Nature has been the source of my inspiration, spirituality, and childhood, I love where I grew up, the mountains, the amazing wildlife that inhabits British Columbia’s incredible forestry, it is and will always be my home.
At a rate of 2 soccer fields every hour our ancient and massive old trees on Vancouver island are being cut down (3x faster than tropical rainforests) now only 10% of the biggest low elevation trees remain. They are a keystone in the delicate ecosystem of the BC coast including the marine environment (salmon spawning streams are also in old growth Forrest’s). So why am I bringing this up? The @sierraclubbc along with @bryanadams (even a bigger hero to me now) are doing all they can to help change this but are in desperate need of volunteers! So to my homies on the ground at home who want to get involved in an amazing cause please go to www.rainforestisland.ca also use it to get more info, to volunteer and to SIGN A LETTER TO THE BC GOVERNMENT. One step at a time we can start to implement positive change.Thanks for reading, I’m signing the letter now- Alexander
