Hundreds of miles of temperate rainforest run mostly undisturbed along the British Columbia coast, enriched by warm Pacific Ocean currents and bracketed by the mountains of the Coastal Range. With road access nearly absent, wildlife thrives. Cathedrals of cedar and spruce provide home for wolf, mountain lion, mink, and bear. In the sea, dynamic upswell provides nutrient rich waters where orca, humpback whales, sea otters and salmon flourish. Recent unearthed evidence suggests humans inhabited these lands during the last ice age. Learn more in this online presentation and explore this ancient coast from the perspective of several month-long kayak expeditions.
