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.

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.

Slideshow: Life in the Cold

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.
