On the remote island of Aiktak in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, wildlife researcher Mikaela Howie spent four months monitoring seabird populations. Mikaela, along with one additional field biologist, lived by themselves in extreme isolation from the outside world while conducting this research. The name Aiktak comes from the Unangan word Aikhag, which means, “going on a voyage”. This is a story about a voyage of personal discovery in one of the most remote corners of the globe.
