Many years ago, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to see the Great Bear Rainforest. For two weeks I visited salmon hatcheries, met with First Nations leaders, and lived on the research vessel Achiever with the Raincoast conservation foundation crew. We gathered information on bear viewing, trophy hunting, salmon runs and much more. The experience really helped me understand what is at risk if human developments continues to destroy the natural world. It helped me see so much that is worth fighting for.
