Tara Cullis

November 22, 2019

Tara Cullis is an award-winning writer and a former lecturer at Harvard who left academia to concentrate on ecological activism. She is co-founder and President of the David Suzuki Foundation, and her struggles on behalf of the environment have led her to Southeast Asia, the Amazon Rainforest and the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. In seeking to protect the latter region, Tara helped foster an historic alliance of coastal Indigenous peoples; she has since been adopted and named by the Haida, Gitga’at, Heltsuk and Nam’gis First Nations.
