David Moskowitz is an expert wildlife tracker, photographer, and author of the new book Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope. Join him 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.
This event will include a multimedia presentation, a screening of the short film The Last Stand, and a Q&A and book signing, and is sponsored by Yellowstone to Yukon, and University of Montana’s Wildlife Biology Program, W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation, the UM School of Journalism, and nonprofit publisher Braided River.
David and a small team of adventurers have been tracking down these rare creatures and documenting the stunning world they call home. Join him in a discussion on 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.
