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
