Behind the photography of Caribou Rainforest

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.

Wolverine Recovery in the North Cascades

Cascades Wolverine Project is a grassroots effort to support wolverine recovery in the North Cascades. The group conducts field science, captures engaging images of this elusive mountain carnivore, and builds backcountry community science and stewardship.

Join us for a presentation by field biologist Steph Williams and wildlife photographer David Moskowitz as they talk about the difficulty in studying and protecting an animal that is notoriously hard to track. They’ll share images and stories from their years in the field as well as ways we can all contribute to the recovery of wolverines in the North Cascades.

This event is free, and we’ll have snacks and drinks from Patagonia Provisions.

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.

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.
