The votes are in, and we’re excited to present our Robert Bateman collaboration t-shirt! "The Khutze Inlet Waterfall is in the inside passage route to the Great Bear Rainforest region of British Columbia. This image represents surprises found in nature through documenting an area many are familiar with yet pinpointing a specific wonder that not many people have heard of. Robert has explored the British Columbia coast with vigour and the Great Bear Rainforest is dear to all of our hearts."

sitka_ 1. Clayoquot ‘93 - This loosely styled drawing is an excerpt from one of Robert’s sketchbooks used to document the Clayoquot Sound protest of 1993. The largest act of civil disobedience in Canada at the time, the iconic protest was a successful effort to stop the logging of local forests. This drawing shows the connection between Robert’s commitment to environmentalism and his means of generating awareness through art. During the protest, over 800 people were arrested and found guilty for standing up for what they believe in. #SitkaGoods #LovetheWild 1d

sitka_ 2. Antarctica '09 - Robert has spent an incredible amount of time abroad documenting wildlife and wilderness alike. This sketch is from a trip to Antarctica in 2009 and depicts a familiar coastal beauty from an unfamiliar place. Robert’s unwavering study of and exposure to nature through travel has been a great inspiration as an artist and a conservationist. #SitkaGoods #LovetheWild 1d

sitka_ Do you know that the Sitka Society for Conservation (SSC) and the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition are building cabins in the Skeena Watershed to strengthen First Nations’ culture, demonstrate use and occupancy of their traditional territories, and assertion of Aboriginal rights, which in turn can prevent unsustainable industrial resource development proposals? Through your support we’re bringing this issue to our community in our stores and online by growing the capacity of the SSC at sitka.ca/crowdfund. Become a member of the SSC to have 2% of every purchase you make at Sitka go towards this project. 4d

sitka_ When we decided to offer camping axes as an exclusive perk on our crowdfunding campaign, we wanted to provide the highest quality domestically made axe that we could find. That's why we partnered with Council Tools. They were established in 1886 and have been manufacturing in the U.S. since. Our product team have tested and approved this axe, and we're proud to have our name and logo engraved on it. It's available at Sitka.ca/crowdfund for $155. That includes free shipping in Canada and the U.S., and a lifetime membership to the Sitka Society for Conservation. Only 34 remain! #SitkaGoods 3w

  •   robertwgene @marinermdavies read the news, and you'd know which tankers they're referring to. 3w
  •   marinermdavies @robertwgene I was highliting the fact that tankers are tankers and tankers supply us the very fuel your damn phone is a derivative of even. Trust me, the best option is to protect our environment now with measures to ensure we're prepared to handle it, there's no stopping having oil export from bc, grow up. Put the money where it's actually going to make a difference. 3w
  •   robertwgene @marinermdavies naw, I live in an idealistic world where there are and will never be cross-province pipelines constructed on shoddy environmental assessments. How about they put a refinery in Alberta and sell gasoline straight from the source, rather than export crude to China, only to buy the shit back, at a mark-up? There are other solutions than tankers. 3w

  •   marinermdavies @robertwgene Dude you're a genius!!! Change Canada to a refinement country from a natural resource export country!!! Holy shit?!?! You should run for congress! Orrrrrr perhaps realistically we can plan how to help the environment react to a centuries old style of economic gain that this country is BASED on. Your call. Crowd fun changing the whole makeup of this country and crowd fund building refineries, or crowd fund how to protect this country from eventualities. Hey, genius, your call. Ps: I work in the marine industry trying to protect this coast from the water. What the hell do you do huh? 3w
