Wildlife in The Great Bear Region of Canada, including the Humpback Whale, are in danger of losing their homes and worse!

 

"The Northern Gateway Oil Pipeline project proposes to build twin pipelines 1,170 km long from the Alberta oil sands to Kitimat BC, bisecting the Great Bear region. The proposed project, slated for decision by the Canadian government in 2014, will transport 525,000 barrels per day of toxic diluted bitumen over hundreds of salmon rivers to BC’s coast. From here, more than 220 supersized oil tankers will transport it through narrow channels over crucial habitat for endangered humpback whales." - WWF

      "The spirit bear (also known as the Kermode bear) is a white variant of the north american black bear. It's found almost exclusively in the Great Bear Rainforest. A region that runs 250 miles down Canada's western coast and is home to grizzlies, black bears, wolves, wolverines, humpback whales, and orcas that thrive there. It's a spooky, wild, mysterious place that has western red cedar trees that have stood for a thousand years or more, and black bears that are white."

      Oil is doomed, opening more pipelines is short sighted and entirely out of touch with the very real and very impactful changes in clean energy will be having in the next century.

      Just because I'm not in Canada doesn't mean I can't support the animals I love!

      I don't think we want to make the whales endangered any time soon do we? A failure is going to cause more of a cleanup than the money made.
