As mentioned in an earlier post, one of my Grizzly Bear images will be featured in Norm’s ongoing presentations to help raise awareness for the Great Bear Rainforest. I’m very proud of this affiliation and I applaud Norm’s efforts.
In 2010 standup paddle boarder Norm Hann, along with sea kayaker Brian Huntington of the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition, paddled the proposed oil tanker route 400km from Kitimat to Bella Bella. The goal of the Standup4Greatbear Expedition was to bring awareness to the threat of these oil tankers in the Great Bear Rainforest and to highlight the traditional food harvesting areas of the First Nation’s people along the route. Since then Norm created the Standup4Greatbear Society. Check out the documentary below and visit Norm’s website here: normhann.com
