CARIBOU RAINFOREST: Multimedia Book Launch & Film Screening of “Last Stand”
Join David Moskowitz, expert wildlife tracker, photographer, and author for a unique multimedia event to honor the launch of his new book, Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope from conservation publisher Braided River, and the accompanying film “Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest.” Together the book and film craft a cinematic 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.
Associate Producer of the film, Marcus Reynerson, will join David Moskowitz in discussing the failure of agencies in the U.S. and Canada to regulate industrial resource extraction effectively, honor 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.
David, Marcus 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.
A Q&A and book signing will follow the event.
