Ocean Acidity and the Makah Tribe

Here’s my first feature for Chemical & Engineering News, a magazine published by the American Chemical Society in Washington. I flew out to Seattle in late January and met with Micah McCarty, the former tribal leader of the Makah. They live at the northwest corner of the Olympic Peninsula, right on the water. He’s worried about the effects of ocean acidification on shells they use for both food and ceremonies. There’s also a great video produced by C&EN with some of the video and stills I shot on our scramble down to the tidal rocks at Cape Flattery.
