The Great Bear Rainforest

The August, 2011 issue of National Geographic  Magazine  showcases the Great Bear Rainforest as well as the communities, wildlife and ecosystems that would be affected by Enbridge Inc.'s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline project.
Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway project would pipe Alberta tar sands crude to Kitimat, and ship it to Asia in supertankers that would navigate the perilous channels and inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest—the world’s largest intact temperate coastal rainforest.
From Kitimat, British Columbia, the waterways of the Great Bear Rainforest would become an expressway for giant oil supertankers, loaded with condensate, on a transport route to Asian markets.
