Standing Up for the Greatbear Rainforest: Nikwax Faction member Norm Hann

Leave a comment

When a Canadian energy company made a proposal to start routing oil tankers through the Douglas Channel and Greatbear Rainforest in British Columbia, Canada,  the birds, whales and other wildlife endemic to the area couldn’t stand up for themselves. So Norm Hann stood for them.

Norm and his partners traveled the 400 km tanker route by standup paddleboard, connecting with the Native people that have lived for generations in this pristine wilderness and raising awareness of the impacts of the proposal. His efforts remind us all that there is ALWAYS something we can do and one person CAN make a difference.

If exploring incredible terrain via paddleboard (or just taking a few lessons) is EXACTLY what you were hoping to do this summer, Norm’s your guy – Mountain Surf Adventures.

This is their story:

Thank you Norm.
