Earth Day 2014 - New Website Launch!

Happy Earth Day 2014! This is one of the most significant days of the year for the planet and I'm excited to have it coincide with the launch of my new personal website featuring nature and conservation photography from across British Columbia. My position as a campaigner and photographer for the Ancient Forest Alliance affords me the time to thoroughly explore the back-roads of Vancouver Island in an effort to document both the beauty and destruction of our endangered old-growth forests. About 75% of the original, productive old-growth forests have already been logged on BC’s southern coast, including over 90% of the valley-bottoms where the largest trees grow and the richest biodiversity is found (see maps). A provincial plan to protect the province’s old-growth forests, to ensure sustainable second-growth forestry, and to end the export of raw, unprocessed logs to foreign mills is urgently needed. Through frequent updates on this website and blog I hope to continually shed new light on these issues by sharing compelling images, stories, and discoveries from the ground. I hope you'll join me on the adventure. -TJ
