Dan Lewis

Executive Director of Clayoquot Action

Dan Lewis turned from kayak guiding to conservation activism in self defence — the lands he visited were being destroyed by clearcut logging. He has been active in the Clayoquot Sound movement for 25 years, and was one of the principal organizers of the Clayoquot mass protests in the summer of 1993.

He is executive director of Clayoquot Action in Tofino, B.C.
