British Columbia is home to some of the few remaining areas of un-touched wilderness on planet Earth. These are truly rare, amazing, and sacred places, some of which we have been fortunate enough to live next to, or within.
Right now, a multinational logging corporation based in B.C., with government approval, is determined to continue cutting the ancient forests in the Fairy Creek area — one of the last such places on Earth — but are being held off by a rapidly growing number of non violent and very determined people putting themselves in harm's way. At this point in time, this has become the only option left to them to protect the forests and ancient trees - some of which are 1500-2000 years old.
