Courtney launched her Kickstarter for her new environmental documentary about the Guardians of the Great Bear Rainforest.
The film is about the erosion of science in Canada, told through the eyes of Guardians of the Great Bear Rainforest.
Guardians live on boats in the depths of the wilderness. full time, in order to monitor wildlife. Their lives are epic: the oldest Guardian has been living on his boat for 39 years, and every day he moves his boat to a new location, drops anchor, and then wades through streams (while dodging grizzlies!) to count salmon. But alas, Canada’s last prime minister, Stephen Harper, changed a bunch of environmental legislation, closed science libraries, shuttered science offices, and silenced scientists, so now there’s not much monitoring of the environment going on. AND, all of this is happening at a time when liquefied natural gas terminals are planned for the coast.
Courtney lived on boats in the wilderness for 2 months to shoot this film!
