In this interview from the Banff Centre, photographer and conservationist Ian McAllister talks about the resurgence of marine life along Canada’s Pacific Coast, and how potential plans to build an oil pipeline could impact the area. McAllister founded Pacific Wild, an organization that focuses on research, exploration, and campaigning to protect a remote region in British Columbia called the Great Bear Rainforest. In his new book, Great Bear Wild, McAllister presents a stunning collection of photographs and personal observations of the spectacular area he calls home.
