Fragile and vast

I felt genuine dismay that we had to leave. But it was not a place where people could stay for more than fleeting visits. We had gained a glimpse into a whole other wild world that seemed both fragile and vast; beyond us but also at our mercy. Decisions being made by politicians and petroleum industry geologists will, in the coming months, decide the long-term future of Bremer Bay’s killer whale aggregation.
