This awesome short film, called Kayaking the Great Bear: A Search for Wilderness, was created by a friend of my family’s. It’s really well done and full of beautiful scenery. The video and the description below are all from the associated webpage. Enjoy and share!
After discussing the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline–which would carry bitumen from Alberta’s tar sands to the Great Bear rainforest of northern British Columbia, three friends decided to go see the area for themselves. Having heard that hidden in the rainforest which surrounds the twisting pacific channels are tiny abandoned trappers’ cabins, the group packed everything they would need for eight days into their kayaks and headed out into the world’s largest temperate rainforest in search of something which is becoming increasingly rare: wilderness.
The group was made up of:
Spencer Taft, masters ecology student
Daniel Robb, extreme outdoor adventurer and guide
Paul Manning-Hunter, Canadian National Whitewater Kayak Slalom team member
