Students around the world took part in climate change protests on Friday, March 15, 2019. The protesters are demanding stronger government action on climate change, including a law to limit global warming to 1.5 C. Organizers said that under current commitments, the temperature could rise twice that much by 2020.
On Wednesday, B.C. conservationist and filmmaker Ian McAllister was in Victoria for the première of his new Imax film Great Bear Rainforest: Land of the Spirit Bear.
McAllister, who came up with the name Great Bear Rainforest, has been dedicated to protecting the wilderness that is one of the world’s largest temperate rainforests. The film, which took three years to create using the latest lightweight Imax cameras, is part of his efforts to show the world how important it is to preserve the rare and fragile forest.
