Sandpoint — Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope

Join ICL and nonprofit publisher, Braided River, as we bring you a unique multimedia event illuminating the critically endangered world of the mountain caribou!

David Moskowitz is an expert wildlife tracker, photographer, and author of the new book Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope. Join him and Brad Smith from the Idaho Conservation League for a unique multimedia journey into the tragically threatened world of endangered mountain caribou, their home in the world’s largest last remaining inland temperate rainforest, and the critical human choices that will ultimately decide the fate of this stunning ecosystem.

David and a small team of adventurers have been tracking down these rare creatures and documenting the stunning world they call home. Join him and Idaho Conservation League in a discussion on the failure of agencies in the U.S. and Canada to regulate industrial resource extraction effectively, honor the treaty rights of indigenous peoples, and protect the integrity of the natural systems of this region—and what we can do now to help support this critically endangered habitat.

Learn about the many challenges facing these beautiful creatures and globally unique ecosystem and the shifting focus of conservation efforts in face of 21st century challenges.

A Q&A and book signing will follow the event. More about the book and corresponding  film “The Last Stand” can be found at www.caribourainforest.org
