A beautiful short animation focusing on the whales of the Great Bear Rainforest. Produced by Picture Cloud film & animation of Victoria B.C. this visually stunning and thought provoking animation explores the dire threats facing whales by acoustic ship pollution.
The return of humpback and other species of cetaceans to the waters of the Great Bear Rainforest is a welcome event since the dark days when whale killing ships traveled our waters. But this may be short lived if oil tankers begin moving Alberta tar sands crude through the Great Bear's fragile waters.

In June 2012, a group of Quest University students travelled to the Great Bear Rainforest, through BC’s Inside Passage and arrived in the remote First Nations community of Hartley Bay. Here, they learned firsthand about the potential impacts of the Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal on Gitga’at culture and traditions. Quest students, along with youth from the Hartley Bay Secondary School, joined together on a once in a lifetime journey through the pristine waters of BC’s temperate rainforest. Together they paddled from Hartley Bay to the Gitga’at’s spring-harvest camp in Kiel. They journeyed through a portion of the proposed tanker route for the Northern Gateway project, the same area where the ferry Queen of the North sank in 2006. Through this life-changing experience, participants bared witness to the unparalleled natural abundance of the Great Bear Rainforest. This documentary film provides a platform for youth to speak out and express their perspectives and opinions of the pipeline proposal, while celebrating land, culture, and to promoting a more sustainable future.
