Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope

A multimedia journey into the critically threatened world of the mountain caribou

David Moskowitz is an expert wildlife tracker, photographer and author of the new book Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope. Join him on Thursday, January 17 at Kimberley’s Centre 64 for a unique multimedia 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.

David has tracked, studied, and photographed these caribou extensively in order to understand and communicate their plight. He doesn’t identify a lone villain, but rather describes how climate change, settler colonialism, industrial logging, mineral extraction, predators, recreationists and a confluence of factors have worked against this fragile species and the vulnerable environment upon which it relies.

Join David at his upcoming event on January 17 at Centre 64 to learn about the many challenges facing these beautiful creatures and globally unique ecosystem, and the shifting focus of conservation efforts in the face of 21st Century challenges.

A Q&A and book signing will follow the event.

More about the book and corresponding film ‘The Last Stand’ can be found at The event will begin at 7 p.m. (doors at 6:30). Entrance is by donation.
