Art for an Oil-Free Coast, about the book

The 160-page book, now on its second printing, highlights the art pieces, most of which are originals, from 50 incredible Canadian and First Nation artists like Robert Bateman, Robert Davidson, Craig Benson, Carol Evans, Lissa Calvert and Roy Henry Vickers.  The art is featured with writings from esteemed Canadian scientists such as David Suzuki, Wade Davis and Paul Paquet.  

Canada’s Raincoast at Risk

All works are grouped into one of nine chapters that cover the region, the people, sea birds, land mammals, marine mammals, forests, estuaries, salmon, and the underwater marine life of Canada’s raincoast, including the Queen Charlotte Basin and the Great Bear Rainforest.
