Ricko on protecting the Ecosystem of Alaska

Ricko stated on his Instagram post that it’s another summer for him with no salmon fishing in Alaska’s interior while the commercial fisheries run unrestricted and massacring the salmon before they can get to the rivers. 

He had also written in his post that Alaska’s natives are the undisputed caretakers of their land, and he wanted the people of Alaska, who are Native and non-Native, to do everything that they can do to manage their population of wolves and bears. 

Even the moose and caribou populations have been hit harder for a long time. 

The fish in Alaska have been decimated under the government's control, which is bad for them. 

Ricko also states if they see their herbivores go, then people in the village and their culture would be starved out. 

Ricko was aware of not waiting, and they should start to control this situation. 

Teaching the lifestyle he has been living.

Ricko has been teaching his children the skills he has been using his whole life to survive. 

On one of his episodes of Life Below Zero, Ricko had gone fishing in the Yukon River with his kids. 

He saw burbot fish for the first time and started fishing with his kids. His youngest daughter, Maya, was the one who got the fish at first. 

Ricko shared that it’s beautiful having kids, being in the woods, and being happy out there. They cooked the food on the riverside and tasted it.
