I am honored and very excited! My dear friends Eric Boyum and Trish Boyum from Ocean Adventures have invited me to work with them on their vessel, The Great Bear II in mid May as they take guests on an 8 day tour called “Inlets of the Grizzly / Great Bear Rainforest.” In 2011 I first met Eric and Trish and traveled to “The GBR” as their guest. It was an incredible… Read More
…a throwback to 2011 when I first visited “The Great Bear Rainforest.” My love and support always to “The Gitga’at Nation” and any efforts that help to protect your territory. We beat Enbridge and Northern Gateway and we will protect the rest of the coast too!

This is certainly cause to celebrate this… Read More

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… Read More
Read about Jon Dawkins unfortunate recent experience on Price Island, similar in ways to what happened to me in Kyuquot in 2013.
I’ve recently partnered with Wolf Awareness Inc. to pursue an initiative later this year to help raise funds. I’m very proud to be associated with this foundation and to stand alongside their efforts. wolfawarenessinc.org
