Being Caribou – June 28, 2006

The last screening for the Awareness Video Night season will be held on June 28th at 7 p.m. at Edward Milne Community School Theatre. This month’s film is “Being Caribou”, a National Film Board documentary featuring environmentalist Leanne Allison and wildlife biologist Karsten Heuer as they follow a herd of 120,000 caribou on foot across 1500 kilometres of rugged Arctic tundra. The husband and wife team want to raise awareness of threats to the caribou’s survival. During the 5 month journey they ski and hike across mountains, swim icy rivers, brave Arctic weather and endure hordes of mosquitoes and an encounter with a grizzly bear. An inspiring and beautiful film.
