I recently came across my new favourite video on youtube. This awe-inspiring video of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest summarizes the beauty and pristine nature of this area. The Great Bear Rainforest spans 12,000 square miles (or 32,000 square km) of BC’s temperate rainforest. This part of Canada has been in the news quite a bit lately due to the Northern Gateway Pipelines Project. This project would expose this region to crude oil tanker traffic that would regularly pass through the narrow channels. Simply put, it’s not a matter of if an oil tanker were to spill, but when.
Devin Supertramp, the videographer behind this amazing video, managed to not only capture the wild expanse of this beautiful BC rainforest, but also some insanely awesome shots of the wildlife that call this part of Canada home.
