The first is from northern Vancouver Island's own diver, whale researcher and naturalist extraordinaire - the Marine Detective. I love this video because it brilliantly illustrates the rich and diverse sea life that we are so very fortunate to have on this coast.
This video originally appeared on The Marine Detective blog, which you can see here.
Of course, this video was made to highlight what is at risk if projects like the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline come to the BC coast. The second video has a similar visual message and was made in response to the Enbridge pipeline animation video, in which roughly 1000 square kilometers of islands were removed from the treacherous approach to Kitimat. The video below mostly deals with the wetland habitat along the pipeline route between northern Alberta and Kitimat, but it has such beautiful footage of these areas and the coast near Kitimat that I had to share it. Enjoy!
