Grizzly Bears on the verge of extiction in the North Cascades
1 year ago

Hello

My Name is Scott and I am a filmmaker and outdoor enthusiast from Seattle, WA.




I am filming a new documentary movie about the search for grizzly bears in the North Cascades National Forest, in an attempt get the fist ever documented video footage of a grizzly bear in the North Cascades.




Our Film "Cascade Giants" is a powerful visual journey of exploration & beauty through the North Cascade mountain range in a search for the last of the remaining Grizzlies."



We are trying to raise funding for this project through a KickStarter campaign and we where hoping this project would be something that you might want to endorse and would want share with your social network.




Here is a link to our project: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/100544870/cascade-giants




Please take a moment to check it out, please share, and remember if you like the project please help support the film.




Thanks.




See you in the mountains!

Hi Scott, We have a CBC program The Nature of Things hosted by Canada's most well known scientist/environmentalist, David Suzuki.  An episode this yr. was called The Last Grizzly of Paradise Valley.  Just thought you might be interested in looking at the link about it.  Good luck with your Doc.

For 25 years Canadian wildlife filmmaker Jeff Turner had made a career out of filming grizzly bears, but he has never even seen one in his home mountains – the North Cascade Mountains of Southwestern Canada. These rugged mountains are not a National Park or a protected area. It is forested land, most of which continues to be logged. These changes threaten the future of wild animals like the grizzlies, which have almost disappeared from the Cascades.


In this film Jeff Turner returns to his roots and embarks on a beautiful and lyrical exploration of the wildlife around his home in the Cascade Mountains of Southwestern British Columbia. His goal is to find and film one of the handful of grizzly bears still left in these mountains
