Doug Neasloss, of the Kitasoo/Xai’xais Nation, has been at the center of it all when it comes to developing ecotourism in his traditional territory, and ending trophy hunting of bears in the Great Bear Rainforest.
Doug’s work and vision are featured in this recent National Geographic news story about Coastal First Nations’ efforts to protect our territories, sustain our cultures and grow our local economies. Bravo Doug!
You can learn more about our Nations’ efforts to end trophy hunting in our territories in the newsletter of our Bear Working Group (PDF).
