A slideshow hosted by Selkirk's Conservation Alliance
In some ways, the ice age never fully ended in the higher elevations of the Southern Selkirks and other mountain ranges of the Pacific Northwest. From recently discovered slugs reliant on cool air temperatures to fixtures of the far north such as lynx and caribou, the high elevation forests and tundra of these mountains provide refuge to numerous species of animals specially adapted to life in the cold and snow.
Now, at the onset of a new age, the Anthropocene, the future of these Pleistocene hold outs and the ecosystem they depend on, face new threats to their survival. Biologist and photographer David Moskowitz will take us on a visual journey into the fascinating world of these animals living on the edge and explore what lays ahead for them and the mountain landscapes of the region.
