The photographs in this Photo Essay were produced over a three month time period on the Island of Akimiski
and along the coastlines of James and Hudson Bays in Ontario, Canada.
The field study was designed to identify the changing population dynamics between Canada Geese and Snow Geese
and their impact on the local ecology. Changing agricultural practices in the U.S. mid-west were resulting in
increased numbers of Snow Geese returning to nest in the Canadian far north and impacting
negatively on several subspecies of Canada Goose.
