Ian McAllister is publishing a new book, Great Bear Wild – Dispatches from a Northern Rainforest with foreword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. It’s sure to be a delight with astounding photography and insight.

It’s hard to believe that the hunting of Grizzly Bears and Black Bears is still allowed. Go to http://www.bearsforever.ca and if you can, make a donation or at least sign the petition. Bears Forever will send you a complimentary bumper sticker or fridge magnet for signing the petition.
