Why VHS opposes the Northern Gateway pipeline
British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest is home to an abundance of wildlife. Kermode bears (spirit bears), Grizzly bears, wolves, whales, salmon and many other species depend on the forest and its pristine waterways and coastline for their survival.
The proposed Northern Gateway pipeline will deliver oil to giant tankers plying the rugged coastal waters of the Rainforest, putting the welfare wildlife at risk. For that reason, VHS supports the efforts of environmental groups opposed to the pipeline. We urge our supporters, other animal welfare groups and animal lovers everywhere to do the same.
Photographs and video footage of the Great Bear Rainforest and its wildlife show just what is at stake in the fight to stop the pipeline. They show just how unique the forest is and how precious the animals are.
