Sea to Peak
Sea to Peak by Joseph Crawford, Gwaii Haanas. Field Unit (British Columbia). Canada's Greatest Summer Job. As part of the celebrations to mark the 125th anniversary of national parks in Canada, 32 student video reporters worked in the 32 Parks Canada field units across the country. Students were tasked with producing a series of video reports on their experiences in our national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas.

In Haida it is said…everything depends on everything else. Ancient wisdom has always taught the importance of nature's interdependent ways.
—from "Yakoun River of Life" edited by F.C. Collison, M. McNamara, and L. Nelson
In 1985, the Haida Nation led a protest against the continued logging of what is now Gwaii Hanaas.
For months they stood the "Line at Lyell", based from the cabins at Sedgwick Bay. They succeeded in protecting the "Islands of Beauty".
From sea to peak, Gwaii Hanaas is now cooperatively managed by the Council of the Haida Nation and the Government of Canada.
