One Shot for Coastal Carnivores Exhibit Feature • Botany Bay by Karen Cooper
Exhibit Text: “Botany Bay on the west coast of Vancouver Island has everything you would expect from a name steeped in legend. Rugged, rocky, windswept and hauntingly alive. The easy 2.8km trail connecting Botany Bay to Botanical Beach should be on the must do list for everyone visiting this area. From gnarled stunted trees to the tidal pools and rocky beaches, there is glorious life along every inch of the trail.”
This 30×45 inch aluminum fine art print is up for auction (at the link in our profile) to raise funds for our Safeguard Coastal Carnivores campaign to permanently end commercial trophy hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest. Karen Cooper is a Vancouver artist whose nature photography became a passion developed through her healing process after a car accident in 2000. She opened the Karen Cooper Gallery on Granville Island in 2010 (one of the locations for @raincoastconservation’s One Shot Exhibit) and she also has an established photography blog called My Boots n Me. We’re grateful for the generosity of the artists who came together to create this unique exhibit.
