Conservation, community, cinema — and caribou!
Two for the caribou! On Thursday, November 30 at 7 p.m. PT we invite you to join Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative for an evening of conservation, community, cinema — and caribou! Join us at the Vancouver Patagonia store for a compelling double feature film event — “Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest” and “Caribou Homeland.”
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring:
Filmmaker of “Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest” and “Caribou Homeland,” David Moskowitz
Naomi Owens-Beek, Director of Treaty Rights and Environmental Protection for Saulteau First Nations and a member of the Nîkanêse Wah tzee Stewardship Society
Y2Y’s Tim Burkhart who will speak about the on-the-ground impact of caribou conservation in Treaty 8 territory.
Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest: Hidden in the interior of the Pacific Northwest is the largest remaining inland temperate rainforest on earth. This magnificent landscape is home to numerous First Nations communities, thousand year old trees and critical habitat for endangered species like mountain caribou. However, industrial development has pushed this ecosystem to the tipping point. The 34 minute documentary “Last Stand” puts the Caribou Rainforest on the map before it’s too late.
Caribou Homeland: Two First Nations in western Canada come together to protect an iconic animal they’ve relied upon for countless generations. This film offers a glimpse into the multi-faceted, Indigenous led, conservation project that has created the most successful caribou recovery program in North America. The West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations’ work to restore mountain caribou, food sovereignty and their traditional cultures is a unique and poignant bright spot on the conservation map.
Registration is requested for each attendee. Please follow the RSVP link to sign up.
