Supporting conservation of an imperiled ecosystem and an endangered species through film, photography, journalism & collaboration.
Pressure from human activities
Mountain Caribou serve as a “canary in the coal mine”, their continued decline reflecting pressure from human resource extraction, recreation activities, and climate change on the remote and beautiful landscapes that these majestic caribou call home.

From Heartbreak to Hope
In a North American rainforest, that few people even know exists, about a dozen dwindling herds of caribou are struggling to survive.
Caribou Rainforest doesn’t tell an easy story, ask easy questions, or pretend that there are easy solutions to the possible extinction of the last mountain caribou herds found in Canada and the United States. There are fewer than twenty animals left in the last US herd. Yet what Caribou Rainforest does—with photographs, words, and science—is explain why this is happening, so that as a community we don’t repeat our mistakes, even when our intentions are good.
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.
