The BC government's own logging agency, BC Timber Sales, is failing to comply with the Province's own inadequate standards for old-growth forest protection, according to a Ministry of Forests investigation into old-growth logging in the Nahmint Valley near Port Alberni.
Excited to share the latest Ancient Forest Alliance video highlighting the village of Tahsis and the at-risk McKelvie Valley watershed. It was a challenge to film this while also shooting stills but stoked on the final result! Thanks goes to Tahsis locals Martin Davis, Ramsay Dyer, & Carla Haywood for giving us the grand tour, Nick Temos for the flight time, and Daniel J Pierce for the superb editing job as well.
Photos from today's incredible rally where thousand's of diverse people showed up to support the global movement for a livable planet!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
In September of 2018, I spent 3 weeks in the Great Bear Rainforest working as a photographer & naturalist aboard a ship called the Maple Leaf. The Great Bear stretches along BC’s central and north coast and is part of the largest temperate rainforest in the world - 85% of which is now off limits to logging thanks to conservation efforts. From whales and wolves, bears and eagles, and waterfalls and tall granite walls, the region is stunning beyond words. Here are some photos from the second of two 8-day trips we embarked on while there.
