See the Great Bear Rainforest Like You’ve Never Seen It Before (VIDEO)

Have you ever witnessed a wolf hunting salmon or a pup learning to fish? How about sea otters sleeping in kelp beds or an oyster chick taking its first attempt at flight?

These amazing and rare-to-the-public scenes from Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest can be available to everyone with your help.

A new campaign called Great Bear LIVE from Canadian conservation nonprofit Pacific Wild Alliance is looking to raise greater awareness about the unspoiled wild wonders of the Great Bear Rainforest, one of the largest remaining temperate rainforests in the world that’s home to an array of wildlife from wolves and whales to bears and seals.

According to the organization’s  crowdfunding page, Great Bear LIVE is “an innovative research project and conservation tool that transmits live wildlife video and audio streams from the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest to your personal computer anywhere in the world.” The project aims to connect us with the region to inspire better protection of its pristine ecosystem along with teaching us about its many threats.

One of the Great Bear Rainforest’s biggest looming threats is Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline, which would bring tanker traffic and pipeline trails into the forest. According to a recent Oceans Institute study, if any oil spill occurred it would greatly endanger the area’s humpback whales, not to mention other wildlife and habitat.

There are only six days left to help Pacific Wild Alliance reach its $28,000 CAD ($26455.02 USD) goal, which would allow the organization to purchase a night vision camera and a HD PTZ underwater camera to bring the Great Bear Rainforest to the world like never before.

Right now, the nonprofit has raised $7,729 CAD ($7296.33 USD). Consider supporting the campaign by visiting its crowdfunding page here, and check out just a sliver of the stunning footage the Pacific Wild Alliance has already capturing with the video below.
