Sierra Club’s Mark Worthing, Animal & Environment Alliance Advocate Jordan Reichert

Mark Worthing is a multidisciplinary activist, naturalist and journalist who has an affinity for the wilder landscapes of British Columbia.  Mark is often found exploring coastal estuaries and rainforests, researching northern resident orcas, occupying tar sands pipelines, or reading about biodiversity in the Flathead River Basin in the southern Rockies. He has written for the University of Victoria’s Martlet Independent student newspaper and as a freelance journalist while completing his undergraduate degree in Political Science & Environmental Studies.  Mark is a founding member of Tanker Free BC, and works as Sierra Club BC’s Flathead Outreach Coordinator.

Jordan Reichert was a federal candidate in Canada’s 2015 national election, aligned with the Animal Alliance Environment Voters (AAEV) Party of Canada which is dedicated to raising awareness and improving the status of non-human animals.  Jordan believes that the moral baseline of a society is measured by its treatment of those most vulnerable within it, and he’s concerned about non-human animals who are defined as property under the Canadian Criminal Code, and lack recognition as contributing members of society.
