Tom Parkin of Nanaimo (b. 1951) and Parks Canada naturalist Dennis Horwood of Kitimat co-wrote a natural history guide to the Queen Charlotte Islands entitled Haida Gwaii: Islands of Discovery (Heritage House, 2000). It was republished as Haida Gwaii; The Queen Charlotte Islands (Heritage House, 2006, 2009, 2014). An avid birder, Horwood has provided thousands of bird sightings for the Royal B.C. Museum and he wrote Birds of the Kitimat Valley, published in 1992. He studied biology at the University of Victoria.
