A multimedia journey into the critically threatened world of the mountain caribou

David Moskowitz is an expert wildlife tracker, photographer, and author of the new book Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope. Join him for a unique multimedia journey into the tragically threatened world of endangered mountain caribou, their home in the world’s largest last remaining inland temperate rainforest, and the critical human choices that will ultimately decide the fate of this stunning ecosystem.

David and a small team of adventurers have been tracking down these rare creatures and documenting the stunning world they call home. Join him in a discussion on the failure of agencies in the US and Canada to regulate industrial resource extraction effectively, honour the treaty rights of indigenous peoples, and protect the integrity of the natural systems of this region—and what we can do now to help support this critically endangered habitat.

Learn about the many challenges facing these beautiful creatures and globally unique ecosystem and the shifting focus of conservation efforts in face of 21st century challenges.

A Q&A and book signing will follow the event. More about the book and corresponding film “The Last Stand” can be found here.
