Pristine Seas organization working with Inuit elders, conservationists

Ossie Michelin’s childhood dream of working with the National Geographic Society became a reality last month, when he was invited to join a Pristine Seas expedition on a two-month journey to parts of the North.

Michelin is an Inuk documentary filmmaker and freelance journalist from North West River, Labrador.

In July, on the voyage in Nunatsiavut (the homeland of Labrador Inuit), he became part of the team of researchers, scientists and documentary filmmakers studying and documenting five priority areas to support Indigenous-led conservation.
