Next Episode of Port Protection Alaska is
Port Protection Alaska profiles individuals trying to survive way above the Lower 48. Surrounded by the North Pacific, Port Protection is a remote community tucked into the northwest corner of Prince of Wales Island, Alaska. The approximately 100 residents who call the rugged, unforgiving land home push the limits of survival, living an isolated and risky existence of self-reliance with no roads, government or law enforcement. However, they think the risk is worth the profound reward: a world of beauty with the security of community without the constraints of bureaucracy.
When equipment breaks down in the remote landscape of the Alaskan wild, sometimes the only way to fix things is to use some backwoods ingenuity.
The Alaskan wild offers game for those in Port Protection willing to make the hunt.
Sam and Stuart build shrimp pots out of discarded materials. Gary uses the extreme tides to chase down clams and invertebrates. Curly aims to catch his first king salmon of the season. Hans and Timbi use the break in weather to store their shelves with more halibut. And Mary Miller finds pleasure in the little things at smaller estuaries.
The community of Port Protection depends on each other to survive like a family.
Trapping is more than an activity in Port Protection - it's a lifestyle.
