Caribou rainforest: from heartbreak to hope

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

David Moskowitz will be at Centre 64 on January 17 to discuss his new book, Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope. Moskowitz is an expert wildlife tracker, photographer and author.

Join David on the 17th at Centre 64 for a unique multimedia journey into the world of endangered mountain caribou.

Lindsay Cuff, Communications Manager with Wildsight says Moskowitz takes a look at mountain caribou’s 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 has tracked, studied, and photographed these caribou extensively in order to understand and communicate their plight,” wrote Cuff in a press release. “He doesn’t identify a lone villain, but rather describes how climate change, settler colonialism, industrial logging, mineral extraction, predators, recreationists and a confluence of factors have worked against this fragile species and the vulnerable environment upon which it relies.”

Join David at his upcoming event to learn about the many challenges facing these creatures and globally unique ecosystem, and the shifting focus of conservation efforts in the 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 at www.caribourainforest.org. The event will begin at 7 p.m. (doors at 6:30). Entrance is by donation.
