Richard Kahn is an EMMY award winning filmmaker whose work focusing on medical ethics and social policy issues has been shown on PBS, The History Channel, The Discovery Channel and MSNBC.
A month long canoe trip in the Brooks Range in 2000 inspired Kahn to use his skills as a filmmaker, photographer and writer to protect the wild and undeveloped public land within and around the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. Since that first trip he has returned to the North each year. He has paddled more than 4000 miles of Wilderness Rivers in the Brooks Range and NPR-A. In 2011, with the support of the Alaska Wilderness League he presented his journals and photographs to audiences in New England and the Mid-West.
