This short documentary puts the Caribou Rainforest on the map before it’s too late.

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.

  • Lisa Matthaus, Provincial Lead for Organizing for Change
  • Sarah Korpan, Legislative Affairs Specialist for Ecojustice Canada
  • Tim Burkhart, BC Manager – Strategic Engagement and North for Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative
