Join David Moskowitz, expert wildlife tracker, photographer, and author of Wolves in the Land of Salmon and Wildlife of the
Pacific Northwest, for an evening of photos and stories describing the natural history of the mountain caribou of the Pacific Northwest, and the challenges they are facing for survival in a changing landscape.

Fewer than 15 caribou remain in the herd that crosses back and forth between the United States and Canada in the Pacific Northwest. As their habitat is steadily altered and destroyed by human activity, herds across the southern range are disappearing quickly. Experts estimate their population is now less than 1500 across all of British Columbia.
