Mick Fanning Joins Wild Ark Trip to Alaska

Mick Fanning in remote South West Alaska to discover an ecosystem under threat from Pebble Mine.

"After competing at the Hurley Pro Trestles in Southern California, 3x World Surfing Champion Mick Fanning left his surfboards behind and boarded a TransNorthern 19 Passenger Super DC-3 plane from Anchorage to Bristol Bay in Alaska’s South West. This time his quest was not to catch an icy wave but rather the allure of a trophy-sized Rainbow Trout. The new global ambassador for conservation company Wild Ark, joined founder Mark Hutchinson on an educational expedition to one of the wildest, most remote areas of Alaska and arguably the world. The team was to learn how the fishery, with the richest supply of wild Sockeye salmon left in the world, is under threat from a proposed open pit gold and copper mine known as Pebble Mine."
