This is the home page of Fukushima: Expedition For Life .
My name is Dana Durnford you can find my info phone number etc at the top under contact , I will be leading a 4 man expedition to document in pictures and samples and using 4 Geiger counters and dosimeters through 9000 km of Canadian coast lines starting September 2nd 2014 for 30 days . Then its off to the North West Territories for 6 days to check their ocean caost line and see if the devastation is there . Then its off to the Yukon for 6 days of cost line and back down the inside passage to BC Canada for a 30 day trip through 26,000 islands .
This expedition was prompted by the discovery that out of 5500 species along a 200 km coast line of Canada we only discovered 12 species left . We seen only 4 species of algae out of 600 we never found any of the 70 species of sea anemones we seen only one species of sea star out of 64 known local species . We never seen a single bull kelp forest but did see one thin strand of bull kelp . We never got a single insect attack or bite on 16 beaches at low tides nor did we see any insects on our windows or grill after 160 km of highways full of trees .
All pictures and we expect to provide at least a 1000 a day are free for you to use and we will provide accurate GPS and maps for all samples and pictures . This is a emergency citizen driven expedition and the beginning is the hardest part , I am happy to say we have climbed that hurdle with help from private donors and depend upon your donations to allow us to complete the survey so everyone can have irrefutable evidence to move forward with . The Fukushima nuclear accident is event is far from a resolution and constitutes a present and grave threat to all life on earth with no exceptions .
Day 1 The Expedition For Life crew circled Salt Spring Island taking over 700 pictures there was little to no life they did find a single patch with a couple of species of sea anemones but the rest of the coast was naked . The day before we did find a small bull kelp forest and we got good pictures of something quite extraordinary someone had collected random pieces of bull kelp and tied it together it was all dieing but very bizarre someone had when to such lengths to create a tiny kelp field I really do not know what to make of it . There will be 3 sets of pictures from today the first set is by Jason the 2nd is by Terry and the 3rd is by Simon . Double click the picture below to start and use the toggles to the left and right to surf the pictures . They were buzzed by a low flying silent plane several times with no windows and the pictures they took all came out white so we have no proof , they were the only pictures like that .
