The Great Bear Sea
No place for an oil pipeline
All five species of Pacific salmon are found here. It’s home to humpback and orca whales, as well as dolphins and porpoises. Extraordinary animals like Pacific coastal wolves and the rare white Spirit Bears live nowhere else on Earth.
This is one of the richest and most spectacular ecosystems on our planet. And its future is in our hands.
Raise your voice to protect the Great Bear Sea
The Northern Gateway Project proposes to build twin pipelines from the Alberta tar sands through the Great Bear Sea, to the B.C. coast. The 1,170-kilometre route would bisect the rainforest. The pipelines would transport toxic oil sands bitumen across hundreds of salmon streams. The pipeline would bring as many as 220 supersized oil tankers into B.C.’s sensitive coastal waters every year.
