The author of a new book about the plight of the mountain caribou will speak in Nelson this week.

David Moskowitz, author of Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope is an expert wildlife tracker and photographer.

His book is a journey into the world of the endangered mountain caribou, their home in the world’s last remaining inland temperate rainforest, and the critical human choices that will ultimately decide the fate of the ecosystem.

Moskowitz will discuss the failure of agencies in the U.S. and Canada to regulate industrial resource extraction effectively, honour the treaty rights of Indigenous peoples, and protect the integrity of the natural systems of the region.

Moskovitz will speak at the Adventure Hotel in Nelson at 7 p.m. on Jan. 16.
