Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest at The Arts Station
Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest is a cinematic journey into the tragically threatened world of endangered mountain caribou, their home is the world’s largest remaining inland temperate rainforest. Critical human and political choices will ultimately decide the fate of this stunning ecosystem, which spans 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 35-minute film in Fernie, followed by a panel discussion with experts and conservationists that will focus on the endangered mountain caribou of Southeast BC.
Tickets: $10 in advance online and $12 at the door.
