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.
