Human-induced climate change is rapidly affecting Canada’s wilderness. As global mean temperatures rise and the adverse effects of warming on northern ecosystems intensify, the need to document and communicate the ensuing issues has never been more important. From the coastal forests of British Columbia to the windswept Maritimes, Canadian conservation photographers are tirelessly working to bring stories of habitat destruction and wildlife loss to the public eye. But to what extent can photography influence policy? Are we seeing enough support for these photographers and the dissemination of their work? And, most importantly, does photography really hold the power to save Canada’s wilderness?
