Cybertracker classes provide an opportunity for quality, focused learning from some of the best trackers in the country. They are designed to further participant's tracking knowledge, as well as to rigorously test and document their current tracking skill set. Originally designed to help African Bushmen gain employment on game preserves, they also provide an internationally recognized certification of tracking ability, an important credential for wildlife researchers and environmental educators as well as for people who want test and push their own ability. Evaluations are entirely field based, striving to expose participants to the widest range of tracks and signs as possible. Discussions are encouraged, giving participants a chance to air their thoughts and receive individualized instruction.

This class will be located at several different field locations on the Mt Hood National Forest, within an hour and a half drive of Portland.

Behind the Lens in the Caribou Rainforest

Join David Moskowitz, photographer and author of the award winning book Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hopeand producer of the film Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforestfor a night of images and stories from one of the world’s most unique terrestrial ecosystems. Found in the northern interior of the Pacific Northwest, the Caribou Rainforest is the only remaining inland temperate rainforest on Planet Earth and home to one of the world’s most unique ecotypes of caribou. 

 David will focus the night on exploring the highlights, challenges, ethics of documenting a vanishing species in a remote rainforest and the widely different human cultures that call the region home. Over four years, David captured images and recorded video in every season of the year in the Caribou Rainforest. From backcountry ski expeditions to multi-day canoe excursions, to camera trapping in remote mountain valleys, David sought ways to capture the images that would tell the both inspiring and heartbreaking story of a vanishing ecosystem. Along the way he joined researchers, loggers, conservationists, and First Nations wildlife stewards and activists.

Slideshow hosted by Florance Camera Club.

Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope

The Mountaineers BeWild Speakers Series

Join David Moskowitz, expert wildlife tracker, photographer, and author of Caribou RainforestWolves in the Land of Salmon and Wildlife of the Pacific Northwest, for an evening of photos and stories exploring the world endangered mountain caribou and the last great inland temperate rainforest left on the planet. David and a small team of adventurers have been tracking down these rare creatures and documenting the stunning world they call home. 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.

Fewer than 15 caribou remain in the herd that crosses back and forth between the United States and Canada in the Pacific Northwest, while the entire population of this endangered population of caribou is now less then 1500 across their entire range which stretches north into central British Columbia. As their habitat is steadily altered and destroyed by human activity, herds across the entire range continue to decline despite a variety of conservation efforts. Why this is has to teach us about carrying for our planet’s natural heritage on both local and global scales.

Books will be available for purchase and David will be signing after the show.
