The Faltering Light Project
Thank you for supporting the Stop the Trophy Hunt petition and the Faltering Light visual petition book project. Please help us reach 15,000 signatures by April 1st by forwarding this email to your friends. To date, over 11000 individuals have signed the petition. In 2010, I personally delivered the first edition of the book to the Minister of the Environment, Barry Penner, in Victoria. Two years later no effort has been undertaken by the new premier to protect bears. Consequently a second edition has been drafted, more essays, more pictures and a lot more signatures thanks to all your efforts. The book will be presented as a respectful request for the termination of the trophy hunt to Premier Christy Clark as soon as possible. Hopefully before the hunt opens in April 2012.
Despite a broad campaign from many environmental organizations here in British Columbia, the trophy hunt is still allowed to proceed. As a consequence, I would very much appreciate your help to forward the petition link to as many people as you possibly can. My intention is to release a second edition of the book on April 1st 2012 with a substantial increase in the number of signatures compared to the first book. In the meantime, please help spread awareness of this issue and the petition website. I also hope you can take the time to browse the draft second edition of the book on-line and take pride in your contribution to help save these magnificent bears.
I would also like to thank all the contributing writers, Ian McAllister, Kevin J. Smith, Wayne McCrory, Simon Jackson, Jane Goodall PhD DBE, Arthur W. Sterritt, Cristina G. Mittermeier, Charlie Russell, Matthias Breiter. Claire Hume, Faisal Moola, Chris Darimont and Paul Paquet for their wonderful eloquent essays.
Your support for this project is deeply appreciated.

Our micro hydro system has worked out well this winter. With almost 8 weeks of operation we have saved close to 4,000 litres of diesel fuel to date. As we gear up for the 2012 season and our preseason fisheries project we will have to switch to our diesel generator since our electrical requirements will be beyond what our micro hydro can produce. Still all in all we are very pleased with what we have been able to do this winter.
Knight Inlet Lodge is looking at other ways we can supplement our hydro requirements including solar and wind options that may be feasible in the very near future. Located in Glendale Cove, Knight Inlet Lodge is Canada’s premier grizzly bear veiwing destination.
