WATCH: “Bringing Back the Light” – Restoring the Life to Canada’s Temperate Rainforests

When humans have changed a landscapes as profoundly as they have in some parts of the coastal Temperate Rainforest, there is a responsibility to start addressing some of the problems that might cause,” Andy Mackinnon says.

Interviewed by filmmaker Marc Wyatt, the forest ecologist highlights the beauty and the problems of the forest in British Columbia.

Our coast is one of the most beautiful places in the world, but decades of destructive logging, mining, and development practices have left vast expanses of our temperate rainforest in need of a helping hand“, Wyatt adds.

His film “Bringing Back the Light” shows the practice, the methods and the need for habitat restoration and, at the same time, gives an overview of what the Clayoquot Sound on the Westcoast of Vancouver Island looks like at the moment.
