Celebrate the oceans: new song, Videos & Canada c3
In celebration of Canada C3 and the oceans, on June 8 (World Oceans Day) we released a song called "We’re Connected to the Ocean". This song was composed and recorded some years ago with assistance from the Canadian Wildlife Federation, but not officially released... until now. Kind of melancholy, this song reminds us of our integral relationship with all life on the planet, including the oceans...and that we all have a part to play in protecting the ecosystems that support us all.
If you're a guitar player and singer, here are the lyrics and chords. Sing along with the lyrics video below!
I'm honoured to have been a participant in the Canada C3 expedition. This Canada 150 Signature event took Canadians on a real and virtual research ship voyage from Toronto all the way through the Northwest Passage over to Victoria BC. Coast to coast to coast! I was Leg 12 of the expedition, which traveled from Tuktoyaktuk, NWT around Alaska through the Bering Strait to Prince Rupert BC.... including a visit to the famed Qikiqtaruk/Herschel Island! In anticipation I did a lyrics video for the Whaling Song, sing along below.
Or, sing along "live" with me and Richard Gordon and Yukon premier Sandy Silver on a Facebook Live event from Herschel. Richard Gordon, Chief Ranger performs his Qikiktaruk song, as well as dancers and drummers from Aklavik, NWT.
