Family Camping and Canoeroots Magazine is reporting that Norm Hann of Squamish, BC, has just completed a 385 kilometre trip on his stand up paddleboard along the coast of the Great Bear Rainforest. To quote:
"Norm’s unique mission was to help bring awareness to the environmental threat the proposed Enbridge oil pipeline and tanker traffic will have on the rainforest, its people and wildlife. The expedition explored vital food harvesting areas along the tanker route and documented the importance of these areas to First Nations and the Great Bear Rainforest." Hann blogged about his trip here.
Hann was the recipient of a grant from the “Be First” sponsorship program by First Ascent for his 385km Stand Up Paddleboard (S.U.P.) expedition.
