2:00 pm: Towards a Wild Future for Bowen
Bob Turner, a retired scientist, former island mayor, filmmaker, and a director of the Bowen Island Conservancy, spoke on the topic “What is the Future for Wild Nature on Bowen?“
Bob’s talk addressed our island’s remarkable Wild Nature, and questioned how we as a community can help Wild Nature thrive. Bob also introduced a new Conservancy project that intends to gather and harness biological information so that we better appreciate what we have, and so that Wild Nature’s needs are taken into account in our decision-making processes.
Bob’s new movie–My Adventures with the Wild of Home–which was screened as part of his talk, seeks to start this conversation.
