What happens when the largest known natural deposits of gold and copper are discovered in the headwaters of one of the world's last fully functioning and intact ecosystems? In this episode of Ethics Today we visit with Meghan Barker, the Bristol Bay Organizer for Trout Unlimited. We discuss Bristol Bay, its ecological, cultural, and economic significance, the threat posed by Pebble Mine, and a new documentary coming out this summer.
