Hornby Island, British Columbia, Canada
latitude: N 49° 30' 48.45"
longitude: W 124° 42' 14.75"
On the outside of the restaurant, not far from where you wait for the ferry.
Installed at the Thatch Pub, right where the ferry from Denman lands. The ceremony was delightfully attended, including some wonderful cookies that paid special tribute to the Uintotheria. The several local supporters who have been heavily involved in the creature's preservation showed us their gratitude which we were grateful for.
The event even including an appearance by nobility, the Lord and Lady of Balls. There was a little controversy over the plaque's reference to the slang term, "Tagan Brides," but all who had seen a Hornby Uintotheria in person agreed they were remarkably dear. Hope we'll see you there.
