Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest
A cinematic journey into the tragically threatened world of endangered mountain caribou, their home is the world’s largest remaining inland temperate rain forest. Critical human and political choices will ultimately decide the fate of this stunning ecosystem; spanning from the US, through much of the Kootenays, north to the Yellowhead Highway.
With Canada failing to protect critical caribou habitat from logging, mining, and recreation, honour the treaty rights of indigenous peoples, and protect the integrity of the natural systems of this region – this film gives voice to First Nations, scientists, foresters, conservationists, and recreationists attempting to chart a new path forward before it is too late.
Join Wildsight and the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative for a screening of the 40-minute film in Revelstoke, followed by a panel discussion with experts and conservationists that will focus on the mountain caribou herds that roam in close proximity to Revelstoke.
