Refuge: 41 photos for 41 days of the Malheur Occupation
In mid-March, I returned to Malheur National Wildlife Refuge — where I have spent much time in the past and which I have written about more extensively here — to photograph the goose and crane migrations at the refuge, following the 41 day occupation of the refuge by militant extremists that pushed an agenda to privatize public lands with the collusion and support of politicians.
Here are 41 photographs I took of the refuge and environs made over a period of 4 days.
Daniel Barton is an Assistant Professor of Wildlife Biology at Humboldt State University, in Arcata, California. He is grateful to have been able to visit Malheur and Harney County again, and hopes to again, soon. He wrote more extensively about the occupation here.
