Video: Resisting Shell’s plan to frack Sacred Headwaters in British Colombia

29 Sep

In a remote part of northwestern British Columbia lies the Sacred Headwaters. It’s where three important wild salmon rivers originate – the Skeena, Nass and Stikine. First Nations and local communities depend on the vitality of the Headwaters for their livelihoods. And yet, this is a paradise in peril. Shell plans to frack for coalbed methane gas in the region. ForestEthics Advocacy made this digital short to highlight the community members who call this stunning corner of the world their home.
