A Visual Journey into a Vanishing Ecosystem: Mountain Caribou and the Inland Temperate Rainforest of the Pacific Northwest

Mountain caribou have long-depended on the rugged and remote habitat that humans now use for lumber, hydropower, energy extraction, and winter recreation. While these creatures are resilient, they are also highly vulnerable to these human-caused stressors. During the Winter of 2018-19, the last herd that crosses back and forth between the United States and Canada was officially extirpated. The total population of mountain caribou is estimated at less than 1500 across all of British Columbia. Caribou numbers continue to decline despite numerous ongoing efforts to conserve these animals, including controversial restrictions on logging and winter recreation, and predator control.

Join conservationist, photographer, and educator, Marcus Reynerson, as he shares about his time with the Mountain Caribou Initiative, a visual storytelling collective giving voice to First Nations, scientists, foresters, conservationists, and recreationists attempting to chart a new path forward for one of the most unique ecosystems on earth before it is too late. It is a story that defies easy answers for the problems humans have created, and one that illuminates the complex web of ecological relationships which humans have altered in ways not easily undone.


The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, June 11th. The entrance door will open at 7 pm and we will begin the evening at 7:30 PM with an Update from the Executive. Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 117 people in the hall. Once at capacity we will be forced to turn attendees away. Feel free to grab a drink at the bar before the social starts.
