About Jack Plant
Jack Plant is a British Canadian photographer, conservationist and wildlife guide with focus on British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest. His goal is to reach out to his audience through photography and storytelling on specific environmental and conservation issues.
Jack lives seasonally in the coastal First Nation community of Klemtu, where he has learnt from the local people’s deep connection with nature and their traditional cultural practices that sustain and protect their territory. Jack’s comfort in the wilderness and around wildlife has developed from watching the stewards and learning from the elders of Klemtu.
Jack’s love of the wild, like so many others, came from watching the incredible Sir David Attenborough BBC documentaries as a child growing up in England. As Sir David said, it is not ‘when did you discover your love of nature?’ rather, ‘when did you lose it?’.
