Multi-media presentation to launch new McAllister book

Conservationist, photographer and author Ian McAllister, launches his new book, the beautiful Great Bear Wild on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. at a multimedia presentation at Quw’utsun Cultural Centre in Duncan as part of a B.C.-wide tour.

During the event McAllister takes the audience on a deeply personal journey through the Great Bear Rainforest.

Globally known as one of the world’s last remaining untouched ecosystems, this diverse area is also one of the most endangered landscapes on the planet, with controversy raging at the possibility of energy projects and possible contaminant spills.

A collection of photographs backed by a personal narrative tells of McAllister’s exploration of and campaigning for the region he has called home for 25 years.
