SAJO on RESPECT

SAJO Gallery

RESPECT is a journey over Canada’s boreal forest. It is a fusion of the arts and the environment. SAJO has supported RESPECT since its inception both financially and in-kind. Although we have backed previous preservation work in the boreal forest, this unique approach was something we pioneered for two reasons; one, we wanted
our voice to be heard and two, we understand that corporations have an obligation to make a positive contribution.

SAJOThe outcome of any project is always enhanced when diverse groups combine their talents and RESPECT has indeed brought together just such a group; photographers, journalists, First Nations, big business, environmental agencies, artists, city planning committees, a pilot and the public.

Whether we realize it or not the boreal forest is an important part of our lives. The Canadian boreal forest is one of very few remaining intact forests left in our world. Its wetlands filter millions of liters of water daily, the forest helps protect against climate change by storing carbon, and it is home to many indigenous and non-indigenous peoples not to mention numerous species of animals, insects, plants and birds. In fact many species of birds spend their summers in the boreal forest before heading south for the winter.

RESPECT showcases this fragile beauty in all its splendor and brings it to an audience using the perfect venue - outdoors. The end result – beautiful photographs for the enjoyment of everyone. SAJO is extremely pleased to be part of this creative and informative project!
