Synopsis: Pacific Spirit departs from the main by celebrating the splendour of new forests. A personal essay in words and photographs, it explores the beauty, biodiversity and spirit of the new forests of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest growing back after logging. It conveys the timely message that our forests are capable of returning to their full grandeur, even after large-scale clearcutting, and the spirit of the forest need not be lost in this transition.

Patrick Moore's message is based on personal knowledge and experience -- as a member of a family who have been logging on northern Vancouver Island for three generations -- and as a lifelong environmentalist who was a founding member of Greenpeace. A forest ecologist by profession, he has a strong love for the rainforests of British Columbia. Written in clear non-technical prose, Pacific Spirit presents a powerful counterpoint to the claims of some environmental groups.

About the Author: Dr. Patrick Moore has been a leader in the international environmental field for 25 years. He is a founding member of Greenpeace and served for nine years as president of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a director of Greenpeace International. As the leader of many campaigns Dr. Moore was a driving force shaping policy and direction while Greenpeace became the world's largest environmental activist organization.

Recently, Dr. Moore has been focused on British Columbia and the promotion of sustainability and consensus building among competing concerns. He was a member of BC government-appointed the Round Table on the Environment and Economy from 1990 - 1994. In 1990, Dr. Moore founded and chaired the BC Carbon Project, a multi-stakeholder group that worked to develop a common understanding of climate change.

Dr. Moore is a director of Waterfurnace International, the largest manufacturer of geothermal heat pumps for residential heating and cooling with renewable earth energy.

As chair of the Forest Practices Committee of the Forest Alliance of BC, he leads the process of developing the "Principles of Sustainable Forestry" which have been adopted by a majority of the industry.

In 1995, Dr. Moore published Pacific Spirit: The Forest Reborn, a photo-book that explores the beauty, biodiversity and health of new forests growing back after logging in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.

In 1991 Dr. Moore founded Greenspirit, an consultancy focusing on environmental policy and public involvement in the resource and energy sectors.
