Graham, University of Arizona student Halley Hughes, and from GW, Jennifer Cuyuch and Farzona Comnas. We're taking it all in.
We have seen amazing things — creatures of all types, glaciers, natural wonders, and the absolute vastness of planet earth. The whales, porpoises, sea lions, sea otters, and seals have dazzled us and the clear skies and calm seas have centered us. We have all discovered inspiring stories along the way.
We look forward to sharing the students’ reporting in the coming weeks, right here on Planet Forward.
(Note: Our 2022 Storyfest winner from Ithaca College, and a 2020 Storyfest winner from Carleton College, will travel later this summer — so we'll have more reporting later, too!)
Editor's Note: Lindblad Expeditions, our Planet Forward Storyfest Competition partner, made this series possible by providing winners with an experiential learning opportunity aboard one of their ships. All editorial content is created independently. We thank Lindblad Expeditions for their continued support of our project. Read all the stories from the expedition in our Astonishing Alaska series.
